What's going on in Whitehead World?

I feel like a terrible mother (not really) cause I haven't really taken many pictures this week. My phone seems to be on constant low battery and I feel like I am in a wurlwind of activity, so pictures are just the last thing on my mind.
 
We officially move tomorrow into our new house, and we couldn't be happier! My daughter is spending the night with her Pops (Gigi will be out of town) and her Aunt Leslie. And if things work out, she will be going to her first official football/high school football game to watch the Mighty Gophers!
 
 
I wanted to make her a shirt that said, "I am not a Gopher yet, but my Pops sure was!" But alas, I had no time.
 
Last night, I spent part of my evening spray painting 91 light and electrical outlet covers. They were dingy and in need of some TLC. And of all the things I wanted to spend my money on, new light and electrical outlet covers just ain't one of them. So one $4 can of white spray paint later, they look good as new. Now, tonight, Jason and I will be putting them all back on. Sheesh!
 
Everything is packed, now all we need is to get it all moved. The movers come tomorrow, I am so glad we are not moving the furniture ourselves. But we are moving the smaller stuff and the boxes we can carry. We live less than a mile away, so it's nice to be able to run a carload of things up the street.
 
You know, I think I was putting the cart in front of the horse, thinking about furniture and decor for this house. As it turns out, these are the items of more importance at this time...
 
New vacuum that doesn't smell like dog
 
 
Ceiling fans for the living room
 
 
Thank you Mom, for reminding me about this one...
 
 
New dead bolts
 
 
TONS of these
 
 
Blinds for Jordan's room
 
 
NONE of these are fun. I would much rather be thinking about a new TV, a new dining room set, how I am going to decorate the walls, etc. But first things first, I guess, right? Like my dad and I talked about this morning, one thing at a time!!!

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 …
