Big Girl Bed Update

So, as you now, Avery moved in to her big girl bed around the middle of January. We were all prepared that she would get up, not go to bed, wonder around at night, and just sleep horribly. Well, much like everything else Avery does, none of this has happened at all. In fact, she won't even get out of her bed in the morning until we come get her. It's like there is an invisible fourth side that we can't see but that locks her in. We have NOT pushed her knowing otherwise. Our new bedtime routine consists of bath, her brushing her teeth, read a story, turn off the light and I rock and sing to her for about 5 minutes, then I tuck her in. Now, it's pretty funny because as I am leaving the room and walking down the hall, she and I will yell back and forth, "Good night!" and "I love you!" She goes right to sleep.
I really have no idea how I got such an easy kid. I don't know if or think that it's anything we've done, I think she is just a kid who deals very well with change and therefore, none of the transitions in her short little life have been difficult or frustrating, for her or for us. I am really, really, really, scared that the hard part is going to come one of these days! This is another reason why having another kid scares me, I just know I would be daring God to give me a challenge! Ha ha!
I really don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I think doing the whole crib to toddler bed thing, where you just remove one side, has really been the reason she's done so well. She isn't going to fit in that bed much longer, she is already getting pretty long, but I think putting her in a totally different bed straight from a crib would have made things much more difficult.
Well, I guess that's it for now! Have a good Sunday!

We left my daughter in the toddler bed until she was 6. A new bed was actually her birthday present this year. She had been in that bed from 20 months when we had to kick her out do the crib for #2! She was also our easy child and still is. Our son is the complete opposite.

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 …
