July ICLWWelcome, friends. It's been awhile since I've actively participated in ICLW, but I'm ready to get back in the swing of it. For those of you that are new, visit my "Meet the Blogger" page. For a quick update of our adoption journey, stop by my "Adoption Timeline" page.  We're also getting ready to TTCAL.  We honestly never thought we'd get the chance, and were thrilled with the news! My most recent test results came back negative (which is good) and we've officially been given the green light. We're excited, hopeful and terrified all rolled into one. To catch-up on how we came to our decision, check out Baby Steps: Part One, Baby Steps: Part Two and Baby Steps: Part Three.

In addition, and on a completely unrelated note, I recently won a LOT of jewelry!! I am a Premier Designs Independent Consultant. This past week I attended our national rally in Texas. My name was drawn out of 8000+ women to receive the entire new line of fall/winter jewelry! It was my very own Christmas in July! I'll never make it to work on time again, thanks to all my new jewelry.  I had to carry it on the plane because I wasn't about to let thousands of dollars worth of jewelry out of my sight. Needless to say, they yanked me out of the security line and went through almost every single piece. Honestly, I think the woman just wanted to see it all. As she was going through it, she kept saying, "Oh, I love this! This is gorgeous! I need this!" LOL

So, that's it...me in a nutshell. I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs. If you don't already follow me, please do and I'll do the same for you!

Happy ICLW!
