Decor For A Large House

Of course, there are about 70 gazillion ideas floating around in my head about decor for this house. Oh my goodness, you guys should see it. I went to look at it last night - they are painting every single door, every cabinet, every closet, every shelf, every door frame. They painted the crown molding and the new base boards and will start with the walls and ceilings this week. SO exciting!

This house is going to be absolutely gorgeous when we move in. The painting and updating of the things I mentioned are just going to be amazing.

This house is large. Very large. The ceilings are tall, the walls are big, the rooms are huge. I am concerned with finding decor that goes with the flow of the house. It's also a ranch style house, and everything has unique arrangements (as far as the walls and flow of the rooms, etc). The patio is so pretty in front, and I just know that I am going to have to decorate for each and every holiday. I need a very large supply of wreaths.

As many pictures as I look at on Pinterest, I just know that decor is something you have to feel. I know I am going to need to move in and see the walls and feel what it's like to look at them from sitting in my couch while watching TV. There are so many times in my current home that I would say, "This would be so pretty here...." but this house is a different house and it's going to need to be treated differently. It also has some extra rooms and spaces I have just never had before, so it will be interesting to see how they turn out...

We have a playroom that is going to be wonderful. I have a feeling we will have lots of guests over and having a playroom just for the kids is going to be awesome.

I would love to do something like this on the wall, but I am hesitant about painting the wall with chalkboard paint, especially since it's getting a great coat of paint now..

Or this (a little girly)...

Oh Jenna, I can't wait to see pics of the new house! I didn't know y'all got a new house. Congrats!!!! I am soooo jealous that you have painters. I am the painter at our new house, and it is getting old quick!!! So happy for y'all!
We really lucked out with that - the woman who we are buying from had already contracted the painters before we met her, so it just worked out. This house is gorgeous, but there was padded, silk wallpaper in one of the bedrooms and bathroom. Apparently that was real big in the 60's??? I would have had no clue how to take that off. Your house is looking great, I love the floors!

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 …
