Friday Surfing

It's been a busy week of working and creating and birthday celebrating. Wednesday was my dad's birthday and I am a terrible daughter because I did not have a "Happy Birthday Dad" post. We did however, have a lovely birthday dinner of Pumpkin Ravioli, a recipe from Natural Health Magazine, salad, bread and peanut butter pie. Hope you had a great birthday Dad!

Yesterday, I had some cancellations in the middle of my day, so I headed to the mall to look for clothes. I am in desperate need of clothes that fit me. The problem is, I'm not wanting to spend a ton of money, because I'm hoping to gain a few pounds back. Trying on pants yesterday, I learned I am two sizes smaller in pants...that's a bit much. I didn't find anything...well nothing in the price range I want anyway. I may resort to altering some of the pants I already have. I have 3 pairs of brand new pants from the end of last winter that are HUGE on me, just sitting in my closet.

I have spent a lot of my nights lately looking for inspiration on the internet. I've come across a few new sites that I love. Thought I'd share a few with you for your Friday internet surfing pleasure.

I've been spending a lot of time on food and natural cooking sites lately. Two of my favorites are smitten kitchen and bread and honey. Elise.com also has some great recipes.

Knitting blogs and sites have been on my internet surfing list as well. I've been checking out
The Purl Bee, Mason Dixon Knitting, Ravelry and Flint Knits.

I've been looking for holiday decoration and gift ideas all over scrappy blog land. A few of my standby's for great inspiration are Ali's blog, Elise's blog, Cheeky Magpie, and Christine's blog.

Of course, there's my usual shopping sites...Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, Etsy.....

Happy Surfing!

Oh you are such a bad influence :). You know we'd be pure trouble if we lived closer together ;).

I've been trying to stay off the computer this week (such a distraction) to work on sewing for the bazaar, but after that I'm going to take one of E's preschool times to collect all my Christmas want to/need to/what to buy/what to make lists and map out a game plan for December. It's going to be a great month!!

Happy Weekend!
