Color me Organic, Baby.

I'm back. It was actually REALLY nice not to have to think about blogging. I feel really guilty when I don't blog. Like I'm doing some disservice to myself and my readers or something. Sorry 'bout that.

So you know, I gift knit. A lot. A lot of the recipients of said gifties read this blog so it's hard to post till I actually gift the goods. This past Thursday...or shall I use the Buggernut's fav phrase...last Thursday....I spent time with a very dear friend of mine, Mikael. We've known each other for 7 years this summer. I luff her. She is funny, kind, very warm and open and I feel like I can tell her anything...she's just one of those friends. She's also preggers with her 3rd baby. This is amazing to me...not that she is pregnant for a 3rd time, but that when she was preggers with her first baby we had just met. Life changes so much in 7 years. Anywho, we met up at her house and then headed off to Cibo for a fabu-lass dinner. We gnoshed and talked up a storm. Then we headed back to her house for a slice of heaven aka Trader Joe's Mud Pie (hellllllllo...this is my new fav!) and gifties. Now she's a lot like me with gifts. I love givin', but hate receivin'. It's not that I don't appreciate the thought or anything, but I get embarrassed. I knew she was like this too, but I couldn't resist knitting her something for the new babe.

These are extremely crapalicious pictures because The Nut was napping and I had to photo in my bedroom. So I'm hoping she might post some pics to her blog when the new babe comes...since she's an amazing photographer and all. :)

Oh my, blush!

My two boys have been fighting over who gets to play with the bunny and blanket until the new baby gets here.

Amanda, thank you so much for your love and kindness.

BTW, the material is so soft.
