Two Days!

So, yeah, Sophie's adoption will be final in TWO DAYS!!!!! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I am so excited!! Friday morning (bright and early) we have us a date at the court house!!! (I fully realize that there are more !!!'s in this paragraph to get passing marks from any English teacher in the free world, but seriously, y'all .... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't stop myself!) (and, I just said "y'all" - like I am Beth Moore or something!!!) (BTW - Beth, if you are reading this - 'cause, ya know, we ARE PBFF's - you are totally invited to the adoption!!!)

My buddy SuperModel took me shopping last night. She is like having my own personal Stacy London/style guru. She sent me into that dressing room with more clothes than I currently have in my closet - well, OK, not really, but at least more non t-shirt/non sweats/non hoodie/non jean clothes! (lookie there, another !) We found a very cute outfit in a store that is closing this month. Everything was half off the lowest price. Can I get an AMEN? Original sticker value of said clothes (a blouse, pair of pants, bracelet and hoodie shirt) was $143.00, the markdown sticker price was $76.96, I got 50% off of that - plus a coupon for an additional 50% off of THAT price for the blouse. All told, I paid $32.82!!! Seriously, does anyone else hear the angels singing in the background? And, I really think that it is because SuperModel totally prayed over the clothes before I went into the fitting room, and because God cares about the little things too, He answered our prayers! And I even got to head over to payless to get a pair of shoes - very cute black heels, that in every other size cost a dollar more than they cost in my size!!!

Even the small stuff friends!

Plus, the outfit totally coordinates with the dress my mommy got Sophie for the adoption. Oh, yeah, He is just cool like that!

And, yeah, Sophie is 11 months old now. I can hardly stand it. She is more of her own little person every single day. She is fun and funny and sweet and charming and loving and social and ... I could go on. She is less of a little baby every day, and that makes my heart weep a little, but seeing who she is becoming is an adventure that I would not trade for anything it the whole entire world.

I love you Sophie Bug!!!!

And, finally, today is my sister Marla's birthday! My sister is A-MA-ZING!!! When I was a little girl, I just wanted to be her. And, in many ways, I still do. She is beautiful in every way and everything that a big sister should be. She has a blog, and is absolutely sure that I am the only one who reads it. (Therefore she hardly ever posts) So, if you wouldn't mind heading over HERE and wishing her a happy day. And, tell her to post a stinking picture of Duncan already!!!
