Missing Me Yet??

So, unintentionally, I've taken a blogger hiatus. This weekend was pretty busy. Mother's Day was GREAT! I got a new camera from my mom that I've been furiously using, but haven't figured out a fast way to upload the pictures yet. Even though my camera phone takes not-so-great pictures, every picture I take uploads automatically to Photobucket. I copy the code from Photobucket right into Blogger and voila! It takes about 10 seconds for that picture to get onto my blog. That's one of the main reason I've hesitated buying a camera. I was afraid I wouldn't use it since they aren't super easy and fast to upload. We shall see!

So, there are two things I wanted to share with you. First, I guess by this picture we knows who orders the office supplies at MY work, huh??

Yes, that says "Dundler Mifflin" and it's actually a brand from Staples. Great marketing ploy! It was on sale, what can I say? What's sad is that only one guy at my office actually noticed or even knew why this was funny. Sigh.

The second is that I felt that I needed to write about how my diet is going. It's safe to say, that it isn't. I went off the rails a couple weeks ago and haven't done a very good job of staying on track. I really don't know what's going on with me and my complete and total deferrment from dieting. It's sad, really. I feel as though I have no will power! I am struggling with it right now and maybe I need some encouragement? Maybe it's time I join a club like Curves or something with a group of women who can keep me accountable and actually notice if I am making improvement? Any words or advice would be greatly appreciated at this point!

Don't think of it an a are mentally sabotaging yourself from the beginning!! Choose healthy meals and snacks, drink lots of water and milk (milk makes you feel full), exercise most days out of the week, and give yourself a treat everyday!! A small candy or one cookie, etc... A little something is better than cutting it all out and falling off the wagon! Just cutting about 500 calories a day from your diet will result in losing about a pound a week. Doesn't seem like much, but it's the healthiest way and "slow and steady wins the race" right!! And your 500 calories can be a subtraction from your diet or you can burn that through exercise or a combo of the two!! Hang in there!!!

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 …
