Okay, peeps I have been gone for quite awhile and I can now give you a update on what I have been up to besides knitting and living.


So, on March 17th we got on a party bus to celebrate a 40th birthday. The bus was so sweet. It had a DVD player, music, strobe lights, a bathroom and blacken windows. We had a excellent time, and they are thinking about doing one to Canada. There was no need to stop, except for a smoke break, because you know how I feel about the smoking thing. We left Bowie, MD to go to NYC to Il Bastardo in Chelsea. It was a nice Italian steakhouse. It was a great concept. We didn't have to get off to use the bathroom and everyone who do drink could. I was excited for one because I got to watch the game while they were acting a fool. God I love college basketball. March is the month for me. Maryland lost, which I knew they were, but GEORGETOWN won, which I am happy about because it would of been a bummer on the trip.

On the 24th we attend my MIL birthday party at the Cheesecake Factory. Anyone who knows me know that I can not stand the place. The food is too overrated they pile the food up and than it taste like crap. The only thing they have going is the cheesecake and that is not worth the wait. My advice is to just go and get the cheesecake curbside. Ugh. We waited so long to get in and it wasn't Ruth Chris. I am not even going to waste my time talking nor writing about the place. All I am going to say is that they were correct to put Factory in the name. Sunday we went out to a nice place with excellent service Longhorn Steakhouse the flo steak is delicious. We all enjoyed our food. My husbands steak was not cooked the way he wanted it and they apologized and bought him out a new steak done the way he wanted. The manager came over and apologized and asked to bring us appetizer and we told him that it wasn't necessary. But we will definitely eat there again. Afterwards we went to Coldstone and got ice cream and ate outside and watched the ducks. And more basketball - LET'S GO HOYAS!!!


I have started so many projected and then quite them all. I am now a one project woman (said that before). I am just going to knit the Clementine Shawlette and than go from there. I ordered some yarn to do other projects in the Spring Interweave, i will show you it later (another long story - tomorrow).

Okay here it is short and sweet. Not that I have a following or anything, but I figured it has been a while since I have written. IT'S SPRINGTIME. These are the shoes I wore to work today to celebrate the excellent weather we will have in the nation's capitol today (81). I think it will get to maybe 85 and than it is suppose to drop. Anyway, quick right. Okay, so now I am working on the Clementine Shawlette out of Interweave Knits for the mother-in-law. I am loving the blue sky alpaca. It is so soft now I see what all the rave is about. It is such a nice day I will have to check in later.

Oh, here is progress:

How are you? It is 81 degrees here in Washington, DC and I am loving it. Cherry Blossoms and all.

Guess who got hitched.....

Okay, it's me!!! Friday, me and my boyfriend of 15 years decided to make it legal. We already feel like we are man and wife. Hell, we have the kids, house and car. And we still act like lovebirds. Anyway, I was content with being the girlfriend and he was not. We experience a lot of death the past couple of weeks and we realized that if something happened his family or mines could step in (anna nicole) and demand that I want this or that and we didn't want that. So, I am now a married woman.

Knitting - I am starting to wind some Claudia Handpainted sockyarn, picks to come later.

Chow for now.
