lots of news...

well in the past week we have several things that have come together so i thought i would do one post to share it all. i'm sure i'll post more later with more specifics but here you go. you may also have noticed that we are in the process of redesigning our blog. we are having some trouble with our header though, but it will be up soon.

this past weekend we had a couple of friends from our small group do a yard sale and the proceeds went to us and our friends that are adopting. and the week before that my in-laws had a yard sale for us too. so i am so excited to tell you that we are now UNDER $2,000!!!! i'm so excited. The rest is just chump change and will come in no time.

which brings me to my next big news...Chick-Fil-A is a huge advocate for orphans and they are very involved in several different programs. some friends gave us the suggestion to see if they would do a fundraiser for us. They call it a "Sprit Night". we just found out last week that they would LOVE to do a "spirit night" for us. so on a Thursday night soon between the hours of 5pm-8pm we will be rockin' it out at Chick-Fil-A in Cool Springs, TN. I will post more details later. But during that time we will invite as many people as we can to come pig out and Chick-Fil-A will give us 10% of their sales. So we just need them to do $20,000 worth of business and we will be all set. Sounds easy enough to me. The first thing we have to do is get 100 people to commit to coming to our Spirit Night. So we might be asking you! hope you can come and join us. i will let you know the date when we have it.

lastly, i just wanted to share they we bought baby bedding this weekend. i am so super excited and we found an AWESOME deal that we just couldn't pass up. i haven't set anything up really because i don't want it to get dusty. but i did put up the lamp, mobile, and dust ruffle. i will post pictures soon. maybe i'll even set it all up, take a picture, then take it down. we shall see. i love just going and sitting in the room. it is starting to really look like a nursery. all it needs is a sweet little baby boy :) all in God's timing.

well thanks for my rambling. i'll post more later.
