My "No Diet Talk" Post

I said I would put some pictures up today....

Before I do that, can I just say I am a little obsessed with this song lately...

"Gotye" Somebody that I used to know

Avery is just getting so, OLD. It's really the most amazing thing, watching your baby, who couldn't even lift their head, or pick up toys, or sit up by themself become this person who can reach for things and talk back to you! Now, when I ask her questions, she can actually answer me and she knows what I am saying. It's so cool!

Our mornings are like clockwork, every single day. We wake up, Avery comes in bed with me and has her milk while I lay with her and we watch "Play With Me Sesame" and "The Wiggles." I get her dressed, do her hair, she runs around after I've fixed her up and tells her dad "Ook!" (Look) So he can look at her. He tells her how pretty she is, then he brushes her teeth and then they go bye bye.

(Wow, it's amazing how much light affects pictures, isn't it?)

Her entire life is one big routine, which I think has helped her in more ways that I even know. At night, every night, we come home, play a little, eat dinner, play some more, take a bath, and go night night by 7:30. Every, single, day. During day care, her day is filled with the same faces, the same schedules, the same nap time. It sounds monotonous to say it like that, but I think she is thriving within this scheduled environment.

She is just talking UP A STORM lately. I mean, everything you say, she repeats. Like I said, it's amazing.

This is what I see, every morning. My two sweetie pies leaving for the day.


But before she goes on her car ride, she has to have a book. So we have books in both our cars and she will read them and look out the window all the way to where we are going.

Ah, Go-go and Melmo are going to teach her about colors today! Have a great Thursday, everyone!

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 …
