Weekend Update

Today we are going to our adoption orientation with what will hopefully be our agency! Blaze and I are super excited, nervous, anxious etc. Please please say a little prayer for us that everything goes smoothly and works out like we are wanting! The more and more people come up to us and ask about adoption, the more we get excited thinking about it! We are hoping that the 'thinking' will turn into it actually happening soon!! :) I will tell you though, everyone that we know of that has actually gone through the adoption process has told us how hard and trying it will be and how emotionally and physically draining it can be. They are definitely telling the truth. I overheard Blaze on the phone the other day with one of his buddies who had asked about how everything was going and Blaze was just telling him how no one can really prepare you for how stressful and emotional this whole process is, but Blaze made a great point by saying that in the end, it will all be worth it! I hope that we can look back someday at these types of posts and just remember that everything we are going through right now wont even matter then. That we will be willing to go through this time and time again just to have our beautiful babies! :) I can't imagine what being pregnant and expecting that way is, but I will say that this is just as an exciting and nerve wrecking experience as that I'm sure! 

I found two quotes on adoption that I think are very fitting! I have seen and experienced biological families that love each other and then those who don't. The latter breaks my heart but just because someone isn't 'blood' doesn't mean you cant love them just as much or more!

It's Friday

HECK YES!! It is FINALLY Friday! I don't know about yall, but this week has felt forever long with benchmark testing Tuesday and Wednesday for our kiddos! And to think, we have benchmark testing again next Tuesday and Wednesday!


We have four more weeks until Spring Break! I know you fellow teachers out there are keeping track! My students and I have a countdown of how many school days are left up on the board in my classroom! Hurry up March!!


Blaze and I have our adoption meeting on Monday with a certain agency!! We are praying that everything goes smoothly with them and they are the one we are supposed to go through! This whole process so far has been so stressful and it will be nice once we know what direction we are going agency wise!!

Blaze went out of town yesterday to Houston for the weekend (it is baseball season yall). So I got to see my parents last night and we got dinner! It is always nice to go see them when I can (aka, when I have any free time lately).


Our home renovations are slooowly coming along! I really am hoping to post before and after pictures soon!! I am trying to finish the kitchen cabinets and want to hang stuff up on the walls this weekend as well! It is starting to look nice! Woohoo!

TGIF ya'll!! Have a great weekend, especially with the nice weather coming our way!
