Playing in the Dirt

When I was little, I used to go to my Mimi and Pappaw's in the country. They had a big lot of land and a garden and lots of dirt. I would play in that dirt for hours. Even at my house, I would make mud pies and just play and get dirty and muddy. I remember just playing by myself for hours and hours outside, with nothing more than some old tupperware containers, sticks, and a big patch of dirt. It was awesome.
Well, Sophia and Avery have proven to me that this tradition has not changed. In fact, that's what they love to do in our backyard the most. I love it.
The just come in filthy, and we have to give them a bath immediately after, but it's totally worth it.

Then, we heard a ear piercing shreik/cry, from Avery. That is the worst sound because you just have no idea what you are about to walk up to. It scares me a little, thinking one of these days I am going to see one of their arms broken or tons of blood, but this was not one of those times. But it is the first time she's ever really broken skin. I mean, it was barely a scrape on her hand, and she was just crying and crying. I said, "do you want a band-aid?" And I gave her a Barbie one, and the crying immediately stopped and she ran outside to show everyone else.
Here she is admiring it:
It was only on for about two minutes, and then it was pulled off because it was in her way of playing. Awesome, I have a little trooper on my hands.

It was kind of cool, but such a beautiful day!

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 …
