Getting Close!

We're 36 weeks pregnant and expecting some little babies any day now! I haven't been to my sewing table in a disgustingly long time, because I had to move and put away everything in order to get our carpets cleaned, and I haven't gotten back into the swing of things!

My birthday was on the 21st of this month, and Ben strictly shopped for sewing stuff for me! I finally have a thread caddy now, which is great because it means my spools of thread won't be thrown in my misc. basket any longer! He also bought me pinking shears (which has long been a request of mine, and I am soo glad he remembered!) and assorted buttons. He also got me a pretty large assortment of thread colors, so I won't have to run to the store at the last minute as often due to the wrong thread color :P

On top of all these things, he got me a $20 gift card for Joann's, which means I can get more fabric if I want (uh oh!) sometime soon! :)

And for my birthday, my dad so kindly reminded me of those work pants of his that I promised to sew up! He's a deputy sheriff, and he only has two pair of pants - one of which I just stitched the seam on a few weeks ago, and the other of which needs stitched in the EXACT SAME PLACE! It's quite an easy fix, if only I can manage to get myself sat down at the sewing table. I'm sure once I do, I won't get up very easily! You know how it is - I'll probably get in the middle of a project and go into labor and tell everyone to WAIT! I'm not done sewing this yet... Haha!

Hope everyone is doing well, I will try to keep you updated and I'll post pictures of the couple things I HAVE accomplished lately, if I can just get motivated!

So Busy!

I'm sure everyone thinks I had the babies or something by now, since I haven't updated in so long! No babies yet - we're looking at about another month. Last weekend was my future step-daughter's 8th birthday, so the future in-laws were here. And there's been a lot of baby planning. We still have to put a shelf up, and get a door built. And get the floors cleaned. And we have a month pretty much. AHH! This weekend was obviously the 4th of July weekend, and my brother's birthday is today and he turns 25. And I've been taking it easy. I haven't sat at my sewing machine in a week and a half. WHOOPS! We'll just say I'm on a mini-vacation! Hopefully I'll get back to business soon!

In great news, I am reeeeally excited, because Ben and I just bought a 12' chest freezer yesterday. We've been stuck with the freezer space that comes with one of the vertical side-by-side fridge/freezer set-ups. It's really small in space, and we don't even have room to stock up on meats for dinner, really, let alone buy frozen pizzas for a pinch and things like that. So we finally made an investment that we've talked about for a long time and got the freezer! :)

I must be growing up - the most exciting news for me right now is babies coming soon and a new chest freezer.
