Cake Pops & Painting Date Night

This was our first time making cake pops, and it was so fun! Our date box came with the mixes to make the cake pops, paints, canvas board, and some tunes to jam to during our date. I’m the more artistic one, so it was fun to watch K bust out the paints and go […]

Our Kind of Beauty - Our Kind of Wonderful

Our Kind of Beauty and Chaos

I ended up joining Maskcara as an artist back in August, a few days after our second meeting with T’s birth mom. I was convinced she wasn’t going to pick us, so I made a rash decision and joined a MLM, haha. It was semi-rash, I’d actually been debating it for months, but hadn’t decided […]

S'more and Star Gazing Date Night - Our Kind of Wonderful

S’mores and Star Gazing Date Night

S’mores are the way to my heart. I LOVE s’mores, and we’ll make them over candles all year round. When this date box came I was giddy with excitement, and kept asking to do it. Well, we finally did! I got all of these candles, and we lit them roasted marshmallows, cuddles up (almost lighting […]

Adoption is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I’ve been through a lot in my life. When I tell people that, they just smile. When I searched for information on what to prepare for as we tried to adopt I never could find much information from the adoptive parents perspective on how difficult it is. […]

Scrabble Date Night - Our Kind of Wonderful

Scrabble Date Night

I feel like I have an unfair advantage when it comes to Scrabble date nights, as even though he’s an english major, K can’t really spell…. but he beats me at pretty much any game we play, so I’ll take it! I’ve never been a big Scrabble player, but then again, before marrying K I […]

Castle Panic Date Night - Our Kind of Wonderful

Castle Panic Date Night

Castle panic is a game we’ve had for years and have yet to get sick of. We have quite a few expansions for it, so we’re able to change it up and it feels like a new game. In Castle Panic you work together to defend your castle from monsters. The monsters move closer to […]

Adoption - How Did We Do It? - Our Kind of Wonderful

Adoption – How Did We Do It?

After adopting our daughter, A, we had a few people reach out asking us how we were matched so quickly, what we did, etc. Then, since adopting our son, D, and daughter T, we’ve had multiple people asking those same questions again, so it seemed like a blog post was in order. Adoption is, obviously, […]
