Any takers on the PIF Exchange???


Anyone out there? (tap, tap, tap) I haven't had one comment for this Pay It Forward Exchange. Anyone interested? Well if so, please leave me a comment...PLEASE???

On the knitting front, I am looking for a big project to start. Something in worsted weight yarn. Haven't figured out exactly what yet. Once I know, I let you know. I am almost done with my monkey socks. Yes, I know. A little slow...but life has been a wee bit busy. And since I've been busy, I have started a lace project but set it aside until I have some quiet time to spend with it.

Well, I will have pics of a complete pair of socks shortly (crosses fingers). Don't forget, the first 3 to leave a comment about the PIF Exchange are in. C'mon and sign up. It'll be lots of fun!

PIF Exchange

While blog hopping I stumbled across a neat idea. Well, I thought it was...

It's the PAY IT FORWARD Exchange. I found it on Gill's blog and joined in the fun.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This exchange is based on this gorgeous movie with Helen Hunt in it called 'Pay It Forward'. How many of you out there have had a chance to watch it? O.K. If you've yet to see the movie, this is what the PIF Exchange is all about......

"Here is how it works! I'll send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange! I don't know what that gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week...LOL... but you will receive it within 365 days, that's a promise! and it will be something yummy!! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog..."

So the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog, will get something made for them by me! I can't wait to see who you are! I should be able to come up with something good for you all, just you wait and see! Let me know you want in and if you are among the first 3, you'll be in! I'll need your email address when you comment so that I know how to reach you to obtain your address, ok?

I can't wait to see who the 3 lucky people will be.

Home again, home again, jiggady jig...

Ok, the business trip to Hermosa Beach, Ca was a blast. Yes, I worked all day Monday through Thursday, but once our office day was done the night life was great.

Monday night we went to the Bluewater Grill. I ordered crab cakes, and as crazy as it sounds...I've never had crab cakes. Yes, I know...I live a sheltered life! All I can say is YUM!

Tuesday, after a long days work...WHEW! We went to the Cheesecake Factory. I had the orange chicken. My lord that's alot of food for one person. And then we ordered dessert to go. I had never been here before, and there's one in my neck of the woods. I will definitely be visiting it soon though. YUM YUM!

Wednesday we were supposed to go fend for ourselves. HA, NOT!!! We all ended up at Hennessey's Tavern. They have great appetizers and drinks.

And then Thursday night after our final day at the office, we went to the Italy's Little Kitchen. I had lobster alfredo and a glass of Chiante, and ended the night with a cappuccino. And needless to say, that thing was loaded. I was on a caffine high for hours afterwards.

Oh yeah, I had never had lobster before either. Yes, I do live a seriously sheltered life. But, I got to live a little in Hermosa Beach, CA. I took some pics and here are a few for you to see...

This is my favorite picture that I took of the Pacific Ocean! The colors were just awesome!

Here's another shot of the Pacific...It was so pretty that night.

And here's a shot of the beach from the pier. Enjoy!

On the knitting front, I am near the heel on my second monkey that I've been working on. And I have started my first lace project. I have pics of there here soon.

C-ya! Dreem
