New Venture

I have been a customer of Ava Anderson Non Toxic for the last 6 months. Placing my first order (the 6-piece skin care set), was the result of many months of research and the desire to have a safe, and gluten free skin care system at a competitive price.

I had low expectations of the products, since most "Organic", "Natural" and "Gluten free" products are over-promised, over-priced, and include unsafe ingredients, as well as don't work very well. However, upon receiving my first set of Ava Anderson products, I was hooked!

A few days ago, I decided that it was time to pursue my own business venture with Ava Anderson Non Toxic. I believe in the health message, love their products, and have shared them with so many friends already! Please help me launch my business in a few ways:

1. Place an order at www.avaandersonnontoxic.com/elizabethhood
2. Host a party (even online), and earn free product for yourself!
3. Follow me on my Ava blog at:  nontoxicbeth.blogspot.com
4. Like my facebook page "Ava Anderson Non Toxic by Elizabeth"

Love is in the Air!!!

It is the month of LOVE!  I am such a corny, lover of all holidays and especially love Valentine's day!  This year, Todd is out of town (as usual, lately!) so we are doing dinner tonight instead!  I hope everyone else didn't have the same idea to celebrate the Saturday before! 

We put each other on a $30 limit, so I added to our Tervis Tumbler collection!  They just came out with these NBA licensed Tervis' so I snagged one with the Orlando Magic logo!  Then, I filled it with Todd's favorite candies....nutter butters and Twizzler's nibs....a candy parfait ;)  I topped it off with gum, a basketball lollipop, and a basketball cookie from the amazing cookie shop across the street from us!  Here's what the final product looks like:

Happy early Valentine's Day to all of you!!!

Waiting Rooms...

I have not been blogging lately.  Foremost, because we have been so busy lately!  But, also because we are in several theoretical "waiting rooms" at the current time.  ::Sidenote:  If you haven't heard Jonny Diaz's single "Waiting Room", please download it, or look it up on YouTube - it is my current anthem!::  The last few weeks have involved some changes that have made us stand back and just take things in versus our normal "keep on moving" lifestyle!  So, as we take a deep breath, try to be at peace in our current situations, and try to enjoy the journey, I am being still and silent so that we can be sure to hear God's providence filling our life, and not that of our own doing or desire!  God is great, and has certainly blessed us!  :)

In other news, Todd and I have had the opportunity to have some great marriage-building activities lately, and we feel so lucky to be married to our best friend!  We certainly do not take this for granted, and understand many are not as lucky as us, so we are taking every opportunity to work towards a harmonious lifetime together!  Specifically, we are so thankful for our community group of awesome couples who are so uplifting and such a joy to "do" life with...so much so we are constantly intermingling with each other during the week!  Also, our church just started a new sermon series titled " Battle of the Sexes" that focuses on God's intention for the roles of women and men.  It is such a wonderful reminder as to who I should be as a wife made in God's image.  We are looking forward to the upcoming weeks' messages!

Finally, Todd and I recently returned from a wonderful weekend in Atlanta, where we welcomed a new nephew -- we are now "Uncie" Todd and Aunt Beth to 6 beautiful kids!  ...and while we were there my Mom helped me jumpstart the journey to scrapbooking our lives for the last year and a half by finally uploading the Creative Memories sbcStudio to my Mac!  Now, I just have to use it!!!  :)

Now, off to bed so I can kick off another crazy week that includes Todd traveling (again!!).....
