Andy and I celebrated our 5th anniversary this weekend. I left the planning entirely up to him and he gifted me with the weekend of my dreams. 🙂 We stayed at the Paris Las Vegas in a room overlooking the Eiffel Tower with a view of the Bellagio water fountains across the Strip. You could hear the boom from the water show in our room. We had an exquisite dinner at Commander’s Palace inside the Aladdin. He then surprised me with front row seats to the preview weekend of “We Will Rock You”, a musical featuring twenty of Queen’s greatest hits. I love every one of them. 🙂 The official opening is some time in September.
I’m preparing for my fall crochet projects. I ordered two skeins of Lion Brand’s Landscapes yarn from Knitting Warehouse and plan to make a purse out of it. I saw Marlo’s felted knitted purse that used Landscapes and hope to try a crochet version. I love this color!
I stopped in Hancock Fabrics today and purchased 2 skeins of LB Fisherman’s Wool and then snagged a few bags of Kool Aid to add to my collection (a house with kids is lonely without Kool Aid). I’m going to try my hand at dying sometime soon. Many projects await completion first!
