The randomly picked winner of our brand new “believer” charm necklaces is…
 photo blog believer wire cross_1.jpg
Sarah Jones, who said: I would choose Amethyst. Not only is it my son’s birthstone, it was my wonderful grandfather’s as well. My grandfather passed away in July 2009, and it February 2011, my son was born on what would have been my grandfather’s 74th birthday. So it holds a very special meaning!

Congrats Sarah, we will be contacting you for a ship-to address soon!

learning from the best!

Today our leadership team is learning from the BEST in the BIZ at
the “Disney Institute for Business Excellence”!
 photo disney institute.jpg
It’s hard for us all to get away from the studio sometimes,
but days like today are totally worth it.
We are constantly learning and trying to become better as a company
(I was a Psych major with a minor in Spanish after all!)
and we love learning from others that have been successful.
We walked away inspired, fed with knowledge and new insights…
it will be exciting to see what new ideas come out of it!

Disneyland with my girls.

My girls and I had an AMAZING time at Disneyland…
we ate Mickey Mouse waffles for breakfast…

We rode the new CARS LAND racing ride…
(which we weren’t able to get on the last time we were here because of long lines)
 photo DL blog1.jpg
and LOVED it!

All Tessa wanted was a goofy hat and gloves,
so for the rest of the trip Eden and I would point to her and say “we’re with GOOFY”.

We had lunch at Ariel’s Grotto…

watched the new Aladdin musical… it was amazing.

We stayed on property at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel which isn’t something we normally do, this was a total splurge (thanks to our American Express points!)
The hotel was very nice although the room was simple and basic…
 photo dl blog 13.jpg
but we were given a park view and able to see some of the rides from our balcony, it was pretty when they were all lit up at night time!

Because we stayed on property we were given access to the parks an hour before people NOT staying on property, so we were able to ride a few favorite rides without waiting. The weather was beautiful and the lines weren’t too bad, and being able to just take a break when we needed to go up to our room in a matter of minutes to rest (see Eden on her bed above) or go swim was perfect. We had a special entrance to one of the parks, and everything is within a short walking distance to each other (both Disney parks, Downtown Disney and our hotel) so we didn’t even rent a car.
We would definitely go back again!

growing up.

 photo dl blog11.jpg
It’s sad to say but my kids are growing up —
they don’t get super excited about characters anymore…
but they still take the pictures for me…
because I DO get excited, they’re so fun and part of the “magic”!
(thanks girls!)

room service!

I introduced the girls to room service…

and it was yummy!

Sorry Ryan!

just the girls.

This morning I woke up the girls with a fun surprise:
we are going to Disneyland!
 photo erin and girls blog.jpg
I don’t know how I’ve been able to keep this secret from them,
I’ve almost slipped many times.
I’m so excited to have them all to myself for a few days —
girls trip!

LA Dream Center.

 photo boys blog spring break.jpg
All 3 of my boys are heading out to help and serve at the LA Dream Center for their Spring Break! This is Caleb’s 3rd ministry trip as an 8th grader, Jonah’s first ministry trip as a 6th grader, and this year Ryan is a chaplain. So proud of my boys and just one of the many reasons we love our school and church — they are raising up leaders and missionaries, helping others, learning to serve and making a difference!

Kari Jobe

We are big fans of Christian singer/worship leader Kari Jobe and have been for many years. Sometimes we listen to her music while working in the studio. When we had the opportunity to make a few pieces for her we were honored, and getting to meet her was the icing on the cake!
 photo hope and kari Jobe.jpg
Hope and Jennifer (team members from our wholesale collection) loved getting to meet Kari and said her concert was AMAZING (not surprising!)

Thank you, Kari Jobe, for a fun memory!
