BDT: "Is it straight?"
Me: "No a little to the left."
Me: "Oh I'm sorry, I meant right."
Me: "No... too far right go back a little more left."
Me: "Try spinning it a little left."
BDT: "&#(*@() @&$(*Q)@& #@%$^#!!!!!!!!"
Me: "It's looks great honey, just like that!"

And I've had a bit of writer's block. I've been uninspired. For so long I used this blog as an outlet for the frustration I had with waiting for Dreamgirl. Then, after returning home I was so joyful I used it to brag and spill all the details about her. Six months later I'm settled. No longer desperately needing to vent my fears and questions and anxieties about an impending adoption and a bit calmer from the hysteria of those first few months as a proud new mama. But I do like my blog. I love to scrapbook but don't find much time to do that either. This blog sort of acts as an on-line, public scrapbook of my life... my children growing and our adventures. So here I am... back in the saddle.
So... during my "va-cay" we celebrated our SIX MONTH ANNIVERSARY with Little Miss Dreamgirl. Can you believe it? Six months she's been ours. Six months since that day she walked into our lives in the arms of an orphanage nanny. Six months since we stepped of an United airplane as a new family... tired, jet-lagged and unsure of how our transition would go. And we made it! It feels like she's been here forever! And yet, at many times I am so aware of how much time we missed with her. She's growing so fast... and to think of those 9 months she grew without us watching. I am still mesmerized by her... I catch myself staring at her... her big, brown, almond eyes... her tiny, little, peanut body... her beautiful thin fingers. She's so smart. She's funny. She's mine.
Be back soon, friends... and I promise!

- FREE shipping BOTH ways. They send shoes to you free & if they don't fit you print off an UPS shipping return label... at home... and drop the box off at the nearest UPS store... which in my case is right next to Publix, to which I go just about on a daily basis. So, the price you see is the price you pay!
- They are delivered to your door via UPS at LIGHTNING SPEED. Lightning I say. When you check-out choose the FREE SHIPPING option... which says like 3-5 business days. Do not be fooled by that. THE SHOES WILL BE AT YOUR HOME THE NEXT DAY! It's amazing... it's like they have tiny shoe elves who work through out the night and fly on Santa-like sleds to bring them straight to your door. I ordered my mom some Ugg boots. They arrived at her home around 5 p.m. They were too small. I took them home with me after eating supper with she & my Daddy and after my kids went to bed got on the Zappos site and ordered her a bigger pair. This was like 9 p.m. The new boots were at her house by 5 p.m. the NEXT DAY! For FREE! And then I returned the smaller pair... for FREE!
- They will credit your credit card quickly. This company is about CUSTOMER SERVICE and they've got a loyal one in me for FO SHO!
Did you know there are NO early detection devices for Pancreatic Cancer. PC is often known as a "silent disease" because in it's early stages it produces NO easily recognizable symptoms. Therefore, PC is usually not diagnosed until it is in ADVANCED stages. Warning signs to look for include weight loss, jaundice, pain in the upper abdomen and/or back and diarrhea.

And where??? you may ask, is My Dreamgirl on her First Halloween looking all cute in her fuzzy, wuzzy bunny rabbit costume? Here she is....
Did you know that Pancreatic Cancer research is at the level TODAY where breast cancer research was in the 1930's??? That's pretty pathetic for the cancer that has the highest mortality rate among all cancers!
