Bump watch 2014 has been in full force. I'm enjoying this pregnancy. Yes, I'm exhausted all the time and I have wicked heartburn, but I have no complaints.
Mike started another new job in the last few weeks. It happened to be right when my mom and stepdad were about to leave to go back to Illinois. So what's a girl to do when her Hubs is going to be busy all week? Take advantage of help and head on back for a visit! It's was entirely last minute so not much planning went into it.
We didn't get to see as many people as we wanted, but still enjoyed out visit. I promise next time we come up, it will be planned and I will get to see everyone!
So we drove about 15-16 hours there to Illinois and the same back.
But Cousins were reunited..
Fun was had...
And I enjoyed some peace and quiet.
And this little girl and I had our first road trip together! :)
A few recent pictures...
She's such a little girl now, I can barely take it! She's talking so much and loves to tell us stories and sing songs. She doesn't care much for talking about her baby brother yet, but I know she loves him and will love him even more when she sees him.
So with Mike working so much, I've been spending a lot of time getting back into crocheting. I did quite a bit before we moved and now that I have a spot where I can store stuff, I've been happily crocheting away making all sorts of fun things for the fall.
After several people asking me if I planned on selling any of my items, I'm happy to say that I will be soon. In a few weeks, I plan on launching an Etsy shop with everything I've made. That means I have a long couple weeks ahead of myself.
It's a huge step for me to do something like this. Normally, when I enjoy something I don't want to turn it into work, but if I'm already doing it, why not make some money while I'm at it ;)
My outlook is that if it completely flops, no harm done, I'm still doing something I love to do and I just added a ton of new things to my wardrobe that I'm in love with.
I'm focusing more on trendy items like scarves, boot cuffs, hats, and headbands, vs. blankets or several baby items. I find it much more enjoyable if I make stuff I can actually see myself wearing.
Until the next time I decide to update.
