3, 2, 1....GO!!!! The Guest-athon has begun :D

Having one friend come over from far away and stay with you = PRICELESS
Having seven friends from far away alternate coming for a whole month straight = CRAZY?!!!

And that's where Troels and I are heading. A whole month of friends and family visiting us in our cosy little apartment.

Guests 1: Sarah and Elodie - August 31 to September 11
Guests 2: David and Alex - September 11 to Septemeber 26
Guest 3: Dani - September 26 to October 3rd
Guests 4: Jim & Nancy - October 3rd to October 6

Will Troels and Audrey survive the Guest-athon? Will they not? The bets are open!

Welcome to New York, Sarah and Elodie :) So happy you're here! And lucky you for being the first ones on the list! We had a little welcome party dinner on Monday with my friends Brittany (visiting from Boston - she's a harvard nerd) and Andrew.....oooooh lovely lovely tradition of making our guests drink shots of discusting danish alcohol. Nothing sets the mood like it :D

19 weeks

Oh how I love spending 17 dollars on my lunch food just like I did yesterday (don't ask me how much i got for it, I am ashamed of it).....and I wonder why my belly keeps growing the way it does - go figure! :D

First sewing projects!!!

So here is what I had in mind a few days ago: first make a pin cushion -because I really couldn't do anything without it! I used the fabric left over from when I shortened Troels' pants + some felt.

And then....these little baby boots :) Really happy about how they turned out! If we have a girl, I am keeping these for us - we're finding out on Wednesday so we'll know soon! If not - I'll send them to some of my friends who just had a baby girl.

My new baby :D

Received my very first sewing machine yesterday, plus some of the fabric that I bought.....oh I am SO excited! It's like getting a bag full of candy if you are a kid, at least for me! Already have an idea for a project for this weekend, and just can't wait to get started on it. I had been saving up for a few months to get this - so having it now is even sweeter. Watch out, all your fabric geeks out there :)

Sous le soleil exactement

It's been a veerrrrry short - and weird summer in New York. Either we had to deal with days and days of rain, or extremely hot days where the smallest thought about going to the overheated subway would give me nightmares at night. NOT fun to be pregnant in the summer in NYC, good thing that I am not quite a hippo yet :)

Rare opportunity today to go to the beach with some of Troels' clients, Lara and Allen. We found a nice beach - well, for that weekend it meant that we found something that was relatively not crowded. haaaaaaa new york beaches :) But really, lying in the sun by the water is just so nice and relaxing....I'll take whatever I can!
