Happy Thanksgiving (a day early!)

I have been MIA, I know I know... story of my blog.  But this time for good reason.  I have had some health issues lately.  Nothing serious, just having gallbladder surgery on Tuesday to get it removed.  It isn't serious, right now.  But if I do let it go, it could get worse.  And I don't want to have it rupture on me.

Anyway, this isn't a boo hoo, poor me post.  I promise!

Thanksgiving is here!  Yay!  But where did 2014 go????

This year, I am thankful for living in a warmer climate!  Yup I said it, I don't like cold.  I like warm weather, sand between my toes and wearing a light jacket once a year.  I am also thankful for my family.  My kids are awesome people, well turning into them.  Don't get me wrong, they have their moments, but it is pretty cool to watch them experience the world around them.  I am also thankful for my hubby and many others who selflessly give their lives to the armed forces.  They protect our freedoms, and fight for our country.  I hope that those that aren't able to be home for the holidays know that many of us at home at praying and thinking about them and a safe return for all of our troops.  I am also thankful to be in relative good health.

I love Thanksgiving because I love to eat.  Yup, I said it...  I love to eat!  I also love the traditions my family has.  We wake up, eat some breakfast and park our buns for a few hours in front of the tv watching the Macy's Parade!  My hubby doesn't understand our obsession with it.  But whatever... I never asked him to understand it.

Anyway, we also then ate dinner early, and enjoy time with family.  Nothing exciting.  We aren't Black Friday shoppers either... or should I say Thanksgiving evening shoppers.

It is insane to me how many stores advertise their "Black Friday" sales starting on Thanksgiving!  Seriously, I feel badly for all the retails workers that have to work on Thanksgiving.  They are being taken from their time with family to work for a sale that I'm sure if no fun.

With that... I have decided this year to turn Black Friday PINK!  Yup!  Pink!  I am holding a private sale for all my customers and their families... on my website!  No crazy crowds... no pushing, no shoving, no waiting in line for HOURS on end.

Here are my specials:

PLUS, for every Timewise Repair Set purchased, you will get a FREE Skinvigorate brush (this special is good until Dec 1).  AND, for every purchase of $100 (before discount), you will get an extra 5% off.  For every purchase of $200 (before discount), you will get an extra 10% off!  So, this means if you place a $100 order at 6am, you'll get 35% off your order!  If you place a $250 order at 10:30 am, you'll get 25% off your order.  (The time stamp from my website will determine your order).  And I will adjust your total, email it to you before processing, and get your approval.  (Unfortunately, I am unable to change prices on my website, so you will notice you have a full priced total sent to you when you checkout.  Your card is not charged until I process it on my end.)*

I also am doing the Adopt-a-Grandparent program this year.  Please help me bring some joy to some very deserving, local senior citizens.  My goal is to make the holidays special for 150 people this year!  Order deadline for this is Dec 15.  The $12 set includes wrapping, and a gift tag.  (Tax is already included in that.)  Email me at lizherman (at) marykay (dot) com to purchase.*

Also, has your hubby/significant other/girlfriend/wife/boyfriend/lifepartner gotten you your pillow gift yet?  Have you gotten them their's?  Don't know what it is?  You will be the most romantic person at Christmas this year.  Ask me for more info on this fabulous gift, which starts at $25.

What are you thankful for this year????

*Must have no other consultant!
