***UPDATE - I was informed today by my father that the anniversary of the Titanic is coming up, which is why it is being re-released. So, I stand corrected on this post, but I won't remove it. :-) Anyway, just a little pre-reading reading.***

I was watching TV this morning and of course, saw this commercial come on. I'd seen this advertised before and I thought the same thing when I saw it the first time....


In 3D? Really??

It's like we just have to keep re-releasing movies in 3D, just because we have the technology.

Not all movies are meant to be in 3D!! I won't lie to you. Titanic was a big part of my life my senior year. I remember the first time I ever saw it. I was blubbering like a little baby. I came home and I was still blubbering. I had a Leo crush for a long time after that. Still do :-)

And my dad, I will never forget this, told me to go outside and put my arm in our pool as long as I could stand it (It must have been cold outside). He told me that however long I could stand it, the water those people died in was way colder than that, and it really made me realize this movie was not just a movie. People actually died like this. When I saw it the first time, I thought, sure it's a great love story, but it was a great retelling of what actually happened. After that movie, the Titanic was everywhere. And it made you realize that people actually died in the middle of the ocean, with no hope of surviving. And now, because James Cameron doesn't have enough money, I guess, we feel the need to plaster it all over the screens in 3D? What, pray tell, about this movie needs to be seen in the 3d? Excuse my crudeness, but people dropping from the boat, hitting the propeller on the way down and spinning to their death is not exactly my idea of a fun 3D experience.

And Disney keeps re-releasing their movies in 3D. I won't lie, we took the kids to see the Lion King in 3D. It's a good movie, but putting it in 3D did nothing for it, at all.

I mean, movies like Avatar or kids movies like Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, where these movies were made to be in 3D, that's worth it. But when is this going to stop? There are alot of great movies that have been made. Does that mean they all need to be in 3D? When will it stop? Shawshank Redemption? Schindler's List? I am, for one, just kind of tired of them putting these movies out, and it's clearly an effort to make more money out of them.

Now, movies like Star Wars, I can see doing in 3D. Action movies. Jason took Jordan to see the first one that came out and they said it was awesome.

But seriously - Stop the madness!!! Before it's took late! Ha ha.

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 …
