My Husband Rocks!

Seriously, my husband is awesome! I know, I've already mentioned that before, but he truly is. He's such a great Dad, and he is so good at his job. He just got another raise and I'm so proud of him for that! I'm starting to get used to his awesomeness. For the most part. But there are still times he blows me out of the water. Last month when he crocheted this adorable blanket for his niece was one of those moments.

See what I mean?! As if that's not enough, this week he goes and does it again. Want to see the new toy he let me buy? OK, "let me" sounds a little bit like he might possibly be possessive of the money or something. No, we just never spend large wads of cash without each other's approval. More than helping us not to spend money, it helps us spend it wisely. There have been times that I've been telling him about what I want to get and realized as I'm telling him that it's not really what I want. Oh yeah, back to my new toy! (By the way, he got a new toy this week too. We have to be fair.)

This Baby Lock Ellure is my new sewing machine. It's upstairs right now waiting for me to come back to it. I've already made one project on it and started on the second. Something that will not be seen until I lose more weight. I made the wrong size. Wah!

Now for those of you who don't sew and have been considering buying a new machine. Don't just run out and buy this. I've been using your basic Brother machine for a few years now. It is a good little machine. It's just that I've done so much on it and it needed replacing. (It rocked as it chugged along and I had to re-thread the bobbin after every stitch!)

Well, enough writing about my husband. I'd rather go talk to him right now and tell him how awesome he is.
