{favorite things}

for over a year now I've been wanting to throw a ‘favorite things party’ and after weeks of anticipation the day finally arrived on Jan 14!

favorite people, favorite appetizers and desserts and 12 favorite things made for a super fun night!

each of my guests brought 3 of the same of one of their ‘favorite things’ to share with the group, the item had to be under $10 and had to be something you just couldn’t live without!

At the party I drew names to give each girl a chance to choose from the gifts, we did this for 3 rounds until each girl had 3 of someone else’s favorite things!

I was lucky enough to receive a scarf organizer/holder, body spray and new mascara!

 

we had a blast and i can’t wait to do it again!

This sounds like such a fun night! What a great idea! I just might have to steal it, if you don't mind!

I'm fairly new to your blog! I've been back reading about you and your family! You have gone thru so much, but seem to have an amazing family and support! Your boys are precious.

we've started the adoption process and i was wondering if you would write a post about how you approach the topic of adoption with grayden. how do you not keep adoption a secret, but also make sure that they feel they are fully your's, not an "adopted child"? is this making sense? i don't ever want to keep this fact from my child, but i don't want to make too big a deal of it either.
