Fort Lauderdale!!

Jason was going to be going to Fort Lauderdale in October and so we planned on me tagging along. This weekend, I got to spend two nights in a gorgeous hotel on the beach in Florida.
 


 
The water was blue, the beach was white, and the air was warm, yet cool. We got to eat at this outdoor restaurant and watch the cruise ships set sail.





 
I spent Sunday hanging out by myself for a while because Jason was working. It was lovely having some alone time.



 
I know this seems so silly to write along with this post, but I can't help it. God gave the Israelites Memorial Stones to help them remember all of the things God had done for them after He delivered them from slavery in Egypt. He did this because as humans, we have a tendency to forget the great and wonderful things God does in our lives, especially when we constantly live in the next emergency or hard situation. This blog are my memorial stones. I remember this blog post more than any other...I remember writing it and I remember the feeling I had, of sheer and utter despair. I remember the feeling of being broke, of feeling like our lives were hanging on by a thread. I remember feeling like God was never going to answer our prayers. Answer our prayers, He did. I am not saying that if you are faithful, God will give you a trip to Florida. I am just saying that God heard my prayers. I don't know what tomorrow holds. I don't know what God has in store for our life. But I know that things are happening in ways I could have never dreamed. It never escapes my mind, the way the God has moved in my life and in my life with Jason. Never. I never take one single, solitary blessing for granted. Ever. I am glad I have these memorial stones to remember what God has done in my life.

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&#…
