Phew! I've been curled up on my couch, under my favorite plaid blanket since 7 pm writing etsy listings and getting the shop ready for tomorrows update! For some reason listings take me FOREVER to write!!! I'm just slow and usually 99% of my listings still have some awkward typo or mistake, haha, it adds to the charm right? ;)
Can I tell you guys how much all your comments have meant to me?! I've tried to "publish" them and can't figure it out, I want to reply to them, is it "blogingly acceptable" to reply via email? Is it dorky that I want to hug every single one of you? Probably! Don't answer that!
I keep getting the same question over and over and it cracks me up, so here goes:
- Who is Mr. McPorkchop and why is he called that?!!
- He's my beloved fiance and we aren't sure how he got the name, only that my BFF Jenny calls him that and its stuck! Haha!!! I love love love it! Mr. McPorkchops real name is Eric, but Porkchop for short! He refers to me as Mrs. McPorkchop, but I yell "HEY MISTER! WE ARENT MARRIED YET! SO IT'S MS.!!!! See? We are awkward!
I can't believe is almost FRIDAY!!! Tomorrow I'm dying my hair to cover the grey (tmi!) and Saturday I'm getting my eyebrows waxed (tmix2)! How exciting, hahaha! We are going to spend the weekend cleaning and packing for our trip! I can'ttt waiiiitttttt!!!!!!!!!
So the other night I was out to dinner with Porkchop & my BFF Aric and the next thing I knew, I was going on and on and on about ROGER! ROGER THIS! ROGER THAT! OH WELL ROGER.....!
...ROGER IS A FREAKING FICTIONAL CHARACTER! On a TV SHOW! He's ANIMATED! Why on earth was I quoting him so much!? I really have no idea, it might be that we both are chubby, clumsy and adore pecan sandies.
Realistcally, I have no idea why I like him so much, I think it might have to do with his body shape and how his animators have him moving around the screen. Either way, he's on one of the best/worst tv shows, American Dad! I feel like right now is a good time to point out that t.v. wise, I'm clueless, I rarely watch tv, as Mr. McPorkchop & I only use ours for wii and I'd rather read. I've always chosen reading over tv, but lately I've discovered the joys of tv watching online and Mr.McPorkchop really likes this show, so one evening he was watching it and I GOT SUCKED IN!!! *Notice that I feel rather uncomfortable that with all the shows out there, this one sucked me in...go figure*
ANYWAYS! Geez! Enough back story!
I LIKE ROGER! A LOT! I also like learning new things, so with the help of this fantastic website I taught myself how to EMBROIDER!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
And when you combine the two things...you get...
ROGER EMBROIDERED!!!! Hahahaha!!!! Ignore the little blue lines, its fabric marker that has yet to disappear! I FREAKING LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM!!!!
He's stitched on an organic linen/cotton blend and I used DMC floss and totally the wrong needle, so I have a charming bruised index finger, but it is *so* worth it! I think I'm going to google how to frame embroideries and hang him in my kitchen. Seriously, look at his feet! HILARIOUS!!!
I'm now deciding that everyone in my life is getting something embroidered and framed for Christmas because thats fun and amazing all at once!
Want to see something else thats fun and amazing? MAC Cosmetics and Hello Kitty are teaming up and releasing a collection! I'm pretty jazzed about that!
Ok! Geez! It's getting late and I'm getting up at 6 to sew more! I hope you are having a fantastic Thursday night!!! Thanks again for all your comments!!!!
