This blog consists of a variety of things. Mostly the random thought of a single mom that likes/loves...life, family, friends, reading, red wine, coffee, funny movies, traveling, retail therapy, crafting, walking in the rain, the wind, the water, music, dancing, and love (when it works). I loathe humidity, sweating, slow drivers/movers, defiant children, and Mondays!
I started blogging as a way to display all of my craft creations, as I continue to evolve, so does my blog! I am hoping to make it a place of solace, where I can relate to release....enjoy the ride!
My son is a senior! I was home today, (his 2nd day of school, but we have off) so I got to see him leaving, driving to school, no more school bus! I had a similar feeling when he went to Kindergarten, very melancholy, that was the start of his school years with mommy and this is the end! We had a few rough patches but so far we got through it all. Now College applications start and another part of his life begins, slowly separating from home and getting out on his own. The time flies so quickly and I can't say that enough, make sure you take time in between to smell the flowers, take long walks, hug your kids and don't worry so much about the toilet not being flushed lol Another era in his life means another one in mine as well,( oh wait, I still have the 9 year old lol)
What a whirlwind these last few weeks have been. I am so glad to have today and tomorrow off, just to gather myself. I still have plans for everyday but at least it will be relaxing. The business is going well so far, I will try my hardest to keep the momentum going. I am in the process of searching for people who I believe can do the business well to be my partners, so far I have a few prospects and one ready to come on board! These are exciting times and I will keep you guys posted! I am reading a book about the first year in Network Marketing and it says to stop researching and get to work lol, but I am still going to finish it! I am working too, just at my own pace, strong and steady!
I have no pictures of projects just yet, I made a few cards but nothing post worthy, as soon as I do, I will get on here with them! Hugs.....Roni
I am excited and a bit nervous about my Launch Party next week! I keep having weird dreams, so I deduce I must be a bit nervous (although I don't feel nervous) in my subconscious mind. So, if you haven't RSVP'd yet, please do so ASAP! everyone is invited :)
Hello my blogger friends, (always remember you were the 1st!) I expect great things to come as I continue on this mission of mine to master the art of blogging! Summer has kicked my blogging to the curb, I have been to the far East,( well not that far,just Bermuda but it is East of here!) and I have been to the far West (5 hours far! all the way to Cabo!) but I am back with a blast and have so much to share. My News is that I have started a new venture and I am so excited about it! I am working for a company called Arbonne International, (brandy new and still training)
Arbonne International distributes skin care products unparalleled in quality and effectiveness developed in Switzerland, the company started in 1975 (yes they have been around that long!)
Arbonne's skin care products, based on botanical principles, came to the US in 1980 and are now shared throughout the world through Arbonne's network of Independent Consultants.(That's me!) Arbonne's product line now includes both inner and outer health and beauty products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits and results!
The wonderful thing about Arbonne is that it's not just about great products, it's also about great people. I have met some wonderful ladies already and they are serious, smart but fun and down to earth people, (just like me :) )so I felt I fit right in. I will take you on this journey with me through learning, experiencing and growing (hopefully) with this company....I will keep you posted as I post some giveaways, discounts and lots of fun stuff, hang in there!
Well this is the beginning of the end of summer, I am back from Cabo and no more vacations planned :( But I had a great time~~ good food, good place, good people, would definitely return! I had some relaxing adventures such as the jazz sunset cruise, so peaceful and we got some great scenic photos I want to make into posters for my office and of course I compromised with Jerry and let him choose an activity as well. It's all about compromise right ? lol anyway his choice~~ ATV'ing ! It was my first time, I thought I was going to die! Going down the steep desert mountains, almost falling into cactus and dead tree branches, all in the name of love I guess....it was an adventure though. Everyone new I was an amateur when I showed up in white shorts and flip flops LMAO, when he showed us how to start the thing with out foot, I was like you have got to be kidding me! We had to lift the pedal with our foot to get it in gear and I had flip flops on! That was longest 3 hours of my life! He also wanted to Zip line and parasail (did I say I was afraid of heights?) I had to draw the line somewhere! Our last activity was the party boat, that was lots of fun! The food was delish! Our favorite place was Desperados, if you go to Cabo that is a must stop! We also found this little taco stand, Gordo Lele's taco stand where you get tacos for $1.50, can't beat that and they were soooo good! Thinking about it now makes me want a taco! Here are some of the some photos to help us remember the good times we had, hope you enjoy them! Our view from the room, bliss... Jerry taking Pics during our ATV tour, he loves taking pic's (this is where the movie "Troy" was filmed) Me during the ATV break (with my white shorts on~ they were brown when we finished!) My favorite place to be at 6AM in Cabo, this is me time (Jerry sleeps till 10 but I got him up at 8 most days) I finished my bookclub book, it was great~ THE HELP Relaxing at night by the firepit.... The view of the resort, beautiful, pure bliss....
It's been a while, May and June are the busiest times at work and this year I didn't seem to get much time to do what I enjoy, not to mention my camera was broken and I was not happy about that. I managed to fix my camera (I was happy I didn't have to buy another new one!) and I have been the busy camper over the last few months. I recently returned from my cruise to Bermuda with Jordan, it was a nice week and Bermuda was beautiful. I got a lot of reading done because we were at sea for THREE DAYS and the pool was tiny considering the number of people trying to get in it. Check out the picture on the Lido deck and the small pool: Needless to say I did not get in, but Jordan was like a fish in it EVERYDAY it didn't rain~ Here is a scenic view of on of the many beautiful beaches~ And lastly on our way into the Port in NY which is the way to go, no flying was the best~ Now I am washing clothes and packing for my next trip to Cabo with Jerry! I cannot wait. I promise to be back soon with more pics....really!!!
Thank You to all of the men and women who put their lives on the line for us everyday so that we can all continue to live the American Dream! Update on my no spend month~ to sum it up, it was a complete flop from day 1! LOL I don't know what I was thinking, well it was a good thought but not realistic for me! I will try another month, perhaps in the winter. I am waiting for a sale on Wednesday already and today headed out to one of my favorite stores....so much for my no spending!
