About Me

My name is Jenna and I am a new mom and wife, along with a step-mom, sister, daughter and aunt. This "domestic" life is new to me, as I spent my entire 20's being single. I was never a person who wanted to be married or a mother, I loved being single and having a big social life. However, I often got twitches of yearning to be a part of a couple and to have someone to share my life with. That man came to be as a 29 year old and now, here I am with a new life and new responsibilities!

Being a mother is a surprise that has been such a blessing in my life. I love my daughter Avery and every day, she teaches me how much I want to live life to the fullest and take advantage of every opportunity. She makes me want to follow my dreams and be more well rounded. I want to be a great mother to her who can teach her about life, both the pitfalls and blessings. I want to look at her one day and say, "See? I wanted to try it and I did and this is what I learned from it..." Having her and my husband in my life have truly begun to teach me about the woman I can be the woman I want to become. I have learned more in the last 2 years of my life than I ever thought I could.

God is my number ONE! My faith has grown leaps and bounds in the past 2 years as well, and I do my very best to live my life the way He wants and asks me to, which isn't always easy. I have learned when you live in His purpose for your life, things tend to go more smoothly. Patience and faith are two areas He has challenged me in the last 2 years, as my life has undergone such massive changes, which have required me to give up control to Him. Every day is a learning opportunity for me and it gets more and more exciting to watch Him work and to see the opportunities He presents me with.

I am new to blogging (seriously, that is) and I am having SO MUCH FUN WITH IT!

I look forward to what is to come!

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 …
