Taking Care of Yourself is SO Important! *Posh Giveaway*

Can y'all believe it's almost 2018?!  I have really slacked off on my blogging this year.  I will be back more next year for sure!!

I have been running nonstop since October, working two businesses, several trips out of town, and of course taking care of my son and overseeing his schooling with k12.  To say it's been hectic is the understatement of the year!!

In November, on a trip to Panama City Beach for training with my Perfectly Posh business, I caught a nasty cold.  I did my best to beat it - using my vitamin C, colloidal silver, diffusing thieves oil, and taking otc medicines.  Went to the doctor, have had 3 rounds of antibiotics, and here it is 8 weeks later and I've got pneumonia!! Yikes!

Looking back, I'm seeing that I didn't take time for myself like I usually do.  I was running from one thing to the next and never slowing down. Late nights, early mornings. Boy, did that all catch up to me! Over the past week I've spent much of my time in bed.  I've caught up on my to-be-read pile of books, and watched some movies I've wanted to see.  I've organized some things for my taxes, and gotten some business supplies organized.  This is NOT how I wanted to get caught up, but my body is telling me otherwise!! This time I'm listening to it!!

I used to think self-care or pampering time was not for me! I have taken a nightly bubble bath with a good book for the past 15 years and that was the extent of "me time". Sometimes I felt guilty doing that.  Last Fall I discovered Perfectly Posh and learned how important that "me time" is. I started using our face masks, skincare products, lip stains, cremes and more to take care of myself.  Starting this business has helped my confidence soar, I've built a team and a business with Posh and contributed to our household income. I love working with a company that makes all of our products in the USA, does no animal testing, and uses naturally-based ingredients. It's been busy but wonderful, and I never expected to have a team of 10 awesome girls selling with me in just a year!!  All great things, but then I got busy and forgot how important taking care of myself is. I know this lack of self care contributed to my getting rundown and sick.

So for 2018 my only resolution is to once again, take time for myself every day.  It makes me a better mom, a better person, a better me!  I want you to try to do this too!! Posh pampers you, because you deserve it!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to pamper with Posh.

FACE MASKS!! I love and adore our face masks!! This is my current fave - Love You Snow Much - an Oxygen Bubbling face mask that smells like peppermint and feels like little elves dancing on your face!! I love how it keeps bubbling the longer you leave it on.  My skin feels tight and clean when I wash it off!  Several of our masks are on sale too - click Face Masks under the Collections tab on my website.

Get your bubbling face mask here! This is a limited time, seasonal product so it won't be around much longer!

Our Rubby Scrubby foot stick is so pampering!! It's like a pedicure in a stick!  Shea butter is moisturizing, and sugar beads are scrubby, so feet are left soft and pretty.  Mint, rosemary and thyme give this a wonderfully spa-like scent. I use this several times a week in the bath to keep my feet soft and smooth.  It's retiring, so it's on sale through NYE and going away soon - get yours here!

I haven't really taken a lot of care with anti-aging products over the years, and now I'm in my late 40's and worrying!! Prize on the Eyes is my must-have cream every day.  Within minutes my eye area looks tighter and the little wrinkles are lessened.  I like to use it on my eye lids, too, for a makeup primer.  A teeny bit goes a long way - I've been using the same tube since the end of August!
You can find it here.

Winter has arrived here in Georgia - the cold weather makes my skin dry and itchy every year! This year I have a secret weapon - Posh's Fresh Creamy Milk Body Butter! It's thick, luxurious, and has a fresh, light scent.  My skin drinks it up and stays moisturized for hours.

Yep, This body butter is a MUST for winter!!

There are so many more products I want to share, but this is a good start! Let me help you kick off 2018 with pampering for YOU!!  Posh is having a big sale on some retiring products and free shipping on orders $75 or more through tomorrow night, so please check it out!! And make sure you sign up for a FREE perks account - you'll earn 10% back in perks to use on future purchases!!

Giveaway: 9/11 Film Charlie Sheen Autographed Poster/Gift Pack #Remember911

Everyone has a 9/11 story.  No matter who you are, or where you were, that moment and the aftermath is indelibly etched in everyone's mind. The thing I remember most about being at work that day, besides the obvious, is that our Senior Adults were in for their weekly group which helped get our newsletters in the mail. We noticed that they were all so calm as they worked. Unlike all the rest of us - we were frantically calling family, some of us were crying, all of us praying.  We realized that they were calm because they had LIVED through this before.  They had Pearl Harbor!  So to them, this was tragic, but not unknown. To us, it was unbelievable that terrorists had come to America and done this!
I also remember waking up the next morning - when I opened my eyes I thought, oh my gosh, what an awful nightmare.  Seconds later, I remembered it wasn't a dream at all - it was our new reality. Share your 9/11 memories in the comments below, if you'd like.

This week a new film opens about 9/11 - watch the trailer here:

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).

In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.

Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.  Find out more about the movie here.

I am giving away a #Remember9/11 Gift Pack that includes a signed poster from Charlie Sheen, a parent's resource guide and a Hope necklace.  Click the Rafflecopter widget below to enter the giveaway!

Giveaway: Nichole Nordeman's Every Mile Mattered CD #EveryMileMattered #flyby

Hey y'all!! Summer is about over, so I'll be back to blogging regularly soon! Lots of reviews to share, so keep an eye out for new posts!

In the meantime, here's a great giveaway for the fabulous new CD from Nichole Nordeman.

