Trying to decide what to put in Maddi’s first care package to China was actually quite nerve wracking for me. I’ve read a few things that say that they may or may not give the things to the intended child. And if they do give them to them, it’s sometimes not until just before you… [Continue Reading]
I’ve seen a lot of coffee and wine ecard-ish things going around lately and it gave me an idea… What if I created a new food guide pyramid? So I did! And I think it’s genius if I do say so myself! What do you think?

The second book in my Book-a-Week Challenge is called A Shade of Vampire. I actually read and reviewed the first book in this series a few months ago. You can read my review here. So I thought I’d read the second book, A Shade Of Blood. I totally LOVED the first book, but book 2… [Continue Reading]

My blogging buddy, Carrie, over at CarrieElle.com tagged me in a post she did today that was part of a link up over at Miss Elaine-ous Life about Old School Blogging and MySpace! This is kind of like that post I did a while back about the 25 Random Things About Me…which was kind of… [Continue Reading]
Meet Maddi (Madeline) Grace! We are super excited! As you know, we got a call, almost a month ago, asking if we’d be willing to look at the file of a little girl. We have finally gotten the initial approval from China, so we are allowed to share her picture publicly. She is 15 months… [Continue Reading]
Fitness Meets Fashion So I’m not really a fashionista (by any stretch of the imagination), but I recently got a chance to try out some fashion exercise clothes and they were awesome! Maybe even good enough to get my butt to the gym more often! Ellie is bringing fitness fashion to whole new level. They… [Continue Reading]
I have discovered my new summer drink – a Moscato Slushie! I must admit that I like Moscato (in moderation, of course) so I don’t usually mix it with anything, but this little experiment was too good not to share. Over Memorial Day, we were invited to a party where they were serving strawberry daiquiris…. [Continue Reading]
This is the first book in our Summer Reading 2013 Book-a-Week Challenge. I’m going to start off by saying that if cursing bothers you…this is NOT the book for you. Also, if bedroom scenes aren’t really your scene…then probably best to skip this one. If you’re still with me, then you’ll love it! The… [Continue Reading]
When I was first approached by a company to participate in a gout awareness campaign, I thought “Why should I care about gout?” But then I thought my grandfather had mentioned it once and maybe I should at least look into it to see what it is and if it has any kind of genetic… [Continue Reading]

Now that we are no longer in a holding pattern on the adoption…I think it’s time to move into the planning portion of this process! So please forgive me if I’ve been “off the blog” lately…but I’ve been shopping and planning! Have you seen these Leg Warmers by My Little Legs? Super cute and perfect… [Continue Reading]
I very rarely talk about religion in any kind of large group or open forum, but today I’m going to make an exception. I was sent a book to review and I feel that it really has a good message to deliver, but that some may judge the whole thing by it’s title. So please… [Continue Reading]
Yesterday we went downtown to have lunch with my husband. Downtown restaurants aren’t very kid friendly usually…but they were very nice and tried to accommodate us by making just plain cheese quesadillas. Connor did choose to try the frog legs…so we let him. (We took a trip to Disney last Fall and discovered he likes… [Continue Reading]
I can’t really give you much more info until China officially approves it, but… WE HAVE A BABY! I got a call last Wednesday afternoon from the agency asking if we’d like to look at a file….of course, we said yes! Her need wasn’t what we expected (many of the children have cleft… [Continue Reading]
