Date Night: A Review

Last week, I got asked out on a date. By my husband. It was pretty cute. He even told me I should dress up. I lurve him.

He took me to Bazins on Church. They had a tasting menu so we decided to do that- all three courses. I think I'm still full. We drank wine and ate our food. We talked about what was going on at work. J is job interviewing (he's always interviewing) and had been to two separate ones yesterday. We talked about his career goals. We talked about long term goals. We talked about how we want to plan for the future.

What we didn't talk about: Babies, IVF, Sperm, Cancer. It was GLORIOUS. I would be lying if I said that I'm not enjoying this break. I'm enjoying being a non-TTC married girl. I'm sure as I get closer to treatment, that will change. But for now, I'm basking in the status quo.

Um, WTF?!? So this afternoon there was an earthquake. Like a for real earthquake. 5.9 earthquake to be exact. I can't lie- living and working close to the Nations Capitol- the first thing I thought of was Terrorist Attack. I mean I've lived her for-ev-er and never experienced an earthquake. It was pretty scary. The best part of an afternoon earthquake is getting to leave work early.

Crafting Update!

I made coasters!! Pretty exciting, huh? Pinterest has inspired me to be crafty. I have to admit- I am NOT crafty. So all this crafting, knitting business is pretty strange territory for me. Coasters was a good start. I've developed a deep love of Modge Podge and can't wait to see what else I can do with it. Here is how they turned out.

Step 1: Procure scrapbook paper, measure and cut into 4x4 squares
Step 2: Modge Podge squares to 4x4 tiles
Step 3: After drying overnight- spray with clear acrylic
Step 4: Line back with felt

And VOILA! Coasters. And all the while I'm singing The Beastie Boys song "She's Crafy" in my head.

Blogger Woes

I am a blog whore. I read about a billion blogs. Ok- probably not a billion, but quite a few. And lately- Blogger has been not letting me comment on my favorite blogs.

So I just wanted to give a shout out to one of my favorite bloggers- Kelly- I'm sending you eleventy billion ehugs. I hope you are well and I think of you often- even when I can't comment. xoxo
