Just Another Manic Monday...

This weekend was certainly a flurry of activity and we got resolution on Jason's new job - he was officially offered the position on Friday and will start at the beginning of July! I am so proud of him. He has really worked so hard for a long time to get here and is just ecstatic about the opportunity.
He even gets his very own home corner office to spend his time in. Pretty jealous!!
He is going to be traveling quite a bit in this position, so it's still up in the air how this is going to affect me and my job. I certainly don't want to leave my daughter at daycare from 7 to 6 everyday, and as of now, he is able to get her early every afternoon, so it works well. But he has flown a couple days during this interview process, and even him flying for the day, he isn't home until after 5, which leaves me to drop her off and pick her up by myself. I am sure God has all of these plans in His hands, so we will see how all of this pans out!
We spent time with my dad yesterday - just a nice afternoon relaxing.

He is really bummed out because he has no beautiful women to spend any time with.
I got to see this little cutie, which always makes me happy...


She is so fun! She was enjoying a good book here. She liked the page so much, she ripped it out and started to eat it. Talk about Reader's Digest! Ha ha, get it?? Eating it, digest, man, I am full of funnies.
I also got Avery some new shoes and made sure to get a pair with lots of growing room.

She just loves wearing big people's shoes! She came marching into the bathroom with these on, dragging them along the groud. Such a cutie!

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 …
