I wish

That I could crochet in the bath tub.

I am not kidding.

Those are my two favorite ways to relax, and I WISH there was a way to combine them… Oh well.
I have some very exciting things up my sleeves at the moment, a couple of DIY posts coming up and a new business venture with a friend that I am beyond stoked about. But I’m not telling what it is just yet, soon though, promise. I have been so happy lately, even though I’ve been working SO much. I’ve been doing so much cooking, crafting, photography, sewing, thrifting and board game playing and it’s brought me back to my happy place. 

How do you relax/what brings you to your happy place? :)

Breathe Deep

Recently I have started yoga. And man oh man, I love it. I was excited to get up early this morning, just to do my yoga. Weird, yeah? It is so relaxing and a fabulous way to start my day. I’m doing a very beginner video that is on Netflix’s instant view thinger… it works for now, but I am going to have to invest in some better videos.

Oh! The Indian food I made the other night turned out wonderfully! Naan bread is my new favorite thing to make, bread-wise. It is SO easy! I feel like there is this huge stigma attached to baking, especially bread. But really, it’s not that difficult. You will almost for sure have some disasters… but it’s all a part of the learning experience. Here is the recipe that I used for Naan. I found it on a great blog that I follow called Budget Bytes. She calculates how much each serving costs, and posts FABULOUS recipes that aren’t super expensive. I also made her Butter Chicken recipe, and her Coconut Rice. It was a wonderful meal!

Ok, so I’m clearly not doing that photo-a-day challenge… but I’m not upset about it, I work six days a week, and don’t have time necessarily to take pictures of specific things like that.

On a similar note, we received our new Canon T2i in the mail yesterday! Stoked!!!

Day 7-What you wore.

See? I did it! I am finally getting my act together! “It” is referring to the picture-a-day challege I was supposed to start a week ago. Whoopsies. I’m so glad I started it today, cause I recently (and by recently I mean yesterday) acquired these beauties and was planning on sharing them anyways. :) So here they are, my new fringe cowboy boots! I love, love, love, LOVE them. Oh so much! They have so many great details too, and I love little details on clothing. They have little gold tips, stars and obviously the fringe, which is what sold me on them in the first place. And oh yes, did I mention they were $3 at the thrift store? SCORE. I’m a happy lady!

I know, I know, there are three pictures, but I had to show off all the amazing-ness. Also, I may be overcompensating for the fact that I haven’t taken any other pictures this week.

OK, so for some reason this didn’t post on the correct day. Sometimes I really hate technology.

Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans…

Ok. It’s official. I suck.

At least at this photo-a-day business. I haven’t taken ANY yet. Fail. I will start today though, I promise. Maybe I will just do the first couple next month… is that allowed? Are there even rules? Also, I am attempting Indian food for the first time tonight. Making it, I mean. I’ve eaten it heaps of times… I will let you know how it turns out. 


In other news, I am quite possibly about to acquire a sewing machine. I’m so excited about this, I can’t even tell you. I’ve never owned my own, I am always driving to my Nana’s, or borrowing my mom’s. To have my own sewing  machine would give me so much more opportunity to be creative. Which, with working six days a week has really been my “me” time lately. I’m turning into quite the crafter-or turning into my mother, which isn’t a bad thing, and seems inevitable for every woman. Haha.
