All Crafts Left Behind

Hello, hello!

It seems like many of you like a good story. I am still kicking myself for what happened, but at the same time loving that it will be a funny thing to tell people for years to come.

I really hope she doesn’t mind my posting this, but Julie‘s comment made me crack up. Then it made me wonder about my intelligence level.

I once put diesel fuel in a super nice Jeep that was rented to me by my employer. I put about 8 gallons in when I realized what I was doing. Luckily, I was smart enough not to start the car and had it towed away. People always asked me, “How did the nozzle even fit?” (It just DID darn it) I was so embarrassed I googled how often that happens. To my relief, google told me it happens a lot, around 180,000 times a year. Thank google, you make me feel less dumb!

Um, I maybe, possibly would have started the car… well, at least I know now! ;-)

Last night, Todd and I were hungry and went to get Mexican food at the best place ever just because it’s within walking distance. When I parked, I saw this little guy on my car mirror. I named him Bob.

It isn’t easy being green!


Today, I was pretty lazy and feel myself becoming more and more antsy to get back to work. The only thing I accomplished was going on a run and doing some strength training from The Women’s Health Big Book of Exercises book. I’m pretty much obsessed with the no-gym and using your body weight section. I would love a whole book dedicated to using body-weight and not using a gym (does one exist??).

After exercising, I visited Todd on his boat. I brought him leftover Mexican and the best cherries on the planet. I bought some amazing cherries this week from Giant Eagle. They are probably the best I’ve had all summer.

Tonight, was Craft Club. I love, love, love Craft Club because I get to make new friends. It’s an equal opportunity friend zone. The funniest part about Craft Club is that making crafts is not required and can be a rarity. Our intentions are to craft, but often, we’ll just eat, drink wine, and chat. Tonight, Craft Club had a potluck at a new-friend-to-me, Olivia’s house.

She’s so cute and had us make our own kabobs! She set out wooden kabob sticks (is there a more “formal” word for this?) and we marked our stick with a marker. She had two plates out for vegetarian and meat kabobs depending on your preference. Once the plates were full, she grilled them for us.

We had plenty of fresh ingredients to pick from.

It’s a rainbow kabob!

Nidhizzle and Anna are showing off their kabobs.

What a blast! I love these girls + my new friends. Maybe next time, we’ll actually craft? One thing I realllllllly want to do is make my own jewelry. I mean, doesn’t have a ring to it?

I am so looking forward to actually being able to go to the Craft Club one of these days! I went to a bracelet making class at Shaker Sq, had a blast and love my bracelet. I definitely would like to make more. Love that kebob party idea!!!

JulieJewelry TOTALLY has a ring to it! I have a slight obsession with frequenting Michael’s (always for one item that turns into an entire cart full of crafts!) and I heard they have jewelry making classes there too. Do you get crafting ideas on Pinterest also? I was semi-proud that I recently followed through and actually made a craft project that I had pinned. Crafting is addictive (along with pinning!) Can’t wait to hear about more of your ideas!! Happy crafting!

My story is a cautionary tale! Share the knowledge! Craft Club sounds fun, well, the eating/drinking part certainly does and I’m sure actually crafting something would be fun too.

Sometime we do crafts!!! It’s just too steamy to knit or sew oven mits or do anything aside from sip wine and read Cosmo! But, I made this awesome parrot pocket tube top at a craft night recently. We should do it again, I need more clothes that look like this.
