230: Finished Project (and the End of the World)

I made a cupcake cowl!

The pictures aren't amazing because I took them on my iPhone and uploaded them through Quickpic and Ravelry.

The reason I had to upload them from my phone is because my world just ended. My MacBook Pro decided not to wake up yesterday morning. It was a sad day. I tried turning it on but it would just turn back off. I could tell it was trying really hard to start up, but its screen stayed black, and then it just gave up. I tried taking the battery out like customer service (really nice, btw) had suggested and it still didn't work. So I'm waiting for Apple to send me a coffin FedEx box to send my baby in to them to repair. Hopefully they can bring it back to life. And maybe throw in Snow Leopard.

222: !!!

Remember the post about hippos? I just discovered this hippo kit while reading a blog that belongs to a fellow Home Ec student.


Update: They only deliver to the UK...*sigh*

219: I Got Yarn!

I got something in the mail today.

There were little flowery birds like this all over the paper my package was wrapped in.

I ordered some yarn from Yarns on Etsy and look at how gorgeous this is...

It's called cupcake, and as soon as I saw it, I had to have it. You know, since I like to bake and stuff...

It also reminds me of cotton candy, like, if I were to eat it, that's what it would taste like...And tutti frutti jelly beans, it looks like those too.

There were all these little stamped labels and such that just added to the adorableness of it all.

And with the package came a little surprise...

Stitch markers! Now I have legitimate stitch markers, not some flimsy plastic ones. They're so cute!

218: I Just Discovered Amazingness

Right now I am devouring what can only be called heaven. It's very difficult to type with one hand so I'm going to finish my piece of heaven first then get back to you.

Hi. Mmm nom nom nom. That was good. Let me start by saying I love ice cream. This is no secret. I also like yogurt (can you see where I'm going with this?). When I was younger my mom came up with the genius idea of freezing Gogurt, before Gogurt did. Now at the time I thought this was amazing. I mean it's still pretty cool but I think I found something more mature, and quite possibly better than frozen Gogurt.

It's a yogurt popsicle - a yogurtsicle....yosicle? It's the amazingness of frozen yogurt combined with the convenience of a stick that's as nommy as ice cream and yogurt and...yeah...It's good, trust me. My mom had stashed some in the freezer and she's like, "I have yogurt popsicles if you want some." At first I thought she made them by just sticking yogurt in the freezer but they were actual popsicles. And so good! Okay, I think that's enough about frozen yogurt bars.

So did you see where that link went to? Amazon Fresh. There's an Amazon Fresh? That's kind of cool. I don't know how I would feel about food being delivered to me...

On another note, I'm going to see Mae in November! I'm excited. I'm really in love with their new song right now, Sleep Well, which you can hear on their website. Yay for concerts!
