Not the greatest picture of me, but look at the skirt I made! Sure the fabric is ugly, and it's not my cut, but the important take away is I made a skirt!! Rachel was an awesome teacher, and if you're in the Austin area and want to learn how to sew, I cannot recommend them enough.
I had been wanting an immersion blender for quite some time. I've found that having to blend soup in the blender in 4-5 batches can be quite the hassle so this was a major convenience item for me. I was able to use it for the first time recently for a sweet potato and butternut squash soup (recipe coming later this week!), and I love it! I also specifically requested this mug - in an "A", of course.
And finally, my sister-in-law, knowing me all too well, bought me a customizable, monogrammed desk calendar/to-do organizer!
I hope y'all have had fun over the past few weeks playing with your Christmas presents! Is anyone else having a hard time getting back into this work routine after the break? I'm getting back into the swing of things so stay tuned for what's to come later this week!
