Finally some stitching

Would you believe that I'm actually doing some stitching? Before Ava was born, I told Emily that I would stitch a birth announcement for her. Well, one thing led to another and after she was born I just never got around to it. Last week I got it traced and backed and started stitching! I have a ways to go, but her birthday isn't for three weeks so that gives me lots of time, right? lol

This morning Ava and I had some errands to run. I got dressed then got her dressed. As we were getting ready to leave, I suddenly realized our outfits matched! She was wearing plaid and I was wearing stripes, but the colors were all the same. I couldn't have planned it better if I had tried! lol

A Glowing Good Time

Every year I go to a nearby balloon festival to watch the balloons fly. This year they had a contest to win tickets to the balloon glow they do in the evenings, and I won! So Saturday night I headed out and had the best time. The balloons were literally only 10 feet in front of me, and it was so great to sit there and relax and watch them inflate and then glow once it got dark. The colors were just amazing! I hope I get the chance to do it again next year. :0)
