it's a girl

When our very good friends, Pat and Laura (seen here, here and here), found out they were having a baby, we decided to throw them a fun gender reveal party. We had a big clam bake followed by a lovey cake with pink frosting on the inside to tell them they were having a girl. I was the only person who knew in advance (well, besides the baker!), and, trust me, I was mighty relieved when they found out and I didn't have to keep it quiet anymore. Such a fun day!

it was time

That time when Anders went from a mountain man to a respectable mountain man.
Thanks, Jess!

252 bottles of wine on the wall

Anders and I decided to glue wine corks to our wall because we thought they looked cool. And while we didn't actually drink all 252 bottles of wine that it took to make this wall (our favorite Italian shop, DeLaurenti, helped us out), we did put back a few in the process. 

Before and After!

Our favorite band, Widespread Panic, came to Seattle this week. Of course they rocked the house. We had a blast. See our other Panic adventures here and here.

(we had to have the Seahawks make an appearance, of course)

And here's their song "Airplane" to get you in the right mind.

We love this band!

quilt #2

Hey there! I finally made another quilt (see my first quilt here)! I'm pretty attached to it. Like my first quilt, this one also seems to have very bright colors, but I guess that's what I naturally gravitate towards. Oh, and, full disclosure, Maggie is not happy in this picture. I made her get up from a nap to take it. Ha.

kids at play

I had to go to Chicago for work last week, so I stayed to visit family, which was great because I got to see all 5 of my nieces and nephews from my side of the family. We took the kids to some crazy place filled entirely with blow-up slides and houses. They had a blast.

My Mom and Dad even got in on the action!

My friend, Nick, put his awesome Photoshop skills to good use and claimed we sent him a postcard while we were in Mexico. Ha. Nick is so funny. You can see his other Photoshop skills here.
