The good news is that I'm in a slightly better mood today! ha
Today was the last day of my 8 week running class. We did the timed mile and some other tests like plank, pull ups and pushups. I went from a 10:09 mile to a 9:20! I didn't even realize I was getting faster! I'm taking the class again (starts next week) so I'll make it my goal to run an under 9 min mile. I also held the plank for 3 minutes, the only girl to do so! Booya!
Halloween is coming soon! I have two different events and two different costumes! Bunco is this week and I have to be an food/edible related costume. Everyone expects me to be crafty so I've come up with a few ideas. Tomorrow is costume making day so we'll see what I can find and how it'll come together. Next week I'll be making Brendan and I's costumes for our party on the 30th. I've gotten a couple RSVP's so I don't have to do that stressful "no one is coming, I don't have any friends and I'm a loser" thing. I need to figure out the snacks and rest of decorations for the house too. And see if my fog machine still works! :-)
The niece's birthday is in three weeks. I'm almost done with the present and ordered the other one so I'm good on that front. I'm starting to think about my Christmas list and what I can make everyone. Depending on money saving, I'd really like to get Brendan an iPad for christmas, we'll see how that goes.
Random picture time. Cruzin for life:

My head hurts and I'm getting stress shakes. Stupid weird nerve thing.
Money is always the biggest stressor, then there's this wedding to worry about, school and my little business. And working out all the time. I'm not even sleeping well!
And HALLOWEEN! So not ready. Need to make Brendan and my costumes like ASAP. or like next week. sucks that I don't have any money and will be trying to make them out of stuff I already have. Hopefully it won't suck. and I had the bright idea to have a party. Greeeaaaaaat.
Wow, enough bitching. I'm healthy (ish), well loved, and have been knitting more (trying) so I should just shut up. Life can always be worse.
Now I need to go to bed. Tomorrow will be a better day! Maybe i'll have another awesome dream about working at Best buy with Jackson again. Yes!

Super Secret Knitting Mission

SOOOOOO, I have lots of yarn. Not as much as friend Raime, but when you take into account how much fabric I also have taking up closet space, I have lots of yarn. So I'm trying to use it all! I don't want to buy anymore until I actually start making stuff anf using it. Since the weather should be cooling soon (someday, one day), I can get back to knitting more regularly.
Oh and christmas is coming. duh.
So I decided I needed something to take to school with me, something smaller then my other current project, so I started a christmas present for someone. It's a challenging project but I think I'll be able to do it. Hopefully in time for christmas. But I'm not going to tell you who it's for or what it is. Because I'm sneaky like that. HA
In other news, they're slurry sealing the street today. So it's gonna stink. And I have to walk a block to get to my car. Wow I sound lazy. And I just realized I need to go to Joanns to pick up some bobbin thread, so I guess I'll be forced to walk that block. poopy.

Engagement Party

Bronwyn and Evan threw us an engagement party yesterday. It was AWESOME! She really went above what I imagined and it was super fun party. Olive Garden, cake balls and some of my favorite people in the world all in one place!
It's still kind of weird to think about the wedding in like real life. I mean I think about it often, but it's almost like an abstract notion. Something that will only happen in my dreams. But then things happen that remind me that I will actually be Mrs. Thielman in less than a year. Wowzers. So odd! Today I was told that we would make beautiful babies, so that's a good sign haha
In other news, I'm almost finished with the secret project. I won't mention what it actually is for fear of someone reading and figuring it out, but it's been the bane of my existence for a few months now. I have to have it totally done in 3 weeks so I need to get on it! After that I'm going to try to make some christmas presents. Hopefully I can do it, I'm not supposed to be buying anymore yarn so I'll have to build projects around the yarn I have. And hopefully not have too much homework and actually have some time to knit.
The puppies are awesome, walking around and playing! They're so cute! I need to start actually putting the word out there and finding homes for them now!
