ok.... I know I have been slacking :)

I know... I know.... I have been slcaking with the blog :)

My thoughts have been preoccupied.... seeing doctors and some personal issues - my focus has been a little all over the place. 

My team has been continuing to grow - which is awesome!!  Some people are really starting to shine and grow their own teams :)  April is a whole new month with all new possibilities... :)  I also find out in a day or so who wins the kitchen-aid!!  Can't wait - fingers-crossed.

So some news....  I have some new giveaways going up - one in Canada.  I have a Quarter Auction in May as well as party booked  in May as well.  I might have some other events coming up a well.  We shall see - I am trying to get everything organized...  The first week of April is gonna have everything on hold due to family visiting from CA and I will be in NYC for a few days - can't wait!!

But after that - I am going to regroup and start planning for the Spring/Summer!! 

OH! I made the DYB? Rice Pilaf the other night... AMAZING!  I love it - my boyfriend loved it too!  It is sooo tasty and has great flavor and texture!  I can't wait to get more! I got some more of the rice meals and can't wait to make them too!!

More updates coming soon!

Lots of new products!

Well, I got a lot of new products in the mail this week!  Dipping oils, cheese ball mixes, dips, snickerdoodles, raspberry delights, chocolate banana slices and more!  I can't wait to try them!  Unfortunately, my wisdom teeth are acting up again and I cannot chew :(  Worst timing ever!  I ever got my Crunch Crunch mix back in and can't even eat that! Ugh.... guess I will be calling the dentist tomorrow.

Well, we had some new people join the team this week!  3 total :)  Some people on my team are starting to grow their own teams!  That is exciting - it is fun to watch everything grow.  I am so happy I joined back in October :)

Well, I have another giveaway up and 2 more are going to be going up in the next few weeks.  One website is Canadian, so that is exciting.... I would really like to get some Canadian people on the team!

Here is the giveaway if you wanna check it out!

I have some more goodie bags going out as well.... I have not seen too much from that.  But, I will try some more - you never know.  I have a few people on the fence looking to join... fingers crossed.

Well, Ijust wanted to stop in and say a little hello.... Probably gonna go to sleep early.  My mouth is throbbing.  Start another class tomorrow too!

I am back.... well I actually never left :(

Yes.... I am back to writing on my blog... and earlier than expected.  I am sad (and frustrated) to say that I was not able to go to my military training.  I went to the doctor last week for some problems I have been having and he recommended that I wait on training and get some tests done... UGH!  I have to get a CT scan next week and see a specialist at the end of the month.  Needless to say, I was pretty bummed :(  Once again, I have to put my life on hold.... but at least I have Do You Bake?  So, I just delved back into it!

I just ordered some of the new products - can't wait to try them.  Also, it was announced last week that we are going to be carrying a line of Salad Creations.  YUM!  The are going to start rolling out in April.... I can't wait, they sound delicious!

I have a new Giveaway up and running....

I am also going to be in a Mother's Day gift guide... I will post the link once it goes live.  Hopefully that will generate some sales.  It is the same company that I do the goodie bags with.  So far, I haven't seen much from the goodie bags. :(  I guess time will tell. 

I had a new consultant join my team today :)  Welcome Amber from SD - wooohoooo!  She is super excited to get started.

I am soooooo ready for the warm weather.  I started planning some events and parties for the spring months.  I am so over winter....  I really just want to wear a summer dress and flip flops :) 

Well, I am going to get some things done here and then hit the hay - Don't forget Daylight Savings tonight - we lose an hour.... boooo

Until next time my friends :)

New Reviews... New Consultant :)

Well... another week. :)

I had a review as as well as a review/giveaway go up this week!  See Below...


Review & Giveaway

I also had a new consultant join this week! WooHoo - Debra from Brewer, ME :) - Welcome to the Team!!

