It's Steeple Season

(This picture is actually from last year, but it gets the point across.)

Rich had his second race of the year, and it went really well. He raced at Stanford and placed 4th with a time of 8:46.91. He was the first collegiate finisher in the race (the first 3 were all pros, including his former teammate Kyle Perry who runs for New Balance). Right now, Rich has the best collegiate time in the nation!

And, he got some love from the BYU Athletic page.

You can watch his race here. I love that Flotrack films races and that I sometimes even get to watch them live. The announcers do call him Ryan Nelson at one point, but I think they were just getting names confused.

Anyway, it looks like a pretty good start to the season!

I'm Obsessed

Lately, I've become obsessed with being crafty. I want to make so many things: headbands, quilts, clothes. Here are some of the adorable things I have found so far. I am going to be crafty this summer and make these things.

Adorable rosettes, that I want to put on a headband:

I still can't get over Becca's fabric. I 'm going to make a quilt out of some of it. I will use these ones:

(The whole line can be seen here)

And this dress, which I know I know I won't be able to make for a LONG time, but it is so CUTE:

Now I just need the time and the money for all of this.

I Know a Fabric Designer

I just wanted to let the world know how amazing my friend (she was basically my roommate) is. She and her sister designed a fabric. I don't know how you get involved in something like that, but isn't that so awesome?! And, it's the most adorable fabric. I wish I knew how to do something crafty. I am seriously considering learning because I really want to use it. Maybe a blanket for a future baby? (No, that is not an announcement. I just LOVE the fabric and need an excuse.)

Here is her blog post with a picture of the fabric. It (and Becca and her sister) are so cute!
