Mmm...Sour cream apple pie! A good thing to have on hand when you find out that someone lit a fire behind your car and melted a bunch of the back of your car! Thanksgiving was fun other than that! I am still in need of sunshine

Last night was fun! a little laundry, a drive down to the Colma Joann Fabrics for a bunch of polyfil and a great movie with my best guy! We saw The Fall! It was beautiful and funny and cute. I loved it. Tonight I'm letting Ryan take the bus home and getting some sewing on! Baz Biz is in less than a week, wish me sunshine and warmish weather.

Hey, whatd'ya know, I did get to the little robot guy!

new stuff!, originally uploaded by laurensmashtoys.

It is funny when you set your mind to something, almost always it works out! I have been trying to make more time and use more energy sewing then sitting around. I think it is working out quite well! Of course I do have a lot of help from "This American Life" and episodes of 30rock for watching on, but other than that, its all me. :D

I have a couple of shows coming up in a few weeks and I am trying to get some stuff accomplished for that!

I also have set my mind to cooking more. Ryan has been painting that sign for his work and so yesterday I made garlic bread and baked ziti(well really rigatoni, that is all the noodles I could get), It was *so* tasty and homecooked and great. We used to cook all of the time and lately it has been all going out and picking something up. Its not as good for you, not as good tasting, and I have to leave my little sewing nook. I don't like any of those things. So I am pledging to myself to cook at least 5 nights a week. I have to get to work making a list of meals for the week and getting Ryan to get ingredients from his market.

I am starting to think about sewing up a few gifts for the fam, I think this year is going to be mostly buying stuff but I may have a few things I want to whip up. I am starting to get so exicted! This is definitely my favorite time of year. I have to go to Target this weekend, I think I will pick myself up a Holiday - y present!

Robots on the mind

I'm sewing today! I don't know if I'll get to this little robot guy, I have a few ideas up in that brain of mine! It is a good afternoon! I cleaned the kitchen, straightened my room, downloaded a little 'This American Life', and am now getting down to business! I'm really getting in the holiday spirits, the season is coming so fast.

Ryan doing his thing, painting the sign for his work. Awesome! Tonight we're going to see the band American Steel at Bottom of the Hill. Should be lots of fun! I got a chance to travel all over this crazy town today on a mission to find fabric, i finally got some good stuff over at Britex, and even though it cost me my first born child, I'm excited about sewing tomorrow! And that's what its all about!
