I am a believer.

I have to say that most infomercials come on and I usually just pass them by, but this time I watched, and looked and thought...hmmmm this could actually work.

The Product, The Perfect Brownie

I really didn't think it would work or even come out just as they promised, but guess what....IT DID!!!

One small issue is it took a little longer to bake, but not really a big deal in the whole scheme of things, I just kept checking with a toothpick and the final time was about 50 minutes. The box and Perfect Brownie directions said about 25-30 minutes, but I think my oven is a little off.

All in all, I do have to say I would recommend this, I love it and can't wait to try all the recipes that came with the kit. And yes, they do taste as good as they look.

Ruffle Insanity

I started this shawl 10 days ago, the shawl itself only took me about 3 days to knit and it's close to 5 feet long by 3 feet wide, so it's quite large.

Unfortunately the ruffle around the outside wasn't as easy. Considering it took me almost 6 hours just to bind off all the stitches. I love the way it came out and I hope my Mom loves it I made it for her for Christmas.

731 days later.

What started out with a "wink" on 731 days ago has become the best 2 years of my life.

I know it's been full of a lot of ups and downs but it's been a wonderful 2 years. I'm so grateful to have him in my life.

I love looking, it's not like it's been so long that we've changed, we pretty much look the same. Just my hairsytle changes...but that happens pretty much monthly not matter what.

Here's a little picture history of us. I just wanted to share. Really so many years from now I know I can always look back and say way back when.....

Slippers are better than socks.

I found these and this is just so much better than socks.

Felted wool slippers. They look so cozy, I must must must knit them. And if they come out good, I smell christmas presents.
