Facebook Parties. The what? The why? The how?

I like many of you have had a direct sales consultant ask me if I would like to do a home party? My quick response is; "NO! My house is a mess, I don't even have a big enough house, and who would I invite, and if you only knew how bad I am at parties you might never ask me again!" We've all said it or at least thought it. Well there is a new game in town and I'm going to give you my experience with a Facebook Party (that I ran) for Thrity-One. I became a Consultant...

There is a new community online!

Do you blog? Do you Scope? Are you an entrepreneur? Do you homeschool? If you answered yes to any one of those questions then this new community is just for you. It's appropriately called "Social Homeschool Mamas" because we homeschool and use social media. We are not afraid of the internet or sharing our lives (respectively) online. We have discovered that the online community has allowed us friendships we might never have had otherwise, and engage in discussions that stretch us as mothers, wives, business owners and Christians. You, fellow homeschooler, are my people and I've cast my net wide...

It has been awhile.

I am still here! Still homeschooling my two kids with Classical Conversations, Fireman and I celebrated 12 years of marriage back in August, continuing my pursuit of health and fitness, directing my amazing CC community, and most recently I have become a Thrity-One Consultant. But that is not why I decided to come back to my blog. I definitely do not want to sell you anything, I just want to restart this page and get back to writing. The kids and I have been having a great homeschool year. I moved the school room into the main area of our...

Top 10 Reasons Why I love Wildtree.

Wildtree is the number one keyword that people find my site so I thought I would share with you why I choose Wildtree. 1. I no longer have to mix my own blends from 5 different jars of spices. 2. The spice blends are all organic. 3. My dear friend Erin Girard sells Wildtree because her daughter has a nut allergy and she can rest easy knowing that Wildtree products will not send them to the ER. 4. There is a blend for everything. Oatmeal mix-ins, meat rubs, Alfredo sauce blend, spaghetti blend, and many more. 5. They have butter infused...

Confessions of this blogger.

I am not a writer! I am sure those of you new and old to this blog are nodding their heads because you know I am not. The posts I write can have many grammar errors, lacking style, which persuades no one. I can get so self conscience about this truth that writing any post is equivalent to the dentist chair. As a homeschooling mom I am relearning a lot about the English language and writing structure, but instead of that making me a better writer I am more aware of my inability to write well. I now know what...

Monday Musings and More!

It's Monday again.... I am thankful that we are one week into the new time change and getting up this morning was not as hard. I am thankful for my dog that keeps me company when Fireman is away. I am thankful for my kids. It is almost time for the house to wake up. I am so glad to have had one cup of coffee already but I am sure to have at least one more. One of my favorite parts of spring is that the birds come back. I guess some of you may not realize that up...

What’s new?

Its Wednesday. Normally today is our CC campus day but to make sure the tutors all stay on the same page I led a 3+ hour training. I love spending time with my tutors who also happen to be dear friends. The kids run around outside/inside and make all the neighbors wonder, "why they aren't in school!" Today is my Fireman's birthday! He really hates celebrating birthday's so I'm sure he is glad he is working today. Which means little to me, because we can celebrate when he comes home. My littlest is at Dance class right now. She absolutely...
