IBC Reunion

In the last 15 years, our class of people from church have gotten together to reminisce. It was really just any of the girls in our group of friends that could come. Over the years, it grew to guys also (just because we married a couple of them, ha ha). Well, we started having kids and those get togethers slowed to nothing. Four years ago was the last time we've all gotten together. I called up my friend Tanna and said, "We really need to get together again." She said, " I was just thinking the same thing the other day! I can get a bounce house and we can have it at my house.." then we decided on a date, and put an invitation out of Facebook. Then, we decided to spread the word to any other youth that might like to come. Then, we decided to spread the word to any of our leaders, Sunday school teachers, parents, or D-Now host homes that wanted to come. Within minutes, the invite spread to over 90 people! We've decided to make this either a yearly or semi-yearly get together. Next time, though, we will spread the word a little better. I think there are alot of people who don't check their invites and didn't even realize we had this I saw 57 people who still hadn't RSVPd. I say this because those of you who are reading this and don't know why you didn't know about this, it's probably because I didn't make sure to call you up and talk to you after I hadn't heard from you. Let me know if you'd like to be on the next invite list and we will make sure to give you the details!
Anyway, it was an absolutely gorgeous day today. We had SOOO many kiddos there, it was so wonderful to see how families have grown and see us all as parents. Such a wonderful time of togetherness!
Tanna, I am borrowing pictures from your Facebook page!
This was me after looking in Brittany's scrapbook album about pictures of us in middle or high school in our bikinis. Yeah, I am so glad we didn't have social networking sites back in those days and that they are safely tucked in the confines of her house.
Everyone who came


We tried to get the to put their arms around each other, like we did. But, to no avail.

I only posted pictures that had Jason or I in them. I am going to try and set up a Facebook account that has them all in there where they are easily accessible.

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 …
