Lookie Lookie!

It came!!!!!! My Vera Bradley tote came!

Now I know I was told it was going to be sent to me, but when it would come was a whole different ball game! So today when I herd something at the door, I thought it was Joe coming home from work. Then he didn't come in. So I went to investigate! I found this!

Ok so I really didn't take the picture then, I went back and staged it after I opened it!(shh don't tell)

I L-O-V-E it! isn't it pretty?!

its actually a lot bigger than I imagined...!

And look what came with it... Some YARN, sock yarn to be exact! My favorite kind of yarn :O)
Love the colorway too! Its Vesper Sock Yarn a 100% superwash merino, in the Venus In Furs colourway, 387yds.

I feel so special when opening yarny goodness gifts. Thank you so much Nachaele! the Top 10 stash project KAL was fun and kept me on track! I've never won anything here in blogland so this was extra special! Oh and a big thanks to Leanne who donated yarn to all the winners of the KAL!

So guess what I just packed up my knitting in?!

The Vera Bradley tote bag, its Thursday and that equals knitting night! Yea!!! I love going knitting and now I have a beautiful bag to tote all my stuff in!

Today was spent doing laundry(washing, folding and putting away the 5 baskets of folded laundry from earlier this week), picking up around the house and making bread.

I've decided that I am no longer going to pay for a loaf of bread from the store, just to come home and eat preservative filled food. I make it at work and I have no excuse to not make it here at home. So we had a baking lesson, the kids helped a bit, but I did the majority of it. I am a bit of a perfectionist.... But as they learn I'm sure I'll let them help out more!

I am using the recipe that we use at work, but with some variations. I put more whole wheat flour in it and I added some ground flax seed. When I get to the store I'm going to buy some cracked wheat and put that into the next batch. I want to make it healthy and good! I'm not sure if its good yet, it is still proofing....

Well since blogger took so long to be able to upload pictures, the bread is baked and out of the oven... Its hot so I'm not sure if it tastes good... but if it tastes anything like it smells, its going to be yummy!

Mmm mmm good I'll leave you with that!
