Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>


I confess...

The morning stated with the discovery that the Mister had accidentally poured my vanilla creamer in his cup and regular creamer in mine, so I got to have fun taking 'stache selfies.


I confess...

I finally finished up a crochet project that is intended for me....if you follow me on instagram, then you might have seen these.

It did actually get cold on Wednesday, so I was able to wear my new beanie all day.

I confess...

Some family circumstance have meant that we've been able to spend a lot of time with this little guy this week.

It's so funny to watch him and the Mister play. On Wednesday night, we was already down when we stopped by. The Mister said he was going through withdrawals from playing with the baby.

I confess...

When my hair started getting stepped on in jujitsu this week, I decided that it was time for a cut. Nothing feels better than a fresh cut and style.


I confess...

I was excited to see that Miss Angie decided to extend voting for the My So-Called Chaos Best of Blog Awards through the weekend. Please go by and vote for High-Heeled Love. We're in the final three for Facebook Fraulein and Best Linky Party for Friday Confessional.

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

I confess...

That between work, family drama (we won't even get into it here) and getting ready for a trip to Asheville, there isn't a lot of time for confessions today.

We're going to have to leave it at that and hope that I have time to come back for updates later this afternoon, but I hope you'll share in the confessional fun.

Easy peezy. Now on to the wine.

So yesterday was...

Which worked for me, but if you missed it, don't worry. There's another wine-related holiday coming up this weekend.

On another note, I'm loving this print. I think it would be fun to art journal something similar.

And here's another fun Wino Wednesday art project that looks fun.

Sunday, February 16

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Welcome to the Weekly Round-Up linky party, hosted by me and Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos.

This party is all about sharing those fabulous blogs that you've read through the week and promote our blogger community. I hope it will help you use this party to find new blogs to read and build some new blogger friendships.

So, here are the rules:

1. Grab the button.
2. Write a little list of your favorite reads this week and why.
3. Link up below and go find some fabulous new ladies to be friends with.


Grab button for WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="WEEKLY-ROUND-UP-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 250px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/47f1b200-2680-4570-861b-31a2456adb15_zps324769d5.jpg" alt="WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="250" height="250" /> </a> </div>
That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. I though this list of ways to to support the blogs you love, written by Ashlee at Where My Heart Resides, was a full of good ideas. I especially like the idea of sending your favorite bloggers coffee.

2. If you're thinking about starting a small business of some sort, especially selling online, you'll probably enjoy this list of five things that Jessi at Naptime Diaries did to start hers. You know the planning stages can really make a difference.

3. Looking to use pinterest to grow your blog (aren't we all)? Here are some great idea from Sarah at Venus Trapped in Mars.

4. I wish that I had the talent to makes these adorable Valentine's Kiss Meringues, which Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere shared last week.

5. Everyone of us who has ever started a blog can related this two part series by Busy Being Jennifer about misconceptions about blogger. Part 1 and Part 2.

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>


I confess...

I'm happy to be back in the office today. Two days snowed and iced in is about as much as I can handle. Staying home from work wouldn't be so bad, but when the ice is so thick that I can't even run to the grocery store, I start to get a little bit stir crazy.
On Wednesday night, our yard frozen into a skating rink. I'm so glad that stuff is melting today.

I confess...

I spent a lot of time reviewing crochet videos on youtube, and even attempted a crocodile stitch yesterday.

Now that I think I have the hang of it, I'll have to decide on a project to try the stitch in. (See my other snow day crochet endeavors on this week's Wino Wednesday.)

I confess...

My godmother posted on Facebook the other day that this is her new motto...
If a wine doesn't make your mouth happy, why drink it?
I think I'm going to adopt it as well.

I confess...

The Mister and I have big Valentine's Day plans tonight of ordering pizza and opening a bottle of wine. My kid brother and his girlfriend are coming to visit this weekend, so we're keeping it casual. BUT we have a special trip to Asheville planned soon, so I don't need a lot of romance for Valentine's Day.

I confess...

I'm still a little shocked that High-Heeled Love was nominated for two blog awards at My So-Called Chaos's Best of Blog Awards. If you haven't voted for Friday Confessional as best linky party and High-Heeled Love's FB for Facebook Fraulein, go check it out; the first round of voting is open until Feb. 20.

Easy peezy. Now on to the wine.

We're snowed in again (more like iced in), so I'm having one of these kind of days:

There's been some mad progress on my bobble stitch blanket; it's nearly halfway done.

And I'm having fun using up yarn scraps to learn some new shapes.


And this song by Blitzen Trapper seems appropriate to me for Wino Wednesday since it's titled "Thirsty Man."
