Pics from the Playroom

We are finally at a stopping point with our playroom. We told ourselves we were going on a purchasing hiatus for the house for the holidays, but after seeing this jewel at a garage sale for $15 bucks, we just couldn't say no. Especially since playing in the playroom is actually something that is done alot lately. We got the Playstation and they just sit on the floor and stare at the TV. So, we were going to purchase some chairs from Walmart at some point, but $15 was much cheaper than our plan.

It's not perfect, but it works for a kids' playroom. I think there is leather conditioner that will make the leather look good as new, but right now, I am just glad there is something in there to sit on.
We traded in our non-working Wii, straight up, for a new Playstation. We will probably end up getting the new Wii at some point, but we are good without the Wii for now. The only reason we were using it, mostly, was to watch Netflix. Now, we have Roku (and it's awesome). Since Playstations play DVDs too, it was best to get it instead. We thought since we have movies that the kids could watch, that the Playstation was a good investment.

Per the usual, the schooldesk was a garage sale find. I painted it white and it looks pretty cool. Although, my dad said it was a politically incorrect desk, since it's right-handed. I think it's pretty cool and so does Pooh.
I find myself looking around areas like these cabinets, that are pretty much filled by the way, and wonder how any of our stuff EVER fit into a 1200 square foot apartment. These cabinets, I bet, will be painted some cool shade at some point in the far ahead future. They look so bare.
Another thing I am amazed by is how well our curtains have fit into this house. This door leads out to the sunroom.
I am so glad this room is pretty well done. The house really didn't feel that big to me and I realized it's because when you only go in two rooms, cause you don't have places to sit in others, of course it feels smaller. But now, as we get everything put together, it's just starting to really feel as big as it is. I love this house!

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 …
