It's still all mainly about the Melo (look whose picture is prominently placed at the top of this page!), and what we're in to, up to, and trying to do, and all of the other good bits in between.

Nice photo (not mine!) but it reminds me that I'm very excited, despite the fact that our impromtu Cinco de Mayo party at work was postponed due to timing conflicts (it was a potluck for goodness sake's - the essence of come if you can). Anyways, I think the girls will head on over to the festival for some treats at lunch provided its not raining. And I may just have to make those mexican chocolate cupcakes anyways . . . .

A night out

I'm a bit surprised to be up and functioning so clearly - it was a very fun girls only (Josh is under the weather) night out. We had planned to go see roller derby, but I spaced and didn't get tickets in time so we instead wound up at Lupa (excellent wine bar in NoPo on Mississippi), then went to the Billie Holiday Tribute for Siren Nation at Mississippi Studios (live music, when good, really rocks - and these ladies rocked), and then to Moloko Plus (amazing cocktails, great DJ and yummy vittles). Moloko Plus has been around a while, but new to us since it doesn't look like much from the outside. It's like one of those rocks with the crystals inside 'cause it is very cool - house infused liquors fill giant vases around the all white interior, and there is an authentic atari gaming system you can play while just chillin' out! Erica - I found a whole new bit of stuff for us to do on your next visit - start planning now!!!

back to blogging

Yeah, facebook kinda took over for a while. . . . that and we were not spending any time in the basement, so alas no computer/blogger access. But, I've decided to get on the bandwagon again and maybe even liven up the place a bit.

For now, here's a sneak peek at what I hope to work on next (once I finish my dang rainbow circle quilt!!):

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time

If I don't get a chance to make the doll, maybe I'll send the rainbow quilt instead . . . . Anyways, either way I've got to get my butt back in gear on crafting. Thankfully, Erica's visit (aside from being AWESOME) brought about a renewed love of knitting, further fostered by yummy new yarn. I need to hit Chrissie up to plan a weekend away since I've fallen off my make-it-for-christmas plans and there's only 8 months left!!!
