What I'm Working On

It has finally happened! I graduated the Masters' program and I'm free! I am so excited to have gotten through the program but I'm also excited for the FREE TIME!

Here's what I've started working on

My friend asked me to help her out by making a baby blanket for someone she knows. I'm so excited! I'm working on the middle green square and then there will be cream and brown with more green in the mix. Going to look super cute and match the colors she is doing the nursery with well. I'm just hoping I can dedicate a lot of time to getting this done!

Of course my shop is still open but the orders are few. I haven't done a lot of advertising and I plan to pick that up once I get some of these other projects (like winter hats of the family). I look forward to spending more time being with the family as well. Our oldest is in first grade and needs some help in reading. He is a WIZ in math but you ask him to read or write and he freezes up. I'm glad to have more time to work with him. :)

Hope all is well with everyone out in blogland! Hope to see more of everyone in the coming days, weeks, and more!

Huzzah! I have been in the deep need for a vacation for quite some time. The last time I took an actual vacation from work was a year wait, maternity leave which was 15 months ago. Crap. I need me some fun!

We are flying into Vegas Tuesday morning. My sister is picking us up from the air port and then we're going to the Hash House A Go-Go and meeting my BESTEST FRIEND for some breakfast. She will be there celebrating her 30th birthday. I feel bad missing the party but at least I will be there the day after for some birthday updates.

Then we will drive the 1.5 hours to my parent's house in Laughlin. HURRAY! I cannot tell everyone how much I cannot wait to hug my parents. I'm sure they feel the same about hugging me and my family. :) They haven't seen the kids in nearly a year.

The next 3 days will be spent hanging out with them and MY NIECE! I haven't seen Beth since I got married 8 years ago. She and I grew up more like sisters rather than Aunt and Niece. I tear up just thinking about how long it has been. I cannot wait for her to meet my babies.

Party part party till Saturday. Saturday is my grandmother's memorial. We are seeing family that I haven't seen in about 5 years. Nathan was a year old when we saw this side of the family and most of them were not at that that event. Nathan will have lots of cousins to play with. :)

Then back to my parent's house for two more days of play time before we come home! During this time I'll be doing my LAST WEEK of class for my Masters. I plan to have some sort of celebration while I'm out there. OH and Mike and I are hoping to squeeze in a date night so we can celebrate our 8th Wedding Anniversary in the town we were married!
