My Long Weekend

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. This weekend turned into a very long weekend for me. I was originally scheduled to work on Friday due to our business being in the US. Then we found out this past week that we have Friday and Monday off. Friday was so relaxing, I worked on the puzzle and did yoga after so long not doing it. On Saturday we had some friends over for a BBQ, I got groceries and prepared beforehand. It was fun hanging out with them on our terrace and it was the perfect weather. Then on Sunday I had my parents over for a visit and we sat outside. Today is the last day off and I knitted, played Sims, did the puzzle, and did some cleaning and yoga. 

I started knitting socks using the perfect pair yarn from Loops & Threads in the colorway drive all night. I am knitting the socks using Loops & Threads size US 2 2.75 mm double pointed needles. I love the pattern of the self striping yarn it looks so interesting. I am using the pattern for basic knit socks on the yarn label intermediate level.


I worked on the puzzle more after a long break and finished it. Millie loves to jump on the table onto the puzzle and bite the pieces. Today she did a bit then gave up when I stopped her a few times. Once she moved, I could finish it. I bought this 500 Ravensburger puzzle called Cozy retreat on Amazon. I loved working on this puzzle and wish I could jump into the scene it looks so cozy and fun place to just hang out and work on crafts and hobbies.



On Friday, Millie saw her chance to check out our storage box I was filling for under the bed and jumped in. She didn't stay in it too long and let me finish filling it up.


Millie was very relaxed and happy in this photo on Thursday night. She knew it would be a good weekend with lots of relaxing time with mom and dad. 


Thank you for visiting my blog today! I am working to get back to my schedule after a long break off. I have been feeling good lately.  I still have some moments when I feel a bit nauseous but it is much better and less than in my first trimester. I hope that you all have a great week!

I'm Pregnant!

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I shared a post last week after a long break of being away. The reason why I wasn't posting for so long was because...I am pregnant! I was feeling awful my first few months of pregnancy. I had nausea and vomiting and lack of energy. I am feeling much better now at 17 weeks and wanted to share with you all that I am expecting now that I have told my family, friends, and work. Our due date is December 4th and we will find out the gender in a couple of weeks. It is an exciting time for my husband and I and our families as we prepare to welcome a little one into our lives. It still seems so surreal to me at times. I have heard the baby's heartbeat that was so exciting and seeing the baby moving on the ultrasounds was so amazing to see. I have wanted to try for a baby for a long time. We postponed our wedding multiple times due to Covid-19 from 2020 to September 2021. We were so happy to have a lovely wedding last fall and finally get married. We always planned to start trying after we got married. We started trying right at the start of the new year with a couple cycles and then on third cycle we saw the positive tests below and it was very exciting. 



I have been taking bump photos since about 14 weeks. There wasn't a lot of change at that point. This is me at 16 weeks I am now 17 weeks along and almost 18 weeks.  I am sure I will pop more around 20 weeks.


Millie and I, she is still not so sure about being a big sister :P 

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I am happy to share the news in this space. Hope that you have a great weekend!

Finished Rock Cap, Next Project, and Reading On

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. It has been a long time since I posted last! I missed this space. I am happy to be back to share that I have finished knitting the Rock Cap by Veronica Wilson on Ravelry. This was a fun knit. I liked knitting it while just relaxing watching a show or movie. It is too warm now to wear it now... lol in the Summer, but I look forward to wearing it in the Fall and Winter months. 






Pattern notes:

Pattern: Rock Cap by Veronica Wilson on Ravelry

Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease solids in colorway Canyon Sunset

Needles: US 8, 5 mm circular needles

Notes: Please see my notes on Ravelry here


I will be knitting socks next! It has been a long time since I have knitted socks. They are always a fun knitting project for the Summer because they are so easy to bring around on vacation with you as they are a small project easy to transport. 


I will be starting to read Wow, No Thank you by Samantha Irby. I bought this one awhile ago, then didn't continue reading it. I look forward to reading this book and it will be something light and funny to read this Summer.
