I’m back! Sorta? I didn’t actually go anywhere. So can you be “back” if you never actually left? Either way, here I am! 2016 has been incredibly busy for us. Many many changes!
There hasn’t been a whole lot of downtime for me this year, and though I kinda enjoy being busy (who am I kidding, I love it) It’s nice to have a day of nothing with Mitchell.
This year I made my very first blanket! I made it for someone who is a huge fan of the Seattle Super Sonics. I have to say, though it isn’t perfect, I think the project turned out really well, and the person we gave it to loved it! I’ve discovered sewing is really quite relaxing and it has helped me get through a few rather stressful weeks. I also made handmade catnip treats!
We’ve also been able to play several new board games the past few months. If you didn’t know, I looooove playing board games.
A few (several actually) months back my friend Lauren sent me a care package. Inside the care package was a copy of Forbidden Island. We loved it so much and played it any chance we got. Then, this last Christmas Mitchell got a copy of Forbidden Dessert. It is just as much fun as Forbidden Island, but slightly more complicated which is great!
Another game Mitchell got for Christmas was Exploding Kittens. We actually had a friend come over a few months back and introduced us to the game. I had heard of it online but we had never had a chance to play it. That’s another super fun game. We also recently got to play one of my favorite games, Munchkin!
There is a place near by, that lets us play games for free. So a few others we’ve been able to play are:
Patchwork (I enjoyed this one. Mitchell did not.)
Ticket to Ride Europe (I had heard of this one, and always wanted to play it.)
Betrayal at House on the Hill (Our friend introduced us to this, and I LOVED it!)
Coup (Same friend introduced this one to us too, and I enjoyed it a lot!)
There have been several others, but I can’t seem to remember them at the moment.
If you have any questions or would like to suggest a game for us to play, just let me know!
