Some Changes...

We've been going through a bit of a transition at the Whitehead household the last month or so. I haven't really talked too much about it because I wasn't ready, to be honest. It's just a lot of change and I've been trying to figure it out in my head.
As of three weeks ago last Friday, I am no longer a full time work out of home employee.
I can't believe I just said that.
It's been the plan for several months now for me to go into real estate and it was always assumed I'd be doing that part time, while keeping my full time job. Plans kind of changed when Jason got his promotion. He'd always has a job that allowed him a lot of flexibility. In sales, especially after you've been in a position for a while, it just sort of happens that way. He could take Avery to daycare and pick her up, he could take her to doctor's appointments, he could even do chores around the house in the afternoon, while I was at work. I had some flexibility in my hours, but not much. When I worked from home in July, which was his first month in his new position (at home also), I realized just how much dedication this new position was going to require for him. I took on a lot of the household responsibility. When I went back full time to the office in August, I realized it was going to be really hard to make this work on a day to day basis. Especially since he'd be starting to travel a lot more and I would be the only one to do everything.
At first, my job was really eager to work with me and let me either go down to part time or let me work from home a few days a week. They didn't want to see me go. We talked about it for a while and were just going to see how things worked out. I was about to have to take off a few weeks for surgery, so we would see how things would pan out. I knew my heart wasn't in coming back to the office. I knew that there was a different path God was calling me down, but I was really hesitant about it. After a while, it became clear what was going to happen. We both decided it was best if I didn't come back and we parted ways on excellent terms. I felt OK with that.
Now, I am going to be focusing on being a real estate agent, something I've always thought about doing, just never been able to do. It's a job I can have flexibility at and also work from home. Just so everyone doesn't weigh in on my schedule, I am not in it to make a million dollars, but I do want to contribute financially in some capacity. I think this will work out. I am not sure how it will all end up working out, but I know I can take it one day at a time and see how things go. I am pretty excited.
Well, that's my last few months in a nutshell. You just never know what plan God has for your life.
I leave you with a picture of a kid with no worries, except not dribbling her fudgsicle on her pants.

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 …
