Pink Socks, Part 1

January 29th 2008 by Jen in Knitting 1

I finished knitting my first sock ever on Sunday night. It was very exciting. I still have the other one to do, but it should be easier because, well, now I’ve done one and have that experience. It was very difficult because the yarn is fingering weight, which is very thin, as were the needles. [...]

Newborn Hat and Mittens

January 29th 2008 by Jen in Knitting 2

Some dear friends of ours, the Anizors, recently (like 2 weeks ago) had a baby girl named Zoe.  So of course I had to knit her something!  The yarn is a beautiful and super soft pink baby alpaca blend and I really loved working with it.  My favorite part of the mittens is that they don’t have [...]

Stupid Cotton Thingy

Ok, this is amazing.  But here are my questions: How’d it get in there in the first place and how did the doctors not see it in a toddler’s ear?

Jerry O’Connell created this parody video of the recent Tom Cruise Scientology instructional video.  It’s short and funny.

Horrifying Crime Strikes Too Close to Home

January 24th 2008 by Jen in Uncategorized 1

Apparently an employee of Zappos (which is where I work) recently murdered a co-worker.  Here is the story that I read.  Though I didn’t know either of the individuals, this is still scary and completely tragic.  Please pray for the families and friends of the victim and the perpetrator alike, that somehow through it the [...]

Aunt Carol’s Stash

January 23rd 2008 by Jen in Knitting 1

Dan’s great-aunt Carol passed away earlier this year and was apparently an avid knitter and crocheter (I never had the pleasure of meeting her).  My mother-in-law, Lisa, sent me what was left of her stash to supply my own knitting habit.  I’m awestruck at how much yarn this woman had.  Now granted, it isn’t cashmere, [...]

Breckenridge ’08

January 21st 2008 by Dan and Jen in Uncategorized 3

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of going on vacation with Dan’s parents, Bob and Lisa, and his sister and brother-in-law, Katie and Jeremy, and their little girl. We had a blast! It was such a great time and we’re happy to report no major injuries although we hear that Trent was hoping [...]

Electricity Date

Last week, we found out they were going to shut off our electricity for maintenance on Friday, so Dan planned a little date day!  It started at 9 AM and lasted all the way to 6:15.  We had quite the day! We started with breakfast at Cracker Barrel, then went browsing at Border’s and browsing [...]
