Thanksgiving 2013

We drove down to San Antonio last week to visit Nawnie and Poppy for Thanksgiving! Can I just say, I haven't been down to SA for a long time, and man, is it NICE! We were in the north part of town and it was so beautiful and new. It was definitely a nice place to visit, wouldn't mind going back and spending more time in all of the restaurants!!
Thanksgiving day we ate and wanted to lay around, but Nawnie wasn't having any of that. :-) We went to a really really nice local school playground and spent some time playing b-ball and chasing Avery. She found a mound of dirt and was pretty happy for a good half an hour before it was time to leave. My child, through and through.
My selfie. Ha ha.

Friday, we ended up going down to the Riverwalk. I really thought it would have been more crowded, but it didn't end up getting bad until we were ready to go.

We stopped and had some pizza. Apparently, Avery wasn't into taking pictures. I love this face, I think it's hilarious.

She loosened up, though.

Then, onto the Alamo. In front, there were some cool places to take pictures.

Every time I even think of the Alamo, all I can hear is Jan Hooks from Pee-Wees Big Adventure.

She was tuckered out!!

We had such a nice time - looking forward to seeing the other part of the family in a few weeks!!

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 …
