I got this idea from Live.Love.Laugh, such a great idea!

Copy/ Paste it to your blog and lets see your survey answers too.

1) How did you and the hubby meet?

Steven and I actually went to college together and I even lived with his cousin in the dorms. However, we ran into each other at a bar after we were both finished with school. Steven was actually about to start Law School and I had been out of college for two years! All my friends thought it was crazy that I was dating someone that was about to start the ups and downs of law school but 5 years later here we are!!! I guess you could say we met in a bar since we hadn't spent much time together prior to that night :)

2) If you could do any job in the world, what would it be?

Many will think I am crazy for saying this but my dream job would be a teacher in an 'inner-city school'. I believe all children are special beings and deserve the chance to learn. However, I believe that children in the types of situations you see at these schools need even more love and guidance in their life!

3) What are your and your hubby's dreams for the future?

Steven actually has very lofty career goals and I have no doubt that he will be able to obtain them. In the time that he has been in his current role he has had two promotions and now actually has a new soon to be (hopefully :)) attorney reporting to him! He was at his job full-time a short 6 months before he had an intern reporting to him. So in these times we are EXTREMELY thankful for his opportunities!

We know that eventually we would like to add to our family! Steven and I are both very passionate about children and we would not only like to be able to have the opportunity to have biological children but we are also very passionate about adoption. We know when the time comes that God will lead us down the path that is right for us!

Right now we are just enjoying life and following the path God has for us!

4) Why did you start blogging?

We have some wonderful friends that are actually on a journey to adopt from China. I was introduced to the blogging world through them and shortly became hooked! I enjoy the glimpse of life into others and love learning about people!

5) Who do you look up to?

My parents got married at the age of 17 and 18! Everyone's first question is were they having a baby.....the answer is no!!! They knew that they wanted to be together and chose to take a leap of faith. They are still happily married today and have been for 31 years!

This week has been crazy to say the least! The weekend will be just as crazy with lots of busy plans! We have dinner tonight for our friends Chad's birthday at Shogun which is should be yummy and lots of fun! Tomorrow we will be leaving for Tulsa, with our new camera in tow to see our sweet friends The Masters'. I can't wait to love on my two favorite little boys McClain and Max! On Sunday we have a birthday party to attend on our way back to town. So needless to say the weekend will be crazy but should be lots of fun!

What's a post without a picture!!! This is Steven and I with our friend Chad who will be celebrating his 38th birthday tomorrow!!!

Max Travis Masters

This weekend I headed to Tulsa! One of my best friends and the matron of honor from our wedding was set to give birth on Saturday to her 2nd son! When I left Yukon the latest update I had was that he would probably make his appearance around lunch. I was doing all I could to make it there on time and when I arrived Casey had not progressed much at all. I like to think Max was waiting on his Aunt Jamie to be there :). After a smooth labor and delivery Max joined the world at 3:07 pm. He was 8 lbs 15 oz and 18 3/4 inches long with a head full of black hair....MUCH different than Big Brother McClain! He is absolutely perfect!! Mom and baby are both doing great! We will be making another trip up on Saturday to visit.....I don't know if I can wait that long!!

He was more interested in his toys than having his picture taken.

Not quite sure he wants to be here yet!
Thumb sucker!
Hanging out with momma!

Terrible Blogger

So, I'm officially a terrible blogger! Things have been hectic to say the least!!! After our successful trip to Arkansas I spent the weekend in Tulsa with my dear friend Casey! I spent some time helping her prepare for her upcoming arrival, Max! We are patiently waiting for him to get here....any day now! If she hasn't had Max by Saturday morning she is schedule for an induction.....needless to say I'll be heading back to Tulsa this weekend! I can't wait to spend time with her and her sweet family!
