Yep we lost the car for a few moments

My friend and I came out of the restaurant at lunch and started walking toward her car. She was like wait that's not my car the proceeds to walk past it. I was yes it is your car. She replies with I was looking for Herb's car. My reply was well we'd have a mighty far walk to his car since he's at home and 50 miles away.

And to think we both are blonde.

Who knew candles made me feel this way

Who knew that this whole sponsoring thing would make me like a kid in a candy store. Also makes me feel like its Christmas morning.

But it's so exciting. The team building, telling people about the candles and seeing orders come in.

Really it's only a candle I keep thinking. Then I think it's an awesome candle and why shouldn't I me excited. I never got this excited over ordering a phone line for a store.

This is what happens to someone who has a boyfriend and no kids.

Flecks of Gold Team

This weekend was my launch party for the new catalogs. I sent out 100 invites and 2 people showed. Now before you all sigh and say poor thing listen to what happened. One person placed a $85 order and the other one signed up. So I now have a Gold Canyon Candle team. It's great I am working on my dream. Then I also get 2 outside orders. I'm super excited. I love doing home and catalog parties and well as doing individual orders.

Until next time keep the candles burning.

Food and loosing weight

It's not easy to watch what you eat when you eat for every emotion. Yep that's me. I'll eat for every emotion and then I'll eat just to eat. Nope it doesn't fix anything or make me feel better.

I have come to realize there is no magic pill or anything magical to help me loose weight. I have to work at it. I cannot be lazy. I have to track and exercise. Then not beat myself up when I eat chocolate. Of course beating myself up would be funny to watch. I don't think I can hit myself that hard.

Wish me luck so I don't give myself a black eye.

I choose not to have kids

Yes. I chose not to have kids. They suck the life out of you. I had my niece and nephew over night a few times bd boy was I worn out. When parent s talk about their kids I only have niece and nephew stories to tell. Which to me at them time a horrifying but later I look back and laugh. If any of it was on videotape I'm sure it would be a comedy show.

Like the time I went to the grocery store my niece May of 2011. She was almost 3 (her birthday is in June) and she was singing Jingle Bells at the top of her lungs. Of course this is the same kid who didn't have to potty when we were near the restroom but half way acrossed the store. Here I am frantic trying to get a newly potty trained kid to the restroom.

Bridal party games are a pain

Yep I said it. Bridal party games are a pain. You first have to think of one. Get what you need for it. In this case it was bridal bingo. I printed the cards which I found online. Then bought all my crappy pens with me to put out for people to fill in the cards. Of course I had to not only put the opened presents back on the table I had to give out the prizes.

I never think they are fun when I'm sitting there. I'd rather be taking or eating. This time I didn't play because I'm a bridesmaid. Yep. Found a way out of the game. At least I walked off with some of the bride and grooms loot. They got some doubles so they won't notice.

There was no drama to speak of which is good. But it made for a boring shower. I'm used to something happening. But it's usually funny. Like finding a broken toaster.

Yahoo the candles are

Yep I just received my candle order. Some are of the new products and some are the breast awareness candle. Part of the profits of that candle go to help the cause. I have 5 to sell. Well 4, as I am giving one to an owner of a sushi restaurant. She was diagnose awhile ago and her and her husband are the nicest people ever.

Pictures posted are of some of the new Gold Canyon Products. Love them. The jar candles are made of a high grade food paraffin wax and have 2 safety wicks. The wicks are zinc and cotton.

Working my dream

Yes I am working my dream. My dream to have a team called Flecks of Gold. My team will be Gold Canyon Independent Fragrance Consultants. I am slowly but surely moving out of my comfort zone. It's not easy but I want to have more free time and be able to travel more.

So I will the candle lady with a team of other candle ladies called the Flecks of Gold. What could be better.

Someone should have told you

My boyfriend, his sister and I went to the Ren Faire on Saturday. The people watching is just as fun as all the shows. Some people should not wear skimpy clothes. If I don't want to see my fat rolls when I shower I definitely do not want to see yours in public.

Someone should have told you that you do not look good in the outfit. Your friends and family must not like or love you very much.

So please do us all a favor and cover up your fat rolls and stop scaring the children.

Pictures and a movie

The boyfriend and I went walking in one of the nature centers this morning. It wasn't one of our long ones since he has to work tonight. Which I'm not crazy about because then I'm sleeping alone.

When we came home I watched the movie Jack and Jill. As in a previous blog I rarely watch movies but today I did. It's probably because he was sleeping and I was bored out of my gourd. Plus I leave for a candle convention on Wednesday and it will be non stop candles for 2.5 days. I'm so excited.

Until next time keep them candles burning.

The Gold Rush of Gold Canyon Candles

This past weekend I spent in Phoenix, AZ at the Gold Canyon Candle convention. I learned so much and realized I want to really make a go of this business.

The home office really made it fun. From the gold rush casino night to the awards night to the new product launch. It may have been hot in Phoenix but none of us noticed because we were having so much learning and being motivated.

I really love the product. The candles are wonderful. I can work my own hours and schedule parties or meet with others interesting in a rewarding career of a Gold Canyon Candle Independent Fragrance Consultant.

There were a lot of great speakers from Tory Johnson and Mike Schlappi. Mike was the one that really motivated me. He was shot by a friend when he was about 15 and never walked again. His saying was "I got shot. What's your problem?". He did have his bad days but he pulled through and has a wonderful family and is a motivational speaker.

Until next time keep in mind Mike' saying when something isn't going right. I know I will.
