A New Year, a New Outlook

OK, here we go. Nope, no resolutions from me this year, they don't stick. I started to change my life last April when I decided to finally get rid of some extra lb's and have reached the 60 lbs gone mark, which I'm very proud of. I'm actually shopping in the 'normal' sized clothing area..it's awesome. My secret? Cutting calories, increasing movement (I walk at least 2 miles a day) and SparkPeople.com.

On a crochet note, I'm back into it again. I had heard that some people get crochet burnout and I thought that was crazy...that is until it happened to me. Luckily I got quite a few orders at Christmas time on my Etsy store so I had to start doing it again. It got me back in the swing of things again and I've been crocheting daily again for over a month now. Lookout world!! *smile*

I've never made many baby things in the past but my husband's best friend and his wife are expecting their first child in May and he asked me to crochet a few things for them. Alrighty then! I started looking and getting ideas and now I may not be able to stop! She may have a whole wardrobe by the time I'm done. Know any really cute patterns? Let me know where to find them.

I hope everyone has a fantastic New Year and that 2009 is the best year ever. I know I'm looking forward to it!!!

By the way, when my parents were here in November we took some pictures and here is one with me and my mom and one with me and my dad.
