Well I've really been enjoying my time off. I'm getting a lot of little things done around the house and it feels good. I picked up this cute little shelf at a yard sale last week for $2 and painted it for the guest room. The oval bird print was $1 at the thrift store and the framed birdies I found on etsy.
I also scored this mirror for $3.99 and it just needed a little paint.
We went to the Westword Music Showcase last weekend and enjoyed listening to dozens of indie bands play fantastic music all day. The weather was nice... not too hot!

I've been doing a little screen printing here and there. Vito is obsessed with this teenage fugitive from Orcas Island and had me make fan club shirts for him and all of his friends.
I also found a great filing cabinet on craigslist for our office. I painted it a couple of times before I found the right color. Peach didn't go over so well....
Blue is much better.
Hope you're enjoying the first "official" couple days of summer. I'm going out on the lake this afternoon with some friends. It should be interesting letting my pasty white body see the sun for a couple of hours. Fingers crossed I get my sunblock evenly distributed.
go enter emily's giveaway!

ThaNK YoU!

Thanks so much for the kind encouragement. I've been keeping quiet and laying low the last few days. It's fun to be able to open up my planner and have nothing written down. I've been outside a lot in the early mornings and late afternoons. Following the shade when it's over 90 degrees outside.I started a new knitting project for mid day when it's a little too hot for me. Cassius here with his awkward sit. He sits like this while I work in the yard and watches people walk by... for hours!
We've enjoyed a few dinners on the patio with friends.Hope you had a lovely weekend.
Enjoy your week. thanks for stopping by. xo

It worked.
I got the call on Thursday that I'm pregnant. Super exciting.
It just happened to be our anniversary too so it made for an extra special dinner out. It's such a relief... feels like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. I'm only 4 weeks along so I'll definitely be taking it easy the next couple of months. Hopefully everything goes well. I have an ultrasound in two weeks to check for a heartbeat(s). They put two embryos in so we'll see if both of them made it or if we've got one hanging on. Thanks so much for all of your support. It's still really early so keep your fingers crossed.

It's been a long 9 days. Tomorrow I go in for a blood test to find out if I'm prego. Fingers crossed.

I've been spending most of my time outdoors. I hired a high school kid to help with the yard... best idea of the year! He's amazing, and should be here any second to stain the deck.

We've got herbs, flowers (and plenty of weeds) popping up everywhere. I'm getting a nice farmers tan.

Hope you're having a lovely week. I'll be back soon with news... xo
