Nursery Pics

Before: Purple on Purple

After: Chocolate and Cream

To give you an indication of how tall the ceilings are in this room... this a 20' ladder. The hubs (who does not like heights) was gripped on for life.

Thanksgiving Pics

This 4 day weekend is flying by. Thursday we went to Tuscaloosa. We had a lot of fun and ate way too much. We then came home and got prepared for our 10pm date with the outlets. Banana Republic had 50% off the whole store so it was calling our names! The traffic was C-R-A-Z-Y trying to get into that place! We got some good deals and then headed to Target for a fire pit. John got his first taste of Black Friday hysteria when an old lady clipped his heels, pushed around him, and got the last fire pit! He was so mad! I told him that courtesy doesn't exist on Black Friday!

This is a picture of two of my cousins' girls. We had a very interesting chat about adoption. Kids are so funny!

The hubs is currently upstairs painting the ceiling of the nursery so hopefully I'll have some pictures soon. He's in the zone right now because he's trying to finish before 1pm. We're going to a friend's house to watch the Alabama vs. Auburn game at 2pm. Roll Tide!!!

One Month

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I'm thankful that we have one month down on the waiting list for adoption! Woohoo! AH averaged our wait time to be 6 to 12 months so now we're one month closer.

I'm also thankful that Tristan came over Monday night and snuggled on the couch with John for several hours. He gets very little alone time with her so I know he soaked up all of its wonderfulness!

Tomorrow we're heading to Tuscaloosa for lunch with my family. I'm making artichoke bread! YUMMY! Then we'll come home to rest up for some midnight shopping. Oh yes, we are shopping at midnight with all of the other crazy people in the world!

I'm off to start my 4 DAY WEEKEND! I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with lots of love!

Whew! This has been a rough week! I was sick for most of it and then John started getting sick on Tuesday. I got a 6 Day pack of oral steroids and am finally on the mend. John never felt quite as badly as I did... thank goodness!

Today we are finally working on the nursery. I've been looking forward to decorating a nursery for four long years! I don't know why I was so excited; I've been taping the trim for hours! My fingers have cuts and are so sore but I finally got most of the room taped. We'll start painting tomorrow. Yay! I'll post some before (purple room) and after (brown/cream room) pictures soon.

Tristan's last tournament of the season was this weekend and they won! We are so proud of her! They had a game Friday night, games all day Saturday and all day Sunday. I didn't get to go to any of them because I had a baby shower Saturday night and one Sunday at my house. I'm sure John cheered enough for both of us.

On to the title of this post... I'm sick. I started feeling bad Friday, felt better Saturday but then took a turn to the dark side yesterday. I was running a fever so I was shunned upstairs in my own house for the shower! I get it... I wouldn't want to get any of the pregnant ladies sick. It was just so sad hearing all of them have a great time in my living room while I was lying in bed. I did sneak down toward the end of the party and met some of Emily's family. They were so sweet and said they read my blog and have been praying for us! It's so amazing to know there are people out there I haven't even met that pray for us. Thank you ladies... it's much appreciated.

I went to the doctor today and she gave me a shot in the hip, a Zpack and sent me on my way. Hopefully I'll be feeling much better tomorrow.

Another Busy Weekend

We have another busy weekend ahead of us. Tristan has her last tournament for the season and I'm throwing two baby showers! LL is coming down Saturday night for her shower and Sunday we're having Em's shower. Fun! Fun! Now I have to get busy cleaning!

1 for 2

At least one team we were cheering for yesterday won. Tristan's team won the tournament! Go Tristan. Alabama did not fare so well. It was a heart wrenching loss but we'll move on.

Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!

Roll Tide!

If you haven't heard, the game of the century is going down in Tuscaloosa tonight. There is so much hype around this game... #1 vs #2! I just hope that we show up ready to play! Unfortunately we will not be tailgating because Tristan has a softball tournament. Who thought it was a good idea to schedule a softball tournament today? Therefore, we'll be cheering for two red and white teams today... the Vipers (Tristan's team) and the Alabama Crimson Tide! Go Vipers and Roll Tide!!

Slap Bet

John and Raven made a bet while we were in Helen, Georgia for Oktoberfest. The wager was a slap. John won the bet so he got to slap Raven one time... any where, any time. He chose Saturday night when Raven was hosting his annual Halloween shindig. It worked out perfectly that John won the costume contest. Here's the video of John unleashing his slap. Scott took the video and I think his laughing may be the funniest part. Enjoy...
