pillow talk, handy husband, and day off

One of my favorite times with Doug is as we're laying in bed about to go to sleep. Last night we were talking about who knows what and I can't remember what he said, but it ended in "... you will be". Which of course there is only one way to say "you will be" and that is in a Yoda voice. So I'm talking in a Yoda voice and then started talking about the new Star Wars movie and then we're both trying to do a Chewbacca voice which sounded like we were strangling a goat. It was hilarious. I just was thinking if September was wondering what was going on.
Ahhh... good times....
So. My handy hubby solved the problem of losing our laundry and September shelves to the pantry
take an unused space above the dryer
add a couple shelves
pile your stuff on there and decide it looks too messy
ta-da! after a couple of JoAnn's baskets half-off, it looks pretty good!
Other things going on lately was meeting my prego friend Liz at this cupcake place on my day off. I didn't even like cupcakes until Jill introduced me (I curse/love you Jill!!) On Tuesdays the minis are on sale for a dollar and the big ones for 2. So we got quite the smorgasbord and shared and talked. It was nice. The German chocolate is still my fave. I'm praying her baby comes on a day off so I can be there!
Then I finished reading our book club book The Rosie Project (recommended by Joel, thanks!) while snuggling with little furry
And lastly I'm very proud of my progress on my new crochet project. Two crochet classes under my belt, and taking a tip from Doug, I youtube'd videos to learn how to do stitches I didn't know what the heck they were talking about. I think it's working!
Although it's not really much quicker than knitting as I had hoped, it is kinda fun, and different.


  1. The laundry shelf looks AWESOME! I'll have to check out that book, love a fun read! And great job on the crochet project! So cute and great color!

  2. Do you have a GoodReads account?

    1. No. The bookclub girls just take turns suggesting stuff whoever's heard of something good recently
