My Movie House Style

I have been giving alot of thought lately to what is my real house style. What do I really want my house to look like? What colors do I like? Furniture? Accessories?
I guess I am not really one to pour over Pinterest all the time for decorative ideas. I mean, I do. Just not all the time. I follow decor blogs because I love to see ideas people have to decorate, especially when it's really cute but inexpensive. But if I really want to get carried away with a house, the decor of a house, the architecture and layout, then all I have to do is watch a Nora Ephron movie.
It doesn't matter which one, they are just all beautifully decorated houses. I mean, houses that only incredibly rich people could afford to live in, but hey. I am getting carried away here, right?
You've Got Mail - every time I watch this movie I want to lay in that big poofy bed and I just love the warmth of her house.
And who wouldn't want to read a book in this cozy bookstore?
And who doesn't love the shabby sheekness of Meg Ryan's house in Sleepless in Seattle?
But the grandest of them all. The momma house of them ALL is this one....
I want to go there.
This kitchen is TO DIE FOR.
The taupes, the creams, the beauty of it all!
Her room, I want it! I mean, who needs two big lounge chairs in your room, really? But hey. It works!
Ugh, this dining room set, the big chairs, the plate wall. I want it.
And the ocean right outside of your living room, for all the eyes to see from a beautiful wall of windows? Yes, please!
Man. I wish someone would borrow my house for a movie and decorate it, Ephron-style.

A close runner up would be the houses in the movie The Holiday.

That BED!

LOVE the cottage.

I think I am seeing a trend here?

Maybe I need to use these as my muse???

What's your movie house style?

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 …
