Bad Blogger!

I have just really fallen behind on the blogging lately! Not that anyone cares or anything :-) But it's not like we haven't had stuff going on these last weeks!!
Our city got a new Dairy Queen and we are all pretty excited about it. Like, really excited. Like, you'd have thought the Royal Wedding came back through our town or something. But, we had to go and get a Blizzard!!
Avery had her first ice cream of the season from the ice cream truck. We won't be getting ice cream from him anymore, either. $7 for two things, I don't think so! But Avery liked it, as evidenced by the dribbling of chocolate down her shirt (and shorts. and shoes.)

Avery loves my heels. LOVES them. The other day, she was aggravated because I was wearing them to church and she didn't get to. "Cam I wear them, mom???" (Cam, not can!)

Our town had a very cool festival the other day and we got to go! Avery is 4'2 and can ride all of the rides. My stepdaughter wasn't 4'2 until the third grade! Insane! She loved most all of the ones we tried except the little roller coaster. She did NOT like that. But she rode this little motorcycle ride a bunch!

Avery and I went to the library and she got to read. I am looking forward to story times this summer for sure!

Avery came into the kitchen and proudly announced this was her super cape. Looks like one to me!

We got to hang out with our Colbi the other day while her mom was at work! I looked around in the car and saw them playing footsies. So cute.
They look so big. Of course, Avery wasn't happy unless she was wearing her Tangled dress.

They look so big. Here they are when they were little. Avery is actually about Colbi's age in this picture!
Colbi loved trying on my shoes!

Apparently these kids like to try on their uncles and aunts shoes because Avery did that with Dave, too.
We went outside and collected things in our basket!

My parents also did some gardening the other day and Avery helped them with the "dugging."
And got to water some plants!!

Such an exciting time!

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 …
