Muffins with Moms

Today, Avery's school had Muffins with Moms. I was glad to go and eat breakfast with her, except, the second we got there, she was like, "I want to go to my class." I was like, "If I give you a chocolate muffin, will you hang out with me for a minute??" She agreed.

In all seriousness, though, the child is really my shadow. I really love that she just loves me so much and more than that, loves to be around me. She really is a mommy's girl, for sure. We've been going through a not-so-great stage of the 3's lately. I am really ready for her to be out of this stage, it's hard negotiating with a strong willed, smart 3 year old, who is fickle, stubborn, and independent. Sounds like someone I know. Who could that be???
Well, today, I pleasantly surprised to step on the scale and see that I'd lost 5 pounds! This weight loss challenge is going really well and I am doing really good at sticking with it. Jason and I joined the YMCA a couple of days ago and I was able to go to my first aerobics class, which was so much fun, I stayed for two. (Our Zumba instructor is great!!) Today, I am sore all over and can't wait to go back in the morning, so that's always a good sign.
On another positive note, hopefully, by this time next week, I'll be an active, licensed Realtor!! I can NOT WAIT to get started. There have been a few obstacles, but I'm nothing if not persistent. So, I am hoping! Keep me in mind if you are buying or selling a house!!!
I am also giving my testimony about my experience working at the Pregnancy Center on Sunday at church for Sanctity of Life. I am really excited to share and hope it will make a difference with collecting items and donations we need!!

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…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 

 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
