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…

My Trip To Rockport

My best friend moved to Rockport 3 years ago when her husband was offered the job as airport manager. His sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephews and mother all lived in that town, and two years ago, the construction on their newly built homes was completed. (his sister and brother in law, and my friend and husband built homes side by side)
A week ago Thursday, she called me and asked if she could bring her family up to DFW and would I be willing to have a few stay with us. She told me that there was a mandatory evacuation in Rockport, but they were thinking it would only be until Monday. Of course, I always love seeing her, so I was pretty excited for an excuse for them to come up and spend the weekend. As the day went by, they were predicting a more severe storm, and the family decided to get a hotel room in Waco, close to their son, who went to Baylor. They wanted to be closer to Rockport and brought animals on the trip, so thought a hotel would be the best option. My friend&#…
