MONKEY BUSINESS....and some other stuff

CHECK OUT MR. MONKEY!
 I'M TALKING A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!

 Had to show a side view so you can see his cute tail!


I SOOO can't wait for little K******* to meet his new friend!  This stuffed guy has so much personality!  Not that it matters, because I think our little guy will be carrying Mr. Monkey with him everywhere he goes (yes, of course once he starts walking, that is!), but his light blue, navy, green and white colors SOOOO go well in the nursery too!  


WANT ONE LIKE HIM?  You could get your sweet babe a monkey while also helping my friend, Faith, and her husband, Travis, to bring home their child from Ethiopia!  They are currently raising funds so they can send their Dossier to Ethiopia and get on that wait list!  The colors of stripes seem pretty much endless, or you can order one of the "original" sock monkeys!

HOW DO YOU GET ONE?  There are two ways to order one of these cute monkeys!
1.  www.etsy.com/shop/foryourchildandmine  click on this link and shop via her etsy shop.....OR......
2.  Email Faith at fegingerich@gmail.com

THEY ARE HOPING TO PLACE A MONKEY IN EVERY STATE!  TEN STATES HAVE ONE OF THESE CUTE LITTLE GUYS ALREADY!  WILL YOUR STATE BE NEXT?!?!?

Well, our Mr. Monkey will be sitting here patiently waiting the arrival of his soon-to-be lifetime friend.....our SON!!!!  And yes, he will be keeping mommy company when she sits in the nursery dreaming of the day that K******* will be in there with her!!!  THANKS, Faith!  I LOVE HIM!!!


On another note...............
THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR 
SWEET ANNIVERSARY WISHES!  

Our Anniversary was spectacular!!!  It started off with Jeff sneaking off and getting me my favorite coffee drink E-V-E-R......Skinny Milkyway from Moxie (were talking the 20oz!).....and an egg bagel sandwich from Blue Sky Bagels!  YUM!  And the card he gave me was SO SWEET!!!  The afternoon and evening included special things such as these:

THANK YOU, HONEY!

 Dinner at one of our FAVORITE SPOTS!.....

 J had a huge rack of ribs and I had steak on a sizzlin' rock!

 Dessert was fried ice cream on a stick!  For realz!

 GOTTA HAVE THE HONEY!!!!

Always room for ice cream, right!?!?  

{SIDE NOTE:  Ohhh, yes, that is a storm brewing in the background........and the doodles were left outside!  Hey, it was sunny and nice out when we left!  Worse part......we didn't even THINK of them getting all rained on, until almost home!}  

I gave Jeff his gift and card at dinner.  Although Jeff doesn't drink a whole lot, he really does enjoy trying new microbrews, so for the next year he is going to be part of the Beer of the Month Club!  He is going to receive four different microbrews every other month.  Great way to try new microbrews from all over the world, right!?  He loved it!

Then......while we were enjoying our wonderful evening of GREAT conversation and AWESOME food ~ the world's BEST guacamole, we were blessed by a surprise "hello." A sweet  lady, Lenora, introduced herself to us as she walked by our table.  It turns out that both she and her friend, Barb, recognized us because they go to our church and read my blog!

We had such a fun visit with these two precious women! 
This was taken at their table ~ all the Princess stuff Barb gave Lenora 
for her birthday ~ wanting her to feel like royalty.  Crown and all! 

It blessed our evening to come home and see all of the good wishes from so many of you via email, FB and here!  WE THANK EACH ONE OF YOU for joining us in our celebration of four wonderful years!

We look forward to so many more years together, and know that this year will be an especially sweet one, with bringing K******* HOME!!!!!
