We are heading to San Diego today for the weekend. It is one of my favorite places to go. We will be enjoying lots of relaxing, card games, playing at the park, and most importantly eating good food from these two talented friends. This will most likely be the last hurray before baby comes, for me at least. A few things before I go:

- I promise to share pictures when I return.

- My sewing machine is finally repaired and back in my possession so more sewing to come soon. Well that's the plan anyways.

- After this week's doctor appointment, I realized that this baby is coming soon. I feel emotionally and mentally ready but there is not one thing about this home that is ready for her arrival.

- Shane only has THREE MORE WEEKS OF SCHOOL!! I can't tell you how excited and proud I feel when I think about this.

Ok, now I must go get ready. The to do list includes packing all the clothes, toys, and food, cleaning this apartment up, and getting the car washed and loaded. Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend with family and friends.

Shane's Birthday Recap

Shane's birthday wasn't a huge party or shindig but it did stretch over the course of a few days. On Thursday he was able to see the new Star Trek movie at work. He had the day off on Friday (his actual birthday) so we started with breakfast and a couple gifts. Sydney and I woke up early to make him breakfast including these amazing muffins.

Then Shane went out for some DVD and Blu Ray shopping. In the evening we went to a Dodger game with a bunch of friends from church.

It was so much fun to be back there for a game after more than a decade. Sydney had her first Dodger dog and they even had fireworks in honor of Shane. heehee

Then on Saturday I toke Shane out for a date night. We had a little hiccup in the plans but ended up eating great sushi and watching The Soloist at the Arclight in Hollywood.

Happy Birthday Shane!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo

Veggies for fajitas

We don't really celebrate the holiday in our house, however I will use any excuse to have Mexican food (especially when pregnant).

Another Blanket in Progress

Even with the other three blankets in progress I started another one this past week. This is a hexagon shape in burgundy with rose pink stripes. The plan is to have four large hexagons and then use triangles to connect them all. I am not sure exactly how it will work out yet but I have a visual in my mind. We all know that sometimes it takes a little trail and error to get something in our minds out into the world so I will let you know how it goes. Like the previous WIP's this one is for a gift too.
