“Hands off my uterus! Here’s one of your own!”

I found this interesting to share.

Yes can you believe it? I’ve been in school for 10 weeks! Whew! How time passes by, I am almost finished for the semester. Only 6 more weeks to go! Returning back to school has been pretty exciting and exhausting at the same time. Refreshing my brain with basic Algebra and English. I do love to learn, I mean come on? Who doesn’t like feeding their brain knowledge? Well at least I do. The feeling of learning something new or old again, I cannot explain. Don’t get me wrong there are days I want to yank my hair out but most days I do appreciate I was able to return to school. Yes there are the challenges, juggling school, mommy duties, household chores, etc. though in the end it’s all worth it. Trust me, it is 🙂

There are many things coming up, we are in the process of finding a new apartment to live in. I just hope we are able to find a place sooner than later; I really just want to get it over. Though I know I must have some patience and all will fall into place. Well at the time being I have studied and am preparing for midterms this past week and I am still not done. I have a lot of reading and catching up on homework assignments that’d I have neglected cleaning and laundry. Don’t worry after midterms I will take care of it. Well off to stick my head back into my literature book.

In between breaks I have been working on my first knit hat…

I’m way overdue on posting this, thou better late than never right? Some light spring yarnbombing I did the first week we hit 70-degree weather.

I am working on a project at the moment, it’s a slow in progress as I try to fit it in my crazy schedule. I really do give credit to those who are doing it all, especially the mommy’s.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Yes these crochet flowers again, I found the tutorial on YouTube and they are simple to crochet. I will be crocheting more! Hehe you can see a little someone in the picture.

Whoa it has been a couple of weeks since my last post. I do apologized for my absence. The household has been pretty hectic with doctor appointments, homework, studying, school projects, and what not. Though I promised to get on a regular schedule soon! In the meantime check out these photos from my Instagram. If you don’t have one yet, I must warn you it is addicting!

Yes this is a late post, Valentine’s Day has passed but it’s been a hectic week and I’ve barely got a chance to write this. You can see above the valentine favors I did for my son’s class which I mention here and here, all 30 of them! Yep, good thing these tiny crochet hearts were fast to crochet up after making a few of them. I did run out of time to come up with a cute clever saying, So we just settle for a simple ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ on the tags. With school, mommy duties, maintaining the house down I’m happy I was able to make these for my son’s class, I hope they enjoy them as much as I did crocheting them. You can see my little models showing them off 🙂

P.S. I am now on Instagram, you can follow me @irokmimi 🙂

I’ve recently learn about nail art and fell in love with it because it is out of the ordinary, nontraditional, and how you can express yourself thru it. I came across AstroWifey’s blog and learn she was from Chicago! How cool is that?! So I’d defiantly had to contact her to do my nails. I first met her at an event where she was giving out free complimentary manicure’s for the Bleedy Heart Project (more on that later). She is a freelance nail artist who is self-taught and has a great passion for her work. You can learn more about her here and check out her nail art!

I gave her the concept of incorporating my love for knitting and my Etsy shop’s name ‘irokmimi’ on my nails and this is what she came out with, I honestly wasn’t sure of what the outcome might be but AstroWifey came thru and I love it! You can check out more pictures here!

You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

I thought I show everyone a sneak peek of the crochet heart pin’s I’ve been working on for my son’s valentine favors. If you didn’t get a chance to read about it, you can here. They are still not finished, still have a lot to do this weekend! eek! I’ve been pretty busy with school and mommy duties; I might have to wait until everyone is off to bed for no distractions.

I hope everyone enjoys their Valentine’s weekend!

While visiting my mom in Dallas, Texas last month I learned KAWS exhibition was at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. I was so excited I called my boyfriend and told him about it, of course right away he said to me go check it out! This was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up, since most of his works are usually shown in Los Angeles and New York. So I’d mention it to my mom since I was out there, we have to go to the Modern Art Museum! And we happen to go on a Sunday when admission was free! Even better. It was a 45 min drive to Fort Worth, but trust me it was well worth it. As you know or for those who are not familiar with KAWS, he started off as a graffiti artist, He then pursue to received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York in 1996. He is known to X-ed out eyes and/or hands of his animated characters; familiar characters he has altered such as Spongebob Squarepants, Mickey Mouse, and even The Simpsons. His exhibition is running until the 19th of this month at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, I highly recommend to go out and see it!

haha yes do you see all those sneakers/shoes? There’s a lot more where those came from, I am dating a sneakersnob! (haha no offense babe) Nothing but Nike SBs! I honestly thought I had a lot of shoes but I’d think he’s beat me to it. Though since I can remember I always had the latest sneakers; Reebok, K swiss, but especially Nike’s. I never consider myself a sneakerhead and I probably only have about 6 pairs of Nike’s or so today. Dating a sneakerhead somewhat has its perks because we started collecting sneakers for our daughter. We were lucky enough to find four of her Nike’s at a discount price at 15 bucks each! Now come on, Who would pass that up right?

I have to say my favorite ones we got our daughter are the leopard white/purple ones and black/beige with pink Nike check. We always had strangers compliment on her sneakers. I’d think it’s that time again to go sneaker shopping for her 🙂

I would also love to start a vintage shoe collection for her, I saw the picture down below from cakies and just fell in love. Check out her blog! She’s a mommy of four little girls who love’s to wear vintage! Are you a sneakerhead or shoe collector? Please share! I’d love to see other’s shoe collections.
