Preparations

So I'm super excited - I'm going to Stitches South. Just for the weekend to visit the market and to hang out and have a girls' weekend. I can't remember the last time I've done this. Shoot, I think the last time I went out of town for the weekend without the boys was when they were babies. So I'm getting prepared.

Today I have a very long list of things to do. Cover up very grey roots, catch up on laundry, make sure house is tidy, pack all my stuff... We're leaving at O'dark-thirty tomorrow morning. That way the man only has to take one day off of work to take care of the boys. I'm pretty sure what knitting I will be bringing. I also think I will bring my swift and winder, just in case I buy something that I cannot wait to play with.

Do you not *love* the cute Della Q pouch? It goes with my brand-new Della Q tote that I got to carry around at Stitches. I figured I needed something more tote-like and less purse-like. And the little pouch will hold my business cards and the cards for the LYS where I work.

Oh and I'm trying something new. I've been wearing makeup for nearly 25 years. And I've worn the same mascara the entire time. So when I hit the Publix yesterday and they had a sale on Great Lash I got very excited! But then I thought, I might branch out a bit, be adventurous, you know? So I got the Great Lash BIG. I imagine my eyelashes will look exactly the same as they have for the past 25 years, but I still feel very spontaneous.

If you're gonna be at stitches, come say hey! I'll be mooshing around wearing one of my shawlettes and carrying a big ole pink striped Della Q bag. Ooh, that reminds me, need to add finding my Ravelry name pin to my list of things to do today... Hope to see you there!
