May Recap!

I can’t believe May is already over! This year is flying by! I did not get to blog as much during May as I would have liked, so I thought I’d do a little recap of what I did and some of my favorite things this month.

Watching: Vikings. I LOVE this show! Most of my family history comes from Scandinavia and I’m pretty sure we have viking ancestors. I just finished season 1 on Amazon and have not stopped thinking about it. Unfortunately, season 2 is not available on Amazon Prime yet, so I’m trying to find another way to watch it. They just look so cool!VikingsPictureReading: I just finished the Maze Runner series. I read the first one a few months ago and just got around to finishing the series. It’s another dystopian series like Hunger Games and Divergent and is also getting made in to a movie pretty soon. I enjoyed it for the most part.  The second book was kind of slow for me, but it definitely picked back up in the third.

Listening: This past month I’ve been listening to a lot of Langhorne Slim. He seems like such an interesting man, but I think he’s awesome and I’d love to see his show someday. This one is one of my favorites!

Loving: Disney and Epcot trips with my family. We’ve been to Disney an unusual amount this year. We usually only go once a year, but we’ve already gone 3 times. We took one trip to Epcot a few weeks ago, and then last weekend we went with my cousin and her kids. I LOVE my little cousins and it was so much fun to go with themIMG_4469

We love our Mickey Bars!

Over the past couple months I have made a little bit of progress on the blankets I have been working on. I really, really love them and cannot wait to finish them!

BlanketDSC_7865This blanket is definitely one of my favorites and I’m so close to being done! I made the mistake of not buying enough of the cream yarn at the beginning, and the yarn I bought recently to finish it doesn’t match quite right. So, I think I only have enough to make a couple more rows. It won’t be as big as I originally wanted, but I think I will still love it!

This chunky blanket is growing very slowly.  One skein of yarn only gets me a few rows, so I’ll be working on this one for a while! I think it will be a great blanket for the winter so I hope to have it done before it gets too cold. Lucky for me in Florida, that probably won’t happen until December!DSC_7859My newest project is a chevron baby blanket. Lately I have been loving this color combination. I think pink and navy are so pretty together, and I love the way this blanket is turning out! DSC_7868I found this pattern in one of my crochet books. I have quite a few crochet books that I like to look at, but I feel like I use patterns out of this one pretty often. The patterns are easy to follow, and I really like that they add charts for each one. If you’re looking for a kind of all-in-one book, I think this one is great, especially for beginners!DSC_7878.NEF

    We have booked our trip to Disney coming up in October. We have to fly down there, so we only get to go every other year. Always so exciting to look forward to the trip. Your blankets are looking amazing. I hate it when I don’t buy enough yarn But it looks like it is a pretty good size.

      Thank you! That’s awesome that you get to go to Disney in October! Luckily I live only a couple hours away so it’s not too hard to get down there!
