I had the absolute best week with all of the grandbabies. We didn’t go a lot and instead just stayed at the house for the most part but it was so much fun. They swam, they painted, they had their pictures taken, they watched fireworks a couple of times, and they made smores. They also thought the outdoor shower was a cool treat so we didn’t have any trouble getting them to get cleaned up at night. Lol! However, with all that swimming daily and all of those baths we had a mountain of towels piled up. We did a couple of loads of towels while they were here but yesterday I did 4 loads of nothing but towels. Lol! How can such little people go through so many towels? Hahaha! Emersyn sure hated to see them leave and poor little Matti always cries when it comes time to leave. She is such a sweet and sensitive little girl. Matthan promised them that he would take them to the pet store on the way home and they loved that idea. They weren’t getting anything but they just wanted to see everything and to get to pet the animals and that made them happy. Today’s shift dress reminds me of a mermaid. I see tee-shirts that say, “I’d rather be a mermaid” in the stores but I think that I would rather wear this dress than a tee-shirt. Lol! The variations of white, teal, aqua, and royal blue all combine to look like fish scales. Maybe you would rather think that they look like polka dots if you are not into mermaids. Lol! The dress is fully lined and is 100% polyester but it is still dry clean only. I am wearing a size 12 which is what I wear in most dresses and it fits me fine but I noticed that the website said if you were between sizes that you would want to size down. This was in my Trunk Club shipment, yes I think my stylist loves me, and it is by Elie Tahari. I chose turquoise and gold for my jewelry. I wanted to stay in the monochromatic tone with all of the blues that were in the dress. I think this is the first time that I have worn my Venus earrings. They are super cute with marbled turquoise and crystals that look like topaz. They are a 2″ drop which is a good length. The turquoise necklace is the Deidre and it is three strands with gold at each end. The gold Mary Ellen bracelet is the one with the tassel and the Morgan bracelet is the one that looks like links. If you are interested in ordering any of the Plunder jewelry then you can go to plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and when you click the shop button just pick a party with my name in it. I almost added white pumps but I wanted to stay with the blue so I added these royal blue pumps that I bought from Old Navy years ago. These are probably at least 4 or 5 years old but they still look brand new because I don’t wear them often. I do like having some colorful shoes that aren’t so expensive for a pop of color.
Ladies, Joe has said that this is going to be my last full week at work. 😱 I am petrified now that it is actually happening, you girls might have to talk me off of a ledge. I will be worrying about everything working out at the lumber company and then I will be worrying about my income. I am just guessing, but I bet that I will not buy anything for a month or two because I will be so worried. Did you notice a pattern? Worry, worried, scared, frightened, and petrified do not sound like the person that I have become. I am going to work this week on changing my mindset and my words. Your words become your actions and your actions become your reality. I realize that doors have been opened for me that I would never have opened myself. If you saw my post yesterday then you now that I am afraid of rejection. There would have been no way that I would have ever said “yes” to the business opportunity of Rodan + Fields. I would have said the very same thing that I bet a lot of you are saying right now. “I don’t know a lot of people,” “everyone will think that it is too expensive,” “I am way too busy,” “I don’t know anything about skincare,” “I am afraid that no one will buy anything,” and maybe even one more that you aren’t saying, “I don’t even wash my face at night.” In spite of all that I became a consultant and now I am retiring from work after 2 years in the business. I was actually very slow in moving up in this organization, there are LOTS of people who have done this way faster and way better than me. I still have a looooong way to go and a lot of women to help before I am finished. I am not saying that you will be able to retire in two years if you join me in the business but I am saying that you will never know what you are capable of doing until you try. EMAIL ME at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a time to talk. You have nothing to lose, talking is free, and you have EVERYTHING to gain.
