Aviator Hats

So a couple days before our road trip home I bought some crochet patterns from Inner Hooker. I was all excited, But I’ve done this before. This time thought I actually sat down and went through a whole online Crochet school at CraftyMinx. So on our second day of 10 hour driving, I brought out the yarn and by the time we hit the border I had finished Sawyers Aviator Bomber Hat. Needless to say I was excited I had actually managed to make it. My other crochet experiments have always failed. But this was a new start.

So I thought about it (for about 5 seconds) and decided I had to make all the boys hats. We are all together only once a year so when else are you gonna get a chance like that. It took all week and I ended up with one for me when I accidentally strayed from the pattern late at night and made one WAY too big. I love them. I love that we got a picture of them all together.

I also bought the Owl and Monkey ear patterns. Im excited to try them too. And I will post them when I get around to it!

Here We Go

I said that title in my head with the Mario 64 voice as I wrote it. And then I sang “Here we go again on our own” (my graduation song.) And now I’m just thinking how many ways that title applies to my life.

Here we go: Another year. Goodbye 2011 Hello 2012

Here we go: I am leaving in less than a week for my best friends wedding next weekend. After only getting home last night!

Here we go: Setting goals about this year, will we actually follow them?

Here we go: My baby’s first year! A whole year of firsts ahead of us, very exciting.

And lastly Here we go: I’m going to do it this year. I am going to do project life. I have watched Ali Edwards create an amazing document of their life this last year and I want it too. I ordered it last night, missed the collection I wanted by minutes, MINUTES! Ugh and I was going to order it the night before. That kills me. But whatever. I am still excited to do this. I CAN DO THIS! I cant wait to share it with you too. If you are curious about Project Life check out the link. Maybe you want to do it too! I ordered the¬†Clementine kit. (I wanted the Turquoise but its sold out. If it comes back I will still get it though, just in case.) Google Project life for more inspiration, or better yet Pinterest it!

O ya one last Here we go. Its one of my resolutions to blog more again. So Here we go with the first post of the new year! Here’s a couple highlights of the holidays!

It was a great first Christmas with Sawyer and were really looking forward to this new year. Make you you keep following us!
