Favorite Photo Friday

In honor of my Brother's birthday this week, I thought I would share some good times we have had with him this year. Here's a pic of Dad, John, and Scott at the University of Tennessee before a football game. That was a great weekend. He will also be running the Peachtree Road Race with John and I. He got suckered into it by John too! Lots of training lately and I have lost anotoher 10 more pounds- whoo hoo!

That's all for now- no adoption update but we have not lost hope and know the time will be right when we are meant to continue our journey.

Have a great weekend!

not so favorite photo...

This is what we woke up to this morning. I noticed it as we were pulling out of the driveway to go to the gym. Terrible. But, it all came off with some goo-gone. Gold spray paint and one police report later, I was headed to work. Thought I would share the pics. They think it is some sort of gang graffiti. We live in a wonderful neighborhood. All our neighbors were stopping by and were very upset at this outcome. Oh, goes on. But you better believe I will be watching out my window for any little noise to try and catch the suckers if they even think about doing it again!!!

No news on the adoption front. I have taken a little paperwork break. Need a real vacation as work has been extremely stressful lately with no time to blog. Also, I have been training very hard every morning and (drumroll!!!) 9lbs shed later...I'm still alive. We are looking forward to our journey picking back up real soon.

Congratulations to ALL the referrals this week and last- gives me such inspiration and hope to see this progress for the children and the much awaited families.

Just Busy

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! I am under the gun with less than 30days until the Peachtree Road Race. SOOOOOO- I have been training- very hard. It is more like a Running boot camp now. John and I have been working out every morning at the track and at the gym and starting this week we will add some swimming. Does anyone see the trend here?!?! I am working my way to a triathlon!

Although I have not signed up for anything yet. I feel the urge to train right now. Given that our adoption is a little slow. We are still paperchasing...again. Plus, the courts will be closing in August and we don't want to risk our paperwork being out of date. So, for now ,we are slowly gathering the information and pushing our "dated" material for later in the summer.

Last week, on Saturday, Wayne Gibson III was welcomed into the world! This is my friend's first child and I was there at the hospital with much anticipation to witness the little guy. HE Is Adorable! The week prior, her sister, Shea also had her 3rd baby boy- Turner! So, it was a big time for celebration, and recovery for my girls. I love them all so much and am grateful I am a part of this precious time in their lives. Can't wait to see these two grow up together...Tripp and Turner :)

Headed out to work. Have a Great Week Everyone. I will post some pics later.
