On the Road Again!!

Well, I'm not on the road yet, but I'm heading back to Missouri on August 1st. I hadn't planned on going back so soon, but my fave uncle and aunt are going to be in town from chicago. Since I only see them about once a year, I didn't want to miss out. I'm going home a few days early to also throw some Arbonne parties. I'm trying to reach the next level in my business, which is District Manager. So I would love to throw an Arbonne party for you and your friends! The party is a fun way to learn more about Arbonne, and a chance to earn tons of free products!! When you schedule a party for the week I'm home I'll give you a FREE gift! Let me know if you're interested!!

Memory Lane

My grandparents have 9 boxes of pictures on slides, and each box has 100 pictures....yep 900 slides. Chris and I started the process of scanning all the slides into the computer so we can put them all onto a dvd to watch. Chris has spent about 5 hours on it today and only has 35 slides so far....it's a slow process. But these are all pictures we've never seen, so I've really enjoyed seeing them as we go. Here's a few from today:

Meanest Dog??

I was listening to the radio the other day and there was a recent poll that rated the meanest dogs. To my surprise Dachshunds were their #1 meanest dog....Really?? Does she look fierce to you??

Catching Up With Technology....

Chris, Nicole, and Dalton have been giving me a hard time that I still have a razor phone. One of my friends also informed me that I've had the same phone for 2 years!! (apparently that's too long). If you know me, you know that I don't love change. So I love that I can do just about anything on my phone with my eyes closed. But my beloved razor is slowly dying so yesterday I ordered a new phone....and no, Nicole I didn't get another razor like I wanted. Instead I got a new pink Chocolate phone. (yes, Erin, it's pink--I can't help myself). So now I get to learn a new phone. But at least I can now get picture messages and put music on my phone!

Gainful Employment

I am officially the newest employee of Powerhouse Gym. This is the gym I've been working out at since we moved here. I decided to apply so I can meet new people. It'll be nice to get to know some more people here and it will also help with my Arbonne business!!

4th of July

Here's some pics from all our fun on the 4th!

Elijah and Alli enjoying some smoke bombs at Grandma's
Elijah and me...he had just woken up!

This one cracks me up! Dalton and Alex were setting off bottle rockets, but one was louder than he expect it to be!

He really started loving the bottle rockets and begged for Dalt and Alex to set off more!

Alex doing some mega fire works!!

Nicole and I, and no we didn't plan to match. I guess we both just have a great sense of fashion!

Elijah loves Dalton!

Swim Team

Lexi is on swim team this summer, and she is doing so great!! I was lucky enough to be at her first swim meet when I was in St. Joe. Erin told me I had to post some pics....These are a little delayed, but here they are!
