Quick Update

Just a quick update about what's going on around here.  First, thank you to my wonderful grandparents for these beautiful housewarming flowers:

I LOVE the polka dot pinwheel! 

Friday we went to a really cool biergarten in our neighborhood (we walked! Yay!) and hung out with some of our new neighbors for happy hour. It was a lot of fun, and cool to meet some new friends.  Afterward, we came home and made a really yummy dinner (chicken with bacon and feta and rice with red peppers and asparagus. Yum!) and did some more unpacking. This whole unpacking thing is losing its appeal... fast.

Saturday I went to the first meeting of the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild. Heather, who runs a blog called Olive and Ollie that you will definitely want to visit, organized the meeting.  Here's a sneak peak:

It was a lot of fun, and there will definitely be more exciting things to come from this group.  Funny story - my mom has a friend whose daughter lives in Cincinnati and is also a quilter and they've been trying to introduce us for years.  Guess who was sitting in front of me at the meeting, without even planning it?! Yep - Amy!  Our moms, needless to say, were thrilled at the way fate just threw us together...

More to come soon... my parents gave us a grill for a housewarming present that we're planning to inaugurate tonight, so more pictures coming soon!

Oh - and it's Opening Day in Cincinnati, with warm temperatures and sunny skies. Let's go Reds!
