Birthdays, Bracelets, and a little Bitching....

First on the agenda this evening is to give a birthday shout out to my 2nd born nephew, Travis. Today he turns 9. The family will be celebrating this weekend. I can't believe how fast these kids are growing up.... it's ridiculous.
Happy Birthday, Lil' Travis!

Next up is my new PanDora bracelet. What I love about this thing is the sentimental stuff that goes along with each charm. They all have a special meaning, or remind you of someone, or bring back a special memory. I've gotten a few requests to see what I got so here it is. Let's take a closer look at what I have so far. The pineapple was a birthday gift from Sea Star. I never would've thought to get myself a pineapple. But I love it cuz it's the perfect representation of her and all things Florida. It'll forever bring back memories of our last crazy pre-referral girl's weekend spent together. Well, pre-referral for her and her, I mean. I still have eternity to go until mine.
The penguin should be self explanatory, right? If you know me, it should. The clock has a two fold meaning. First, because I'm always late. Always. Those of you who know me are aware of how that part of my brain is hard wired wrong and no amount of work will fix it. I've tried, believe me. But Pug Mama also suggested that it stands for all the "time" I've been waiting for that little Chinese girl .... who by the way is represented by that next bead. She looks Chinese, doesn't she? LOL! I'm totally addicted and already have scoped out more future bead purchases. But I must be patient so I don't break the bank. In due time....

So can I just bitch a little about how disappointed I am with this rumor of getting thru March 6th? I mean, in my head I expected it. But I couldn't help but feel that spark of hope in my heart that my homegirls would see their babies sooner.... rather than later. Or maybe even in the same batch. Which is still possible, I know.... but unlikely since March 7th is said to be such a HUGE day. Many are predicting the next batch will just cover this one day.

At least we know for sure that Sea Star is NEXT!!! And Pug Mama is either NEXT or NEXT NEXT!!! I can not wait to see these baby girl's photos. That's part of what's helping me to float through this year as I continue to wait. Seeing my friends bring home their babies helps me hang on to the hope that some day it will be my turn. Some day..... sigh.

Speaking of which.... PIPO is in China!! Right at this very moment. Just a few more days until she has her little Claire. So stay tuned to her blog. This weekend can't come fast enough..... just to see that dream finally come true for her. Exciting times are ahead......

Happy Bday to Travis!!

Love your Pand@ra....they are so addicting aren't they? I love all the different charm choices.....I have that little girl too:) My Mom bought that charm for me the day that Sarah was brought to us!!

I was out and about working all day so I just got caught up on the cut off rumors....what a bummer, but at least they are next and possibly next, next.

Hope all is well with you!

I was so bummed to see the rumor yesterday about March 6th. I too was hoping Tracy would be in this batch.. UGH.. you are right though.. she should definitely be in the next batch for certain.

Happy Birthday Travis! Nine years old. Wow! Soon he'll be shaving!

Just kidding!

I can't even talk about the rumors. I'm starting to believe that it's possible I may never get my child. Sigh.

It is so cool seeing so many people in blog land getting theirs though!
