Five For Friday

I love linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday!  This week has been so busy, and I am glad it is finally Friday!


1. If you've been following me for a while, you know that I took a leap and moved outside of the classroom into a Instructional Facilitator role.  This has been so challenging for me and has proven to be a difficult transition.  I was beginning to think I was never going to gain my teacher's respect, trust, understanding that they could use and abuse me.  It happened this week!  I had several veteran teachers ask me to model in their room next week!!!!  SCORE!  I did 2 models this week for some of my newbies and it was awesome and I can't wait to do more next week.

2. I attended a Pampered Chef party last weekend and got the burning sensation to begin selling.  Well ladies and gentleman, I decided to take the plunge!!!!  I will be having my launch party on March 7.  I must confess I am just as nervous as I am excited!  All this is about to be mine!!!!  I'm going to be cooking up a storm!

3. Our new small groups started two weeks ago and let me just tell you, this one is GREAT!  We are doing Beth Moore's Believing God and boy is my faith being stretched and tested.  Before doing this study, I thought I had faith, but I now realize, I was just scratching the surface. 

4. One of my sweet Kindergarten teachers sells Thirty One products and gave me a free bag to show her thankfulness for helping her this year!  Shut the front door!!!!!  How awesome was that??  This is the keep it caddy in one of the new prints for this season.  Love It!

5. Lastly, this week has  been super long and ended on a not so great note.  One of my teachers has been telling me since the beginning of the year that no matter how bad things seem, I am always so optimistic and happy (are we sure she is talking about me?????) She even gave me a nickname....Rainbow Brite!  This instantly makes me feel better, even on the worst day.  Today she told me that in my job I am my own island, but my island is in their lake, and they (teachers) love me!  Who can ask for more???

That's my Five for Friday!  Head over and link up with Kacey!


  1. Awwww! It sounds like you are finally getting the validation you deserve from your peers! Such a good feeling! And I love that she calls you Rainbow Brite!! So cute!

    I LOVE pampered chef and Thirty-one! I wish I had time to sell either but I just can't put another thing on my plate!!

    Celebrate your week (or at least the ending!)
    Collaboration Cuties

    1. You are so right Amanda! The validation of a job well done is so needed! I am my own worst critic, so I don't give myself due credit.

  2. One thing that I forgot to mention in my last comment about Pampered Chef is that since I also had so many of the products, I used the stuff that I already had from the starter kit as booking bonuses. And if you ever do vendor fairs, people really like cash and carry, so stock up on items when you can get a good discount :) Good Luck!

    1. You read my mind Diane!!!! I have several things in the starter kit and planned to do exactly what you said! I will be getting advice from you :)

  3. So glad that you are beginning to hit a groove with your new position. How wonderful that you are being used effectively! YAY :)

    1. Thanks Catherine! It is such a great feeling after the way the first half the year went!

  4. Found your blog through the linky party and I adore your blog title...too cute! I haven't read Beth Moore's Believing God but think I need to from your post :)


    1. Jess, It is SO GOOD! I have had the book for years and the devotion book, but never did anything with it until this small group. It is interesting how God Works!

  5. You will absolutely LOVE Beth Moore's "Believing God." I've done several of her studies, but this one was the most powerful for me. It will definitely change the way you look at things! Love your blog!!

  6. Hi! Just found your blog through 5 for Friday - I love reading these! I'm your newest follower!
