Super Excited - Netflix Profiles is Coming!

In our house, we probably watch more Netflix than anything else. I love it mainly for the TV shows and Jason loves it for action movies. I will also add several chick flicks from time to time. Jordan watches Merlin and other older-kid movies, Sophia watches She-Ra and Littlest Pet Shop, and Avery watches Sesame Street and Super Why.
Without a doubt, the kids watch Netflix more than either Jason or I do, so in our recommended sections, or all of the other streaming videos, they mostly end up being stuff for kids. It gets very aggravating because most of the time, I will end up having to search for stuff I want to watch (I know, first-world problems), or end up floating through a sea of little kids movies, The Avengers cartoons, or all four of the Mission: Impossible movies and any and all movies or TV shows kind of like it.
Beginning this month, for the same monthly price of $7.99, they are now adding profiles onto Netflix to allow each member of the family to log in as themselves, allowing them to only have movies and TV shows that cater to their tastes. Hallelujah!! From what I understand, you can have up to 5 profiles per account. I have also heard that, unfortunately, Roku won't have the profiles up and running for a while. That's a bummer. We also get Netflix through our TV and it's even less sophisticated than our Roku. Not quite sure why all streaming devices are so different, but hey, at least it's on the horizon, right?
Netflix now apparently has some great original programming. I've heard a few of the TV shows they've created are pretty awesome. I probably need to watch those at some point.
I have a feeling before too long, things with cable with be going the way of corded phones and how we watch stuff will be completely different. Hopefully, Netflix will stay at the low monthly price of $7.99 and I can continue to get great stuff to watch!!

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 …
