Granny Squares!

I started this granny square afghan after taking a crochet class at JoAnn's.  It took a while for me to finish it so I am happy it is finally done.  I have quite a bit of yarn left...I must have really overestimated and I wasn't ready to make this any larger!  So, I'll be working on another crochet project with the leftovers...I'll share pictures soon.

Hot Chocolate and Food Network

On Friday, we read an article about three top places to get hot chocolate in Chicago. On Saturday morning we happened to pass one, so we stopped to try it...and got a big surprise. They were filming a Food Network show! We agreed to be interviewed for the show and we were also in background shots while they interviewed others. Watch for us on TV sometime this Spring! Here we are with Adam Gertler, the Food Network star who interviewed us.

Handmade Gifts

The last couple of weeks have been great since we spent them visiting with our family and friends for the holidays. We spent some time with Jason's parents before Christmas and then we went to Michigan to visit my family. We're back in Chicago now so I thought I would post pictures of some of the gifts that I made for Christmas this year. Happy New Year!!
