Hey everybody! We’re getting accustomed to our new routine a little easier now. We’ve gotten to a point that we can now comfortably carpool to work, which is a huge savings in gas. Sure, I have to wake up at about 5:20am (I don’t take a whole lot of time to get ready…because just like Beyonce…I woke up like this. Oh yea.) and Al has finally gotten to where he’ll sleep through a whole night without every little bump bothering him, so things are really looking up over here. We’ve gotten to spend a lot more time with our little nephews which has been great. They’re such great little boys. 🙂
I will tell you one creepy thing; when Al does wake up in the middle of the night and needs to go out, it’s really dark so I take my phone and use my flashlight app. Because who uses a real flashlight anymore?! Am I right?! Anyway, so we’re out there and its super dark and I point the light over to the fenced area where the goats are…and all you see are big white goat bodies and glowing eyes! It’s so creepy. They’re just standing there! I don’t know if they’re asleep, I have no idea what is going on over there. I have to keep Al distracted, because he’s not so sure about these big creatures with their goat eyes and horns and stuff. *Note* I tried to take a picture this morning around 1am, bad idea. The goats got a little startled and their watch dog didn’t like it. :O
I FINALLY finished my husband’s cross stitch for his office. It was going to be an anniversary present, but now it’s his birthday present..Which is Friday! 🙂 I’m pretty proud of it, and mostly the pencil. I printed off the quote online so that I had a guide on where to stitch. I made up the pencil totally on my own. YEA. It’s so cute. I wish I had a gray or silvery color then I could have made the little metal part, but somehow in my rainbow pack of colored embroidery floss, there is no gray. Four or so browns, no gray. Now I just need to finish it up and frame it…somehow.
In other news, we’ve found a house! We’re hoping to be closed and moved in by Novemberish. It might be too early to tell if we could have Thanksgiving at our house, but there might be a chance. I’m hoping to plan a housewarming party, but I’m worried that by the time we get the house situated it’ll be really cold, maybe snow and ice and people won’t come. Plus, holidays. Would it be completely crazy to plan a housewarming party for early next year once it starts to warm up? Like, once we make it through the winter? I tried looking to the devil for some pinsperation but everything looks so…Spring-y. Let me know what you guys think.
Until next time! Happy sewing everyone!

Hooray! What area of town?
Portland, basically in Kentucky :O But it’s South of Portland so it’s not exactly Kentucky 🙂
Cute pencil pattern – did you come up with it yourself?
Yes! Thank you! I had to add some sort of cute flair 😀
