Sweet Samuel is Eleven!!

Our sweet, Star Wars loving Samuel turned 11 yesterday!  We have enjoyed having some friends over for a sleepover/celebration.  I have also learned that everything takes a LOT longer when you have no clue what you are doing (such as this cake!).  R2D2 is semi-recognizable, Chewbacca, not as much.  But, Sam was gracious on both accounts!  So thankful for this boy!

FIVE days! . . . and 49+ reasons you might not have thought of!

There are just 5 days left to grab a Young Living starter kit for 10% off!!

The kit includes 11 of the most wonderful oils on the planet, an awesome diffuser, several samples, wholesale pricing on any future orders, direct access to me!!, a private network of help/ideas AND best of all, NO ongoing commitment or strings attached! . . . WHAT are you waiting for???

Leap before midnight on Feb 29th and you'll also get an additional $25 cash back gift from me ON TOP OF the sale price! (when you sign up as a wholesale member with a starter kit). This is like stacking discounts at Kohls - only better!

Do you realize that breaks down to LESS THAN $12 per bottle of oil (tax and shipping INCLUDED!) with several samples AND a 3-in-1 diffuser/humidifier/atomizer (an $83 value alone) essentially tossed in for . . . free!??? One of those oils is Thieves (which kills 99.996% of all airborne pathogens and bacteria after just 20 minutes in the diffuser . . . another of those is FRANKINCENSE - which nearly walks on water . . . do you KNOW how much Frankincense costs??!!).  They gave this oil to baby Jesus, people! WOW!

No one, NO ONE, in their right mind can turn that down! (sorry, but it's true!). Young Living produces the finest quality oils 'out there' (for the past 20+ years). If you've ever wanted to dip your toes in the world of essential oils and find out what all the fuss is about, NOW is the time! Each bottle contains 85-100 drops of oil, so this collection gets you around 900 drops. Oils are extremely concentrated and a typical application is 1-4 drops, so the starter kit will last you awhile. They will certainly last you long enough to play around, experiment on your family, fall madly in love with their oily goodness and wonder what you EVER did before you knew about oils.

Best of all, you will not be going into using these oils blind.  You will gain immediate access to an exclusive oil group that will really help make your jump into oils easy and enjoyable. It's the same group I started with almost 2 years ago (except now it has about 50K people in it)

Just in case you are STILL confused and you think that I'm trying to sell you expensive oils that you really don't believe you'd ever use . . . here is a short list of things that people are using essential oils for:

runny noses
sore throats
skin care
sore muscles
sugar cravings
appetite control
warts/skin tags
bloody noses
ear infections
fighting infection
pain relief
stress reduction
first aid
sinus drainage
hot flashes
menstrual cramps
tummy troubles
restless legs
hormone balance
hair growth
toenail fungus!
allergy relief
diaper rash
room deodorizing
bug spray
general disinfecting
soap making
lotion making
candle making

and this is NOT even an exhaustive list!  Really, the possibilities are endless!

Contact me! or go to www.yldist.com/lisagrenier for more information . . . OR don't. and run the risk of kicking yourself later (as you try to figure out WHAT YOU COULD POSSIBLY HAVE BEEN THINKING when you passed up this offer!).  You've been warned, lol!.

P.S. - You don't even HAVE to become a "half crazed, oil-obsessed, take them with you everywhere, junkie" to benefit from this collection of oils! . . . but no one will hold it against you if you do!

Yay for baby step home improvements!

The boys helped pull up the old, gross kitchen floor earlier in the day and Kevin spent the rest of the afternoon replacing it.  He did a great job and it looks really nice!  The old one was beyond pathetic - coming up all around the edges, big gouges and holes in the middle of it.  It's SO nice to not catch your feet on the floor when you walk across it! It's the little things!!  We're also working, one section at a time, on painting some walls, doors, cabinets, etc. It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint will do for an old house.  Yay for a built in work crew (& their friends!)

Sixteen and a half!

We got to take this beautiful girl out for her half birthday celebration recently.  She chose a scenic spot (Garden of the Gods in CO Springs) where we could hike around in the cold and she could take some fabulous pictures -- she has SUCH an eye for photography!  We also squeezed in a DQ stop and ended the evening at one of her favorite restaurants, Red Robin.

We are so thankful to be the parents of such a wonderful young lady!
