I volunteered to make my friend Genevieve a baby blanket for the little girl she’s expecting (nicknamed gandersbaby), and she happened upon the perfect pattern! I’ve been searching for a pattern like this for ages, so it was fate! It’s a fun crochet, but Severus complicates things.

Severus is 10 months old and sometimes pretends to be an adult cat, but he’s not. Especially when he catches a glimpse of of the bag he knows I’ve been storing yarn in.

This weekend my lovely friend Victoria, who I call Tilly, came to visit! We were best friends in high school, first united by our love for Harry Potter and then Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, The Strokes, and foreign films. Tilly and I are so similar. I’m pretty confident that we’re soulmates.

Although we hadn’t spent more than a couple hours at a time together in over seven years, it was completely natural being in the same house together for three days. I’m so sad she’s back home. It’s hard living far from friends, especially friends who wear the same size and have such great wardrobes.

We got brunch at one of my favorite places in Fort Worth on Saturday – AF+B. They always have wonderful cocktails and the most delicious pastries and scotch eggs.

Introducing our new kitty–Severus! We are finally a two-cat (plus one dog plus one turtle) household! I think Severus is just about the cutest kitten I’ve ever seen. Seriously, look at that face! He also has the longest tail in the world. We brought him home yesterday, and he’s already proved himself to be super cuddly and playful. I’m so excited to see Severus and Leonardo grow up to become old men together :)

I’m currently getting ready for a trip to San Francisco (!!) for my dear friend Genevieve’s wedding (!!!), and I found my backup memory card with tons of pictures yet to be uploaded!

My parents, sister, and niece came to visit over spring break, and it seems Tori and Avery had fun with my camera while my parents and I were out one day. They took some really wonderful photos! I remember my sister mentioning they played with my camera, and I remember promising I would upload the photos for her, but it completely slipped my mind. It was a nice surprise to find (and a nice distraction from packing and getting the house ready to leave).
