I wish we could have been up there to celebrate with you (although it sounded like you worked the whole weekend! BAH!) but I hope you had a great one and made good wishes. I'm making you something that likely won't be as cool as whatever you buy from the Gap (btw, this, this in black, and these are awesome, it's a good thing I'm not there to go shopping with you...) but at least it won't be a gay tool belt. Happy Birthday!

I already bought a couple replacement necklaces to make up for the jewelry that was stolen in the burglary but I can't help but keep looking! There is so much gorgeous stuff out there. These are my favorites:

Jeff and I don't really celebrate Valentine's day but we had a really sweet holiday this year. I got my favorite flowers, we went to our favorite restaurant (Pizza Paul's) with our good friends, and we partied it up at the Love Art Show in LA that Jeff and a bunch of his Art Center friends were a part of. Jana even made a unicorn cake for the show! It was amazing, and had a chocolate butterfinger filling. Soooo yummy, albeit creepy. I was horrible with my camera unfortunately but her blog will probably have a picture of it soon. Here are my flowers!
And here's the mock-up of what it should sort of look like when I'm done. I tried to get Lily Mae to sit in the middle of the circle so I could take a picture but she was under the bed, exactly in the middle so I couldn't reach her to drag her out. Of course, 5 minutes after I picked up the pieces, I come back and see this:

Our friends Kelsey and Jake are getting married in May at the San Diego Botanic Gardens and Mandy and I are doing their flowers! We went to the Gardens this Saturday to get an idea of what we have to work with, and the place is gorrrrgeous. Succulents and cacti and fruit trees everywhere. I snapped a bunch of pictures to help inspire Jeff and I when we start landscaping our future house.
After the Gardens we went to Jake's parent's house and saw the cutest and tiniest little neighbor chihuahua! She was adorable, I wanted to steal her.
We wrapped up our San Diego adventure with a visit to the Stone brewery which was awesome. We had some good bevvies and enjoyed the sunshine in the beer garden, it would have been perfect except Jeffy wasn't there. Guess we'll just have to go again!!

It was Seth's birthday on the 8th so Mandy threw him a birthday party on Friday at their house. It was a super fun party, a lot of friends showed up, many treats were had, and we watched a bit of the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Crum had a spaz attack when Jeff and I got there and tore around the house which was kind of my highlight. I love that puppy. Pictures!

I can't believe it took me this long to make Mary, Michael, and Nicholas' x-mas gifts, but when your sewing room is covered with home loan application papers and stacks of rejected offers, you lose the sewing zeal. I power cleaned last weekend though and got to finishing these up.
Mary got a sassy purse made with my happy IKEA fabrics (yup, same purse pattern. I really have to try something new soon):
And Michael got a tool belt! As I was digging through my stacks of fabrics for these projects, I realized that almost all of my stash is of girly fabric. What could I possibly use for a manly tool belt? And then I remembered my construction worker fabric. What could be more manly than construction workers?? I also cut up an old pair of Jeff's jeans to use the denim for the rest of the tool belt. Always thinking though, I was able to salvage the top of the jeans to make cut-off shorts so now Michael will have a pair of construction shorts that match his tool belt! Jeff was again all-too-willing to model my sewing projects:
