Avery's Birthday Party

Avery had a superhero party this year! Do you know how hard it is to find girl superhero party stuff? It's hard. The lack of appropriate girl superhero toys (and I mean, girls that are superheroes, not superheroes that are purple and pink) is atrocious. Three of the girls that Avery goes to daycare with where superheroes for Halloween, I am thinking they would like to have a cool party once in a while.
Anywho, she had a fun time! This was the first year I invited her friends from church and daycare so she had a blast!!
(Sorry Brooke, I love this picture so much)
And she had fun "opening" her presents. I actually opened them and at one point she just ran away to go play.

I got the kids little party favors and we decided to take a picture. Pretty handsome if you ask me!!

Such a cute picture, especially the fact that she is wearing her new princess gown with her black sparkly boots.


She has played with each and every one of her toys, all day yesterday that is all she did. She loves each one of them! Thank you all who were able to come!!
Yesterday, she grabbed her new laptop and went in to "work" with daddy in his office.

My sister got her this awesome bouncy thing and Avery literally spent about seven hours in it yesterday. She would take one toy at a time, go in there, and either bounce or just watch TV. Avery had a cough so we spent all day in our PJs resting and I think it worked.

Avery got to open our gifts on Saturday, her actual birthday. She got a new camera and the Tangled movie on DVD (we only had it recorded on DVR from ABC Family, so now she has her own copy!) By last night, Avery had taken over 300 pictures. Most of them were blurry or black, but a few we could make out! Especially the one where she took a picture of me in the shower, we have the frosty glass so you could actually make out what it was. So, maybe the whole camera thing wasn't a good idea. :-)
 Happy birthday again, Avery!!

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 …
