August ICLW

Hello to those of you participating in ICLW!

Just a quick blurb on me.

My husband and I are approved to adopt and are waiting for "The Call".  Have questions?  Feel free to ask - I love talking about [most] aspects of our story and definitely about adoption.

I love cats.

And chocolate.

I am currently eating on Organic Soy-Free Swiss Milk Chocolate bar - it's my drug of choice during PMS.  I can't eat soy, amongst many other things, so I was very happy to find this bar.

I recently turned 31.  I was told it would be harder than turning 30, but 31 was pretty much a non-event for me.  Once upon a time I "planned" on being done having kids by age 30.  Bwahahahahaha!!!!!  Ultimately, though, I'm glad God is in charge because I think He knows what He's doing a whole lot better than me. 

What do you think of this idea?

Do you scrapbook?  I do, and make cards, and stamp, and I love it all!  This is my most recent completed page, pretty much baring my heart.

Is anybody else like this?  I find myself obsessing about all things baby-related - the clothes, oh, the adorable onesies and shoes, and the how-to take care of a baby books, and looking at pins for ideas on decorating a nursery, etc.  Yet at the same time I feel as if the pregnant people are stalking me, because they're everywhere, and really does every article and book and TV show and conversation have to include pregnancy, labour and delivery, nursing, and how nothing compares to said experiences??

I also love corn on the cob.  And tis the season for corn on the cob!

And I'm hungry.

And I'm like a squirrel, jumping from topic to topic.  Makes it more interesting for you! :D


  1. ha love your iclw welcome post ;)

  2. Once upon a time, I planned to be done having kids by 30 to. 31 was my magic number. Love your welcome post. Happy ICLW!

  3. Hi from ICLW. Random is good. I also like chocolate, corn on the cob and must be hungry. I have a scrap book I started in 8th grade and never finished... maybe someday? Hope you get "the call" very soon.

  4. Good luck on "The Call". I know how stressful those can be, even if it's not for adoption!

    I make digital scrapbooks, locally known as websites. Does that count?

  5. Hi from ICLW! A long long time ago, I thought that if I started at 28, I'd have 2 by 30. I draw.

  6. Hi from ICLW! I love cats and chocolate, too. Good luck waiting for the call- hopefully the wait is very short! :)

  7. Hi from ICLW! yes, yesterday I went into Costco and had the thought to buy some of the toys or dolls they had on display..
    All the best on the call!
