Manic Monday

So, Avery is just, so big.

Terrible picture, I know. But her hair is getting so long too!

Jason and I are trying our best to keep teaching her new words and things she doesn't know. Right now, she is using two words pretty consistently. Tonight, she surprised me when she told the dogs to "go away." Whenever she is eating, they just follow her around or sit by her chair and wait for her to drop food. Lately, Molly has been getting brave and just taking it right out of her hand. So tonight, she just said "Go away!" Pretty funny.

She is definitely beginning to use three word phrases as well. "Help you mommy" (which means help ME mommy). "Pops come here" stuff like that. So pretty much anything where she directs other people on what to do. Bossy little thing! We are working on her writing her name, recognizing letters, counting to 20, colors, stuff like that. NOT that she can do any of that yet, but hey, never hurts to try! We are trying to correct words she says incorrectly or point out new things she doesn't know. She just loves to learn, so we are trying to keep up! She is learning how to spit when she brushes her teeth. She is learning to be patient (not effectively, but hey.) She is also getting to the point where she is annoying her older sister. Good job, Avery. That's what you are supposed to do as a little sister.

I think this weekend, we will get a potty. Zoinks.

Thursday is the day we've decided to meet with Brooke, Dave and Colbi. I wanted to make sure I was totally and completely well before I was in her presence again! We are pretty excited. Gigi and Pops will be there, so that should be interesting. I have a feeling she will be like her deal ole' mother, when the twins come along. My grandfather's favorite story to tell me about when my sisters were babies was that I took his hand, led him to a bedroom and closed the door and said, "OK Pappaw, NO BABIES IN HERE!" I have a feeling Little Miss Priss is going to be similiar.

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 …
