Our Story – Wedding Bells

FLASHBACK from the past on our wedding website….

It all began over two years ago. We were both using e-harmony online to find a perfect match. I received Sheldon as a possible match. We communicated through the process online and then we met for dinner about a week later. The first place we selected to eat was overcrowded (that’s Pappasito’s for ya!), so we went to Champs (which is now out of business at that location) to have dinner. I do believe we must have had dinner and talked for four hours straight, never running out of things to talk about. It was instant chemistry! That was the beginning of our relationship…….we have dated ever since then.

Sheldon propsed on New Year’s Eve 2007. We had dinner earlier that evening and were in our pajamas on the floor of the living room snuggled in front of the firplace. We were watching the New Year’s Eve celebrations on television. As we watched the one for the central time zone, he went off to the kitchen to get our champange to toast. When he returned we watched the ball drop, toasted in the new year, and he popped the question. My ring was tied on the stem of my glass. Such a romantic!

So what happened in between the first date and now? We have gone many places together and learned more about each other with each passing day!  We went to San Antonio for spring break 2006. On the way, we stopped off at the Natural Bridge Caverns to take a tour. Once there, we enjoyed the river walk, the Alamo, and the wax museum. During the first summer, we went to Fredericksburg to enjoy the small town atmosphere, relax at a B&B, cruise over to Enchanted Rock on the motorcycle, swing by a train tunnel bat cave, relax, shop, eat, and enjoy good Texas music! Sheldon had the opportunity to travel to Australia for 3 months in 2007 for work. He took it and as a result, I got to go and spend a month there with him! It was terrific – lots of the pictures on this site are from the trip. We were able to snorkel the great barrier reef, visit the world’s largest sand island, and enjoy the sites around Brisbane, Australia. Many people thought we would come back from that trip engaged or married, but Sheldon is a planner, and I knew he was probably not planning to do that while we were away from all of our family. In the past two years – we have gone through “2 of each season” to make sure we don’t get CRAZY with the changes in the air. Since we did not, Sheldon planned the perfect time to ask me to marry him.

The first time we spent New Year’s Eve together, was only our second date. Now we have spent many days together and have had plenty of time to get to know each other and our families. We have been to several family get togethers and celebrations with my family and his. He has been there for me in the happy times and the sad and by accepting his proposal, I know he will be there for me always.

Missy Crowley: 4Missy & Me Children’s Designer Items

4Missy & Me Vintage Style with a Modern Twist

missy-crowley-missy&me

Missy Crowley is the designer extraordinaire at 4Missy & Me. She designs and makes quality items for children. 4Missy & Me Vintage Style with a Modern Twist is the perfect name for her designs! They are timeless pieces that will work great in any child’s wardrobe. They are classic and child friendly! She knows a lot about children as she works with them daily as a full time speech pathologist. However, she has been sewing for over 40 years, beginning at age 12 when she had to create a project for a girl’s club at church. Her love for sewing began at that time and the rest, as they say, is history!

missy-crowley-girls-dress

This dress is super cute – it reminds me of a “mommy and me” outfit. I am sure my daughter would feel all grown up wearing this dress next to me. You can see the detail of the dress and quality of the design. I love the bold red top with the polka dots at the bottom. It is playful and bright yet sophisticated as well.

missy-crowley-cabbie-hatMy little guy was asked to model the new “cabbie hat” design for little boys (coming this week to Missy’s Etsy shop). It is super adorable on him and I know it would be on any little boy. The quality of the hat is superb! All the stitching is beautifully done and the darts are neat and clean. It is completely lined on the inside with a coordinating fabric so it is simply perfect! If you have a little guy that you are shopping for, please head over to www.etsy.com/shop/4Missyandme and check out what Missy has in stock or send her your custom order so she can create an original design for you and your little guy!

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.

