This trip is over and not without its share of DRAMA!! Adam and I are POOPED!! We got into Charlotte at around midnight and found our baggage was NOT there. (SIGH) we waited in line for another hour and drove home to our pugs and our bed around 4:30 AM. It seems like we have been gone FOREVER.
BAD NEWS though.... I took a skein of each color extra on this trip for my Hanne Mermaid. I knit on the way out and somehow left that ziplock in the rental car. I only had 1 skein of the sand color and thought that I must have more at home... BUT NO. I am dead out. anyone out there with any to spare??!!! I seriously dont know what to do. AHHHHHH. SO i cant knit that, so i thought now I will buckle down and focus on DEMI, when i found that Lucy had gotten her paws on my pattern and shred it. WHY!!! AHHHHH!!!
I finally feel like I have some time to get some knitting done, and I cant do either of my projects! I DONT WANT TO START A NEW ONE (Imagine me kicking and screaming right now) AHHHHHHHHHHH!
Anyways, enjoy the picts.

We are having a great time in Ca and time is flying by really fast!! Yesterday was the summer solstice, and we were at a place on the beach called "natural bridge" at sunset. We were all wearing white shirts and jeans and got our pictures taken professionally at the beach. It was a BEAUTIFUL evening!!! We also had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants Cafe Sparrow. YUM!!
Today we are hanging out with Erin, adam's sister. I think we are going to go to Monterey to shop or go tot he aqarium. I will be sure to take pictures of this. Adam's 10 year reunion is this evening too- I hope we have a good time:)
I hope everyone else is having a good week!! Stay tunes for more adventures.

Hello fellow Bloggers. Adam and I are about to take our bi-yearly trip to the west coast to visit our family. It's a trip we look forward to, and were excited to go:) Luckily we got our good friend John to house sit and stay with our babies! That makes things a lot easier for us:)
So now I am faced with the all too familiar dilemma... What will be this trip's knitting project?? Should I carry around my Hanne... with all her skeins and bulkiness? Should I pull out one of my other UFO's? SIGH.... Last trip I knitted about 6inches of the sock from KNITTY and i havent touched it since. I have no idea where I am in this cabled pattern... SIGH
Here are my choices to knit- I NEED YOUR HELP!!
1. Suck it up and take Hanne. I could get a lot done...
2. Start the other sock in my existing sock....
3. Start a new project completely...
what should I do!!!??? I dont have a new project in mind. SIGH SIGH SIGH
On other news. I had a GREAT b-day once again! Adam and I went to lunch at Cabo Fish Taco... yum.. Dinner at Kabuki, and cake and wii with friends afterwards! Thank you all for you wishes of a good b-day because they came true!!
PLUS- I got a new cell phone and wonderful shoes! (ohmygod, SHOES!)
I might not blog for a few days due to trip! Love you all!!!

So Thursday is flag day, which is reason to celebrate indeed because we love the flag. ALSO... its my birthday! Woo hoo! I don't know why it is, but I love my birthday :) I remember growing up my b-day was always such a special day. Here are some b-days I remember from my past...
1. 5th b-day (?) my mom got a clown to come juggle fire- pony rides
2. My Little Pony Cake. I loved that cake mom!!!
3. My brother in tight boyscout shorts playing "Miss MIss" to win some silly puddy!!
4. The pool party.. first co-ed party
5. Party at the mini golf place. I got TONS of NKOTB stuff!!! (New Kids on the Block)
6. Slumber parties...
7. Roller skate party (was that mine?)
I'm sure there are more memories, but I cant remember EVERYTHING! I basically think birthdays are so fun because you can do what you want and everyone is nice to you. Shouldn't everyday be that way?~~
Anyways, I'm having cake and ice cream at 7 at my house. If you are interested... (and not someone creepy...) you can come. Email me and i will tell you more. firstname.lastname@example.org is my email... for now, enjoy this picture!

Hey everyone! I thought I would blog tonight because I am a sick face and stuck on my couch. I feel like crap, and NYQuil will soon help me. I hope this is the worst of it. I hate being sick.
So, whats new with me? You ask. Well... not much. Yesterday after work I was enjoying my dinner at KOBE with Adam when someone ran in shouting "is that your dog in the road?" She proceeded to tell me that a Boston Terrier was running loose in the Mosaic parking lot. Well, it wasnt a Boston, it was a white short haired Chihuahua. I chased him around until a nice lady helped grab him. He was scared. I took him around the parking lot asking people if he was theirs since he didnt have a tag. THEN... the little lady that does my nails, Kim, runs out of her store yelling "THAT MY DOG THAT MY DOG!!!" Then she grabbed him and kissed him and stared running back to the store with him. I didnt feel right about it so I yelled. "Whats his name"... she laughed, and took him in the store. I almost left him. I turned around to walk away when i saw him chasing after me... ears back and terrified. To Kim, it was a silly joke. To me, i thought it was not funny to say the least. What would have happened if I left him.. geee...
Then I took the guy around to the surrounding apartments. We walked and talked to people on the street... knocked on doors. NO LUCK. I had him for 2.5 hours. I finally went and sat at SBucks. Finally his real owner found us. I hope little "ROcky" is happy tonight. (I liked the name i gave him better- KOBE"
On the knitting side of my life- Hanne is exactly half way through. I love it. I just wrapped up the knit sleeping mask I made for my friend. I made it from Debbie Bliss pure silk. It was FABULOUS!

Well, I'm home now after a wonderful road trip with my Mosaic friends to TNNA in Ohio. I had such a WONDERFUL time and I have such high expectations for a WONDERFUL blog entry, but I am exhausted and dont even know what to write or how to start SOOO.... I will do what I do best... make a list of memorable things from the trip. No order.
1. People I met: Debbie Bliss, Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton, Louisa Harding, Maggie Jackson, Jane Ellison, Anne Modesitt, Amy Singer, Nicky Epstein,
Places I went: Hyatt, WONDERFUL restaurant, vogue fashion show, vogue coctail party, TNNA convention...
Cornelia telling me that I was "so cute!" while eating breakfast with us..
Debbie bliss kissing my cheek,
Talking to Sion Elalouf with food on my face, Farting at the vogue party, Laughing SO hard at dinner, Singing the Beatles songs with Debbie like a couple of drunken sailors, Talking about EVERYTHING imaginable with the ladies... and I mean EVERYTHING. Debbie's hot flashes, Belinda's spazms, Gina's long sighs...ahhhhhh...., Loren passed out comatose on the bed with open pizza box and blaring TV... Debbies skin peeling, Bel's hand washing, and Gina's face while saying "oh my god! SHOES!" Lorens foot Blisters...
We saw amazing yarn, amazing people, and had the best time getting to know eachother better. Over all, 2 thumbs up to TNNA trip 2007. I cant wait for 2008!!
