Jordan's Room Reveal

So, our entire house has had an overhaul in the past two months. Jordan's room was a big one. He had an old futon, a dresser that was falling apart, and oh yeah. His room started out pink.


I found this dresser at a garage sale. I was blown away when I saw the exact same dresser in Better Homes and Gardens (they painted theirs a glossy green).


He got actual curtains, he got our old TV, and his room got reaaranged!


One thing I've always wanted to do in his room were hang posters. But I didn't want to just hang them. I found these frames at a garage sale for $3 each. They had really pretty pictures in them, but I knew I would like the posters better. Right now, he is REALLY into the Avengers, and has always been into Star Wars.




I used this table from the girls' room..


and painted it like this, in glossy black with metallic silver on the bottom.



My brother in law had some old fence posts that he was throwing away, so as an experiment, I painted them the colors of the room and nailed them together. I don't hate it, but I am not in love with it. But he likes it, so I guess that's all that matters, right?


Oh, and just so you know, to take all of these pictures I just kept moving Legos from one spot to another. I know this picture is blurry, but here is the desk. It's COVERED in Legos.


Legos will overtake your LIFE. I never realized how many he had until recently. They are EVERYWHERE. Ugh. Lego men, lego boats, lego jet planes, lego Ninjagos, LEGOS LEGOS LEGOS!!!

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 …
