Thanksgiving Eve! I know everyone is cooking up a storm or have already prepared everything. Me, well, we are going out for dinner. It has been a long 3 months since I have been on my blog. Life, and I know you all understand. I did make a Pumpkin Pie and I am smoking a turkey breast tomorrow afternoon so we can have some leftovers.
I will be making some new aprons over the weekend, so get ready for some new pictures.
Don't forget to check out my ETSY store for Christmas presents.
Cindy was kind enough to let me take over her blog for one post. So
just a little about me… I’m Kim, I live way out in the country and I love it!!
I didn’t grow up in the country so I’ve had to get use to a couple things
like hearing cows moo A-L-L-N-I-G-H-T-L-O-N-G, but now I would not trade it for
anything! On Christmas Day, the man of my dreams asked me to marry him
(insert happy dance) so right now we are in the middle of planning our wedding.
I still can’t believe I’m going to marry my best friend, it feels like a
dream. I would love to hear any Bride-to-be and Wife-to-be advice you
Let’s shift gears just a little bit or I will get carried away with talking
about wedding plans. A few months ago a friend of mine, Mendy, talked me
into becoming a Thirty-One Consultant and I have loved every minute of it.
I’m still learning new things about the company and their products and I
am amazed at the great quality of the products and the company as a whole.
As a Christian the Thirty-One vision meant a lot to me and I loved
joining a team of other great Christian ladies. “ The name Thirty-One is
derived from the Old Testament, where Proverbs 31 describes a virtuous woman
who exhibits hard work, wisdom, encouragement and care for others. Because of
these qualities she is worthy of reward, honor and praise. It is our intention
to celebrate, encourage and reward women for who they are as individuals.
Through God’s strength, we’ve built a family of individuals who are committed
to providing women with a fulfilling, enjoyable and rewarding experience,
whether as a Customer, a Hostess or a Consultant.” What an awesome vision
statement! Thirty-One has something for everyone. Have you heard of
Thirty-One? Do you already have a Thirty-One Girl?
