Simple Pleasure Thursday 10/12

It’s Thursday! That must mean it’s time for our simple/guilty pleasures.

Do you have a simple or guilty pleasure to share this week? Mine is a bit silly, but that’s what simple pleasures are for, right?

This past week has been crazy busy as I’ve been telling you about. The Rodan+Fields convention, YTT, and now integrating back into real life, oh and let’s not forget mountains on top of mountains of homework!

My simple pleasure this week is thanks to the R+F girls!

I do believe I have mentioned at least once or twice that we have a R+F business opportunity call every month and a team call each week. Last week three ladies from our team got together and headed to Charleston, SC for a virtual convention event. Two ladies from Virginia, Tania and LeighAnn (who are practically neighbors) met Lucille from New Jersey, at an airport in North Carolina before driving on to South Carolina. They had never met her in person before.

When we had our ZOOM call Wednesday night LeighAnn was so excited! She had finally met someone shorter than her! Apparently Lucille is only 5′ tall. When I told them she had me beat (you know I’ve told you I can only claim 5′ on an eighties hair day) they couldn’t believe it! They said they thought I would be tall. I guess sitting down in front of the computer on a call makes me look tall, lol! I’m going to be meeting one of the other girls, Kathy, for dinner tomorrow night. She lives in Delaware and we are going to meet about half way. We are both excited! That’s the good thing about living in tiny states; you don’t have to travel far to get to the next one, lol. They told Kathy she would have to report back on if I really was that short.

I have decided they don’t pay attention to Facebook very much. I had posted the pictures below just a couple of weeks ago of me with a few guys from the gym. We all wore the same shirt that night, and Derrick (one of the trainers) just had to take a picture because we all matched. I’m sure they will be excited to know they made the blog as a “fashion statement”!

After we finished the call, I reposted these and tagged the girls! My post said “if I’m tall these guys must be giants”. What’s really funny is they had all liked or commented on it previously…..too funny!

So that was my simple pleasure this week. Finding out that behind the screen, at least, people think I’m tall. Maybe there’s still a chance I will grow up one day. And having fun, making friends, and bonding with ladies from all over even though we haven’t met in person.

Please share your simple or guilty pleasure for this week.

Simple Pleasure Thursday 10/5

We’ve passed mid-week and made to another Simple/Guilty Pleasure Thursday.

How has your week been, so far?

I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off! My mind going in a hundred directions at once. One minute I’m excited for the next Yoga Teacher Training weekend that starts tomorrow, the next I’m terrified. Self-doubt is running rampant at times. Breathe, I can do this! Enough about that, this is about Simple Pleasures.

I could list several today. Maybe I should just tell you about one and save some for another week. If you remember last Friday I told you I was going to have a phone interview with an author, Ingrid, who is working on a book The Anti-Aging Secrets of Yoga. She called Friday night and what was supposed to be a 15-20 minute interview was close to an hour! The interview was great and I enjoyed talking with someone about something I love and am passionate about. By the time we hung up it was like we were old friends!

During our call we started talking about yoga and children. Ingrid is also a yoga instructor, and has a friend, Teresa Power, who has written a book The ABC’s of Yoga for Kids and is also the founder of International Kids’ Yoga Day. I didn’t know there was Kids’ yoga day, did you? You can find Teresa’s books on her website http://www.abcyogaforkids.com and you can get information on Kids’ Yoga Day at  http://www.abcyogaforkids.com/kids-yoga-day. I have thought for some time that kids and yoga are meant for each other. If you are a yoga practitioner; have you ever noticed young children in many yoga poses, without even knowing what they’re doing? Since beginning to practice yoga myself, I have notice it with the grand littles almost every day. They are naturals. To be honest I’m a little envious of their abilities….I believe if we adults had been able to practice yoga as children we would be much better off physically and maybe even mentally now. I know I would be. I plan to start working with my littles on this and may explore it as part of my teaching journey.

