This is why I love thrift shops.

Where else could you get six legal pads (I love those things), five folders, and a super-expensive tie for $8.14?

Also, look at these AWESOME suspenders.

One Year Blogiversary!

Yay! I can’t believe I’ve made 262 posts, and had 1,342 views, and 251 comments. That’s freaking crazy.

I also can’t believe that I didn’t post on Leap Day. It’s my favorite day… but I don’t even know what happened with that.


If you want to relive the strangeness that is my life… check my first post out and yeah. Have a great day.

now I have something to do for the rest of winter break

… besides finish my English project. ahem.

Because today, I helped my mom’s friend (who got hurt) package up books to ship off. She’s a book rep, and sheย receivesย about 600 pounds of books 3 times a year. And since she’s hurt (she slipped a disk working) she asked me to help her. Woohoo! I lifted 475 pounds of books today. I’d say that’s my workout for the whole week. My back is still sore. But hey, I plan to enjoy my last 3 days, 10 hours, and 58 minutes of break. Yes, I have a timer on my desktop.

I will be spending the rest of my winter break reading the 22 books (plus 5 for my brother, plus a box set of the Graceling series) that I got today. Well, not all of them. I’ve got 6 set aside that I’m hoping to finish soon.

The sad thing is, today was the most fun day I’ve had all winter break. Well, not so sad. Getting 27/30 books in one day (for free) is not sad. Not at all.

Sweater Diaries #9 and Lock-ins…

Today I started knitting all the way around the sweater… including the sleeves! Thanks LOTR, you made 3.5 hrs of knitting straight possible.

Eek! Almost done with the sweater!

Eek! Almost done with the sweater!

Sorry for the mess haha… I didn’t feel like cleaning up.

Today I’ve also got a church lock-in. Pretty much, 5 or so of us high schoolers from my church/friends/another church are going to spend the night in my church, watching movies (The Matrix… bring it on) and pretty much chiling out. The only sad thing is that I’m the only girl (MIMI YOU DITCHED ME ๐Ÿ˜ฅ )

So if you don’t hear from me tomorrow, you’ll know that I got kidnapped by those suspicious high school boys. At least I’ve got Keanu Reeves to save me, though.

Until next time, Em ๐Ÿ™‚

Sweater Diaries #7

Today I made a lot of progress on my sweater – I finished the second sleeve, I’m done with half of the body, and I started a matching hat.

I also started the Bach Cello Suite #1 which I am super excited about!
