SHE: Takes on a new adventure

Sunday, July 22, 2018

Hey friends,

How is your summer going?  Ours have gone quickly in some ways because it has been busy. But my vacation is still a week away, so it seems to be dragging along...  

So what have the SHE's been doing you might ask? Working, cooking, cleaning, raising babies, meal planning, running errands, spending time with family and friends, enjoying summer activities, travel, and of course planning our next Everything SHE Needs Market.  On top of all of this Courtney and I are taking on side gigs! Here is a quick run down.....

Brittney has been busy with Baby S but has the flexibility to take on more of our day to day SHE Degree business.  Coordinating and following up with potential vendors and working on items for goody bags.  Helping us all stay on the same page. Did you know it is possible to run a business with text messages as your only form of communication? Some weeks that is all we can squeeze in! 

Lisa is fortunate to be able to have Baby E with her a few days a week while Mom is at work. She has been a busy lady with activities, camps and classes for C & H, loving sweet Baby E and making plans to move M into her new dorm. Adding to that she has been planning our SHE Degree classes!!  Y'all we are so excited that these are coming together. They will be perfect for a new SHE or a seasoned SHE.  There will be something fun for everyone.  So plan on a few "Lisa Bennett minutes" to be coming your way soon!! Don't you love them!  She will be sharing news about the market and classes and how you can make plans to join us.

Courtney is so talented and loves to bake. I think she gets that from her Momma. She has turned her creativity into Confections by Courtney ~ homemade cakes and cookies. Y'all, these beautiful treats taste even better than they look!  She made "cows" cookies for me for a work friend who absolutely loved them! With baby showers, birthday parties and summer time fun, the demand for her yummy treats is really growing. Especially as more friends are finding out about her.  So if you are local contact Courtney for your next party or get together. These yummy treats will not disappoint!  

As for me, I have joined a skincare company, Rodan + Fields. Have you heard of it? I first tried the products a couple of years ago. Loved the way they made my skin feel ~ like velvet ladies! I love my career but know that at some point I am going to need a second act.  I am social. I love being out of the house, meeting friends, networking. Thinking about what my second act could look like I decided to jump right in as a R + F consultant. I will enjoy the benefits of these awesome products, sharing them with my friends, meet new friends and make an extra income at the same time. Ladies, I call that a win- win plan.  It's a great company that allows flexibility to work as much or as little as I want. Of course, just like anything else in life, you reap what you sow.  I would love to share the products and business information with anyone interested, just shoot me an email.

I think that catches you up a little bit. Make sure you have our next market on your calendar. There will be over 30 vendors with something for all of you. It is August 25th at Chester Frost Park in the Pavilion. It's indoors, free admission and will definitely be a fun girlfriend afternoon you don't want to miss.  Please help us spread the word by inviting your friends to join us. It's easy to do, just click on the SHARE button and invite your friends.  

We so appreciate each of you following along with us on our daily journey as we strive to be the Best SHEs we can be.  Support your friends and allow them to support you.

Hey Friends,
Hope your week is going well.  If you are one of our organized friends, you probably have completed your Mother’s Day gift shopping.  For the rest of us here are some last minute ideas to make the Moms in your life feel happy and loved on their special day.
1)      Lunch or dinner surrounded by the ones she loves most is guaranteed to put a smile on her face. Whether you decide to go out or a simply BBQ at home, the food doesn’t matter if the company is good.
2)     Flowers, Publix always has a lovely selection and prices that are lovely too.
3)     Gift certificate to her favorite salon, for a mani-pedi, or a boutique she has been wanted to visit.
4)     A homemade card melts every mom’s heart ~ as long as the giver is under the age of
Still need a little more inspiration? TJ Maxx and Target are go to stores for me.  I can always find what I am looking for (& a buggy full of things I had no idea I needed J).  If you are looking for cute clothes, home spa items like candles and bubble bath or home décor they will have you covered. And you are sure to make Mom happy with whatever you choose.
Happy Mother’s Day week to all the Mommas, Mommas to Be, Bonus Mommas and all the others who love you and yours like their own.  Celebrate them well and be sure they know how very special they are. We will be loving our 1st time Mommas this week too!

SHE says Happy Cinco de Mayo

Friday, May 4, 2018

Hey Friends,                            

Happy Cinco de Mayo!!   I admit, I thought this was a Mexican holiday similar to our 4th of July ~ celebration of independence.  I was wrong.    According to Wikipedia...
Cinco de Mayo (pronounced [ˈsiŋko ðe ˈmaʝo]; Spanish for "Fifth of May") is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. So there you go~

Although I was wrong about the reason for the celebration, I definitely am happy for any opportunity to celebrate with some yummy Mexican treats.  Do you have any plans to celebrate?  Such cute décor items I saw here would make for a festive party.  Although a little late even for Amazon Prime, I bet you can still find some cute items to set a festive theme ~ think Party City or Dollar Tree (great finds for cute disposable party ware).
This girl (like most I think) loves salsa, nothing too spicy though.  It is versatile you can serve it with chips, tacos or nachos, it’s delicious over rice. Lots of uses. It is my Mexican food of choice.
This is my favorite recipe, it’s very basic but so yummy. And you probably have the ingredients in your pantry. 
There is still time to make up a quick batch, serve it with your favorite tortilla chips and celebrate your Cinco de Mayo.

SHE Wants to be Healthy

Monday, April 9, 2018

Hey Y'all,

When the weather starts to get warmer and the days get longer I want to be outside. I love to pull out the cute summer clothes and make plans to enjoy the beautiful afternoons. This is fun until I realize I have been quite a slacker over the winter! No exercise, eating a lot of unhealthy choices.  Eek! It is a harsh reality to say the least. 

So like most of us, I decide to try to turn things around by eating better and getting some exercise. I like to walk, that is a favorite activity. So longer days and warmer temps makes that easy. Eating better is easier in the warmer months.  We do lots of grilling, fresh veggies are abundant and we tend to have lighter meals due to the warmer weather.  But y'all my true vice is sweet tea... I love sweet tea! It's a southern tradition right? And I really do not like to drink "water".  Do you?  My daughter loves water- drinks it almost exclusively. I can not do it! If I am really really thirsty, yes. But to choose water with my meal, uh no thank you, I'll have a sweet tea.

But this is not healthy. So I am going to experiment with some fruit infused waters to see if I can up my fluid intake.  Have you tried any? I have found several recipes to "detox" my system. But I really just hope to find one that tastes good.  Here are a few ideas.  These have fruit and several recommend mint leaves.  I think I will start with a strawberry water. You know nothing too crazy and then experiment from there.  ( * Just a tip, most recommend removing fruit after 12 hours as it starts to breakdown and might alter the taste.)  Another idea, was to drop bits of fruit in ice trays and fill with water. Once frozen use the ice cubes in your water for a little fruity taste.

Are you a good water drinker? Do you like fruit in yours? Mint?  What is your favorite concoction?
I would love to try your recipe combinations, so please share. I tell you, looking through all these recipes make me want to plant a little herb garden. Wouldn't that be fun to have fresh herb sprigs to add to your water? I'll be sure to share pictures this week end.

Ok, who is with me? The recommended amount of daily water  consumption is 64 ounces. That will be my long range goal. Tomorrow we start with 24 ounces. Wish me luck!
