Friday Faves!

Friday, September 7, 2018

Yay it's Friday!!!  This has been a short week for students, but don't sometimes the shortest weeks feel like the longest?  It's been a busy week for us on the home front, too.  My mom and I painted the nursery and we've got two huge fundraisers this weekend!  My MIL's sisters are having a massive two day yard sale today and tomorrow and tomorrow my sister is doing mini sessions for our adoption fundraiser!

It's been a BIG week!!!  This week is all about adoption, and I'm going to make sure that my posts don't revolve around that, but this week was all about it.

 Tuesday we mailed off all of our paperwork to our consultant group!  It's so crazy to think about all the paperwork we did and all the drug tests, physicals, fingerprinting, etc. that we had to do and now it's all done!!  So now we're waiting to be deemed active!

 My friend Hailey went with me to mail off our stuff since Dustin had to work.  I had asked her to take one picture of me with the package and she basically took a picture of every move I made 😂  I need to do a blog post on it next week because it is so funny!

 I did an IG story last week wearing this top and I had a few questions about it.  It's Loft from a few years ago but I saw on another blogger's try on session that Loft has a similar style out now.  I tried looking for it on their website, but it may not be online yet.

One of the girls in my small group gave me this boba wrap and I decided to try it out the other night.  I remembered I had my Bitty Baby in storage so I used it.  Baby wearing feels foreign to me, but it's something that Dustin and I will both be doing!

If you're looking to adopt domestically and need a profile book designed, I highly recommend Little Ampersand Co!  Kendahl was so easy to work with and she worked quickly.  There is no way that I could have designed what she did.  She did such a beautiful job and I can't wait for these birth moms to get to look at our book!

You've got one week left to purchase an adoption t-shirt before we place our order!  
$20 = youth med-xl and adult small-xl
$22 = 2xl-3xl
$5 shipping, if needed ......make sure you don't mark that you're buying goods and services because we lose money that way!
I'll send out details to everyone who buys a shirt, but I'm going to gather pictures of people wearing our shirts and post those!  It's been so neat seeing how far our story has reached!


  1. That book looks beautiful! I could never get the hang of baby wearing; it just killed my back and I ended up holding my babies and learning to do everything one handed.

  2. Your book is perfect and I can only imagine the prospective mother's hearts you're going to touch!! And I must say, that Boba wrap looks made for you!! Precious!!
