What's been going on?

It has been a super busy few weeks!
 
I have been overwhelmed with positive feedback on my room and it's so encouraging! I appreciate all of the great comments. I am working (mentally) on the next space in my home that will be redone! It's going to take some motivation to get going on it, for sure.
 
Let's see - what else has been going on lately?
 
Donut Day...
 
 
Shopping...

 
Loving our hat...

 
Working at the office with mom...

 
Pajama day at school....

 
Flight of the Monarchs with Colbi...



 
And first time singing in Kids Choir at church!

 
Probably the most notable event was this...we have an elevated flower bed in our front yard and Jason accidently left a soaker hose on in it overnight. I showed up the next day around noon to this....
 



 
The whole front yard had water everywhere. I didn't really think anything of it because by the end of the day, it had dried up. The next morning, by sheer luck, I walked into Jordan's room to squishy carpet. Apparently, the water had saturated the ground so much (the flower bed shares a wall with his room), that the water came up through the cracks in the concrete and completely flooded his floor. So, we spent a whole day doing this.





 
Thank God I walked into his room when I did. And thank God we have a steam cleaner that was able to vacuum the water up. There was so much of it. The smell was pretty bad that next day and since we caught it fast, we don't have a mildew problem to deal with! I am also borderline excited because I learned how to rip up carpet and now, I will learn how to install laminate. So, as a DIY girl, there are worse things that could have happened!! Right now, it's just concrete. Just tearing up the carpet took us all day, installing laminate is another large job that we just haven't had time for.
 
Have a great week everybody!

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 …
