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˜

Kate Spade Mini Haul

Did I mention that we went to Woodbury Outlets after apple picking yesterday? We had to stay there for a long time due to traffic just to get out of the shopping center, but I did minimal damage in my standards. ๐Ÿ™‚

 My Kate Spade goodies!!

These sunglasses are actually not from the outlet store- I wish!!! I added it to my Kate Spade haul because I purchased it earlier this week! Love it! These are the sunglasses you see me wearing when I went apple picking!

  

  My large wallet! Love the huge flat size of this!!!! It is amazing~ Color is a dark purple. Original price was $195 but everything at the store was 50% off and then an additional 20% off everything in the store. It ended up being $78 before tax, yay!

  Cute makeup bag!! $60 for $24 before tax! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was good for the rest of the shopping trip.

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

 

 

 

  
This is one of my favorite pictures! R’s friends came apple picking with their children. I stole their child and stole a kiss! ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course I had to lure her with Hello Kitty stickers!
  Our apple pole! Roar!!!
Slicing away!  
    
  

I picked it up!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚  
 
I picked mostly Fuji apples! ๐Ÿ™‚

   
Hayride!!! Bouncy bouncy!

 
I love my raw honey~

 
Picked up some fudge: peanut butter, rocky road, and birthday cake!  
    
Hot Dog was a no-no!    
    
 

First time CF’er and Terminator Marathon

Today was bring your friend day at Ray’s Glendale Crossfit gym. He asked me if I wanted to go and I told him SUREEE! I actually did want to try it out, but I am quite out of shape compared to everyone at his gym. Today’s WOD was named “Jennifer” in honor of 26 year old service woman who died while responding to help a person in need. The workout was 26 minutes of 10 pullups, 15 kettlebell swings, and 20 boxjumps for as many rounds as we can. Honestly just the warmups made my legs feel like jello, but I was able to complete 7 rounds + 4 reps (scales of course since I’m a newbie). It would have been great to go home after that but nooooo R had to drag me to our regular gym…!!! 

   
   Not before we each got some smoothies!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ It was so gooood!

   
 Crazy R doing his crazy workout….that’s 70 lbs between his legs jeez!

   
    
   
Afterwards, went to a Korean restaurant BCD and stuffed myself with two bowls of rice and lot’s of food. Happy and smiley I went home to shower and nap for 3 hours hahaa ๐Ÿ™‚

  
I really can’t remember the last time I bought or made popcorn at home because I actually don’t like popcorn..but the only flavor I will eat is kettlecorn!!! Time for the third Terminator movie now and phones away! R is making us do a Terminator marathon because I haven’t seen any of them…just clips of the second movie…haha I’ll Be Back! Hasta La Vista, Baby. 

  

My Beauty Diary: Royal Jelly Mask for the Face! Review

Hello beauty lovers! I think My Beauty Diary is officially one of my top favorite brands for face masks. I tried plenty but the ingredients, size of the face mask, texture, and results are amazing. There are some masks that are so huge or sticky and I can’t fully enjoy the process of it. I look so funny with the mask on ๐Ÿ™‚ but after I took if off my face was visibly brighter and definitely much more moisturized!! Those of you who read my blog posts regularly know I can’t stand stickiness, but this one was just fine. I was worried because comon it’s HONEY, but it was just fine and I wiped all the leftover residue on my neck and arms! This product was made in Taiwan. ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
