Baking Frenzy

I have to say...I love weekends. Even more so now that I am not a student. I did my grocery shopping last night (i didn'tget much though because I only had a $40 budget this week) so in theory, I don't have to leave the apartment at all today. I also have complete solitude because my boy is working.

I decided to celebrate the day by baking my little heart out. It's one pm and so far today I have made one dozen vegan bagels, tofu scramble for two, and six dozen non-vegan cookies (for the boys work). I am planning on making approximately 4 dozen burritos today (breakfast & lunch for the boy and I throughout the week), and a few dozen vegan cookies. Delicious. I am super proud about my bagels. They are cinnamon with green/purple raisins and craisins. I also added some cinnamon and sugar to the top for an added crunch. I got the recipe from this fantastic website called They have thousands of fabulous vegan recipes. I absolutely adore the happy vegan chocolate cookies and the kale chips. I made this tofu scramble for breakfast this morning with some toast and Earth balance. Mmmmm....

My boy bought me a new sewing machine for my birthday in December, and I have yet to use it today. That all changes today. This afternoon is filled with hours and hours of sewing goodness. I have a pair of flared jeans that are just screaming....'We want to become skinny jeans. Please!' I can't deny them this privilege. I am not too sure how skinny jeans will look on me....but lets give it a shot.

Oh and this is something completely random....I think my right armpit is sweating more so than my left one. It's very unbecoming at the gym to have sweat all on my right side...but not my left. I don't like sweating very much in the first place, but if I do sweat, I expect it to be even at least. I feel like it is the least that my body can do for me since i am trying to be healthy.

A year has come and gone....

Oh my goodness.... I can't believe a full year has passed since I last wrote in my blog. So much for this commitment. I have decided though to post fairly regularly though since I now have internet connection and have decided that I want to be a famous crafter. Like Martha, but only a lot hotter. So, I guess I have a lot of updates to do (not that I have any readers, but more out of formality).

1) I graduated from University. Hurray for two degrees, a failing economy, and student loans out the wazoo.
2) I moved from Boulder, CO to Richmond, VA to Washington, DC.
3) I started dating a cool guy named John, got engaged to him, and we are celebrating our one year anniversary today. We are going to get married sometime in September of 2009. Hip Hip Hurray! Expect lots of wedding details here.

I think those are the biggest updates. I still love to knit. Still hoping to design some fabulous items. Still trying to get down to my fighting weight for my wedding.

PS...Oh and seriously...I love Jared Flood and all of his delicious knitting goodness. I drooled all over my keypad today staring at his beautiful knits. I just don't know how he does it. Sigh...
