Three awesome things on a Thursday

1) My kind, thoughtful coworkers have brought treats in to the office to celebrate my graduation and my coworker's birthday.
I got to have a big bad muffin all to myself.
My crafty ├╝ber-boss (my leader's leader) made the card herself. I was impressed!
2) My sisters, who are interns at the company - both got nominated for the VIP Scholarship. One of them is a semi-finalist who gets to give a presentation.
3) I got to spend some time with my two best friends at a free concert on the Jasper Winery grounds. It was a nice girls' night out. In fact, we might make it a Thursday habit.

Yarn therapy

When hubby and I ventured East this weekend to visit friends, we made a short stop at Crazy Girl Yarns in Coralville, IA. There, I found this gorgeous beauty - hand-dyed Blue Heron Yarns. As you may notice, it has a soft silver sparkle to it. It is also super soft and light. I am thinking of making a shawl with it.

These days

Haven't been blogging much lately, so here is past week's scoop. Been cooking some lately. Here is spinach manicotti my hubby and I had one evening.
A close-up. Yum!
And then another night I made this 7-layer dip. Oh my! It was double-yum!
I've also been spending a lot of time with this guy. He sure cleans up nice. What a looker!
And yesterday, I got to see some friends I haven't seen in quite a while. Like Aaron.

And Bill.
And Desiree.
That swing Des and I were sitting on was creeking real bad, resulting in lots of giggles.
