Life is like .......

I saw this a few weeks ago and thought it pretty well summed things up.

We need to be motivated to move forward.  We need to know what the "next chapter" holds for us.  Yes it could be sad.  BUT it could be exciting and happy and fun and well worth "turning the page".

What do you think?

Has your life been a series of chapters that have combined to make you the YOU you have become?

What chapter are you in at this moment?  Care to share?

Happy Memorial Day 2013

Yes, today is Memorial Day.

Today is the day we publicly thank all those who have given their lives in the defense of this country, the country that I love, the country that has allowed me to pursue my dreams.

It is the day that everyone should be thanking the soldiers, whether active or retired, for their service.

We unfortunately can no longer thank those who have given the ultimate sacrifice,

but we can remember them, to honor their memory.

We can do this by continuing to make this country the BEST it can be so that their sacrifice was not in vain.

Tell me, do you have a special soldier in your life?
Or did you have a special man or woman soldier who gave the ultimate sacrifice you would like to remember here this day?

Get your Pitchers Here .......

Tupperware has brought back their Classic Pitchers!

I love this set!  I have had the smaller pitcher forever and I have to tell you it really really works!  I can not tell you how many times, especially when my kids were small, that pitchers seemed to mysteriously tip over and drench the table.  When the lid is on this pitcher .... no more spills!  It's really easy to use, easy to clean, it is a mother's best friend!! 

At only $25 for a set of 2 - you will get a 2 qt & 1 3/4qt pitcher in these awesome summer colors!

Think about using 1 for kids drinks - kool-aid or something similar and 1 for adult beverages .... cocktails on the deck anyone??

If you order online at My Tupperware Site (link for my current party) and email me your order number, I will enter you into my drawing for a matching set of tumblers.

These are the Summer Tumblers that I will be having the drawing for on May 30th for everyone that orders now thru May 29th!  It's a set of 4 12 ounce tumblers along with the virtually liquid tight seals! 

You could be the lucky one to end up with both pitchers AND the tumblers.  That is if you order from my Tupperware site (link to my current online party makes it easy for me to track) ........... 

Also check out this post, where there were all kinds of suggestions for great products during this month's sales and new gift sets

But remember anyone who orders $50 or more using the links above before May 30th will receive a FREE gift from me.  Not sure what it will be, not sure if everyone's will be the same or different ...... but it will be a FREE GIFT from me ........ just because I can!

Beauty in the Journey

I love this

Here is another one that will be on my wall ...... how about you.
Will this be something that you take to heart?

Is this something that we need to share with our children, from an early age, so they are not afraid to stretch themselves to see just how "good" they are?  It's not that they fail, its that they tried!

3 Simple Rules

I saw this and just had to share it with you.

Perhaps you have seen this before. 
Perhaps it is something that you have tried to preached taught your children.

Are you taking this to heart? 
Sometimes I think the "simplest" of rules are the hardest to remember when we are in the midst of chaos - but are always the ones that work best.

I love these.

My Tupperware Birthday Challenge

As you probably already know, May is Birthday Month at Tupperware.
We are celebrating our 65th Birthday this month, but we are not an "old" company.

We are continually evolving, continually getting better as each year passes ........ 
we are 65 years YOUNG!

We are not your mama's Tupperware,
We are YOUR Tupperware!

We still have some of the classics - those things you think of when you think Tupperware
We have some brand new products that one day will be in that category!

Are you a Disney person?

Do you know a Disney lover?
We have some great products in the Disney Design that would be perfect for your kids, for a kids party (these tumblers make great party favors that last).


And these vintage canisters with the Disney Design can be used for kids snacks, cereals, and more!  How about helping to keep small toys "corralled"?  I'm thinking this might make clean up easier.

 I have been challenged by my manager, director and even the US head office, to reach the next sales level.  To do this, I need to sell another $1000 before the end of the month.  

I know that this challenge can seem extremely daunting, but with all the wonderful things going on this month - Birthday Month - I know I can do it.  But I need your help.

If you have been thinking purchasing some of these great products, today is your lucky day.  If you purchase from me, between now and the end of the month (May 30, 2013) I will give you an additional 10% off you product cost.  You can check out all the wonderful things available this month (as well as all Summer) by looking at the online catalogs on my Tupperware Site, click on the online catalog box (right top sidebar) to make a list of all the wonderful things you would like to have.


