Party time!

Me and my bestie!!!!! I bought her a little tiara that says Happy 40th Birthday on it with some mardi graw beads that say 40 on them.... And 2 huge balloons.

This is my best friend of 30 years! I love her to death!! It was her 40th birthday finally on the 16th, of course i had to make a special trip up north to see and be with her on such a traumatic time...lol I had so much fun, and let it be known that Barb finally drank so much she puked...it was a monumental moment! She was happy about it, she said "I finally feel normal"...lol whatever!

On Wednesday I weighed myself not thinking that anything was going to change and FINALLY I dropped another pound...for a little while i was up a pound or two then back down but never getting under the last weight....but finally i made progress...it gave me some incentive...hoping for this Wednesday to be the same..
See ya after Christmas, Hope you all have a great one!!!

Finally get to show it off

I started this project earlier this year. Could not show it off because it was intended to give to a friend that lives in Illinois and he reads my blog. But now that it is sent and he has it and Loves it by the way, I can finally show you all! Took me about 4 months to make, I am pretty proud of it. I know where I could have done better and in the future know that i could do better but for the most part for a beginner crocheter, i'm thinking not bad. Right now I am working on another blanket for my best friend in the whole wide world using a Larksfoot pattern, I am loving the design, it's in her favorite colors wine and navy blue. Can't wait to show you all that one.

I also made a baby blanket to a friend at work that just had a baby but totally forgot to take a picture of it. I was in a hurry since she was not supposed to have the baby till end of December or beginning of January and decided to have it in the middle of November. I'm just glad the baby is doing so well, she came out of the hospital the day before Thanksgiving, weeks before the doctors thought she was gonna. Ah the power of prayer!

Anyhoo, have a great holiday people if i don't get on here till then :)
