Goodbye Boots and Hello Handsomes!

19 Mar

Well, it’s 2 weeks today since the ministry accepted our EP. They said it would take “up to 2 weeks” to process.  If there is any update, we will hear it today. No one has heard anything as of this moment when I’m typing.

UPDATE – No EP’s were approved.

This weekend, we glanced into Cora’s closet and saw all of the nice winter stuff waiting for her homecoming.  Boots, winter coats, sweaters, etc….and with the 80’s that we’ve been having, even though we know it’s not going to stay this warm for long, we now realize that winter is over, Cora is not home and we will not be needing the winter stuff that we bought. Glad I kept tags on some of them – I returned what I could yesterday.

Goodbye boots.

Goodbye sweet pink coat.

Such big plans for you, but you will be for some other child.

We took the boys shopping for their special family day outfits that we will wear when we take custody of Cora.  We’re expected to dress up that day and I have boys who LOVE dressing up.  We found all we needed at JCP’s at an amazing price.

(Look at this boy’s socks. Seriously. Only noticed when he was in the fitting room shoeless.)


Miles complete outfit was only $20, so if you have a kiddo who wears size 8 and under and need an easter outfit – run! DARLING! Logan was a little jealous of the vest. 😉  The dress shoes were only $7! And not on sale! I’m headed back to look for myself! 🙂

Because we thought we were traveling in the winter, all of the outfits I had planned for myself were warm weather clothes.  Back to the drawing board, I guess. Normally this would be a great thing, but the cost of plane tickets are also rising as the weeks and months pass by.  Go big or go home, right? 😉

    The boys look great! I can’t believe how much they’ve grown (amazing deals at JC Penney … at least you were able to save $$ there).

    Fingers crossed you hear something today … if not today, THIS WEEK!! Soon!

    Oh, Jen. This has gone on way too long. Boo on bringing back the boots and coat. Sorry you had to do that.
    On the flip side, your boys? So handsome. Love your fashion finds. I’m going to have to check out the new JCP, too!:)
