About me

This post is inspired by 1 of the blogs I follow and love which belongs to Miss Kaylah.

My name is Kapi (Pronounced like the word happy) I feel the need to clarify that only because some people tend to pronounce my name as "copy" :(
I am 26 years young, Will be 27 on August 5th.
I currently reside in upstate Central New York, Rome to be exact,
With My Husband Jesse of 7 years and like 4 months, and our 4 kitty cats, Souxsie 8 a Tortie, Blondie 7 a Tabby and Nuby and Misfit both 2 yrs and some(they were born in the same liter), Nuby is a tabby and misfit is a tortie. We love dogs too and have had a few before but our current living sittuation(renting) does not really allow room for any.

I was born and raised In Honolulu Hawaii and lived there until the summer of 2003.
I met my husband Jesse in November of 2002, we spent pretty much everyday together after meeting and fell in love pretty quick. He proposed about 2 weeks after we met and we were married on December 19th of 2002. And from that point everything was a bit of a whirlwind.
Jesse was in The U.S Army at the time so we had to go where they said basically.

I Love reading first and foremost it's a bit of an obsession almost.
I also love body art and modification and am currently in progress on my own.
I dye my hair a lot!! Manic panic's Red, purple and black are my usual's, I also want to be a hair stylist and going to cosmetology school is something on my to do list that I need to stop putting off.
I love creating and crafting. I sew, embroider, paint and knit. I would love to figure out crocheting also!! I just have the hardest time with getting it down.
I hate and am horrible at math, it literally gives me anxiety.
I am horribly afraid of moths!
I love the colors: Red, Aqua and Pastel Yellow.
I need music like I need water and air, the types of music I love are Punk, Gypsy Punk, Rock, Psychobilly, Rockabilly, Reggae, Some dance hall, Oldies and Some jazz.

That's pretty much all I can think of for now as far as basic info goes :)

Long time no Blog.

It's been over a year since my last post, wow! It was also a crazy year.
We moved, still in the same dinky town just in a new apartment.
I joined a Roller Derby league back in January of 2009, and that basically consumed my life!
But now that I am kinda pulling away from that a bit I can get back to having a life, haha! :)
Lots to update about and I think for spring maybe a blog re-vamp too!
Still crafting, mostly embroidery lately, but still loving all of them.
And I am working at a local sub and wing shop now, part time but it's a paycheck and the schedule allows me time to get my behind back in school which I need to do!!

Apron for vintage apron swap.

So my partner received her apron yay! And loved it, I am so glad. I had fun making this one, and the ruffles were a new venture for me. But I am glad I know how to do those now.
The pattern was Butterick's 6567 view D.
As for the other swaps I am doing I will be done with a 2nd item today for my partner in the mini holiday swap. After I do my homework :( boo on homework! haha!

On another note we picked up a Christmas tree yesterday! It's purty, and it is almost finished settling so I'd say by this evening I should be able to put on lights and the ornaments will be added over the week :) I love waking up to the house smelling like Christmas tree!!

Cheesy Spinach & Garlic Lasagna

Yummy Cheesy goodness! We got a good amount of snow today here and it was quite blustery. So some comfort food like this was definitely in order! It was a very simple bake compared to the lasagnas I usually make. Spaghetti sauce, ricotta spinach and garlic mix and lots of mozzarella!

I am still waiting on my partner to receive her apron from me, I hope she does soon!! I am anxious to see if she likes it!! I sure hope she does, And I will post pics once she receives.
I also joined 2 other swaps "mini holiday swap" we have our partners for that and I have brainstormed 2 out of the 3 things I wanna make for my partner. I just have to get the supplies and everything. I also joined the TNBC X-MAS swap! We get partners for that tomorrow I think, yay!!

Also my turkey is done defrosting, I think. It definitely feels like it. I am glad because I was worried it would not have defrosted in time. Yay thanksgiving, I am looking forward to it fer sure! Black Friday as well :) Joann's opens at 6 am and I will be in the parking lot by 5:50am!! hehehe!

Chicken Katsu Curry

Is what was for dinner last night. With rice of course. Chicken Katsu is another popular local fav dish back home. Served either with Katsu dipping sauce or with Curry stew poured over top the chicken katsu. We usually prefer it with the dipping sauce, But I was craving it the curry way last night. As I said in the previous post plate lunches are served with rice and mac salad back home, and I forgot the mac salad last night. So about 2 bites of chicken in dear hubby goes "Honey no mac salad? :( " Me: Sorry Hunny I forgot, oops, lemme get ya some from the fridge. Hehehe! He is so cute and surprises me at the oddest times.

Here is a chicken katsu recipie for anyone interested.
For the curry all I used was a box of the golden curry mix, it's all I ever use and prefer personally. Most local grocers carry it.

On a crafty note, I am almost done with my partners apron for the vintage apron swap rd 2 on craftster. I just have to add the waist band/ties and some last minute touches. I hope my partner likes it! I am loving it myself, I think I may have to make one for myself too ;) With different fabric probably though.
And I joined another swap too, the mini holiday swap rd 2. Looks fun!
Swaps really are addicting :)
