A Few Things

There are a few things wandering around this jumbled head of mine tonight.  In no particular order…

  1. Today I spent MM’s nap time making her a custom Barney outfit for the big concert we’re attending next Thursday.  Have I not mentioned it?  Mom got us floor seats at Phillips Arena to see Barney’s Birthday Bash.  My little girl is soooooo excited about this–Barney is hands-down her favorite TV show and he is her hero.  I made her an appliqued Barney shirt and coordinating double ruffle pants.  Pictures coming for sure.
  2. We’re meeting with an adoption attorney tomorrow to get a feel for the private side of adoption and to determine if we’re going to go that route.  Also, we found out our third {and final!} home study meeting will be on April 17th.  It’s the big home inspection visit and we’ve got a lot of things to do to get ready–like hello, paint the front porch that has needed painting for the last 3.5 years!–but we are so ready for this part to be finished so we can move on with the process.
  3. Speaking of cleaning and organizing, I organized all our paperwork this week.  This may not sound like a big deal, but I can assure you it was to me.  It took me four hours, six binders, and two-hundred page protectors, but I now can put my finger on any tax return or closing document or birthday card from the last six years.  Next up?  Our closet.  It should be afraid, very afraid.
  4. Plans began in full-swing this week for MM’s spring fling second birthday party for the end of April.  It’s a farm theme Easter egg hunt.  Oh my.
  5. MM has learned all the words to ‘Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep’ prayer and recites them all on her very own each night before bed.  Melts my heart into a pile of goo, let me tell you.
  6. And last, but definitely not least since it’s all I can think about, but this Saturday we’re going to the Metrolina Antiques Market in Charlotte.  At the top of our list is finding a chifferobe for the nursery {which, believe me, a necessity in an old closet-less house} and, well, any other do-dads that catch my eye.  Perhaps vintage toys?

Whatcha got going on in that head of yours?

    Oooh – wish I were going to th antique show! We were lucky enough to be in Nashville one year (for another event) when the Heart of the Country antique show was there. What a show!

    Enjoy your weekend – hope you find a chifferobe – post pics if you do!
