high five escalator

I first heard of Improv Everywhere through "This American Life", a show on NPR ... yes I listen to NPR ... almost everyday, it makes work go by faster. They did a story on them and some of the skits that they do to make everyday life a little bit more interesting. This is a recent one that makes me laugh, because I know if I took a subway everyday and saw this, it would have made my day a little bit better. Check out the video.

crazy sexy wool

I am in love with this yarn store that opened in New York City ... I wish it was here in the midwest and that I could afford to shop there. It is the perfect type of yarn for what I knit.

So great...look at how chunky that yarn is! I love it!

missed an important date!

I forgot to add that we celebrated our 1 year anniversary as a married couple! We have now been together for 5 years! It's amazing how time flies. I was recently asked if I still love Zach as much as I did when we first got married. My response? "I think I love him more."

3 month wrap up

This is the problem with blogs. I start them but have a hard time being consistent with them. Christmas was great. Zach and I got to spend the day with my family in St. Louis. It was such a great long week off for both of us to enjoy each side of our family. January and February flew by just as fast as usual. I have been knitting like crazy. I feel like in my evenings, it's the only thing I enjoy doing because I can relax at the same time. I have even sold one of my favorite scarves on etsy. I really hope she enjoyed it, she sent me a very nice note about how great the photos made it look!

I really need to catch up on my freelance work for the salon materials I am working on. I am very far behind. Each day seems to come and go and by the time I would actually start working on stuff, the evening/weekend is almost over (hence tonight). Zach is gone for a week. Which makes me really sad. I already miss him and is only been like 20 hrs. or something.... I truely hope I can take advantage of the time that I have this week and that my mind is not always on missing him.
On another note. He finishes grad school in 2 months!! We can't wait. Below are some tulips my love gave me for valentines day. Aren't they beautiful? I love happy tulips!
