Vday & Baby Crochet

Happy almost Friday! Just thought I'd share some of my recent projects with you as well as how I spent my Valentine's day.
On Valentine's day, my husband woke up early and surprised me with Starbucks and 2 sets of beautiful flowers! He said he couldn't decide which he liked better - so he got both! After breakfast we went on a 3 mile hike with Izzie through nearby trails & Corriganville (where old Western movies were filmed). The weather was perfect. After we got back and relaxed for a bit, we went and had lunch at Natural cafe and then saw the movie Dear John. Only for Valentine's day could I drag him to see such a chick flick. I'll be honest, it wasn't as good as The Notebook, but still worth seeing on DVD. The leading man, Channing Tatum = beautiful! We had plans to cook a really nice dinner at home, but then got lazy and didn't feel like cooking. Instead, we visited with the newlyweds Jonathan & Sarah (from the WA wedding), saw their new condo, and ate her home made pizza for dinner - yum! I really enjoyed the day and spending time with my hubby.

Now onto my projects! I've been working on a custom order Baby Sweater & matching Hello Kitty hat for a gal at my church. I felt like she needed some matching booties too, so I made her a pair of Mary Janes as my gift to her. (Here's a link to the Ravelry patterns in case you're interested: Sweater, Booties. )
I can't wait to see her in it - I think she will look absolutely adorable!


  1. What a cute sweater set! She will love it. :-D

  2. I want to see Dear John but I'll probably wait till it's out on DVD. And Channing Tatum = pure hotness! He reminds me of Josh Hartnett who, btw, is also pure hotness! :)

  3. Lovely outfit! Who can resist to that cute ribbon? :-)

  4. That is so sweet that you got two sets of flowers.

    And your project is so cute! You are so talented.

  5. Pretty, pretty flowers! You're a lucky girl. :-)
