Right around thanksgiving time, I was sitting on the couch and I heard this "cha-ching" noise that came from my phone. What was that?? I forgot that I had downloaded the Etsy app for my phone and I had no idea that when you got an order, it made a cash register noise! Anyways, Jennifer sent me a bundle of clothes that she wanted made into a quilt for her twins Haden & Kate to share. First thing I did was unpack all the clothes to see what she had sent and if anything specific was marked.
Like I mentioned earlier this month, Ryan's anniversary gift to me was tickets to go see The Nutcracker by the Orlando Ballet. My mom used to take us to see it most years during Christmastime but I haven't been in a long time and I keep saying each year that we should go. This is the first time Ryan's ever been to a ballet and it was pretty nice of him to buy tickets for us to go since I'm sure ballet isn't exactly his idea of fun, LOL.
We were always told that you're supposed to save the top layer of your wedding cake and eat it on your First Anniversary. I read one site that said it was because you would be poor on your first anniversary and another that said you were supposed to have a baby by your first anniversary and then the leftover cake would be served at the christening. I'm not sure either of those are true but we decided to go ahead and save the top layer for our anniversary.
I didn't have a lot of time for homemade Christmas gifts this year but I did think of one small thing to make...embroidered golf towels!
As some of you may know, December 7th was our first wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe it's been an entire year since our wedding!
If you saw the last post about this quilt, I got the top done and was ready to quilt it up.
Once I got all those star centers and star surrounds done, it was time to put together the final blocks and pieced the top.
A month or two ago, Piper hired a young female stress analyst named Angela. I quickly found out that she liked to run and was interested in running before work. I was SO excited to have found a possible running partner and it's really been working out great. After only a couple weeks we decided that we needed to sign up for a race to train for together. So what did we pick?? Click the pic to see more race info.
