Just a Little Summer Update!

Our summer has been fast and furious lately! We are smack dab in the middle of VBS week but up till now, our summer has consisted of a lot of Six Flags and Hurricane Harbor!

We watched Jurassic Park with the kids for the first time (awesome) and The Lost World the next night (terrible). We really are excited that Sophia is getting old enough to start watching the movies we enjoy. For the last few years, each of the kids has basically been in different stages, so movie night together has been challenging. Avery went to bed and the four of us stayed up and watched it.

I blinded the boys with my flash!

Sophia and I continued our theater watching spree for this year with a performance of Shrek at the Uptown Theater in Grand Prairie. I'm so glad this is an interest we both share; I relish our times together when we go to these performances. This is our third show to see this year, the other two being the Wizard of Oz and Newsies. I can't wait until she is old enough and we can do a theater trip to NYC. It would be a dream come true. Avery is still too little to sit through the whole thing without being bored but before too long, I see these events being Whitehead Girls Outings!

Father's Day started out at church with breakfast, followed by a lunch at Olive Garden and golf. All of us had a great time!!

Jordan is turning out to be quite the little golfer. We started out finding him a club or two and a small bag, but when Jason got a new set, Jordan got his old ones. He asks every weekend to play. I wish he was here more, Jason loves having a live-in golf partner!!

Up next in our summer is a vacation in July. We were planning on going to Broken Bow, but with all the rain, there are still parts of the park closed and we didn't want to chance going in case of additional flooding. So, we cancelled the cabin and tried to find somewhere else to go, and just couldn't. So we are doing a staycation this year! There are so many things in DFW that we've both wanted to do but haven't done with the kids, either because of cost or distance. We have so many things on the agenda, including lots of eating out!! I can't wait!

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 …
