So now my little post about the blog doesn't seem so important. This was the main point!
DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA!!
Why watch a Soap Opera when you can read the good in bed blog! I am not talking about the posts, I am talking about the comments. They post about oral sex and not one negative comment! (by me either by the way :)
they post about pedicures, and shaving, etc. and the claws came out!!
The comments were a fun read, and
I do not dare say that I quite favor pedicures now, I never knew how much controversy having a Oriental that doesn't speak English painting your toes while she makes fun of you would make!!

I told Malen I don't care what he said, I had a feeling inside. About an hour later the phone rang again!! Juanita is in labor and at the hospital, she should have the baby really soon!!!
We were SO excited!! But instead of sitting by the phone, my friend came over and we went to lunch, all I could think about was Juanita. After lunch she and I went shopping and bought some baby needs, I had piles of clothes, but she said, you need the necessities, so we got wash clothes, diapers, nail clippers, and such!
We come home and Malen is pacing, "where have you been, Lynn has called here 3 times, but won't tell me anything until you get home!! "
We call Lynn back as fast as we can, and soon we are on a conference call with Tammie, who says Juanita has something she wants to tell us!!
Within a minute, she has Juanita on the phone, and Juanita tells us the baby is here! She told us about the labor and how cute Sky is, then Tammie slips and said "how much does he weigh?"
HE weigh?? WHAT? So I said, "now it is a girl right?" NO, IT IS A BOY!! Juanita announces to us. We all started laughing, we were so shocked, the ultra sound said it was a girl, we had tons and tons of girl clothes.
It was the best surprise of our lives, we were in shock for a few days, but it was so fun.
That was also the longest weekend of our lives also, I had peace in my heart and I knew that it would all work out, it was just LONG!!
I will post about the day we met Sky on Gotcha Day! As you all know, we have just got home from a FABULOUS Mexican Riviera cruise, and I have SO many photos and stories, but I am overloaded with laundry, and such so it will have to wait, but I wanted to share Sky's birth story since he just had his 8th birthday yesterday!!
We love you Sky!! You are an amazing little spirit, your smile makes my heart melt, you are so smart, and sweet. Your sister may disagree on the sweet part, but we know it is there! (on our cruise, Sky met this little buddy, and his buddy told me all Sky talks about is his sister!) Sky has blessed our lives and taught us so much, he is a miracle to me. To Tyler and Juanita, Judy, Anita and all our amazing birth family, we love you all so much, you have enriched and blessed our lives, we are so grateful for the love you have for us and Sky and Solee. I am grateful for the openness we have, and think of all of you as family.

My friend and I went to Iggy's today for lunch and they had signs all over, that due to that law, they could not serve alcohol! So I decided I would play a joke on our waitress, and I ordered a Corona, expecting her to say, "Oh I am sorry, ma'am, we can't serve beer today!" No, that is not what she did, she wrote it down on her little tab!
Fear started to fill my stomach, what if she brings me back a beer! What will I do! So I sheepishly said, "Never mind, I'll just have a Diet Coke!"
I have no idea if she knew I was bluffing and was trying to call me on it, or if she had just got to work and didn't know they couldn't serve beer! I was going to let her leave, with my beer order, thinking she'd come back and say sorry ma'am! But I wimped out, and got my safe Diet Coke!!

So after reading Brittany's blog, it brought back lots of memories! I wanted to look for my scrapbook page that we did for LDS family services, Let me tell you all right up front, that Brittany's is MUCH CUTER! and back 8 years ago, they didn't tell us any rules about the scrapbook page, so mine would probably go in the hall of shame! As you can see, I am NOT a scrapbooker!! In fact they didn't even call it a scrapbook page back then it was a photo collage! Yes, I am showing my age!So no matter the pages, your birth family will find you, I am living proof! LOL! You must click on the pages to get the full effect...........
I couldn't find the first scrapbook page for our first adoption, but I could find the one we did for the second, I remember we had both pages filled with Sky and our Social Worker said, you have WAY too many photos of Sky in here, the birth mom with think you have no room for another baby, so we did one page of us and one page of us with Sky!
My advice to Brittany is just be yourself! We also had to give a portrait of ourselves and Malen had a Northface coat on, the social worker asked us if we wanted a more formal photo, we later found out by our birth mom that, because of that photo was one of the first reasons she liked us and was drawn to us, the birth father loved to ski and always wore North Face jackets!!
By the way, November is National Adoption month, so I think I will be posting some more adoption stories this month!! Good Luck Brittany

