A New Hobby

OK I have to tell you guys this. I have a new hobby......knitting!!!! LOL I'm getting teased something terrible right now about it too. I have to tell you how this started.

I was surfing the web one day & ran across this website http://bohemiansoul.com/ & fell in love with her work. She crochets all types of cute things you have to check her out. Sooooo because some of her things were a little expensive, & now I understand why, I decided hey why not learn how to do this myself. Well I ended up learning to knit instead of crochet. I do plan on learning how to crochet a bit later though after I get this knitting thing mastered. I also should add that yes I have purchased several things from her & I love them all, I just figured hey I could learn a craft.
I am hooked you guys, I'm always online looking for easy patterns & there are so many out there that are free too! I've finished my first project a neck warmer, I'll post the pics of that. Well for some reason I can't post the pics of the neck warmer. I'm currently working on a baby sweater for my four month old little cousin. I'm making a size 18mo because I didn't know how long it would take me to make it but it's coming along pretty quickly. I'll post pics of my progress of that as well. Heck I just may start a knitting blog!!! The last side of the front of the sweater is what's on the needle now. I started knitting this sweater on Mother's Day. So I'm almost two weeks in & I thought it would take me a lot longer to get this done. If I would have known I would have made it a size smaller & he would be able to wear it sooner. But I guess if he keeps growing at the rate he's going he'll be in it soon enough.
Stay tuned for more knitting projects I love this stuff. I can't wait to get more experienced where I can make things with more detail.

It's Been A While

Hey Blog Fam!!
I've been away for awhile, just busy, busy, busy!!!! I'm officially what I call a ZumbaHead(lol)! If you're not familiar with Zumba check it out here. I'm so hooked that I am going for my certification this saturday in Chicago. I have my own class lined up on Tues & Thurs & I also attend my best friends classes, she's also an instructor. I attend her classes two to three times a week depending on my work schedule along with also attending bootcamp/kickboxing classes twice a week. So sometimes I'm working out two hours a day & I love it! I'm also participating in a biggest loser challenge in the workplace which has been interesting. I go up & down on the scale from week to week, which I don't understand because I'm working out so much.

I went to DisneyWorld two weeks ago for a week. Who would have thought going to DisneyWorld without children could be so much fun? I took tons of pics, we went to SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and Universal Studios.
A quick hair update. I LOVE MY LOC'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! My hair is fully loc'd now front to back, no more curly q's. I miss my curly q's though. I love how my hair blows in the wind. I love my length, it's almost shoulder length now I find myself pulling my hair out of my collar now. I'm not sure how long I really want it to get though before I cut it. Here's a few pics from my trip
