What Are You Thankful For?

It is hard to imagine that tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Time does fly! I am ready to pig out on Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, pumpkin pie and who know's what else. It will all be yummy! I know I have been busy today making two loaves of banana bread ( It is a great recipe if anyone wants it), date pudding and cowboy beans (for tonight- so you may not want to sit next to us at the game. haha).

Today I wanted to wish everyone a early Happy Thanksgiving and hope everyone enjoy's their time with family and friends tomorrow! I know I am thankful for so many things but Thanksgiving is a time it reminds me once again of those things. A few things I am thankful for is my wonderful hubby, my parents, family, friends, able to have a turkey dinner, our home, our church, great workplace, and the wonderful memories that I had with my little sister:) What are you thankful for?

Posting yet

Ugh! I just posted and it still isn't posting on other blogs. Would anyone know why it is doing this?? For now I am going to post once again. Lets see if this posts?! Crossing my fingers but I dunno. BUT if it does post... scroll down to see what we have been up to.

Posting or not posting and Tutu's

Well It seems my posts are not updating on other blogs:( I don't know why and I hope this one shows an update. I haven't done anything different so I don't know what is wrong. But it has been less than a month since my last post!
Also on my last post I posted some tutu's that I have started making a few weeks ago. I just made another Christmas tutu today (green and red) that I love. I am so ready for Christmas!! Check it out and the other two Christmas tutu's. Have a great week-end!!

Little to long

Just like the title says. It has been a little too long since my last post. I'm just going to update you a little on the Knepp's nest. We haven't been too busy lately...have really been trying to enjoy this awesome weather! I know the cold weather is approaching pretty fast and I don't like the thought of that one bit. I seem to be cold ALL the time. No joke! My hands and feet are always freezing....I 've already diagnosed myself with poor circulation. What am I going to do when I get old?! Probably wear 2-3 pairs of socks/gloves, have our house set on 80 and have Jarod walking around in his undies. haha. But I do seriously hate the cold and usually the winter unless there is pretty snow out:) I could live in 80-90 degree weather all year round but in Indiana that isn't going to happen:(

So we really haven't been that busy these past two weeks. We have been hanging around the house (actually watching some movies), visiting some family/friends, shopping, working and making some tutu's. One day last week my parents and I we went to the Edinburgh outlet mall to find some good deals. I didn't get many things there but hoping in the next week or two I can go to Indy. Mainly Indy b/c I found this shelf/desk at crate and barrell that I loved and would fit perfect in our weight room. I have been looking for the past couple months for something that would work great and finally found something. If you don't know me though...I usually look around probably too long. So hopefully pics. in an upcoming post!!

Also I have started making some tutu's!!! These things are soo addicting to make! I have been wanting to start making these since this past summer and finally about a month ago started. I think they are so cute. I have made some in different colors and sizes already and want to try to some other things out with them. I will post some that I have made already and if you would like to buy one I am selling them for $16. Any size and color(s). They also have an elastic waist so they can stretch 3-5 inches and fit comfy around the waist.
I started making these as a little hobby. Especially in the winter time when there isn't much to do outside these give me something to do inside. I have been having to much fun with these;) I have a couple Christmas tutu's I am not finished with yet that I will post another time too.
