livingsimplistically Isn't he sweet? He just wants me to be happy . My husband does too as he just pretends he doesn't see me buying new yarn. I have yarn stashes on every floor so I might need to slow down... No, no I don't . #heygirl #thebestwordseverspoken #acraftersdream #yarnobsessed #moreyarnplease #hegetsme #thanksIdris #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #livingsimplistically 2d

livingsimplistically My pink and green hat is done . This was an interesting stitch to work with, though I probably won't use it again . I already have a handful of projects in my head to start working on. #busybody #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knittingisthenewblack #knittingissexy #homemade #pinkandgreen #1908 #AKA #yarnobsessed #livingsimplistically #brokenribstitch 3d

livingsimplistically My sister @robbinsimmons7 is in town and we are bonding over some yarn . Our grandmother taught her how to knit too. She didn't even tell me that she'd been knitting . #knitting #bonding #crochet #fireplace #sisterlove #sisters #family #livingsimplistically 7d

livingsimplistically When crafters suggest you use the yarn they are using, its for a good reason. My chains didn't come out as nice and the asymmetry of the lines of my chains is going to drive me crazy . Either way, I shall finish what I started. More than half done. #diy #crochet #pillow #crafty #homedecor #project #yarnobsessed #crafter #yarnobsessed #livingsimplistically 1w
  •   knitt_whitt You're allowed to *not* finish what you start if it's gonna drive you crazy! Life's too short, enjoy your hobbies. 1w
  •   abee_demi @007belle you're next project 1w
  •   007belle Hehe i'll put it on my list @abee_demi 1w
  •   livingsimplistically @knitt_whitt I know, but incomplete projects drive me crazy. If I don't like how this looks I'll just redo the front panel. 1w
  •   runninginpeace I love the color!! What type of yarn are you using? Wool, acrylic, etc? I wonder if blocking might help. 7d
  •   livingsimplistically @runninginpeace this yarn is wool. I'll try to block it. I've never done that before. 7d
  •   runninginpeace I've never blocked a crochet project. It might help, but no guarantees. If you need blocking mats I have a couple. 7d

livingsimplistically The vanilla extract on the left is ready to find its home with my sister who is celebrating her birthday today . The others will be ready in 4 weeks. You have not tasted vanilla extract until you have made your own. #realvanilla #madagascar #vanillabeans #homemade #homemadegifts #vanillaextract #imakethangs #livingsimplistically 1w
  •   nursedee81 How do you make it do you have a link or video uploaded somewhere with a demonstration? 1w
  •   livingsimplistically @nursedee81 I was going to blog the instructions, but it's very easy. For every vanilla bean, use 2 oz of vodka. I think I used 80 proof. Slice the beans in half and be sure You to cover the beans. Let the beans sit for 4 weeks. The longer they sir the better the vanilla extract will taste. 1w

livingsimplistically This is not an outfit of the day post () but on this particular day of this outfit, I realized the progress and success of my 30-day #soretothecore program. Tomorrow, I'm shedding my clothes and sharing the real deal. Stay tuned to read if I decided to repeat this program as well as my thoughts. #soretothecore #abs #highschool #fitness #fitmoms #busymom #healthylifestyle #livingsimplistically 2w

livingsimplistically 22 skeins later and my rug has not yet reached full capacity. I want this thing to fill the ENTIRE space. I must say this rug is the most comfortable and cozy (and costly) DIY project to date 😧. At least my kids like it. #morecowbell #diy #makeitrain #neverendingdiyprojects #homedecor #craftychristie #nothingbutthebest #imakethangs #rug #circularrug #livingsimplistically #crochet #yarnartist #bistitchual 2w

livingsimplistically Sad I missed the drive with my school (The School of Public Health) but I was able to support with the AKAs dropping off water for the residents of Flint, Michigan. My daughter has quickly learned the meaning of helping others through my service. #thisispublichealth #uic #publichealthstudent #publichealth #AKA #1908 #servingallmankind #service #helpthoseinneed #livingsimplistically 2w
  •   knitt_whitt Omg I am so invested in this crisis. You're amazing for doing this. It's unbelievable what's happened and what's STILL happening! 1w
  •   livingsimplistically @knitt_whitt I know, it's horrible and instead of sitting back and pointing fingers, I believe it is our civic duty to help. Every bit helps! 1w

livingsimplistically What to do with that extra ground turkey? Make stuffed bell peppers. I was a little envious and made a vegetarian version for myself using @morningstarfarms' veggie meat crumbles. I am that mom who cooks meat but doesn't eat it . It's a talent! #dinnerideas #dinner #stuffedbellpeppers #kidapproved #busymoms #healthyoptions #livingsimplistically 2w
  •   knitt_whitt Glad to help but sorry for limiting your options! Even Gardein has GMO, which really bummed me out. 1w
  •   livingsimplistically Whaaaatttt? Say it ain't so @knitt_whitt. Guess I'll go back to making my own veggie like meat. That sucks. Is there a list somewhere or you just look for a certain ingrdient? 1w
  •   knitt_whitt @livingsimplistically There must be a list but I just look for Hydrolyzed Soy Protein or Hydrolyzed Soy Isolate. 1w
  •   livingsimplistically @knitt_whitt I think found something. Also, I think I just need to cut our any processed veggie food. 1w
  •   knitt_whitt @livingsimplistically Lately, I've been leaning towards cutting out eggs as I still consume dairy and fish (though taste-wise, most fish doesn't appeal to me but I do eat shrimp, too). 1w
  •   livingsimplistically @knitt_whitt I was trying to go vegan but then I decided to just listen to my body. I tend to stick with fish and some seafood but haven't had any lately. It's scary because you don't know what is safe to eat these days. 1w
  •   knitt_whitt I know! I research like crazy for the food and treats I give my dog, too. Lol 1w
  •   michihighlights Agreed - it really is! I learned to get really good at this skill over the years for my meat eaters @livingsimplistically.🏾️ 1w

livingsimplistically Yesterday I stopped by AKA's National Office to pick some items up for our 82nd Central Regional Conference and got a tour, which reminded me of the Sorority's rich history. On this day Nellie Quander incorporated the Sorority so members like me can be a part of this amazing sisterhood and continue to be a service to ALL mankind. #yeeeees #j29 #incorporationday #AKA1908 #1908 #pinkandgreen #historical #alphakappaalphasorority #AKA #livingsimplistically 2w