So my Simple Pleasure this week is making a new friend! Do you have a simple or guilty pleasure to share? I’d love to hear about it. What do you think about yoga for kids or kids’ yoga day?

Simple Pleasure Thursday 9/28

It’s Thursday and that means It’s time for our next installment of Simple/Guilty Pleasure Thursday.

Do you have a simple or guilty pleasure to share with us this week?

If you’ve read the blog this week, can you guess mine? I’m calling mine a guilty pleasure this week, although it could be both.

Our little weekend trip to the Jersey Shore (simple pleasure) resulted in a trip to White Castle for hamburgers (guilty pleasure). Guilty, because I over do it on them. But I do plan for it too.

Let’s be honest here. That’s probably our main reason for going, to the Jersey Shore, lol!

Growing up in the south we had Krystal’s. They are basically the same kind of burger. The biggest difference between them is White Castle puts ketchup on theirs where Krystal puts mustard. I prefer to eat them straight off the grill with just the onions they are cooked with. Sadly (but probably for the best) neither one is very close to us. White Castle in NJ is roughly a three hour drive versus Krystal at around ten hours (right now the closest one I know of is in Georgia) not doable for a quick trip.

I do enjoy those little burgers. When they are steamed just right, it’s like a little bit of heaven. I think “The Man” likes White Castle better because they have crinkle cut fries! I could careless about the fries, I just go for the burgers. “The Man’s” uncle calls them belly busters, lol. They can be just bit gaseous! Yes, probably TMI….

We usually stop on the way home and get a “crave case” (that’s a box of 30) to bring back with us. This time we did not. That took a bit of will power.

I will just have to savor the moment until the next time.

Can you believe it’s already the end of the month? I have some new specials to share and some current ones that are going away.

First for the new:

A couple of you have expressed an interest in joining me in my Plunder business. From now through the end of September (which is only a couple of days away, how did that happen?) when you sign up as a Plunder Stylist  you will receive 10 extra piece of jewelry in your kit! So instead of the usual 9 you will receive 19 pieces of Plunder jewelry plus your sales tools! To sign up go to my website http://www.punderdesign.com/grandma2glamma and click on Plunder Opportunity.

If you have been on the fence now is a good time to get off! And if nothing else you could have a lot of your holiday shopping done!

And now for the old:

Remember that awesome Rodan+Fields Regimen/Hydration bundle special with the mini regimen?

It ends tonight. That mini-regimen is great for travel and is TSA approved. If you don’t travel, it’s an extra two weeks of product FREE!

If you don’t need a full regimen, but would like to try a product, I will be placing my last bulk order for September tomorrow (Friday) night at 6pm EST.

Message or email at grandma2glamma@gmail.com with your product choice and I will order it for you at PC pricing (that’s 10% off and free shipping) and get it to you!

Not sure what regimen or product is right for you? Take the solutions tool and find out. Be sure to enter your email, so I will know you tried the tool, and I will send you a micro-dermabrasion paste packet, just for trying it out.

I will not share your email with anyone else (that would be mean) you will just be the first to know when there is a new post.

Simple Pleasure Thursday 9/21

Good Morning! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve written a Simple Pleasure Thursday post. Not because I haven’t had any simple pleasures, but life has been busy! Sometimes I just let life and day-to-day events take over. I really do try to organize and manage my time, but I am not always good at that. Sometimes I wish I were better at it, but then there are days that I really like “flying by the seat of my pants” lol! Of course, flying by the seat of my pants is why I am still learning as I go with this blogging business! I am learning how to, not only, write a few posts ahead I have been able to get the scheduler to work, so that is going to be a big help.

