Several things.

1) My friend is in NYC visiting her friend this weekend. Did I mention how jealous I am in my last post? HA. It did happen to bring back some great memories. My mother worked for the airlines when I was younger. I think around 5th grade to high school. Living close the Nashville Airport, my father would take us girls on dates via plane. We would leave early Saturday morning and fly to NYC and shop for the day. FAO Schwartz was the best toy store ever. We would spend the day together and fly back that night. Those are some times I will never forget. Also one of the reasons I have seriously considered a job as a flight attendant.

2) I went to the Dermatologist this week. I have had some serious breakout problems. I am 32 years old and this should not be happening. His only explanation was that being in school again and having a big change to full time student has caused higher stress levels. I tried to explain that I don't "feel" stressed. I got antibiotics, lotions, washes and lots of other things. Hopefully this will clear up quickly! It is not fun!

3) I can't wait to order my Christmas cards this week. I am running way behind because I have not had a chance to take some pictures of the kids. I am taking them to two different places today and hope to get some good shots. Then the decision of ordering what card. When I think I know what I want, I change my mind.

4) I watched a video this week about the Christians job to take care of the orphans. I have always been supportive of adoption. I also have never thought much about it, except when I hear others speak of it and I am always excited for them. It is hard to attend church every week and not think about it. Our church is HUGE on adoption. However that may be for you. There are many different ways of helping the orphans. It doesn't mean that I HAVE to adopt. While I would love to, Jason does not feel the same. Because it has been heavy on my heart I am really praying for a mind change of either him or myself. Maybe you can pray for this with me. It is burdensome to have something so heavy on your heart but not be able to do anything about it.

Finally got the tree up! Woo Hoo!
Pics will follow later.

PS. I have been participating in Clemsongirl's Christmas Swap the past couple of  years. She pairs you up with another blogger and you basically send a Christmas package. I got mine in the mail this week from Jen and loved it all. I am not a big fan of dark chocolate, but when paired with nuts and toffee…oh my goodness! Lets just say I bought a scale last night and weighed this morning. It is going to be my new Sunday morning thing. I have got to get control over this food stuff! Thanks so much Jen for everything! I loved it all!


  1. I'm a huge fan of adoption too. We seriously considered it before we had our girls. More recently -- as in, two weeks ago -- my sister and her husband met their new baby son, who is three months old.

    So glad you liked the goodies. Clemsongirl said to make it preppy, so I went to the preppiest shop in town (which is saying a lot because there's a lot of preppy here) and found some of the stuff. Then I went to a local gourmet food shop for the locally-made treats. Yum.

  2. I have a lot of friends in Ohio who are flight attendants. When I was little, that was what I wanted to be when I grew up! I wonder if you can only like work once a month...and still get the perks of flying free/cheap?
