1) Since my last post was about our bun in the oven, I should tell you that bun is a girl! I am now 23 weeks and thankfully feeling much better than I was early in the pregnancy. Not a day goes by that I'm not very aware that I am growing a very tiny person inside of me, which is both awesome and totally weird. I am getting very excited to meet this tiny person in several months.

2) I honestly haven't baked a single thing since April. It's crazy, I know! For a while it was because I was feeling so horrible with the pregnancy. But now, it's more because of a lack of motivation. Part of that is because I don't have my own kitchen. We are still living with my husband's family and though I am extremely grateful for the rent free living situation, things are just different for me when I don't have my own space. I love baking but it's just not as much fun in a kitchen that's not my own. My lack of baking will change soon as my husband has asked for key lime cake for his birthday in a couple of weeks!
3) With all that being said, the reason we are still living with my husband's family is because we have been saving and hoping to buy a house. The good news is that we found a house we like and are now under contract on that house! Hopefully all goes as planned and we will be in our own house mid-October which means there is still time to do some fall baking in my own kitchen!! I can't tell you how excited I am!
4) I always like having a creative outlet in my life. Baking has been that outlet but since I haven't been baking I've been feeling the need to create. So instead I've been knitting a lot. In the past few years, the only thing that I've knitted are dishcloths here and there to keep my mom and I supplied with the kind we like. With the baby coming, I thought it might be fun to try to knit a little hat. I found an awesome book with patterns at Michaels and have been knitting up a storm. So far I've made two hats and have slowed down a little with the third (mostly because I have now had to start over twice!).

And those are my thoughts at the moment. Maybe next time I won't wait months before the next post... but don't hold your breath.
