Opinion: Love it. Hoping Jordyn loves it, but can't see why she won't.
Her birthday is tomorrow, so I'll find out then!
Today was a rather chill day. I had some errands to run, so I took care of those in the morning and then came home, had lunch and worked from home all afternoon. I also spent some time today weaving in the ends for Jordyn's blanket. I can't wait for her to receive it tomorrow.
Tonight Jamie was a little bit late coming home from work as he had inventory tonight at work. I had fed the kids a special treat tonight, (McDonalds) as I didn't feel like cooking at all. It was easy and they really enjoyed it.
After the kids were in bed and Jamie was home from inventory, we sat on the couch, I worked on Bella's Mittens and we watched tonight's episode of Heroes. Bella's Mittens are knitting up quite quickly. I love them already. I cannot wait to wear them. Tonight I was able to finish the first one, except for the thumb. I wish I had time to knit a pair of these for everyone... that's how much I love them. I just simply don't have the time.
