Catching up on everything

It has been a fun and busy week. As I promise here are pictures from the spectacular Bronx Ball which my family was invited to because we're lucky to have a brother who is the organizer of the event. As you can see there were some celebrities that were inducted into The Bronx Hall Of fame for their achievements in any area of life(ie. TV, Film music etc. ). It was an absolute and spectacular and beautiful night at the beach. Kudoos to my bro.. for such a wonderful event....

And even though there has been much partying I still found the time to start my lace dress:

I 'm still trying to figure out how to pick up the stitches but hopefully I do that today and keep you posted.

My precious Moon is away and I miss him dearly. He is staying with one of my best friends in PA because I didn't have a babysitter this week and she offer so graciously to have him share some time with her boys which are almost the same age. I know he is having a great time but Mommy misses her shadow dearly.....

I'm knitting along and then........

Like I promise I would start my knitting journey again, and I have. So here I am knittting along my Debbie Bliss cardigan when wowsa! Big Gaping Hole! Holy Manolo Blahniks what happen! So off I am to Rip Rip Rip...and and start again.

In the meantime I started swatching for my next year summer dress( and I say next year because we all know that it ain't gonna happen this year..)

The pattern recommends for a 20 stitch gauge per 4" a #6 needle. I'm getting 22 stitches so I need to go up a needle size. So off I go to try it again. Any recommendations?

Now I'm on my way to start getting pretty,as for tonight we're are heading towards the beautiful, swanky and fun Bronx Ball 2008 at Orchard beach. We're getting all dolled up for tonight. So I need to miraculously lose some lbs and reduce my stomach so I look perfectly coiffed and hot (dream on but I'll try) in my sexy dress and of course my shoes...Here's a little peak of course of my shoes for tonight(because we know that's priority)

The little soldier is kneeling in awe,because my shoes are smoking hot. Wait until you see the whole outfit. I will blog tonight and show picturs, see you later......

Holy Bags!

These days have been busy but a good busy. Exercising, knitting(yes slowly but surely), and very little shopping. But alas my new discovery, it's a bag rental website where you can rent a bag and try it out and then return it after certain period(almost like netflix). Well I thought I would give it a try and I rented an inexpensive one for an evening event that I 'm having, and this is what I got:

I order this beautiful Lockheart Bag and it's breathtaking with the only exception that I didn't read the measurements and it's bigger than I thought but I will use and flaunt my bag around for a month and then return it. Now isn't that cool..... Have to go and rent a real evening bag.
