Breast Cancer Awareness – ZYIA Active

Happy October first my friends! I would like to share with you some very important information about ZYIA Active! They have done a bonus launch for a very special cause!

Cancer has touched all our lives in some way, so this month we’re spotlighting survivors in their journeys and joining hands with our Reps and their customers to fight for a cure.
Through October, we’re donating a dollar from the sale of specially-marked items to the Huntsman Cancer Institute (U.S. sales) and Canadian Cancer Society (Canada sales) to fund cancer research and treatment.

I already decided before this launch that I will be donating a percentage of my profits too! 💞

This is what I wrote in my VIP group!

October is Breast Cancer awareness month! I have decided that since this month is so special to me I will be donating a percentage of my profits to Breast Cancer research or an organization for it.

With today being the first very day I will honor my mom! She is a survivor and I thank God for her everyday! She is one of my best friends and an amazing woman! She has been through so much in her life and I look up to her and strive to be just like her!

Diagnosed June 2011 had lumpectomy in July. 37 rounds of radiation, no chemo! Took medicine for 5 years! Been cancer-free since, almost 10 years!

Everyday you will see a new photo of someone that is a survivor, currently going through treatment or has passed.

Starting today and until the end of the month I will be running a VIP mystery host party. When you purchase please pick Breast Cancer Awareness Mystery Host.

Please let me know if you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them!

Thankful November Day 7

Today I am thankful for my iPhone. Yes, I said iPhone! While I know not everyone has an iPhone and there is that whole debate with the iPhone and android users, I am still thankful that we can pretty much use the internet anywhere we go with our phones.

Think about how much it has changed over the last 10 years. Many things are right at our fingertips now and can be checked within minutes. Need to know how to get to the park? Need to know where your loved one is? Need to know how much money you have in your checking? Need to talk to someone, but you also want to see their face? All of that can be done now! For that I am thankful for iPhones and technology!

Thank you for reading. What are you thankful for?

Thankful November Day 6

Today I am thankful for my car. I am lucky enough to have heat, air conditioning and bluetooth. While it might not be my dream car, it is mine. I own it and it safely gets me from a to b!

My husband and my car are both paid off. Mine was first then his was just this past month. He has a great car too! He even has an Instagram for his Car!

We are hoping that our next vehicle we can pay cash for. I really like not having to make a car payment.

Thankful November Day 5

Today I am thankful for my house, my home. I get to come home after work and be comfortable. I know not everyone has that and I am very thankful for it. When it is cold outside I have heat and when it is hot outside I have the air conditioner. I have a kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedrooms and so much love inside of our home. I am very lucky to have a place to call my own. I do not rent, I own. It is mine, I can decorate how I want. My husband and I have remodeled the entire place to make it ours.

Dinning Room
Kitchen to the left and standing desk in the center.

Living room.

My family and I live in a condo and we have common grounds that we can play on. We do not have to cut the grass we have people do that and when I was single that was super helpful because ya know cutting grass is hard work!

To me there is a difference between the place you live and a home. A home is what is inside and no I don’t mean the furniture I mean the people inside. The ones you connect with daily. I am very lucky to have a loving husband and son!

Our bedroom
Ethans bedroom

Thanks for taking the time to read. What are you thankful for today?

Book Review: Whiskey Surprises

Whiskey Surprises

by Jaqueline Snowe (Classic Curves #1)

Publication date: June 18th 2019 Genres: Adult, Contemporary,

Romance Description:

Five days of crazy no-strings sex. That was the deal. But when feelings sneak in, the risks are too high…

Fern Laughlin prefers two things to help deal with stress—whiskey or sex. The mysterious, handsome stranger at the hotel bar is the perfect combination and the best distraction before the night of her big event. After all, her job’s at stake—she has to raise revenue by five percent or she’s out of a career.

Rylan Cirula despises events like Silvas car shows but his late father’s wish was to get his ’67 Meridian certified in every category. Rylan follows through and is surprised to learn his amazing hookup was the vice-president of the company—and she’s not happy when he pursues her the next day.

She can’t afford any distractions during the show, but Rylan can’t get her out of his mind. She doesn’t care about his money and he doesn’t care about her aversion to relationships. Five days of crazy no-strings-attached sex. That’s the deal they strike.

But neither is prepared for feelings to find their way into the bedroom…

My Review:

Once I read what this book was going to be about. I started it right away and didn’t stop until I finished it. It only took me two days to finish. There was days of hot steamy sex, car shows, and maybe even a love story. Will Ryland and Fern just have 5 days of sex and no strings attacked? I was surprised to find out that the location of the book is right here in St. Louis where I LIVE! I knew exactly where the author was talking about on some of locations in the book. I enjoy books that you can use your imagination and picture everything that is happening. It was even better since I knew some of the locations that the author was talking about. Whiskey Surprises is a 5 star review for me. OH my did you see the cover.. nothing more screams sex. Not just sex, but HOT, Steamy sex.

