Let the planning begin

I am happy to report that we are NOT moving!! Praise the LORD! The offer came back for Hubs..and it was better than expected.  He still had a hard time making the "FINAL" decision...was it the right thing to do, what if Texas was better, etc.  I knew in my heart that God had truly answered our prayers and am SO thankful to each of you for praying for us.  I was so at peace about the entire thing...and trusted God that he had it under control.

So....now I feel like we can start PLANNING our next year. FINALLY! We are heading to St. Louis this coming weekend to meet our newest nephew..and I can hardly wait. My poor brother has been having some issues with his stomach and back...so hoping that he begins to feel better soon and is able to enjoy being a daddy to his new little boy.

I packed the final Christmas items away last night. I had left some on Y's bed...and happily stuffed them into his closet till next year. What a relief!   And I now have the urge to deep clean the house...it's time.

Lots of changes have been happening at my FT job. The company I work for depends on cold weather..a lot...and for most of us..it hasn't been as cold as is needed to help things stay a float. Many of my friends were let go a couple of weeks ago...and I honestly feel like I am hanging on by a thread.

My prayer is that I can hang on till next December/January.  At that time, we will be able to switch our insurance from my company to Hub's company.  At that time, I hope to be two leadership levels higher with Thirty-One and will be working full time from home. I am so excited about this! Less than a year left! WOO HOO!

I am blessed with an amazing group of women on my team. I am so thankful for each and every member of my team. I can hardly wait to meet many of them who live far away at our National Conference in Atlanta, GA this fall. It is going to be one big GIRLS WEEKEND!  Now with a larger team, I have started to see many of our fabulous ladies fulfilling their dreams and goals.  Many are paying off debt, getting some much needed mommy breaks, donating to amazing organizations, and I believe we even have a couple who are going to be quitting their full time jobs to stay at home with their kids.  What a blessing Thirty-One is! I am honored to be called their leader and I LOVE helping them achieve their goals no matter how big or small they are.

Hubs and I are now in the planning stages of our FREE cruise! Really...yes! It's FREE! We haven't decided if we want to do the Caribbean or a cruise over in Europe. (Yes...I know..stay away from the cruise line that just sank!).  I hope to get this finalized by the end of the month.  The Europe cruise would be longer....and not till the end of June. The Caribbean cruise we would be able to take sooner...so we'll see what decision we make.

That about wraps it up from here! I am still drinking 1-2 Body By Vi shakes a day. I crave my Mocha Latte in the morning...and always feel better if I have an Orange Julius for lunch.  Down 4 lbs and holding steady..I have let myself slack a little...but still feeling great!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!
