Friday Night Thoughts.....

I actually got to visit with my sister on Friday in my neck of the woods. SO nice to see her. I brought Avery with us, she was good for about 20 minutes, but around 7 she started to realize she wasn't home and getting ready for bed and had a bit of a fit. But for about 20 minutes, she was in her highchair, kicking those legs, talking to us, smiling for us, and performing for our entertainment. Haha. I took a few pictures but I LOVE this one Brooke got on her phone!!!

Here is me and my sister. Isn't she beautiful???

I've talked a little about how I've been depressed lately. And while I think some of it has to do with the extra weight I am carrying, and being broke, and post-partum, Brooke mentioned to me on Friday that she thinks it also has to do with the fact that I am so far away from everyone in my family and my friends.

For those of you not familiar, I am from Grand Prairie, TX, which is located in the middle of Dallas and Fort Worth. I live in Plano, TX, which is far North of Dallas. While it is about a 45 minute drive from Plano to GP, and it is an easy drive for a weekend, it's definitely not a hop-skip-and-a-jump. We have dogs, so we can't stay gone all day to see family and friends unless we spend the night. Christmas is hard because there are too many of us to spend the night but we hate not just being down the street or a few minutes away. My sisters and friends live in GP or surrounding cities, so being down there would be really awesome. Honestly, there just really isn't any reason to stay in Plano anymore. I came here in 2005 to get away for a while, but I don't want to be away anymore.


We are in the market to find a house in GP!!! We are going through the pre-approval process now, hoping that good timing will come our way and we can find something. We are not in a rush, so it makes the process a little less stressful. I am actually really excited. We will be closer to Six Flags/Hurricane Harbor and the Ballpark, which will be great for the kids, closer to my friends, closer to his friends. It's a really great thing. I love when God starts to connect the dots for you.....

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…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 

 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
