Lots of excitement today!
Beth C. was the Vita-mix winner.
Sisters Erin + Kelli celebrated the opening to Great Harvest Nashua, NH and sent me a photo to prove it!
Hi Kath – Here is a photo of my sister Erin (loyal blog reader) with her first GH purchase! We bought a loaf of Honey Wheat and OH MY YUM Cinnamon Chip! Can’t wait for breakfast! Met Jeremy and told him you said hi. His wife is now a Kath Eat’s follower as well. Very nice people.
I got some mega work done with my laptop on the couch this afternoon. I think being comfy was the key to concentration!
And then I touched out the house with my Shaklee goods because Mrs. Clean herself came over to meet me!
Since joining as a distributor a few weeks ago, Becky has been my go-to resource for all things Shaklee. She’s been selling the products for 16 years and knows everything there is to know about the Get Clean line! She and her husband, Mike, have a lake house near Cville, so she came over to meet me and go out to dinner on their way to the lake.
The more I hear about Shaklee, the more I like it. It’s a lot like Great Harvest! A network of people passionate about making the earth a better place in their own special ways. Gwyneth Paltrow actually just teamed with the company’s Shaklee Cares foundation to donate a portion of sales from her cookbook, My Father’s Daughter, to disaster relief in Japan. See the video here.
Becky came with gifts! A few samples of the products I have yet to test out – including the laundry detergent!! I’m excited : ) ‘Cause we all know that I’m really about just getting clean + green!
I have a blog post in the works about the Nature Bright [Laundry Booster & Stain Remover] and was again wowed with the results!!! No need for bleach in this house –
Becky also told me that the company is doing an Earth Day promotion: Those who spend over $30 get a FREE membership – which means you instantly save 15% on all products and have nothing to lose. More here if you’re interested.
After talking for a while, we walked down to Fry’s Spring Station for pizza!
It was a chilly evening, but we sat outside for the lovely spring ambiance.
Matt got a beer –
But I stuck to water. That lunchtime beer was still lingering in the form of a headache
I had the beautiful + large greek salad – no onions please.
It was huge and very crunchy!
Matt started with a hummus plate, which he thought was going to be tiny. It ended up being massive! He shared with all of us : )
And lastly, Matt and I shared a BYO pizza – Sundried Maters, Jalapenos and Shrooms. I had two incredibly delicious slices!
We’re back in our warm, cozy house and are preparing ingredients for a big event we’re attending tomorrow night – The Men Who Cook! Matt’s one of the men!
Can’t wait to start a new book tonight! Don’t know which one it will be. I’m going to read the first paragraph of a few in my stack to see what I’m in the mood for!
