I just finished up a pretty big project (for me...), a sweater vest I made for my husband. I'm still debating on putting my pattern up on the blog, it was my first adult-sized project.
Now I want to address a little problem I am having... My husband recently installed wood floors in a part of our home, and I really want to keep them looking nice. At the same time, I really don't want to spend tons of money on chemicals that my kids shouldn't be coming in direct contact with regularly, I mean, they do walk/crawl/lay all over the floors at times.

It's not exactly glamourous, but I have some of the Sugar'n Cream yarn left from some other projects I've made. I'm also going to whip up some hardwood floor cleaner. So far, everywhere I've looked for a recipe says just to use mostly water with some vinegar and maybe a little essential oils or lemon juice to get it to smell nice. I'll figure out a good mix I like and share soon. To top it off, it will give me a nice quick project to work on for the car ride to NYC this weekend.
I'm so excited!!!
Did I tell you?
I'm going to NYC this weekend for a 3-day totally kid-free weekend. It's my husband and I's (don't mind the horrible grammar...) 5th anniversary, and we haven't gone anywhere without the kids since our "honeymoon".
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE my kids, but everyone needs a break sometimes. And, what better place to spend it than in the city that never sleeps?!?!
Besides, there's a few places I need to go, you know, the really important places like: Mood, Purl Soho, and of course Jamba Juice. (My poor husband, now I'm laughing).
