Stalled Out But Still Busy!

We’re at a lull in the adoption process for the moment. We’re waiting on our 2nd (and final) home study visit which will be in a couple weeks.

But life still goes on! My husband’s grandma died last week, so he’s going to Wisconsin for the funeral this week.

Next week Gab heads out to […]

Baby Shower

A friend at church is pregnant, due the first week of June.

Our Girl’s Night group decided we would throw her a diaper shower, complete with big diaper cake. We thought of this back in January or February.

Someone else (that doesn’t come to Girl’s Night ‘cuz she chooses not to, not b/c she’s not […]

Girl’s Night Last Night!

Well, last night was my turn for Girl’s Night. Our theme was “I’m Seeing Red!”

It was fun…I made tomato soup, sandwiches, tuna-noodle salad and red punch. Of course all this was served on red plates, red bowles, and red cups. We also had red twizzlers and red-wrapped chocolate. Later for dessert, we had heart-shaped […]

January First!

The first day of another new year. Love it 🙂

Last night we had friends over. They’re about our ages with 5 cute little kids (and she’s pg with the 6th) ages 8 to 2. It was not the quietest night we’ve had, but it was tons of fun. We had all the usual party […]

Girl’s Night Recap!

I’m tired. Very tired.

The friend that hosted did a great job on the food spread. She had pinwheel-like sandwiches, chips, crackers and dip, eggnog and hot chocolate. Everything was really good. And she held the party in her basement, which has a nice fireplace…that’s where I sat for the evening. I love fireplaces!

So […]

That Was….um…There.

Last night my dh had his work party…not the whole business, just IT and their families. Only one other person brought her 2 kids. Luckily ours were behaving well.

They had lots of wine and beer…we were two of 5 people not drinking, so it was fun watching other people get tipsy 😀

Dinner consisted […]

Pierce’s 3rd B-Day

Happy Birthday Little Guy!!!

It’s amazing how fast 3 years has gone by! He’s getting so big and has grown out of most of his baby trials. (yay!) He loves playing with his sister and daddy and he’s even sharing his prized “yellow blankie” with his brother. That’s quite a feat! He’s already got a […]

My Girl’s Night Party

I was starting to panic yesterday morning when I had only heard from 2 people out of 5. One was coming, one wasn’t. But then I began to get phone calls so I had hope again! Three of my girlies showed up, then one called (who said she was coming) and said she wouldn’t be […]

Girl’s Night

On a message board I hang out on, one of the girls mentioned girl’s nights and going out. I realized that’s just not something I’ve done in a long, long time. I have a lot of friends at church and the gym, but no one I hang out with for fun. Pathetic and sad, yes, […]
