100 POSTS!!!

Wow, I cannot believe this is my 100th post! WooHoo! I know many bloggers have a giveaway for milestone posts, but since we are saving money to bring Drew home I am sure you will understand us not having one this time.

First off, I would like to thank all my bloggy friends who have hopped over to my ebay auctions and bid and won many of my children's clothes. The last of my auctions end this afternoon so if you haven't had a chance, go check them out there are still some great items left to bod on.

In adoption news, yesterday we FINALLY traveled to Indy to be fingerprinted. I feel like it has taken forever to get to this step but I am so thankful that it is over. Now, we just wait for our approval, which once we get that I will hand carry it back to Indy to our Secretary of State for his approval, and then it is off the the Chinese Consulate in Chicago for their seal of approval. After that, it is off to our agency for a once over and then to China. I am hoping and praying that we will be DTC (Dossier to China) by the end of August/first of September.

Other than that, there is really not a whole lot going on here right now. I am working on a few things for another fundraiser/raffle which I am hoping to have ready by next week. Oh, what do you all think of my new blog makeover? I still have a few more changes, but the majority is done. I am thinking of doing a few makeovers as a way to make some money to help with our adoption expenses so if you are in the need, or simply just want to change things up a bit let me know and I can get started on your new makeover right away. Just leave a comment or e-mail me and we can work out all the details.

I got on New Day's web-site like I do everyday and was so surprised to see so many pictures of Drew on their. The preschool kids made cookies the other day and played dress up. From the following pictures, it looks like they had a great time.

I think we may be in trouble in a few years with this little guy. Although our phone is already ringing off the hook for Blake with girls calling him. HELP, I am so not ready for this!



Oh how I LOVE those cheeks!

Hi Mandi
I came across your blog through Tami's. I was at New Day last week and met your son. He is absolutely darling.
Best wishes to you and your family!
