So proud of myself

Okay I don’t blame you if you think I am a big dork for posting this post, but I was seriously proud of my accomplishment this morning. First thing this morning I got out my recipes and made my grocery list for the week, so I could go grocery shopping before it was crowded out…



Adoption Update

We really don’t have much to update everyone, but wanted to keep everyone in the loop. CIS has had our home study for about two weeks now, so we should have our I-171H in the next month. This weekend we took our last required class, it was a first time parents class. Today we organized…



Warming up your car

With the cold New England winter weather about to swoop down on us, I have a queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach. Why, you ask? Because every winter when my boyfriend and I get into my car, I start it, then I put the car in gear after about 30 seconds and drive…



Apparently I have been busy!

I just realized it has been over a week since I last blogged! Don’t worry I will get you all caught up with this post….



Matt Kicked out of the house

Is what Stephanie wanted to post. But It was a mutual decision. So some of you may know Our Design firm has been getting busier and busier. Lots of new projects, great clients, and so on. We have out grown the concept of working in Matt & Stephanie’s house. I’m excited, but I think Stephanie…




Maybe Matt is Right

Matt and I have never really made New Year’s Resolutions. Recently while reading another blog I realized why we don’t do resolutions. We are both goal oriented people. Concrete goals don’t evaporate in the face of adversity, hardship or laziness. Resolutions are broken — and usually abandoned — with one misstep; goals are such a…



Random Stuff

Jackson looking quite perturbed at the most recent business figures. Who needs an accountant when you have a cat? One of my favorite Christmas gifts. I never had the privilege of using a food processor before and I am in love! I asked for it in hopes of making baby food, but last night I…



Merry Christmas!

So some of you are thinking has Stephanie lost her mind? It is way past Christmas, plus she has already done a Merry Christmas post. No, I have not lost my mind. Today, January 7, is the day they celebrate Christmas in Ethiopia. I hope to celebrate it next year with Tom and Jerry and…



Another Step Completed

We finished our dvd course this afternoon and past all of our tests! It was supposed to take a week to find out the results of our last tests, but we found out the same day we took it. Thank goodness too because I was fretting over my answers to some of the questions.



We Are Certified!!!

We are certified to adopt by Pinal County! I was starting to get a little frustrated as it had been almost a month since we submitted our home study for approval. They actually certified us on Christmas Eve, but didn’t notify us until today. I guess they didn’t understand how patiently I was waiting for…
