March Madness in my house equals my husband standing 2 feet from the tv yelling very creative combinations of expletives for the entirety of the tournament. He gets so involved in games that showcase schools he’s never even heard of. I don’t understand it. How can you get so mad at people you’ll never meet? And the yelling. Oh, the yelling. It’s like the dad from A Christmas Story moves into my house for a month. Pray for me.
I was cooking dinner the other night while CSP was surfing the web. All the sudden he says to me ” Do you have any dwarfism in your family?”
“Well, it would explain so much. Like your short little legs and arms.”
I told my mom about it the next day and as soon as I said “he asked if there was any dwarfism in our family” she said “Because of your legs!”
I’m 5’7″ by the way!
I recently had a Pampered Chef party. My consultant, Leslie, was wearing a gorgeous twirly scarf. I asked her about it and she said she knitted it! She showed me how she knit it up and I knew I wanted to make some for gifts. I found the yarn at AC Moore and knit myself a practice scarf to be sure I could do it. I’m hooked! Here’s what the yarn looks like when you buy it: That’s Paton’s Pirouette. There are other brands that make similar yarns with similar results. One skein makes one scarf. Here’s what it looks like when you’re knitting it: And here’s my first scarf- the finished product. They are really bouncy and lightweight. Perfect for chilly Spring/Fall evenings. When I get really good at making them I may even sell some!
I am a HUGE fan of the Hunger Games books and I am SO excited about the movie! Usually I don’t get too excited about promotional tie ins but I saw the Hunger Games nail polishes by China Glaze and fell in love! They have a ton of gorgeous colors. I controlled myself though and chose 2. I chose Riveting and Luxe and Lush. LOVE them! I also really like Fast Track, Stone Cold, Hook and Line, and Smoke and Ashes but a girl’s on a budget. Electrify was pretty amazing looking too. Luxe and Lush goes on clear with big chunks of pearlized glitter. I like it over Riveting for my fingers and Riveting alone on my toes. I’ll be all decked out for the premiere! By the way, another reason I can’t wait to see the movie is that it was filmed right here in NC! They filmed in Charlotte, Concord (just North of CLT), and outside of Asheville. Funny, I don’t remember Lenny Kravitz asking me to hobknob with him!
