Have a Spooktacular Halloween!!

"May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright
Of soft and golden hue
Pierce through the future’s veil and show
What fate now holds for you."

I'm Fessing Up

verb, -nat.ed,
1. to put off till another day or time; defer; delay.

So by now I’m sure you can all tell I am a bit of a procrastinator. Unfortunately Fliss knows this all too well. ;o)

My posts are always late and by the time I get some of your posts read my comments are the very last or I just don’t bother because you have many newer posts. I may not always comment but I am reading and thinking of all of you . Sorry to say I have always been like this and probably always will.

I will continue to post things that are current and from the past just so that it will be recorded here. That way when we look back after we receive a referral we will hopefully be able to see what we were doing on or around the day she was born or found.

So with that said here are a few pictures from a local farm where my friend Donna and I went a few weeks ago to pick out our pumpkins.

Please remember that I am also participating in The Halloween Blog Contest that is happening over at The Seventh Diamond. So if you like what you see just send a quick email to and vote for THE PRICELESS PRINCESS!!

Does This Remind You Of Anyone?

A co-worker told me to check out this video because it reminded her of someone we work with.

This is friggin’ hilarious!!

Do any of you work with someone like "Cindy" from the video?

Just for formality sake I thought I would post this…

Last Monday marked another month of waiting for our little “Maggie” from China. They say “absence makes the heart grow fonder”…I’m not sure I can grow any fonder before my heart bursts right out of my chest!

21…wow, I still can’t believe it!

Here is a poem I stumbled across a few months ago.
It just felt so fitting for this post.

You Are Mine
by Kelly Feichtinger

I love you
though I have yet to see your face.
You are mine.

I dream of holding you in my arms
my child from far away
You are mine.

I lie awake at night
Imagining who you will be.
You are mine.

I prepare our home and my heart
to receive such a precious child.
You are mine.

I pray for your happiness and safety
until I can be the one to provide it.
You are mine.

I hold my breath
as we wait for the call.
You are mine.

I will the time to fly by
as we wait for permission to travel
You are mine.

I feel as though my heart will burst
when you are placed in my arms.
You are mine.

You rest your soft cheek against mine
and sigh contentedly.
I am yours.

Scarecrow Weekend

Tomorrow we will be having our 2nd annual Pumpkin Party. Everyone will bring a pumpkin and we will carve our designs together, then we head up to the festival. This is the weekend of The Scarecrow Festival in our town so one of the activities we will enjoy will be the “pumpkin walk”. This is an evening event where there are many, many pumpkins carved and lit up along a road. The road is closed to cars and people can walk along and enjoy cookies, apple cider and a talented local singer. Then there will be fireworks to end the festivities and we will all head back home for a few drinks around the campfire.

I can hardly wait to enjoy it again this year!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Depressing Results

Last Thursday we had our 2nd weigh-in with our “Wait” Watchers group at work. Unfortunately I got bad news…I gained 0.2 lbs! :o(

I was sooooo disappointed, discouraged and baffled. I kinda’ felt, like this pug looks...

I have been sticking to the program since we started and I have been very strict with myself about drinking LOTS of water, getting exercise and eating right.

Our WW group leader thought that my gain might have been the effects of some “womanly bloating”, so I got back on track for this week and I am hoping for a great weigh in tomorrow!!
