Avery's Bad Day and Sophia's Funny Story

So, my daughter who normally sleeps all night long, woke us up at 1:30 and stayed awake until 3:45. At 6, when Jason got her up and I looked at her eye, it was crusty, along with her nose. I said, "I think this is pink eye." Sho' nuff, it was.

Man. All I feel like I have been doing lately is taking her to the doctor. And she doesn't like going to the doctor, at all. Luckily, I have the two most wonderful parents who let me go to work the last half of the day and they kept her in the afternoon. By the time I got home, Jason had picked up Avery and I walked through the door to find her face completely red, her eyes watering, her nose running, and she was cranky and running a 101 fever. She was not having a good day. So, we put more eye drops in, fed her, gave her some Tylenol and a bath to wash all of those crusties from the day off. I also noticed she was scratching, so we gave her some Benadryl. By about 7:15, she was in a much better mood. Hopefully, the medicine will help her get some relief and get a good night's sleep! I couldn't bare to take a picture of her when she was so upset, so I just went in there to snap a shot.

What is it with babies and sleeping in this position? And why can't they ever get through the night with BOTH socks on their feet?

I just found this picture from Sunday and completely forgot to post about it. It made us laugh. so. hard. This is just SUCH a Sophia story and one of the reasons I love that girl more than life itself!! I told you we got the fire pit. So, on Saturday, we went outside to enjoy the fire and I told her she needed to go get a sweatshirt on. I told her it was on her bed. Keep in mind, she is a 6/7 size right now. She came outside and I look over at her about 5 minutes later, realizing that her sweatshirt was too short. Then, I saw her sleeves were really short. And then I said, "Sophia, do you have Avery's sweatshirt on?" (They both have similiar shirts like this). This is a 24 month sweatshirt. How she got it on, I will never know. But she wasn't complaining, just enjoying herself!

On a different morning, I had asked Sophia to change her panties before we left the house. Later on in the day, I took her to the bathroom, and noticed she had two panties on. "Sophia, why are you wearing two panties?" "Oh," she giggled, "I guess I forgot to take the first pair off."

That girl is such a trip!

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 …
