A bunch of random stuff

So here's a kitchen update.  I was thinking I was going to wait until it was all finished to show before and after pictures but a friend who lives out of state lovingly encouraged me to post pictures so she could see.  Basically she said something like "When are you gonna post pictures of your kitchen already?!!!!"  So I'm obliging:)  So we went with board and batten on the walls as you can see, I still have to paint it with two more coats of white paint.  I also have to say that I REALLY don't like the gray paint on the walls now, it looks baby blue and I'm not digging it.  So I will be working on fixing this soon.  There's still a lot more work to be done and we have quite a bit of wood left over so you better believe I have some ideas on how I will be using it:)

Sorry for the poor quality of the photos.

And another view.

Sorry for the mess.

Do you like my owl cutting board?  I think he's pretty cute...my husband on the other hand looked at me like I had lost it.

 I got him on a recent shopping trip to Anacortes with this lovely lady...the shorter one, lol!

Remember the pillow I made out of my husband's shirt from this post?
Well I've made a couple more since then.
Here's the backs.

And the fronts.

Here's how they look with the rest of my pillows.  We have a large couch so I need to get cracking on some more pillows and throw in a few with some warm Fall colors as well.

For Christmas pillows I am inspired by this picture from Pottery Barn.  I just need to find some plaid shirts from Goodwill or maybe a pretty tablecloth...oooh the wheels are turning!

8.  Today I am grateful for prayer...more specifically people that are praying over us and for us.  I know of a small handful of people who are consistently praying for us regarding our adoption and I am so thankful for them.  Adoption can be a lonely road to walk at times and it is always encouraging to hear from those who are.  I have not really shared the depths of my heart about how our adoption is going lately with all of you here on my blog.  And quite honestly I'm not able to share specifics at this time but I am pleading with you all now who are following along with us on our journey to please be in prayer for us, for Sergey, for our agency,social worker and Eastern European partner agency.  As well as for the judge that will be handling our case.  We covet your prayers.  I would love to hear from you if you are praying for us it would be such an encouragement to me.  Thank you:)
