Party like a rockstar...


Yeah, that's what rock stars do.....right? You cannot imagine how retarded I felt taking this picture of myself, but I thought it would be a great visual for the rockstar themed shower. My husband is in a constant state of embarassment...I can't imagine why.



It's shower time! Cute invitations right?! My sis-in-law Jenn and Kim made them and I LOVE them! They know me so well. :)I know, I know, it would be smart to wait until we have a referral to have our shower...buuuut, I am the most rediculous of planners. If I waited until we got a referral it would mean having a baby shower, packing, buying all the things we still need and freaking out in the mere few weeks before we travel. That aint happening. :) I like to plan things way ahead of time so that I am prepared and ready to go- nice and leisurely, that's how I like it. Also, my sister-in-law/BFF, Jessica will be in town visiting this week so I HAD to have it while she was here! Oh how I wish that more of my blogger friends lived close by and could grace me with their presence...you have to admit girls, that would be the best time ever- all of us together in one room, finaly meeting and feelin' the love!! There really are so many of you that I secretly wish would buy a measly little plane ticket and fly down to OKC....think about it. Just think about it. :)

So here is sad little tid-bit of adoption related news- When we got our letter from Mary at Gladney stating that we were officialy waiting for a referral, it said that we could be waiting up to 3 months for a referral. Well, we were stoked about that because the latest word on the street has been that it is up to a 5 month wait for a referral- so we didn't really know why our supposed wait was shorter but...we went with it! I finaly ended up emailing Mary about it just to see why the deal was and why our wait would be different than others, to see if it was a mis-print or what. She emailed me back super fast and I saw that the email header was, "I sincerely sincerely appologize for the typo..." Noooooo! O.K. it wasn't life changing news or anything, my brain knew that it had to be a mistake but this little heart was secretly hoping that maybe, just maybe the wait would be shorter than that. Oh well, no permanent damage done.I think next week after Malak's shower I will post pics of his nursery- it is coming together quite nicely and I want to know what you all think of it. I am still in need of things to put on the walls....hmmm. And I am still in need of a baby to put in it....hmmm.

Ooops. I may have just deleted a few comments...if it was yours- redo!

That invitation rocks (pardon the pun)! I had my baby shower about three months before Bennett was born, so I don't think it's weird. I'm a planner, too. You have my full support. The only tricky thing will be getting clothes that are for the right season in the right size, and most of that can be worked around with a cute hoodie.

I wish I could be there for your rock star baby shower--that is definitely the best baby shower theme I've ever heard of! I hope you have tons of fun and haul in a bunch of great stuff to spoil your sweet baby with!

Drew said...

tara, i wonder why you deleted those comments. maybe it was because they called you out on ripping off all those words from someones email!...but maybe not.

I have the best idea for your walls! wishing well art!! I wish i was going to be there for your shower...but i think it might only be for the ladies? Maybe I'll send you a little somethin somethin from H&M...

Eric & Tara said...

Haha. very funny Andrew...don't hate me just because I called you out! What's done is done you little stinker.
You have an H&M?! Lucky dog! Oh, you have to get Malak something from there! I so jealous.

I went to Carey's shower today and thought we should crash yours! You are going to have a blast. Enjoy the moment. Yes our referral dates should be very close. It would be fun to meet up and travel together! Blessings

Timm and Jennifer said...

Love the invites! We had our baby shower already too...I am also a major planner. It worked out great! Have an awesome time.

Amy said...

I can't wait till your shower...Good times will be had. Its going to be a weekend of baby showers. You know, you and Gina really ought to invite each other to their showers. She said the same thing you said...now you guys know each other and would have invited each other. Ginas is Saturday at 10:30am...Did you know she has a blog too? Her blog is listed on my page on the right side underneath non adoption blogs. :)

I am so incredibly thankful for you computer genius husband for taking a look at my computer.

emily said...

So much fun!! I look forward to seeing pictures from the shower:)

Renee said...

Hey Girl,
Love the invitation- that is so cool! Same goes for you Mrs. Rockstar! I'll be thinking of you on Sunday I'll be having a shower right about the same time. Sorry about the typo- thanks stinks :(

The Breedlove family said...

Tara...thank you so much for letting me know about Lindsay and Courtney. I have been working on a paper all day and haven't even checked. My heart is racing! This means that we are getting closer and closer. Woohoo! I ma so happy for them. Amy

HeidiD in CT said...

You do not look retarded - you look like a true rock star!! That stinks about the typo - I hope the shower and the bundles of goods help the wait! I'm jealous of all the bloggers close together. Have a great time!

Lindsey and Cortney said...

Love the shower theme!! It is so great!! Don't get freaked about the 3-5 month thing. We are just under 3 months (Friday is 3 months)! And they told us 3-5 also! The waiting pain is gone as soon as I saw his big brown eyes!!!

Gina said...

Hey Tara, I just got your comment on my blog! How fun! Yes, we are definitely meeting tonight at the Queen of Sheba...will you guys be there? Amy told me yesterday about the misprint with the 3 month thing, totally a bummer. I know God will bring Malak home soon, but I'm sure the wait is so hard! By the way, your invitation is so cute!!

Did you not get the email I sent out yesterday regarding housechurch tonight? I am worried now that it didn't go for some reason.

Have fun times tonight....I will miss you guys!

Jen said...

Jillienne said...

Love your rock star invites! Our paperwork went in about the same time as yours (different agency).....wishing us both super quick referrals. Have a great shower!

Nice to "meet" you! ha ha, blogging is crazy, huh?
