Thirty One Spring Product Premiere!

DSC_5580Last Sunday I went to the Thirty One Spring Product Premiere at Concord Mills AMC movie theatre.  A few members of my team met up early to have lunch and catch up at Macado’s.  Then it was time for the show.  There were over 800 consultants there!   It was really fun to see sneak peeks of all the new products and prints.  SO cute!  And I left with freebies: 25 catalogs, a pack of mini catalogs, and a Your Way Rectangle (with a clear pvc window) from the new Your Way home organization collection!


December Birchbox

December Birchbox

My December birchbox came! This month I received under eye gel packs to get rid of puffy eyes, men’s cologne, mascara, face cream, and shampoo. Now that I’m approaching 40 I have puffy eyes if I don’t get enough sleep so those gel packs will come in handy! The shampoo and face cream are perfect travel size. And I can always use mascara!


Ahoy, indeed!

I was checking my Facebook messages when I noticed something in my inbox.  Up in the left hand corner it said Inbox 82  then next to it Other 99+.  I had never paid attention to the Other so I clicked on it.  Mainly it was filled with messages from people who I wasn’t Facebook friends with when they wrote me.  I felt badly because there were notes there from some people I should have replied to ages ago, but I never knew the note was there.

Then there were the come ons.  I have uncovered 3 come on messages so far.  Who knew my profile pic was so appealing to middle aged men??  One guy from Miami, one from the UK.  But  my favorite message is from an Army Captain:

Hi you are looking sweet and love the way you smile baby, i will like to know you more and better… sorry are you single?.. Am a single dad of two kids need s good woman to spend the rest of my life with… hope to read from you soon…
Thanks Captain Scott….

I told CSP about the messages and especially Captain Scott’s.  (I wonder if he’d make me call him Cap’n all the time??  Dinner’s ready Cap’n!)  Anyway, CSP said “See, if I kick off early you’ll be just fine.  Just go hook up with Captain Scott!”   I gotta keep my CSP healthy so I don’t end up some Facebook mail order bride!



I hadn’t updated my 100+ Things page in a while so I sat down to do that and realized that a few things have changed over the past 3 or so years since I’d updated.

#26- I used to only have 2 tattoos.  Now I have 5:  a sun/moon on my lower back, 3 ladybugs & a dragonfly on my right foot, the Hebrew word for three on my right foot, the initials of my sisters, my mom, and my initial on the inside of my left wrist, and 3 stars behind my left ear.

#29- I’d always wanted a nose ring.  Now I have one.

#43- I’m up to 10 cruises now.  11 come February.

#50- I’d wanted to go back to Las Vegas where we honeymooned.  We took a trip back there for my birthday in 2009.

Also we’ve moved to be closer to CSP’s work, we finished our adoption work, and I’m less than 8 months away from turning 40!



The End of an Era

We are all finished with our adoption work!  No more paperwork.  No more deadlines.  No more inspections and scrutiny.  No more digging for records.  WHEW.  We’ve been working on this for so long I almost don’t know what to do with myself now!   Well, yes I do.  That would be prepare for the arrival of the kidlets!!!  We’re asking for 2 girls ages 0-8.  We are so excited!  We’re hoping to have them home by summer.  All depends on how many children are available.  We could be parents in a month or a year.   It’s finally feeling so real!  We’ve been “that couple who’s adopting” for SO long, and soon we’ll be “that couple who adopted those beautiful children”.  Squeeee!!!
