Sweater Diaries #8

Today I went shopping and saw Snowflake Lane, which definitely did NOT live up to my expectations. I was expecting a parade type thing, and instead they just played music and some people were playing the drums (how you can play the drums to “What Makes You Beautiful,” I do not know) and everyone was honking their stupid noise makers right in my ear. On purpose (cough my brother cough)… yep, not my idea of a fun night. A night in with Skylar Astin via “Pitch Perfect”? Yep. Perfect night right there.

Anyways, my family and I went shopping and I got this cute peacoat at JCPenney because (a) I’ve needed/wanted a peacoat since, like, the 7th grade and (b) because it was on sale (yay boxing day and clearance sales!)

I also knit more of my sweater (I am seriously despising this thing now… I wish I was DONE already), and I got new knitting needles (47″ holy mustaches… super long but perfect for knitting a sweater!)


Almost done with the body... so close

74 rows out of 80... almost there!

74 rows out of 80… almost there!

After I finish the 6 rows remaining, I will add the sleeves back into the mix, and continue knitting a (ginormous) sweater… the colorwork is definitely going to be fun, that’s for sure!

Until next time, Em 🙂

ermahgerd what have I done

We interrupt our regular scheduled broadcasting for a BREAKING NEWS UPDATE.

Holy mustaches. I am such a fail at life. Why. Why. Why. Why.

You know what not to do if you want to live a semi-normal life? DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT ASK A CUTE GUY WHAT HIS SNAPCHAT IS. What have I done. I should have ignored that status… whyyyyy.

It was just so tempting though. He has no Snapchat friends, and apparently he is trying to find Snapchat friends because he is talking about his non-existant Snapchat friends on Facebook and ermahgerd what have I done?!

Learn from my stupidity, internet.

Also, don’t make a super ridiculous Snapchat name. Because people will want to add you. And how are you supposed to explain your ridiculous name without them laughing? You can’t. Blargh.

Until next time, Em 🙂


Okay, so there’s this book that I love love love with a passion that can’t be contained. Wow, that sounds wrong. Anywaysss….. I stumbled upon this book in the library a few years ago and fell in love with it. I don’t know what it is, but I just love those lines around the edges on the cover… we recently got a piece of mail like that and I want to hang it up in my room. No creepy at all.

13 Little Blue Envelopes

13 Little Blue Envelopes, the best book ever (okay, maybe not the best. One of the best)

Anyways, I’ve been waiting for a sequel to come out for about… 4 or 5 years. NBD. I thought there would never be a sequel and I wanted to go over to the author’s house and make her write a sequel (I’ll spare y’all the gory details)

AND NOW THERE IS A SEQUEL HOLYMUSTACHES!!! I’ve been waiting for… oh 3 weeks for it to be available on my library account. AND I JUST FOUND OUT I CAN NOW READ IT AND MY LIFE IS OFFICIALLY COMPLETE!!! (I said that when I got the Diving 2012 Olympics Coke can but I guess now it’s even more true)

The most wonderful thing ever. Excuse me while I go watch the Olympic Trials again just to see David Boudia‘s face… yes I have it taped don’t judge

Excuse me while I fangirl while listening to this song and jumping around my room screaming.

Until next time, Em 🙂



Not even kidding you right now…. my life has just been made. Check it out.


Or if you’re lazy, I copied it and put it right down there.

Q. I like this guy, my friend’s neighbor, how do I get to know him? I’ve played tennis with him before but just once before.

A. First things first, ask yourself why you like this guy that you’ve only really talked to once. I’m guessing the answer to that is because he looks smokin’ hot in a tennis outfit. Now I’m not saying that’s a bad reason to like a guy. (Personally I’m a huge fan of smokin’ hot guys.) Just make sure you have something in common beyond that. If you really want to get to know him, you have to start in groups—maybe your friend can invite him and another guy to play doubles tennis with the two of you. If you’re not that into tennis, now might be a good time to get into tennis. Afterward, the group of you could all grab pizza and you can get to know tennis cutie. Good luck!


Until next time, Em 🙂
