We are going to be parents!!!! That’s right everyone! We are so beyond excited to share our good news with you… BaCall and I are adopting!!!! We wanted to share a little bit of our journey with you. We decided in January that the Lord was calling us to adopt. Now if you’ve known me for any length of time, you probably already know that adoption has been on my heart for my whole adult life. BaCall and I were ecstatic to hear God saying now is the time! We are adopting through the foster care system, which means we have spent the last 6 months taking several classes, doing stacks of paperwork, background checks, medical exams, home study interviews, and more. On June 1st we had our last interview!!!! This means that all of our part is done. Now we wait for a report to be written on all of the information that has been gathered on us. Once the report is written and we approve it, we will wait for our approval or certification. Then we wait for children to be placed with us. Lots of waiting… We can’t wait to have our sweet kiddos in our arms!!! I will be posting more detailed information on our adoption journey through the fost/adopt system for all of you interested in learning more.

Back in March of 2014 my dad and I wanted to build me a new desk. Actually, I guess it started by me wanting a new desk and not being able to find one I was happy with. After browsing around online I found some cool ideas about building one out of pipes and wood. I really liked the look of it and decided to layout my own and have my dad help me build it.
There are two main pieces to the desk, the main desk, and the computer riser. The desktop has four 1×6’s laid flat next to each other long ways, meeting in the center of the desk and offsetting each by the others length. Thats how you get the zig-zag effect in the center of the desk. We supported all of this with a 1/2 inch thick piece of wood that helps to hold the whole desk together and also support the triangular inset piece that we made right where I sit. The top piece is very similar and even simpler. Its just the same 1×6’s at a 45 degree angle from the sides all cut off towards the back. We cut a piece off the back corner to have a place for all the cables to run down.
The piping I found all online for much cheaper than buying in town. You could get everything you need at Lowe’s but I saved about half of the cost by getting it from Essential Hardware. I used 1 inch rounded galvanized black pipe. I really like the look that the black pipe has but either black or silver is great. It has six legs, two on each end and two in the back, all linked together about a foot off the ground and then secured to the desk by flanges.
The LED lighting came from Ikea and was really a last minute idea that turned out to be really cool.
Thats pretty much it. We didn’t go too far into drawing things out before we really got started. Let me know if you have any questions about it at all!
