treasure hunts.

Our family began geocaching 4 years ago
and it’s something we randomly do together as a family.
This weekend we introduced Jonah’s friend, Jun, to geocaching,
I think he had fun!
 photo geo2.jpg
We found 3 on the way home from church!
 photo geo1.jpg
We use an app on our iPhones to get the coordinates, a map and clues to help us drive around and find the hidden “treasures” right here in our town- some are just minutes from our house. When you find the treasures, you take something from the container and then you leave something. Some are big treasures and some are small trinkets or toys, but the fun is in the hunt, and then you sign the log inside with your geocache name to show you found it.

Here is the app we use:
 photo geo3.jpg
They all are over the world, so everyone can play.

We are planning to leave a few geocaches soon and use the app to watch and see who finds it,
so much fun!

Who else likes to geocache?

i hope she loves it!

A couple of weeks ago Jonah came home with this jewelry order
from a boy in his class for the boys Mom…
 photo jorder1.jpg
Isn’t that so sweet?
We loved it and decided to have fun and make something for him to give her…
 photo jorder2.jpg
We will tuck the note in with the necklace so she knows,
I hope his Mom loves it!

share a blessing for Mom!

It’s “share a blessing” time again-
this is one of my most favorite thing we do at TVP!

We are asking you to help us bless others for Mother’s Day…
we LOVE to bless people, and we LOVE surprises,
we want to help you share some unexpected love and joy with others!
 photo sabmom.jpg
Do you know a mother who is going through some tough times
and needs to be blessed with a meaningful “pick me up”?
Together let’s bless someone that could use a sweet anonymous gift,
to show them someone is thinking of them who cares—
we want to send them a surprise package with a TVP goodie!

To nominate someone for a surprise blessing:
simply send us an email at customerservice@thevintagepearl.com by Friday, May 2–
put “A BLESSING FOR MOM” in the subject box,
briefly (2-3 sentences please) tell us WHY you are nominating this person,
and we also need to know:
1. their name
2. their address
3. customizing info
(kids names, meaningful words or a special date,
whatever you think will put a smile on their face!)

Thank you for helping us spread some blessings and making moms feel loved!
Please understand that we may not be able to do them ALL,
but we will bless as many as we can for Mother’s Day!

only MY child.

Last week the kids’ school picture proofs came in.
I don’t love school pictures but I get them just to have them,
they get tucked away in their memory boxes.
Caleb, Tessa and Eden all took good pictures.

Then I saw Jonah’s.

I sent him to school in a spring-y plaid shirt-
he looks good in green.

At some point that day
(prior to picture taking)
he decided to unbutton his shirt,
and on his white undershirt he used his markers to draw a Superman logo on his chest.
For bonus points he gave himself the “superman curl” on his forehead.
Then posed like any superhero would…
 photo jonah5thgradepic.jpg
At first I was annoyed…
I couldn’t help but wonder how come no adults said something to him,
like BUTTON YOUR SHIRT BACK UP?

Tessa informed me that “there are picture retakes, he can retake it.”
I considered that, but then I decided:
this picture is SO Jonah and I want to remember this,
so I’m buying the package

and this is how he’s going to look forever in the yearbook.

HUGE Rodan & Fields GIVEAWAY! (from my friend, Dana)

My name is Dana Hicks– I’m married 20 years this month to the love of my life Lonny, I have 2 boys – Tyler 14 and Jacoby 17 and I’m a 3rd grade teacher with early childhood & language arts endorsements.
 photo dana9.jpg
I was recently introduced to Rodan & Fields just a few months ago– I was practically out of ALL my skin care products on a day when I went to get my hair styled. I knew I needed to purchase something that would focus on my aging skin. My hair stylist of 10 years introduced the product to me at a perfect time. When she said the same doctors who created PROACTIV made the products, I knew I needed to try it.

What they did for the acne market with ProActiv, they are doing again for the Anti-Aging market.

Along with an Anti-Aging line they also have products for erasing sun damage and dark spots, soothing sensitive skin, as well as products for acne.

It saved my 17-year-old son from going on Accutane for his acne.

I immediately saw the potential of the business model becoming a blessing for my family financially, so I jumped in feet first and have enjoyed every moment sharing the products, caring for other’s skin care needs, and training other consultants to do the same.

I used REVERSE to get rid of my sunspots and uneven skin tone then added the complete REDEFINE regimen to decrease my wrinkles and minimize my pores. My son uses UNBLEMISH and the Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.

There are 4 product lines:
REVERSE
For brown spots, dullness and sun damaged skin.
 photo dana4.jpg

UNBLEMISH
For acne and post-acne marks.
 photo dana1-2.jpg

REDEFINE
For wrinkles, pores and loss of firmness.
 photo dana7.jpg

SOOTHE
For sensitive, irritated skin and facial redness.
 photo dana2-2.jpg

Each regimen is created to work in the right order, in the right formulations, in a multi-medicine therapy for specific needs. Each regimen is TWO MONTHS worth of product and 100% empty bottle money back guarantee. To find out which one is best for you, consider what your MAIN SKIN ISSUE IS. Watch this results video, it’s inspiring!

Why do I share Rodan + Fields? It’s a product I have tried for myself, I quickly saw amazing results and now I firmly believe in it and want to share it with others! It fits into my schedule as a working mom, my family wants to support short and long-term mission trips, we want to bless families who want to adopt with the funds to do so, and we want to financially be able to give ANYTIME we feel we are called to.

GIVEAWAY!!!
Let’s randomly draw to give away the REVERSE regimen (valued at $193.00)!
To enter the giveaway simply find out which regimen is right for you with this quick 30 second questionnaire HERE,
and tell us your results in the comments below.

home state love (new!)

 photo homestatelovecollcopy.jpg
Our “love for Oklahoma” necklace was so popular that we are now offering every state!

hung on a sterling chain with a pearl.
Some hearts will be bigger or smaller depending on the shape and size of the state,
but they all turn out beautifully–
a great way to show your pride for your state.
Shop for them here!
