Our New Addition

I would like for you to meet the newest addition to our home.

Isn't she pretty? She was given to me by the same WONDERFUL woman who gave Avery this rocking chair...

And these onesies....

The girls room in the new house isn't quite ready for a reveal, but here is just the wall with our newest addition...

Love. Love. Love.

We got to go hang out with Kristen last night at her house, which is SSSOOOOOOO cute by the way. She is so creative and I can just see her blog filled with all of her wonderful ideas and cute crafts. We are going to work on that in the next couple of weeks, aren't we Kristen? I know you are reading. Avery loved Kristen's elves. She had two plush elves that Avery just carried around her house (by their legs, of course). Why didn't I get any pictures, you ask? Because my phone was almost dead. I didn't charge it like I should have. She also made this wonderful dinner of Mexican food, it was YUMMY!!!

You might notice a box beside Avery's crib. Well, I found this idea on pinterest one day...

And I just thought that is such a cute idea! (I didn't even notice that this room has a rocking chair too, just like ours!) I don't think we have room in their room for this, though. Well, I also read a blog about a woman who poked holes in the top of a box and inserted Christmas lights (kind of like stars) and I loved that too. Avery crawled inside of this box one day in the living room and I thought, I bet I could paint this and do some stuff with it to make it a little spot where she could go. Well, the box fit and there have been a couple of times we've looked for Avery and found her hiding in her box, so I think over the Christmas vacation, that will be a project of mine. I mean, it's not like I don't have anything else going on, right?

You'll also notice our brown sheets are back on the windows. The black curtains we had didn't fit the new windows, but they did fit in Jordan's room and the brown curtains I had underneath (which you can see from this post) actually went up in my foyer. So, now, I have about three rooms worth of curtains to get. We will see if I can get that done this weekend. It's a need we have, definitely.

Have a great Friday!

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 …
