Home again, Home again...

Jiggity, Jig.

My trip in pictures, there just aren't the words to say how absolutely perfect this trip was. I really didn't want to come home.

Horseback riding on the beach.

We stopped here to rest our legs, it was like an oasis.

My favorite night out for dinner at Blu. Eating on the beach with my girls, I felt like I was in a movie. (My sister on the left, me on the right)

Cabarete, Dominican Republic

Common entertainment there (no chickens were hurt, they have spur covers)
A Street in Puerta Plata

Our balcony
Our boys Fabio and Alex, they are the activity guys at the resort.

We were sad to leave them, they were great guys and we got to know them pretty well. I hope they have the good lives they were striving for.

Lots of pictures to inspire new yarn colors too.

Knitting content will return next posting I promise. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

And Done.

I am officially out of time to pack for the trip. I leave to the Cities tomorrow for my BIL's wedding on Saturday. My shrug is still on the needles but I have less than 2 inches left of the ribbing around the collar so I think I can finish. There are 504 stitches in each round though. The potential to not finish is there but I plan on wearing it on Saturday and have no backup. It Will Be Done.

In the last two weeks I worked 24 hours, went to a class to get CEU's for my license, did a lot of laundry, ran kids to the dentist, bought a gift for the wedding, packed myself for the big trip and still have to pack my kiddo's. Yikes! I have a pedicure appt tonight and I think it is well deserved. Plus it is a gift certificate from the hubby for Valentines day. I know that is in February, I needed to find just the right time to go:)

Fall is here and our leaves have peaked already but it is my favorite season. I hope your Fall is going well. I'll leave you with a picture of my kidlets enjoying a fall hike since neither I or my house is fit to be seen right now.

The Pimlico shrug will have a photo shoot when I get back.
