A Couple More Photos

Since my Momma was in town for the airport arrival home, we had a little birthday celebration for Ade with our immediate families.
He has decided to start hamming it up for the camera when someone is taking his photo. This is something he just started to do yesterday.
It was pretty funny and had everyone in stitches.

Confession Friday

I confess my favourite TV show is Modern Family - it makes me laugh a lot.

I confess I go through "my favourite color is...."phases - right now it is Grey! I love all things Grey!

I confess I can still remember the "When You Eat Your Smarties" song - "When you eat your smarties do you eat the red ones last? Do you suck them very slowly or crunch them very fast? Eat those candy-coated chocolates, but tell me when I ask, when you ear your smarties, do you eat the red ones last?"

I confess I love that Tova and Cinn got me started on Confession Friday. It is fun! Any some friends I know have even joined in!

I confess I don't like eggplant. I tried, I really did! But then one day I had an eggplant sandwich and threw up a little in mouth on the first bite...haven't touched the stuff since.

I confess I love Sushi but my hubby doesn't which means I never get to have it and that equals one sad lady!

I confess Friday nights are awesome. The week is done and you have the entire delicious weekend ahead of you.

I confess it is Friday so I am going to enjoy it!

Confession Friday

I confess I hate green candies. They remind me of boogers! Whether it be green life savers or jujubes, or smarties or suckers! I hate ALL the green candies...they are gross. Ha ha! Now you're all going to think of boogers when you eat green candies.

I confess I sometimes speak or write before I think and it gets me in trouble. I believe in honesty and sometimes I need to zip it and just say things in my mind.

I confess we are watching "The Long Way Round" right now with Ewan MacGregor and Charley Boorman and it is amazing! I now would love to go to Mongolia and spend some time there.

I confess we got Netflix this week and I am really enjoying it. Sure the movies are little older but hey for $8 a month it is all good by me.

I confess my friend posted this link - - on a blog comment the other day and it made laugh so hard. Seriously to the point where I was crying!

I confess I am tricking you - I might be gone already - then again maybe I am not - or maybe we have gone and come back already!

I confess January is usually the worst month for me...after the excitement and merriment of Christmas...January is usually boring and cold. But this January...this January is different!

I confess it is getting to be "that" time of the month and as usual I am getting over emotional about everything..for the love all things holy everything makes me cry!

I confess I love popcorn. I do not, however, love the little husks that get stuck in my teeth and then drive me crazy for hours...yes, I know floss will do the trick but I much prefer the challenge of trying to get those little buggers out with my tongue.

I confess I have officially been "chocolated out" why do I do it every year! Eat way to much and ruin it for myself.

I confess I could use a Mojito or a Martini right now - all this rushing around getting ready for a trip I may or may not be on right now has me wanting to sit and relax with a cocktail for a least 15 min.

I confess I am not ready - all this time spent moaning and groaning about our wait and subsequent trials and tribulations when...I SHOULD HAVE BEEN PREPARING!!!!!

I confess even if I was preparing all this time - I WOULD STILL FEEL UNPREPARED!

I confess I got my last vaccinations the other day for our trip and my arm was so sore - it felt like someone had been hitting in the arm repeatedly for an hour with a try swinging a kettle bell at the gym with said sore arm...ya! Not fun! I tried to explain my Typhoid arm was the problem but I don't think the peeps at the gym were buying it.

The Room

People have been asking to see our wee boy's room.

I've been waiting to post pictures because I didn't want to do it until we were absolutely certain we were bringing him home.

We are sure now.

The color is called "Raw Steel" by Cloverdale - because some have asked...

The Map of Africa with the cut out of Ethiopia I got from Peel Monkey

The animals of Africa I got from Etsy

The most excellent wall hanging with Ade's name on it is a gift from my very good friend Krista! She made it for us!

We had so much fun doing his room - we didn't want to go overboard because in the future we want him to decide how we wants his room to look but for now Mom and Dad get to be the designers.
