Bits of Life

We had a wonderfully productive, purging, & re-organizing. It's so amazing to me how different I feel when I have clear spaces and an uncluttered life. Oh what joy! If you want to declutter your life, but have no idea where to begin...check out the 30 Day Clutter Bootcamp. This is the perfect "kick start" for your decluttering resolutions :)

This little space is right off of our kitchen...I like to call it my "mama cave". I just hung some white twinkly lights and added more fabric for diffusing the sun. I like to keep white Christmas lights up year round! Here is a great compilation of spaces that do the same (including my friend Denise's bedroom).

I finished my first "wearable" knitting project this weekend! What a thrill. It's so fun to get it off the needles and realize that all that work ends up in something beautiful. This cowl is so warm and softer than anything I've ever felt! For those of you that are knitters, I used Mirasol Ushya in cornflower with a size 17 needle.

On another note, it was my 5 year dreadiversary yesterday! I will be writing about it soon. The rainbow-colored dread on the right is wrapped with the yarn I used for my first knitting remember the journey!

Next up...a scarf for Lucy's new baby "Ali".  I have another cowl in the works with the most amazing yarn that seems to be sold out everywhere. The Malabrigo Rasta's so fantastic! I was able to find the arco iris color at the yarn shop in Bozeman when we were there...and now I wish I would have bought more! I LOVE Piedras as well.

Here is what it will look like :) Delicious.

Helping Daddy is so much fun! We had a little snow over the weekend...and Lucy enjoys any excuse to get out into it. It's always fun to get snow on the weekends when Matt is home...we snuggle in by the fire,  make yummy food, and enjoy the change of scenery together.

We had a birthday party for Baby Ali...complete with play dough cake. So sweet to see my girls take care of a "baby" I know they are preparing their hearts to welcome the real thing :)

My mom and dad gave me this bible study for Christmas and I can't wait to start it. Most Beth Moore studies are done in small groups, but I'll be doing this one self-paced and using the downloadable online videos. Looking forward to being challenged!

I enjoyed a huge green smoothie yesterday after not having one for MONTHS! I go in and out of craving them when I'm pregnant. This one had banana + peach + pineapple + water + spinach. For those of you new to green smoothies, here is my "how to" video and you can purchase a Vita-Mix from me here.

And I write, I'm listening to Bon Iver. Thinking I might go knit something. Or read a little bit. Right after I put my babies in the bath and to bed.

Enjoy your evening...xxoo
