VogueKnitLiveย 

Wow, a lot of time has passed since my last post! Things have been very busy at work, but my newfound love for knitting has been keeping me sane and so happy. Here’s a picture of my (new) hubby and the scarf I knitted up for him! ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus his new shoes for Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜  
    
Today Ray took me to the NYC VogueKnitLive which is a yarn/knitter’s idea of heaven. Vendors from all over the world gather for this convention and it is a sweet sweet place! My husband made sure to bring his headphones and extra phone batteries. ๐Ÿ‘   

  
So many beautiful soft yarn to choose from!!!! I held on to my husband’s creditcard and did my damage!!!!  
    
    
    
    
 I always wanted to try giant needle knitting! My wish came true!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 
My beautiful new collection of yarn plus big needles. I also won a free Lee Child audiobook ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. Some of the yarn were $36 per skein ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ญ but how could I say no?!?! I discovered many new favorite yarn companies today, and it was such an exciting day for me!!! I’m also excited about using my little yarnbowl! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’• 

I need to thank my wonderful husband for not complaining once and following me everywhere and holding all my bags. Plus thank you for not freaking out over the cost of yarn and being so understanding about my passion. I’m not sure I can be as nice as him when it comes to his hobbies….which is Crossfit and working out hahaa ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

I missed the blogging world! โ›„๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Apple Picking Day!

   
Apple picking day at Barton. We went with R’s family and it was a nice place but let me warn you about the traffic and the lines…kind of ridiculous!!!!!! On a positive note, hayrides and lot’s of apple tastings! I brought my own knife to slice away~

 My outfit is quite colorful today haha! Posing with the mini apple I picked!!! So tiny and cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

  Attempting to pick this pumpkin up…  

Yummy cinnamon doughnut!!! Went back for more but the line was way too long..boooo! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Sprinkly Dinkly Cupcakes

   
 
Howdy do! Somebody made some yummy cupcakes tonight!!! (Not from scratch though…I used to only bake from scratch but it takes so much time!!!) I was pretty exhausted from my city outing, but I did it!!! I’m sad because two of my students will be moving to an ESL class ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I know it’s only October but my kids this year are awesome! They already feel like my kids and I realized I really missed teaching a 12:1:1 class. I promised  the kids I would bake cupcakes (no oven in school boooo) and we would decorate it together. It will be a small goodbye party and it makes me so sad! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

   
 

Crafty Hands

Taking the 6:25am train to the city today for professional development. So weird not to be going to work and I miss my kids already! Also, I’m scared how crazy my room will look tomorrow haha ๐Ÿ™‚   

Last night I had to make some jewelry orders so I got some of my tools out and went to work! ๐Ÿ™‚

   
    

   
I used gold-filled materials most of the time which is great for people with allergies and Swarovski materials which means $$$$$$ hahaa sometimes I wish I could open up a little jewelry/craft store!

  
Now I’m on the train typing up this mini-post and knitting away!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers to a terrific Thursday!!! Today is supposed to be sunny and warm in NYC so I’m looking forward to the nice weather!

Target Tuesdays!

IMG_0629

Tonight was Target night! R had to go, because he has a big presentation tomorrow and needed last minute supplies. We had some pak-bing-soo (Korean shaved ice dessert) before going, and it was fantastical!! While R looked around for his supplies, I picked up a bunch of Halloween items for my class! The prices were so awesome $1-$3 for everything (except for the jack-o-lantern shirt that you see…) The shirt was $12.99, and I know my students would love seeing me wear it so I had to get it! Hahaa Halloween is more than a month away, but this group is already so excited for it and can’t stop talking about it! I got 18 treat bags for $1! Better than the Michaels deal! Lot’s of cute things and some window clingys – still need to go to Michaels and a couple of other stores to finish my treat bags but it’s a great start! โค
