Girls Room Reveal! Part Two

Do you know what I love? Is when you are planning on spending money on one thing, but you end up repurposing it for free and saving that money. I mean, I love it.

That's why yesterday was such a great day for me.

As you can see from yesterday's post, I finally finished the girls room. Woo hoo!!!

I had promised Sophia I was going to get a table for her room. She colors and does crafts on our kitchen table and it's not always simple to clean up. So I told her one day she would get a table. I also wanted to chalkboard paint it so she could color the top. We just didn't have the money.

Remember this table?

It was an end table that was in major need of redo. So, I painted it to this....

Looks good! It was just fine until we received two new end tables from a friend. Then, there was just no place for it. I tried selling it on Craigslist. I even tried giving it away. No takers. Then, I had a brain storm. (I love brain storms.) And then, voila!!

I had a can of Oops! paint that I had purchased for $1, thinking it was pink and I would use it somewhere, eventually. So I painted the legs pink and the top chalkboard, and here we are!

I did a little rearrange to fit everything in the room. The table and lamp made the table look awkward, but I really love them so I just moved them around....

So now it's Tickle Me Elmo's home! That toy hangy-thingy doesn't match, but it was there already and so I just left it. When the closet door is closed, you really can't see it anyway.

Like I said, this is my favorite space in the whole house. Mainly because it's done, and it all MATCHES!!! And because Sophia has a really girly cute room that she's never had with her dad before. And that makes me proud!!

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 …
