Big news!

Things are so hectic here right now.  My aunt Debby and my friend Althea threw me a shower this weekend.  It was so lovely to see everyone together (my Dad even came to meet Marc’s parents for the first time – it was a coed shower.)  We are so, so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family, and I’m really touched by how happy everyone seems to be for us.  Althea bought Marc these:

Yes… LEGO shaped fruit snacks.  I know I’ve mentioned Marc’s LEGO hobby, but I’d like to point out the LEGO contributions to our upcoming wedding.

On the left: our wedding cake topper (although we are having cupcakes… same difference!) On the right is the groom’s cake topper.  The little guy looks so scared!

And the church in legos, a work in progress:

He built the church his sister was married in for her wedding, and it was a big hit.

And my big news is that I’ve been promoted at work and am now the director of the entire music program!  It’s really very exciting, and while it is a lot more work I am looking forward to building my own program.

We’ve also just sold my car (*sniff* farewell green bug!) and are looking for a new car.  Marc has a Volvo now, so we’re hoping to find a nice used Volvo and make it our only car later on, since Marc doesn’t really drive. So… many things going on now, but very little knitting!

I am planning some yarn purchases, as the knit nook is having their summer sale on my birthday in a few weeks.  Marc is going to buy me the yarn for the Vintage Pink Cardigan as my present, since I could not bring myself to buy the Blue Sky Alpaca silk myself.

  1. That lego stuff is so cute. I suppose you guys already own “The Brick Testament” (it’s excerpts of the Old Testament reinacted in legos).

    Congrats on your promotion!

  2. I made the VPC and the lacy buttonband is phenomenally gorgeous! However, unless you are a rectangle, you need to add some shaping to it (as I do for all of Norah’s designs).
    Those cake toppers are absolutely unique!

  3. Congratulations on everything! When it rains, it pours. I LOVE the legos! I have two Lego-obsessed sons, so I have spent hundreds–maybe thousands–of hours as building assistant. I think your cake-toppers top them all.

  4. Love the legos! As long as you are not being forced to honeymoon at Legoland, the cake toppers take the cake (sorry, couldn’t resist!)

    Congrats on the promotion 🙂
