June 13th, 2011: So only took about 6 months but I finally finished the Crepe sew-along. Check out the finished dress. The underlining was tedious but necessary because I was able to stitch the arm facings to the underlining. No idea how I would have got those to behave otherwise. Very happy with the dress and looking forward to making another one.
January 5th, 2011: Decided to give Project 365 a go for 2011. I have a feeling most of the pictures I'll post will be of Bebe. So far haven't missed a day -- haha. ;)
November 16th, 2010: Very excited for my first sew-along with Gertie using Crepe from Colette Patterns! Pattern arrived yesterday and has instructions in a mini-book which is very cute. I'm still deciding on fabric -- I want to use a print so the dress isn't boring but worried the prints I'm looking at will be too much... Hmm.
May 20th, 2010: Final numbers are in for our Walk MS 2010 team... $2,745!! Thanks so much to all of our generous donors! Event pics hereFebruary 8th, 2010: I absolutely love my new cookbook: Vegan Yum Yum: Decadent (But Doable) Animal-Free Recipes for Entertaining and Everyday. If you are a vegan or just want to cook with fewer animal products check this book out. For your first recipe try Hurry Up Alfredo. Super fast and easy - and of course, yum yum! @veganyumyumNovember 15th, 2009: Completed my first 8 miler yesterday and felt great! The half marathon is starting to look doable - only about 2 months until the big day. :)

March 15th, 2009: Yesterday was my first ever racing event! :) Phil and I ran in the St. Patrick's Day 10K in Mission Bay. Even with tendinitis in my ankle I managed to get a very respectable time (for me). My time was 1:08:32 and placed 1672 out of 1909. Looking forward to our next event!
March 3rd, 2009: Planning on running a 10K on the 14th which is only about... 10 days away! Yikes! I was steadily improving over the last few months until I had to rest for an injury and then caught a cold. Still haven't felt back to where I was even though I recovered from both about 2 weeks ago. Will be a busy 10 days for Phil and I while we finish up our prep for the race.
