Day 10: Scary Stuff

Last day of the challenge, and I was even given a shout-out in the prompt! We are supposed to try a trend that scares us. Last time I put on my big-girl pants and rocked some red lipstick.

At the moment, I'm pretty well scared of everything. Just got the dead car towed away ($55) and am waiting for the results of the diagnostics ($89) and the estimate (all my $$$) and all I want to do right now is lock myself in my bedroom and watch Friday Night Lights for the next six hours. (Seriously, how amazing is a show that can make a sedentary, anti-sports person like me care so incredibly much about football? My sister Jen decided she needed to check it out when she heard me (ME!) sniffle, "It's just . . . man those kids have heart!")

Decided a few days ago that I wanted to get brave and try wearing a hat, so started making myself a version of one I just knitted & mailed off to my sister Spitfire.

Only . . . guess who doesn't have have enough yarn to finish hers?

Yeah. Sounds about right.

And now, before I go tuck myself in with Coach Taylor (not like that, dirty!) I leave us with a healing sight: my fluffy-headed little angel boy, who I hope will keep napping for at least a few minutes more.

Clear eyes full hearts!

Love the hat and the show, need to find a show to replace the Taylor sized void in my life.

Ah, shoot. I am so sorry it's been one of those kinds of days. If it makes you feel any better at all, you are one of the most mad talented people I know (LOVE that hat). And TDL is as precious as ever.

Go watch TV! I am going to do the same.

Adorable hat! And I'm so glad you've discovered FNL. Miss that show terribly. Sniff.

We JUST (as in last night) finished Friday Night Lights and Jason tonight remarked on how sad he is that there is no more Coach Taylor to watch. I kind of hate football, but darn it if those boys didn't make me care.

Also I want to be Mrs. Coach when I grow up.

Aaron hates watching any sport except surfing but he LOVED Friday Night Lights. He flew through the seasons in a weirdly short period of time. I'm kind of wondering if he worked at all after he discovered it.

Love the baby! And the hat. I would so wear a pink one. Or a black one. Or a shiny one.