This week or I should say the past few weeks my simple pleasure is “The Man”. Now, yes, he drives me absolutely bonkers (especially with his Sams club fetish) most days, but he has been a big help too. So far since school has started he has been home before I need to pick up Miss Quinn from pre school and I am able to leave Lessa and Caterina aka baby Sunshine home with him when I go to pick her up. It is so much easier than having to take a five month old and an almost two-year old to pick up an almost four-year old…..what makes that even better is; I can rarely park the “bus” in front of my house or on our side of the street. We have a “not so nice” neighbor and he feels the need to park vehicles they don’t drive on the street in front of everyone’s house but his own….. And yes, it’s a public street. However, this guy will go out of his way to jockey their cars in front of other folks houses taking up 1 1/2 parking spots (because they cannot parallel park). He even goes so far as to watch for someone to leave and then goes out and moves his car into that space. Now I don’t care that I have to park across the street until I need to take a five month old and an almost two-year across a busy street (ours is a main thoroughfare through the neighborhood) to get in the car and then bring a five month old, almost two and four-year old back across the street to get home. Courtesy goes a long way. So yes, that aggravates me and it is my rant, today…..I am so thankful “The Man” has been home so far and I have not had to do that, yet. It really has been a blessing.

Since we haven’t talked simple or guilty pleasures in a few weeks, what have your simple or guilty pleasures been? With fall being on the horizon mine will like start becoming food related, lol. After all it is almost time for comfort food, sweater and boots weather! Yay!

We are in the last third of September; can you believe it? Yesterday I made my first Rodan+Fields promotion!!! I am so excited! To celebrate I have 5 mini-facials that I would like to share. If you have been curious about R+F and want to try it, message or email me and I will send  you a mini-facial. I want to remind you of the Rodan+Fields specials. The Regimen/Hydration Serum/Travel Size Regimen special is ending on the 28th. If you have been thinking you need that, go ahead and grab it this week. Those travel sized regimens are a good two weeks of product. The full regimens are two or more months worth of product. They are TSA approved size but they are also perfect to keep in your RV or your weekend lake/beach house. Message or email me at grandma2glamma@gmail.com with any questions or to claim a mini-facial.

Thursday Simple Pleasures 8/31

This has been an incredible week, so far. How so? Stopping each day to list three things that have made me happy that day. It makes you aware.

It can become so easy and commonplace to focus on all the negatives in our lives. Sometimes you may have to look really hard to find the happy, but I bet there is something there, somewhere!

That is my Simple Pleasure for this week. Taking that time to focus on and list my three happy things for the day. Yes some days they may seem like pretty simple little things, but they are ” my” things or “your” things. There is no right or wrong.

How are you doing with listing your happy things? You may think “oh no one cares, no one is watching”. But guess what? They are. How do I know? I have been posting my three things every day on my personal Facebook page. Several of the #saturday7amsocialclub members who were not at the meeting last week (so they weren’t there to know about the challenge) have taken to posting their happy things too; because I posted mine and issued the challenge. One of my childhood friends has just issued a challenge to her friends on Facebook to do the same thing for the next 30 days, because of my challenge. That’s also a Simple Pleasure; knowing that one, seemingly small thing can inspire others. That was my hope/goal when I started this blog: to inspire others in some facet of their journey. I hope I do that on occasion. Sometimes I wonder, but….Maybe I have.

Yes, people do watch. But. What do they see? Do they see happy or do they see you have the “mulligrubs” all the time? I know not everyday is rainbows and unicorns, but I hope you have been able to find those happy moments.

My three happy things for Wednesday were

1. It was a beautiful day

2. I had a phenomenal workout

3. The grand littles are either in bed or home

Simple Pleasure Thursday 8/17

Do you ever just sit and say to yourself “what have I gotten myself into”? It seems I have done that a lot lately. “What was I thinking” has crossed my mind more than once. This week the littles have been so antsy I have said that daily, maybe even hourly, lol! Yes, that saga continues! Now you know I love them dearly and treasure my time with them, but they have been little stinkers with a capital “S” this week! I told them I was going to send them to daycare (specifically sunny side, remember that from the Toy Story 2 movie) and I was going to work at McDonalds…..I’m still thinking it has to do with the lunar eclipse. My friend Robert, wasn’t quite sure about how that works, but my friend Marie thinks it’s probably so. Her words were “people have been just bat-poop crazy”…..Ha! What an understatement! Have you noticed that extra dose of craziness around you? I want to say I can’t wait for school to start back, but then I’ll be running back and forth….even good things can have some negatives.

