Happy Holiday Weekend! Here's what I've been up to:

How was your holiday weekend? If you are in the US, that is. If you're not, then how was your regular weekend?

Fireworks 4th of July Chickens

I spent the 4th at a BBQ & Pool Party where I befriended a sweet two-year old named Talulah (she shared her special pool noodle with me), and hung out with chickens. I finished out the night by watching the fireworks from my front door. Pretty good seat. 

Nachtfalter Week 5

I made a lot of progress on my Nachtfalter sweater - ok, I actually finished it. I love it and can't wait to wear it!  

Crochet Beach Bag

I finally started my crochet beach bag! I've finished the bottom, so now it's just 14 rows of mind-numbing double crochet. It'll be a good project to pick up and work a few stitches when I need a little distraction. 

Also this is two items on my summer list - Beach Bag and Pool Party - that are close to being complete. I already took down the sticky note that said "Pool Party." Consider it done. 

Sleepy Bun

Lookit this silly bunny! She's snuggling with the wooden leg of a chair. Bunnies are funny. 

Creamsicle Addiction

Seriously - it's so hot and I can't get enough ice cream. I might have a problem. 

And lastly, I wanted to film a little something to test out my new camera equipment, so my friend Joey joined me on this ukulele duet. It's a cover of "Jolene" by Dolly Parton we quickly threw together. Enjoy!


  1. Bunny snuggles! So cute!

  2. that bunny is so adorable!! oh my gosh. And creamsicles (any kind of popsicle ice cream combo) is the epitome of summer. nom.

    1. Agreed. I had a crazy craving and a creamsicle was PERFECT.

  3. Aw, Jolene!! I made my family listen to Dolly the whole way to Tenessee last summer. And your video quality looks great.

    1. Thank you! The sound quality is the next step, so look out for more videos...
