i'm so excited and i just can't hide it....

we are only 2 weeks away until my first guest arrives and i am getting so excited! and nervous but lets not focus on that. lets focus on the fact that i will finally get to show my family my "hood" so that they have more of an idea what it's like to live out here in the Middle East... in reality, besides the lack of sour cream and Double Stuffed Oreos, it isn't so different. some days i love it here in Abu Dhabi and i feel like i live in paradise and other days i wonder what i'm doing here. but it will be fun so show our families how much fun it really is here : ) besides i get to see my family and my niece who is beyond beautiful... my sis will have to check to make sure the baby she brings home with her is real and not a dolly i put in frieda's place so i could keep her ; ) hehehe just kidding...

so to pass the time waiting for my family to arrive i have been knitting. but i didn't want to start some big complicated project that i would have to take a two week break from... i wanted instant gratification so i have been knitting (beyond slowly) baby booties. they are almost done. i have one put together and the other i am done knitting but need to stitch up the seams and add something extra like bows.

anyways this is where i'm at so far.

Wow! You've been really busy on your blog lately. You're making me feel lazy. The booties look like they are coming along well. Good luck with the countdown.

PS. I just saw your list of books! I love Janet Evanovich too! It's a guilty pleasure of mine!
