Courtney asked
- How did you come up with your blog name?
I have a plaque in my office that has the saying "Even Miracles take a Little Time" on it
As we were going through our infertility issues I would look at it every day. Once we started our China adoption process it took on a whole new meaning and it just seemed to fit even better. So it stuck.
- What is your favorite color this spring?
Yellow- the brighter the better - maybe because we haven't had a lot of sun yet!
- How many kids did you picture having before you actually had any? Did that number change post baby?
We weren't sure if any were in the cards. So now that we have 1 we feel very blessed and grateful for her. So one it will be :)
- What is your favorite cereal?
Good for you cereal - Shredded Wheat
Bad for you cereal - Lucky Charms

- What is your favorite part about blogging?
"Meeting" all kinds of new people and reading their stories. Being able to share our story with others. And best of all - recording our every day moments for Lia to some day read.
- Are you a sweets or salty snacker?
Sweet - for sure
What is the first blog you started following?
I stared following 2 blogs and still follow them
- What are you looking forward to the most this summer?
Outside time with Lia
Driveway parties and cook-outs with our neighbors
The 4th of July
- Finish this sentence: I can't help but smile when...
Lia tells jokes 
Lia says "Hey Mama" when she needs/wants something
If you could do anything with your hair right now, what would you do?
Go blonde and a cute short bob - like Jenny McCarthys'
- What is your guilty pleasure?
Reality TV :
 Real Housewives-  of whatever county is on  
The Little Couple

  1. What an honor to be nominated! :)
    I saw this a couple of days ago, but had a busy week and didn't even start on it yet! I'm totally stressed about coming up with other bloggers to nominate. How do you find out how many followers people have?
    What a fun thing to do, though. I'll try to get mine done this week!

  2. Yay! Thanks for answering the questions! Sorry it took me so long to see it, Disney sucked all the time and energy right out of me. Glad to be back to normal!
    What a super sweet intro, blush =)

  3. Promise I'll answer my questions as soon as schools out for summer! :)
