Easter 2015

Easter2015

Easter is a time to celebrate! We did just that with family. We spent the entire weekend enjoying family time!

It is such a blessing that my grandmother is still with us to enjoy her great-grandchildren and that they are able to enjoy their time with her.

I hope you enjoyed your family during Easter weekend!

 

#IamThankful for Four Generations

RV Trip with Four Generations

My husband and I decided to buy an RV a little over two years ago. We have taken multiple trips with the kids. We have gone to places to meet friends and vacation together. We have taken it across the country to a business conference as a family. But on my latest RV adventure, I journeyed without my husband. YIKES! I had to learn a few new things about our spiffy mode of transportation, but that was easy enough to do!

Back in September, my grandmother went to visit her brother in South Carolina. My Aunt and Uncle took her there by car and then she flew back. Well, my grandmother wanted to go see family in Georgia around Thanksgiving. She mentioned it and I thought this would be a great opportunity to take her, my mom and my kids. I had not been to see all of the extended family since my daughter was one month old and my Great-Uncle Richard was celebrating his 80th birthday. So there you have it, I told her we should go and so began the story of the Four Generations RV Trip!

We left early on a Monday morning and arrived shortly before midnight. Technically, we got there in one day. We enjoyed the ride by snacking in the RV and stopping a few times for gas along the way. My mom kept my kids entertained with movies in the DVD player and grandma and I chatted in the cockpit of the RV. Once we arrived in Senoia, Georgia, we were greeted by our gracious hosts, the Zabawa family.

We stayed until the following Monday and celebrated an early Thanksgiving with my grandmother’s brothers, sisters-in-law, and all their family members that could make it to Fayetteville, Georgia too.

We had a really great time catching up with everyone, visiting a few places, and discussing quilting (my grandma’s current favorite time filler). If you want to check out the the family fun and see some beautiful sights with our smiling faces in the picture, click play and enjoy!

During November, I have been sharing weekly about things #IamThankful for, but this trip takes the cake. It will forever be a priceless memory for me and my children. Until we make it to Georgia again……

Happy November!

#IamThankful for Family Traditions

Does your family have long-lasting family traditions?

We share in some wonderful family traditions each year that help remind us of all that we have to be thankful for as a family. Celebrating Thanksgiving together as a family with a prayer, dinner, and then a relaxing football game is the way to go! Once we had children, their grandparents wanted to take it one step further and kick off the Christmas season with them the day after Thanksgiving. We now enjoy the tradition of going to Santa’s Wonderland. Don’t know what that is? Take a few minutes, click play, and see the sparkles in our children’s eyes as they watch the lights pass by!

At Santa’s Wonderland, they really know how to help you get into the Christmas spirit! They have a grand venture in College Station, Texas. If you have not been, I would highly recommend it. It may be a little crowded since we have had such beautiful weather this fall, but they really have their business together in an effort to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. Purchasing tickets online will help you save a few dollars and some time in line. Parking – not to worry, get a pass or just park at the Texas World Speedway and take a shuttle bus over to Santa’s Wonderland!

Enjoy Santa’s Town, live music, camp fires, funnel cakes, holiday movie on the big screen, photos with Santa, train ride, petting zoo, Texas Longhorns,  and shopping. Then take a hayride or horse carriage through the lights. You will be glad you did! Have fun and let me know how much you enjoy it!

Happy November!

Kicking Business in 2014

Amazing Accomplishments in the Making

WOW! What a year this has been for me in the business world of things.  I’ve been wanting to open up my own business and not a direct sales business for 20 years. This finally happened for me this year! October 2014 was the month that started my 20 year dream of opening my own business.  Bri’s Place was officially opened November 1, 2014.  Bri’s Place is a Women’s Inspirational Boutique/Photography store.  It’s inspirational because of the focus of Bri’s Place. I wanted a place that women could come, see a pretty store that felt like home to them, a place where when they left they felt loved and maybe even inspired, and it’s also a place where Heaven Bound Women’s Ministries is held monthly to inspire, encourage, and equip women through the word of God.

Bri’s Place is a place that you can currently rent for small business training classes for direct sales companies, it’s a place to get your photos taken, to find that cute little shirt or jewelry that you’ve never seen, and it’s a place to come and hangout with Bri (me).

I am so very thankful for this business opportunity that God has blessed me with.  I am blown away by how much actually goes into doing this and I’m blown away by the support I have had from friends and family.  There have been some challenges and I’m praying that they are easy fixes and they won’t be a challenge any longer.  I do know that being in Old Town Spring has been a fun experience so far and it is exactly where I’ve imagined having my store.  So thankful to God for how He is always faithful in helping us reach our dreams.

Hope to see you soon!

What if the turkey got burned…

What if the turkey got burned? …..or worse yet, it wasn’t cooked at meal time!

The turkey, 12 years ago, only cooked 4 hours instead of at least 8 for 20 lbs. I had to catch a Greyhound at 5:00 and it was 2:00. We microwaved the outer layers of the huge bird and the potatoes and vegetables completed our meal. Gravy was not made as the broth was not cooked to a well heated consistency. And stuffing encountered the same scenario. But you know what?

We had time to play with the kittens and laugh, play with the kids and plenty of hugs before my 2 hour Greyhound bus ride back home. I was so happy to see my daughter and share these moments with her that day. So thankful for my daughter.  Love You Deb Debs 🙂

Business and Personal Growth

Owning a Business Can Change You

For better or worse….My personal business has changed me, therefore #IamThankful!

I began on a journey in January of 2013 with the decision to start my own business with a multi-level-marketing company. I loved the skincare products and knew I could share information about them with others, so I figured it was a winning idea. Why not get compensated to share with others about what I am using on my skin? At the time I began, my son was only about 6 months old, and I knew I wanted to continue to stay home with him and my older daughter. Starting a business would allow me to feel like I was contributing to our family and still raising my babies! I knew this would be great fit for me.

I have built a client base over the past two years with clients that continue to enjoy the products and purchase them on a regular basis. I do love that this is a residual income for our family and I certainly appreciate my clients. They are an awesome group of women and men that are using dermatologist created skincare regimens to fight the signs of aging, reverse sun damage, unblemish acne prone skin or soothe sensitive skin. I myself, being a former science teacher love that I am still able to ‘teach’ others about how to care for and protect their skin. I am also proud to offer them products that are award winning and guaranteed to do what they say they will do!

In 2014, I have stepped out in new and different ways. I would have never embarked upon anything in the journey of 2014 without encouragement from other women in business. As I enrolled in a social media mentorship program with Portia Chandler, I never realized how my path would twist and turn or how much I would be stretched to learn. This mentorship program has been a gift. It has encouraged me to try new things, step up as a leader, step out of my comfort zone, be creative and just embrace life! I am still learning, growing, and changing as a person and as a business owner. I am determined to never stop until I have my ultimate goal accomplished. Many things are vehicles that drive you along the road in life and I intend to keep going until I reach mine!
