31 and 8 years

It's been a busy week over here. Much knitting has gone on...but it's all Christmas knitting. DRAT! So no pictures for a while around here...unless I can sneak in some fun knitting for me.

This past week I celebrated my 31st birthday. It was one of the best birthdays in years. The hubster took the day off, allowed me to sleep in and took care of the 'Nut, made me a homemade breakfast, took the 'Nut out for 3 hours in the afternoon so I could knit and watch a movie in peace, gave me the BEST SHOES EVER, and took me out for a yummy dinner. Couldn't ask for more.

Today is our 8th wedding anniversary. We aren't doing anything much today except I'm cooking a really nice dinner...organic balsamic chicken, mashed garlic red potatoes, fresh organic green beans paired with a really nice white Australian wine and chocolate mousse torte for dessert. We had talked about watching our wedding video...we'll see. Next week my MIL is taking the 'Nut for her first sleepover at Grandma's house so we can go out to a nice dinner and movie and have a night alone. I'm SO looking forward to that.

(yes, clear braces...LOL!)

It's amazing to me the changes in our lives in 8 years. We've had good times and bad but have proved that we can make it thru anything as long as we love each and want to make it work. I love you Bri...and look forward to celebrating many more. Mwah.

ps - i feel ya about the christmas knitting...i've got lots of FO's, but i can't show and tell bc they are all gifts. some of my JK yarn is begging to be knit into a shrug though...so i may need to sneak in a little "me" knitting.

i'm sorry that i haven't been able to catch you yet. i'm headed to the post office hopefully one day this week. (your gifts of course!!)

p.s. watch your video, i'm sure you'll see jenn opening her eyes and looking around during a prayer at one point or another. she always does that.
