Why I Have Been a Blogging Slacker Lately

Many reasons really.  I’ve been very sleepy.  I haven’t felt much like sewing.  We’ve had some visitors in town recently.  But mostly because I am thinking avidly about my next big “project”:

My husband and I are expecting a baby this Christmas!

Unbeknownst to us, the baby has even already been to a convention – MegaCon hehe.

Lots of things are about to change for us for sure – almost certainly the frequency of my blogging – but here are a few things that are not gonna change:

1. We are still going to DragonCon.  I still intend to cosplay.

2. We are still going to Orkfest in November.

Otherwise, all bets are off heh.

I had a lot of trouble coming up with a baby announcement for Facebook, since that is such a thing these days.  I have to give my friend, Juliet, props for telling me to do something cosplay related since it hadn’t even occurred to me!  Here is what I went with:

CosplayAnnouncement

Jesse has recently made the suggestion that I make the baby (and dogs) a dragon costume, and myself a Khaleesi costume so that I can be the “mother of dragons”.  I like that idea as well – but let’s face it, I have some time, and a few other sewing things on my plate between now and baby time!  In case you are curious, my Facebook post did get us some votes on a costume.  Jesse’s suggestion (dragon & Khaleesi) got 6 likes, Ewok received 6 votes, Baby Groot received 5, House elf got 4, and Link and Katamari got 2 each.  I feel bad for the Pikmin one, so I’ll cast my own vote there LOL.

Some of the other announcement attempts were either based on ideas that were either done too frequently for me (though I love dogs, and find these announcements very cute)…

DogAnnouncement
…or too random and geeky for the general populace to get the reference.  This was my personal favorite, but sadly I felt only a handful of the people we know would understand the Stone Age reference.

And in traditional, Jesse style, my husband did an announcement of his own, which made me giggle:

That’s it for now … Expect some random baby projects and updates in the next few months, but don’t worry, there will still be costumes, geekiness, and board game reviews as well 🙂
