Jordan's Sleepover

 

This is Jacob. He goes to Jordan's school and they met last year in their class. They were also on the same soccer team for the last two seasons. Jacob's dad and Jason have grown to be friends during the soccer games, so they will text from time to time and we always stood by him at the games. We actually were starting to be friends with everyone on Jordan's soccer team.
For some reason, Jordan's mom decided to move him to a different team this year. We still don't really understand why, but Jordan was pretty sad about it. The new team he is on has played together for a while and he doesn't have any friends on the team yet. So, it's hard when we go to the fields and Jordan is like, "There are the Strikers!" and he wants to go see friends he used to play with.

But, anyway, Jason tries as hard as he can to stay up on the things that are going on in the kids' lives, so it is not always easy for him when things change and he has no control over it. But even though Jordan and Jacob don't play soccer anymore, Jason still talks to Jacob's dad and we will still watch Jacob play soccer when we can. This week, we had talked to Jake's dad about something called Friday Night Live at their school. They can go and dance at the gym on Fridays. (Are they really old enough for that yet??? NOOO!!!)

**Just a little sidebar - I remember Friday Night Live in Grand Prairie at Lifetime Fitness. 90210 was all the rage my 5th grade year and I remember wearing my long sleeve black blouse with the see through sleeves and jewel button covers. Ah, memories.

Jake and Jordan had talked about going and possibly spending the night with each other, but they weren't having it this weekend, so Jason asked Jake's dad if he could just spend the night with us instead. Of course, they said yes, so Jason picked Jake and Jordan up after soccer practice and we planned on taking them both to their game on Saturday morning.

They came over and let me just tell you - all 9 year old boys are the same. Period. Kind of awkward, old enough to be very independent but not old enough to have much freedom, know it alls. They were both so sweet and so well behaved, but if you have a 9 year old, just know, it's not just yours.

Jake was absolutely wonderful - they played Wii in Jordan's room all night long. The next morning, they planned on playing outside but spend more time dressing up to go play outside than actually playing outside.

I took this picture of them at the fields. Ah, boys,. They did make us laugh on the way over to the game when they were dancing in the backseat of the car!

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 …
