Monday Mish-Mash

Today's post is gonna be crazy, so hang on!

We lost the Internet at the house until the 23rd... Grr! So obviously I didn't blog a lot last week. I also couldn't track through the Weight Watchers site, so I had a four-day period when I was pretty much off-plan, the first time I've been off plan in more than ten weeks. It definitely showed in the scale this Sunday. My first gain (even though it was slight). :( In a way, though, I'm glad this happened. It was motivating in a way, and definitely confirmed to me that I'm on the right path. I'm completely back on plan now and looking forward to a good week.

We had a baby shower for my Aunt Leslie, Uncle Mike, and new cousin Kathryn Rose Rene! This was my first time meeting Kat, but she was every bit as cute as I'd thought she'd be
There was only the slightest bit of fighting over the baby. Most of the time my grandma won. :)

We went all-out for this shower, hanging crepe streamers and balloons and everything. :) It was a ton of fun!

Aunt Leslie opens my gift... I spent a ton of time last week practicing/perfecting two new patterns, one for a cap and one for booties. The finished products were adorable, in my humble opinion!

Being modeled by one of Ruth's babies.

The finished products! Anna asked for a set for her hopechest when she saw these. I've finished the booties, in cream-colored organic cotton, and I'm currently about 2/3 of the way through the cap.

A few weeks ago on a weeknight, I came home and picked up the kids and we went up to the mall and the bookstore. While we were walking around we found some of my fav characters - Gru and a minion from Despicable Me! I forced the kids to pose with me even though they were slightly humiliated. :) Terrible picture of me, btw.

The kids have no clue yet how amazing this movie is... I can't wait for the release date - hope it's before Christmas!
I've already started my Christmas shopping... obviously can't post any further info, but know that I'm having fun. :) I usually make myself wait until after Christmas but this year I'm hoping to get a lot of it out of the way early.

She is a BEAUTIFUL baby! I just know I'm going to be one of those baby-every-year moms. Emi is turning 9 months this week and I'm SO wanting a tiny baby to cuddle! (However I know 3 pregnant people, so come May I can get my fix easily enough.)
