Kids In the Hood....

This whole weekend has kind of been a blur.

Friday, my friend Kate came down to hang out with me. I was SOOO excited to see her. She still lives in McKinney and now that I moved away from there, we don't get to see each other nearly as often. She drove down and spent the night. Even my sister Leslie got to hang out with us!

We went to Louie Louie's Dueling Piano Bar, and I can't remember the last time I laughed so much. It was great fun! We caught up at dinner, but then we just went and had a good time!

At the end of the night, we were all drinking coke, water, and taking Tylenol. My, how things change after you turn 30.

Saturday was my work picnic. It was HOT! Avery hung in there though. We went to this cool park in Irving that had a really neat playground. If it hadn't been so hot, it would have been awesome!

She gets the rosiest cheeks, always has!

She even played some games with Daddy!

"I'm HOT Mom!"

Saturday night was Colbi's last shower. I can't believe she will be here in less than a month! I will be gone for vacation July 9-12, Brooke, you hold her in till I get back!

The shower was alot of fun. Lots of friends of my family's that we've grown up with. There are four toddlers now, they were pretty entertaining. I guess that's how life is, as adults, when you've hung around the same people for years and years, and you've run out of things to talk about, life gives you grandkids. Ha!

I'd like to thank my contributing photographers this week, Brooke and Dave, for the pictures I am about to show you!

And here are a large group of adults that have molded and shaped a new generation of us youngsters throughout the years. Now that's scary.

Have a great Monday!

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 …
