I love Wal Mart.

Where else can you get a basket full of yarn, pringles, and Diet Dr. Thunder?

I just stocked up on enough yarn to make three more blankets.  Operation Christmas present is now underway.  Good thing yarn is cheap and abundant at the Wal... I bought what I could today because I know that the closer we get to Christmas, the more likely they are to be out of the colors I'll need.

Today's a rest day--no running or ballet--and I'm excited about sitting on my patoot all night, crocheting, and watching TV.  Awesome.

Speaking of TV, you have to watch this music video starring Mindy Kaling (Kelly on The Office).  It's hysterical.  I don't know if it's just for a webisode or if it's going to be on the show tonight, but it's really funny.  I love that it's featuring "Nard Dog."

Aw man, they took it down--my youtube link was bad. You can see only it on now. Here you go.

Mindy Kaling's also one of my favorite people to follow on twitter.  I consistently laugh at her tweets.

This one's on Youtube too, but I can't find one with the embedding feature enabled.  You'll have to leave and click through to see it.  I love Disney... love Pixar.  Can't wait to take the kids to see this next summer.


  1. I <3 rest days! Sitting around can be a wonderful thing!
    Have a great Friday!

  2. You can crochet?? That's talent. I tried to learn from my grandma this summer but I couldn't do anything but make chains unless she was sitting right there saying NO don't do that or YES you got it!

    As soon as she left I lost all memory of what the hell I was doing and how many I had chained.

    I admire anyone who can pick that skill up.

  3. The Lyon brand yarn website has great step-by-step instructions with pictures. I taught myself using a book called "I can't believe I'm crocheting"--important thing is to find a good book since when you're alone it's hard to remember. It's like that for everybody, but once you practice with it, it doesn't take too long to figure it out.

  4. I love me some Nard dog!!!! Have you seen The Hangover yet???

  5. Oh I love me some Wal Mart too! They don't have any around us in LA so I go to Target most of the time, but it is not the same.
    PS. Hilarious video! She is so funny!
