What is Plexus and Why Do I Encourage People To Try It?


What is Plexus? I get asked this all of the time. Plexus is a health and wellness company that focuses on getting your body healthy from the inside out with plant based products. I usually recommend starting on the TriPlex combo but am now adding X Factor. Plexus TriPlex helps remove harmful substances from your body, replenishes the gut, and rebalances your body. X Factor is our wonderful multivitamin with Aloe. I just listened to a naturopath share her experience with XFactor and am ordering some ASAP for my youngest son. Here is the link to her story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJHiRMUaW4E&app=desktop

Why do I think you should try it? Do you feel tired? Are you sick to your stomach often? Hurt everywhere? Feel like you're missing out in life because you just don't feel good? Do you just want to feel better so you can participate in life more fully?  I was all of those things and after about three months using Plexus I started to feel better. I've been using it almost two years now and I feel better than I did when I was 30. I think that's pretty good since I just turned 54!

It is amazing what can happen when you have a healthy gut!

Little Things



For several years my husband has been wanting to put up a little storage shed. We have a one car garage and once you get 4 bicycles, a lawnmower and lots of other kid toys in, there isn't much room to move around if you pull the car in too. In the winter months it gets pretty hard to work in there. I don't know why it took so long but we finally decided to invest in a shed. We waited until Menards had their 11% rebate sale and took advantage of it because the savings in the rebate made up for the delivery fee. 
The boys were ecstatic! This is a project that they got to do with their dad and they couldn't wait to get started. Last week they finished it up and this weekend they painted it to match the house. I think it looks great and hubby is thrilled to get some room to work in the garage. 

Now if we could just get the grass to grow...

One picture!


I must really be slacking. I only took a couple of pictures on Easter and this is the only one that turned out. This is my grandson and his little sister peeking out behind him wearing the bunny ears we got for them. I thought they looked pretty cute!

We had a birthday party for these two on Friday. They are now 3 and 2! 

Saturday we had a quiet day. I went shopping and bought some new clothes for the boys who are literally outgrowing everything. I hope they stop pretty soon!

Hubby was sick all weekend so he was pretty much a non-player in the festivities. Thankfully he's feeling better today.

Our local school is still on Easter Break so I decided we'd take the day off too. Aaahh! What a nice feeling!

What did you do this weekend?

Some links of things I am loving right now...


These flag designs are from Lisa BonJeans site. Aren't they fun?



A few years ago I bought a book called Sew Serendipity and love the designs in it. The other day I came across the authors website and I fell in love with these two patterns. I would love to have this dress to wear on a hot summer day! Don't you just love the little bits of polka dot trim around the neck, sleeves and hem?
Here is the same pattern in different fabrics. Love it!

I'm not getting much done today. I should be cleaning house but instead I'm tidying my office and watching YouTube videos of  The Great British Sewing Bee. What are you doing today?

Happy Birthday To Me!!


Hey everyone! It's my birthday and thanks to my Plexus TriPlex I feel younger than I did 20 years ago! It's like I'm turning back the clock! To top it off Plexus sent my paycheck two days early. Happy Birthday to me!

I'm so excited I want to share my birthday blessings to you. So just for today I'm giving a special gift to anyone who joins my team as an ambassador. If you've been thinking about it today is the day!

Thursday Tidbits

I haven't taken time in awhile to just chat about life. Why? Well, my life isn't exactly that interesting. It is to me, but it's not much to write about. But I wanted to share a little bit about what's rattling around in my head. 

Spring- and all that comes with it. We're planting seedlings and the hubby and boys are building a storage shed in the back yard. The grass is greening up and my perennials are peeking out of the ground. I'm always a bit hesitant to start clearing the dead stuff off of my flower beds because it's not uncommon to get snow into May so I like to protect them for a bit longer. But it's nice to hear the birds singing in the morning and the occasional rain dripping off the roof. We have decided to change up what we plant in the garden this year. Going a bit more basic but wanting to get the pantry restocked. We didn't run out of anything this year but it was closer than we like. 

School- We are nearing the end of the year. I told Preston the other day that if he was diligent than he could finish his Math by the end of April. That will be nice for both of us. (smile) It's been a challenging year for us. I think we are all looking forward to a break. We are praying about changing things up in the fall, maybe an online program for Preston or starting a co-op in our community or even the possibility of sending them to public school, but I'm not sure I really want to do that. Maybe it's time to look harder for more options. 

Work- Hubby has been really stressed by work lately. There have been quite a few equipment breakdowns and he's feeling pressure to get it all working smoothly but the equipment is not cooperating. He has always been pretty good about leaving his work at work, but lately it seems to follow him wherever he goes. Maybe he's ready for a vacation too.

Well, it's time to get the boys back on task and then see if I can get a few things scratched off of my to-do list. I am looking around my office and seeing that I have been slack in keeping things tidy. Time to get busy!

Happy Thursday Everyone!
