Baby blankie complete!

Awhile ago I pinned this baby blanket.
I love everything about it
especially that adorable little baby!
I found the book that had the pattern and got it from the library.

This was my first knitting project in 18 years
and it isn't perfect/ as amazing as the one pictured above.
I am not sure how they got their sheep so fluffy and perfect.

Here are some pictures of my baby's blanket:

Now I just need my baby to come so I can take adorable pictures of him with his sheep blankie :)
Come on out baby! We are ready to meet you!

New Orleans

On the way home from the Florida Friendcation Phil and I made our road trip even longer by adding a couple destinations. After exploring Apalachiacola and St. George Island State Park we stopped for a couple days in New Orleans. My parents have always loved New Orleans and I have always been a little skeptical of their rave reviews, but now I understand why they love it so much.

The courtyard of our hotel:

Seafood at the Acme Oyster House
I was in heaven

I love that people put so much work into decorating their balconies

 Beignets at Cafe du Mond

so yummy and inexpensive! Dallas needs a Cafe du Mond

 Jackson square

exploring the above ground cemetery
so eery!

Shrimp poboy sandwich

the street our hotel was on
so incredibly charming

We had a blast exploring the French Quarter. Thanks New Orleans for being so awesome!
