My Next Decorating Venture....


Except, this is what it's become...


We've kept the toys up in the foyer part of the house since we moved in, just because Avery was still little and we felt like she was too little to play in her room by herself. Not that she's so big now, but at some point, we knew we didn't want to girls' toys to take over the front of the house.

I want a grown up entry way! So, since we got this...


I am feeling like the entry way needs to be more of a sitting room. We have a great window seat that is completely going to waste. It's begging for some new curtains and beautiful throw pillows, two wing back chairs and a sunburst mirror. I can see it in my head now. I've been looking for wing back chairs on Craigslist for months now, but they are really, really expensive, even the ugly ones. Hopefully something will come through soon. I like refinishing furniture, and will even try my hand at some easy fabric jobs. But I think reupholstering wing back chairs is beyond my scope, so I will see what kind of chairs I can find on the cheap.

I am thinking...


as a good start for a color palette....

I love the way this chair is, with the blanket like this (not the colors)..

I really want chairs that are comfortable to sit in, otherwise the space would just really go to waste.

Love this window seat. So not what I could do with my space, but still...


Oh yeah. Super excited about this.

Good luck with your foyer makeover. I'm in the middle of my own and I'm as excited as I can tell you are.

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 …
