What a great morning... I have a new coffee mug, the window open to the rain, and my books spread out just waiting to be read.
But! I wanted to put my homework on hold, in order to tell you a couple things...
First, MATT passed his CFP EXAM!
You might remember me talking about his ridiculous course load, or all the studying he was doing over the year, and how he was a complete study zombie before the exam last July... well, we finally heard and he passed his FIRST time around.
There was only a 50% pass rate, and the rate was MUCH lower for first-time test takers... but he still passed. Because he's amazing.
We actually found out about a week ago, but I've been spending time thinking of something special to do for him to help us celebrate...
I have one idea, but can't really tell you yet because he's been known to poke around here some... but it's pretty silly, so if I end up doing it I'll let you know :)
But congratulations, Matt! I knew you could do it! I'm so very, very proud of you and feel very lucky to be your girlfriend, because I know I'm going to get to see you do more amazing things in the future!!
I promised :)
I am currently knitting a cuuute little baby blanket, pattern on ravelry: Savannah's blankie by Amy-lynne Mitchell.
Below: Amy-lynne's picture of the blanket:
And then my progress so far...
I'm using the Mission Falls %100 cotton, which is so soft and nice to knit with! Small skeins... but makes it easier to carry the project around :)
I know what you're thinking... my step-mom is pregnant with TWINS. Shouldn't I be making two of these?
Yes, Yes... but this one isn't for Maranna, it's for my friend and former co-worker Lori, whose fiancie's sister-in-law is preggers as well.
So here's a preview, Lori! Hope you like it so far!
As for the twins...
My step-mom and the babies are doing great, aaaaannnnnddd her BABY SHOWER is this Saturday!
So I'll be back with lots of fun pictures of baby things that make us all go "awwwww."
Plus, I got her the CUTEST baby shower gifts... but can't share just yet. Promise to show, though!
Also... I'm going to try and bake something new and yummy in the loaf pan that Peggy gifted me to celebrate our first day back in school. Can't wait to show you that, either!!!
But for now, back to coffee and homework...
