Brighten that grout

April 24, 2017

We have listed our house for sale and one of the last things we needed to address was the kitchen floor. Any time we have tried to whiten the grout in our tile floors we’ve always headed to the hardware store to purchase one of the bleach like whitening pens. Well….we tried that to no avail.

Talking about cleaning products is not typical on this blog BUT what we found that actually worked was so good that I just had to stray from the typical and share with all my friends. So I hope y’all don’t mind, but this is good.So after asking my favorite teacher (also known as Miss Pinterest) I found the cheapest and most surprising solution. As easy as Baking soda + Hydrogen Peroxide.

Family Togetherness

April 22, 2017

These past few years have been intense. I’ve struggled, I’ve felt heavier in so many areas of my life, there’s been times of grandeur that I never expected, times of normalcy, times of questioning “why.” Overall, from the other side, I am humbled. Humbled to be allowed to go through the depths. Though rough, I know He’s using these times to sharpen me to be able to help others.

And through it all we’ve grown closer together. My family. The constants. The always heres. The never leaving yous. The catch you when you falls.

Last week we went on a family vacation that I thought only occurred in tv shows. The Reis family said Aloha to Kona, Hawaii! It was so unbelievable that I refused to even pack until about a week before departure.

Before I bombard you with photos I want you to know *why* we went. And *how* it was even possible.

Plexus

Processed with VSCOcam with c2 preset

{The mint container is how I keep track of my daily supplements}

This life changing supplement has done more for our health and our finances and our family than I ever would have believed. I made fun of Plexus people for two years before I secretly went behind backs to try this pink drink. I was so desperate at that point that I didn’t even ask what it was. I just bought it and tried it. Then boom – energy, balanced hormones, skin issues reversing, saying buh-bye to sugar cravings, restoring my gut health, etc. These simple little supplements brought my body back to the way I was created and meant to be. Before it was GMOs, sugar, stress, having many babies, etc…now it was time to focus on ME. I can not be the wife and mother I should be if I’m struggling physically and emotionally. I want to give my family good memories and not be the reason we had more grey skies than rainbows.

The business side of Plexus is equally as amazing as the products. I did not expect to be where I am at right now. Why should a college drop-out, mother of seven be making a six figure income and be sent on vacations to Hawaii? And drive a brand new Lexus?? Yeah, it doesn’t make sense. People like that work 80 hours a week at a job they don’t enjoy. They struggle to climb up in the ranks. I am working a “job” where I get to play with my friends every day and in Hawaii! I get paid five times a month. My best days are when I have a friend who trusts me and joins me. We then are able to link arms and work this thing together.

My husband told me recently that he wasn’t as stressed about finances since last spring when he realized this Plexus thing was legit. And that right there blesses me beyond measure. To know that my husband isn’t dreading being able to pay the bills.

I want to share our Kona experience with you but want to give you my husband and I’s Plexus page so you can easily join us and be with us in Maui next year! I want to be there to help you so don’t hesitate at all to ask me questions. I’m here to help you. Click on the link below ⬇️

When Journaling

January 15, 2016

Lesson of the Promised Land

My daughter came to me this morning and asked me to read her journal. Here is some soul deep truths she spilled onto the pages. I am writing it exactly as it is written within her book.

This is a story about Tracy O’Harlem (not real name). There she sat, a lump in her throat, and glistening tears in her eyes. The colorful cover of her diary bekoned her to come closer. The picture of a soaring bird seemed to say ‘Come, tell me your problems and I will comfort you.’ Actually, it seemed everything in the room was speaking to her. The high clock looked down on her saying ‘Now, quit! Only babies cry!’ The figurine of a sad ice skater seemed to be weeping ‘Poor Tracy! So…young!’ So Tracy gulped to hold down the tears, and reached for the diary which she got for her 11th birthday. She tried to count the months till her 12th birthday. ‘Two. Huh.’ She thought, ‘I guess I should start planning.’
She took a breath, grabbed her faverite neon orange pen. Then Tracy wrote.

‘My dear diary, today has just been heinous! First, when I woke up it was fine. but then after lunch…Erin, my two month old sister was screaming her lungs out, Peter was determined to wear ‘big brother undies’ even though, he keeps peeing everywhere but the potty, and Katie and Toss were fighting AGAIN! Momma was trying to get everyone to go outside, so I had to read my bible outside! I – okay pause. My daddy taught me this when I’m tempted to complain. Let’s start over.

‘My dear diary, today has just been wonderful! First when I woke up, it was simply marvoles! Momma’s calming Erin down very patiently. Erin’s so cute! Peter is determined to potty-train. I’m so proud of him! Katie and Ross have been trying to resolve their differences — I’m surprised how well they keep it under control. I’m really glad I was able to go outside because I think God doesn’t want us locked up in a box our entire lives. How grateful I am to be able to read His Word!

‘Do you see the difference, my precious diary? Same events, different attitudes. I pray God will give me a positive attitude.

Once again, I am humbled that I gain more insight from my children than they could ever gain from me.

 

Blessings!
