Hello!!! Okay, here's what I've been up to...
We went to the State Fair the weekend before last and had a blast! Here's the baby sweater I entered. It got honorable mention in the advanced category. We even ran into my Matron of Honor, Christy, who I worked with at the insurance agency. We were so happy to see each other. She lives far away so we really don't hang out. She even got to feel Morgana kicking. That was exciting!
Stu and Ryn shared frog legs, 'gater on a stick and crawfish with fries for lunch.
Stu and I also went on a date last Saturday. The first date we've had in a long time! It's so nice to have a little extra money to do that now that we're both working. We went to the movie Devil (thumbs up!) and ate at Cafe Rio, then came home and had coffee. We wanted to go out for coffee and dessert, but we had already had chocolate flan (first time flan for us both, yum!) at Cafe Rio. So, we just did coffee at home and watched Surrogates on Netflix. That was a good one too.
Stu and I also went to a college interview yesterday for Stu to get his masters in psychology. I know, I know, you're like, "What? He went to school for video games, didn't he?!?!" Yes, he did. But, he's discovering that it's really hard to find a job in that field and that he's not really into working in that market, no matter how much he loves gaming. He has always been interested in psychology and feels he may have jumped the gun in the decision to go the gaming direction. But, the good news is that he doesn't have to get a new bachelors in this field since he already has one. Bonus! Good luck, honey!
I'm also still growing a baby. It's coming along very nicely. Here I am at 24 weeks(6 months). Not the best pic of me. =/
Speaking of baby... In this cornaaaaaaaaaaa.... Rowdy Rowdy Baby Morgana!!!
It's a little hard to see, but she's kicking just under the top right flower (of the shot) on my dress.
I can't stop casting on projects!!! I'm a bad girl.
And here's the sock monkey I've decided will be for Morgana. I'm writing my own pattern and am pretty please with how it's going so far! I know, it's a little disturbing to see just monkey butt and legs... but this will change soon. I work on this one on Sundays. (Except for today. I will be working on the following today as I just started it last night and am excited about it...)
I know I said I wanted to do that sock monkey blanket for the baby, and I still do, but I decided I wanna do this one first.
It will look very close to this (the pattern pic)...
The design and colors of this quilt like pattern remind me of a amazingly similar quilt made from jersey material that I had when I was a child. I used that blanket until it was thread-bare and the squares were falling away from the blanket. I would love for my baby girl to have something reminiscent of my childhood… even if she never can see the quilt I had as it’s now long gone.
Sissy, if you're reading this, don't worry, I'm doing your baby's blanket exclusively during the week. Sometimes I just need to break it up and do a couple things at once, lol.
Until next time!
