Top 10 Things from Vegas Trip

I spent the past week in Las Vegas working at the 2010 ERA D2C Convention. I worked 12-14 hour days and at the end of them all my feet were KILLING me. BUT, there were some good things about being there.
  1. The Wynn - OMG was this hotel FABULOUS!
  2. My bed - SERIOUSLY wanted to take it home with me!
  3. Criss Angel - this guy was amazing - still don't know how he does it!
  4. Our members - lots of really fun and kind people
  5. Food - I only ate at places at The Wynn, but it was really good eats!
  6. My bed - REALLY never wanted to leave it!
  7. My co-workers - we make such a good team!
  8. The cha-cha slide - thanks for reminding me of it guys!
  9. My bed - so good I have to mention it three times
  10. Coming home - ALWAYS the best part!

Getting to Know... Many

I love HSKS. I love getting to know so many new people and getting to know friends even better. This round, I've seen beautiful knitted projects by those who've only just started knitting. Found MANY more mmmalabrigo lovers, those with a fan for the blues and greens as well as other December babies. Everyone in this swap is great source of inspiration and I'm so excited to be a part of this group again!

New Leaf

I'm turning over a new leaf - kind of like the design/layout of blog. Get it? It's fall... new leaf... yeah, it's a reach, but I had to stretch just a bit!

But seriously things are feeling much better! I'm not going to lie, I've been in a bit of funk all summer and now that fall is coming I'm starting to perk way up. The temps are going down, the foliage is going all red, gold and orange and I soon will be able to pull out my fave blue sweater! Pumpkins and Halloween will soon be here (and Leigh Anne's wedding is only two weeks away!), my baby sister's baby will be here before I know it (which reminds me, MUST get that blanket done!) AND I'm back in the HSKS fold. So many things to be happy about.

And, with the return of HSKS, is the return of the "getting to know you" list. See below for what I've learned of my new family members.
  1. Someone with the same craft as you (either those listed above or another one). Clara Clovenhoof - knitter
  2. Someone who was born in the same month as you. Perenelle Tejedora - December
  3. Someone from a different country. Emma Wigworthy - England
  4. A new HSKS Family member. Schmutzerella Oglethorpe
  5. Someone who has been in 3 or more HSKS swaps. Fleur Sweeting
  6. Someone who has a bigger stash than you! Bella Shacklebolt - 110 to my 55
  7. Someone who both knits and crochets. Hermione Bagnold
  8. Someone who has the same favorite color as you. Vevina McFey - Blues
  9. Someone who has the same favorite season/holiday as you. Lexi Lovegood - Christmas
  10. Someone who has the same favorite fiber as you. Delantrophy Grey - wool - even better is our shared love for Mmmmalabrigo! :)
P.S. A few more great things going on - made my last payment to my former land lady, have a GREAT coffee table (which I look forward to carving my pumpkin and then putting my little Christmas tree on), have a good line on a GREAT loveseat! Oh and of course, the first part of the last HP movie comes out in exactly two months!
