Pom-Pom’s Everywhere, and I’m Not Even a Cheerleader

Haha, look at my tree topper.  That crazy thing wants to stay up there sideways!  I am loving these multi-green pom-pom babies!  I actually broke down and bought a pom-pom maker, because I noticed they are so much fuller when you use it.

It’s a pretty crazy contraption, but it works!  You can wrap multiple colored yarn and make mixed colored pom-poms.  I just took a needle and some white yarn and strung them up, then hung them with tape on our bookcases.

I am in LOVE with our mega-huge engineer print.  I know you’ve seen them all over the blog-a-sphere.  I got mine printed at Staples.  I think it cost $8, then bought a piece of black foam board from there for $6.99.  I cut both to size and then used Elmer’s spray adhesive to attach the print.  You will need two people to lay the print onto the foam when it is sticky.  For ours I didn’t have to worry about hangers for the back because it is propped up on the bookshelf.  I actually pasted another picture on the backside, so if I get bored of this one, I can just flip it!

Just a quick foster care update.  We had our final homestudy today.  We did great.  It wasn’t scary and only took a few minutes.  Our case worker will be out of town for the next two weeks, but after the holidays will write up our report.  She then has to get it approved for us to foster, and we are done!  Then it will be just waiting for the children.  I’m not sure how long all of this will take, but I’m so relieved our part is over.

We are planning on buying a crib to put in our room on Christmas break, from Ikea.  They have cribs for like $69.99!

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!

  1. So happy that the second homestudy is done! Things will go good and fast, just enjoy this Christmas together and know that next Christmas you will have Children to enjoy all the wonderful sights and sounds of Christmas! I suggest that you buy, throughout the year, everything that you can on sale, or clearence that you can for all ages. You can always put up the things you buy that you dont need for your first kids or give to toys for tots next year. It will help so much if you buy all year round, I do, always have, couldnt do birthdays or Christmas without doing this! Love yall and Merry Christmas!

  2. Awww…thank you so much Mrs. Terri! Your tips are greatly appreciated! I will also be making homemade gifts throughout the year (who am I kidding, I probably won’t have the time)! We are going to make this Christmas special, bec/ it will probably be our last one with just the two of us! 🙂 Love you!

  3. LOve all your xmas decorations! AND I LOOOOOVE that huge pic of you both on the wall. So happy for you that the homestudy went well…PHEW, atleast all that is out of the way!! Its only a matter of time now until you get those babies, YAY!!!
