31; An Unexpected Blessing

A few weeks ago, before life became super crazy, a dear friend (and adoptive mama) offered to host a fundraiser for us.  We were so surprise by Heather's kind offer and humbled and grateful for her generosity to our family and adoption fund. 
I shouldn't have been surprised though.  Being an adoptive mother herself, she knows how quickly the expenses grow during an adoption. Having known Heather since high school where she was always so amazingly supportive on and off the soccer field, well I shouldn't have been surprised by her kind offer because she is just the type of person to help someone else. 

Thank you so much for your support, Heather.

So here's the deal, friends!  From tomorrow August 1st through August 10th Heather has opened a party on her Thirty-One website, to raise money for our adoption fund.  Click on her My Parties tab and then click on our party (LaGorga Thirty-One Fundraiser) and shop away. 

In the past I've been to one thirty-one party before and was pleasantly surprised by their products; the quality is superb, the colors vibrant and the variety of items means their is something for everything.  Numerous friends use the retro metro bag for their diaper bag.

We love the cinch sac for Gabe to take into Children's church with his diapers, wipes and cup or when traveling on an airplane with all the activities he needs to stay busy.
The thermal picnic tote is perfect for picnics and lunch on the go.  When we went to Discovery Green a church friend that went with us brought this and their food was still perfectly cold after a few hours in the Texas heat. 
And the many sizes of the utility totes are perfect for organizing closets, toy rooms or sitting on book cases.  You all know I just love anything that helps orgainzing my crazy life!  Plus, they come in lots of great colors and patterns that are perfect for sitting out! 
Best of all.... all of the products listed and almost all of the products in their catalog are able to be personalized!  Now how's that for organizational help!  And monograms and personalization are just plain fun!

If you're in need of a purse or diaper bag, a gift for a baby or wedding shower, tools to help you get organized or just want to help us raise funds for our adoption, please check out Heather's thirty-one website, click on her parties link and shop at our adoption fundraiser.  We get all the profits and you get something cute for yourself, your house or to give as a gift!  Win-win!!  

I'll update tomorrow with the permalink to our fundraiser.
