After ~9 years of dating, Matt an I finally made our partnership legal. That's right, we got married! We had a nice little joining at our house at 7:30 on February 29th, 2012. We were married by a wonderful woman, Rowan TwoSisters with Grady and Bobert in attendance. Matt had dubbed Grady the best man, but I think Bobert did a better job stikcing around. Follwoing the signing of the license we Skyped my mom, dad, sister, Jeff, and Jaxon. Each of us had a bottle of champagne- we popped the cork and toasted to our union.

Here are a couple of pictures.
Our signed marriage license!

Cupcakes picked up from 'What;s up Cupcake?"

On a side note-- I finally finished a project. We had a scrap challenge for the Houston Modern Quilt guild. I made a little drawstring bag (rawstring yet to be inserted). I use up most of the scraps and had a fun time making it. One day I will graduate to complicated patterns-- just maybe.

This may explain my inactivity on-line

So I haven't made the time to make any blog posts. I suppose i truly have no excuses except that I have been mentally concerned with other things in my life. There have been lots of changes in the last 5 months- 1) Work has been extremely busy with an upcoming drilling well, 2) Matt started a new job that he really likes, and 3) we are expecting a little baby boy on July 8th! This may be my main distraction. Instead of blogging I have been thinking about what I need to get, finding a doula, setting up child care, deciding my future work schedule, planning trips, etc. This is a fun process, but a little overwhelming at times.

I am currently 19.5 weeks pregnant. The ultrasound below is my 18.5 week image. He is pretty cute. During the whole ultrasound session he wiggled a little but the majority of the time he kept his arms covering his face and his legs in lotus little yogi :)  I only hope he is calmer than I am most of the days.

18.5 weeks old!

On the crafting front. I finally completed my little pinwheel baby quilt for my friend, Shelley. Unfortunately it was several months late. Right now I am working on a beetle bug quilt for my friend, Heather, who is due any day now. I have a little gender neutral panda quilt in the cue for my friend, Keena (due in May), and a Richard Scarry 'busy town' quilt for me. I am also hoping to knit up a few baby rattles and sew a little stuffed owl for my little boy. I have been obsessed with owls lately. There is some super cute fabric and designs out there. This is the bedding I am currently thinking of getting- Hooty owls. I am just not sure if I can still paint the room green. What do you think?
