15 Interesting Things About Myself:

1) I have seen every episode of I Love Lucy, Friends, and Sex and the City at least 10 times each. At least.

2) I love change. Most people don't like change in life, but I love it. In fact, if something isn't changing in my life every few months, I get on edge.

3) I love conspiracy theories. I am obsessed. When I come across one, I research it constantly.

4) I hate anything spicy. If it's spicy, I will not eat it. Maybe I should put spice on Oreos then I wouldn't like those either.

5) I am the world's worst procrastinator, even though I've had to get better about that over the years.

6) I am an incredibly good problem solver. Maybe that's because I have always been a procrastinator, so I am always having to problem solve my way out of jams. It's funny (and sad) because it's true.

7) I work at a engineering company, despite my complete lack of knowledge on the subject (when I got hired). Don't worry, I don't actually do engineering work, ha!

8) Most days, I wonder how in the world I became a parent and how the in the world anyone, including the kids, would think I was good at it!!!

9) One of my most favorite things to watch on TV are stories of celebrities/business people and the stories of their rise to success. Especially ones that got told "no" alot before they made it big.

10) I hate playing sports and always have. This can be evidenced in my quick departure from basketball in the 7th grade after only one game when I got elbowed in the nose and vowed never to return.

11) I love getting dressed up and going and doing new things. Dancing, watching a play, etc. Those are my most favorite.

12) If I could live on cereal for the rest of my life, I would. It is my absolute most favorite thing to eat and I love almost every single kind there is.

13) I lay on the floor with each of my dogs and pet them/hug them for at least 15 minutes, every single day.

14) I am terrified of the blender, garbage disposal, deli slicer, or anything that my hand can get stuck in. Like, terrified. Like, I lose my breath thinking about it.

15) I hate doing my makeup. In fact, it's the most annoying thing ever, which is why I hardly ever do it!

Hey, that was fun! I am looking forward to this!

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 …
