Just what I needed!

Danielle of Where I Intended to Be and I are at about the same point in our adoption journey. She gave me this Beautiful Blogger Award which has really served as a pick me up as I sit here childless in the frozen tundra.

SO here are the rules:

1) Thank the person(s) who nominated you for this award
2) Copy the award and place it in your blog
3) Link to the person(s) who nominated you for this award
4) Tell us 7 interesting things about you
5) Nominate 7 bloggers and link to their blogs.

So Seven Interesting things about me. Hmm. Well, we'll see how interesting these items are!

1) I collect state map postcards. I only need to get Delaware to complete my collection.

2)I was very involved in 4-H as a child and teen. I was a state record book winner (big deal) and went to the National 4-H Congress. I was also one of two youth nation wide who attended a Master Communicator conference.

3) I bought my first home by myself at age 21 and opened my own business.

4)I've driven to west on I-80 to CA 6 times but I've only driven it back east once.

5) I fell in love with France when I was 15 and visited Annecy during high school.

6) I long to move to the country (even though I only live in town of 5,000 people).

7) I apparently make kick ass pumpkin and chocolate pecan pies even though I don't like (and won't taste) either of them.

I'm not sure who to nominate for this award. It looks like it's been making the rounds.

So (I say that a lot) on the adoption front.....

NADA. Just like the previous months. Valentine sex, resulting accidental pregnancies have to be coming to light right? Ground hog day misadventures? ST Patty's is coming up that's got to be good for drunken unprotected sex right?

The pregnant girl (for whom I'm taking over for during maternity leave) last day was today. She's got a scheduled c-section for Friday. I'm not excited to be taking over her work but I am glad not to have her big belly and swollen breasts mocking me on a daily basis.

C'est la vie I guess.


  1. I do keep remembering our request for druken Halloween unprotected that would be the end of the summer, right? :)

  2. We had a giant snowstorm and everything was closed down here for a few days. I was thinking to myself that those snowed in college kids have to be having a lot of unprotected sex, so fast forward nine months???

    Hang in there!!!

  3. I totally agree with your award! Jodi has a good point...much of the country has been hit with crippling snowstorms this winter. Could bode well for us towards the end of the year.

    I love pumpkin it. That's so unfortunate for my love handles and poochy stomach. That's why I don't bake. Well, one of the reasons.

    I live about 15 minutes from Delaware. When you collect, do you mean that you actually have to travel to the state? I collect magnets of places I've been.

  4. E - I just collect them from all the states. I don't have to have visited the state. Although I only have I think 7 states left to visit!

  5. You are a beautiful blogger! You are cracking me up about V-day sex etc. So true. Our baby girl was conceived via New Year's Eve drunken unprotected sex, we assume. If you count backwards from her due date....and we didn't hear about her until July. So you still could hear about Holiday mistake babies at this point! :) Thinking of you.