My Thrive 8 Week Experience

Hi! I am Tara Buck and this is an update to my Thrive 8 Week Experience. I began the 8 week experience on January 2, 2015. To date, I have seen significant changes in my energy level, appetite control, and weight management/loss. I am super excited about how easy it is to use this 3 step system and meet my health goals for the new year! I have been sharing my story with others I know/meet and this has allowed me to take part in the awesome referral program that Le-Vel offers: refer two and your products are FREE. Thereby saving me money and helping me with my overall health goals! Does it get any better?

So the background story of my experience: After trying Thrive out for three days with a 3 day experience that I received from Shaunda Sostand, I began the Thrive 8 Week Experience with the Women’s Lifestyle Pack + DFT. I have had tremendous success with the products and know that I am a THRIVER for life! I take the 2 capsules with a large glass of water, blend the lifestyle mix with ice and skim milk so I can have it as a shake and apply the DFT to my arm. Simple steps, but powerful feeling.

I am a wife and mom with two small children and we are all about enjoying day trips to the park, museum and other various play places. My kids love to be on the go and neither of them nap, so I really need the energy to keep up with them and to still enjoy my husband’s company when he gets home from work. Not only does Thrive help me to keep up with all of the things I have to do in a day, but I am overall feeling much healthier and happier with my own body image. I am proud to share this picture with my results so far.

TaraBuck-body measurements-updated-2-24

I was not happy with where I began – at a weight that was my highest and also the weight I was when I was pregnant with my children, so not being pregnant at the time and still seeing that number on the scale was driving me crazy. I feel like I am making healthier food choices, have quit snacking all the time and have the energy to do so much more each day, but have not incorporated an exercise routine as of yet. As I continue with Thrive I foresee, I will add exercise to my weekly plan. I am really just so happy that the number on the scale is always coming down! Keeps me motivated to stick with Thrive and do more for myself!

Want to know what Thrive can do for you? Take a look at my Le-Vel website, create your own account and begin referrals to your site too. It is a win – win for you and your health!

 

Referring is KEY to Business

Are you referring business to other small business owners?

Referring business to other business owners plants seeds that you will one day reap as a business owner. Referring is the lifeblood of business! Do onto others as you would have them do onto you. Isn’t that the golden rule in life? So shouldn’t that be the golden rule of business? If you offer referrals, others will also begin to think of you when they know your business and ideal client.

Radical Referrals The Woodlands is a whole new way for independent business women to grow their businesses! Do you need more leads for your business and want to increase your reach? All Radical Referral members are committed to referring business to each other. We are also coached to ask for business at the handshake so we can build our business stronger!

My THRIVE Experience

Have you ever had such a great experience that you just had to share? Truly how I feel about my THRIVE experience! Press play and hear what I have to say about my time using the premium nutritional supplements created by Le-Vel. I am super excited!

[youtube]http://youtu.be/TIZI_COCWxI[/youtube]

Hi! I AM Tara Buck and I began a three day sample of THRIVE on December 19th. The first day, I took the 2 capsules with a large glass of water, blended the lifestyle mix with ice and skim milk so I could have a shake and applied the DFT to my arm. Simple steps, but a powerful feeling.

My energy on day one was super. I could not believe it! As a mom with two small kids, I was energized enough to do all the household chores and play with the kids all day. I even attended a holiday shopping event that night and did not even feel one bit tired when I returned home. I was very IMPRESSED!! Day 2, same high energy level and I was really able to focus and get things done. I knew at that time this was a product I could take easily and it could help me reach my health goals. My husband also tried a three day sample. On 12/26, we ordered the couples pack with the DFT so we could get back on track in the new year! We started the 8 week experience on January 2nd as soon as our package arrived!!

Today, I am on day 13 in my 8 week experience and there is no turning back for me now! I AM A THRIVER! I am most excited about getting our products FREE every month by referring two customers that start their experience on autoship just like we did for the great savings! This is a great offer by the Le-Vel company, refer 2 and get yours free, can’t beat that. This not only saves my family money, but it is helping with our overall health. Thanks for allowing me to share my THRIVE experience!

If you want to know more about this cloud based business or the premium nutritional products, INBOX me today or email me at iamtarabuck@gmail.com. I would be happy to share!
