all kinds of good news!

First of all, I wanna thank you pretty ladies for all your wonderful comments, and emails <3 , and for all the donations. Wow! You are truly incredible!

You ladies have donated $ 604! Way more than I ever expected, and hoped to get, so I am truly so thankful! I really couldn't do this without you :)

I got up super early this morning, after a long night with hardly any sleep, due to nerves mostly. I had my delicious protein shake, hopped in the car, and drove an hour away to Salem, to take the test to get licensed to tattoo. Well guess what, of course I missed the first question, and was thinking it was all down hill from there, I took a deep breather, skipped the questions I wasn't so sure about, and saved them for last, and aced the test! Woohoo! I am officially licensed to tattoo in the state of Oregon! Finally!
I am so glad it's over and done with, I am so over studying! And so ready to start work, and tattoo again! :)

I shipped off the giant package to my mom and my nephew the other day, I can't wait till she gets it, so many cute goodies for her 50's birthday, I wish I could celebrate it with her <3 Maybe her next 50th ;)
Here are the slippers I knitted for her, they came out super cute, and I am in love with the color! Hopefully she will be too <3

I got a few questions about how long they took to knit, and I am happy to share that they are a super fast knit, only a few hours! Attaching all the pieces once you are done is the least fun part, and of course waiting for them to felt, and having to check on them every 5 minutes. I am just way too impatient for that! hah!

I also had planned to knit a toy for my nephew, Kasper, but was short of time, so I made him a little stuffed toy instead. How cute is he! :) 

It's been a long day, I am so hungry, but I think I'm gonna hold out till dinner. Only hour and a half, gah! I'm gonna attempt, well no, I'm gonna quit sugar, actually I already did as of yesterday. This should be pretty interesting as I live for sugar. I just feel so incredibly disgusting after a week of binging with Irene, it's hard work showing someone around, and taking them to eat 8 billion times a day. Trust me, I feel slightly expanded if you know what I mean. Hah!
I'm finally back at the gym too, after a little lazy break. It feels so good to be back, and it makes me wonder why I didn't go for awhile. Never again! I pushed myself so hard last night, and I hurt in all kinds of places today. Love.

I also started reading a new book, didn't get very far yet, as I have been incredibly busy, but so far so good. Actually, really good. It's incredibly funny, and I was sold after the first page. And what book might this be you ask?

"Confessions of a recovering slut: and other love stories"by Hollis Gillespie.

"When I put on my special Robo bra, the kind that magically grabs fat from my ass and pushes it all the way around so it sits up under my chin, I must say I can fake people into thinking I have cleavage as big as the butt crack of a college freshman. "


Love you all,
