The ZOO!!

The Zoo

At the zoo we saw a bear
He had long, dark fuzzy hair

We saw a lion in a cage.
He was in an awful rage.

We saw the big, long-trunked elephant,
And the silly monkeys made us laugh!

But my favorite animal at the zoo
Is the giraffe--how about you?

ROUTE 66!!!!!

I was very blessed recently in my Arbonne business with 3 awesome new District Managers! As a result of their hard work (and mine!) I was able to attend a weekend getaway at Cecilia Stoll's house in Edmond, Okalahoma! If you don't know who Cecilia is she is my Arbonne HERO!!! I want to be like her when I grow up! This weekend was just what I needed to refocus myself to my business and get ready to GO TO THE TOP!!!

Dwayna and I on the way to Cecilia's House for the Mexican Fiesta!

Here is a picture with our NVP Kay Draelos! She is so beautiful and so wonderful! I would not have made it to Oklahoma without her support! She is the pretty blonde on the end! The others are the CRAZY Canadians on our team! They are tons of FUN!

Arbonne is known for giving away Tiffany's merchandise! Here is my FIRST of many Tiffany boxes to come!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This is my first "Not Me" Monday so here it goes!!

Last Monday I most certainly DID NOT show up to the airport ready to go to Cancun with the WRONG type of passport! I also DID NOT work a FULL YEAR for the trip for it to all go to waste:( I am way too intelligent for that!

Eric and I certainly DID NOT spend the ENTIRE week moping around the house in our pj's feeling sorry for ourselves! We would NEVER do that!

I DID NOT plan a day trip to the ZOO with my husband and child and pack a full picnic only to end up eating at Chili's instead. I would never go through the trouble of making turkey sandwiches to just leave them to spoil in the truck while I devoured nachos at Chili's!! NOT ME!!

I also DID NOT allow my 19 month old son to eat fast food for all 3 meals on Sunday. NOT ME!! I always enjoy cooking nutrious meals for MY family!

I also WOULD NEVER allow my son to take a 4 hour nap on Sunday just because I wanted to also take a 4 hour nap! NEVER!!

AAHHH! I feel so much better getting that off my chest!!

New Friends!!

Eric and I have been so blessed with all the many friends that we have made here in Snyder! God knows that Eric and I are social people and he has sent wonderful couples into our lives to fill the void of our friends back in Lubbock! Some of our new friends are Glen and Megan Lewis. They are a really sweet couple and had us over to dinner not too long ago. They live out in the country and have lots of land to ride 4-wheelers. Eric took Gunner for his first ride on a 4-wheeler! Who do you think looks more afraid, Eric or Gunner?!?!!

Last weekend I was invited to Women of Faith Conference in Dallas with my new friend and District Manager in Arbonne, Julie Bynum. It was an awesome weekend with some great women and of course my mom! We had a great time of shopping and getting lifted up by some awesome women of God! I came back feeling renewed! Julie is such an wonderful person and I am so blessed to have her in my life and business! She is one of those women that everyone looks up to and I have already learned so much from her on how to be a better wife and mommy!

Test Drive a Mercedes Day!!

My Arbonne business is through the the roof in Snyder and I have been so blessed with the amazing women that God has brought into my life and business! We went to Arbonne's Annual Test Drive a Mercedes Day and picked out the Mercedes that we want! I want the new E-class series! It is beautiful! Two of my new team members, who I may add are in qualification for their first promotion, Julie Bynum and Sarah Erwin went with me and we had a BLAST!! Here are the "Beach Bound Babes" from Snyder.

I want to be like HIM when I grow up!!!

Gunner is turning into a HUGE daddy's boy! He wants to be with Eric all the time and follows him around everywhere! It's great for me too because it gives me a break! Here are some pictures of the two stooges!!

Here is a video too of Gunner playing t-ball! I think he is a natural at it already!!

1st lake trip in our new boat!!

Well I finally whined long enough that Eric broke down and bought a boat! It's not a new one of course (Dave Ramsey wouldn't approve if it was!) but it is as good as new! We bought it from my Uncle Randy and Aunt Shellie and they took excellent care of it!

We went to Lake Alan Henry on the 4th to test the waters and had a blast! My parents and Aunt Nat went with us! It was HOT but lots of fun! Looking forward to many more days on the lake!

Lake Trip to Granbury!!

The lake trip was a lot of fun but VERY HOTTTT!!!! We all came back with a little sun make that ALOT of sun! Gunner enjoyed the lake this time much better than Memorial Day! He actually got in the water at Sandy Beach and was loving it! He would try to put his face under water and was not scared at all! Can't say the same for his daddy and I! He loved to "drive" the boat and honk the horn! We kept a rope tied on his lifejacket so he wouldn't walk off the dock!

We got to see some of our good friends Chris and Lauren Scott from Arlington on Friday before they were off to Cabo for the week! Lauren is as beautiful as ever and Chris is as sarcastic as ever! Eric loves to hang out with Chris and they act like college kids again everytime they see each other! On Saturday, Uncle Randy and Aunt Shellie came down for the day! It was fun to see everyone! We love the lake and wish that we could go more often!
