If you are ready to buy a starter kit, then be sure to sign up as a wholesale member (with one of the premium starter kits) through the instructions below to get your freebies!

1. Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.

2. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices (which is 24% more).

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2521058, that way I can send you all your FREE goodies.

4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.

5. Select which starter kit you want to get. To get the freebies, you’ll need to check the box next to the Premium Starter Kit.  You can get the kit that’s $150 or you can get the kit that’s $160 with the Bamboo Diffuser.

6. I’d recommend skipping Step 3 (Optional) part of the sign-up process. You’ll get an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs). We all love FREE products.

7. Go through the checkout process.

8. Be sure to send an email to Iheartoils1@gmail.com to let me know that you signed up through this promotion so that I can send you your freebies!

Frequently Asked Questions: 

Does signing up make me a "distributor"?

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month? 
There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

The Good Dinosaur Movie Review


"The Good Dinosaur" asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?  Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

My Review:
We were invited to attend the Good Dinosaur and I have to admit that my daughter and I were really excited. The previews are fabulous and we couldn't wait for a little "girl time".

As the movie started we meet Arlo, his brother, sister and parents who are still alive because an asteroid missed earth, millions of years ago. I don't believe in evolution but this is a cartoon and I took it at that.

Arlo and his family own a farm and actually grow corn as their food source.  Arlo is the youngest one in the family and seems to be scared of everything. I mean everything! His father was trying his best to teach him and encourage him that he could be brave and fight through the fear to make his mark in this world. Some of the things he said had me thinking about my own insecurities and fears and how I need to get past them. Which is good and bad, I have lots of work to do in my own life.
Then the movie kind took a turn. In true Disney fashion a parent has to die and leave the family to survive without them. It's sad but I saw it coming.  
There was a part in the movie that was not appropriate at all. Arlo and Spot (his "human" friend) eat some berries and they appear to be high. Normally, I don't think that part would have bugged me but when my 8 year old turned to me and asked why are they laughing that hard and acting like that, it really makes you think.  I know my kid's are going to have questions about drugs, and I need to be proactive about it but I guess I just wasn't prepared to have to answer anything in the middle of a Pixar/Disney film.

The scenery of the film is beautiful with large mountains and a river. The detail is gorgeous, you almost forget that you are watching a cartoon. I am not a huge 3D fan to begin with but some of the parts had me a little sick by moving too fast with the 3D effects. My daughter took her glasses off a couple of times. 

The Good Dionsaur didn't live up to my expectations. I'd recommend waiting for it to come out on dvd.

TKO Family Martial Arts has changed my kid's lives!

It is so hard to find the right extra curricular activity for the kids to do that will not only be fun but helpful in the real world.  I found that place at TKO Family Martial Arts.  

Coach K knew what he was doing when he named it FAMILY Martial Arts. TKO is one big family! He takes a vested interest in every student.  He knows his students, how they are doing in school and what's going on in their lives. My kids are not only learning Taekwondo but they are also learning age appropriate everyday life lessons. As a parent you can tell your kids something 100 times and they can't remember it a minute later but when Coach K tells them, they magically heard it from him for the very first time and REMEMBER IT!

It is amazing, from the first day when you walk in the door Coach K teaches the kids about respect.
When your parents ask you to do something when do you do it?
"Right away SIR!"  
I can't tell you how handy that line has been since having the kids at TKO!  

Coach K has a great balance of authority and humor to let the kids know that he is their friend and keep them in line at the same time.  

My kids have such respect for Coach K that if they are acting up and I say I am going to tell dad. I don't get too much of a reaction.  If I say I am going to call Santa and tell him, I will get a little more of a reaction but it doesn't really change the behavior. If I tell them that I am going to tell Coach K about what they are doing. They start screaming NOOOOOOO don't call him, I will stop!! It is so crazy to me, but it's true! My kids love Coach K so much and really care what he thinks of them (more than Dad, Santa and presents).

