The video above is for a new show on TLC about couponing. At first I was skeptical but after looking into it I am a believer. I am a stay at home mom so anything that can save me money is a blessing. Extreme couponing here I come!!!

Important Tax Information

Hi all,

I came across these websites and thought I should pass this important information on.  On December 31, 2010 the Bush tax cuts will fully expire unless Congress renews them.  Please check out the following sites and see for yourself.  If these tax cuts expire we should all expect to see a huge increase in our taxes.  I don't know how you all feel but I know I am sick and tired of working so hard just for our government to put their big hand out and expect more and more of my money.  
Please know that my motivation for posting this information is not to sway you either way but to provide information on the topic.  If you agree that the tax cuts should continue please sign the petition found at
Here are some sites to check out...

Trade-In Event at Babies R Us

Hi everyone!

I was flipping through one of my magazines and saw an advertisement from Babies R Us.  They are offering a trade-in event from Aug. 27 - Sept. 19.
During this time frame you can bring in used items such as car seats, strollers, cribs, high chairs, etc. and get 25% off any new item from participating brands. This sounds like a great deal so I wanted to pass it along.

I just wanted to say thank you to all our family and friends for your positive feedback and support.  I'm so excited I have 4 followers!  I promise to try my best to keep this blog interesting and relevant. 

Shortly I will be uploading a music video for a beautiful song about adoption.  It brought me to tears!!!  I hope you enjoy.

Steven Curtis Chapman - When Love Takes You In (Concept...

Welcome to my blog!

Well here goes...

I am excited to share our adoption story and my thoughts on being a wife, mother and Christian woman.  I guess I should start by sharing a little background info.  I have been married for over seven years to my best friend, Todd.  We share a wonderful life together and are blessed to have each other.  

We have always wanted to have children and approximately a year ago we started researching adoption.  We spoke with couples who have adopted, met with various companies offering adoption services and finally we found Michelle Dettman from Adoption Answer.  She truly is the answer to our prayers and as of June 12, 2010 we have been contracted with her.  We are now waiting to be matched with a birth mom.

Our journey to become parents has been difficult and emotion filled.  At times the wait is unbearable but we have faith that the path we have chosen is what God has designed for us.  Please pray for us to be strong, patient and faith filled.  Thanks you for sharing this journey with us.

Every good and perfect gift comes from above.  James 1:17  

Our Happy Family
