It's hard to believe that the reason why I started this blog was our adoption of a beautiful little girl! You can look back in our history and read all about it, if you really want to relive the moments. When I was in Alaska waiting the adoption process of Alyse I wanted everyone to know about our journey and share pictures! Now four years later, I am still blogging about her life. Wow, did I just type 4 yrs! God continues to amaze me how He
brought her into our lives and how much joy she is. We are currently waiting for His timing again to add to our family! In the meantime, we will enjoy teaching how to ride a bike and all the fun that comes with being four!
The best way to celebrate a milestone birthday is to make it a bash. So I called up my best buds and our cousin in NYC to see if it may work! I decided to postpone it for a month to hopefully have warmer weather (which didn't really work). My sister was able to join us to take in the sights, attend Wicked on Broadway (which was incredible), hang out in Times
Square and eat at my kind of restaurant, only Mac-n-cheese on the menu! I am very blessed to have great friends and family, hopefully we will be able to celebrate many more milestones to come.
Those who know me, may not know that I wish I was a crafty person. I mean putting things together, sowing, making thrifty things. It has always been a goal for me to at least try but I guess I am too slow for the project to get it finished or to lazy to do it right. I always have great intentions and ideas but that is as far as they go.
My friend over at radical crafts - radicalcrafts.blogspot.com (check it out), posted about a cool project for baby food jars. I had a wedding shower coming up so I went for it. I did two jars one for the bride and one for the groom. It was fun, didn't take long, learned you can't put hot glue all the way around the top and then put your ribbon on. After much pealing off, I finally finished the project. Then I had these really cool all natural honey jellybeans, thanks to my mom, that topped of the project!! Don't worry, I won't be trying anything new soon!!!
WOW! It has been way to long since I did something with this! I almost forgot I had a blog site, not even sure if anyone is out there! Maybe it was because this past month I said goodbye to the thirties and hello to a new era. Upon turning the big four oh, I was thinking of what transpired during the 30's. This is what I came up with;
I got married
Bought a house, Inherited a Dog
Got a new doggie when we had to say goodbye to the old one
Adopted a beautiful baby girl
went to Alaska twice
checked off baseball spring training from my bucket list
bought two cars
had one car accident
caught up with old friends that I always wondered about
celebrated a high school reunion
said prayers for three tours of duty for my brother
added a new sister in law
visited NYC - and will again to celebrate the big birthday
(there is probably much more but since I am getting old, can't quite remember them all)
So goodbye to the 30's! Can't wait to see what my list for the next ten years!!!
