Happy Sunday!

Hi everyone!

So... today we got up, everybody got ready for church, and then we realized that Brayden was sick.  I volunteered to stay home with him and give him some mommy attention.  He is such a cutie!!  We took a nap, watched the Smurfs, and I made him chicken noodle soup.  He is feeling much better tonight but is pretty congested so he will probably be my little helper tomorrow and watch a lot of TV!

This was taken after he finally fell asleep for a nap.

This is me pretending that I am asleep while taking a selfie!  LOL!!  I actually just laid there and played on my phone until he fell asleep and then I snuck downstairs to get some lunch.

I have SOOOOO much to do in my office tomorrow.  I hope I get it all done!  Remember that I am announcing my new class tomorrow.  Probably around lunchtime since I need to notify my past class members first.  You might see me live on a Periscope announcing what it is!  I'm sure this class will fill up fast.  It is one of my bests so far!  (I know I say that every time!)

Big hugs to you guys!
Robyn

Saturday Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Event!

Happy Saturday my stamping friends!

I missed you guys!  Did you even know I was gone for most of the day?  lol!  I was invited to attend and give a small business talk at a local Stampin' Up! demonstrator's team meeting.  I was honored to be invited and get to know these ladies.  I love being a part of the Stampin' Up! family!  I have new friends wherever I go.  :)

So.......  I took a TON of pictures for you guys!  I got a lot of great ideas for some of my upcoming classes and made new LOCAL friends!  (Although, most live about an hour away).  Today was a great reminder of why I love what I do.  

Are you all ready for my pictures???!!!!  Here we go....

Check out the CUTEST DECOR EVER!!  These were ALL made with new stamp sets and accessories from the Occasions Catalog!  Click HERE to view catalog and HERE to order from it.  I am feeling so inspired!

I absolutely LOVE the team at Stampin' Up!  This is Shannon and she is a doll!

It was this sweet chickie's birthday today!  Happy 40th Brandy!  I hope you had a wonderful day!

These were all the girls I had the privilege of sitting with today and getting to know a little bit.  They were so AWESOME!  I tell you what, getting out of your comfort zone and making new friends is a joy!

I asked one of the girls in charge if I could bring anything to help and they asked if I could bring some samples with me from the new catalog.  It just so happened that my team just had a swap this past month with the new catalog items!  I proudly displayed my team's talents!  

Okay, I'd better get myself in bed!  It's been a LONG and FABULOUS day!  I will see you back here tomorrow for my Spiritual Sunday post!

Big hugs!
Robyn

Happy Tuesday!

Hello Everyone!

I know you are expecting a video from me today but I have to be totally honest.......  I just didn't get to a video today!  YIKES!  I was a little preoccupied with Periscope and my new live videos.  I'm sure the excitement will wear off by tomorrow in which point I will happily film a video for you.  Until then, I probably should go to bed.  :)  I will leave you with a couple of pictures....


Some of my chickens wanted to say "hi" and tell you how sorry they are that I didn't post a video for you guys today!  Their feathers are all ruffled up over it!
"I can't believe she would do this to you!"

"Tomorrow's video better be CHICKA-LICIOUS!"

Muffin wanted in on the action!
"I'm dog-gone mad about this!"

You all know how much I love you!  I'm just feeling a bit off today.  Probably because My Pink Loft is in the middle of organizing CHAOS!!  So many things on the floor that I'm tripping over!  Karlee will be here soon to make things right again!

Hugs!
Robyn

Spiritual Sunday & It's my BIRTHDAY!

Happy Robyn's Birthday Everyone!!!

LOL!!  Can you tell how much I love my birthday?!  I had a really good one this year.  Nothing extravagant but a lot of time with the ones I love.

This was me as a baby!!  You couldn't tell if I was a boy or a girl for almost 2 years!  I was so super cute!!

Not a lot has changed over the years as you will still find me on the phone with my BFF most days!

My chickens were right there to wish me a Happy Birthday this morning.  It didn't hurt that I bribed them with bread.  We also have another new egg layer!  We got 11 eggs yesterday and 8 today.  Pretty soon we will be getting 20 a day!  Bring over your empty egg cartons people!

We went to bed last night with absolutely NO snow on the ground!  It had almost completely melted off of everything.  Then we wake up to THIS today and of course, church wasn't cancelled because this is Utah and not Oklahoma!  My little boys don't think there will be school tomorrow but I had to remind them that Utah county has only had ONE snow day in the past 10 years and it was for like 4 feet of snow!  You are going to school kids!!!


Well, of course, I had to do a snow angel on my birthday!  I could hardly think of anything else the last half hour of church!  (Sorry teachers!)

I do want to share a little bit about my Sunday lessons with you guys.  Sacrament was AWESOME!  We got to hear from our Stake President, President Somerfeldt.  He is such an inspiration to me.  He talked about the parable of the 10 virgins.  Am I going to be like the 5 that were prepared to see the Savior or am I going to be like the 5 who were good people but unprepared.   I know who I want to be like but I will have to rely on the grace of my savior for all my imperfections.  

We talked about Charity and what it meant to have Charity during our last hour called Relief Society.  We went over the verses from 1 Corinthians 13..

"Charity Suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth:..."

Let's just say that I have a LOT to work on and I am thankful for the chance.  

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!  Don't forget that I am announcing the winner of the Big Shot tomorrow!!

Big hugs!!
Robyn

Super Saturday!

Hello Everyone!

Today's post is going to be SUPER QUICK!  It's been a busy day.  We had a funeral this morning, lunch out with my husband, and worked on a swap that I am in with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.  I will see you all back here tomorrow to celebrate MY BIRTHDAY and for my Spiritual Sunday post!

I had to make 39 of the same card for my demo swap but I will get back the same amount of different cards so that I will have more ideas to share with you guys!

Hugs!

Fabulous Friday!

Happy LATE Friday Everyone!

I am still blogging each and every day but sometimes it is just in my head until I can get it up on my computer!  Today's will be short as I will have another one for you later today!!  (Because we all know that it's really Saturday in which I am posting this.)

Today was a day off for me.  My husband sent me to a spa to celebrate my 43rd birthday.  This has been all I wanted for my birthday for the past 4 years.  It's easy for him and I absolutely NEED it and LOVE it!!  Nothing will ever be like Oklahoma but this spa was super nice and added candles just because I had asked if they had them.  I will go here every year from this point on.  


I was a happy camper!!


How fun to be pampered for one day of the year.  I highly recommend doing this every once in a while.  :)


My son and I drove up in the mountains a little bit to give you guys a better perspective of where I live.  If you look STRAIGHT back, I live close to those mountains.  I can't believe how beautiful Utah is!  I hope you will all add it to your places to visit someday and then let me know so I can give you a tour!  


Okay, I am signing off because you will see me again really soon!! Maybe with a surprise Saturday video, too!!!

Hugs,
Robyn
