Big Winnings and Frustration!

Sorry it took me so long to post this. The last week has been CRAZY! Well, we actually got to pick out the furniture we wanted. The furniture store was having this amazing package deal for living room sets with tvs and game systems. So, we decided to get a living room package. We got a sofa, love-seat, 3 end tables, 2 lamps, a rug and a tv. The game system that was supposed to come with it was a PS3, but while we were there one of the signs said your choice of a PS3, XBox 360 or a WII!!! I was soooo excited when the lady told me, "yeah, of course, you can have a wii, if you want!!!" WOOO HOOO! I swear I was more excited over the wii more than anything else. (Although Peanut is deathly afraid of the damn thing! It's hilarious!)

So, it all got delivered last week. However, the sofa wouldn't fit downstairs where we wanted it, so they without question, let me trade it in for another love-seat. We're hoping in the next few months to get the downstairs set up as another tv area. When we have people over now, it gets a little crowded in front of the tv, so we're excited to get it all set up downstairs. It was quite an interesting week! I still don't have any info about the Oprah tickets yet, but I just sent the lady an email! I'll let you know what I find out!

We have made a HUGE decision on the baby front. We have decided to do the embryo adoption. We have begun to get all our things in order, however, there are a few questions I have about some of the paperwork and I have called the guy 3 times, but haven't heard anything. It's so frustrating to me because now that we have come to this decision, I want to start charging full steam ahead, but we are stuck at this point until we get some things answered. I hope that he'll get back to me soon!!!! UGH!

I was also pretty bummed about Sock It To Me week. This was my first time participating and I spent the whole time finding cute socks for my buddy, but I still have not gotten my socks yet. I keep running out to the mail box like a kid rushing to the tree on Christmas, only to find...NOTHING! I hope I get my socks soon!!! :(
