just chilling

I love this picture. This window is in between the foyer and living room and it faces a brick wall. I normally keep the shade down for that reason but had the window opened earlier and I guess I forgot to draw it. When I was making dinner, Bowie started screaming and yelling. A black cat was sitting on the wall just chilling and Bowie was SO UPSET! I'll probably keep it closed from now on.

a short attention span

I love this Wampa rug. It was a wedding gift from my friend Sarah. We love it too much to put it on the floor and Jason wants to hang it on the wall with crossed light sabers. The latter is probably not going to happen. It's a little too geeky, even for me. So for now we just drape it over our sectionals.

We thought Bowie might be afraid of it but she hasn't seemed to mind. I came downstairs and found her napping like this. I guess she's not afraid because she hasn't seen The Empire Strikes Back. And that shouldn't reflect on us as her parents either-- she has a short attention span.

Jay's birthday

Here's the cake I made for Jay's birthday. It's supposed to be a boulder. Get it? A flaming boulder I guess. I went for "happy birthday" letters instead of regular candles because that many candles would probably make him feel old. It's not even that many. We're in the prime of our lives!

It was a fun night. It was a surprise party actually. He expected a married couple we know to swing by at some point, so he was pretty taken aback when 20 people showed up. Good stuff.

Holy cows and new beginnings.

I bought this shirt during the summer and finally hung it in the closet of what we're designating as an eventual nursery.

It's a new year. We have a new life. Holy cows and new beginnings.

We moved into a new house about a week before Christmas/Hanukkah. We actually live right around the corner from my mom/childhood home. It has been hectic and I am reacquainting myself with my old pals, the internet and this blog.

Our house is mostly set up except that we threw a bunch of stuff in the baby room to be dealt with at a later date. Not pregnant yet. We finally just got the green light to begin and so, well, we have. I'm excited to impose mine and Jason's likes on first a nursery and then a living breathing person... ie, Star Wars nursery, duh.

More next time.
