SUYL - How did you tell your husband/family you were pregnant?

I kept this pregnancy test because I couldn't bring myself to throw it away!! It was the scariest moment of my life to date, when I saw that positive test. But back up, I will tell you the story, because Kelly's Corner has asked me to...

We found out we were pregnant very soon after we were married. Very, very soon. One day, I told Jason that I thought I might be pregnant, but it also could just be the stress of everything that had been going on, so I would take a test just to be sure. He was going to get his hair cut, so I said I would just take a test to see the negative result so I could feel better and move on.

I ran up to Kroger and got some generic tests. There were two in the box. I got home and took one test. (That would be the test you see above). There is was, clear as day. Pregnant. Umm..... I took the second test. Positive. Oh gees.

When Jason came home, I said, "can you please go to the bathroom and look on the counter?" He said, "why?" I said, "just go look." He went in and said, "WHAT???" I said, "yep." He asked me which brand I used and I told him just the generic brand. He insisted it was cheap and couldn't be right, so he went and got two more that were a brand name. I took them both and sure enough, positive. I took a total of 6 in the first week, just out of shock and disbelief!!

I was really nervous to tell my parents for some reason, as if I was 16 and still in high school and in trouble. I wanted to do some cutesie way, but opted to just come right out with it. And for some reason, my parents are just way too perceptive. I told my dad first and the second I said, "- have something to tell you..." He said, "are you pregnant?" Then he hugged me. My mom said the exact same thing, "are you pregnant? When are you due?" My parents are never really the type to show tons of excitement, so even though they were happy they were also nervous for us. But it still was a moment I will neber forget.

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 …
