Knitting with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn!

 I couldn't find my cable needle so I used my stitch holder instead:-)

 Good afternoon! It's been a pretty hot and humid week out this way and I've been trying my best to keep my mind busy that way I can gracefully survive this summer.  So I decided to try to knit up a blanket for my nephew with a yarn that I had never tried to work with before and once I was able to really inspect the yarn I fell completely in love with it and pretty much decided to keep this blanket for our baby instead lol.   Yes my nephew got jacked BUT I do plan on making him one just like it so all is well and who knows I might just change my mind again and give this one to him and make another one for my son .

But onto what I'm doing with this project!  I've been on a knitting role for a while now and I have no plans of changing that anytime soon.  The pattern that I'm working with is on the Bernat company and I found the link to the pattern on
The name of this pattern is called Shadow Cable Baby Blanket and it calls for extra bulky yarn and a size US 11-8.0 knitting needles. 

So far I love the pattern and I love the yarn because it works up so quickly, but I do have to be honest and say that it is a bit of work working with this type of yarn.  But it may be due to the type of needles that I'm using.  

So this is my latest project and once I'm further along I'll be back to share more:-)

There's A Human In My Belly!!

 Yup my husband and I are growing another healthy human being in my belly and I couldn't be anymore excited than what I already am at the moment!
Was our little person a surprise? YES and now I'm being so impatient because I just want my due date to get here already so I can just look at our little creation count all their fingers and toes and just love on our little miracle:-) 
Did we announce our surprise to the world?  NO! LOL  The only people he and I told were our parents and our Pastor and that was mainly because we just wanted to enjoy the moment for ourselves for as LONG as possible and we're glad that we did it that way this time around.  But with that said,  God is good!!!

Naturally Silk Elemnts Whipped Curl, Deep Nourshing Conditioner and Leave-In Conditioner Cream: My thoughts!!

So I just finished a really long review of these products and it will be on youtube in a short while but I wanted to come here to let ya'll know that these items are the TRUTH!    At least for me they are because they all moisturized and softened my hair to the max.  What made them even more awesome to use are the facts that they were all under $10 and my husband loved the smell of my hair after I used them so I think it's safe to say that I will be using these products again.  The only negative things I can say about two of the three is that the deep conditioner doesn't smell all that wonderful and the whipped cream FLAKES BUT it still left my hair feeling and looking good.  Have you tried any of these products out and if you have what are your thoughts?

One of my favorite things this summer!

This seasoning is the truth!  My favorite way to use this is to sprinkle a little bit of this on my watermelon and then I enjoy!  It taste just like the lolipops I used to get from the store and ice cream trucks:-D

What's you favorite snack for this season?
