This has been a great week not only for the kids, but me as well. I always chuckle when I think about the process of meeting new friends when I move to a new place. I feel like I'm stalking these could be friends. LOL! I've done this enough to have this inner feeling of who I would really get along with. So...the main place for stalking, I mean making new friends is at the Little Gym.;) For the last four weeks, we've had a class or practice three days out of the week. Well, this week I got two numbers! It sounds like I'm picking up guys in a bar huh? :)
One of these moms is a Director for Mary Kay. She had a "Night of Glamour" party last week and I got an invite. I hadn't been to a Mary Kay party before and I have to say that it was fun! This was the first time I was able to go out with just girls and I got to play with make-up. Fun right?! If only there was wine too, but I guess you have to be careful with tipsy ladies putting on make-up. :) I ended up buying a few items.
|Bronzer because I was out. This one doesn't have the shimmer that I'm use to. :(|
|Eye primer to keep my make-up on ALL day.|
|Firming eye cream because at 35 I need that. :)|
Plus I won a foot scrub in a raffle and got a lotion just for coming! Great girls night!
Their Ultimate Mascara is awesome!!! My eyelashes looked so great! I actually looked like I belong with the rest of my fam. For those that don't know, Randy, Dylan and Ava all have beautiful ridiculously long eyelashes!
|This a good pic of Dylan's eyelashes!|
Frankly, I kind of like the idea of emailing her what I want and we make the exchange at Little Gym or a playdate. Very convenient!
The day after Mary Kay night I had a Celebrate & Connect meeting for Thirty-One.
I had arranged for a new neighbor friend to come watch the kids while I went. Unfortunately, she no-showed!! Yikes! Thankfully, the host had said her house was kid-friendly because I showed up with mine! I also agreed to drive another consultant, who I hadn't met before, to the meeting so we were a group when we arrived.
As I was chatting with the host, we quickly came to realize we had a lot in common. Her hubby flies the same helo that Randy flew in the Navy.
We were in Norfolk at the same time, they lived in Hawaii too (not at the same time as us) and they are heading to San Diego in September. Our kids are about the same age and she is a Director for Thirty-One. Crazy huh?! Well, I'm not a director yet, but that is where I'm headed!
This meeting got me so excited about really kick starting Thiry-One out here that as some of you may know, I've already made some changes. :) So...now I have a Thirty-One blog, email and work phone number. I'm working on a facebook page. Thirty-One doesn't allow consultants to have their name in an email or domain name so I had to choose one. Meet The Sassy Purse Lady! :) I'm excited at where my business is going to go!
If this isn't enough...I also lost 2 pounds! I have to give a shout-out to my friend Roselyn. I firmly believe that the HIIT workout you sent me is what helped those pounds run away!
So...new friends, a recharge in the business, getting healthy; all these make for a great week. Can we do two in a row? I'm crossing my fingers! :)
