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!
