Best Gift Ever

Tomorrow my house is getting a good cleaning and I'm NOT doing it!!! I am so excited. I have friend that cleans houses and I called her to see if I could get a once over before the baby comes. She said she would love to fit me in and as a GIFT!!! She is awesome.
I've said before I am not the best housekeeper. I keep up, barely! My house isn'tfilthy dirty, but its not deep cleaned every week either. This will be wonderful. She will do floors, baseboards, and give the bathrooms and nice sparkle!
I wished it was a little closer to the baby's arrival but I'll take what I can get. She already does one house this Saturday and offered to come afterwards. It actually works out pretty well as we'll be gone all afternoon. We will just have to make sure we keep it up for the next few weeks until baby! I'm just so happy that I'm not doing all the nitty gritty cleaning...have I mentioned that?? Hehe! She said she'd even change sheets!!! Woah!
I am just not used to this. I have plenty of friends that get someone to clean monthly or biweekly, but not me. Maybe that will be one thing I indulge in after baby with all that money I'm saving in daycare costs!!! hmmm, something to ponder.
Until then, I'll be greatful for wonderful friends and their generosity.
Now, off to "pre clean"!! I just want to make sure she's not spending all he time moving random stuff just so she can really clean! Hubby thinks I'm crazy for that one, but he'll be happy tomorrow when its all spic and span!

Sweet Baby Girl

Not mine...let's just get that out of the way now. WOW, I posted on FB today that I was boing to meet sweet baby Grace and that started a whole new whirlwind of comments and well wishes!!! HA...not my baby!!! I meant I was going to meet a friend's baby girl today but I guess I should have reworded the status...
She was toooooooo sweet and tiny and just plain sweetness. She was born July 28th and she is super special. She's adopted. My friends have waited so long for this moment and they are going to be the best parents ever. Grace's mommy battled and beat cancer years ago and left her with the inability to have her own children, so they decided to adopt. IF I couldn't have my own biological children, I would adopt in a heartbeat. I believe that every child needs a great home and if there are loving and wonderful people out there willing to love & raise them, then by all means, they should!
Throughout this process they have waited and prayed for a little baby to call their own and now that day is here. She is adorable. She is innocent and sweet and just perfect! I'm so happy for them and can't wait for our kids to grow up together!!! SO many memories to make!
