Fun Friday 8/5

What did I do my last week before I become an officially employed person? I watched way too much Scandal, made cinnamon bread and wished it was fall instead of summer! That’s normal, right???

I’m such a boring person……

I’d be lying if I said Hobby Lobby wasn’t one of my “happy places”. It definitely is. I love that place. I’m kind of been wishing it was fall these past couple of days and Hobby Lobby didn’t help. Although, I kind of brought the yearning for fall upon myself. I made cinnamon bread the other night and I put a scent in our bathroom wallflower from Bath & Body Works that smells like ‘warm apple pie’. It’s magnificent though! No regrets there!

I had to visit Hobby Lobby to get some new thread for my new cross stitch project. I swear, I don’t know how I don’t have every color. And since they always put out holiday things way too far ahead I got to explore Thanksgiving and Christmas 🙂

20160804_121034I am totally convinced that I’m going to need this little turkey door sign when it actually gets closer to fall. How could you not find him totally adorable?!

I did practice some self control yesterday…because I kind of have a thing for Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. They did have some Charlie Brown Christmas theme decor.

I feel like they are nutcrackers but I’m not positive. How cute though!!!!

Finally, if you like classic Christmas animation, I think you might like these cuties.

Rudolph and Clarice!! 20160804_122749

If I had a child I would be all over these. I just think they would need them. When I was a kid I had to settle for a Rudolph stuffed animal that only kind of looked like him. Jealous.

I think I just had a little too much fun yesterday exploring Hobby Lobby.

Hi, Gilmore Girls binge season watching! 

Marty says I could’ve survived during the Pioneer days.

A while back I decided I should probably develop a hobby that wasn’t running or working out. Plus, the Internet at my house isn’t the greatest (but hopefully that’s going to improve soon). When I was just a little younger, I started cross stitching because my mom said she used to enjoy it back in the day. My first year of college I stitched a few things while I sat in my dorm and watching tons of Grey’s Anatomy. Then, after that, I sort of stopped or forgot about it or something.

Anyways, once Marty and I got married I decided I needed something to do to fill my time with. I finished student teaching in December and it was Christmas time (YAY!!!!!! I miss it already!) so I started to do these little ornaments (the house I showed the other day was one of the ones I was supposed to have done then). I did a gingerbread man and a candy cane during the holiday time and then sort of stopped. I finished that little house quickly and decided I needed new patterns.

Enter Etsy. What a wonderful site 🙂 I found a set of 4 super adorable woodland creature type animals that make me smile when I look at them so I’m currently working on those. Hopefully I don’t give up or get bored or something.

Sometimes my hands get pretty tired but that just means it is time for a browsing Pinterest/Instagram/Facebook session 😉

Oh! I also randomly got these bagel crisps yesterday at the store. HEB kind of rocks even though I have a love/hate relationship with it. I used to loveeeee bagels, but I try to stay away from them now, because well in my head I have that they are “bad”. Not the point here!!! Anyways, these are flippin’ fantastic.
