The Zoo

So, the plan for today was to take a day off work for me and Avery to spend some mommy and daughter time together. A thief decided to almost ruin our plans and break into our car instead. At church. On Wednesday. Ugh. So, we had to fit the zoo into taking the car to the body shop and getting the kids, so Jason was our third wheel. Ha ha!

The zoo was so much fun. I loved spending the day with Avery today. She didn't cry one time, all day. Might surprised, considering it was really warm!

She didn't really know what to think about some of the animals. Her favorite one was this guy...

Shew-y, these flamingos were stinky!!!

We ate lunch in the Crocidile Cafe. The glass was right there, and these turtles kept swimming right by us. She loves fish and loved to watch them swim.

She didn't know what to think of this golden statue...

Snakes always creep me out a little. Even in cages. This guy was enormous.

We even let her explore a little.

We took the train...

And then at the end of the day, this guy decided to come right up to where we were standing and eat his snack.

What a great day. I needed that. :-)

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…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 

 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
