Fall Camping

A couple months ago my daughter and I joined the rest of my extended family for a weekend camp out.  My brother's significant other lives on this big beautiful farm where they've created a perfect family campground. It was so relaxing and we turned our weekend into a crafting extravaganza.  Here are some photos.

Have You Heard of Jockey Person to Person?

I recently learned of this clothing company.  You've heard of the Jockey underwear, right?  Well, Jockey Person to Person is part of that company.  It is sold through consultants who come to your home either for a party or a one on one shopping experience in the comfort of your own home.

I met Gail Schmidt here in Minnesota who has been with Jockey Person to Person for three years.
Gail introduced me to this clothing line and when she said it was comfort clothing, well let's just say I was interested.  As of my nature lately, I jumped in and said.  Let me host a party.

That party took place this past Wednesday night.  Okay, I'll admit it.  The morning of the party I thought to myself what have I gone and done now?  As if I don't already have enough things on my plate.  (I went camping with my daughter on the weekend, got myself out of a new part-time job - whew! That was close, and released my novel "Do Over" on Amazon. 

Fortunately for me, my sister Val came over that afternoon and helped me spruce up my house for
my party guests.  (I'm telling you, have a party as it forces you to get those things that you never have time to do, done.) Thanks Val.

Anyways back on topic:  Jockey to Jockey.  Gail the clothing consultant was really great.  Knowledgeable about the clothing, the styles that look best on your body type.  How to make the most outfits out of the fewest pieces.  It was great!

Plus, as the hostess I bought some really nice, quality clothing at a discounted price.  Here's what I'm getting.

Active Reversible Tank with a Active Skort.
(Black) Modern Bootleg Pant

(Black) Modern Capri
High Collar Zip Jacket (Black)
Zip Front Cardigan (Sapphire)
(Magenta) Cardigan
Dolman Sweater (in Black for my Daughter)
And, this cute LBD (mine is in black.)
Plus, a Hoodie Zipper Jacket in Blue.  I wasn't
able to find a picture of it as it was from the past season spring line.
10 Pieces of clothing + my hostess discount.  I bought all these
clothes for under $24.00 dollars each.
What a great deal.  I can't wait.
If you want to check them out for yourself here's

Or, find a consultant near you and have a party!

My Book "Do Over" is Available on Amazon - Yippee!

Follow Me on Pinterest

I chose to self-publish my book on Amazon and make it available as
a Kindle novel.  In a few months I may have it also available in print form.
This has been a very exciting experience and I feel very fortunate to be alive
in a time when a writer can get their words out into the world so easily.
Working with Amazon was very simple.  The hardest thing for
me to figure out was how to get my formatting to work correctly. 
I thank you in advance for
your support on helping me accomplish one of my life long dreams.
If you would like to learn more about self publishing. I recommend taking the wonderful webinar by
Denise Wakeman called, From Blog to Kindle.
You really do have the power to make your dreams come true.
Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage,  just literally
twenty seconds of just embarrasing bravery and I promise you, something great will
come of it.
Matt Damon's words in the movie "We Bought a Zoo."
Thanks everyone.
