Paypal or Something Else?

Hey guys!  I need your help!  We are doing a fundraiser to help us with all the adoption fees.  I know there is someway to set up a paypal account to accept donations.  I don't know how to do it.  Is there anyone out there who has set up a paypal or other online account to accept donations for your infertility or adoption?  Please help!

Here's a link to our flyer! We are sooo excited!

Catching You Up...

So, I FINALLY finished my letter.  I sent it into our adoption worker and she told me it was too long...Go figure.  So.  It is officially done now and on it's way to be completed with Bethany.  We just got our completed home study.  So just waiting for them to get the letter and all our pictures and video and we are official!!

I've got to call Debbie in GR to make sure she knows we're ready to go on the embryo front.  OH MY GOSH!!!  THINGS ARE MOVING!!!!!!!  WOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!

Awards, YAY!

I have been nominated for 2 awards.  Lex awarded me with the Versatile Blogger award.  Thanks Lex!  OK. So what I have to do is share 7 things about myself  and then pass the award on to 7 people.

1.  I tried out for the Mickey Mouse Club when I was in 6th grade.  I was obsessed with the show and would always daydream about being on the show.  That was BEFORE Britney, Justin and Christina were on it.  Needless to say, I didn't have what it took!

2.  Since I was about 7, I have been an MTV junkie.  After I turned 30, I tried to stay away, telling myself that I was too old and that I needed a new show.  I have grown up a little, but I can't tear myself away from The Challenges, True Life, 16 and pregnant and Teen Mom. (I am addicted to Teen Mom, I think mostly because Catelynn and Tyler are using the same adoption agency we use and we see things and places we know since we live in the same area.  Okay, okay, I'm just addicted!)

3.  I have a fear of basements and the dark.  I don't think this is a normal fear, but a fear nonetheless.  I will not go downstairs at night if I am home by myself.  Don't you know only BAD things can happen then! 

4.  My grandfather was a mortician, so I am not afraid of death.  He lived above the funeral home and we would go over there all the time.  We just had to "keep it down" if he had a viewing.  My favorite was when he would come upstairs to yell at us for running around and told "it sounds like a herd of elephants up here!"  The best was when he didn't have a viewing, we had a HUGE area to run and play. 

5.  My dad is number 2 out of 12 siblings.  I love having a huge family.  There are around 40 cousins ages ranging from 35-2.  It's pretty cool.  Because of my dad's side, I always dreamed of having a large family...

6.  I love make up and one day want to go to beauty school to be a make up artist.  I would probably have to go for esthetician, because I have no desire to do hair.  Although maybe that would be a good thing and I could learn how to actually make my hair look half way decent!

7.  Eventually I think Jesse and I will be moving to one of the Carolinas.  We LOVE it down there and Jesse keeps saying it's part of his 10 year plan.  I don't know why, but I feel like that could become our new home!

Jess also nominated me for the Lovely Blogger.  Thanks Jess!  I'm going to cheat and combine these together...I hope you don't mind.  The rules of the "One Lovely Blog Award" are as follows:
Accept your award and post it on your blog along with a link to the person who has sent it to you. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered. You must contact the person to let them know that you have chosen them to receive the award.

Okay, so I'm going to cheat a little and combine these 2 wonderful awards:

1.  Kelli over at Life, Love and the Miracle of Adoption
2.  Amber over at Life in the Last Frontier
3.  Lori over at Everyday Blessings
4.  Ashlee over at Savor the Moment
5.  Em over at Snowflakes are One of a Kind
6.  Kel over at From You and Me to Family of Three
7.  Laura over at The Best is Here
8.  Tammy over at Tammy's Journey
9.  Jen at Womb for 1 More
10.  Rachel at The Adoption Chronicles
