I'm a Younique Presenter!

As a college student, I needed a job that would be flexible. Something I could do while setting my own hours!  I found the greatest opportunity! Younique! Younique products are incredible (I've tried them myself)! Not only are they great quality, but they are also all-natural, gluten free, cruelty free, hypoallergenic, and carcinogen free! For someone like me, gluten in makeup products can really mess with my skin, but Younique has solved that problem for me!  If you are interested in learning more about their products or hosting a party, in your home or online, please contact me: I'd love to help you get some free products and half-priced products! That's the fun thing about hosting a Younique party, you get rewards!

Silent Auction! (Please read!)

Hi, Everybody!

I am putting together a silent auction to raise money for my volunteer trip to Russia this fall.  I am going to be teaching English to children through a program called ILP!  The date of the auction is still to be determined, because I want to make sure I can get enough donations before I set a date.  I already have 5 people who have donated, and I am hoping to get the word out!  Whether it's an actual item, a gift card, a craft from an etsy shop, or a free consultation of some sort, I'd really appreciate any donation of any kind! I currently have an hour photography session, a couple of items from friends etsy shops, a sample of a nutritional system, a vinyl gift, a box of Mary Kay goodies, and some hair services! It's really just a hodge-podge of things, so don't feel like you need to have an expensive or remarkable item to donate.  Any little bit helps! Please contact me if you want to donate, know someone who might want to donate, or have any questions: 720-224-4720. Email:       Thank you!  I really appreciate it!

Recipe: Meatballs and Tomato Sauce

I don't know what kind of magic is in the air, but lately it's been easy to cook for Kian and Ella.  Whenever I make dinner they actually eat without throwing fits about the food.  And tonight, Kian even said, "This smells good, and tastes good!"  And he ate ALL of it!  Maybe I should cook dinner every night?  Maybe...

 I wanted to share the recipe because we all really enjoyed it!  And it's pretty darn easy!

Meatballs and Tomato Sauce:

-1 pound of ground beef
- 1/3 cup of milk
- 2 slices of bread
- 1 tbs. of minced garlic
- 2 1/2 tbs. of minced onion
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbs. of parsley
- 1 tbs. of Italian Seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 3 tbs. of olive oil
- 1/4 cup of fresh tomato (diced)
- 2 tbs. of butter
- 1/4 of 28 oz. can of tomato sauce
- 1/4 cup of sour cream

1) In a small sauce pan, heat the milk.  Soak the bread in the milk, turning the slices over to absorb the milk.  Place the bread in a large bowl.  Add the meat, garlic, onion, eggs, parsley, Italian seasoning, pepper, and salt.  Using your hands, mix together the ingredients for about a minute. 

2) Using the sauce pan with the remaining milk, add the tomato sauce, tomatoes, butter, and sour cream.  If desired, add garlic and onion.  Let the sauce heat on low and stir occasionally.

3) Roll the meat mixture from the bowl into 1 1/2 in. balls.  In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium heat.  Once the pan is warm enough, add the meatballs.  Cook the meatballs on each side until you get your desired color. If you want them to be cooked through without any pink, it should take about 8-10 minutes. 

4) Once the meatballs are cooked to your liking, add the sauce and let the meatballs simmer in the sauce for a couple of minutes.  Stir occasionally to mix the meatballs and sauce properly.

5) Serve the meatballs over spaghetti or just by themselves.  Enjoy!

Recipe: Honey Baked Chicken

Let me start off by saying that it takes a miracle to get Kian and Ella to eat as much chicken as they did tonight! We didn't have a ton of ingredients to make anything fancy, so I looked up recipes that included honey and chicken.  I knew the kids would eat chicken if there was some honey on it!  I found this recipe on and it was a big hit so I thought I'd share it!  Enjoy!

Honey Baked Chicken:
-1 (2-3 pound) whole chicken or 3 chicken breasts
-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
-2 teaspoons salt
-1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
-1 egg yolk
-1 1/2 tablespoons honey (we used alfalfa)
-4 tablespoons margarine or butter

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees F

2) Rub chicken with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  In a small bowl, beat egg yolk with honey and butter, then brush the mixture over the chicken pieces.  Place chicken pieces, skin side down, in a lightly greased baking dish.

3) Bake at 325 degrees F for 45-60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the juices are clear.  Baste with the remaining butter or margarine.  Just before serving, turn chicken over and bake for 10-15 minutes to cook the skin on the other side.

*Depending on how much chicken you decide to use, you may need to bake for a bit longer than 45-60 minutes.

Why Denver has the greatest QB in the the history of the Game

Peyton Manning.

People are crazy about him.
Not only because he holds the record for most touchdown passes in a single season, or because he's arguably had the greatest sports comeback of all time.  Those facts are certainly a large reason why people love him so much, but they're not the only reason.

Let me ask you, have you ever seen a more gracious loser in the NFL?  Or a more humble winner?  Have you ever seen him throw a fit over a call or argue with a ref in anger?  Have you ever seen him not congratulate the other team and coaches after a game, regardless of if he won or lost?

I can't say enough about this man and his family.  He was brought up by parents who taught him and brothers good values and proper morals.  His father, Archie Manning, was a remarkable example of what a courteous and respectful sportsman looks like.  It's no surprise that when Peyton Manning talks about his father, he gets choked up just about every time.  I 100% believe that his good values and high standards are a major reason why he has had such a successful career.  No question about it.

Manning threw 55 touchdown passes this season.  The most by any QB.  The records that this man has broken are remarkable.  He could literally be the most stuck-up, prideful, and self-center person on this planet.  But, he chooses to be the exact opposite.  And that is why people love him.

People don't root for him just because he's insanely talented.  No, they want to see him succeed because he truly deserves it.  We, by nature, want to see the good guy win.

The second he came to Denver, the Broncos organization did a 180.  He has a presence. He has a vibe.  His teammates respect him and don't want to let him or the rest of the team down.  It is easy to listen to someone who is humble and hardworking.  This season was Manning's golden season, and yet, in every interview he did, he mentioned the team effort and not his own.  Is there a better leader in the NFL than Peyton Manning?

The answer is no.


These are the true reasons why Denver has the greatest QB in the history of football.  It's not just about the records.  It's about the fact that he has the greatest character most people have ever witnessed in a professional athlete, and I am proud to call him my quarterback.

Now, let's get that trophy.  Go Broncos!
