Kids Room Reveal!

The kids didn't know that I was redoing their rooms. Well, they knew it was coming, but didn't know when. Jason picked them up and brought them back home and I made him swore not to tell them. Jordan walked in and said, "Jenna, did you finish our rooms yet?" I said, "Don't know, go look!"

I wish I had a better cameraphone because the moment he saw it turned out so blurry, but he was SO excited! He saw everything organized, his new bed, his desk. He immediately started playing with everything. And he loves that he has a TV all his own. 





Sophia was ecstatic when we told her she was sharing a room with Avery. I mean, over the top, happy. So, when she saw her room, immediately she said, "Jenna, can I hold Avery on my bed?" Of course, I said, "YES!" Then. she pulled out books and started reading to her. Then, when Avery wasn't having that anymore, I put her in her Bumbo on the floor and Sophia started pulling out toys.  She'd come out every so often and say, "Jenna, Avery burped twice!" Or I'd hear, "Avery, don't put that in your mouth!" (I can see them from the kitchen and Avery was trying to eat the book.) So cute. Once again, their room is not finished yet.




Once the kids got there and went to their rooms, they didn't want to come out! We were like, OK, what do we do now? We are so used to them pulling everything out to the living room and being completely cramped up. And then, the hard part. When they had to go back to their moms, they didn't want to leave. That usually happens when they get something new at our house. Soph went in their closet and I saw tears, "I want to stay here with Avery!" She sobbed. I told her, "I know sweetie, but you will be back and you can spend all weekend next weekend!" That's hard to watch.

What a good feeling last night was!! It's like we gained so much more room in our house. Good day!!!

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 …
