This week seemed to take forever!!
Honestly, the time has been flying by as of late, but this week seemed like it was never going to end.
When we were in Whistler, one of the sponsors of breakfast on the Sunday left these on everyone's chair. When the door to the room was opened for us to go in I almost lost my mind. "GIRAFFES " I squeaked - Yvan went beet red - "IT MUST BE KARMA OR A SIGN" I screeched - ya know, Giraffe's - Africa - adoption - anyways!!! Since not a lot of people went to the breakfast there were quite a few left over. Like the mad woman that I am, I scooped up as many as my little arms could carry and beat it outta there like a thief in the night. The looks I got as I ran to the elevators to take my loot to our hotel room was priceless...I actually think I might have set off a stampede because Yvan said the ladies started like pouncing like lions after I left for the rest of unclaimed prizes. Hee Hee - wished I had stuck around long enough to see it but I wasn't risking it! :)
So, Yvan and I decided we had found the theme to our baby's room - eeeeeee! Then on Saturday we came home to find our very close friends, Chad and Lori, sitting on our front step with this!
I think she is looking for her babies from Whistler!
She was adamant about getting in and once in she wasn't going to let us in no way! no how!
Chad even asked nicely!
She finally relented and even posed for a few pictures with us!
Yup - I definitely think we have a giraffe theme going!
Last night was girl's night out!
There is nothing like getting together with the girls to talk adoption....I am sure all the people around us were amazed at our little group...we talked a lot...sometimes one at a time...sometimes all at once and sometimes in groups of 2 or 3. It is so great to spend time with others who like to talk the talk and as Sandi says "don't get the glazed over eyes". Did I mention the dessert...no...well...let me tell you - there was apple crisp, New York style cheese cake, mint cheesecake, turtle cheesecake, chocolate carrot cake (thanks for sharing Cheryl), peanut butter pie and chocolate cake - Sandi's infamous dessert was about half the size of ours....it really should have been a more generous slice Sandi!! ;)
As always, I was wound up after our night out - thoughts of travel to Ethiopia, what to pack, hotels to stay in, and which sights to see whirred thru my mind. Not to mention that I was extremely itchy after I got home from all the talk about lice, scabies, Giardia and Tinea Capitis but I learned A LOT! Thanks ladies - next night out is in June right?
So, guess what I did when I got home ? - curled up on the couch to watch T.V.that's what. And guess what was on? You've Got Mail with Meg Ryan - bang!!! out like a light!