What is my Simple Pleasure this week? Can I find one? I think it has to be having a few minutes alone in quiet. I ran out last night to get my haircut. I can’t say that was really a pleasure, but I left the house alone to do something other than go to the gym. I am on the hunt for a new stylist; Again. I found one a few months ago, recommended by my friend Paula who runs a Facebook blog The Weigh Inn and is a member of the #saturday7amsocialclub. Can I just say he was F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!! I think it was the best cut I have ever had and it stayed looking great through the entire “grow out time”. I never had that love it one day hate it the next syndrome. Then he up and moved; over an hour away from us!!! The nerve!

Because I have waited longer than I should have my hair was getting to the point I couldn’t do anything with it, so I ran up to one of the chain shops…..the girl didn’t do a bad job, but she was not the replacement I was looking for either. The hunt continues. Or maybe I will be taking a drive to western Maryland….I might be able to get two visits in before the weather gets too bad to chance traveling out that way.

So this weeks Simple Pleasure may be two fold. A few minutes of quiet time away from the house and a good hair stylist! What is your Simple or even Guilty Pleasure for this week?

Thursday Simple Pleasures 7/20

It’s Thursday! What does that mean? It’s almost Friday and the weekend? Well, that too, but, it’s time for our Simple Pleasures!!

This week my simple pleasure is fresh homegrown tomatoes and tomato sandwiches.


We enjoy going to the Baltimore Farmers Market every year. It is open from April thru December. I like going the first week it opens, just because, but we don’t usually go often the first few weeks because there isn’t much produce. There are a lot of plants and such, but those plants are much better off if I leave them there, lol!

A couple of weekends ago we went and I got some great tomatoes! I ate tomato sandwiches for lunch every day the following week! They were so delicious! Such a simple thing, but oh soooooo good! Do you enjoy fresh grown tomato sandwiches? What do you put on yours? I like just a bit of mayo and a little S&P. Sometimes I’ll make a BLT but when I want a tomato sandwich, I really just want tomatoes, lol!

I don’t know about where you live but folks here in Maryland swear Maryland tomatoes are better than any other. Ironically folks from New Jersey (where “The Man” is from) will tell you the same thing! I agree and disagree with them all, lol! I have had tomatoes grown Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, Canada, and South Dakota. They are all absolutely great! But I will say this, they were all “homegrown, vine ripened” tomatoes. Tomatoes bought at farm stands or farmers markets; not tomatoes bought at the grocery store, that are half green looking or pinkish. That is the key. There is nothing like a tomato picked ripe from the vine, grown in nutrient rich soil!

I usually buy from the same farmers each year, although My M.O. is to walk through the entire market when I arrive. I do this to see what is available, and the cost. I then walk back through and make my purchases based on availability and sometimes cost, but cost is not the deciding factor. The overall quality and freshness that day is. Then I make my purchases. I then often cris cross the market making my purchases so that I purchase the heaviest items on my out. We often take a wagon with us if planning on making a lot of purchases.

This photo is from five years ago. Wasn’t Noah so cute chasing down his wagon?

Noah enjoyed riding and eating our purchases!

Are you fortunate to have farmers markets? What are some of your favorite finds? What is your simple pleasure for this week?

Simple Pleasures 7/6

It’s time for Simple Pleasure Thursday.

Today my Simple Pleasure is: Spring/Summer rain! Don’t you just love the smell of rain in the air during spring and summer? That earthy smell; either just before or after the rain?

This morning it is raining and after a couple of weeks with scorching hot/humid weather, it is refreshing (for a bit). Now don’t get me wrong, there are times when I have to be out and about, running around that I dislike rain; probably like many of you. But this morning just sitting here drinking coffee and looking out the window at a nice soaking rain is refreshing. The “powers that be (the weather man)” has predicted that this will last off and on all day. We shall see about that, lol!

