Ya know how every now and then I will do a random post that is about a whole lot of nothing?? Well this is about to be one of those. I just watched "High Crime" and now I can't sleep. I hear a creak in my house and it gives me the heebie jeebies. So this is whats on my mind...

I signed up for a knitting class today at Dear Lizzie. I don't know what I am more excited about.. knitting or eating cupcakes WHILE knitting?? both.

I read the cutest little story about old folks love today.. it almost made me tear up. I do agree.. we all need a little more old folks love. :) Read it HERE.

I went camping this past weekend. Had a blast. Well, almost a blast. Emery and Anisten both have colds which SUCKED. Anisten was an angel.. but Emery made up for the both of them. Can you believe this was the ONLY picture that I took the whole weekend? Lame Tara Lame. Oh can you also believe I forgot mine and the girls coats? It was in the low 30's.. again Tara.. Lame.

I took this picture to show you all what I wore into a grocery store. Eeew. I looked horrible.

So I have a folder on my de
sktop titled "Things I want to Make" whenever I find something online that looks like my style, I cut and copy and throw it in that folder. I wish I knew where I got these next 2 pictures from. I have questions for her. But anyway... Isn't that blanket ADORABLE???! I love the hand quilting.

I went to Hobby Lobby today.. oh and Costco too. BOTH of them already had Christmas decorations up! Crazy...

Have all of you tried the Pumpkin Strudel muffins from Costco? Make a special trip just to get them. You will thank me.. I promise.

Does it bug anyone else when people nowadays do giveaways on their blog and say.. well if you follow me here, here and here.. enter 4 times and then repost on your own blog and comment here and that will give you 10 more entries, blah blah blah.... eeek! Whenever I see that.. I get so annoyed. It's like they think I have all day long to enter their dang giveaway? Sheesh! Sorry if any of you have done this.. I am sure some people like it.. Maybe that is just me being dumb. I dunno.

Oh isn't she adorable. No, that isn't my stroller. Yes, I do want it though.

I got Anisten dressed today and pulled out a 0-3 month onesie. I thought to myself.. I wonder if this would still fit her?? (She is 9 months) I tried it on and sure enough.. it fits her with room to spare! I am starting to wonder if I birthed a dwarf??

I haven't checked anyones blogs in weeks. I actually have over +1000 unread blogs on my Google Reader. I need to get that under control soon! I miss reading all of your blogs! If you haven't been able to tell though.. I haven't been by the computer much. It's actually felt nice. :) I am still always on Facebook though. Dang iPhone makes it so easy! That has really replaced blogging lately. Again.. my apologies.

Confessions of a SAHD.. seriously.. you GOTTA read this post. You will die laughing!

Last Sunday our dear friends the Simmons blessed their baby girl... I stole some of their pictures off their blog..

Oh sheesh.. this random blog post must come to an end. My little Emery just came into my room half asleep and its 1AM. She sure is struggling with sleeping lately. Well, sorry if this post is weird. I just have so many posts backed up I don't know where to start!
