SUYL - Baby Showers

I thought I would participate in Kelly's Corner SUYL today - show us your baby showers....

So, I went back through to find pictures on the blog about when I blogged about my baby showers. Guess what? I did not blog about them. That makes me sad. So I am glad I get this opportunity!!

I had 3 showers when I had Avery. I hope I can find all of the pictures for them!!
My first shower was my mom's church friends.

Here is my mom, sisters, and myself. I don't know why people tell you that you "glow" when you are pregnant. I look at this picture and all I can see is my pale skin and horrible roots.

 Aren't these adorable cakes??

This was a tummy time mat from my mother in law. She lives in Seattle and wasn't able to come to any of my showers, but she made sure to send this cute tummy time.

My second shower was at my mom's house with her teacher friends.

Avery's nursery was pink and zebra, I thought this table looked great!

 Cute cupcakes....

 Got some cute auntie onesies from my sisters....

Oh Kate, how I love thee!

Kate got me this madonna onesie...I love it. I need to get one for her size now.

And the introduction of the tutus you see in Avery's month pictures every month!

My 3rd shower was my most interesting. Many of my parents friends are the neighbors that either live or have lived in their neighborhood over the years. Two of their friends' kids were having babies too, so we did a neighborhood couples' shower. It was so. much. fun.

Isn't this cake adorable??

We played this game with the husbands and wives. As you can see, the husbands put their faces into a foam board....

...then they blindfolded the wives and we had to feed them like a baby! I laughed the whole time. It was hilarious!!!

I am glad Jason got to be a part of a shower. However, I can't say that any of the husbands really cared about being there. They were more concerned with the UT football game on the background. 

Kind of makes me sad to reminisce......

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 …
