My Latest Creation!!!!

My sewing buddy came over and help me make this really cool Hobo Bag. It's lined with a contrasting fabric and it's soooo awesome. I just need to add a nice wool bird on the front pocket to finish up the bag. This bag took me less than four hours from start to finish. If you want the write I can write it up by hand. I made my own pattern and it turned out awesome.

Tulsa Zoo

No time to blog...sorry, my blog sucks most of the time. Life just keeps on getting busier and busier with each passing day. I thought once the kids reached a certin age I would have tons of free time but I was sooooo wrong.
During Thanksgiving break, I had planned to go to the Tulsa Zoo with several friends. At the last minute everyone bailed on me. I wasn't about to dissappointed the kids. I decided to take the to the zoo by myself. I know some of you would of thought that would of been crazy idea to go to the zoo with three kids all by myself.
I figured it would be best to keep them busy instead of being home and bored which is never a good idea.
This was our first trip to Tulsa Zoo...I seriously don't know why I never ventured to take them to this zoo before. It's the prefect size zoo not to small or big. The price was just right.
The kids were amazingly good. I was a miracle. A two hour drive to the problems, four hours at the zoo, and two hours back home again no problems. Who took my kids space aliens. The kids were so well behaved. Leroy thought for sure I would call him at work to complained about the kids but I didn't.
So, if you haven't made the trip yet. You need to go! I swear...I have lived her for NINE years and this was the first time to the zoo. I always thought it would be really expensive but it's not. It only cost us $20 for one adult and three kids to get in.
Logan's favorite animal was the giraffe. He keep talking about how hard it must be to catch a giraffe to put into a zoo. Silly boy...I'm sure most of the animals at the zoo where born into captivity. Also, the zoo will be opening a new exhibit for seals. Logan also talked alot how hard it's going to be for the zoo to catch the sea
Anyhoo's...I feel so blessed to be able to spend the whole day with the kids without any distractions. We didn't even look at the clock once we were at the zoo. We just loved living in the NOW. more last minute note...Leah couldn't stand the smell of the inside animal houses. She kept on pinching her nose to keep out the smell. It was really cute!

This is where you will find me, on Saturday mornings with my cardio group. I'm part of a free running group which is open to anyone and everyone. Every Saturday, we meet up and run together wether it's hot or extremely cold. BRRRRR....It's only 24 degrees outside.

Look cloesly at hte picture...I'm one of the few ladies who doesn't have a some type of ear covering. I still couldn't believe how fast the weather can change around here. I decided no more cold ears for me. Why not try to knit up a headband. I was really jealous of all of my friends headbands. Nothing like running with numb ears. So, if you scroll down you will find the pattern and pictures of the finally project.

Plus, I'm going to knit up a couple more headband to give away as xmas gifts for my running friends.

Unfinished Projects

Last year, I started this project but I never finished it. It's amazing all the stuff, I have not finished over the years. I thought it was quite silly me, the loom and knitting supplies sat in my desk drawer. I decided to finish it this weekend. The hat was so easy and fast. A total of three hours...done. One less thing, to have to haunt me. Another completed project. Plus, it's cute.
