Well...Monday did NOT deliver!

What can I say? Monday was not the day I had hoped. Others with the same LOA as mine and in the same agency received their TA's yesterday. I am happy for them, but it was very disappointing to learn that mine was not in the stack! That pretty much took the possibility of traveling on the 14th away. I couldn't even get a straight answer on whether there would be a travel group on the 21st. Today, I did learn that those who received their TA's yesterday will not be traveling on the 14th because there were no consulate appointments to be had. That is very good news for me. Now, our TA just has to come in with time to be added to that travel group. If we don't travel on the 21st, we wouldn't be able to go until Feb. 18th. Wesleigh's birthday is Feb. 12, and I can't even imagine having to wait that long! We're praying and expecting our TA any day!!

The new pictures of Wesleigh have not come yet :( Ann is working on getting them, but haven't gotten them yet.

The wall decal hasn't made it here yet :(, but I did find a cute pink polka dot glider rocker for the nursery...cheap!! So that was good.

I also found out that the chandelier should be here Thursday!! Yay!!

And the best pick-me-upper this week? Just look at my new "do"!!! Keisha was so sweet to do this for me. She is so talented! I can't look at it without chuckling at the boys with that pink frame around them. I absolutely LOVE it!! Thank you Keisha!!


I'm adding these pics because this is how I'm spending my time...girlying everything up (even things that are already girly ;)I know that some of you will think that I ruined the lamp by adding the trim, but I LOVE it! I'm one of those "the more the better" kind of girls. I bought this lamp on clearance a couple of years ago, and have been waiting a long time to be able to use it!


Hoping my GREAT day is just around the corner!!!

Sorry I had to go today. i will call tomorrow. The room is looking so darned cute! I think that is the same dresser that Kate has!!!!! I painter hers a blue/gray but I swear it looks the same. I am going to e-mail you a photo tomorrow. I bought hers at an antique shop in VA.


Sorry about the TA but it might be a little blessing in disguise. I would love for my two wonderful friends to meet in CHina!!!! WIsh I could be there with y'all.
