Day Seven Blog Challege

Well, we had some windy and stormy weather on Monday and Tuesday. I couldn't sleep very well the other night, the thunder kept me up. We got home from work Monday and found this enormous limb in our backyard that had fallen from a very tall tree. This picture doesn't show how heavy and big the limb was. Thankfully, it feel about 5 feet from our house, but it could have done some major damage to the roof.

My daughter was in a good mood last night, so we had to snap some pictures!

Ok, now on to the blog challenge!

"A picture of someone or something that has the biggest influence on you..."

Now, I know the biggest influence on me is God. But for the purposes of this question, I will answer it a different way.

I am not doing this to gain favor or "points," as my husband doesn't even read my blog. But I gotta give credit where credit is due, ther person who has the biggest influence on me is this guy right here.

Of all the people in my life, Jason has had the most influence on me RECENTLY. (This does not include growing up, Mom and Dad.) Jason has taught me so many things and decisions I make are really influence by either how Jason will feel or what he would do in the same situation.

He is patient, even keeled and never lets things get him ruffled. I think that is rubbing off on me the longer we are married.

He is a "glass half full" kind of guy. Very positive. I love that about him. And it makes me feel the same way.

Jason has faith in the Lord. My faith has grown leaps and bounds since being with him.

He is a great parent and the way he is with our kids constantly helps me learn how to be better at it myself.

Man, I have my very own super hero living in my house!!!

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…

My Trip To Rockport

My best friend moved to Rockport 3 years ago when her husband was offered the job as airport manager. His sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephews and mother all lived in that town, and two years ago, the construction on their newly built homes was completed. (his sister and brother in law, and my friend and husband built homes side by side)
A week ago Thursday, she called me and asked if she could bring her family up to DFW and would I be willing to have a few stay with us. She told me that there was a mandatory evacuation in Rockport, but they were thinking it would only be until Monday. Of course, I always love seeing her, so I was pretty excited for an excuse for them to come up and spend the weekend. As the day went by, they were predicting a more severe storm, and the family decided to get a hotel room in Waco, close to their son, who went to Baylor. They wanted to be closer to Rockport and brought animals on the trip, so thought a hotel would be the best option. My friend&#…
