Officially Waiting

The profile books came in a day early. I looked through one and loved it. I was not sure how it would look in print which is not the same as the screen. My text was 16pt which sounds really large so I was not sure how it would come out. It was great. I figured that if someone was not a good reader a large font would be inviting. Of course DH finds a spelling mistake that I made. It was in a title and I  wrote Altanta, erggh so I was really upset for about a minute and debated about reprinting them. Then I thought abut the money and time I would waste and just ignored it.

I drove over to the agency and I handed her my profile books.  Even though my agency is national, it seems that they focus on the states in their local area. She wanted 5 books for the 3 offices in my state and one in two  other states. So for now it seems that I could travel to one of three states, but they are all close enough to drive to.

I wanted to get her impression of my book and get on her good side. We had a great chat that lasted for almost 45 min. She loved our book. The cover is blue with white swirls and we are wearing blue outfits.... honestly that was not planned but it looks nice. She went through and oohed and ahhed over it. It made me feel great. She loved the colorful backgrounds. We made the left and right pages the same color but then we made every two pages a different color. I used, purple, blue, yellow, green, and pink.

I have lots of pictures so if someone just looks at it you can still get a good idea. The SW said she can tell that we are happy, and have lots of hobbies. She did not catch the spelling error. =) I did provide text for those who wanted to learn more, but since the text is 16pt it is not as much as you might think.

I am very excited to announce that we are officially waiting to get matched.


  1. First, CONGRATS on being in the waiting phase now! It's an exciting time for sure. :) Hope your wait is short and easy!

    And second, when I first saw Altanta, I really had to look hard to figure out how it was spelled wrong, and that's after I had already read that it was spelled wrong. It doesn't stand out at all. Yay! The profile book is officially done. Must feel good. :)

  2. Congrats on officially waiting. It's a good feeling to know you are finished with all of the paperwork, etc. Waiting is hard (for us anyways)....fill the time doing things you love.

  3. Congratulations!!! That's such an exciting step. I agree with Stephanie - I had to read the misspelled word a few times to even see it. Chances are, no one will notice but you =) Many prayers that you get "the call" soon!

  4. hey, remember me?? lol....I just saw this post of yours and WHOLLY COW!!!! Waiting?!? SO EXCITED FOR YOU....seriously, any day now. I have such a feeling it is going to happen very soon!! SO happy for you!!

    I bet your book looks AWESOME! It is so fun to see your hard work in print. I will continue to pray your wait is a short one! <3

  6. You are on your way! Congratulations! Love your blog design.
