Well - we had the shower!! It turned out fantastic... the food I made was delicious!! I made two different quiches, a spinich & feta one and then a sundried tomatoe one.... I also made the most fantastic fruit salsa and cinnamon chips to dip in it!!! I will be making that for every party for the rest of my life I think! I'll have to post it on here just in case someone ever reads this and wants it! Ha!!
The daughter got a lot of nice gifts and many gift cards so they could buy whatever they wanted/needed. Which was great! Now daughter #2 is going to go to Hawaii to live with her sister for the summer - I guess untill the wedding... she's also taking her BFF... and they will have a blast living in Hawaii!! My feeling is - do it while you are young and have no responsibilities!! Wish I had done that when I was that age - but no - I had to get married...
I'm currently knitting the Back to School U-Shaped Vest from Fitted Knits. I'm using LOVE - which is silk/bamboo. I love it! It's really soft and looks great - with just enough shine... should be beautifull when it's done - and I'll be able to wear it year round. It was supposed to be knit in wool - but I just could not bring myself to do that right now in this heat! I'm also trying to finish the Razor Cami so that Daughter #2 can take it to Hawaii with her. I had messed it up while sleeping while knitting - and so I had to tink back several rows... so I set it aside for awhile... but now - I'm motivated to Get It Done!
Verse for the day:
"Let those who know what you're all about tell the world you're great and not quitting. And me? I'm a mess. I'm nothing and have nothing; make something of me. You can do it; You've got what it takes - but God, don't put it off." end of Psalm 40
