February Recap

March 7, 2012

February sure flew by in a hurry, and I clearly haven’t been taking many photos lately. Which is crazy, because we went to Boston a couple weeks ago. Who goes to Boston and doesn’t take pictures?? I do. It rained the whole time, so my camera was snug in my suitcase the whole time.

So, Boston. We went there for Admitted Students Welcome at Harvard Business School. Lots of speakers and social events and whatnot. It was really fun, and it was good to get an idea of what it’s all going to be like when we move. Yep, WHEN we move. Jordan sent in the deposit last week, so we are for sure moving to Boston at the end of the summer. Cuhh-razy!

Anyhow, I’m about to head to Midland and do an engagement session of a dear friend of mine, so that will be on the blog soon!

What else have we been up to? Well, I’ve actually been using my sewing machine a lot! I got it for last Christmas, and needless to say, it’s taken me a while to get acquainted with it :) You’ll see a lot of what I’ve been doing when Cooper’s first birthday rolls around. I’m afraid that until then, we’re most definitely in the unfinished stages of everything.

On a random note, Cooper’s friend, Benzing, came over with a sweet Valentine’s Day present. So of course we had to make them pose for a picture.


And on another random note, our roommate Chris had a birthday last week, so I made him this Collar Stay holder. One time I heard him say collar stays were the worst invention ever because he always loses them, so I got him what every 26-year-old male wants – a handmade gift!! Haha. I first saw this design when Allison made a crayon holder for Ella, and I followed this tutorial on it. I’m not the most patient sewer (orrrr seamstress?? haha), hence the crookedness, but it’ll get the job done!
