I had the best lunch yesterday. The food was fine, but nothing great. I ordered a grilled chicken salad because I am still looking at low carb, and it was filling and tasty, but that is not why I had a great lunch. My lunch was great because of the company that I was with. A friend of mine that I hadn’t seen in probably a year came over to Grundy, and we went out for a lunch date. I had expected it to last at least an hour, but two hours later we were still talking away. I have no idea how long we would have stayed there and talked if her babysitter hadn’t texted wanting to know how much longer she was going to be out. Isn’t that the way it is sometimes? There are some people that you don’t have to see every day, or even talk to every day to be terrific friends. Whenever you find the time to sit and talk, the words flow, and it is so much fun to get to catch up with what is going on in each other’s lives. There were moments when we snorted because we were laughing so hard and there were a few times when tears welled up in our eyes. After you have so much fun, you will think to yourself that you are not going to let that much time pass before you get together again. But, we all know what happens next. It is called “life” and before we even blink an eye, another year will have passed by. I am grateful for the time we spent together yesterday, and I truly look forward to the next time we get together, no matter how long it might be. Until I see snow flurries flying about, I am sticking with my theory that Spring is coming soon! And, as long as the weather is cooperating, I am going to take the opportunity to wear clothing that is lighter in weight and brighter in color. Hopefully, both of those things will combine to brighten my spirit as well. You can see the look on my face that says it all; colors make the difference. This light pink tunic has a leopard print but with a twist. The leopard print is not in the normal browns and black, but instead, with light turquoise and a faded black to soften the look. I have had this top for a while, and I have worn this top on multiple occasions. But, for some reason, I haven’t taken pictures with this top on and put it on the blog. I bought the top back in late summer from a local boutique, and I must not have liked the tag that was in it because I can see where I cut it out. Don’t you hate those tags that scratch and make your neck irritated? I sure wish they would all go to the printed on the material labeling, that would be so much nicer.
I am sorry that I didn’t get a good picture of my earrings. They were a present from my Energizer Bunny Friend, and they are bright pink lips. Lol! They are not something that I would have ever bought for myself, but they are too cute and fun. Everyone needs a little fun in their life. I need to go through my jewelry when I get finished with all of the other organizing projects that I have going because my shorter necklaces tend to get lost in a mess. I had forgotten about this cute short Challis necklace. It features a marbled turquoise rectangle on a 22″ gold chain. The Serena necklace is another one that I had forgotten about. It has lots of tiny turquoise beads on a brown cord with a cream stone pendant and a bright fuschia bead. To purchase Plunder Design, go here. The bright turquoise waterfall cardigan that I have on is one from Cato Fashions that I bought last year. I love bright colors so even though I didn’t have anything specific that I was buying this to wear with, I knew that I would be able to find plenty of things in my wardrobe that it would match. I went with dark jeans since I was wearing a brighter color cardigan. My jeans today are by NYDJ, and I have a couple of jeans by this brand that I absolutely love. They are soft, and I love the way that they give but don’t stretch out and sag. I have visions of the day when we used to wear stirrup pants and had baggy knees when we would stand up. Lol! Anyone else remember those days. Lol!!!
I am not sure what type people you think join Rodan + Fields, but I bet the answer would shock you. Yes, there are a lot of stay-at-home moms in R+F, but there are a ton of professional people involved also. These are the type of person that you would never think would join a direct sales company, but R+F is different. It has the credibility that no other direct sales company can match, at least IMHO. I am looking at just one professional segment today…nurses. Nurses love helping others; it is in their blood. I am going to link to several stories from nurses about why they joined Rodan + Fields. If any of these stories spark an interest in you, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will hop on the phone with EBF today!
