and we're off ...

Today, my partner-in-craft Erin and I are hitting the road for this weekend's Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago. (Yes, it's this weekend! I can't believe it!) My little Prius is stuffed to the gills. We are armed with skinny caramel lattes, our beloved Pepsi and granola bars. I'm pretty stoked that one of my Renegade booth neighbors will be my pals and fellow Des Moines girls, Urban Posture. Also stoked to have sweet family members who are cool with letting us crash at their house over the weekend.

If you're going to be at Renegade this weekend, please please please come over and say hi!! You can find me at booth #177. (I'm getting so excited.)

And last but definitely not least, happy birthday to my super rad and extremely understanding husband. Who has put up with my knitting and massive yarn piles all summer long. Totally bummed to be missing this b-day (but I know Bo and Lo will be spending lots of quality time together while I'm away.) Happy birthday to you! (And thanks for being so great.)
