I became a Thirty-One consultant February 8th of last year. Almost a year ago already, my first year as a consultant has been great, I only have one recruit but that wasn't really my plan when I joined. I truly loved these products and still do, I'll admit I'm a bag lady! One of my big selling points in choosing this company was the fact that it's a company made by a woman for womem revolving around a Christian basis. A company that isn't afraid of letting people know their spiritual views is great to me. The founder of this company chose a verse from Proverbs 31:31 to name her company after. This verse talks about how women are Virtuous, and the rock of her family. Seriously a women empowering verse and a company based around it; who wouldn't want to be a part of it?!

I was reading a blog today and came across this post about Proverbs 31. I found the video in this post amazing and the post even more so, her strength while she battles cancer is empowering.
I'll always think of the company I work for when I hear about Proverbs 31 but now I'll also think of this video and remember that we are ALWAYS more than our outward appearance!!

Cabo San Lucas 2012

Our trip to Cabo was nothing short of amazing! I hadn't been to Mexico since my Spanish class trip when I was a junior in HS so I was well overdue for some sun and sand. Steve had never been to Mexico and now I think he is hooked haha

We went with The Larson's and had a great time on their post-honeymoon and our pre-honeymoon. The week seemed to be over before we knew it and coming back to subzero temperatures wasn't something we were looking forward to at all. I still haven't had a full week of work in 2012 so Monday-Friday next week is going to be a shock to my system!

The Riu Palace was our home for a week and it was amazing. All the food and booze you could want, direct access to the beach and a great view of El Arco & Lover's Beach! The resort was amazing and I think we'd all go back there again!!
We put the word vacation to good use last week haha We played in the sand; drank way to much; slept; read; played cards; swam; ate way to much; soaked up the sun; drank some more and all in all had an amazing time!

2012 is off to a WONDERFUL start!

New book?!

Has anyone read any good books lately?
Steven and I leave for Mexico in a week and I want a good book to read for the trip. Something I can't put down that makes me laugh, cry and has a love story (of course) haha if you have any suggestions let me know!!

Wedding, Wedding, Wedding...

It's been four months since Steven and I got engaged and we have eight left to go until the big day, 249 days to be exact...but who's counting?!!

I've had Wedding on the brain a lot lately and I must say I've been pretty productive with the planning so far!

Steve and I got (almost) all of our Save the Date cards sent out the day after Christmas, that was a great feeling.

Last Wednesday I took the day off and my mom, sister and I drove to The Cities to find me a dress.  It was a great day and I found the perfect dress in two hours at the Wedding Shoppe in St. Paul. The dress is gorgeous and I'm glad I don't have it in my possession otherwise I think I'd put it on every night!!

This past weekend I decided to look at different wedding invite ideas and ended up making one online that I really liked so tonight I ordered it along with Reception & RSVP cards. The best part; each invite (stamp and all) will be around $1.25/invitation!!

I know I still have a lot to do for the wedding but eight months gives me all the time in the world ... in the meantime I'll just enjoy being engaged to this wonderful boy!!

2012 is going to be a great year ... I can just feel it already

Happy New Year!
