My Fall Essentials

Well, school finally got started, we took our last summer trip to the beach and the weather started getting cooler. Ok, it got cooler a couple of days last week. But, cool weather is still on the horizon!
 
The other day, I woke up to the cooler morning air and I couldn't resist getting into the fall mood.
 
Parachute, a luxury bedding company, inspired me to write about a few of my cozy fall essentials we have at our house. Without a doubt, the number one and two things we love for comfort in the cooler weather are pillows and blankets. I love blankets that are soft, fuzzy, and warm! I have several of these around my house in every room, ready to be used when laying down and watching a movie!
 
 
Fall shopping is always done around this time for both the kids and adults. As we walked into the store, my next favorite fall essential was on sale and staring right me - hoodies! In Texas, weather can change day by day and even hour by hour. It's often you wear a short sleeve shirt during the day but need a hoodie at night. I love soft but light hoodies that provide warmth but aren't too heavy and hot.

 
My next favorite fall essential is not only comfy but functional! I have quite a bit of marble floors in my house, which can be hard and cold. I love my memory foam fur lined house shoes They do keep my feet especially warm, so fall and winter is a great time to wear them. They are also hard soled on the bottom so provide protection in the outside as well, for when I go outside to enjoy my next favorite fall essential....
 
 
Coffee!
 
 
While I love coffee all year long, I find myself drinking a bit of iced coffee in the summer. Enjoying a hot cup of coffee is not appealing in 100+ degree weather. But there is nothing better than a hot cup of coffee on a nice, cool morning and luckily, there have been a couple of those mornings within the last couple of weeks and I'm ready for more!

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&#…
