Want to win a tote from Thirty-One?

Well, I finally decided to write a new blog post! I read several blogs on a regular basis, but seldom take the time to update mine. I have a special offer to tell you about today, though!

One of my friends, The Swanky Peacock, has just secured 1000 fans on her Facebook page and is hosting a giveaway from various vendors. She has been kind enough to let me donate a Thirty-One tote. I will be giving away an organizing utility tote in the winners choice of color and personalization. If you would like to have a chance to win, check out her blog for instructions on entering the drawing. She is posting pictures of all the vendor's offerings on her facebook page, The Swanky Peacock! There are some great products up for grabs! Thanks, Brittni, for hosting this event and congratulations on your 1000+ fans!

On another note, we are getting settled into yet another school year. I do not know where the summers go!!! It has been a very busy start, but one that has actually gone pretty smooth. I can't believe that I am in my 16th year at JO Kelly Middle School! Sometimes it seems like I just started yesterday. I am happy to say that if all goes as planned, I am in the home stretch and am beginning to see retirement as a reality!!!! I am very excited about the opportunity to be at home and able to devote my full attention to my Thirty-One business!

I can't let this post go without mentioning the fact that my baby boy was born on this day in 1988! Where have all those 23 years gone? Tanner has been such a blessing to my life since the day he made his arrival and I am very proud to be his mother! I have to say the God did bless us with 2 great kids! Neither of which is a kid anymore.

I'm not thinking of anything else to write about at the moment, so I guess this post is over. Hopefully it will not be so long until the next one!!

Snowy, snowy day...

Wow, it has been a long time since I have written a post for this blog! I have continued reading blogs during this whole time, but just never taken the time to update my own. Now, I sit here on this very cold and snowy day and just decided it was time for an update!

My last post was announcing that I was starting on a new adventure with Thirty-One Gifts. What a great adventure it has been so far!!!! I have accomplished way more than I ever thought I would. Most of the accomplishment has been with very little effort on my part! That makes it even better. The products are so wonderful that they basically sell themselves when people see them. I now have 5 recruits who are signed up directly under me and most of them have people under them as well. My team now consists of 18 members!! We wrote over $13,000.00 in business last month alone. Thank you girls for all your hard work!

I have managed to promote once already within the company to Senior Consultant and on March 1st I should promote to Director! One of my girls will promote with me and we will get to be recognized at our national conference in July. It has been an awesome ride and I am so glad that I decided to embark on this adventure. Besides all those benefits, I have made some extra money and have an abundant supply of bags!!! If anyone is reading this and would like to get in on some of these awesome benefits, just leave me a comment or find me on facebook and message me there! My website is available, too, for you to look around and see what you think!

Besides working my Thirty-One business, I have been spending as much time as possible with my sweet little Grace!! She is going to be 4 years old in just 20 short days. Where have the last 4 years gone? She is so much fun to have around. She is very smart and talks like an adult most of the time. She is really into making up stories right now and I love to hear her tell them. I am so thankful that they live as close to us as they do so we can see her often!

We have also found a new home church that we really are enjoying. We are now attending Grace Church located on hwy. 265 next door to Williams Gymnastics Center. It is unlike any church I have ever been a part of and I love it! Taylor and her family are going there, too. Grace loves being with the kids in her class and is now quoting Bible verses! It makes me very happy to know that she is being raised in the church.

Can't think of much else to write about for now. Maybe I can be a little better about posting, not that anyone reads this but me!!
