Mother's Day 2013 & An Adoption Update

Happy {belated} Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a fun day celebrating you, your moms, your friends who are moms etc!

We started the day out at church, followed by lunch with my family and then we came home to r-e-l-a-x! I'm so lucky to have a husband who pampers me everyday and Mother's Day was no exception! He cleaned the house, emptied the dishwasher, fed and changed the kids...everything! I didn't lift a finger!

My awesome husband and kids got me a belt that I had really, really been wanting. Also, I kinda need it. In the last 7 weeks, I've lost 13lbs! No, this is not one of those infamous spam twitter ads. I really have lost 13lbs in 7 weeks. I've talked about it a bit on twitter and had request after request to blog about it, so I'll do that this week.

I've also been asked for an adoption update. If you follow me on twitter, I tweet updates pretty regularly (it's just easier to do that there). We came pretty close to being chosen recently and also got feedback on why we weren't chosen, which believe it or not, was nice to know. After being turned down 7 or 8 times now, without much feedback other than "you already have kids" it was nice to hear more detailed feedback. This time, it came down to the fact that we were too far away from the state the birth mom resides in, and she had hopes of being able to visit. We have decided to enlist the help of someone who reached out to me and in time, I will definitely be sharing much more about that.

Hopefully I'll have that weight loss post up for you on Wednesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
