Scarlet and grey

Just a little sneak preview of a verrrry awesome OSU themed monster set I'm working on. Never fear, still a U of M girl hardcore..I'm just no dummy when it comes to doing a show in the middle of Columbus, you know??

I should really do a post about all the absolutely ridiculous brain melting TV we watch. Lets just say this-Toddlers and Tiaras. Probably 8 episodes in the last three days. Little Miss, Tiny Miss, Glitzy Tiny Miss. Can't get enough.

I haven't been totally sucking the last few days. I did pull out the more Halloween-y theme toys out of the glass cabinet and make a cute little vignette on top of the TV!

So cutey. I have so many toys cluttered up in the cabinet I like to be able to get different ones out every now and again to highlight.

Somebodys got a case of the Mondays

Despite feeling like I'm getting the black lung, I'm going to try to have a good day today:

*my ipod is full of all new music!

*I have yumyum leftovers for lunch

*holidays creamers are outttt! We chipped in for a Keurig in my department, this is my saving grace a lot of days.

Why does my car smell like chocolate?

Tids and Bits

Officially accepted to Crafts Gone Wild! Yaaaaay!

Ordered yarn to, going against everything I believe in, knit OSU monsters. Got it today. Much thicker than I expected. BOO. Thumbs down boo. Clearly a sign that OSU monsters are a bad idea, obvs.

The house is freezing. Still not turning on the heat.

As usual, feel behind on knitting for the show.

I made a new blog header! It still looks like I don't know what I'm doing!

We made the most yummy potato pancakes out of all things, instant mashed flakes. They were deeeelish.

Do not buy the Almond Joy creamer that there are a million commercials for that looks amazing. It is expensive and a giant letdown.

Any couponers out there? Ryan and I are so gung ho about this after watching Extreme Couponers on TLC, but he's been looking and all the coupons out there suck!! Obviously its possible if these women are doing it, we even saw a vegan couponer last night...but how are they gettting good stuff and Ryan is finding coupons for a dollar off four tubs of Crisco?!

The ugly truth.

Just in case some poor confused soul out there ever started to think I was cool...I feel the need to disclose...
Here's what Ryan and I did last month.

We went to WWE Smackdown!!!! Third row ringside. It was spectacular and worth every penny.

And yes, we made signs. Oh, did we make signs.

We were on TV like crazy. This sign looks really grainy in the photo, but it's my best friend's baby's name. Thea love!!!

Yep, I'm 34 and went to wrestling. And held out and Stub-Hubbed so we could get killer tickets. No shame!

Missoni love!

So Target can piss off, and take their totally over hyped Missoni collection and shove it. Here's what I've been working on in my non-monster knitting time. Inspired by the Missoni throw pattern on Ravelry, I'm knitting only one repeat of it to make a scarf. We'll see how it turns out. I'm using Caron Simply Soft for the first try....if I love it I'm going to modify the pattern to get a few more zigs and zags, and use a nicer yarn.

The colors: (this took forevvvvvvver to pick since I was trying to match the original pattern as closely as possible)

Here's how far I am. I was really cruising on it, but then I entered a craft show in Columbus, so it's put to the side for the time being!

I love how tidy it is!

So I saw one of those uber-popular pins on Pinterest going around with a dotty manicure and that's all I've been rocking lately. You'll forgive the raggy cuticles, tip wear, and Blackberry pics. The last shot is Tigers away uniform colors in honor of post season. CLEARLY NOT HELPING.

Always a lady
