This Week in Lists – Week 12

Made big progress on the quilt top for 2.0 this weekend. Then I hit a snag *just* when I thought it was done. Will take a little more finishing this week, but I’m really happy that I’ve got it going again. Unfortunately it meant I didn’t get nearly enough cleaning done this weekend, so I’ll have to make up for it this week.

I’m so happy that I finally got my passport in the mail for renewal. I’ve only been talking about it for months at this point… Now I get to focus on more fun things like spending lots of $$$ on this trip.

I even got distracted by a pair of new shoes. I asked my guys if they make me look like a middle aged lesbian and they said yes, but I bought them anyway!

This Week in Lists – Week 11

What a blast last week was! I got to see Robyn at MSG with my friends and had a wonderful night of dancing to some great music.

Tasted better than it looks

I also made a cake from All About Cake by Christina Tosi. I definitely need to invest in some new equipment like acetate and cake rings to get that smooth “naked” cake look. And the amount of frosting was definitely not enough as was needed for the layers. The key lime curd in the filling was delicious though. I certainly ate way too much of this all weekend. Back to the gym this week!

This Week in Lists – Week 10

March has me moving on from the fun of my birth month and starting to think more about spring and warm weather. Our Paris trip is shaping up nicely and we’ve got our apartment booked. I’m keeping up with the french lessons though I find the audio tricky sometimes without a visual key to connect what I’m saying with what the word actually looks like. Fingers crossed I don’t mangle the language and can at least somewhat understand what I’m ordering in various Parisian cafes and patisseries.

Goal for this month is seeing more art and prepping myself for all the museum-going I’ll be doing. I also want to finish a few big craft projects, especially now that I know how to use a longarm quilter and can finish larger quilts more easily.
