Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!

I sure hope yours has started off better than mine. I caught something or another the weekend of Christmas and by New Years Eve I was running a fever and feeling like dirt. Turns out I had a sinus infection and double ear infection along with some yucky head congestion. NOW...finally....a few days into the New Year...I'm feeling kinda human again.

So with that said....I laid around the house most of the holiday. No celebrating. Just sleeping.

I have managed to squeak out 4 paintings and some crochet projects. And several orders placed which is fantastic.

A few 2015 highlights -
we traveled to Ohio for the Thirty One Conference - Townsend Tennessee - Cancun Mexico - Disney World Florida - Charleston South Carolina - and several camping trips in between. It was a busy traveling year for sure. My son Shawn and his girlfriend Anna got engaged. Smiles for Care Bags donated 500 bags to Chemo Centers, Relay for Life and the Paulding Foster Program. I hit my highest sales ever with Thirty One (over $30K). It was a great year! I can't wait to see what 2016 brings. I don't have any goals in New Years Resolutions...nothing on the books. This year I have a feeling is going to be a "fly by the seat of my pants" kinda year. I am open for anything. The only thing set in stone so far is Shawn's wedding in September. The rest of the year is an open book and ready for me to TAKE IT ON!!!!

Smiley 360

so I found this cool page where you can take surveys and hopefully qualify for a mission. If you will get some free goodies in the mail and then just write a review.
Here is the link if you want to check it out.

On the home front...we made it through Disney. That was amazing and I can't wait to go back and maybe spend some extra days there. Danie really did have a great time. I loved the campground as well. Now, in just 6 days, I will be embarking on another trip with my sister to celebrate her 40th birthday. We are heading to CANCUN! woooooooo. I am really excited since I have never been. A though nervous as well.

Billy had his MRI a few weeks back. The neurosurgeon has since left the practice but his ENT called and said everything was stable but she does want to chat with me. I hated I missed her call so I will be anxiously awaiting to hear from her.

We have had 8 more Chemo Care Bags sponsored which is exciting. I would love to hit 600 before the end of the year. If you are interested in sponsoring a bag please let me know. We have options for $15 and for $20 :)

It's hard to believe that we are about to hit November and just a few months left in this year. It has really flown by and we still have a lot to do. A trip to Murphy and a trip to Charleston! Oh and before I forget....a serious dream come true is happening this Sunday. I will be dragging my hubby to WalkerStalkerCon and getting my picture made with Norman Reedus (daryl)!!!!!!!!!! OMG! I am beyond excited and I have NEVER had my picture made or been that close to someone famous from a show/movie. Let's hope I don't get all nervous and stuff and make a blubbering idiot of myself!

I'm BACK......

Man it has been awhile.....I am so sorry about that. Life gets in the way sometimes and it takes a little bit of an awakening to get you back on track.

So just a quick update...

  • Billy is doing great. He still has his paralysis on the left side of his face but he is trucking along! We have a routine MRI in October but I'm confident everything will be okay. 
  • Butterbean is growing like crazy. Can you believe she started Pre-K! (gasp)
  • Shawn is ENGAGED! Yep you heard that right. Looks like they are planning a September 2016 wedding. Stay tuned! 
  • I'm doing great. I have really put all my energy into our newest project - Smiles with Chemo Care Bags! Last year we donated roughly 150 bags to the local cancer centers. My goal for 2015 was to donate 300! far as of today - August 2015 - we have donated 329! Our current project is finding enough sponsors for 150 bags to donated to the survivors at the upcoming Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk. We are currently about 100 bags shy of our walk goal. I am so blessed and excited to see how this journey has grown. And I can't wait to get it even bigger and better over the years. Just touching so many lives with a smile makes my world wonderful!! 
  • I just got back from our Thirty-One Conference. It was AM-A-ZING! Billy went with me and it was so nice to see him get involved and enjoy being with our team...learning about Thirty One - and meeting Scott Monroe. I am so excited to grow my team in 2015...become a better leader...and inspire other woman to step out and do things they may not have ever thought about doing. To achieve their "why"! Big Goals for 2015!

I can't wait to get back to sharing our family....sharing my Thirty One journey....and just being ME again. 

Upcoming fun....I will be attending my first vendor event next weekend! I am a little nervous but so excited! Paulding Meadows will be here in September (our 5th year!) And in less than 5 weeks we will be taking Danie to DISNEY! And in just a few more months my sister and I will be embarking on a journey to Cancun to celebrate her 40th Birthday! 
So much to look forward to!!!