We are coming up on the end of the week and I haven’t clobbered “The Man”, yet, lol! For those who don’t know, he has been off work on “vacation” all week….I seriously get almost nothing accomplished when he is home. It’s much like having another child underfoot…..at times.

This Saturday (our anniversary) we are taking a day trip with two of the grand littles, Noah and Miss Quinn, to Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA. This is an amusement park, mainly for kids. We have passed it for years but have never been there. It should be fun, right? Have any of you been there? If so, what are your thoughts, experiences, recommendations? At least the outlets are just up the street, should I need some retail therapy after, hahaha!

What is your simple or guilty pleasure this week? Do you like the rain? The sound of rain on the roof, the smell in the air? Take a minute and share with us!

Have you signed up for the blog email, yet? If not you can sign up with the subscribe button at the top right side of the page or on the “pop-up”. What happens if you do? You will be the first to know when there is a new post! That’s all. I will not share your email with anyone else, that’s just mean. The email list is getting close to 100 now! I know that doesn’t seem like a lot, but we all start somewhere! Your liking, commenting, and sharing has helped it get there! When it reaches 100, I will have a give away! What I’m not sure of yet.

Simple/Guilty Pleasure Thursday 6/22

Hello! It’s time for Simple/Guilty Pleasure Thursday again! This week I have (what I will call) a guilty pleasure. It’s a game! Yes, a game. I play Candy Crush!


Really, I do! I started playing it on a whim a few years ago and was hooked immediately! I don’t play it as frequently as I did in the beginning, but there’s rarely a day that I don’t play for a few minutes.


I also play Words With Friends and right now I have games going with four people! In my mind, it keeps my mind active, lol! I only devote a few minutes of my day to them, but I must admit, I do enjoy just zoning out for a few minutes and playing.

Do you play either of these games? Are you caught up in any of those “Facebook” games? These are the only ones I play, though I get requests daily from “friends” trying to get me caught up in their games. Sorry, guys, I have enough to keep up with!!! It seems some folks do nothing but play games all day. I wish I had that much time on my hands, lol!

What is your simple/guilty pleasure for this week? Take a minute and share with us!

Don’t forget, when you comment on the blog during June (my birthday month) you get a chance to win that weeks Plunder Jewelry.

 Simple Pleasure Thursday 6/15


Hello! How are y’all today? It’s time for another Simple Pleasure Thursday!

My simple pleasure this week is enjoying my first cup of coffee in the morning, sitting alone, while the house is still quiet! Waking up, just sitting in the quiet with that first cup. I just sit and meditate, reflect, turn the news on low (not always the best choice) and enjoy the warmth of that cup in my hand.

I drink two cups every morning. Other than that I’m a water drinker. If we go out to breakfast I will get coffee too, but other than the morning, I am not a regular coffee drinker.

Sometimes I take it for granted. I certainly realized how much I enjoy a “good” cup of coffee in the morning, while I was away yesterday. I was quite excited to learn that the hotel offered complimentary coffee all day. That was until yesterday morning when I woke up. I went down and poured a cup of mud….the night person apparently didn’t drink coffee or make it…I went back an hour later (because I just had to) and the same coffee was still sitting there 😳. I had to wait until we went for breakfast to get a cup. And I enjoyed every sip!

I actually have a travel coffee pot that I bought to take when I know I won’t be able to get coffee when I get up (we are early risers) and if I’m traveling for a race I have to time my rising, eating, and such for the race start. I didn’t take it, since it was just an overnight trip….

After breakfast, where I tried to make a healthy choice, we headed to the boardwalk. The view for the morning certainly did help make up for the poor coffee start.

Now this view every morning, while drinking coffee, might just be perfect! What do you think?

What is your simple pleasure for this week? Leave a message and let me know.

I’ll be telling you about my trip soon!

Until the next time

Janet
