Friday's Few Things

A few things...

31 Days of Adoption
During the month of October, I will be joining some other lovely bloggers in a challenge/adventure of writing every day about something that I am passionate about.  I'm sure it's no surprise to my regular readers that I am passionate about adoption.  So 31 Days of Adoption it will be!

I haven't thought out all 31 days.  It's actually bringing me back to my college days of waiting until the night before to write a paper...

I made a button for this series that I think is pretty cute. {I'm realizing right now that it's a tad-bit large} See it over there on the sidebar?  Feel free to post it on your blog too.  Maybe if I see my button on someone elses blog, it will motivate me to get moving on my posts.

I do have some ideas...

During my adoption series, I will spotlight :
* interviews with families that have adopted
* interviews with adults that were adopted
* relationships with birth family/open adoption
* resources for adoption
* my thoughts and feelings about our adoption journey

My hope is that you become better informed and begin considering how you can play a part in adoption.

If you have any ideas, topics or questions you have about adoption, feel free to let me know!

For Goodness Cakes!
My mom is now working full time at our cakery, which mean we will have shop hours, which means cupcakes are coming soon!  Starting October 4, you will be able to walk right in and buy some yummy cupcakes...6 flavors each day.  Stay tuned to our blog (you can also like us on facebook) to see what flavors will be offered each day.

Class Clown Sidekick
Max  is on the fast-track to be the kid in class that encourages the class clown.  As a former teacher, I will do my best to make sure this doesn't happen...

When our small group did a vacation bible school this summer, our little Max spotted the kid (out of 50 kids) shaking his head uncontrollably.  Max couldn't stop laughing which encouraged the kid to do it even more.  And yesterday, we were at a store and a kid was playing with a toy.  Apparently, playing with a toy is hilarious.  Max was giggling so loud that heads were starting to turn.  This kid was loving his easy-to-please audience.

See Wes Run
Saturday's the day.  Wes has been training hard for the mini.  I'm so proud of him already.  Click the button below to see why he's running.



  1. The 31 posts in 31 days is a great idea! I can't wait to read what you post. Also, I know a couple people who were adopted and then adopted kids also. Would you be interested in their contact information? I'm sure you have plenty of resources, so feel free to say no.
    This is Abby B. Again, this is making me be anonymous. So annoying.

  2. I look forward to reading. Just found your blog through MomsRelate.com. I'm nearing the end of a similar challenge myself. I'm currently doing NaBloPoMo: http://nablopomo.blogher.com
    Most of my posts have been about adoption. It has been challenging to post every day, but I'm glad I did it. (One more week to go!)
    Best of luck!

  3. I can't wait to read! And I just looked at your cake web site and wish you really closer!!! My husband is a HUGE Chicago Bears fan and I would love to order that Bears cake if you shipped it.
