I stole this idea from a book I saw in a fabric store. I thought it was just too ridiculously adorable not to try. This would make such a cute baby shower gift!

I love the look of embroidery, and I wanted to try to teach myself how to do it.

This is my first attempt. It's far from perfect, but I think it turned out pretty cute.

See how much Lucy likes it?

Pig Tails

I've been looking forward to this for SO LONG! I love how Lucy looks in pigtails. She hates having them put in, but can you blame me for wanting to do her hair like this?

Perfect Purse Pattern

... okay, so maybe it's not quite perfect, but it's SUPER great. I found this purse pattern here, and I'm so glad I did! Here's what I made:

I think I'll make another!

Back on Solid Ground

We had a wonderful time on our seven day cruise to the Mexican Riviera. This vacation was given to us as a gift, and we are SOOOOO thankful! We had a great time with Dave's family, and now I'm sad that no one comes to my house to make my bed twice a day.

Here's our ridiculously large ship.

Here's the beautiful banquet hall where we ate a three-course meal every evening.

Now for some crazy cute photos of Lucy...

Having a balcony was SO wonderful.

Lucy loved to play on it and watch the world go by.

We bought Lucy a sweet little dress in Cabo.

I was planning to get tan... apparently I forgot that taking care of a one-year-old doesn't normally involve basking lazily in the sun. So, I'm still fair-skinned but happy.
