Tagged, Etc.

I feel like I have been so out of the loop lately with the adoption world. This is not necessarily a bad thing as I just realized that we are closing in on 6 months of waiting for a referral and I’m not even sure where the last month has gone. Hopefully time will continue to fly by until referral. I did check in with our agency today and received some positive news about the goings on in the adoption world. I also realized that Troy and I need to update our homestudy regarding a change in job for Troy and also some additional forms that may go along with that. That will keep me busy the next few days!!

Meanwhile I was tagged by Joy to list 8 random things about me. So here goes:

8 Random Things About Me (don’t laugh!!)

1. I have a seriously huge collection of My Little Pony’s from the 80’s. I also have been collecting the current ones as well.

2. I can’t sing or clap to a beat, but I marched (on beat) with the high marching band as a flag girl and I loved every minute of it!

3. I can only cook a few things well. Troy does most of the cooking.

4. I listen to audio books on CD in the car on my commute to work. I especially love the Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum series. Oh, and I still like to read an old Harlequin every now and again.

5. I like to cross-stitch but am famous for starting one project before finishing another and have a whole bin of unfinished projects. (I should start working on those!!)

6. I was voted Most Friendliest Female my senior year in high school.

7. I wouldn’t trade Troy for the world, but I miss living in my dorm room at college surrounded by all my friends. It’s hard to keep up with everyone now.

8. I can’t wait to be a mom. There was a time I thought I might never want kids until I met Troy and knew right away I wanted to start a family with him. It’s amazing what the right man can do to you!! We can’t wait to be parents!

Well, I can’t tell who has already been tagged, but I’m going to tag Mandy on this one!! Hope you don’t mind!!

Everyone loves a little bit of positive news! :-) Love, love, love Janet Evanovich! I was just telling Melissa to get one of her books today.

Thanks for tagging me! It's the first time I've been tagged for anything. Did you get the email about the bear info? I love audio books too ... it's just my cd player in my truck has stopped working and I don't want to spend the extra money to get it fixed or buy a new one! Have a great day!

Jane and Jim said...

Great list! You definitely seem like the friendliest!
I hope the agency gets moving soon on your baby!!!

When you become a mom, your cooking will get better. you suddenly have a new reason to bake cookies and cupcakes and host birthday parties.

I think you are going to make a great mom!

Allison said...

We sound like we have so much in common! Hoping you hear some good news very soon!

Janine said...

I hope you get some good news soon too! I can't wait to hear your good news!

I'm glad you received some positive news from CHI! That is great! I hope you all are doing well!

I think of you each time I look at our pictures of our little one brushing her hair with the Pretty Pony brush.

I got out my Strawberry Shortcake and Cabbage Patch Dolls saved this weekend to put in our little one's room. So much fun!

Hey Rachel! Thanks for contacting me...we finally got moving on our Blog!! My husband and I had seen your blog previously and you definitely stuck in our mind...not only because of the close Dossier submission dates, but we had our honeymoon in St. Lucia!! We were excited to see pictures of it and got a kick out of the Piton Beer pics...we enjoyed it as well! That would be SO wonderful if we travel to Vlad at the same time! Keep in touch!

I love your list. I have been known to sit in the garage to listen to the end of a chapter.
