Wordish Wednesday

A little ode to books = ♥

I love reading in my spare time - which sometimes is only during my lunch hour at work.
I love getting so engrossed in a book that I feel like I'm actually there with the characters experiencing their emotions.
I love sharing good books with friends.
I love books!

Happy Wednesday!

Random Update & Stuff

Happy Fat Tuesday!
Yeah, we don't really celebrate Mardi Gras too much here in NJ but it really does look like so much fun doesn't it? So to those of you that DO celebrate... have a blast!

Just a little update on what is happening around here:
  • We meet with our Social Worker tonight to start our Adoption paperwork.. eeep! Yes, I am still on Cloud 9! It's nice to not have that extra burden to carry around. Now we just pray the process goes smoothly and soon we can have a big celebration welcoming our daughters to their forever family! ♥ (not that we haven't been celebrating them for 2 years & overjoyed they've been in our lives!)
  • I lost 12 pounds this week on a new program I started. 12 POUNDS! Are you kidding me? It makes me want to jump up & down, which would be great exercise to keep me going. lol! YAY! {Hubby lost 17 pounds.. so proud of him!}
  • I'm excited to receive a new item soon which I will be reviewing for all of you. It's like my first official review. Pretty cool stuff.
  • Abbie is almost out of pull-ups completely. *happy dance* She went on the potty all weekend and only had 1 accident! ONE! Oh my little girl is growing up, I can't stand it! Bittersweet - happy to be out of pull-ups but sad that she is becoming more independent! She even goes into the bathroom, stands on the little stool and does it all by herself. *tears!*
  • Jaelyn is drawing on her Magna Doodle more & more, which isn't a big deal EXCEPT that she draws "Mommy, Daddy, Jaelyn, Abbie & Kitty" ♥ How cute is that? She actually draws all of us with smiley faces and the kitty with whiskers. Pretty talented for 3!
  • Warmer weather is creeping in more & more which makes me so happy. Outside time! I love it!
  • I get to order my bridesmaid dress for my BFF's wedding this month (I think!) - how exciting. I am so beyond thrilled for her.
  • I am reconnected with some high school friends later in the month. A few of us lost touch but we are meeting at a diner that we all used to hang out with in high school. I cannot believe it's been almost 20 years since we've all been together at the same time. WHAT?!
  • The daycare plans are moving right along... I can't wait to see more progress. Hopefully I will get to share it with you.
So, what's new with you? Please share!
Have a great Tuesday!!
