Dining Room Tour, New Furniture!

I am so fortunate to have a lot of people in my life to look out for me when it comes to furniture. I guess they know I will just love it and use it! So when my broker called me and said one of her clients was wanting to give her dining set and china hutch to a loving home before she moved, she called me and I immediately said yes!!
 
I saw some distant pictures of it before I went and looked personally, and I thought for sure I would want to paint it black and redo my living and dining area yellow, gray and black. That all changed the moment I got the pieces in my house. They were in such good shape, I couldn't bare to touch them with paint, so I just left them as is and did some updating with my brown and turquoise scheme. I was getting tired of blue, to be honest, but the furniture gave me a boost of love with it again. I'm not completely finished with all of it, but this is the dining room.
 
Everything was in excellent condition, with the exception of the back of one of the chairs, which will be fixed soon.

 
A hutch has been on my wish list for quite some time, I was so glad when I saw the condition this one was in! I now finally have a place to show off my wedding china.
 
 
I got my gallery wall started again. It's miles from being finished, but it's a good start!

 
Those curtains I stitch witched five years ago sure have held up.

 
Here is just a little progression of the room so far...still not 100% where I want it, but certainly a much better improvement!
 
At move in...
 
 
Just recently around Valentine's...
 
 
And now!

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 …
