Mommy and Me

I wanted to compare my picture to Nolan's...  I have no idea how old I was when this picture was taken. My dad found it while cleaning out his house and wanted to show it to Nolan.
I have no idea why but this comparison makes me so happy and giggle. He has a bit of me in him for sure!
Did that really just happen? Did I just turn 30!?!?! Really? Wow, that went by fast.

I celebrated my 30th birthday last weekend and it was amazing. Friends and family sent so much love and support, I think it was the best birthday of all. Thank you.

As you know, I am a chemist. My PhD was heavily focused on weak interactions within small water clusters.... Stay with me, there is a point to this. This weekend, C moved in with us and we had A LOT of shopping to do. While looking for an end table for her room I came across this jem:

Pretty awesome. It has the molecular formula for water on the sides. Yep, that made my day! But wait, there is more. I met one of my dear friends C for lunch today (of course with baby E) and she had a surprise for me:
Chip clips with element symbols! Oh yes! Enjoy the little things!

Watch out, I have a ton of small posts to write. Until then, keep knitting.

Birthday gifts


While, we are enjoying the summer and trying to get the most out of everyday, N has many birthday parties to attend. One is our friends daughter, Z. Her mom, a coworker of mine told me she needs nothing, I think she needs a little something from us. I decided that the best gifts are the ones made from the heart. N helped me pick out a pattern for her. Luckly, I had yarn that would work.

The basket weave headband uses sugar n cream cotton yarn. I love it. The pattern is simple and easy to follow.
 I am off to get stuff ready for homemade pizza. Keep knitting!
