Tupperware Lunch Bunch Specials

I wanted to make sure you saw these great options (on sale) for Lunch - because we all know it will soon be either back to work or back to school or both

I have all of these items too - can you say Tupperholic?? But I have to say some of these are tried and true pieces (I have the Hamburger Press and Keeper forever) and the Summer Stuffables Set is great (I have them in red and white from Christmas) that with that "pop up" lid saves me from either throwing out stuff or having to wash another container when its too small.

I need to place the order for these for you - so if you want something from here, email me or message me and I will call you for your order, shipping data and payment info.

Check out my Tupperware Site to see if there are other things that you might be interested in as well.

AND if you order $50 or more, email me with the details and I will send you a free gift!
Isn't that SSWWEETT?

Breakfast anyone?

I'm sharing one of the "pages" in our Mid July brochure that you just don't want to miss if you have problems with breakfast - especially on work days or school days.

I really love all the pieces in this set - I even used one of the microwave bowls this morning for oatmeal (yes its "warm" here but I was craving oatmeal)

You can visit my Tupperware Site and pick up this whole set or individual pieces (or anything else for that matter) or you can email me and I will call you to place the order.

This set is available for a limited time so if you are interested don't be "a stallin'"

Oh and to make it a little more interesting ... If you spend $50 or more and email me the details I will send you a free gift!  SWWWWEEETTT!

You are loved

I think this says it all

I'm going to print this out and put it on my desk (under the desk pad) so I can see it all the time ... ok when I move stuff off my desk - so that when I am feeling really overwhelmed this will bring a smile to my face.

Amazon Prime

Are you a Prime member?

I have been an Amazon Prime member for a few months now and have found that it is well worth the cost. 

What?  You don't exactly know what Amazon Prime is?  Well let me tell you -

Amazon Prime is the membership program that offers special benefits for just $79 per year.

Members can:
 * Instantly watch over 40,000 movies and TV episodes with titles for everyone
* Borrow books from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library
* Get unlimited FREE two-day shipping with no minimum order size (this has saved us many times with school books for my daughter!)

I hope you will check it out and try it out for 30 days free!  Yes I said FREE.  You can check it out with the above link to try for 30 days - then you too will be singing the praises of Amazon Prime!

We have "rented" Kindle books for free, gotten discounts on purchases, and received the great 2 day shipping FREE (Christmas is coming again) . 

I'm now looking into the movies and TV shows that are available for those days when there is absolutely NOTHING on TV - even the on demand  options from my cable company.

Don't know the answers?

Sometimes I think I am suppose to have all the answers.  SURPRISE I don't.  I know that comes as a complete shock to you - it does to me too.  I thought when I became a mom (I know many years ago) that part of what you got when you got pregnant was the kicking in of the "I know everything" gene so that you would have all the answers when asked anything.......

I think I have finally accepted that I don't have all the answers, but that's OK because I now know they will come.

How about you?  Have you come to this realization or do you still believe you know it all?

Time to go Home

I really  am going to miss seeing these every day/night right off the lanai or walking through/on the deck area (I love seeing the boats docked here) even though I don't have a boat.

or this

or this

or even the beach

and of course we have the sweet shops with their "unique" version of chocolate

Yes those are alligators and dolphins and turtles, just to name a few.

I know I was working quite a bit this past week (as well as enjoying the sun) but it was really nice to be able to see things like this at the end of the day or the beginning.  I will be looking forward to being able to actually spend some relaxing time here .... soon.  But Marco I will miss you while I am gone

Shabby Apple Giveaway!

I'm sure you have seen Shabby Apple before, I know I have been looking at things on their site for quite a while now, and may have narrowed it down to 1 or 2 (or 3).  They have some really unique dresses and skirts that I think would work for any body style/size as well as any age.

I was recently contacted by Geetha from Shabby Apple about doing a giveaway for their wonderful vintage clothing which of course I LOVE because I know wherever I wore them I would be a standout!  I don't think I would be "running into" myself every time I turned the corner, you know what I mean right?

There are quite a few dressing in this collection that I really love, like Boogie Woogie, that I think would be great for a "dress up" event

And then there is At Last, that I thought would be nice for both a dress up event or a less dressy but still want to be dressed up kind of an event.

As you can see there are all kinds of things that you can pick at Shabby Apple and not break the bank as you try to look wonderful for that special someone ....... even if that special someone is YOU.

Now for the great part, that I know you have been waiting for ........ One of my readers will be able to pick out their very own Shabby Apple Dress from their Vintage Clothing Collection.  There is a list of dresses and skirts to select from, that I will share with the winner and Geetha and the winner can select their winning prize!

