One thing I'll be doing is going through all of our stuff. We're planning on having a yard sale, probably sometime in October. We're putting most of our things in storage while I'm in Georgia, and I want to get rid of a much as possible so we have less to move...so it's time to tackle the closets, drawers, and the catch-all table in our office. This is probably the task I'm looking forward to the least, but I know I'll be glad I did it.
Next, I'm going to be planning a certain little boy's 1st birthday party! I'm super excited about this! Josh and I started brainstorming ideas this past weekend and came up with some great stuff. I think it's gonna be an awesome party...but I'm not giving away any spoilers :}
Finally, I have several sewing projects in the works. The first is an easy pot holder...I had to read the directions about 18 times and finally had to ask my friend Kristy if I could see a picture of some she made so I could figure out how to make them! I'm a visual learner. But yesterday it clicked! I figured it out and I'm pretty proud of myself. I think they're going to be really fun to make...and uper easy now that it makes sense! I'll post pictures of mine when they're finished, but here's how Kristy's turned out:
I'm also planning on making the new baby a flannel blanket (we don't have any names for "new baby" yet...we'll let you know!). I'm using a pattern from Do It Yourself Divas. I'm hoping it will turn out as cute as this:
And my most ambitious project is an ACU diaper bag made out of one of Josh's old uniforms. I couldn't find an example of an ACU bag that I liked, so here's the pattern I'm going to base it on from Sew, Mama, Sew :
Oh yeah...and there's the Olympics! Go Team USA (and have fun in London...I'm only slightly jealous)!
Wish me luck!!
P.S. Happy 10 months to my sweet boy :}
