Interesting phone call!

The manager from The incident at The Cheesecake Factory called me to "apologize" for us having such a horrible dinning experience. (ok so I may have sent a little email when we got home)

He says that they have taken care of the situation promptly at 6am this morning and had contractors come in to clean all the gum off from under the tables. This has also been discussed in detail with all the managers and "gum removal will be added to daily side work"

He apologized that this was an over site on their behalf because cleanliness blah, blah, blah. He went on for some time.

Its still gross and disgusting that this happened. I had also added the restrooms to my email because they were pretty gross and disgusting too. And he says they pulled the log for that day because restrooms are to be cleaned every 15 minutes and it was not complete and he was very sorry blah, blah.

So he is sending us something in the mail "to make up" for the over site on the restaurants behalf and would like us to come back ,and when we do to call ahead so he can make sure we have the best server and service the cheesecake factory has to offer.

Umm some how for me this is not going to do it? I mean I will certainly use my gift card, or whatever he is sending but you have to know the first thing I am going to do is look under the table!!

SO the hubby and I had date day today.. It was a lot of fun. To start the day we went to see that new movie "Fighting"

TERRIBLE MOVIE!! And that is being REALLY forgiving. It was bad. Even with hot men with riped bodies it was so bad. I spent half the movie laughing out loud at the terrible acting and silly plot. I am usually not picky about movies.

This one was B.A.D.

The hubby decided I needed my tires rotated and oil changed (get your head outta the gutters) so we dropped off the car and headed to The Cheesecake Factory. One of my favorite places to eat. I think its more for the Cheesecake then anything.

So we are eating lunch and I go to move my napkin up to my mouth and ITS STUCK!! ITS STUCK TO ALL THE GUM THAT WAS UNDER THE TABLE!!!

EWWWW so gross!!! I tried to take a picture for y'all so you could see all the grossness that I am speaking of. It was disgusting!! BARF!

(not our actual table)

And the server did not make any apologies. Just a new napkin.

My new business!!!

So y'all have been waiting to here about what I was up to? Well I am happy to report I have become an independent consultant for Arbonne International!!!

And I could not be more EXCITED!!! Everything the company offers, the products, the fact that "I" get to help people achieve their own financial freedom.

It continues to surprise me and to excite me. The support. The training. The most amazing women that I have met. The opportunity to build my OWN business. In my own time. (which lets be honest will be pretty darn quick, I qualified for district manager after 2 WEEKS!!!)

The trip to Vegas is done every year by Arbonne. It was called NTC which is Arbonne's National Training Conference. It was 3 days packed full of training. Seminars. Product knowledge and New Product launch. David Cassidy and David Cook both preformed at our closing ceremonies.

Just to give you a look at 9000 of my closest friends!!

In front of the main stage. This week taught me so much!!

I am so excited to get going!!!! I actually attending a training tonight and Valerie Edwards who is one of our National Vice Presidents says she makes more money in a single month than some with a masters degree makes in a WHOLE YEAR!!

Hard to believe? Its public information on the Arbonne site. You MAKE AS MUCH AS YOU WANT!!! Now I am not going to lie. Its going to be hard work and there are no get rich quick gimmicks. The company really sets you up for success, your welcome pac comes with EVERYTHING you need to start your business!

Arbonne has been around for 29 years. They have AMAZING health and wellness products specializing in Anti aging skin care. I challege you to google "Network Marketing"

All I need is you!!

So what does this mean to my faith full blog readers!!!

GIVEAWAY!!!! So I am putting together a FABULOUS basket of fun skincare and health care stuff and I will be giving away a package next month!! I know y'all love free stuff so I will have to be creative on how I give it all away!! My FAVORITE products is the RE9 line.

Have you heard of Arbonne? If you would like to hear about the business opportunity or just to order product. Any questions? Good or bad feedback?

The Red Hat Ladies...

So umm have you ever heard of them? The red hat society this is how they got started

While visiting a friend in Tucson several years ago, Sue Ellen impulsively bought a bright red fedora at a thrift shop, for no other reason than that it was cheap and, she thought, quite dashing. A year or two later she read the poem "Warning" by Jenny Joseph, which depicts an older woman in purple clothing with a red hat. Sue Ellen felt an immediate kinship with Ms. Joseph. She decided that her birthday gift to her dear friend, Linda Murphy, would be a vintage red hat and a copy of the poem. She has always enjoyed whimsical decorating ideas, so she thought the hat would look nice hanging on a hook next to the framed poem. Linda got so much enjoyment out of the hat and the poem that Sue Ellen gave the same gift to another friend, then another, then another.

One day it occurred to these friends that they were becoming a sort of "Red Hat Society" and that perhaps they should go out to tea... in full regalia. They decided they would find purple dresses which didn't go with their red hats to complete the poem's image.

The tea was a smashing success.

Soon, each of them thought of another woman or two she wanted to include, and they bought more red hats. Their group swelled to 18, and they began to encourage other interested people to start their own chapters (18 women don't fit well around a tea table). One of their members passed along the idea to a friend of hers in Florida, and their first "sibling" group was born.

Sue Ellen's fondest hope is that these societies will proliferate far and wide. We have now held three successful Red Hat Society conventions entire hotels filled with women of a certain age wearing red hats and purple outfits! Could world domination be far behind?

Well I JOINED!!! These ladies come in once in a while to my restaurant, and they are all so fun and full of life and they asked me to join!!

Well seeing how you have to be 50 and well obviously I am not, I am required to wear a pink hat and lavender clothing as opposed to the red hat and royal purple..

I had my first lunch on Wednesday and it was SOOO FUN!!

Ready to go!!

This was one of my ladies I had made a connection with at lunch. She is 8o years old next month so I am going to send her some flowers!! She used to be a professional figure skater...

The other pink hat you see is a friend from work...

A reflection of ones character...

So y'all know since the move I have been working full time in "the restaurant" until I can find another full time job.

Well the job hunt is not going so well. So I started my own business. And its taking up a bunch of my time BUT I AM SO EXCITED!!! I will share detail soon I promise!

So anyways I am a firm believer that you get what you put out. I mean I believe in Karma, and if you are a good person good things will come to you.

I have a pretty funny story to share.

Generally I try to be a good person. Help people when they need it. Volunteer. Work hard and ask for nothing in return.

Something happened tonight that made be question someones character. Generally I would say I am a good judge of character.

Anywhooo heres my story: We have side work at nigh to close down the restaurant. Its stuff like, stocking and breaking stuff down to be ready and clean for the morning shift.

Well I was busy cleaning and doing my side work while a co-worker was watching. I thought it strange but she just made conversation and I did my job.

Well turns out I was doing HER SIDE WORK!! AND SHE DID NOT SAY A WORD TO ME!!! It was funny because when I realized my error I went to her and said "You let me do all of your sidework while you watched and you did not say ANYTHING??"

She looked away and would not say anything. She could not look me in the face. No even a smile or a thank you or anything!.... So I went about and did the actual side work I was supposed to do (adding 15 minutes to my time at work)

And I laughed it off.. But it certainly makes me think different of this person...