If you want to purchase your own dress now, you can "click" on over to Shabby Apple and look at all the wonderful options you have and make your selection to purchase

Tupperware Mid July Specials!

I just had to post these to show you what awesome specials we have going on in our Mid July brochure.  You can see these and so much more on my Tupperware Site where you can order online or you can browse and then message me and I will call you for your order information - your choice!

The Ice Prisms set is FABULOUS!  And the lunch kits are great to get for the upcoming school year or even for work ... you will be the envy of the lunchroom.  And then the Modular Mates ... we won't even go into how much I love mine ... I redid my entire pantry area with Modular Mates back in January and had a few left over to use at the condo in Florida.  I just heard recently that the rectangular 1 would make a great bacon keeper ... I will definitely be trying that one out when I get home --- I'm always looking for something to keep our bacon fresh in the fridge

If you want to hold your own party - book parties are great and will work - those Eco Water Bottles are PERFECT for every day.  I use mine each and every day and the brush is great to keep it super clean if you decide to add something other than water to the bottle.  Just note that the items in the second picture above are ONLY available at this price from July 13th through July 26th.... after that they go back up to their regular price and the Eco Water Bottle and Brush Set is "gone", you could however get the water bottles in a set of 2 for $26 (and still worth every penny)

Let me know if I can help with anything.

Oh oh and the banana keeper is PERFECT for sending a banana to work or school - no more mushy bananas with this baby!  I know I want one, how about you?

The First Step!

This one is pretty much to the point

We can continue to exist where we are, 
complaining about what we don't have, where we can't go


We can take the First Step

I know I have a good life,
I know that I have many things that others don't
And don't get me wrong, I am thankful for that.

But, there are still things I wish I had, 
things I wish I could do or give to my kids


I'm taking that first step towards and even better tomorrow.

How about you - are you ready?

A work in Progress

I love this - I think it is perfect for all of us to remember.

Let's remember this

I AM who I CHOOSE to be

Life is an Echo

How does this sound to you?

What are you sending out today?
What are you going to be sending out tomorrow?

Shall we Radiate Love so that we will know it is coming back to us?

Never with Regrets

does this say anything to you other than .... it pretty?

Never any Regrets ........ pretty powerful right?

Do you agree, disagree, have no idea what this is suppose to mean?

Make sure YOU matter

Sometimes I think kids (and adults) learn by words and other times its by actions/example.

Sometimes you just have to have something that visually "tempts" them to contemplate what you are trying to say.

Something like this one.

Have you done something today to make sure that you matter?

Today's Peace

I don't know if you remember the old "Don't worry, Be Happy" catchy tune ....

But I think this one says it just as well - if not better

Let's not take away today's Peace within our minds/body/spirit.

Let's work towards correcting/fixing that desire within us all - yes we need to work on tomorrow's troubles but it doesn't need to overtake our today!

Shall we make a this our mantra for today (and everyday)?

Here is something else I found to help us "stop over-thinking" that will rob us of today's Peace

Christmas In July!!!

I just had to share this with you - some FABULOUS deals on my site

Check out the great deals on my Tupperware Site  under the tab Christmas in July.

The Stuffable sets are fantastic - I think I use mine at least 3 or 4 times a month because I don't have "leftovers" I have "plan-overs" and these babies make just a little "extra" room with the pop up lid.

The Snack Canisters make great cookie container ... I think I have 4 that I use all the time (sometime I put store bought cookies in them like I had made them :) but well you know sometimes you just don't have time to bake)

While you are on my site, check out some of the other wonderful things that are available -- including the Uncle Si Tumblers and the Pitcher Set!  Yes they are available online too! 

Dr Seuss and some Life Lessons

I have to say I loved this one when I saw it and just knew I had to share.

Although I really do like all 5 of Dr Seuss's lessons, I have to say that #2 and #5 are things that should be going hand in hand and, in my opinion, belong up top - front and center!

YOU were born to stand out
So behave like this is YOUR day to be remembered

I think we need to keep teaching our children these very "facts".  I think if more kids were taught this and not just by words but by example, we would have less "blind followers" and less "evil" events in our lives.

Lets vow to help our kids (and us) stand out for the GOOD things that we can be remembered for and not trying to be something we are not "just" to fit in!

As we start the second half of this year (can you believe half of 2013 as gone by already) lets take this to heart and make this OUR year to shine!

What do you think?
Are these great lessons from Dr Seuss?
Are these things we should be teaching our kids by example every day?