Start with the Starter Set for $38 and add the Companion Set for $27 and the New Classics Recipe Book for $10 and you have the Complete System


I was never a microwave "chef", but this set changed my thinking.  This month you could purchase that awesome Stack Cooker, already at 50% off during this month, and I would give you an additional 10% off.  You could get the normally $130 Stack Cooker for $67.50!  And I would send you a copy of the recipe file I have just for the Stack Cooker!

Or the Healthy Steaming System - Tupperware SmartSteamer - the very same one seen and given away to the Dr Oz studio audience last Christmas, which is normally $139, for  $125.10!  And I have a file of recipes for this one too!

 This Servalier 13 piece Bowl Set is a classic, that has been updated for Summer with some great colors to make parties on your deck, in the park, at the beach, anywhere really pop!
And for just $18 more you can add the Stacking Canister Set (2 pieces in blue) or for $15 more, at a party this month, you can add a 4 piece Salad Bowl Set to match!

Now this set is also a "classic" that is a MUST HAVE for anyone that loves hamburgers but HATES to actually touch the raw meat!  Hey Shar are you looking???  I actually haven't seen this set in awhile, but it is back for the summer, so don't miss out.  For $30.50 you get the press, ring and 4 keepers with seals to make your burgers (beef, chicken, turkey, pork, or any combination there of) and store for perfect burgers every time!  I use mine all the time to have "even" perfectly shaped burgers that all cook at the same time (no over/under done burgers because they are all different sizes).

Once I have $250 in sales for this event, yes I'm calling it an event, I will be able to have an additional drawing with everyone ordering in this event for a Round Cake Taker in the brand new color, mint ice cream, that is really sharp! 

Now here is the deal.  To be part of this event, you must message me or email me with your contact information (phone number) so that I can contact you for your order as well as all your information (address, credit card - Visa, MasterCard and Discover) so that I can place your order.   I can't offer this additional 10% discount on product cost if you order online, only if I actually place the order.   But if you would like to order online from my site, I will include you in the drawing for the Round Cake Taker ...... that I can do.

Share with your family and friends.  Share with your Facebook friends.  Share with your Twitter friends.  Don't leave anyone out - believe me they will thank you for it!

Have a whole group that wants to order?  I can make your own party this month and offer the same deals to you if you want.  It's up to you - I can work with you to see if you can benefit more by having your own party!  Talk to me about YOUR Tupperware Experience!

Don't miss out on these awesome deals or MY Tupperware Event.....
Oh and if you are interested as of March 2010, items sold by Tupperware US & CA are BPA free.

Finding your heart

See sometimes mothers do know what they are talking about ... I use to think my mother was crazy when she told me something very "similar" to this when I was young and dating.

When you are looking for that "forever" person you need to remember this.  It's really easy to love someone when everything is going great (if that is really love) but when times get tough .... maybe this is part of the reason why the divorce rate in America is so high.

What do you think?

Looking for a Purpose in Life?

I thought this was really "right on"

Are you willing to be the light?

Some Mid-May Specials

Look at what is possible in the Mid-May brochure! Let me know which set you would like .... I know I am really loving all the combinations. Remember, we can make a book party work for the attendance item (set of 4 Servalier salad bowls this month).

Remember I am your Tupperware Consultant and will work with you any way I can.

Email me, message me or if you want to do it yourself, check out my Tupperware Site for these great offers and so much more.

Happy Mother's Day

I hope that all the mother's out there have a wonderful day.

I hope that they get to spend time with their children or at least get to speak with them.

I saw this and just had to share .... you see, I think being a mom is pretty special - not just because I am a mother, but because I have a pretty special mom too!  I won't get to speak with her today - she's driving - but she is still pretty special.

Mother's Day Weekend and more!

Today is the start of a special weekend for us.....

1st .... today is my brother Joe's Birthday!!!!   HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE!

2nd .... it is the start of Mother's Day weekend - admit it Mother's Day is too special to be just 1 day!

So I've decided that we are going to make this a "momentous" weekend.  So I am going to have a Party Special for this weekend.  It's an "anyone who orders from me special".

If you place an order with me at any time this weekend, I will send you a gift just to say thank you for joining me this special weekend.

You can message me or email me and I will call you for your info or you can join my current online party and place your order by yourself.  Once I have or see your information I will put together something to send to you just from me.  Could be just about anything .... you won't know until you open your package from me --- like the idea?

