Everything looks different

I think this is part of what is meant when they say hindsight is 20 / 20.  
Or maybe you can't see the forest for the trees.

Sometimes we get caught up in the day to day, the problems that seem to be insurmountable, that we have to take a step back and realize what the past looked like - really looked like - and decide that things have changed.  

Hopefully they have changed for the better - but if not .... you can work towards making the change again - hopefully for the better this time.

Plans, plans ... What plans

This one is difficult for me, most of the time.

You see, I may have a control issue.  Ok I said it, I just may have a control issue.  

I get a bit flustered when things are going according to plan or even close to a plan.  I need to "fix" it.

I know God has His plan for my life, and hopefully I will allow Him to continue with His plan and just trust that everything will work out.  It just needs to be in His time because it is His plan.

Ok ......... BREATHE.

Go with the flow .......... and trust that all things will work out as they are meant to.

Join My Team - Join the Party!

We have so much fun going to work ... we always get to Party!
How many of you can say that YOUR job (even your part-time job) is a PARTY?
I can.

If you would like to make some extra $$ every time you go to have your own party or if you want some extra $$ by getting a part-time job that can become your full-time job with all kinds of AWESOME perks.  Have parties for yourself, hold parties for your friends and family, make new friends.  Interested?  Message me to  ... Join the Party - Join the Team!

I started because I wanted to replace some of my "non-Tupperware" pieces that were basically beyond help and I just KNEW that Tupperware was the way to go, especially with the AWESOME warranty program!

Our current business kit, shown here, gets you some of the great pieces you need to get YOUR party started!

The kit includes some refrigerator pieces (I LOVE these), freezer pieces, the Quick Chef Pro (all kinds of things can be made with this baby) and the Microwave Breakfast Maker.  With just these 4 pieces you could have an ice cream making party, a breakfast making party (or Breakfast for Dinner) and there are even more pieces in the kit as you can see.

And if you have $900 in sales in the first 60 days (and trust me that is NOT difficult) Tupperware pays for the balance of your kit - so the whole thing just cost you $30!!  And if you purchase Tupperware for your own use ... those purchases count too.  So if you want something not shown here or you wanted to expand your Refrigerator or Freezer pieces .. those sales count too!  I'm telling you it is a WIN-WIN situation.

This added bonus for this month say Yes offer is great ... for just $7 you can get either one of these great pieces!  I can't wait to get my Wonder Mat.  Although its not a "new" product, it has not been available for a while but I have been told it is a definite must have.  Or the Impressions Classic Bowl Set ... well lets just say it is a classic, it is a must have and would a huge savings for you!

And then as an added incentive ... yes we have all kinds of wonderful incentives through out the Confident Start program you could get these great pieces right in time for the upcoming holiday baking season for just $13!!

And remember you earn commissions from day 1, first sale no waiting !
Lets put this one all together and lay out the numbers.

IF you join my team before September 26, 2014 AND have $900 in sales during your first 60 days...

Kit cost                                             $99.00

Progress is Progress

Sometimes people forget this one, especially when it seems like it is taking FOREVER to get something done and they want to stop, right then and there.

Heck IF I didn't believe that any progress was progress I would have stopped doing a ton of things that have made me who I am today and what continues to shape my world.

Tell me ... do you agree or am I the only one (except benefitsofgiving) that thinks this way???

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake - YUMMMM

I just saw this one on GoodCooks.com and thought oh yes baby this would we PERFECT for the Tupperware Microwave Soup Cups that you can pick up on my Tupperware Website (if you so desire).

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake

If you like Snickerdoodle Cookies, you’ll love this easy microwave mug cake! Cinnamon swirled cake batter is cooked to tender perfection, topped with cinnamon-sugar, and served with ice cream and caramel sauce. A delicious way to get your snack on…quick!
Serves: 1
  • 1 Egg
  • 3/4 cup Vanilla cake mix
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 3 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • Optional: Scoop vanilla ice cream
  • Optional: Caramel Sauce
1.) In a small bowl, whisk together egg, vanilla cake mix, and milk.
2.) In a second small bowl, stir together the cinnamon and sugar. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the mixture into the batter then use a fork to swirl the cinnamon-sugar lightly into the batter.
3.) Place a 1-tablespoon slice of butter into the bottom of a Good Cook ceramic soup mug. Spoon 1/2 of the batter on top, place a second slice of butter. Spoon the remaining batter into the mug, top with the last tablespoon of butter, then sprinkle with remaining cinnamon and sugar.
4.) Microwave on high for 2-4 minutes, just until the center of the cake is set and the cake bounces back when touched lightly.
5.) Top cake with ice cream and drizzle with caramel sauce, if desired. Enjoy immediately.

Learn from the Butterfly

The "lowly" Butterfly is a beautiful creature ... and the source of so much wisdom.

See I told you ... the source of so much wisdom.
We can learn a lot from the butterfly - and not just that it can fly.

What do you think?

Amazon Fire TV

Have you joined the Amazon Fire TV Crowd?
I admit it - I have.  And I am so glad that we did.
I bet you would find all kinds of things that would make it a great buy for you too!

