Our Weekend

We had a relaxing weekend, for the most part. Friday night, Jason and I watched movies and stayed up (kind of) late and then woke up (kind of) late and watched another movie on Saturday. We stayed in our pajamas and cleaned and then went to my parents to spend the night.

As I have mentioned, Avery is obsessed with hats, especially baseball caps. She will grab the bill and try to eat it. I got some cute shots of her in her daddy's cap.

Then, we dressed her up and headed over to my parents to spend the night and spend the day on Sunday. I just love watching my parents with Avery. They love her so, so, so much.

Avery didn't take a good nap on Saturday and wouldn't go to sleep on Saturday night for anything. We spend all night with her in bed with us, tossing and turning. We woke up around 4:30 and went into the living room like zombies and watched TV, while she ate her breakfast. My dad came in around 6:30 and said, "We will take her, you two go get some sleep!" Well, you don't have to ask us twice! So, we went back to sleep until around 8:30. I love my parents. :-) And of course, they took her into their room and she fell asleep while playing on their pillows. Yeah, just fell right asleep. Wouldn't do that for us, but of course, did that for them. Gees.

Avery has been grinding her teeth like crazy lately. It drives. me. nuts. It makes me CRINGE every time I hear that horrible noise. Now I know how popping my knuckles sounded in my mom's ears when she would go "Quit doing that!!" She would grind them and then hit in a bad spot and would scream bloody murder and cry because it hurt. She has done so well with teething so far, but that was before she got teeth on the top, too. She now has 7 teeth, 4 on bottom that have come in and 3 on top that are coming in. Luckily, we got home last night around 7 pm, she got some Tylenol and a bottle and went to bed and didn't wake up till 6 am this morning. That was good.

Have a great week!!

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 …