After bragging about my weight loss and the cute boy's checking a mom out, I have fallen of the wagon! We went out of town for a few days, we were getting new hardwood floors put in, we had to move all our furniture into the kitchen and bedrooms, so we had no living area, and my kids followed the guy around the house, while he pulled the carpet out, so we figured best get out of his hair!
We had lots of fun, I ate out a few times and snacked a little vowing to go strict when I got home. OPPS! I forgot the next day was Halloween, and I have 4 bags of snickers, baby ruth's, butterfingers, smarties, and anything else full of fat and sugar, I have pigged out! SO, it was Halloween, Saturday I'll start fresh, nope! All day today, I was grabbing a sweet something out of the kids bags, BLAH! I need help!
A blogging Intervention, PLEASE!

One of my favorite day's of the year was yesterday, October 30th.
This is what happens at our house, on that day.. I make homemade chicken noodle soup, and homemade rolls (which is saying alot for me!) When we sit down to eat it, this is the story that is told.
8 years ago tonight, I was shopping at a store with daddy, I bought a cute little baby blanket that was red and blue, daddy asked "what are you going to do if it is a girl?" "It is not, it is a boy!" walking down a few more isle's I got a really weird feeling. "Malen we have to go home, RIGHT NOW!" So we paid for our blanket and whatever else we had put in our shopping cart and headed home. Nothing new at home, so I just started to make dinner, I was making rolls and yummy homemade chicken noodle soup, when there was a knock on the door.
It was our social worker, Lynn. He walks in the house all smiles and said, "guess what I have in my hand?" He was holding an envelope. "I have your baby in my hand!" "what? We are confused!!" Lynn hands us the envelope and said you have a baby coming in 2 weeks, a birth mother picked you!! we opened the envelope to a printed out piece of paper. It said basically nothing, it read due date: November 15th. Sex: girl Birth mother: Wanita (sorry Juanita, but they spelled it wrong!!) Which is why I spelled it wrong at first!!
face to face: Nov. 1st in Provo
Lynn peeked his head into the blue nursery we had been getting all ready, because I knew this was coming, yeah yeah, laugh all you want, but I could feel it, and I knew. "you may want to repaint!" Lynn laughed and Malen said, "Wendy, you said you knew it was going to be a boy!"
I don't think we even ate our chicken noodle soup that night, we were too excited and nervous! But we have had it for the last 8 years to celebrate Chicken noodle soup day!!
I love you so much Sky, you are our little miracle and blessing!! I love you so much Juanita for giving us the opportunity to be Sky's mom and dad and trusting us!!
Happy Chicken Noodle Soup DAY!!!!!!!!

and I must admit I was looking fine in my Miss Me jeans, and Juicy Couture heels, when I walked past a table of 3 college kids. One of them said "Wow, she' is hot!" Then the other two were like Yeah, Man! Trivial I know, I am happily married, but for some reason when three, 20 something boys think a 30 something mom is hot, it made me feel HOT! After there comment, it reminded me of how much hotter I can be, so I sat down at Chili's and ordered a side salad!

Anyways, Kristal tagged me, I am supposed to add 7 things about myself, I know I have gotten a few tags lately and I have been bad at doing them! Sorry to all my tag your it's! I just did a post on my house of art blog not too long ago like this, it was 7 quirky things about me: you can click on that link, if you missed it, and really want to know more about my bad habits!
I think this one is just 7 things about me, you all might not know
- we live 3 months of the year in Scottsdale, Arizona (we are not going back this year and I already have anxiety about staying here ALL WINTER LONG!)
- I had 4 miscarriages, both of my babies are adopted, I rarely tell people, even if they ask
- I weigh myself twice a day, or after going to the bathroom.
- I do anything I can to avoid cleaning.
- We travel so much, I get bored when I am home for too long.
- I am very easy going, it takes a lot to get me mad, stressed or worried about anything, which drives my husband crazy! because I don't worry enough.
- we have 4 llama's, 2 bunnies and 2 dogs! and I actually am sad that the "Girls Next Door" broke up.
There you have it, you can judge me all you like, but I still look hot in my bikini on the side bar!
