Busy as a Bee… and exciting news

My favorite thing to do with the kids on the weekend is to go outside and watch the honey bees and bumblebees aka “bumblers” fly around our catmint. I’ve come to appreciate their busy nature and despite being terrified of wasps, I don’t mind these guys.  They work hard and they play an important role, which I’ve started explaining to Enzo and Phoebe. Plus, it’s been helping some of Enzo’s bug phobias. 😉


I’ve been busy lately as well. It’s absurdly out of character for me, but as my brother worded it, I’ve joined a pyramid scheme!  Ha ha. Just kidding. I know that right now there seems to be an overabundant amount of ladies selling Mary Kay, Thirty-One, Jamberry and more recently LuLaRoe, and even I have rolled my eyes occasionally when as somewhat overzealous salesperson is pushing their wares constantly and then suddenly wants to be my best friend when I ask a little question and then they’re stalking me and they post several times a day about their product.  I can understand a little bit of the excitement now, but my situation is also a little different.  Oh, by the way, I’m almost a LuLaRoe Consultant!


So it all started with a pair of leggings and I was hooked. I also loved that I could shop from my couch and that you never knew what the offerings would be because consultants don’t choose their prints – its all chance!  It was kind of addicting waiting to see if I’d type in SOLD fast enough for the product I wanted. The clothes are comfortable and versatile and I started thinking to myself… I could do this.  I’m keeping my full-time job, but a little extra money on the side would be really helpful right now and I’d be doing something I really enjoyed! I’ve already started to meet such a great community of women and it’s so encouraging.


So, within the next few weeks I will be an official consultant and peddling my wares. I promise not to be overly pushy or annoying and reign in my excitement on my personal pages.  It is really exciting, though, and what I also love about LuLaRoe is that you can shop around. No one has the same items so it’s actually beneficial to know several consultants – heck, I buy from several!  So, if you want to add me to your list of LuLaRoe dealers I’d be honored.


Seriously, though… you’ve got to try the leggings at the very least. They’re smooth as buttah.
