Not so perfect...

Happy Valentines Day, although its almost over here. Today was a great day... well not so perfect day but nothing to complain about. I woke up this morning to roses, chocolate, and a cute little piece of art from hubby... We also took Xavier to the zoo for the first time. I think he was a little confused and for the most part was just happy to be outside. We stayed for maybe 30mintues. It was cold and I was in pain which figures since I am almost 34 weeks along....

Anyway, I have been totally wanting to do something crafty lately so I thought it would be a good idea to try making Xavier a quilt for his birthday, plenty of time because his birthday isn't until March 30th. The only thing is I know myself, I would probably buy a bunch of fabric but never have all the supplies to finish a quilt... So, I ordered a custom quilt with pretty much everything I needed from etsy seller starlitnest. Shes super helpful and put together a great little kit! So today when I got home I pieced everything together and managed to finish the quilt top. Ok, its not perfect but I am so happy with it so far... why, because I usually give up on things like this... and what do I expect, this is my first time.

Only thing is I dont have a walking foot so I cant finish it anytime soon so maybe next weekend!... Yea, its pretty much as bright and coloful in real life... LOVE... Althought I took this picture in the worst light.

Tomorrow is maternity/ family pictures.... YAY!

Yes I have been sucking at blogging but I promise I have thought about it several times.. =) Anyway, everything has been good here... I am almost 32 weeks preggers!!! OMG 32 weeks thats scary to think a little one in around 8 weeks! I have been going through the "nesting" mode, wanting to clean clean clean and I have also been really interested in picking up a new hobby. I bought some fabric and when it gets here I am going to attempt to make Xavier a quilt for his birthday!

Other then that we are getting maternity/ family pictures done next Sunday. I am so excited for this because we never got family pictures with Xavier and it seems like something that needs to be done. My idea was to do an urban style shoot in front of graffiti so we went and checked out a location I found online a week or so again. It is so awesome... here is a picture I took of it today.

I think it will be a lot of fun!!! Well hope everyone had a great week!
