Jamberry Independent Consultant

Well, I liked the product and had so much fun with my Jamberry Nails, that I decided to become a Consultant.  There's just tooooo much that I loved in the catalog.  So now, I get paid for doing my nails!

Check out my Jamberry Independent Consultant site and follow me on Facebook and Google+

Thanks for giving me this opportunity, Carin!  I've been having fun setting up parties for friends.

Jamberry Nails Online Party

Attn: Ladies!!!  I'm having a ‪#‎JamberryNails‬ party and you're invited! No need to dress up or squeeze it in your calendar because it's all online. Come join the fun with me and Carin Ponder now through November 16. Start your Christmas shopping - for your friends and family...or yourself.

This party is online and runs until 11/16/14 @11:59pm! Stop by often as we'll be playing games for points for a free sheet of wraps! Jamberry Nails is a nail wrap that is applied with heat from your hair dryer or other small heat source. Applied to clean nails, these wraps can last for up to 2 weeks on fingers and 6 weeks on toes. Each sheet of wraps is $15 and can do 2-3 applications. They come in more colors and patterns than I can possibly list, so please check out my party at:

Holiday Eats

Can you believe that October is almost over?!  We'll be deep in the warm comfort foods soon and gearing up for turkey season.  If you're like me, there's family dinners, dinners at work, dinners at church, etc.  Did you know that many of your favorite mixes from The Gourmet Cupboard come in larger, more economical sizes?

Instead of getting a mix or two, how about trying a Batch? Batches are great for the items you like the most or when you know you will be preparing for large or multiple events.  The first time you purchase a Batch, you will want the jar that it comes in. After that, you can just order refills saving even more money.

For instance, the Sweet Cornbread Batch is equivalent to 10 individual mixes and will save you $11.50.  The refill will save $14.50.

There are many others in the Batch category.  Don't forget to look for "Vajdak, Denise" as your distributor. Be sure to order early to get it in time for Thanksgiving get togethers and enjoy!

On a New Trail

I am switching over to virtually walk the Tahoe Trail on +Walking 4 Fun. I was on the Pacific Crest Trail, but I switch off everyone once in a while for a change of scenery. This is a fun use of your Fitbit steps each day. Connect your Fitbit and it does all of the work. But, you may want to visit each day to see pictures of where you would be on the trail. 
You can see where I am by looking on the left side of my blog/site. I created a "Munzee" public group there. Join it and you can see where other Munzeers are "on the trail". Search for it here. I am also in the AtlasQuest group with other letterboxers.  Anyone wanna race?
Happy Trails!

Texas Challenge 2014

This weekend, I attended another Mega event in the Lone Star State.  The Texas Challenge 2014 took place in/around Bastrop, TX.  It is a reunion and competition for cachers in the state and for visitors as well.  The competition is fierce among the "regions" (anyone can join any region for competition).  Congrats to North Texas for the win!

I was not able to make it to any of the pre-events, but I did get there for the day on Saturday.  I met up with my geo-buddies, AgNav and Scrapnphotos and we shopped a little, greeted friends and capped and deployed some Munzees.  There were quite a few virtual and mystery virtuals in the area of the main Challenge event. New ones that I deployed had quite a few hits over the weekend.

At noon, those of us that were not on the hunt teams for the Challenge met at the Old Iron Bridge over the Colorado River in historic Bastrop for the official Bridge-spitting ceremony where we learned the song.

Spring Break Fun

This week was my son's Spring Break, so I decided to take a couple days off work so we'd have a long weekend to spend in Louisiana with relatives. We didn't get to come at Christmas, so it's been a while since we were here.

Our cousin and his wife have a new baby. Our aunt wasn't feeling 100%. Dang allergies!  I sympathize for sure! We didn't want to intrude on them too much, so we took the camper and made reservations at Fairview-Riverside State Park in Madisonville.  I LOVE camping, but my son doesn't.  So we both got to do some of what we liked. He has been dying to go see the baby and we both have been craving beignets.  We got to do a fish fry for Mama Amy's birthday celebration, which was soooooo good! Good job Matt and Uncle Dane!!!  I love fried catfish and it just hit the spot.  Max fell asleep on my chest for a couple of hours and all was good until my backside started to fall asleep. :)

This was our first time to camp in a Louisiana State Par…

Outdoor Activities

I had the day off for MLK day, so I got together with one of my best geo-buddies to go find some geocaches. On the way to meet up with her, the morning was very misty-foggy. As I was driving down FM 50 near Brenham, I saw a Bald Eagle flying low over a pond just to my left. I always get so excited about seeing these majestic birds so close to home and over the last couple of months, I have seen 3 of them. I was driving so I didn't have a chance to try to snap a picture.

We headed northeast to an area where there were caches that neither of us have already found. The fog was beginning to lift and it turned into a gorgeous day. Our first stop, a cemetery. The wind was whispering in the pines and birds were everywhere. I could have just sat there for a long time soaking it all in.  A "V" of Snow Geese flew overhead heading south. Wrens where about as were some Robins. I saw a tiny bird with a bright red stripe on its head and it was flitting around in the cedars righ…

Scavenger Hunts

The first round of Munzee Clan Wars of 2014 has started. There are just over 300 clans this month and I am in the DudeClan this time with other Texas Munzeers.  I was able to get out at lunch and deploy 3 more Munzees around Downtown Bryan and one of them is a Mystery. If you scan it, you can get anywhere from 5-50 points.

Clans consist of up to 10 players who band together to play. Individual points are added together to try to earn special clan "weapons" which are special Munzees that can only be earned as part of the clan wars.  For more info on Clans, click here.  New clans start and end near the beginning/end of a month. Players can join, leave and change clans only during that time frame.

Because of the GeoGearHeads Podcast, I learned about another location-based game called Sighter. There are now a few of them in Downtown Bryan as well. It is a Photography Based Urban Treasure Hunt. Use the app for Android and Apple. Open it and it will show you the nearest sights. A…
