Shoes-day Tuesday #8

Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk Turquoise Metallic $169.95

...yep. Those are it for this week. Obsessed. I would sell a kidney for these, I think. I am in love. My wallet, however, will probably never agree with the sentiment :c

Music Monday #6 - AFI

ALMOST MISSED IT! GAH! I'm trying to be better about keeping up with this, I swear!

AFI again! Oh well, I suppose I have a handful of favorite songs I can pick from...

As always, you can friend me over at here!

Two years!!!

Today marks two years since my last puff off a cigarette. Two years since I decided, "This is it. I am done with this forever." Two. Whole. Years. Let me tell you, I have been through some gnarliness in my 27 years, but this was by far the hardest thing I've ever done. No joke. I started when I was 16 and it sort of became something that defined me, which is ridiculous. I was known in my social circles as everything from the standard "chainsmoker" to "Human Chimney", and smoked close to two packs of full-flavor 100s a day. Needed a smoke? I was sure to have one (or twenty, or 200...)!

I'm not really sure what the catalyst was that pushed me to finally kick the habit. I had tried about ten times before and only actually successfully quit once when I was a teenager, but started right back up. It may have been the prices going up dramatically, it may have been me becoming bored with it. Who knows? What I DO know is that the withdrawals brought on the worst panic ever and poor Terry had to deal with the brunt of my emotional outbursts. I don't think I the cravings even started slowing until about two months later (WITH patches, that's how hardcore I was!). So glad I did it, though, it was more than worth it. So here's my public pat on the back! What a crazy milestone, I NEVER thought I'd be able to do it!

New layout!

Pretty stoked, even though I just kinda threw it together. I'd been meaning to overhaul the layout for a while. I'm sure I'll still do some tweaking in the coming days, but here it is! Check it out if you're seeing this in a reader!

Got a post scheduled tomorrow that's pretty special to me. Stay tuned!

More crochet-y goodness!

Oh man, what neglect! School hasn't been too rough, and Jade's been in great spirits, so all I can think of is that I haven't been feeling quite 100% lately. Not sure what's going on there. I've also been crocheting a fair amount since I've been kinda stuck to the couch. Check it out:

I LOVE making hats, I've already made three cloches for myself, a beanie for Terry and I'm still working on a beanie for Jade (with little crocheted horns!). Also started making granny squares for a blanket I'm working on!

Pretty stoked to see a bunch of bloggers I follow are picking up on crocheting, too! Excited to start buying up some books you guys have recommended so I can get started on Christmas gifts! Woo!

Happy Halloweeeeeen!

Ours was pretty good, not too eventful, just got dressed up and headed to the mall for a minute, then left when we started to feel awkward soliciting for candy for a kid who isn't even a year old. Ha! It was fun though! Jade's first Halloween! YAAAAYYY!!!

I was SO surprised Jade tolerated this costume! I thought he was gonna put up a serious fight!

More Sugarpill :P

Finally finished my dress Saturday night, but ran out of fringe! Oh well, it still looks pretty awesome :D
How was your Halloween?