If you want to have your own party you can do that as well and then perhaps qualify for FREE Tupperware and Hostess Bonuses!  Just let me know and I can get it set up for you.  Remember that during the month of May (our Birthday month) you can qualify for DOUBLE credits!  IF you do an individual party ... you will qualify for your special gift from me so long as it is opened this weekend AND is submitted by May 20th!  Will get you some extra time to get even more orders for even more bonuses!!

Do you know what a miracle is?

Sometimes I think that people forget just how simple it is.

If you believe, you can always feel that shift.  That pressure that is weighing down on your shoulders (that would be fear) just seems to disappear and you are filled with a feeling of peace.

Have you felt it?

Bad Day

So are you having a bad day?
Is it a day that you wish you could just start over?

I know that some times when I am having a really bad day I think my life sucks .. sorry but I bet you know exactly what I am talking about.

I think this one needs to be printed out and framed so it ca sit on my desk as a reminder - 
its just ONE BAD DAY!

What do you think?  Are you with me on this?
Will you keep this in mind for your next "bad" day?

Final Day of Tupperware's Mid April Brochure

Just wanted to make sure you didn't miss out if there was something you wanted from the Mid-April Tupperware Brochure - tonight at midnight is the final day!

There are so many wonderful things in this brochure, like the Thatsa Bowl Tower Set (I have this set in 2 different colors from other brochures that I use ALL THE TIME) or the great Girlfriend Sets that include that wonderful tower and the Quick Chef Pro (I've told you how much I love that one too)! This and so much more is available on my Tupperware Site or you can message me or email me and I can call you for your order and info

 But remember its also Birthday Month so there are all kinds of additional items on SALE, like the Stack Cooker (make a cake in the microwave in 12 minutes after you've made dinner in the microwave in less than 30 minutes) that is one sale for HALF PRICE!  And with order from me I will send you my file of recipes for this great product!

And the new design of the FridgeSmart containers makes keeping your refrigerator neat and your fruits and veggies lasting as long as needed .... no more tossing those salad fixings before you have finished them!  New design but still tops in its class!  I've been using the "older" design and have to say I am VERY impressed.  I have talked to others who have had spinach last 3 weeks! Yes, 3 weeks and still been used with no one being the wiser.  So if you don't want to be losing money on fresh fruit and veggies THIS is the product for you!  I LOVE mine for everything INCLUDING strawberries and raspberries that are good at least a week (ours get eaten before then)

Don't forget you can order these and so much more from my Tupperware Site, you can join in on the current online party (link in upper right sidebar of this blog) or message me / email me and I will call you for your info!

And since it is getting to be grilling  time ........ don't forget the wonderful products we have for you.  Like fresh made burgers but don't like to "touch the meat" like my sister?  How about this great buy?  Make your own burgers (beef, chicken, turkey or any combination) in uniform sizes AND store in the fridge or freezer for later use.  No more stopping while the party is going to make the burgers!

Or the Season-Serve and Season-Server Jr that is a wonderful "set" that is available at a wonderful price for marinating all those steaks and pork chops and chicken for the grill (or oven or stove top).

Distance between you and negative people

how many times have you thought that you couldn't do something or can't accomplish something and realize its because "everyone" says you can't.  Those are NEGATIVE people.

If "everyone" says ... the waters fine lets jump off the bridge ....... would you do it? 

It's time for us to take THIS to heart

and move past those negative comments and negative people and do what WE think is best and then watch all the GOOD things happen to US.

Let's start TODAY

Challenge vs Defeat

I believe that everything is life is a challenge.  It is part of what makes LIFE a life and not just a combination of seconds, minutes, hours.

Without a challenge - why are we here?

But being Challenged does not mean that we can't do something, we can't accomplish something.

It means we are LIVING.

Give me a challenge every day, because when I look back at all I have done, all I have accomplished, I want to KNOW that I have been LIVING and not just existing - DEFEAT is NOT an option.

How about it ... Do you agree?

Respect yourself

You just never know

Sometimes you will see someone and think .... WHY are they staying in whatever situation they are in.  Maybe you just need to show them this to make it click.

THEY deserve to be Happy
THEY deserve to be treated Well
THEY deserve to be Respected

THEY need to Respect THEMSELVES enough!
