Saturday November 10 was Noah’s birthday and also the day of her party.
We celebrated it safari style! Mainly because back in July my mom and I found this cute dress that I totally had to plan the party around. Isn’t that how every girl plans a party? Around their outfit.
It was perfect though because once I started...
Thankful Thursdays: Forever
- Published on Thursday, 15 November 2012
A few weeks ago, I shared the news that Michael Luke and I are in the process of adopting a child from Colombia. Two weeks ago, as we were wrapping up the home study part of the process, we encountered a bump in the road.
We would not be able to adopt from Colombia.
It definitely took us by surprise and took a couple of hours...
Hot, Sour, and One

Looking back, last week seems like a blur. A mad dash to the finish line. Finals week. It was crazy, I was crazy, but it all culminated with a wonderful birthday party for Noah on Saturday.
Ahhh! She’s one!
I know I owe you lots of details. What was the theme? How was the food? To smash or not to smash a cake? E...

Today I am kicking off the first Thankful Thursday post of November. Is anybody else surprised that it is already November? Next thing you know we will be taking down the tree and getting ready for the new year.

The Pinterest Challenge
I freaked out a little last week when Sherry announced the Fall Pinterest Challenge for today. With such a busy schedule lately, it put tackling something this past weekend out of the question. So I thought a little more about it and realized I had already been taking on a Pinterest challenge.
In the past few...

While we are waiting on the installation of our kitchen counters we decided to take advantage of this opportunity and make another area of our kitchen a little more functional.
Our spice storage. Up until this point all of our spices (and we have a lot) have been stored in the pantry… or better know as the tall cabinet.
Our “Sweet” Counters

It all started a couple of months ago when I put together this idea board for our kitchen makeover.

I’ll just be totally honest I am drawing a blogging blank and have been procrastinating writing for about an hour now. It’s not that there is a lack of things to blog about. We have certainly been busy this past week. So much so that I could use a few extra hours of sleep… or a morning where the alarm clock isn...