I received her new CD, Every Mile Mattered, about a week ago, and I've really enjoyed listening to these gorgeous songs. I've been a fan of Nichole's since I got her album Woven & Spun about 15 years ago. "Legacy" is one of my favorite songs ever! She has a sweet, ethereal voice that brings her lyrics to life. Some of them really get to you! If you haven't heard "Slow Down", ya go, I can wait! (Grab some tissues first!)

See why I was thrilled to have the opportunity to check out Nichole's newest album, Every Mile Mattered?  She is such a talented singer!  The title song is breathtaking (and my favorite).  Here is the official video so you can have a listen:

The rest of the songs on her CD are just as good.  I really liked "Lean", "Dear Me", and "You're Here".  I played them over and over in my car - this is one I'll be playing for years!  I enjoy listening to worship and praise music while out and about, and this CD is totally a keeper!!

You can find Every Mile Mattered on iTunes and Spotify  online.

Nichole has a great website, with a free newsletter you can sign up for.  You can listen to some of her songs on there, find out tour dates, and learn about the new book she has coming out later this month! (Which you can pre-order here)

I have a copy of this wonderful CD to give away to one of my readers.  Enter via my rafflecopter widget below.

I always love when you share my posts with the social media buttons on here, too - thanks in advance, and good luck!

Mandisa #OutOfTheDark CD Giveaway #FlyBy

Hey guys!  I had to take some time off from blogging - it's been a very busy few months here. But I am back with a fantastic giveaway for you.

Have you heard the new song from Mandisa called "Unfinished"?  It's getting lots of airplay here in Atlanta. Super catchy, but also very inspiring.  My son and I saw her on tour with Toby Mac and others back in March, and she talked a little about how this album came to be,  and then sang this new song.

Mandisa wrote her song “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world.

Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today… but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called 'Out Of The Dark' because that is exactly where God lifted her out of!

You can watch her talk openly about this on Good Morning America by clicking here.

Mandisa shares the story behind the album:

I've been such a fan of Mandisa ever since I watched her on American Idol. She is a beautiful, confident woman - and what a voice!  "Overcomer" is one of my favorite songs ever, and "Good Morning" is my ringtone!   Both are such encouraging, happy songs. I believe you'll agree that this CD is full of awesome encouragement, too - It's what Mandisa does best! These are honest, touching songs and they will inspire and revitalize you.  I was able to listen to this on a recent road trip and before I knew it, I was singing along!  It's a great album!

You can buy "Out of the Dark' by clicking here .  It's also available on Amazon.

I'm thrilled that I get to give away a copy of this CD to one of you! Just enter through my Rafflecopter widget below.  Good luck and thanks for entering!

Check out Medieval Times ATL for Spring Break! #MTFan #MedievalTimesAtlanta

We were able to visit Medieval Times Atlanta on Sunday night for a wonderful show and delicious dinner!  We're so lucky to have Medieval Times here in metro Atlanta - it's a great place for a fun family night out, or to celebrate events or groups!

Haven't been to Medieval Times yet? Oh my goodness!! You need to go!! We like to arrive about 30 minutes before the show starts. When you arrive you'll get cards showing your color for the evening, and crowns for everyone to wear.  You can get your picture taken with the King and Princess, and enjoy drinks for the whole family at the bar.  Then they begin seating guests.  VIP's get first seats - you can upgrade your dinner ticket to several package options.   We were seated after the VIPs, and found we were in the center, red and gold section.  We enjoyed cheering for our knight! It was a great night - ours won the tournament, too!

Our server was so much fun.  Her name was Chelsea and she was a hoot! She started out by filling our drinks.  You choose from Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Sweet Tea, Unsweet Tea or Water.  (Or you can order a drink from the bar!)  Then she served us soup, followed by garlic bread, roasted chicken, potatoes and corn on the cob.  Dessert was a lemon poundcake, served with coffee.   If your family doesn't like eating with their hands, be sure to pack some plastic cutlery!! And don't forget to tip your server appropriately- they work hard taking care of guests during the show!  You'll have the chance to purchase your photo with the King, plus banners, light up swords and such, and banners while you eat dinner.

A toast from the King!

The show was spectacular, as always! The knights put on quite a show.  The horses are beautiful and magnificent to watch.  The Falcon was awesome too.  My 13 year old always loves visiting Medieval Times because of the adventurous, action-packed show the knights provide!  Despite the fact that he's been several times before, he's always amazed by the skill shown by the knights as they joust and sword fight.   It's fun for kids of all ages, and parents will be entertained, as well.

We had several younger kids seated around on this visit, and it was so much fun to watch them enjoying the show for the first time - the wonder and joy in their eyes is wonderful to behold!  Hang out after the show and you can meet the knights, get photos with them, and they'll even sign your crown or banner!

There's a great gift shop you can check out before or after the show, too.  Lots of fun souveniers to choose from.

Are you planning to stay in town for Spring Break?  Medieval Times would love to have you and your family join them for dinner and a show in the Castle!  They are offering discounted tickets to my readers - You can get Adult tickets for $37.95, and Kids & Students get in for $29.95 with code SB17BLOG.

Visit their site  to get your tickets now, and enjoy Spring Break at Medieval Times Atlanta!

Have you been to Medieval Times before?  What did you think? Leave a comment below this post and let us know your thoughts!

We were hosted by Medieval Times for dinner - no other compensation was received.  All opinions in this review are my own!
