Today we had Chad's knitting group over for a pot luck gift exchange (leftover from the Holidays). It was loads of fun. I made these pretzels from scratch! Nom nom.

February 27, 2009: Strange KitKat
Erin brought us these KitKat bars from JApan. I'm not sure what the flavor was supposed to be, but basically they just tasted sweet. Haha.

February 26, 2009: Construction Continues
For some reason, with the bad economy, I expect construction projects to just come to a halt. This one near my office continues though. I like the purple.

February 25, 2009: Barack to the Future
This person had a "Barack to the Future" bumper sticker on his/her car but I couldn't get a good photo on it. I thought it was kinda cute.

February 24, 2009: Snacks from Japan
Chad received a package from my parents for his birthday today. It had some Japanese snacks in it, I guess as a preview of what's to come! Can't wait.

Today was Chad's birthday so I decided I had to make him a cake. I made this vegan spice cake. I made cream cheese frosting - I even had to make powdered sugar!

February 22, 2009: Experimentation
I'm going to be experimenting a lot with my new camera. I took this one because I read that a narrow aperture will give clearer pictures. Turns out it's true!

February 19, 2009: Need New Shoes
Okay, these aren't my only shoes so I'm okay. But I got these at Payless about 4.5 years ago and the outside is starting to wear off. Guess I should replace them!

February 18, 2009: Broken Umbrella
A couple weeks ago I managed to break my umbrella somehow when going to class. Basically it just got bent, but now it doesn't close up today. I really liked it ...

February 17, 2009: Junk on the Porch
I came home today to find all this stuff out on the neighbor's front porch from all the renovations going on. Lovely. Plumbing problems turned out to be nothing.

February 16, 2009: Preparations
The plumbing problems mean that someone is coming out on Tuesday to rip up the basement floor and fix the sewer line. So we took breakables off the walls and shelves.

February 12, 2009: We Are Anal
Have you ever seen someone measure out spaghetti to make sure it's the right number of servings? Well, the box has 6 servings, so we made sure to split it perfectly.

February 11, 2009: My Canon Rebel XTi
I couldn't stand it anymore so I finally got myself a digital SLR. I found a great deal on a refurb body only and since I already have lenses I went for it. It is awesome!

Tonight at my book club meeting, I discovered that some people can be incredibly organized with their coupons. I had no idea coupon cutting could be such an art!

February 8, 2009: Broken Arakawa
The excitement surrounding the arrival of our Arakawa was soon diminished when we discovered that the main branch was broken. It looks like we'll have to send it back.

February 5, 2009: Palm Trees and Modis
Apparently this Modis building is a Jacksonville landmark. It was a pretty cool structure. I think it looks neat with the palm trees.
