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…

My Trip To Rockport

My best friend moved to Rockport 3 years ago when her husband was offered the job as airport manager. His sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephews and mother all lived in that town, and two years ago, the construction on their newly built homes was completed. (his sister and brother in law, and my friend and husband built homes side by side)
A week ago Thursday, she called me and asked if she could bring her family up to DFW and would I be willing to have a few stay with us. She told me that there was a mandatory evacuation in Rockport, but they were thinking it would only be until Monday. Of course, I always love seeing her, so I was pretty excited for an excuse for them to come up and spend the weekend. As the day went by, they were predicting a more severe storm, and the family decided to get a hotel room in Waco, close to their son, who went to Baylor. They wanted to be closer to Rockport and brought animals on the trip, so thought a hotel would be the best option. My friend&#…