I have an Amazon Prime account, so it really was the next step to purchase one of these.  Once I connected my Amazon Prime account to my Amazon Fire TV I found a HUGE and I mean HUGE selection of TV shows and Movies that I could watch that I have missed.  Some I saw when they were originally broadcast and others I missed - not sure if it was because something else was on or if I just missed it ... but I have lots of new favorites to go with my "old" loves.

We have connected it to our Livingroom TV (a nice Sony HDTV that hubby just "had" to have) and you would think we had our own "stadium" or "movie theater" right in our house!

I know we have just scratched the surface but we already have some new favorites or go to shows when there seems to be nothing on TV.  They have a massive selection of shows and movies and of course games (but we haven't tried any of those yet).

I love that they have a voice search to find what you want to watch.  All you need to do is say the name of the show you want to watch and it finds it for you!  I think that is one of hubby's favorite - he doesn't have to do the searching ... or ask me to find it.

If you have kids, you can set up a "kids network" where you set up how much time they can watch as well as set up their own profiles.  I haven't gotten into this one too much since my "kid" is the one that got us all hooked up while she was home from college for the summer.  That's right, my kid in college ... I'm still having trouble with that one.  Set up is super easy too - and you don't need to have a kid in college to set it up.
Connect to the TV, 
Connect to your Internet
Start Watching

I love that I can catch up on the last season of Covert Affairs, that I somehow would miss.  I was so mad at myself for always having something to do when it was on or worse yet, fell asleep and missed all but the last 10 minute!  Now I was able to watch the entire season and be ready for the new season without missing a beat.

I started watching the series called "The Fringe" and now I can't stop.  I've gone through the first season and now I'm getting ready to watch the second.  Since it seems to have been around for a while, I'm hoping that the next season is as good as the first.  As much as this stretches the limits of what is "feasible", its not totally out there in the realm of Sci-Fi that you just can't watch anymore.

I guess I will start that season soon as well as look to see what else I might like to watch, like season one of Under the Dome.  I missed a few of the weekly shows and got lost - so I'm thinking its time to start from the beginning and catch up. And anyone who just loved Jack on 24 ... you guessed it.  IT'S HERE!

Hubby is liking that he gets to watch The Sopranos again from start to finish without having to get all the DVDs, although I'm sure he might like those as well.  Yes they even have all the seasons of The Sopranos for your watching pleasure!  I just saw that they have Duck Dynasty and American Pickers so I bet he will be trying to take over the TV if I'm not careful.

Anyway, the other thing that this baby does is give you a "one stop spot" for all kinds of viewing.  You can obviously hook up your Amazon account to it to view all their shows and movies (many of which are free with Prime) as well as your  Netflix and Hulu+ accounts and YouTube.com to rent low-cost movies and shows.  You can even watch Downtown Abby on this baby so I know there will be many people who would buy this just for that one show - but there are so many more that I bet you will love as much as I do.

There are just so many possibilities on this baby that I think every household should own an Amazon Fire TV.

Whatcha waiting for?

I bet you could get this baby at your house for about $100 and have YEARS of movies and shows to watch, that would be so much cheaper than going to the movies, which you probably don't do every day/night.

Adult movies and shows, Kids movies and shows - its a total win - win here.

How many weeks?

Have you seen this one?  Did you think about it or just pass it by without thinking?

At first, when I saw this one, I thought really Brad, are you for real?
And then I realized just how many years this is.

I intend to make the most of each and every week I have left.

There may have been weeks that I didn't accomplish what I wanted or even attempted to accomplish anything in particular.

But from now on, I will treat each of my weeks as one to be proud of .... no matter what I do.

How about you?

Thanks for the reminder Brad!

Where fear ENDS

This is an extremely powerful concept.  
One that I think many need to take to heart.  
Read it and THINK

I know many people have not worked or lived up to their full potential because they were afraid.

When you are afraid of failing, you stop and decide you CAN'T do something.

When we stop being afraid .. we can live up to our full potential ... LIFE Begins!

Do you agree??

Brownie Set up for when you are "short on time"

Have you ever wanted to make some home-made snack and think I don't have the time and either take a pass or go for a "box" mix?

Now I have a solution for you that could be made now and put in your cabinet for those times and you are still a SUPER COOL Mom that makes great snacks/desserts at the spur of the moment.

These are called "Sand Art Brownies" that you can have in your cabinet or give as gifts.

You could make these as is, or you could do some "optional" ones.  You could put M&Ms in the mix instead of chopped nuts.  Or maybe you like coconut or butterscotch chips or ... well you see the possibilities are endless.

And the best part .... you can make these NOW and store them in the Tupperware Modular Mate Spaghetti Dispenser so its always available to make at a moments notice (since we all know kids forget about those parties or bake sale needs until 9PM).  I can see these are family and friends gifts as well.

Oh if you don't have the Spaghetti Dispenser ... you can pick them up right now on my Tupperware Site for just $9 each!  You could pick up a half a dozen and have everything ready for this school year without breaking the bank.  You can also get the seals in 2 different colors (black or passion) so you could identify those with nuts and those without if that is a problem for you.  Or those with something other than chocolate chips ... the possibilities are endless.  

I know I am going to pick up a few so I can send some back to college with Jenn to make when late night munchies hit during those cram sessions that still go on every month or so!
