April has been a month full of friends and sun. I really needed both so I feel refreshed and rejuvenated and ready for May and all it holds. The last two weeks have been exciting. First Ben and I have been researching Virginia and deciding weather to buy or rent. It is always fun to think "Where in the world will we go next?".
Last weekend I had my good friend Viv come to visit. It was so nice to show her Seattle and just catch up. She lucked on the weather and got to see the city at its best. I have a picture of us at the UW.
Ben was away that weekend taking his Professional Engineering test. It was an 8 hour test he has been studying for since January. We are both relieved to have that out of the way. He got back in time to spend some time with Viv too. I was living with Viv when Ben and I first started dating so it brought back good memories.
This last weekend was all about Jessi's baby shower. I spent Friday and Saturday shopping and baking. It turned out well and nearly everyone we invited could come. She got lots of great stuff and I learned some great new recipes. One I even made up which everyone liked so maybe I have a new career in front of me:). These adorable little shoes belong to the little boy Jessi nannies for. He was the inspiration for part of the shower and happily modeled his shoes for me. I do think he thought I was a little odd taking shot after shot of his feet.
That is it for April. I hope to be finishing a book in May so maybe I'll have some posts about that.
