Shopping is good

So, to keep myself busy while waiting for a travel date, I am doing lots of organizing. First was the garage, then the kitchen, then the den. Now I am going to start the boy's room. I am excited to go through all the clothes and get stuff ready for Max. I love baby clothes.

Yesterday I went to Kohl's and they had lots of stuff on Clearance so I bought lots of cute little outfits. I am not completely sure what size he will be but I have a weight for him so I went off that. I figure I will bring the "iffy" stuff to Serbia and leave it at the orphanage if it doesn't fit. See, shopping makes things better. =-) I am actually not a big spender. I'm more the penny pincher type but I love to buy for my kids.

A sweet friend of mine is lending me a front pack snuggli, a swing and a bassinet. I gave everything away about 5 months before we decided to adopt. Of course. So, eventually I will need to get another high chair and a few things like that. Oh darn, more baby shopping. lol

I also wanted to publicly thank a certain person for a $500 donation to our adoption. It was quite a surprise to find out that it was from someone we don't know. I hope he reads this and knows how truly grateful we are. You are an amazing selfless person and we thank you for your support in our journey! Thanks to everyone who has helped us!

Shawnie,

I am praying that you get to travel soon! In the meantime, keep up with that "retail therapy"!
