Adoption Update
thumbnail
Well, actually, we don't really have anything to update. But I figured maybe you were wondering. Or maybe you weren't, but I am going to tell you what's happening, or what's not happening...whichever the case may be. We have researched adoptions for months. And we have run into closed door after closed door. We have contacted agencies, gone to meetings, talked to adoption workers and lawyers. We've talked to friends and ...

StitchFix
thumbnail
Have you tried it? Have you heard of it? I don't remember where I first heard of StitchFix, but it immediately attracted me. Basically, you pay a fee to have a stylist pick out clothes for you. You fill out a questionnaire about your style, your size, your budget, etc. The stylist sends you 5 things. You try them on at home, with different outfits, and decide if you want ...

I miss…
thumbnail
This move to Texas has been tough. But I'm sure you already know that, if you talk to me at all. I mention it once every 30 seconds or so. There are days when things are peachy-keen. But sometimes there are days like today. Days when I feel like there's a hole where something important used to sit. And that hole feels different on different days. Some days I miss ...

Acorns
thumbnail
We have a huge tree in our front yard. I mean, huge. We had it trimmed this year; they spent 3+ hours in our tree and we still have a ton of tree left. I love it, though. It provides shade, which keeps the house cooler. And it just looks cool. Last year I spent a lot of time raking up acorns so that we wouldn't have a bunch of baby ...

The Master Bedroom Paint Fiasco
thumbnail
I'd like to say I'm overreacting. But since all of you know that I don't ever do that, you understand the craziness that is picking out a paint color for our master bedroom. I showed you our master bathroom. I'm still working on the decorations in there, but I love the paint colors. I have some green accents. My vision for the two rooms was/is navy, gray, and coral. I'm ...

I left my kids!
thumbnail
Now, just so you know, I left my kids with my parents and we planned for the trip, but when I boarded that plane I questioned what kind of a mother leaves her kids for 3 nights and 4 days! Don't laugh at me. Last year I went away for two nights, but my man was home with the kids. Other than that, we have only left them for one ...

Finally another home update!
thumbnail
Things on the home decorating front move slowly around here. I have big plans; my budget however isn't quite as big. So we update a little bit at a time and keep our eyes out for good deals. Last weekend we drove to IKEA, planning to look at beds for Buddy. He's still not climbing out of the crib, so I see no reason to rush, but we thought we'd look ...

Our family
thumbnail
So every time I've opened my blog I've tried to write a post, but nothing has come to me. My man and I have been busy but we weren't sharing all of our activities. But we've decided that we should share our journey. Now, before I get too far and you are all sitting there trying to figure out what I'm talking about, I'll just share it with you. We want ...

Eight Years
thumbnail
Happy anniversary to my man! Eight years ago we were sweating through a heat wave, dealing with horrible traffic due to an accident, and enjoying all the family that came to celebrate with us! The last eight years have not turned out like I thought they would, but they've been wonderful, all the same. Taken eight years ago. We were giggling about something.   Taken last week at the Yankees/Rangers game. My man took me ...

Help me
thumbnail
We've been in our house for 13 months. My man painted Baby Girl's room before the kids and I moved here. Other than that, we've not done much other than buy furniture. Our bedroom wasn't terrible, but it's not what I wanted. The master bath had a tan/brown sponge-treatment thing happening. Again, not terrible, but so not what I wanted. I pinned a few thousand options for paint color, but I ...
