It's been a while

Wow, I can't believe it has been over a month since I last posted. A lot has happened in that time and it has been quite busy around here. The main reason for my absence is that my lovely husband gave my laptop to one of his clients and the one I was using in the meantime didn't have a SD reader. But now I am equipped with a brand new Compaq that I am loving, it has a huge 17" screen and is ginormous.
So here is what has been going on this past month. My baby started first grade last week. It has been awfully quiet at home during the day, I am not sure what to do with all that free time, but I am sure that I will figure something out.
My birthday was Aug. 5th and we celebrated the following weekend. I don't know why this picture is sideways, maybe one of bloggers weird quirks. Anyway, Anthony threw me a fabulous party. We started at the house with cocktails and some Thai food I prepared and played some Wii bowling. Anthony had the guests write a poem and bring something pink, prizes were awarded for the best poem and item. It was quite entertaining.

Then we loaded in the big Hummer limo and headed downtown to Tryst and Sutra. And yes I wore this tiara the entire time...after a few vanilla Stolis and diet cokes I kinda forgot about it. Sutra was a blast, we had a VIP booth and bottle service and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. We headed home and played drunk Rock Band on Xbox. I did a horrible Bon Jovi impression which shortly there after everyone called it a night and crashed at our house. I think they were tired of my singing!

This past month I also participated in the HHHH swap. Lainevierge was my partner and she sent me this gorgeous Merino/Tussah blend from Pigeonroof to spin up.
She also spun this gorgeous merino from All Spun Up for me. I love the colors and think it will make a great hat for the coming winter.

This is the roving I picked for my giftee, Lizard Smells, it is a Colonial/Merino blend from Copperpot and it is called Leaping Lizards, which I thought was fitting.
I was pretty happy with how the yarn turned out, although I had a hard time getting the photos to do it justice.
And this is my favorite purchase of the month. I bought these awesome clear Converse sneakers with the birthday money my MIL gave me.
They are just the perfect shoes for showing off hand knit socks, I adore them.
Well it's good to be back. I have much more to catch up on, so I should be back to my regular posting in the coming days. Missed you all!

OMG - those are the COOLEST sneakers EVER! Where did you get them? I haven't seen them in Atlanta - or I just haven't been looking in the right places. :)
