Crochet Items, new toms!

WELL, hello AYYO! It has been a busy holiday season and I am finally ready to jump back into Ayyo. I have had several crochet orders but I will only post my favorites, so I don't clog up the blog :).  I looove the baby ugg inspired boots and the little monster hat :). So much fun to expand and do something different!

I also am got a new pair of TOMS for Christmas and had to share :). I love them so much. Right on time too because my last pair is getting a little worn out. I hope you all had a fabulous Holiday season with your families. I can't wait to get started on the new year with lots of new craft ideas and maybe just maybe an appearance by Libby???

I love my toms, but who doesn't! I received my first pair for my birthday last May, and I am hooked! (Of course Libby has had them for several years and gone through several pairs lol). I couldn't help take a picture of mine while shopping because look at the AMAZINGLY, AWESOME plaid carpet! I LOOOVE IT. Stripe overload :).

Apple Dip

I love this dip for two reason. 1) it is always a crowd favorite, and
2) it has three ingredients. Seriously. Soooo Good. Plus, who doesn't
like a dip that has cream cheese in it! I made this for a little nursing gal 'dip night.'

                                                             Ingredients include:
                                           -1 block of softened cream cheese
                                           -1 cup (packed) brown sugar
                                           -1 tsp of vanilla

Mix until creamy, and this can take a little awhile!


Serve with green apples! If you do this ahead of time, don't forget the lemon
juice to make sure your apples don't turn brown!

my canon and I

GAHHHH! I love the first snow :). My canon does too...
it told me... We found a sweet little spot near a lake this
 last fall, and it is just as pretty in the winter.   


I think the picture above is my favorite, the tree branches were all
dipping down into the frozen stream. So pretty.

Breaking Dawn Part 1

Well, we finally saw it. Possible spoilers ahead... Libby and I have both read all the books (which are better than the movies), don't be haters :). The movie was good-mediocre. The birth scene was not for me though... Some of my favorite parts included the wedding scenes, and the imprinting scene. BUT my favorite, favorite part of the movie was the MUSIC. The soundtrack was one of the best I have heard in awhile. I even had a part in the movie where I had to lean to libby and have her 'shazam' a song. We were unsuccessful. However, when we got back to my house we used spotify and found the soundtrack. :) YAY. Some of my favorites...

One of my nursing friends made this cute little wallet. She brought probably
15-20 to give out. What a nice little surprise and put a smile on my face. Someday,
when I get a sewing machine I want to make these. Adorable. :)
