My big gift from my parents was my KitchenAid mixer!!!
I am so thankful for my parents and all they do so I invited them over for dinner cooked by yours truly. Ever since we moved into our house over a year ago, I kept meaning to invite them over but it never happened.
I started with baking a cake from scratch. I messed it up because I used the wrong attachment on my mixer but they still ate a slice anyway. :)
|It didn't stay together very well :(|

|I love the lazy susan on our dining room table.|
This game is so much fun to play but it has a lot of rules and it takes awhile to get the hang of it. Needless to say it was pretty funny teaching my parents how to play.
Since Blake and I really enjoyed our first set of pull out shelves, we decided to set another set that was on sale since now is when I have time to install it. Thank goodness it did not take as long as the first time.
|This time I started sawing in the middle so I wouldn't be sawing at a weird angle.|
|All done! It only took me an hour this time to get the shelf down.|
|All the stuff in the drawers|
|I love these drawers!!!|
Since I have already started my stocking, I hope to have it done by next Christmas. I am trying to take pictures as I go and was trying to keep track of how long it takes me to complete it but I'm pretty sure I have lost count. I'm not going to post all the pictures here but here is a sample.
|This is what the final stocking should look like.|
Since school started back again, I haven't had as much time to work on it but I hope to get in a few hours here and there during the week.
Man, my life is so exciting. Cooking dinner, installing shelves, and cross stitching. But for whatever reason I enjoy all of it. :)
