Wall-E on DVD!

Wall-E just came out on DVD. If you didn't see it in the theater, you missed seeing the cutest movie ever. Go buy yourself a copy, because you'll want to see it all the time! Yes, I'm a little obsessed, but he's super cute!

Goodbye, Fall

A few weekends ago, my husband and I said goodbye to fall by making apple pie and applesauce with the apples leftover from apple picking day. Goodbye, fall! We look forward to seeing you next year!

Yummy Yogurt

This week, I bought a few of the yogurts made by Rachel's. They are trademarked as being "wickedly delicious", so I couldn't resist. So far, they are pretty yummy. I tried the Strawberry, Orange, Mango from the exotic flavors line and the Plum Lavender and Vanilla Chai from the essence line.

I won't lie, I was sucked in by the pretty packaging and flavor names. I wasn't really a fan of the Plum Lavender, but the other two were pretty great, with nice, subtle flavors and smooth texture. If you're in yoplait flavor boredom like me (except when it comes to Strawberry Cheesecake or Cherry), I'd recommend them.

Pics below of their pretty labels:

Funny or Torture?

Andrew Sullivan had this posted on his blog and I had to steal it for my own...

Just a quick post to say that, for the first time in 8 years, I am excited about who the American people elected president. I am so glad the Bush years are over, and I cannot wait to see diplomacy return to the white house.

Congratulations, America! You did it!

Off the Needles

I started and finished this hat today! My friend asked me to knit them for her friend, who is having twins soon. Since my cat is an unwilling model (and I'd rather not get cat hair on the hats), Homer agreed to pose...

Do Not Want

I just saw stirrup jeans on sale at gap.com. Please say it isn't so. Stirrup pants are one thing from the 80's that should not come back from the fashion graveyard. Weren't leggings bad enough?

Election Day!

I hope everyone goes to vote today!

I went to the polls in Maryland this morning to find a line of about 20 people waiting to vote at 6:45am. This is the first time I've actually waited in line to vote. I drove past 3 other polling places on my way into work and they all had lines extending out the door. It's amazing how many people were there!

Election Day has always been exciting for me. When I was growing up, I used to stay up late with my Mom and watch the results. I can't wait to watch tonight, and I think it will finally be good news.

On my way out of the building, an electioneer for Obama turned and asked me if we made history today. I hope so, sir. I hope so.
