Your Journey

This is another on the theme of walking a mile in my shoes before you judge me.

I would love to put this in the face of some who I have met over the years.
I know you know what I am talking about.
They think that you are "whining" about things that you should just power over.
You should just "ignore" this problem or that without knowing what is going on in your life.

I know I have caught myself sometimes thinking that someone should stop whining or crying or doing the poor me thing, and then I think about their situation and think ... but for the Grace of God go I.
And then hopefully I go and try to help them out ... even if its just with a hug or an ear to listen that makes them feel better, that makes them feel like someone cares, even if its just for a few minutes.

Life Serious vs Funny

So what do you think ????

Shall we make a pact?

If you can't laugh at yourself every now and again, I'll do it for you (you know you already give me enough reasons to laugh, even when you are not trying to) and you will do the same for me (I will try to give you LOTS of reasons ... I know, I know, it will be difficult because I am such a serious person).

Oh look I just did it again :)

I hope by now you have seen that there is a NEW Summer Catalog available from Tupperware.
If you haven't seen it yet, you can check it out on my Tupperware Site as well as pick up anything that you are needing at the moment (and trust me there are lots of things that you need :) just saying).

You can also order from the Mid April brochure, here's a great one page showing all those great deals too.

Not only is it a new Catalog, its also BIRTHDAY month!  Yes can you believe that Tupperware is celebrating their 66th birthday?  I love some of the new colors that they have as well as the awesome items that are part of the Birthday Celebration - like these "surprise" boxes.

I am going to do "mega parties" for anyone that wants to be part of these great deals, but you need to hurry or you could miss out on these deals.  You can message me with you info and I will call you to get this set up and entered ... and of course let you choose you box.  Now remember it is first come first serve so I will go based on email date/time received.

Now is the PERFECT time for this party - you can order from the Mid April brochure, the Birthday Month brochure AND the new SUMMER catalog!

Check it out on my Tupperware Site where you can see all the current brochures/catalogs (link in upper right sidebar) as well as the individual items in the "shop now" tab.

Hope to see you there ... I know I will be getting some of these items for me.

If you don't want to be part of any of these "party options" you can always order on my current party (link in the top sidebar of this blog) and be able to be party of my mystery hostess for the month.  Let me know if I can help you in any way ... including joining us as a consultant - think about it, its a great "job".

Just One Positive Thought

I knew this was something that EVERYONE needed to see.
Like everyone, there are some days that are just total downers.
You just want to get back into bed and pull the covers over your head.

DON'T ..... because

So here is to 1 positive thought to start the day ....... and then you know that more will follow.

Confidence is not always about being right or knowing that you are right, its about knowing that even if you fail, you learned something.

I hope we can instill this in our children -
lets not just "follow like sheep" but instill confidence so they can stretch their wings and learn to fly!

My Prayer for You

I saw this on GodVine and ... well it spoke to me so I had to share.

I hope this will speak to you as well and you will take it in the spirit it is offered....
Pass this on to all your friends and loved ones - it will make their day too.

Strawberry Salsa

Have you been looking for something "different" for your table?  Something to add to your dishes that would just make them POP??  How about some Strawberry Salsa??  Sounds pretty interesting right?

I really think this sounds interesting, and will be especially interesting over a grilled Chicken breast or even a Pork Chop or Tenderloin.  I will be trying this one very soon (like right after tax season ends and I can start cooking again).  Of course I have the Tupperware pieces that they used here to make the Strawberry Salsa.  You know that you could have them in your kitchen too if you picked them up (or so much more) on my Tupperware Site

Happy Birthday Jenn

Oh look at the time.  I know EXACTLY where I was 24 years ago at EXACTLY this time ...
That's right.  She always did keep me up late at night and got me up early in the mornings ...
BUT we need to wishing someone very special to me a very

And I know you have seen this person before on these pages.
Just LOOK who is having a BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!

I just love the way your look has "changed" over years, 
all 24 of them!  You use to be such a camera hog.  

Then you discovered that you were pretty good on the "other side" of the camera ....

But every now and again I get to snap a few pictures (or find ones that someone else has taken)

But I will be nice and not post all the changes ...
Just a few.

And now you seem to just "hide" from the camera ... not fair.  I wonder is it any camera, or just mine?

But you just know we will be taking LOTS of pictures to celebrate this weekend..........

Happy Birthday Baby,

The world is your oyster
Grab it and place your mark!

But let's not miss any of those candles 
we want all those wishes to come true!

And here we have another one

Thanks Adam!

I may just do a post of
Jenn Birthday Pics
I know I will pay for that one

Oh yeah!!

Mid April Tupperware Brochure ... all on one page!!

The Mid-April brochure has been out for a few days now and I have to say it has some really AWESOME deals that you should be looking at.

As I'm sure you already know, you can always jump onto my current party if you would like any of these items.  Or even better - if you would like to have your own party and earn some of the great hostess gifts for this month - talk to me about getting you all set up.  It is really easy!

Don't miss out on some great items - I LOVE some of these that may just be a "once in a year" items.

Who do you think you are ....

This one is PERFECT

The mind is a wonderful thing ... or it can be a devastating thing.

So lets decide right now to stop thinking that we can not do something ... lets start thinking that we can do ANYTHING we put our mind to ........
And prove everyone (including that doubt in the back of your mind) that you CAN !!!!