TKO Family encourages and motivates the kids, which in turn is teaching my kids to be confident.  I have one kid that is an absolute perfectionist.  NO seriously, if he misspells a word on a homework assignment he would erase his whole entire paper. That's how bad it is.
Since being at TKO, he is still a perfectionist but he is learning to believe in himself and to be confident with his moves and answers.

The classes at TKO are never over crowded because they have such a flexible schedule, which is great with my lifestyle. The classes that we have attended, they have an average of 4-8 students to a class.

They have a homework station and a toddler area which I think is great. I love that my kids can get some of their homework done while we are waiting for the next class. (I think homework is more hassle for the parents than the kids. I hated homework as a kid and now as a parent. Ok, I'm complaining about homework).

Coach K is such a patient person and is phenomenal with kids!  Another great thing about TKO is they let you try it out for 2 weeks for free.  You don't know if you or the kids are going to like something until you try it and they have no contracts. So what do you have to lose?
This is a great place to check out if you are interested in Taekwondo for any ages. They have adult classes too!

TKO Family Martial Arts is located at 1725 S. Rainbow Blvd Suite 22 (Rainbow and Oakey) 702 255 9856. 

Disney Live is in Las Vegas October 2-4

Disney Live is back in Las Vegas, just in time for my little princess' birthday. This year it is all about the classic princesses, Snow White, Cinderella and Belle! My little one let me know that Cinderella is her absolute favorite princess, followed by Belle and Snow White.
We made jokes about Disney clearing the itinerary of tonight's show with her since it is her birthday and her top 3 princesses were in the show. Leave it to my smarty pants daughter to agree with us. She might be expecting a call next year before the writers start production of next year's Disney Live. 
The show starts off with Snow White! I was really surprised by all the costumes. I am not sure why, because we are talking about Disney after all! They were great, I was really impressed by the Evil Queen and her transformation into the old "witch" trying to trick Snow White into eating the poisonous apple. 

She was just as creepy as she ever was.  In fact when we were watching and this "old witch" who Snow White has never met offers her an apple. I actually whispered into my daughter's ear, "Would you take food or even talk to a stranger like that!" It's definitely something I never thought about when watching the movies growing up. 
Then we move into the story of Cinderella! My little one was so excited for this one. Just look at Gus and Jus! I'm telling you, you don't expect to see Cinderella's 2 best furry friends in a live show but they are there and it was just incredible. Of course, the fairy godmother comes and helps Cinderella to the ball and it seems like time stopped when she walked into the ball and Prince Charming's jaw dropped. That is until midnight but then you know the rest of this story. 
I think Belle had the most impressive costumes! Especially from Ms Pots, Lumière, and Cogsworth.
I know Beauty and the Beast is not the same without them and it isn't, I love that Disney went all out and created such phenomenal character costumes and actors on the stage. 
If you are looking for a magical and enchanting evening, join Mickey and Minnie as they share 3 of the best classic princess fairy tale stories. You will sing along with the music (I dare you not to). This show was an hour and a half and that included a 15 minute intermission. 
We saw lots of princess and superheros all over the arena, so grab your favorite costume and head over to The Orleans Arena, this weekend!

Debt Free Planning: 52 week challenge

Our main goal is to be Debt FREE and that not only means for Christmas but for every aspect of our lives. Being Debt Free is a HUGE goal and takes some planning in our lives.
I know that this 52 Challenge is all over the internet and hard to pin point who actually came up with it first but I thought that my readers would like to join me in planning for Christmas 2015.

This 52 week challenge is pretty simple, you save the dollar amount that corresponds with that week. So the week of Jan 1st you save $1,
the week of Jan 7th you deposit $2 and so on,
by the end of the year you will have $1378 in cash for anything you choose.

You can also do this challenge backwards where you save the $52 on Jan 1st and take away $1 every week. 
I like things more uniformed so I think for me I like the 52 Week Challenge EVEN plan. I will just deposit $27 in my envelope every week and by the time Christmas comes I will have $1404. 

This challenge and everything else is 100% up to you. You don't have to use these particular plan or if you feel you need more or less money at the end of the year change your weekly deposits. This is totally up to you and your families needs.
