Mid November

We've been having a busy month! It's seems like we've had something going on most every night. Nate had an awesome birthday. We had his family over for some ice cream on his actual birthday and later that weekend we had date night. Nate chose Mexican food for date night and then we hit up a new donut shop. Nate told me he was going in for two donuts and came out with a half dozen. He said that there were too many good choices.

Nate's best birthday present was our adoption approval and we were so excited. This photo was taken that night, we were so excited. You can check out our adoption profile here.

The week after Nate's birthday, he had to travel for work. He only travels for work like a twice a year, which is nice for me. This trip was another one to Texas. He flew back in on Wednesday and we went straight from the airport to Park City to spend some time with Nate's family. Nate's dad has a time share up there and we had fun just hanging out with family. However, I failed to take a single picture!

Since it's an off year for Thanksgiving with Nate's family, they decided to do a Pre-Thanksgiving this past Sunday. Nate and I were in charge of a pie and stuffing. I was grateful for an easier food assignment since I've got this darn cold. I made a white chocolate cream pie per Nate's request and he really seemed to enjoy it. The dinner turned out so nice. Everyone pitched in and made it a good night, we missed Zak, Domonique, and Clementine though!

Well that's what we've been up to so far this month, and we've got more plans still to come!

We're Approved!!!

We just heard that we are officially approved to adopt with LDS Family Services! As soon as our profile is up on the website I'll post a link. We are so ecstatic! Now we just need everyone to spread the word so we can find a match and start our family!

Happy Birthday Nate!

Happy Birthday to my handsome husband! Yes, today is Nate's birthday and we've been celebrating for 12 days. We kept tradition alive and had the 12 Days of Nate, where he gets a small gift or treat each day for the 12 days leading up to his birthday. He loves it. Tonight we're celebrating some more and having some family over for dessert. I hope Nate has a wonderful day today and that he feels super loved!

Mustache Dache

Yesterday morning Nate ran in the annual Mustache Dache at Thanksgiving Point. He had a great time and was able to run with some friends and family. I did have to offer him $150 to shave his mustache off before church today though. After seeing his crazy mustache I think you'll agree it was money well spent! Good job Nate!

Happy Digital Scrapbook Day!

Yay, it's digital scrapbook day! It's always the first Saturday in November. My favorite hobby is digital scrapbooking and I love it! To celebrate, my favorite digital scrapbooking store is having a sale. Check them out at Sweet Shoppe Designs. I also highly recommend Photoshop Elements which you can find here. You can check out my digital scrapbooking pages by clicking on the link on my sidebar.

It's also the first day of Nate! Since Nate's birthday falls on the 12th, we always celebrate the 12 days of Nate. He gets a small gift or treat each day for the 12 days leading up to his birthday. It's tradition.
