Rodan & Fields Giveaway

I was provided with a free Rodan & Fields mini-facial in return for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Hmm, you know how there are always those things that - no matter how out there you are with yourself, how transparent or bold you pride yourself on being - you still feel self-conscious about? Well, one of mine is my skin. 

I didn't have a horrible teen experience. I'm not having the worst breakouts ever as an adult. It's just been a steady pain in the butt and apparently my face feels the need to remember every issue it has ever had - in my opinion, the result is an uneven, bumpy looking complexion which annoys me in pictures take from the side. (Seriously, to the degree that you won't see any personal pictures of me in this post!)

Recently, I was asked to try out the Rodan & Fields mini-facial. I have to say I think it was very helpful in cleaning out the pores, smoothing out the skin and giving my skin a healthy-looking sheen. Obviously I didn't use it for an extended period of time so I can't tell you if the results would have continued to improve, but based on the results I did get, I would think they would have. 

The first step is the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste - it scrubs great but melts into soft feeling skin that makes you truly feel like you've had a facial. There's also a lip and full body version that I would love to try. Unfortunately, my bumpiness doesn't stop at my chin.

Following that you apply a Night Renewing Serum that seriously feels like you're rubbing a silk blanket against your skin. It comes in a small pod for the mini-facials and I squeezed out every last drop. It was too bad there wasn't enough for the rest of my skin. Ha!

Fair warning these products are not inexpensive and will probably be a splurge for some of you. But if you're going to splurge, this is one product I could recommend. If you think of it in comparison to a facial at a spa that lasts an hour . . . you could split the container of this product with a spouse or sibling and still make it last several months! In that sense, it becomes much more economical and long-lasting. 

Today, you have the opportunity to win a tub of this scrub for your very own facial experience.

There are two different ways to enter:

#1 - Take this survey and if you don't win the tub of Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, you will receive a sample of the mini-facial anyway!

#2 - Share this post through Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Google+ and receive an additional entry for each method. (Please tag @MelStuffBlog or MelissaStuff Blog so I can verify your entry.)

Leave a comment for each entry please. 

I'm super excited to see who wins . . . good luck!

This giveaway will end at midnight on July 26th. The winner will be notified by email and will have 24 hours to respond before the prize will be passed on to the next name chosen.

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

I will say waking up in a …

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
