Hiatus Explained

So my sudden and abrupt hiatus is KINDA coming to an end, I think. We have had a whirlwind of the last 6 months and I haven't had much time for crafting and such. The list of happenings include:
1.) I found out I was pregnant and was sick as a DOG the first 14 weeks. I seriously thought this thing was trying to KILL me. I was soso sick! So I would come home from work and crumple onto the couch until the sweet release of bedtime before it was time to wake up and puke my guts out all over again.

2.) Hubby graduated from the Marriott School of Business with his Masters in Public Administration at BYU. SOOOOOO proud of him, and SOOOO glad we are done with school!

3.) Two days after graduation we packed up a truck and 2 cars to the gills and moved across the country in 2 parts. We dropped off everything we wouldn't need for 6 weeks and all our furniture off at a storage unit in Wichita, KS, as well as my younger sister in Springfield, MO for the summer. Then we headed for Columbia, SC.

4.) Once we got to SC for 6 weeks of summer sales they didn't have the apartment ready for us like we'd thought. So we got to live in a hotel for 4 days. Then we finally got moved in for 6 weeks.

5.) The middle of June we packed up our bare bones home in SC and headed BACK across the country to Wichita, KS.

6.) We moved into our apartment in Wichita and got settled.

7.) Hubby started his new job, a Fellowship with the City of Wichita in the City Manager's office. I've been unpacking, getting settled, getting things slowly ready and acquired for baby and took a few trips to see my family, since they are so close now.

Whew! Busy, busy summer. Now that we are more settled and my nesting instinct is kicking in, I have some crafts to show for baby-prep as well as making our apartment our own. I have also been doing lots of cooking and baking since I have more time now than I ever have since we got married. Looking forward to being back and posting recipes and crafts! BTW, baby is due beginning of November so there will probably be another hiatus at that time. But for now, I'm gonna make the most of it.
