She’s A Wife

In Uncategorized on December 9, 2009 at 9:21 pm

I have no words.

My sis is married, and so stunning!

Tears.

So instead I’ll post my speech.

I have been writing this speech in my head since Sall and I were really little. Not only because I couldn’t wait for the day that she met the man that she would marry, but also because Sally has had so many blonde moments and I couldn’t wait to share them with everyone. She’s lucky that I lost the journal I was recording them in though…
 
Weirdly enough, just after I started writing this speech, I came across Sally and Bruce’s EHarmony ads and I thought it’d be great to read them. Here’s Salls:
 
“Pretty little Trolly Dolly looking for tough guy. Must have money and be willing to spend it (on me), cannot have the occupation of a farmer, cannot live in Dawson Creek, must have accent. I have big brown eyes, will woo you with baking and home made meals. Getting old at 24 so save me quickly”.
 
Bruce’s was kinda interesting:
 
“Cop man looking for maiden in distress. Loves long walks on the beach, chick flicks (such as Grays Anatomy) and playing scrabble. Willing to sell motorbike for huge engagement ring and use handcuffs when needed.”
 
For those of you that don’t know, I am the reason that Sally and Bruce met. 😀 Sally had it in her head that she wanted to move back to Australia, so I hatched a plan to make her stay in Canada. I forced her to sign up with EHarmony.
 
Via phone and emailing Sally and I went through the guys that were suggested for her, not really finding anything super interesting until we landed on Bruces’ profile. For some reason I had a feeling that this “Bruce” guy was the one for her.
 
After her first date with Bruce, Sally called me and told me all about it. Sall’s told me all about her other dates…even texted me while she’s in the middle of them…but this was different. With every other guy Sall has dated, she’s been unsure. She’s questioned every step, she’s worried, and her stomach has been in knots the whole time. But with Bruce it was comfortable from the start, Sally didn’t have any questions, she wasn’t uncomfortable during the date and she fully enjoyed herself and this meant alot! My plan had worked!
 
Bruce, I know that you are exactly what Sally needs for a husband. You’re calm, relaxed, and adventerous. You’re a born leader but in a gentle way and you obviously adore Sally to pieces.
 
Sally, I know that you’re going to make an amazing wife. You have the biggest heart, you take care of those around you, you cook a mean meal, you’re understanding and you’re generous.
 
Marriage is amazing guys, you’re going to love being married! If I could give you one piece of advice it would be to always listen. Truly listen to what your partner is saying, realize that what they’re saying is a real concern to them, listen to their venting, listen to their happyness, and listen to their worries.

I know you two are meant for each other, you compliment each other in every way.
 
Everyone please fill your cups. To the beautiful couple: to love, to happyness, and to PDA. To the new Robinsons!

My ‘Why’

In Uncategorized on June 27, 2009 at 7:19 pm

I just posted this entry on my Facebook page and thought it would be a good thing to post here too!

I have always been an entrepreneur, always trying business ideas no matter how big or small, and I’ve always known that owning my own business would be the only way I would really be happy about my job.

That’s why when Arbonne came along, I knew I had to jump on that train! The way that Jannah explained that she was able to take months off of work to be with her new baby, and STILL get paid a full wage, really made me realize that that’s what I wanted. Besides that, there was something about this business that I trusted and I felt clarity and a nudge towards it.

Something that Grandpa keeps reminding me about is that I’ll never be happy until I’m my own boss. And if you know me, you’ll know how true this really is! I’ve been working full time since I was 16 and I’ve had at least 15 jobs since then…some of them at the same time…(Let me just clarify that I’ve only been fired from one work place…the rest I left because I wasn’t happy for various reasons).

I want to be my own boss, I want to set my own work hours, I want to earn a wage that I’m worth!, I want to take holidays when I want, I want to sleep in, I don’t want to be blamed for someone else’s mistakes, I want to stay at home with my kids and still have a full time wage coming in. And you guessed it! Arbonne offers all of this and more!

What other job can you work at and say “My wage will never stop increasing!” or “Guess what, my boss is giving me a Mercedes!” or “I get paid for my co-workers work too!”, or even “I’m headed to Mexico for an all inclusive trip paid for by my company!” 

Everyone seems to think that there are very few people who actually succeed at businesses like these…but guess what! I know and my upline personally knows MANY women, in BC, in Alberta, in small towns and big cities, that are driving their Mercedes, earning huge cheques per month and going on trips with Arbonne!

If you want it, it’s there! You just have to push forward and take it for yourself, and that’s what I’m doing. Care to join me?

 

If you’re curious about Arbonne and the business, listen to this link by Becky Young. It’ll only take 25 minutes aprox and it’s SO interesting! If you want to go further from there, let me know! I’d love to answer any questions you have!

Three Things

In Uncategorized on April 27, 2009 at 4:00 pm

It’s Monday, and although it’s a day closer to my Europe get-away, it’s not a good Monday. BUT I was reading Three Beautiful Things, a blog on my blogroll, and I decided I needed to cheer myself up so here’s three things that I find GOOD today:

  1. My fruit smoothy is delish!
  2. It’s snowing and sunny at the same time…how weird (but cool looking!) is that?
  3. My new purse that Mom bought me. Red plaid, black pleather. For our trip to England…it’s SUPER awesome! And weirdly enough, my Mom picked it out and I love it! (This doesn’t happen often).

There. Sigh. I actually do feel better already! Maybe I should try some more:

  1. I’m running to get a Starbucks asap.
  2. The NEW Arbonne catalogs came out and I’m browsing through one.
  3. I’m placing a BIG Arbonne order tonight. Yay!
  4. My hubby is super hot. And I get to kiss him all day ’cause we work in the same office.

Sigh. Yep, I feel good.

Maybe good enough for a cup of tea.

Then Starbucks.

Feature Friday – Amazonika

In Uncategorized on October 31, 2008 at 6:12 pm

I refuse to let winter get me down! I’m going to surround myself with color; flowers on the table, colorful clothes, colorful decorations. Amazonika is a great way to keep color in your life through the dreary winter months.

Amazonikahas prices that are too affordable to pass up, and products that will make you smile. Check out their beautiful shop on Etsy and stock up on great stocking-stuffers or a nice piece of jewelry for the Christmas party.
