I took a little break from everything last week and it felt good. Last week there was so much that happened so I felt like sharing a little life recap.
Wednesday was my husband’s birthday and I took him to a Nationals baseball game. He’s a New Yorker (hello, Brooklyn) and is definitely a Yankees fan but he also roots for the home team. And he really roots for the home team when they’re playing against the Mets. I’m not a big baseball fan but I’m always happy to sit at the stadium on a gorgeous night with my husband and my best friend Jess came for her first Nats game too.
Friday was Cher’s 12th birthday and I happened to take the day off and got to spend it with her. Of course I tortured her with an official birthday portrait but she got lots of belly rubs, extra walks so she could sniff the entire neighborhood and I even found doggy cannoli for her special day.
Is my dog spoiled? You betcha! Saturday was spent having lunch and hanging out with a friend who currently lives in Brazil. And since my husband recently upgraded me to an iPhone…I bought an Apple Watch. And I spent my evening finishing off the rest of my Lipstick cardigan (pics to come once I take pictures in it).
Sunday morning I got to spend a little time snuggling with Cher and finishing off the neckband of my cardigan before we headed to church. We officially became godparents to our friend’s baby girl.
She’s in the adorable chubby baby stage with all kinds of baby rolls all over the place. She’s so calm and sweet. And we spent the afternoon with their family and our friends celebrating her baptism.
And since my sweater was finished, I started another the Rain Outside shawl on Sunday night and worked up to the halfway point by Monday. I really love this pattern and see myself making this up quite often. In addition to knitting I’ve been getting ready for a GRE prep course I start tonight. I’ve decided I want to apply for a PhD program and hopefully go back to school full time next year (fingers crossed I get accepted into the program). Nothing makes me feel as old (or a little dumb) as doing math practice tests but hey, this is why I’m paying to take a prep course. I’m smart enough to know that I’m a bit rusty! This last week has flown by but it was filled with good things, so I cannot complain.
What’s been happening with you?
