Project Life (July 18 - July 24)

It's been a busy week as usual .. and as usual, I don't know what to say to preface this week :) 
Here's your Project Life Tuesday update, thanks for stopping by!!

Monday just got home from Texas last night so naturally I need to put my toothbrush back into the bathroom. Guess how many people we have living in this house. 6? nope. 4? nope. Three. Three people live here and we have double that number of toothbrushes. I just think it's funny, because it's always been like this growing up :) Anyone else have this issue, toothbrushes multiplying?

Tuesday  I worked on this all day! I have designed an Opportunity Meeting Invitation and made envelopes to match! I can't wait!!! :) ♥ I LOVE PREMIER! (for more information on Premier Designs Jewelry such has hosting a show or becoming a jeweler - please leave me a comment!) I LOVE MY JOB!

Wednesday -  Told ya it was a busy week .... what the heck!? I had a show. THATS what the heck :)

Thursday I hung with Maddie and Cullen for the evening... Maddie and I colored for a while Cullen was napping. She asked me "Tara, why do you think my Mommy & Daddy didn't invite ME for dinner and a movie?" .. ahh, 4 year olds .. so sweet and innocent :)

 Friday my NEW catalogs arrived - yes I was so excited I took a picture. Our new Fall Line of jewelry was just revealed and I'm SO excited about it!

 Saturday Jeff and I spent the day at the airshow .. here we are with the Blue Angels! (see them? Top right!?)
For more on our super fun day - click here! then we watched Arry Potter (Harry Potter..) for a while and PASSED OUT-  that sun really got to me.

Sunday night I just hung out with Molly and Sean. Here they are playing in the fort I made them. I found some flashlights and a sheet and this is how happy they were - awesome!!

Thunder Over Michigan - Blue Angels

Today Jeff and I headed to the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show. Here are a few pictures of the day. Today was around 80 to 90 ish with the sun beating down ... It was HOT HOT HOT. I even managed to get a sunburn the shape of my shirt. Lovely. Lucky for me, my burn will turn into a tan quickly ... but the tan will STILL BE IN THAT SHAPE! Looks like I have some "work" to do!

After the sun was hidden by some clouds, it was so much better. The Blue Angels preform every other year at the airshow and so we bought tickets to get in. If you haven't seen the Blue Angels ... they are US Navy pilots who do crazy incredible unbelievable stunts in the air .... in a formation, all together! (just like synchronized swimming ... only its WAY more impressive with jets that are flying 1000 miles per hour)

We went last year and sat on the side of a nearby road and saw the whole thing for free, but the Blue Angels weren't there. Here they are!

 Notice that they are flying at each other ...

  Notice that they are flying at each other upside down...

 Don't mess ... with the USA

Here's Jeff and I with the Blue Angels  ;)

Project Life (July 11 - July 17)

Hey everyone! If you're keeping up with my blog ... Yes  - I had a BLAST in Fort Worth this past week. I'm so blessed to work with such an amazing company!

 Monday night we went out for a girls night! Pictured: Me, Angie, Kelly and Alicia! I had a blast ... and before they left Brittani and Katelin were there too! Awesome to have a nice relaxing night out.

Tuesday I spent all day doing laundry and packing .. and un packing ... and packing ... and unpacking - I'm glad that's over!
Wednesday I got on an airplane and landed in Dallas Fort Worth! I loved it there - here's our beatiful hotel!
Thursday our Rally started (this is our annual convention .. and all the new jewelry is revealed!) It was incredible. We had awesome speakers AND we had a great time looking around "le Boutique" - AMAZING! Premier had presented all the jewelry with all kinds of ways to wear it. They even showed old jewelry / new jewelry combos! Incredible!

Friday I met Deann which meant that I had met everyone in my immediate Premier Family!  Here I am with my Premier Mom Sarah, Premier Grandma Michele (we roomed together!) and Premier Great- Grandma. We're so lucky with all the support that we get!

Saturday I walked the stage for my Crown Jewel award - AMETHYST! Here's Sarah and I just after!
Sunday I left in the afternoon so I laid at the pool almost all day! AWESOME! Then I hopped on a plane and got back around here at about 9. I had an amazing trip but I'm so glad to be home!

Here's what my album will look like ;) sort of!

Project Life (July 4 - July 10)


The first part of this week we were in California and I'm actually missing TWO pictures this week (shame on me!) but hey ... such is life.

Happy 4th of July from Angel Stadium! Anehiem, California! Tigers vs. Angel's game in California - awesome!
This flag was the size of the entire outfield once they were finished spreading it out .. it was incredible.

Tuesday Jimmy's buddies came back into town from their weekend away. They had so much alcohol left over that they couldn't bring it on base! Here it all is ... being stored for them ;)

Wednesday we flew all day ... got home and went straight to Jeff's softball game. No pics but I will do something cool with our boarding passes in the album.

Thursday I took Ella to get her hair cut at Snip It's on our day together. She was SO good and kept saying "its soooo relaxing" ... dude your four years old and hilarious.

Friday I stamped, addressed and mailed all of my invites for a show I have scheduled for the end of the month - with the help of my mom of course :) We had fun doing it and now these pretty invites will stand out in the mail!

Saturday Andy, Joann, Mason and Taelor had us over to their new house for a House Warming Party/BBQ!
Here they are as a family in front. SO cute.

Sunday - no picture can you believe this!?! Sunday we went to Ryan and Lisa's BBQ, Kohls and cleaned Jeffs room. We went swimming until midnight and he finally had to go home because he had to work the next day! (Oops  - we stayed up too late)

Project Life (June 27 - July 3)

Hey! Here I am playing catch up .. we were out of town for the 4th Of July! It was GREAT!

Monday night I babysat Maddie and Cullen last minute - awesome!! Here they are brushing their teeth before bed.

Tuesday I ran errands almost all day. I made my mom breakfast, took dad the lunch he forgot on the table, took mom to this Re|Purpose store she has been wanting to check out, went to the bank ... etc. then it was time for the POOL :)

Wednesday, our friend and my hairdresser gave me tickets to the Tigers game! She has season tickets and couldn't make it to this game and didn't want them to go to waste! We stayed until the end (loosing) and even got to see Don Kelly's first (and most likely only) Major League appearence as a PITCHER! Sweetness.

Thursday I had the pleasure of hanging out with these lovely ladies. It was my Thursday with the girls and this week we had a guest :) Chloe hung out with us we did a whole list of things: Bank, Park, The Green Store, Lunch with friends and swam  ... over all - a VERY good day!

Friday was the day we packed and got on a plane to California! *no picture*

Saturday we woke up in California and got breakfast near downtown San Clemente .. we got a personalized tour (from Jimmy) of the base and then hit the beach!

Sunday we hit the beach at sunset - I can't remember what we did specifically that day ... but it was FUN!
note: Yes - I know Jeff is back there ...

Here are a couple of extra journaling photos I'm going to include in addition to my daily pics!

I'm linking up SUPER late ... but check out the other Project Life Tuesday participants HERE
