Friday Evening

So I missed posting a Thoughts on Thursday yesterday.  I’ll go ahead and be honest and let you know that I took a nap while Peyton napped instead of typing a post.  Trust me – it was very needed.

So here I sit on a Friday evening.  We just laid Peyton down for bed and Forest is in the basement painting and grouting tile so he can install baseboards tomorrow and be D.O.N.E. [except for dusting everything and putting it all back in place which we’ll do tomorrow and he said his basement will be done for Mother’s Day – how sweet. ;)].

So here are a few thoughts from my week:

Pregnancy #2 Update

I haven’t posted a single update for this pregnancy and I feel really bad.  Not necessarily for any of you readers but mostly for our little one!  Who knows how long I’ll continue to blog but I don’t want this little baby to feel neglected when she reads through my blog to see several updates throughout Peyton’s pregnancy but only one – at 32 weeks! – of her pregnancy.  So this might be a lengthy post but stick with it!  If you’re interested. :)

Finished Quilt | From Gramma’s fabric

I came home from Indiana with my mom’s sewing machine and a bolt of Winnie the Pooh fabric at the beginning of February.  I spent a few hours one Saturday afternoon picking fabric to coordinate with the Winnie the Pooh fabric and started my journey to make a quilt for our baby girl coming in June.

I used this cute hipster baby quilt as my inspiration.  I like the more modern look with the large rectangles of fabric and the simple stitching.

Thoughts on Thursday | 03.30.2017

Saturday is April!  And although the saying is “April showers bring May flowers”, Mother Nature got a head start on the April showers.  Yesterday was sunny, though, and we took full advantage of being outside!

A grandpa at Tuesday’s story time at the library has the cutest grandson, he’s about 2 months younger than Peyton, and he knows all of his letters.  I was curious how he learned them all but was too shy to ask.  He must have been reading my mind, however, because he mentioned to me that he watches the tv show on PBS called Super Why!  I set our DVR to record a few episodes.  Peyton doesn’t get a lot of tv/screen time (even though she asks to watch a ‘mov’, aka movie, all the time) but there are some days that we do so we’ll try this show!

Thoughts on Thursday | 03.23.2017

Why is it only Thursday?  This week hasn’t been exceptionally busy for us but I feel like it should already be Friday!

A few thoughts for your Thursday, though, as we wait for the weekend:

This first one is two-fold, courtesy of Forest.  First, Yuengling doesn’t just make beer.  They also make ice cream.  And they have a BUTTERBEER flavor!  Which won’t mean very much unless you’re a Harry Potter fan.  They only sell it in select stores so I made a trip to one of those stores last night after dinner.  I did find Yuengling ice cream but they didn’t have butterbeer…. I picked up the peanut butter cup and cherry vanilla chunk and we’ll see how they are!
