  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

hittin’ the wine and girl scout cookies pretty hard tonight

I really needed that sewing time this afternoon.  REALLY needed it.

Except that what I made was super ugly.

So I’m hitting the wine and girl scout cookies.  Except I lost our cork screw so I am limited to Sauvignon Blanc.  And, as every sommelier learns on day 1 of ‘wine pairing for sugar addicts,’ girl scout cookies and Sauvignon Blancs are not a recommended pairing.

So that’s my evening.  An ugly-as-sin gaudy-as-Mardi-Gras quilt back, wine, and a $4 box of cookies.  Perhaps now is not the time to finish off my accounting.

Kelly - Been there. Done that. But no wine… I’m a cheap drunk. 😉 Tomorrow will be a better day! 🙂

Jennifer G - Hilarious! I feel your pain. I cut the back to my blanket 3″ short the other day… I haven’t tried to sew since. Just in case you were wondering: a red Zin and Thin Mints don’t pair well either!

Sonia - Thank goodness for cookies. I konw what your talking about. Give it time it will come back.

Susie - Ah, Traci. I’m sitting here with a glass of port and Thin Mints, which makes me laugh and think we all are more alike than different. GOod luck working out the details, lady.

Lee - LOL. Glad I’m not the only one … : )

Beth Moore - I heart you. Seriously. HEART. YOU.

Charise Randell - OK, confession time….Red wine and i am about to unleash the hershey kisses….. I swear it will look better tomorrow : )
