Whale Watching

There are SO many things we've done in the last couple months. Incessant traveling got me totally backed up on sharing our awesome adventures.

Life goal: Whale Watching - FULFILLED!

On memorial day we went whale watching with Sir Luke's Dad, Greg, his brother, Ben and Ben's lovely wifey Rebekah. I had SO much fun! They said there weren't a lot of whales to be seen but I begged to differ, granted this was my first adventure, so what do I know. I was super stoked that we saw any at all!

One of our more favorite things from the morning were watching the seals swim around and play at the aquarium there in the harbor. Rebekah said they looking like hot dogs with faces when they came towards uus! I couldn't stop laughing because she was totally right.

So this is the final product of my first real size quilt. I love how it turned out! My dad even loved it, he wanted to keep it. Love you dad, but this baby is mine! I used Amy Butler's Aspen Quilt Pattern.

I had some extra fabric so I made a little matching pillow. It's a little wild but I like it, and the pom poms don't hurt.

I promise, quilting isn't as hard as you might think. If you are thinking about it, give it a go!

Thanks for all the help Mom!

Neptune's Net

My friend Keri J and I get together whenever we can. She goes to school for spies in San Bernadino and obvs I live in the LV so it's not super often when we can spend time with each other. But when we do we always have a lot of fun.

This trip we had a lovely lunch in Malibu along the beach at Neptune's Net. If you have never been...GO! It's tasty tasty. I wasn't about to pass up some fried shrimp and ships, a-mazing.

There was also a fat little bird sitting a foot away from me waiting for a morsel of food. I wasn't about to fork over an ounce of my meal, even if he tried to look super pathetic.

 We also went to Malibu Yogurt for a treat and watched the final of the Ghana Uraguay game. The entire store was glued to the TV, especially the guy behind the counter. It was so intense!!

Love you Keri J!
