March Madness

Here is a whole bunch of madness, exciting, out-of-the-ordinary stuff that happened in my month of March, that has absolutely nothing to do with an orange ball dressed in black stripes….I apologize for disappointing you basketball fans.

  • I got a whole bunch of new knitting magazines for under $20(it gets more interesting, I promise)
  • The girls in my family(and little brother, because he couldn’t stand to be left behind) all went to go see “Cinderella”  I liked it quite a bit!
  • My dad got a new job!  This is good because he was not happy at his last job, and needed a greater sense of accomplishment.  So yay for him. 🙂
  • My brother got a new job! Yippity-doo-da for him as well. It’s nice to have happily employed relatives. 😉
  • My sister has a new job- dressing up as a princess for birthday parties.  Totally not a job I ever saw her being excited about, but maybe I misjudged!  And there is more to it than that- she’s an intern for event-coordinating, just what she wanted!
  • I stayed at my job, it makes me happy and is a good place to work…..I just thought you’d like to know that I did not get a new job
  • I met a famous guy who came into the place where I work, although I’m not disclosing who it was because he’s already famous enough, so he doesn’t need anymore advertisement here
  • My family is enjoying the presence of little ones in our home again- we have two little girls staying with us for a couple weeks and are learning just how out of shape our little-kid-chasing muscles are
  • There was a high-speed chase on a highway my dad and I were traveling on, and we nearly got involved in it(thanks very much to the young man who nearly hit us while he was playing tag with the cops), AND we got to see the aftermath when we caught up to the party while moving with traffic.  Mr. Naughtiness was being led away by the cops.  I’m glad we got to see the results. 🙂  I’m also quite ecstatic that we didn’t die.  You can check out the whole thing here. And if you watch the video, my dad and I were passing the scene right about 02:10, but you can’t see us…. Oh well.
  • We got chicks!
  • I got my first two Liebster awards
  • My cousin released his new album- Heroes in the Making Check it out!
  • The color green made an appearance in our yard(and other places too…) again- it’s kind of the opener for spring- the main attraction 🙂 I’m pretty hyped about it
  • One of my sisters made it to 14 years old, and did it with flare
  • I went bowling, and thoroughly embarrassed myself.  But it was with friends, so I enjoyed it anyway!
  • There were several people in jail who I talked to on the phone(it comes with my job), and one was trying to give me advice on said bowling, and the other wanted me to take him partying when he comes to visit!  Haha, no.  Both of them freaked me out by calling me by name- someone in my workplace was nice enough to share that information with them, without informing me….
  • My family and I watched “Big Hero 6”  *fist bump* Fa la la la….. I apologize if you don’t get that reference, it’s from the movie, which I can recommend fairly highly!
  • I talked with a Ms. Smith on the phone(at work again), who seemed to think that someone should recognize her by her last name. Sorry to disappoint, but um….  And no, her name isn’t changed for her protection.  That is her name, and you still have no idea who she is….That makes two of us!
  • I finally made it to 100 followers….plus a little. Thanks a million!!! Well, really just a hundred, plus a few more. 😉
  • Our garden was planted…..on our dining room table.  Before you raise an eyebrow, we put them in seed-starter thingys which have a much tidier appearance then a pile of earth plopped on the table.  They (supposedly) transfer to real dirt easily.

Next week’s post should probably have something to do with knitting in it….I haven’t shared anything about that in a while now, and just realized it. *sigh* Oops.  Well, I’ll leave you in suspense about what exactly the subject shall be, but it will mostly involve needles and yarn of some sort. 🙂  I hope you had a great March, and are springing into April happily!  Until next week, TTFN- Ta ta for now!  Let me know what you did in March, I’d love to hear about it. 🙂

The Liebster Strikes Again!

If you normally read this blog, you may have noticed that I normally only post on Thursdays….or maybe you haven’t, no problem, I just thought maybe….  Anyway, something happened- I was liebstered twice in one week!  So in order to keep up here and not have two Liebster posts two weeks in a row– I’ll just do two in one week!  Isn’t that considerate of me?  I’m only thinking of my marvelous readers. 🙂

Summary of the ramble above: there will be an extra post this week. So here we go…

I would like to thank Renee, from One Sip at a Time for nominating me for my second Liebster.  I greatly, super-really, hugely appreciate it.  It would be extremely nice of you all to check out her blog(hint, hint….)  Thanks again Renee! 🙂

The rules are:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you

2. Answer the 11 questions that they set

3. Nominate others with less than 200 followers

4. Let them know about the nomination and the questions

Here are Renee’s questions for me:

1. Favorite color?

Blue, but I also really like pink.

2. Favorite season?

Spring!

3. Do you have a hidden talent?

If I do, it’s still hidden. 😉

4. Chocolate or vanilla?

Chocolate all the way!

5. Do you have any pets? If so, what are their names?

My family has two dogs, 2 pigs(for now), lots of chickens and we just got more chicks this morning!  Our dogs are Buttercup(an English Mastiff), and Thea(a dark chocolate Lab).  The chickens don’t have names for the most part, and the pigs are still pretty young- they don’t have official names yet. 🙂

6. Do you collect anything? If so, what?

Skeins of yarn….Memories….Chocolate….(but that doesn’t hang around for long!)

7. What inspired you to blog/create your blog?

I started blogging as a way to promote my Etsy shop-  To Knit or Knot?

8. What is one thing that’s on your bucket list that you absolutely want to do in your life?

I’m not sure if there is one thing that I absolutely want to do.  Although a goal in my life(or maybe better put- the goal of my life) is to glorify God. That is the absolute goal.

9. Favorite TV/Netflix series/why?

Mork and Mindy- it’s old-ish, but worth looking up. 🙂

10. If you could travel to any place in the world, where would you go and why?

I would love to go to Scotland because of it’s scenery and history.  Other than that, my second choice would probably be Hawaii or the UK in general. 🙂  Anywhere with beautiful scenery makes me happy though.

11. Favorite pastime?

Knitting for sure!

I nominate these blogs:

A Taiwanese Girl

Semper Fidelis

Conquering My Own Castle

Dainty Little Secrets

And here are my questions for you lovely bloggers!

1.Do you have a favorite day of the week?

2. What is your favorite food?

3. Are you an early bird or a night owl?

4. How did you decide on the name of your blog?

5. What is your favorite memory?

6.Would you rather listen to a song that you intensely loathe 10 times, or a song that you love all day?

7. Who is your best friend?
