Our Day At the Zoo!

We got invited to go to the Dallas Zoo with our friends this week - I was so glad we got to go because it's Avery first visit to the zoo this year. We haven't been to the Dallas Zoo in years. I just always assumed Fort Worth was better, but I have to say, the Dallas Zoo was amazing. It was really hot, but we got there early in the day and were able to see a lot. They also have a lot of air conditioned areas that have been remodeled. We had such an amazing time. All of the animals were out and interactive!
The giraffes were literally right up to the fence and we got to feed them! They are such beautiful animals.

We also got to see the predator encounter, which let us see the lions up close. They are huge animals!!

Even though snakes are always behind glass, they still always creep me out!! This snake somehow reminded me of Harry Potter... 
We were about to leave and decided to see if we could see the gorillas. This one was right by the glass. I don't know why, but he made me sad. I could look right in his eyes and there was just something oddly human about the way he looked at us. I am still glad Avery got to see them all.

Just another week and Avery gets to start school!

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.
