I got new Kicks!, originally uploaded by hobocampcrafts.

Today I am 11 weeks pregnant. The last 3 days I felt pretty darn good! I'm hoping that in just 1 week I'll be feeling much better. Last night I was finally able to finish a few projects on my sewing machine and maybe take a few shots today. I've done a good amount of applique work on recycled and new t-shirts for kids and adults- as well as finish up a cute tote bag I had designed months ago and never quite finished.

My husband is starting a new job tomorrow in NYC- luckily he can wear jeans to work- so we stopped by TJ Maxx got him a few pair and then I found the beauties you see here. Cotton- seersucker Converse! I haven't had a low pair of chucks in years! So I was really excited to find these. I've been looking for a cute pair of about towner shoes.. and now I've got them!

This morning we all gathered at my brother's house for Mother's Day. He over cooked as usual! Bagels, cheese, crackers, waffles, eggs, potato pancakes and a bunch more. My mom even brought a coconut cream pie- which was a little on the sweet side but super delicious! My sister gave me an adorable maternity dress- which if it fits will be worn at her graduation next weekend. We left bellies full and now Z is taking a cat nap and I'm catching up on taped Degrassi Jr. High The New Generation. I grew up watching this dang show and I still love it! So I was happy to find a block on Sundays when the latest shows air.

A little good news- we got the apartment we looked at the other day. I'm super excited! It will be nice to have all of the things we've been going with out. The things I am referring to are 1- a bath tub rather than a small shower ( a preggo needs to get her bath on!) 2- room to set up our kitchen table ( sitting on a couch to eat dinner is not my idea of dinner) 3- more than 4 windows of light and so on. Our move isn't till June 15th- but we still have tons of packing. Now it will be that much MORE difficult b/c I can't really lift boxes, spackle or paint- so I'm already feeling a bit useless. But alas I'll work something out.

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day & a great week~

It sounds like you were living in me and my boyfriend's first apartment (no bathtub, no dining area, TINY!!!) I'm so happy you found a new place and I hope it is much more comfortable for the both of you. :)
