Wow, y’all. I am terrible at keeping up with this. Ok so.
- Knit from my stash. I bought three skeins of sock yarn while I was in Colorado, and all of them are rainbow-colors. Yessss. rainbow socks.
I got two skeins of Mini Mochi in the creatively named Color 105:
And one skein of Viking of Norway Nordlys in Color 949:
Aaaaand I also got a skein at the local shop. But but but they’re sort of struggling! And I wanted to support their new colors and yarns!
And with that, I’m officially cut off from buying more yarn. Sads.
- Knit a sweater. Noooot gonna happen. But that’s ok!
- Crochet a bedspread. Same here.
- Make 10 projects. Not so much with the follow through. We still stand at one finished project, with 87 projects in progress.
1/10 = 10%
- Sew a quilt. Again, probably not going to happen. But my cousin’s having a baby, apparently, so maybe I’ll make a quilt for that baby!

16/25 = 64%. Progress! But can I finish nine more by the end of the year? Better find some short ones to read. At Home is so, so good: charming and witty and delightfully gossip-y. The Psychopath Test is none of those things, sadly.
- Do one thing each month that will simplify my life. I got cloth napkins, and really like them! They’re super-cute. Chris loooves the pink!
I am totally exercising my Amazon Prime, too. I’m getting Kind bars delivered (they’re like Larabars, but actually tasty.), as well as deodorant, kitty litter and conditioner. I really like not having to remember this stuff or lug kitty litter around.
- List my 3/3/3 daily. Mostly just been listing things I’m thankful for, but there ain’t nothing wrong with expressing gratitude.
- Lose 40 lbs. Yeah, yeah. I’ve had two people ask me this week if I want to be accountabilibuddies for workouts. Seems like a sign? 🙂
- Drink more water. I’ve been having more soda in the last week or so, and I’m not drinking as much water. I lost my Fitbit, and I blame that. Fitbit is awesome and sent me a (free!) replacement, so I expect this (and my steps!) to pick up.
- Stop drinking soda. Mmm soda.
- Connect with people more. I’ve been hanging out with Atlanta Emily and Janelle a good bit, and I have co-workers I actually like. So weird. I’ve also Skyped with Chicago Emily and Jessica (WHO MOVED TO FREAKING CHINA), and that’s nice.
Aaaaand I’ve actually been able to IM with a certain Stephanie more. Hooray! Stars everywhere!
