High Five for Friday!

Another week has come and gone. It's hard to believe there is only one week left of February.

Things are seeming to be few and far between on our blog these days, I'm sorry about that! There really aren't many updates to share. Until we have more excitement going on, here are the top five moments of the week.

1. It's my birthday tomorrow! Yes, I'll be the big 2-3. It's even more exciting that my wonderful friend, Anneli is coming to visit. We met while we were both abroad in Thessaloniki, Greece and became insta-friends. She's one of those people I can talk to about anything and everything. And share a twin bed, too.

2. This weather. I know I've talked about weather in the last several posts, but come on. How it it possible to have rain, then snow, then 45° sun. It just makes no sense. Yesterday we had a terrible blizzard with thunderstorms, yes, thunderstorms, hail, and four inches of wet, heavy snow. With this crazy weather though, we've had two beautiful 55° days. Spring is coming, I just know it.

3. We got some IAG adoption news this week. The Department of Justice will be setting up a phone call with all the adoptive parents early next week. We haven't decided if we'll attend that, just because we weren't very far into the process. If anything, though, it may be good to just listen and understand. They also said they would be setting up a meeting with the Embasy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to check on the orphanages and facilities.

4. Friend time. I went out to have some pizza slices and a few beers with a good friend that I work with earlier this week. We're both pretty busy at work, and often there's so much going on, we don't get a chance to sit down and chat about life. It was so nice to get to talk with her and know what's going on in her life! And Old Chicago never disappoints. 

5. Adam and I will be flying to Mexico next week and we are so excited to take a break and get away! Both of us have been feeling extra stressed at work, so a nice long, warm vacation is just what we need. We started getting some things ready this week, but I have a feeling this coming week will be a little scrambled. But it will all be worth it when we're sitting on a beach. We're heading down to Cancun with Adam's parents, who are leaving this week. It will be fun to soak up the sun (and margs!) with them for an entire week.

Until next week, sending blessings your way.
