Excited!

This week has been really good. On Saturday I was able to go to Salt Lake and take a beginers knitting class. It was just what I needed. I have knit things in the past, but I taught myself from a book, and sometimes I felt like it was harder than it should be. I was right! I was casting on so very wrong it's no wonder I was having a hard time with it. Also it turns out I was purling wrong as well. Well, I've got that all straightened out and I have already spent a considerable amount of money on yarn that I love but could not seem to justify when I was just crocheting it.

As far as I know none of my family including my mom, ever visit's my blog so, I will post my current knitting project which is a Christmas gift for one of my auntie's. I know it's only the first week of May, but since I am planning on giving everybody something that I knit myself it's best to start now. This is a scarf the picture is from Tuesday night, now however it is a few inches short of 5 feet and 7 1/2 inches wide. The pattern stiches I am using is called seed stitch. I plan to finish the second skein of yarn, or stop when it's excessively long which ever happens first.

My birthday was this week (Wednesday) and my husband and momma spoiled me very nicely. Zorro gave me a good amount of money, and then took me to Salt Lake and Ogden to spend it. Two new shirts, a skirt, a couple of bras and some pretty panties, iTunes gift card, and a dock for my iPod. He even braved a yarn store with me! He stayed in the car for the second one. My momma got me a beautiful bag from Barnes and Noble, (even though we both know that I don't NEED another bag) a gift card to B&N and a gift card to iTunes. Even Andrew remembered my birthday and sent me birthday wishes via text. My aunties (even my brand new one) all sent my e-cards.

One of the really cool things that happened this week is that I became a supervisor with Close to My Heart. I have been with CTMH for 2 1/2 years and on my birthday Ro signed up under me. I am very excited to welcome her to CTMH and my team. I love my supervisor, she is wonderful and I hope to have that kind of relationship with my downline.

Have you read any of the Stephanie Plum books? Oh my goodness they are just to stinking funny. It's amazing the things that happen to her and the situations she finds herself in. I have to say that, that is a another series to add to my absolute favorites! They are by Janet Evanovich, I have read(listened to them from iTunes) books 8-14. I just bought book 7 tonight. My favorites right now are books, 8, 10, and 13. But that is subject to change as I finish them all. Book number 15 titled "Finger Linkin' Fifteen" is due out June 23, and honestly my mom and I are just as excited about that release as we were about the Harry Potter books. My mom and I have gone to the colonge counters to sniff the Bulgari Green that Ranger wears, talk about mmmmmmmmm. I might just have to get some for my hubby for his birthday. To bad that I really doubt that he would actually wear it. It's probably a prefect sent. Not to strong (you all know what I am talking about!) and not the least bit wimpy or sweet smelling.

Well this post is getting really long. I will stop now before I bore everyone to sleep.

Congrats on becoming a supervisor! I'm going to take objection to the "just crochet" comment; I think my yarn addiction is thoroughly satisfied by my crocheting ability. LOL. But you've totally redeemed yourself with all the Evanovich love. I got the first four because the titles were so fun, and I was hooked from page one. Stephanie Plum is the most fun you can have between the pages of a book.
Good luck!
