Father's Day/Take Two

To say that Brooke's husband and my husband were disappointed that we all spent the day at the driving range and they didn't get to go was an understatement. Jason really wanted to go, but we didn't think we could afford going two days in a row. That was, until, I saw a poster at Top Golf for Father's Day specials. One free game for fathers of Top Golf, plus $10 unlimited family play on the mini-golf course. Which was very nice. THIS was a great deal.

We wanted to be the first ones there to avoid the lines and the heat, so we arrived at 9 am. The kids were blown away by this mini-golf course! The lady told us that Jason could actually just play off my card (I still had 5 games left) and then she would add the free game to my card, which was awesome!! So, we took the kids to play mini-golf first and then we played Top Golf.

Isn't this hat adorable?? Care of my mom, of course. Avery was dressed appropriately for her day out to golf.

The kids even hit a few and did great!!!

Avery got a little nap. That heat will put you to sleep fast!!

After golf, we came home, ate lunch, and Jason took the kids out to swim. Avery needed a long nap so I stayed inside with her. After he took the kids back to their moms, he said that this was the best Father's Day he's ever had because he got to do everything HE wanted to do. I tried to make sure the kids knew we were there for HIM to have fun, not there for THEM. They were very understanding and easy going, which helped so much. Jason just loved his day so much!

I couldn't have asked for a better husband or father to my daughter. I really couldn't find one, even if I tried. He is so amazing as a father - loving, patient, teacher, jungle gym, caring, #1 fan - he is all of those things to his kids and much, much more. I have a wonderful partner who helps raise this family every day and I am so grateful to him for everything he does. I don't think the kids realize how much their dad loves them. I didn't realize when I was their age, and I am sure it will take them a few years to realize it too. But they have a dad who loves them with every ounce of their heart and soul and does anything and everything for them.

Jason, you are an amazing man. I love you so much and I am so proud that I am lucky enough to be with such a wonderful partner. I love 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…

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 …
