Tagged X3

Hi. My name is Jen. I think I've been tagged 3 times, but who really knows because my name is Jen and I am not the only one with that name. So, instead of asking each person if they meant me or some other Jen, I am just going to complete all of the tags anyway.

So, here you go...

My Guilty Pleasures

1. Sleeping in.
2. Using all the hot water.
3. Time on the computer.
4. Shopping.
5. Baking and sampling the goods.
6. Crafts.
7. Wearing PJ's most of the day.
8. Eating out when I don't want to cook.
9. Cheating a little on our budget.
10. Going overboard on buying Christmas presents.

And next...

This is the 4th picture in my 4th file. This picture was taken this summer during a family reunion. We had spent most of the day geocaching and decided to take a break and eat some ice cream. Fun times!

The Wee's Car Seat

How beautiful is this gender friendly car seat!! I love it and every time I see it, I get giddy all over and squeal like a little girl.

It is reversible which makes it even more neutral. One side (pictured) has flowers for a girl and the other side is the other navy blue fabric with cream in it for a boy.

Thanks Lauren for sewing this for me...words cannot express how much I love it!

Hand Picked

We found our baby! A birth mom has chosen us to adopt her baby, due November 15. We are beyond thrilled! It has been an amazing few months and I am in awe at how much we know that this baby is ours. I really don't know why our baby needs to come the route that it is and it especially breaks my heart because I know the birth mom and her family very well. I hate to see her/them go through such pain. But, she was guided towards the right decisions to make, as difficult as it was, and she stayed strong. She is amazing and we are so grateful for her!

Without going into too much detail, we have been preparing for this child in our home for a long time (years). Jeff and I have had several promptings about this adoption and were also guided along our way (sometimes difficult too). We feel so honored to be chosen and worthy to raise this valiant spirit. We can't wait to meet our baby!

"Everywhere in nature we are taught the lessons of patience and waiting. We want things a long time before we get them, and the fact that we want them a long time makes them all the more precious when they come."

Pumpkin Patch

I am so loving this time of year...the colors, activities, and especially the caramel apples.

Luckily on the night we went to the pumpkin patch my good friend and photography excellente was there too. She snapped this family picture for us. I wasn't expecting to be in any of the photos, so please excuse my make-upless, not showered self. And, on a really sad note...I am wearing the same orange Old Navy hoodie that I wear every fall since I've been married (8 1/2 years). Yikes! I guess it is time to go shopping!

I am loving this toothless grin and hoping she doesn't grow in her awkward big front teeth any time soon.
