Project 29 and Goal Updates

Nothing crafty today...just pictures and my goals.  I'll be back tomorrow with my next wedding card, as I'll be attending wedding #3 this weekend. :) 

Okay, I haven't shared pictures since the first week of September! Where has the time gone?!? Oh,'s me at work 11 hours a day at my day job and slowly losing my wits, lol.
It was my friend Tricia's birthday and we went to Isabella's for dinner.  Such wonderful Italian food!
Sadly, it did end up raining at Jon and Janine's wedding, but we were able to get through the ceremony before it started to pour!  Here is the lovely couple.
I had the guests who were sitting with us take this picture.  I forgot that I put my new lens on the camera for my class.  You can't zoom in or out with it, so the shot is really close up, lol.
My craft group did a buy-in for twine. Since there were 10 of us who did it, we each got 24 yards for 12 different colors. By splitting it, it only was $16.50 per person. I think I'll be set on twine for the next decade, lol.
For Jenn's belated birthday dinner, we went to Demetri's.  The food was delicious!  This is the baked brie we had. Afterwards, we had a crafty night at Nona's. 

Now that you have caught up on my crazy life for September, it's time to check in with my goals.  I know I'm like 2 weeks late, lol.
