New in March

I am trying to get ready for Anniston's arrival in every area of my life - and this includes my Scentsy business.

Like I have said before (a lot) I am so thankful for Scentsy and that it allows me to bring income into our family while remaining a SAHM. It truly is the perfect balanace for me.

I love that I'm able to set my own schedule - and now leading up having a baby I'm setting myself up for a little "maternity break", which means I'm working on getting orders now and getting parties booked! 

With that said I am booking parties for March and April, and I've been doing A LOT of online parties which have become very successful. If you have ever wanted to try and earn FREE Scentsy products please email me and we can discuss how you can do a party. I do parties for a lot of people who don't live in the same state as me, it's actually easier than it sounds! You can email me at MeganTree84{at}gmail{dot}com

This is the first month of the new catalog and it is fabulous! Full of new products and scents!

This new Buddy,  Roosevelt is adorable and proceeds from his purchase go towards the March of Dimes. He is perfect for Easter gifts this year!


The Warmer of the month is really neat this month, if you purchase the warmer below you receive another warmer FOR FREE. That means you get two warmer for the price of this one - and the one is already 10% off! It's a really good deal.


The warmer has a magnetic frame that comes off and can be replaced with any other $7 magnetic frame that Scentsy offers. So many choices!


Even frames to support your favorite college team!

 Ok last thing! I always have a lot of people email me and ask for advice on what scents they should purchase, which I LOVE helping people find their perfect scent, however this new feature on my website might be more helpful than me just shooting off my favorite scents through email. It walks you through a couple of questions to help you find a scent that might fit you. Check it out! 


As always if you have any questions about anything send me an email! And be sure and check out my website for all the new products. There are a ton of beautiful new warmers!

Three Years Later

Three years. I was in college longer than three years, I wore hideous, clunky Doc Martens, longer than three years, heck I have lots of clothes that I wear (when I'm not pregnant) that are older than three years.

In the grand scheme of things three years does not seem very long. Yet in this case, the birthday of my son, my first born, three years seems like eternity.

Haven't I known Eli forever? Hasn't he always had a piece of my heart? Or better yet hasn't he always been my heart?

Life without Eli seems distant and much longer than three years ago. The day I found out I was pregnant was one of the scariest days of my life. And the nine months after that were a whirlwind of preparation mixed with heartburn and nerves. 

I've never been a big baby person. When my sister wanted to play with baby dolls I wanted to play school and be the boss. I babysat occasionally as a teenager but more so for the money than anything, putting those kids to bed was always my favorite part of the night. I'm just not a girl who flocks to the kids and connects with them with ease.

So I had no idea what to expect those months that I was pregnant. And then in the wee morning of March 9th Eli came into this world and changed my life forever. I was rocked to the core.

With that first cry, the cry that I would come to know so well I was changed. I had no idea I was capable of so many emotions. I had no idea I could stare at something with more love than I knew what to do with, yet still wondering what I had done. What were we thinking bringing a person into this world? HOW could we possibly parent a child?

Yet, three years later we are doing it, together, one step at a time.

Every year when Eli's birthday rolls around I feel like it's a celebration of many kinds. A celebration of my baby boy, and his life. This year has been so fun because he has been so excited about his birthday, and the presents and all that fun kid stuff.

But it's also a celebration of our time as parents. As Eli grows each year and faces various obstacles and challenges and also victories that life brings we are right there with him. Facing those life situations, growing with him, figuring out how to do this parent thing, just as he figures out how to do this life thing.

This year there is a different feel in the air because we know we are on the verge of doing the whole baby thing again. On Eli's birthday we aren't just telling him "you're a big 3 year old now" but we are also exclaiming about what a great big brother he is going to be. Hoping that it sinks in somehow and the shock of a new baby in his life doesn't overtake him too much.

Yet through all the big brother talk I am reminded that he is still my baby. He will always be my first baby, the one that made me a mom. That revealed to me that I'm capable of loving somebody else so much more than I thought possible.

I can't believe it's been three years - and I have a feeling I will say that every single year on this day. Happy birthday to our sweet 3 year old, you are the joy of our lives.

{Review} The Hair Bow Company

Since our discovery in my pregnancy at sixteen weeks that we are having a little girl I have not been too quiet about how I'm a little scared.

I have a boy, I now know what goes into raising a little boy, well at least until the age of three, so far I've got that mastered.

However the thought of a little girl scares me! All the outfits and tutus and BOWS!

But I have many friends who are set to help me out and for that I am thankful.

My friends at The Hair Bow Company recently sent me a box of goodies to help me transition into this world of bows and headbands. And oh my goodness did they send me goodies.

I was so excited to open the box when I received it and when I did it was like a box of bow heaven. After going through this box I am going to be a seasoned bow mom in no times.


Obviously I don't yet have a baby girl to put these adorable bows on yet, so the pictures aren't as cute as they would be if a baby girl was in them - so I will have to post pictures after she is born but I wanted to be sure and show them off now.

First off are all the different bows:

 

Oh my goodness, Anniston is going to have a bow to match every outfit. I am really loving this smaller sized bows for right when she is born, they look like the perfect size. 

I looked at The Hair Bow Company's website before I received my box of goodies and I was most excited about these lace headbands. I love the way lace headbands look on baby girls and I can't wait to try these on Anniston. 




And then how fun are these chevron headbands? I mean, SO FUN!


You should really check out The Hair Bow Company's site. Even if you don't have a little girl these would make perfect baby shower gifts. There are SO many options: Here are some various headbands and bows that I can't wait to use. Especially those Nylon Headbands (in the top right corner) They are so soft and stretchy and will be perfect on a little newborn baby head.


 Just go browse their website, they have so much to offer, even cute little crochet hats, which Eli wanted to show off. It was a little snug on his head so we took it off before he stretched it. 
 

And because they are so awesome The Hair Bow Company is offering a special for my readers:

Happy Shopping!
