Be the change you want to see in the world...

Synopsis of Us

Lisa is au natural. She likes to have babies at home and drink slimy green liquids with large amounts of earth in them. She loves the quacks and we love her. If you are ailing, just call Lisa. She will doctor you up!

Melanie is a little bundle of energy. She's very peppy and always bouncing around. Do not drive with her. She tends to talk and visit and not watch the road. Cuts a mean hair-do!

Sarah is crazy! She loves Diet Pepsi (too much). The group photographer with many free photo shoots for her friends. Many questionable eating habits that we all ignore, hopefully they don't kill her.

Emily is an overachiever. She never sleeps and wakes up way too early so she can pratice music with her kids. She loves the earthy green drink too. Be careful, she will try to poison you with sugar-free goodies.

Jen is a dental hygienist. If you want to know which kind of gum to chew (to xylitol or not to xylitol, this is the question) she'll know.

Lana is full of crap! Literally, her house is full of crap! Yes, just stuff. If you ever need any random thing, pretty sure it's in her house... somewhere. Very competitive, don't coach children's athletics with her.

Adria is straightforward. She pretty much says it like it is. She is our community sex-ed advisor. Any questions, just ask her, she knows it all.

Marianne (one of the tall, leggy blonds) is amazing! She graduated from college while taking care of her four children and working to save the entire Chinese orphan population.

Marilyn is a perfectionist. She has to have everything at a ninety degree angle, if not, she's nervous. Hopefully this doesn't kill her. Likes to scrapbook, spends a large sum of money on this activity.

Stephanie (another tall, leggy blond) really likes to work out. Too much of a good thing is not a good thing. Nursing is her profession (not wet nursing).

Anyone need their car washed?

ok I am on the downhill slide.............just 3 months or less to flying to China for our little china doll! My heart is getting so sad without her! .........but I digress:) I still need some dough for the orphanage donation. It went up by 2 thousand dollars since Jonah's adoption. Thank you so much for helping me with my garage sale. Lana, and Lisa , you were invaluable. Everyone who donated shtuff to it THANK YOU!!!! Steph thanks for sitting with me! Mel and Sarah, thanks for the donated items and for the brownies for the bake sale! I have the BEST band of friends.... PERIOD!!! oh and btw a certain family who wants to remain anonymous have donated frequent flyer miles for our travel to get our precious little girl. Honestly there is no way to repay all the generosity they have shown in our last two adoptions. They act like it's not a big deal to donate those miles, but trust me IT IS!!! THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU!

I am doing odd jobs (food coaching), have had a garage sale, am making jewelry to sell, and am still quite concerned about the last chunk of money I need to get her home. ie.. the 5,000 orphanage donation!! So, I am having a slew of service oriented fund raisers starting with a CAR WASH!!! If you would like to help me wash cars I would really appreciate it. If you would like to donate a baked goodie or two for the bake sale I will have there, I would love it! Come have a ball with me and get wet! It's at Stokes.....:)It's supposed to be 85 degrees!! It's from 10-1 THIS SATURDAY AUGUST 29........ So be there or be square!! Jarrod can't go so I will NEEEEEED your muscle desperately!! I know it's late notice but I found out this afternoon that I will be having knee surgery next week so I will be out of commision for a little while. BAD timing I know but it's all good. Anything for my little empress:)
