Dinner Rolls

I made dinner rolls cupcake style. I won't be posting a recipe just yet, because I feel that it is lacking something. When I figure out what it is, I'll post a recipe!

However, they did turn out pretty decent, and where very nice after not having dinner rolls for a looooong time!

We celebrated Natasha and Titus's birthdays on Monday. Natasha turns 3 on Christmas, and Titus turns 1 today.

Birthday boy.

Big brother Allen.

Cousin Garret.

Two little monkeys. Oh wait, that's 3 monkeys!

I don't think Titus could take his fingers out of his mouth long enough to blow out the candle.

Definitely enjoying his smash cake!

Opening presents.

Um...another present?

Oops, I think I made his monkey hat a bit too big! Good thing they grow!

YMI Jeans

I recently acquired a $20 gift voucher for YMI Jeans for free at http://nomorerack.com/. That particular deal is over, but today you can get a $20 voucher for $3 over there right now.

I waited for YMI to put a pair of jeans I liked in the clearance section, and they finally did! They're called vintage flare. I just got them today, and love them!
My only complaint is that they didn't have a petite option, so I'll have to hem them up, otherwise, they fit great, better than any of my other jeans.
Check out their clearance section, I noticed they added several pairs of boot cut jeans today.

(Ahem, that's not me modeling the jeans.)

Craft Show and Handel's Messiah

As usual it has been awhile since I posted. I stay pretty busy keeping up with my crochet business. I would like to start posting more regularly at some point, but we'll see how that goes.

Last Saturday I participated in a craft show in Leipers Fork. I actually shared a booth with my friend Rachel, who makes the cutest outfits for little girls. 
I think the show wouldn't have been so bad, except in Franklin, the Dicken's of a Christmas was also going. I think that stole a lot of our traffic. It wasn't a profitable day for me or anyone else there for that matter.
I did just manage to cover my costs, which is nice, and business has been going well on consignment.

I took this photo with my iPod touch, so it's not the greatest, but you can see my animal hats and fingerless gloves on the left, and Rachel's dresses are on the right. Her dad made a neat table top rack for them.

Then On Sunday evening I hitched a ride with some friends, the Botkins and Noors, to Nashville to participate in a Handel's Messiah sing along, which was a lot of fun!

I took a video of one of my favorite parts, "Unto Us a Child is Born".
