Yesterday marked An's 3rd birthday and today is our 3rd Anniversary. While we didn't really expect that we'd have An home for this birthday, we had held out a little bit of hope that maybe we'd all be in Vietnam together.

The bright light in all this waiting is that An is happy and well taken care of right now. It is so obvious that her foster family loves her and is taking great care of her. I didn't realize that I hadn't posted pictures of her most recent update, but the proof is in this smile:

The report said that she loves to be photographed - who knows, maybe we have a future model on our hands...

Anyway, Happy Birthday An!

touch-up painting or touch of the adult flu???

You pick...I would add a poll here, but I know which way my friends and loved ones would vote. And some times you just don't need to see things in black and white.

The remodel of An's bathroom is nearly complete. Just waiting for the new countertop after spending this evening touching up the paint. Yes, I am so obsessive that I have to use an artist's brush to make things look perfect along the trim and the ceiling.

Oh yeah, I also found out that I was selected as one of the 40 Accomplished Under 40 in the Boise Valley today. So perhaps I was celebrating a little too nickname is Wild Wendi for a reason!
