Moving Stuff Around DOES Work!!!

Have you ever NOT been in love with something in your home and then move it, and then, you are in love again?

I got this really awesome shelf from a friend of my family. I have not done a great job of taking before pictures. But, it was a great quality shelf, real wood. It was just red. Just a little bit of Kilz and some black paint, and bam. Totally awesome.

I also did not take a before picture of this area of my kitchen. It was totally ok before, but nothing really special. I had a rod iron shelf that held a bunch of, well, crap. I had a basic dry erase calendar on the wall, and dog dishes on the floor.

But NOW, it's my most favorite place in the whole house. And it's not even done yet!!!

Here is the before of where I had the black and tan blocks as decor. They were too spread out for that big wall. So, they just looked out of place.

I didn't really know what I wanted to put on this shelf, but I had a bunch of dishes and plates that I got for my wedding that were shoved in a cabinet. For an apartment, I really do have alot of cabinet space. But things were getting piled against each other. My mom and I thought, they would be great for display. Now, I have a space for them!

I also received all of these aprons as wedding/engagement gifts. The black one in the middle was from my awesome friend Karen on the night I got engaged. It says, "Mrs. Whitehead.." the first thing with my new name. And now, people can see it! The other two aprons are kid sized, one for Sophia and one for Jordan, the I got as wedding gifts. Jordan never wore his, so now it will be for Sophia and Avery.

I have a million ideas of what I want to do on the top of this shelf, but I haven't decided completely yet. I am so excited, my home is actually becoming something that is not just a bunch of mismatched, space filling, decor and furniture. AWESOMENESS!!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
