Fabric, fabric, FABRIC!!!!

Jason and I just got back from a super fun weekend in Houston. We spent some good quality time with family and ate some dang good Texas barbeque. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera, which is a first for me, so I don't have a whole lot of pictures to document it. Sad. :(
Besides being with family, one of the best parts of the trip was when Crystal took me to this little hole-in-the-wall quilt shop. I literally almost passed out when I went inside due to sheer joy! There were bolts and bolts of gorgeous fabric. And oh! the pre-cuts! I was in heaven. Just when I thought my happiness couldn't get any greater, we came across a honey bun of Soiree!!!! AHHHHH!!!! I just about peed in my pants from excitement. And it was even on sale! I snatched that up as well as a turnover of Sorbet and a charm pack of Spirit. Crystal also had given me a charm pack of Central park  just for coming to visit. :) Gosh, I love beautiful fabric.
Now to decide what to make with each one.... Let the sewing begin!

Gone Swimmin'!

Rain, rain go away....but if you stay, that's ok! Because Claire and I had a blast at our gym's indoor pool today! I met up with my friend Elena, who also happens to be a swim instructor. She showed me some fun things I can do with Claire in the pool right now to get her excited about being in the water, like splashing, kicking and putting her head back in the water. Claire was pretty apprehensive at first, but she warmed up to it. She did a great job too when her ears were put in the water--she didn't get upset at all.
But Claire really enjoyed herself when we took her to the big hot tub ( which was not on, so not as hot). I think she preferred the really really warm water over the lukewarm pool water. Definitely Jason's child. She loved it!
There isn't a whole lot you can do with a 4 month old in a pool, but the more we go, hopefully the more she will grow accustomed to the water and getting ready to learn how to swim!
