Kids Crash Video

Arbonne Kids

So after the 8th try of making this video the kids came in and crashed my one woman video making party.  The results were too hilarious not to share… and let’s face it, their version is WAY better! Click Here to check it out.

“Taking the Dreadtime out of Bedtime”

Everyone Sleeps

I’m so excited about this you guys! This couple has an amazing story!

Scott Buechner and his wife created this series of videos to help their foster children fall and stay asleep.

I attended High School with Scott and I am totally amazed by he and his wife. They floored me by setting up a coupon in my name to help the families I care about. You can save $5 by entering “Jennifer Miller” in the coupon code section at checkout! Please head over to their Facebook page and check it out.

If you purchase a video, I will donate $5 to a charity that supports foster parents! Let’s do this! Click Here

Scott and Allison Buechner, owners of Quiet Time Entertainment were presented with a challenge several years ago, foster parenting two toddlers who suffered from night terrors and were afraid to sleep. Faced with this challenge they came up with the idea of the video called Everyone Sleeps. Scott, an Emmy award winning producer and editor with over 23 years under his belt took on the challenge and Everyone Sleeps became what it is today. Our video was meant for our family, and a few friends as a way to calm their children. Well, it worked for us, it worked for them, and is now working for parents all over the United States! The Everyone Sleeps series of videos is a perfect blend of images and sounds to help parents, but not replace them, in their efforts to soothe and relax children into a restful state that facilitates napping or a good night’s sleep.

Adopt A Grandparent

Adopt A Grandparent

Hi Everyone!  A month ago, I had a major career change and I switched companies so that my family could have some amazing benefits.  I have had a lot of health problems and I figured that if I was going to be in networking marketing, I might as well be part of a company that will actually help us get better!  I absolutely love Arbonne and we are so blessed to have the opportunity to share it with others.

Last Wednesday, the most amazing thing happened to me.  I have a very high goal of adopting 60 grandparents and had big plans to go around town getting donations.  Please watch this YouTube video for the whole story and email me if you are interested in Adopting a Grandparent! It is only $25 to adopt and it pays for each grandparent to have a package of Arbonne products (hand creme and lip balm).  I will wrap each present by hand and write them a special handwritten note.  Most importantly, I will be spending the day loving on these amazing people!

Please donate today!  Deadline is November 30th! I still need 52 Grandparents adopted to reach my goal!

 

You’re Only As Free As You Allow Yourself To Be

Free
That moment that you see the person you blocked (because they ruined your life) popping up in everyone else’s posts and you remember they aren’t actually dead… they’re only dead to you.
I’m being fairly silly here but the reality is this….WOW! I’ve really cleaned up my life. No more toxic people. It’s gotten to the point that I barely think about these people at all! The above realization is actually pretty comforting because when you set healthy boundaries for you and your family, you will begin to experience joy. REAL JOY! And that peace that surpasses all understanding? Yeah, you begin to get that too.
At first, it stings a little, because no one else seems to care that these people have left a trail of bloodied bodies behind them. Even though these people do horrific damage, others still love them and care for them. They laugh with them and act like they didn’t just spend the last 12 years making someone’s life a pure unholy hell. But the point is this, life goes on. Toxic people are incapable of being loving, yet they still require love. We all deserve to be treated kindly and if I cant do it, then its good that someone else can. Truly, we all need love and compassion.
Even though we cant ask others to stop being friendly to those who hurt us, we can ask the people closest to us for the following…
-Please don’t talk about the person in front of me until I’m ready
-Please don’t engage in behavior with that person that allows them to hurt me by way of you (i.e. liking their Passive Aggressive posts, engaging in gossip, entertaining slanderous conversations)
-Please tag the person so that I don’t see those conversations (don’t just write their name in your post)
-Please respect that I’m hurting and working on healing and forgiving
The last two and half years have been the absolute happiest of my life!!! I don’t think it’s coincidence that once I cleaned out my life and my Facebook account of toxic slanderous people, that I began to experience real Peace.
Don’t be afraid to set healthy boundaries! ITS NOT YOUR JOB TO MAKE SOMEONE ELSE HAPPY! Dont worry about caring “for” those people either. Some of you may feel bound by the obligation of caring for that abuser because you’re the only one who will. There are 7 billion people on this planet, I think there are enough people to help that person without you having to do it. You are only as free as you allow yourself to be in this regard.
I’m still working on myself and I don’t have to be torn apart for the sake of someone else’s willful disfunction and destruction. Whether these people are friends, family, acquaintances or the check-out lady at the market…free yourself if necessary. And help protect others who are being abused by avoiding being manipulated by those who would hurt them.
Thanks for all your love and support! I’ve come a long way and still have a way to go. I’ll get there ❤

You’re Not Really Gone

  
Daddy,
This Is the First Fathers Day since you’ve been gone that I’ve really felt your absence. I’ve often wondered why I don’t miss you as much as other people miss their parents that have gone. Why don’t I cry when I think of you? Why don’t I fall apart? How is it that I keep on going without tripping over my sunken heart?

