The Nikki/Jenna Weekend Of Fun

My friend, Nikki, came into town this weekend (isn't she beautiful??). We had so. much. fun. It was really good to actually hang out with her, in a social setting. It's been so long since we've done anything but have a quick dinner every few years, so we really deserved some time to ourselves.

We had originally planned on going to Austin, but those plans fell through, so we had decided to just come to my apartment and spend a girls' weekend. We went out together on Friday night - I was so glad to see Nikki out as a woman, not just a wife and a mom. Like I said, I think all women need this once in a while.

Saturday, we had kind of decided, kind of needed, to spend the day just relaxing. We went down to my mom and dad's house and just hung out and talked. I like to just talk sometimes.

By Sunday, we still felt like we really hadn't spent all that much time together. Just because you are having a girls' weekend doesn't mean that life just stops, or that you stop being a wife and mother. We still had obligations to attend to,  but we still got some Nikki/Jenna time.

I love you Nikki, you are one of my oldest friends and I am so glad to be a part of your life. You have taught me so much these last few years and I can not wait to go on a big time vacay!!!

I am so glad you came!!!

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 …