I made the DYB Peanut Butter Cookies this week - Sooooo Yummy! :) 

Just trying to stay positive... I leave next week so the rest of this month should be interesting....  I really hope the weather gets warmer... I do not do well running miles in the cold air :)  I have drill this weekend then we shall see how the week goes.... I am hoping to write one more time before I leave....  Then I will be back on track after the end of March :) 

BTW... I just made some pasta but I added Thyme to the pasta water and once it was done, I tossed the pasta with DYB? Garlic Seasoning with some Olive Oil - I tell you - there is nothing that DYB? Garlic Seasoning can't improve! LOL

Well until next time :)  Happy Baking everyone!

BYW - not sure if I posted this... but we have a new catalog out - it is posted on the main page of the website - Lots of great new products :) Check it out!

Another week....

It is sometimes amazing how fast a week can go by!  I can't believe that I haven't written all week!  I have been trying to get my new schedule down.... I returned to work for LiveOps, so I have been putting in a lot of hours with them.... until I find a FT job, they really are the best option for me (as an additional PT job) ... I mean working in my PJs is pretty nice :)  So, I am hoping to get back into the swing of things this week and then I will have to take a step back until the end of March since I will be away for training. 

So new this week!  We did have another consultant join the team!  Welcome Michelle from MO :) 

The party, I was supposed to have this weekend was postponed :(  Due to an unfortunate event - but, I am hoping to reschedule for April :)

Oh - I made the Chocolate & Chips Beer Bread this week and used Dr. Pepper!  YUM! I also made a Meat Baked Ziti - but I used the DYB? Meatball Seasoning to flavor the meat and it was so good!  Tonight, I am making Braised Short Ribs with Garlic Egg Noodles (using the DYB? Garlic Mashed Potato Seasoning).  Sooooo good!  I can't wait to order all of the new products in March - I am very excited :)

I booked 2 charity events for May and December and I have 2 or 3 giveaways starting up in the next 2-3 weeks - Once they go live, I will post the details.

So.... I just wanted to give a little update - hopefully more to come this week!!

Busy..... as usual :)

Well unfortunately, I was not able to go to the Quarter Auction this past Friday.... just a decision I had to make.  But, there will be others.  I am trying to get so much organized.... these next few weeks will be crazy. :)

Oh, but some good news!! I have had over 1000 people visit my blog since it has started :) woohoo

I got some great new about some new products that Do You Bake? is releasing  in March - I am super excited!!  And can't wait to try them :) YUM!! Pictures will be posted.... :)

I have a party this Friday... so that should be great.  Not sure how many people are attending yet.  Then, I am not sure how this happened, but the event I scheduled falls on my Drill Weekend in March!! .... ugh - so I am trying to figure that out as well.  Not if, I mentioned this, but I will be going away for about 2.5 weeks in March for the Army.  I have a Leadership Course to take.... so I am also trying to increase my workouts to prep.  Which with school and my two jobs - is keeping me very busy.

I am so excited for Spring and Summer!  I was away training in the Army all spring and summer of last year... so I am excited to be home. :)  I think that there will be a lot of events and I am much better in warmer weather.... my mood completely changes and I am much more motivated :)

So, I just wanted to post a little update since I haven't written all week :)

Until next time!

Another successful party!

What a great night we had!  The party was great :)  A great turn out and lots of new orders and new customers.  I am hoping to get involved with a fundraiser for a school as well :)  Pictures will be posted on FB @ The Roaming Cupcake. So with the party order I submitted yesterday, I WON!! Hooray! I wona Digital Video Camera from Do You Bake? :)  I was soooo excited since I never win anything... Can't wait to get it.....

The Pink Champagne Cupcakes were a hit!  They are soooo yummy and light. 

Also, we had 2 consultants join the team this week! :) Congrats to Lisa for a great job recruiting!

This Friday, I will be at a quarter auction - should be fun, I do love going to those :) I hope to see some friendly faces there as well.  Atleast, I know that horrid vendor (my nemesis, lol) is not going to be there since she was banned (haha)
