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.
