My friend Elizabeth posted today about some of her "lately's". I couldn't think of my own lately's except the usual, laundry, groceries, etc, blah blah blah. Until I uploaded these pictures onto my computer. I do have a few lately's...

I got a gift card for a local salon for Christmas. Last week I went and got my massage. It was my first time having a salon massage. It was pretty awesome. My battery died after 2 pictures, but you get the idea of the ambience.

Super Bowl party... actually, we had no super bowl plans, but these snacks kind of came together, and we had an impromptu family party. It was really fun. I made this chili cheese dip (with real homemade chili - delicious!), a couple bowls of popcorn, and I picked up some ready-to-bake cookie dough from the store and baked some cookies. They were still in the oven when I took this picture. Please ignore the baby paraphinallia in the background.

My nephew Emmaus was born on February 2nd. When I found out that Cassie was pregnant I started crocheting this blanket. I wanted to make it bigger, but I can't find more of the orange/yellow yarn, and I pretty much ran out of time. I put a couple inches of a border around it to make it a little bigger. I like it. I hope he likes it too! :)


  1. I wish we werent sick we could have watched the superbowl together. I would love to try your dip sometime. ;o)
    Your blanky turned out beautiful. great job. I picked up the hook yesterday to do a little practicing myself. I can't believe how bad I am at it.
    Yeah for massages.

  2. GREAT JOB on the blanket! I know it must have been a lot of work! It turned out wonderful!

  3. your blanket is so pretty!

    would love for our families to snack together sometime - your treats look delicious!

    and the massage - sounds like a wonderful lately!

    hugs and sunshine to you!