Thanks for reading my review and I hope you enjoy the book too!

Love Story- Guest Blog

What is Love?

Love is buying his favorite gummy worms and a soda before a long snow shift. Love is cleaning off my windows when it’s snowed or icy so I don’t have to do it when I leave for work. Love is sacrificing sleep or time to ourselves when we haven’t had much time together due to busy schedules. Love is getting into a fight, then making up and working through our problems. Love is holding your newborn who passed shortly after birth and deciding right then to never give up on anything. Love is taking a horrible first year of marriage and making your relationship even stronger than you ever could imagined. Ryan and I first started dating in March of 2014, and our first date was quite the memorable one. We went to our favorite Mexican restaurant and were there for over 4 hours, we talked, laughed, watched the St. Louis Blues game, and drank entirely too much. After that it just felt right, we were together 2.5 years before he proposed in quite possibly the cutest way possible. We are hunters and he wrote in a card for me “This buck has found his perfect Doe, Will You Marry Me?”.  We got married on our 4th anniversary of dating. March 24th 2019 will be our first year of marriage. In that first year we have had 4 deaths including the death of our daughter Emma Louise. Just two weeks after our wedding, my last living grandparent, my grandma Joyce passed away. Two weeks after that my husband’s grandpa Harry passed away, sadly 3 months after our wedding our baby girl was born and passed the same day on July 5th, 2018. And then in December Ryan’s grandma Helen (Harry’s wife) passed away after a fall that left her paralyzed. Not only did we have to endure such tragic events, but we had fights, we were trying to grieve, and I know at one point we both wanted to give up. But we knew that we couldn’t do that, we couldn’t give up on us because that would be like us giving up on Emma. We haven’t had an easy first year of marriage, but it has been so worth it. We have not only grown closer together, but grown into better people. We look at things differently for sure, and have a different approach when an argument starts. The love we have grown for each other is unbreakable and as crappy as our year was. I am happy it happened, that’s not to say I am happy we lost anyone especially not happy about losing our daughter. But the bond this shitty first year of marriage has brought will only bring better years to come. I can’t wait to see what year two has to bring, we will be getting the results to our genetic testing in the next few weeks and hopefully trying for baby number two. I love you Ryan and I always will. Here’s to 60 more years!

My Love Story

Someone once told me that you have 3 true love partners and I honestly believe that. The last one is the one you will spend the rest of your life with.  He will be the person that brings out the best in you. He will be caring, thoughtful, faithful, honest, and so much more than just a partner. He will be your soul mate. I am with this person now and I can totally see a difference between our relationship and past relationships. 
To get the full effect of this amazing love story you have to start at the beginning of when I first thought I was in love. 
Let’s start in high school. Senior year, I get pregnant with my boyfriend at the time  As we all know, most things in high school don’t last. The one good thing that came out of it was our son Ethan. He is my pride and joy! Long story, short, Ethan’s father is a great father to him, but we are better off with other people. 
My next relationship was with someone I met through mutual friends and we were together for 2 year until my son and I moved into his place with him. We were together for six years. He proposed to me while we were on vacation and I was beyond happy. I thought this person, was my person, but I did not see all of the warning signs that told me that he was not. I was so wrapped up in how long we were already together and how I wanted to start my next chapter in life (more kids), I couldn’t see the warning signs.  One day, I was on my way to work and he texted me that it was over, because we had a fight the night before and he went and stayed somewhere else. We did not really get along and I didn’t see that until the relationship ended. So, that break up was very hard, but taught me a lot about who I am. 
Ethan and I moved back in with my parents and I saved enough money after a year to purchase my own home. I worked on myself and Ethan for a while until I thought I was ready to get back into the dating game. 
I went on a few dates here and there, but nothing really stood out. One day this person messages me and we start to talk throughout the entire day and night. Basically, anytime we could. He wanted to meet right away, but I was still nervous. I remember the weekend we met. I needed to go get a birthday present for my sister and he was like, well, I can just go with you! So, I said fine. We met and went to the mall. Now something funny about this is, my sister just had her first son and was wanting a book on how to make baby food. We went into the book store at the mall and searched around for one. We had a good time in the book store and afterwards we went to dinner at Red Lobster. It was delish! He dropped me off back at home, but I was really not ready for the night to end so I asked him if he wanted to come in.  We watched a movie and even cuddled. The next few weeks we talked and hung out some. We were ready for Ethan (son) and him to meet! We thought that pizza and skating would be the best plan, because it is always fun to have an activity to do when the communication might not be there, since it’s a new person in our life. Randy and Ethan hit it off. They liked each other from the start. Now they are like best friends! Sometimes, now and then, they have “bro days!”

Randy proposed to me on my 30th birthday and we had our dream wedding in June of 2016! I always knew I would get married on the beach, with my closest family there! Randy and I are best friends and I wouldn’t want it any other way!
