My 2nd sewing lesson

I've been meaning to take a picture of these place mats since Christmas and now I finally did. Tyler's mom made me some table runners for our small little table and she had some extra fabric left over of this particular one(Which is great because it is my favorite!) so she taught me how to make the place mats to match! They were super easy, even for me. It was a fun project. The table runner she made is at the very bottom. Our table is VERY short so that is why the runner is so short, in case you were wondering. :)

The picture would only post sideways or upside down, so I chose the upside down one. Sorry it's at a weird angle.

The weather has been soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo nice lately! In the 70's and today I'm sure it reached the 80's. We've been having fun going on runs, the park, the zoo, and hanging out with friends. I love winters in Texas! I need to enjoy this weather as long as I can before it turns really hot and humid. Then I'll be complaining about it I'm sure!

I've been running 3-4 times a week while pushing Austin in the stroller in the neighborhood where we live. There are a couple ginormous hills that get me a great leg and calf workout, and plenty of small hills that are more enjoyable. So I run on the flats, downhills, and some of the smaller uphills, and walk up the big uphills. I'm so happy I've been able to make it this far into the pregnancy and still be running. I feel like I could still run for a long time. AND I've only gained 8-10 pounds so far, which I think is good for me comparing to last time.

  1. Good work on the sewing! Really cute

    Yay for us and running!! I wonder when we'll not be able to anymore... Hopefully not for a while cuz like you said it's been helping with weight gain for me too - I've gained the same as you up to this point! Go us!
