Is It Always "ALL" God?

This whole weekend has been like a dream. I still can't believe we are actually moving into this house! It got me to thinking about God's plan for our lives. We hear it's "All God!" when good things happen in our lives. And it's is, for sure. But I also think we don't give ourselves enough credit.
God obviously has empowered us with choice, which in my opinion, is more powerful than any amount of money you can have. When you make choices about your life, that impacts it in so many ways, both good and bad. While God knows our lives and knows our life plan, we have to make good choices and listen to God to really see the good God can do for your life.
Jason and I made some bad financial choices in our life that we have paid for, and are having to pay for, now. Because of those choices, it has really limited our ability to make the most of our lives, financially. But I feel like we have worked for a long time and done our duty to fix those issues. We have sacrificed and gone without and tried to listen to God's plan as much as we can because we really had an idea of where we wanted to be. God worked out the timing, but we kept our eye out, and looked for opportunities, every day, that would be good for our future. I feel like I have spent countless hours on CL, realtor websites, talking with people, etc. trying to find something that would work. So while people might think this kind of thing "happens overnight" or "just fell in our laps," that is not exactly accurate.  I think God wants your life to be blessed but He also knows blessings should come at the right time and for the right reasons.
I don't know, this was just all something I was thinking about. I pray to continue asking for God's advice in my life. He is there to give you the right answers. I fully trust His guidance and even if I have to be patient sometimes, it always works out. I think I have alot more patience now than I ever had before, so what a good lesson I've learned! Ha ha!
I took these pictures the other day - what a cutie!
Blurry cheese!

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 …
