acid tongue

listening to jenny lewis.
especially "godspeed"
I adore that song.

okay so,
want to see what I've been knitting up? well, if you've been reading this blog for more than a year, you know that I started the lush hoodie in "greetings from the knit cafe" a long time ago. I neglected it for more than a year and now it's almost finished! so happy with it! I have the whole back finished. I need to finish the right front, another sleeve, and pick up stitches for the hood. problem is, I bought not enough yarn from knitpicks for this thing. exactly one ball too short :/ hopefully by some miracle they still sell it. I need to get on that... haha

anyway, it has been FREEZING here and I'm still in soup mode. I made some easy peasy chicken soup. man, it was good. it was even better leftover too! I'm making myself hungry :)

I have been craving bread (gluten-free of course!) and carbs so crazy. I have to make this foccacia from "allergen-free cookbook." this will be the next thing I bake. I'm going to make some glorious looking green pesto too. you better believe it :)

while you were sleeping

if you haven't noticed, I've been messing around with the layout of this blog for a while. I thought about it for a long time (well, not too long) and I came up with this new layout. I hope you like it. I is staying like this for quite a while.

anyway, second blog of the day.

I'm sitting here listening to while you were sleeping for the second time in a row.

it's very rainy today so the gizmo and I have been snuggling and being lazy.

I made some split pea with bacon soup and I had the leftovers. it was so delicious. it was the perfect thing for a day like today. I love soup on rainy days.

I'm so glad it's finally fall! I love sweaters and crunchy leaves and hot chocolate!!

I went to the dekalb library for the first time! it was so nice! doug and I decided that we are going to go once a week. it's fantastic! they had a huge section of gluten-free books too! squeee!!

I really love the illustration on the front of "City of Theives." I am liking this book a lot.

I really can't make it to the chicagoland craft collective tonight. I feel sad about missing it. it's just so far and I really don't feel that great. oh well...there's next month. so, I'm going to get together with doug and laura tonight for the project runway FINALE! woot! I'm so excited! I have my fingers crossed for leanne! she was my favorite since the very first episode this season. much like christian was last season. anyway, I found this very cool. I'll be looking for our local girl tonight on the show :)

bye for now

ps: oh! I almost forgot to mention that doug and laura got a kitty! she's adorable! I just love her! I will take a picture soon when she is more social. she is still not used to the idea of the new living arrangments. her name is luna and she is 3 years old. they adopted her from tails. you will get to meet her soon. I promise!


two posts today! I haven't had much time to post lately, I had 2 papers and 2 exams last week (shew) so, here I am, giving you a post of things that I have acquired lately.
doug bought me the most adorable! shirt! ever! I have been been pining for it for a while and one day he just surprised me! what a sweet! it reminds me of nan, my friend from the chicagoland craft collective.

oh, and by the way, tilly and wall are awesome. if you don't know them, get thee to the music store. PLUS they tapdance! how could you not love them!?

I bought this amazing little feather headband. isn't it so kenley from project runway? (who I do not like for your information, TEAM LEANNE! since day one. just sayin!)
but it is cute nonetheless

I decided that I have too many plain clothes. so I bought this!

and I love it...♥

I went thrifting for the first time in a long long time! I go straight to the children's books and vintage patterns everytime. but I found this goofy learn french tape :)
this is from the book, "miffy rides a bike"
I was definitely inspried by the lovely veronica who always has great success thrifting! she makes me want to go hunt for vintage treasures.

off to make another post! ♥ a