Then it occurred to me. Just now. Sitting at the breakfast table, looking at the wide and beautiful Wyoming view in front of me, it occurred to me….. You’re not really gone. You’ve never really left me. All of the teaching, the fun, the discipline, the laughter and the love are inside of me. I carry you with me every day and listen to your words moment to moment.  
It was this day, Dad, that I realized that I can’t mourn a man who is still alive. Happy Father’s Day, Daddy. I love you!
With Love,

Your Punkin

P.S. I’m in good hands.

Birthday Embroidery

  

Today is my birthday and I finally got to open the gift my mom sent to me. THIS WAS INSIDE! My mother has always been the most talented needle worker I’ve ever met. She was teaching me on plastic canvas when I was 5 years old.  Cross Stitch is still my favorite thing to do (though I don’t have time right now).

About 7 or 8 years ago my mother started learning embroidery on a World Cruise she went on with my father. She is master now! This embroidered needle and sewing set is proof.

When I was in the hospital last year, she came down with projects for us to do. It was wonderful stress therapy! I’m so thankful for my mother! 

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY OF THE DAY YOU BROUGHT ME OUT INTO THE WORLD MOM! ❤

Be Mine!

The Work Crew

2015/01/img_9576.jpg

This is just a peek into my home. My kids beg me to help out with the store. The 7yo, help put item in cellophane bags and the 4yo puts logo stickers on the items. I love that they want to help O’Frizz:30 grow. They even give me great suggestions. The eldest recently requested Spider-Man stuff. That might be beyond my design skills, but I love the enthusiasm!

So, if you ever get a bag whose seal is crooked or whose sticker is upside down, just remember that its because of family love!

Easy Chicken, Potatoes, & Green Bean Bake!

2015/01/img_9550.jpg

Pinterest has dozens of people trying the Chicken Potatoes and Green Beans Recipe so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s what I did:

2015/01/img_9528-0.jpg

I thawed out 5 Chicken Breast Halves (1/2 a Breast is one serving) and put them in an olive oiled baking dish. Added 3 medium russet potatoes cubed to one side and a package of frozen green beans on the other.

2015/01/img_9529.jpg

I drizzled EVOO over everything. I recommended brushing the entire pan with EVOO before hand, but you will need more oil on top.

2015/01/img_9531.jpg

Then, I seasoned the entire dish (minus one chicken breast for the kids) with Mrs Dash Original and a bit of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. It was baked at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 40 minutes. You have to check it at 30 minutes and the breasts should be 165 degrees for safety.

2015/01/img_9541.jpg

This is how it turned out! It really is as easy as the Pinners said it would be and it’s great! It’s a very satisfying meal that fills you up but not your arteries.

As far as clean eating goes…I obviously omitted some big things from the original recipe. I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of Butter and I used herbs instead of Italian Dressing. Some may argue that Frozen Green Beans are not considered to be “clean” but in this house they are. Frozen fruits and veggies are flash frozen, preserving all of their nutrients. If you gets organic frozen…even better. Also I’m pretty sure Lawry’s Seasoned Salt isn’t considered clean, but we love it. It’s a special treat. Overall, this meal is fairly clean.

Try out yourselves! You can find lots of recipes on Pinterest or you can try this one.

Chicken , Potatoes & Green Bean Bake

3 Chicken Breasts – Halved
1 Package of Frozen Green Beans
3 Medium Potatoes – Cubed
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Mrs. Dash Original Blend (optional)
Lawry’s Seasoned Salt (optional)

1. Brush the bottom and sides of a 9x13in Baking Dish with EVOO.

2. Place the chicken down the center of the pan, the frozen green beans on one side and the potatoes on the other.

3. Drizzle potatoes, chicken and beans with EVOO.

4. Season with whatever dry spices you like. I used Mrs a Dash (salt free) and Lawry’s.

5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until center of chicken reads 165 degrees F on an instant read thermometer.

On a side note: my extremely picky 4yo, who nearly tosses his cookies at the table every meal, ate two big bites of chicken, two green beans and a bite of potato without any prompting. So, apparently its not too bad ;P
