Today was a long, long day. I had a couple of scheduled phone calls where I was talking to some ladies about blogging and my other businesses. Then I got dressed and went to Walmart to get some supplies but I forgot to get my printer cartridge so I’ll need to go back again tomorrow. Lol! Then I was off to one bank to deposit some money and another bank to put some things in the safe deposit box. Then, I topped it off by having to stop at the Insurance agency to talk about some bills that I had gotten. How is that for an exciting day of a blogger? When I got to the house, Joe mentioned that Emersyn was sick and didn’t feel well. I called to check on her and then I saw her outside so I went over to see her and baby Beckham. She was feeling some better but she had the “look” in her eyes that said that she was sick. They took her to the doctor and she was running a fever, had a headache, and had an irritated throat. She tested negative for pneumonia, which is going around in her school, so they gave her some antibiotics and told her to rest. Here is where it got crazy. Apparently, unless I have misunderstood the new rules, we now have a very strict attendance policy at her school. If you miss more than 12 days the entire school year, they can hold you back and not let you go to the next grade. If you are tardy 3 times that equals an absence. If you leave early 3 times, that equals an absence. Today, when they called from the school to say that she was running a fever, my son and DIL had to discuss whether or not they should go and pick her up. Are you stinking kidding me? No wonder there are so many kids getting sick since the parents are being forced to send them to school even when they are sick and don’t feel good. BTW, a doctors excuse doesn’t matter, an absence is an absence. Am I the only who thinks this is crazy? The other day I went to a local boutique in town called Elaine’s Boutique. Elaine is a sweetheart with the softest voice you have ever heard. I went in to look for a formal dress to wear to the Convention, it is a masquerade gala, and I picked up several different items that were on the sales rack. I love Karen Kane but I love Karen Kane better on sale. Lol! I loved the city scene on this top and I loved the colors, but when I tried it on I wasn’t wild about the rounded hemline in the front. I would have liked it much better if it was straight across. Anyway, I decided to take my photos and see how it looked. Things look different in photos than they do when you are looking in the mirror. What do you think? Keep or send back?
I only picked a pair of filigree earrings to wear with this look and no lipstick. This is my version of being dressed down and casual. The new fall line from Plunder will be launching soon. I know the new fall kits that are available to consultants will be shipping on September 7th. I can’t wait to see the new items. Keep checking out the specials and sale items on the page. Go here to place orders and pick a party with my name in it. These Zuma ankle jeans are also from Karen Kane. I love the blue color of these jeans and even though I first thought of this color as a spring and summer color, I still can see being able to wear these in the fall. I especially like wearing brown with this color blue which would look great in the fall.
If you know me at all, you know that I have always had terribly dry skin. It got worse when my thyroid decided to quit working (with a little help from a radiation pill they gave me) and then having menopause on top of that just put my skin into, “I give up” mode! I tried everything. Lotions galore, baby oil in the shower (you can kill yourself when you step in afterward,) homemade potions from Pinterest with coconut oil and vitamin E and shea butter, to the highest dollar products that a celebrity would mention and endorse. Nothing………..still the cracked miserably dry skin. I had hoped, in fact, I was pretty excited when I heard that Rodan + Fields newest product launch was going to be a body butter type product. I order two jars the minute that it was available and slathered it on my arms and legs. They felt great and I was encouraged to keep on putting it on every day. The instructions say apply daily but I ignored that and went straight to 2x a day, morning and night. I have already gone through my first jar, and these things are huge. (No comments about how big my body is) Lol!
The results are amazing! For the first time that I can remember, my skin is starting to feel soft. For the first time, I am actually seeing my body starting to look normal, without all of the crepey individual looking scales.
Today, I just received 2 more jars in the mail. I don’t want to run out any time soon! I am placing an order for some other ladies and if you would like me to order you a jar just let me know. I am going to be offering the jar at the Preferred Customer price of 59.00 and I will pay the shipping. Orders will go out by the end of the month so let me know if you would like one or take my advice and get two. Lol!!!I hope that you are signed up for my daily email that will alert you of my post.