Your Day

I love Dr. Seuss

There is always so much to learn ....

Now I need to get moving ... my mountain is waiting and so is yours.
Are you ready to conquer yours?
Or at least try to conquer it??

Where you would rather be

Sometimes I think ... what if?
Would it have been better if?
And then I think .... is this where I am suppose to be?

I saw this one and thought PERFECT.
Yes sometimes it is a matter of where God wants you to be - He has a plan.

Sometimes we forget that it is His plan for us that matters so we have to stop and listen to where He wants us to go, be, do ....and then decide to follow His plan.

And then we end up where we would rather to be.

Monkey Bread

This would be a great brunch item for the up-coming Easter Season because it tastes great, looks great and you can pull it off IN THE MICROWAVE in less than 10 minutes!!!

The only thing I would add is just before I set it on the brunch table ........ I'd either dust it with powdered sugar or a nice powdered sugar glaze (powdered sugar and milk mix and some of the Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend).  It just makes it look "prettier" but either way it tastes wonderful!!

All these Tupperware items are available on my Tupperware Web Site, (or jump on my current party, link in upper right sidebar on this blog) as well as so many other wonderful items (we are not you mama's Tupperware - we are so much more!) you really need to check us out if you haven't!

Mid-April 2014 Tupperware Offers

There are some awesome items in this upcoming Mid April brochure from Tupperware that starts tomorrow!
You know you can always get your Tupperware fix on my Tupperware Site.
Not only do we have AWESOME items in the Seasonal Catalog, but we have great mid month specials. This month is no exception - some of these items have never been offered before and some are just in different colors for your pleasure.

I love these 1 page teasers ... These items below are available from April 12th through May 9th!

The Servalier Bowl set is a FABULOUS deal.  We did offer it last year ... but ONLY in the mid month brochure for 1 month, I can't tell you how many people were disappointed when they missed this set.
If you are thinking about this one - you need to get it now or it could be another year before it makes its appearance again.

And again, we have some great deals that are ONLY AVAILABLE at these prices for a very short period of time - 2 weeks only - from April 12th through April 25th.

The express yourself Tumblers are new and may only be available for these 2 weeks.  They are really cute and as it says ... you can Express Yourself (or your kids can) with inserts that they create.  I have the templates for Father's Day, Mother's Day, Floral, and "Create your own" that I can send to you.

The Breakfast Maker is one of my favorites - omelets in a flash means a good breakfast even on rushed work/school days.
The Stack Cooker Starter Set is great for all kinds of things from side dishes, main meals, desserts .. yes even a cake can be made in this baby in 10 minutes or less!  And this is a perfect way to start your microwave cooking - yes cooking.  Try it out!

You can grab any of these on my Tupperware Site or jump on the Current Party at the top right side of this page.  I still do the e-certificate thank you for orders over $50, so don't forget about that one too

If you want to do your own party so that you can qualify for Hostess Gifts and Bonuses - leave me a message or email me so that we can get you set up to do a book party with online options for family and friends who are "far away" ....... I love these.  If you are interested, we can discuss all the options.
You won't be disappointed I'm sure.

Make sure you stop back here often -- the new Seasonal catalog will be coming out at the end of the month so you know I will be sharing that one too.....

Microwave Cake by Tupperware Ombre Style!

As soon as the madness of the Tax Season Crunch is over ... soon, soon, soon .... I am going to be making this cake - perhaps for Jenn's birthday.  I can see the Ombre Layer Cake in our future!!

The fact that I can make it in the microwave ... yes MICROWAVE ... will make it a hit when I'm late coming home from work, trying to get dinner ready for everyone (the start of birthday weekend) and still have an AWESOME looking and tasting dessert/birthday cake.

Now she's not a big fan of "pink" so I have to think about what color I should use to make this ...
Do you have any suggestions?  What color would you use to make this cake?

We could have made it green for St Patrick's Day ... we could do rainbow colors ... blue/green/violet.

Now you could be making this (and so many other things for breakfast to dessert) too if you had a Tupperware Stack Cooker.  And I LOVE our round cake taker in the mint green (mint ice cream)

If this or any of the Tupperware Recipes and Products interest you, check out my Tupperware Site to see the Stack Cooker and Power Chef System and so much more!

New Day

Sometimes it is difficult to see this but it is true.

No matter how difficult your life is at the moment,
No matter how much you want to curl up into a ball and let your sorrow, pain and disappointments wash over you ...

Let's just move forward and recognize that we have been given a new day to make a difference ..

Welcome to YOUR new day!

Thank you Firefighters Wife for the reminder - we all need a little "nudge" when things seem impossible.

Take me as I am.

I loved this one.

Sometimes I see people (especially young girls) trying to be something that they are not.
Aside from the fact that most of the time they just look silly, it makes me think about what we are teaching them.
I know that I am guilty of this sometimes too.  But I think we need to impress upon them that they ARE special.  That they ARE desired for who they ACTUALLY are - not some "act".

I believe that this is best taught by our actions ....

What do you think?
Do you think we should be something that we start teaching our children (not just the girls)??

They are ALL valuable for who they ARE - for who WE ARE.

Good Things

I love this one.

And of course I think it is so true
