Dinner was a success!!!!

We had an awesome turn out for the Second Annual Pighetti Dinner!!  We raised just over $1,700 for Called to Adopt!! So excited about the families that this is going to help. Will try to get some pictures posted over the next couple days.
Looking forward to our next event (yes - the ideas are already flowing!!!!)

Whew - haven't had much time to blog lately - we are gearing up for the Second Annual Pighetti Dinner and Silent Auction. We had one of these events last year to raise money for our adoption. This year we are excited to kick off our non-profit organization Called to Adopt! All proceeds from this Pighetti Dinner will go to provide grants and fund-raising assistance to families pursuing adoption.

So excited to see how God is growing this event and using us to help create forever families!!!

If you are in the Orlando area this Saturday I hope you can join us!
Post again soon!!

BTW - if you are curious the new total is 10 lbs! :@)

Almost forgot!!

I am also participating in a Blog Hop through the blog Give1Save1 . They will be featuring blogs for domestic adoption families that are fundraising. Take a moment to head on over and read about some awesome families and add your own blog!!

Week 2 weigh it!!

Second weigh in and still losing!! I'm down another 2.8!! Woohoo!! This week was definitely a little harder, but still managable. My focus for this week will be to work in some more exercise - shouldn't be hard since we are planning a trip to SeaWorld on Friday to celebrate Mackenzie's last day of freedom.

We also get to meet Mackenzie's new teacher on Friday morning. Can't believe my baby girl is going to be in first grade!!! Then just a week later my baby-baby girl will turn ONE!!! Eeekkk!!! I can't believe the last year has gone by so quickly! Then again, we did pack a LOT of stuff into the last year :@)

In other news...This week Called to Adopt got some pretty exciting news - we were invited to be an exhibitor at the Created for Care retreat in March!! If you haven't heard of it, I highly recommend you check it out! It's a retreat for moms that are passionate about adoption. Really looking forward to finally meeting (in person) so many of the ladies that I have "met" online through blogs and the facebook adoption community :@)  Check out their website at Registration for their January and March retreats open at 12:01am on August 15th. Leave a comment here and let me know if you are planning on attending!

And the verdict is...

Down by 4.6 pounds!!! Woohoo!!!! I won't say it was particularly easy, but it was not nearly as bad as I imagined it would be. I had a couple times where I was starved, but mainly because I hadn't planned ahead to have a good snack choice and refused to make a bad one. This week I will focus on planning out meals better so that I don't have to panic at the last minute.
Thank you for all of your support and encouragement!!!
