 have you entered my giveaway? enter to win some perfectly posh products and pamper yourself!! monday's the last day!

hey everyone! happy friday. i've been busy doing poshy business, and haven't had really any time to settle down and type! fortunately, they make memes for that :)

1. Who mows your grass?
lincoln military housing. on thursdays. thank you lord!

2. Do you have a picture wall or picture gallery in your house (show us! <--- my addition to the question)?
i do not. i've been thinking about it for three years, and now we're moving. i'll have to light a fire under my behind and do it at our next home!

3. What book has influenced your thinking the most? Or, what blog? (I want to read what gets people thinking!)
i enjoyed the shack. and of course the bible, but (for me) that goes without saying. 

i'd have to say the MOST influencing book i've read recently was Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton. but it's kind of a tough read -- it was written in what is now rather antiquated english. but WELL worth fighting through. 

and of course, mere christianity by c.s. lewis. and ANYTHING by tozer.  

4. Do you have allergies? If so, how do you handle it this time of year?
no, not really. occasionally i'll struggle with a stuffy nose in the morning, but vacuuming my mattress has helped with that!

5. What's your go to meal to cook in an hurry?
pasta with ham and peas. i just sautee some onions and garlic, throw in some ham, and pepper and toss it with butter, pasta and peas (i cook the peas during the last 3-4 minutes of the pasta boiling -- i only use frozen or fresh veggies). 

love, me


help me launch!

I'll bet you haven't heard of Perfectly Posh.

Perfectly Posh offers pampering that is spa-grade, long-lasting, and a fabulous experience. We fragrance with high-quality perfumes and essential oils. Our products, made in the USA, are PURE  are free of parabens, paraffins, SLS, gluten and soy, and are preserved with vitamin E! Many of our products are even vegan. You can take care of yourself with products that will please you both mind and body.

This business is brand new. We JUST launched in October of 2011, and are growing rapidly.  We have over 80 pampering products from your face to your feet, including bombinators (bath fizzies), skin lotions and slathers, foot care products, liquid and bar soaps, lip balms and glosses, and more.

But why, Aleasa? WHY? 
I had been thinking about signing up for a second home business venture for a while. I was happy with the money I was making and the effort I was putting forth to make it (very little), but I really wanted to find another business to help me bring in enough for us to make a car payment. (I could do this with one company -- but what's the rule? DIVERSIFY!!)

So here I am. Being Perfectly Posh. And I LOVE it. It's a super duper business opportunity. Since we're so new, it's what they call a 'ground floor' opportunity. And, it is. But nothing is going to be awesome unless you MAKE it awesome. You can join a company with hundreds of thousands of consultants and be a rockstar, or a company with 10 and still blow it. It's not about the company -- it's about you and what you want.

Have you ever thought about direct sales? 
I avoided home party people like the plague, and now I'm starting a second one. So I think it's safe to say that there's nothing scary or weird involved (like I thought). If you've EVER had any questions about it, or considered it, shoot me an email. I'll answer ANY question you can think of. Of course, we want to build teams, of course.

Also, I always want to put it out there.. you do NOT have to ask people to sell. I personally just want to build a Poshin' team and would love the opportunity to be a leader to gals like me, who thought this wasn't for them. And this is not just about stay at home wives and moms. There are full-time people in the corporate world who STILL sell tons of products. That's why these are great ventures.. YOU'RE the boss. And no one knows when you need a break better than you :)

this is a bombinator. put it in your bath, then put yourself in. repeat.

Soo.. what's this all about? 


Right now, we have over 80 products. Hop on over to posh.aleasa.net and check us out. You can also email me at ohmyposh@aleasa.net if you have any questions or are interested in purchasing or signing up. And if you buy 5 items at $8 or more, get the sixth free! That's no Spring Special.. that's always!


To expose my friends to Posh, and to have them expose their friends to Posh, I'm hosting a gnarly G I V E A W A Y!! Enjoy our Awesome Blossom pampering pack, featuring a luxurious cherr blossom slather, 3 cherry butter minibombinators, and a cherry vanilla lip butter to boot. 

Enter to win! Giveaway ends midnight 4/16!
Be first to experience Posh
and make all your friends jealous!



when i survey the wondrous cross..

Happy Easter friends!

Today was fabulous. Just considering the importance of this day -- without a resurrection Sunday, there is no Christian faith -- just blows my mind. Our church had Tri Tip after service. It was amazing. Plus, the weather is beautiful and it's baseball season and I have a package coming on Tuesday that I'm REALLY excited about. It's just a dang good day!

this photo (that i took in jerusalem) makes an appearance on my blog as least once a year! i just LOVE it!

I'm in the process of writing a small 3 or 4 session bible study surveying the cross for a followup of Easter. Would you be interested in reading and critiquing it? I have never written anything in this form before, but I would love to share it with y'all if you're interested. That, and knowing that people are waiting on me will put some fire under my toes!

Please email me at hello [at] aleasa [dot] net and let me know if you'd like to survey the cross with me!

Happy Easter! :))

love, me


motivation monday (fail)

  well everyone. i'm back to wanting to lose weight.

WELL... i've always wanted to lose weight. but i'm back to trying.

Source: google.com via aleasa on Pinterest

...because let's be honest. ain't no 7-day, 2-week, 30-day magic routine or milkshake that's gonna get you where you need to be. there is a magical thing called surgery, but i won't go there.


gracie ate 40 chicken wing bones yesterday by breaking into the closet that houses our garbage can. we really really thought we'd gotten her away from raiding the garbage. obviously, we keep it locked up anyway... but we hardly wonder what's on the other side of the kitchen door when we pull into the garage.

well, it was an empty hooters takeout box. bleh.


needless to say, she was not feeling good yesterday, and started to, erm, excrete the so called treasures of her little sunday escapade.


so i was up at 4:30 am, without a chance at getting back to sleep and desperate to keep her off my LIGHT carpet.

so i took her for a walk.

at five am.

i just thought, 'you know what? i'm always complaining that i can't wake up this early and here i am awake.. ma as well make the most of it!'


so naturally it follows that i had to eat something healthy-ish for breakfast. i meant to make myself some oatmeal, but (somehow) left late.

 this post was SUPPOSED to be about oatmeal from starbucks, jamba juice, mcdonald's and chik fil a... and about how i'm not obsessed with dumping a quarter cup of brown sugar and butter on my oats. but that's going to have to wait.

this post is way too long.

BUT i have one more thing to say... GRACIE started vomiting and pooping so much that we had to make an emergency vet visit. ridiculous. i drove an hour from orange county to get to her, and an hour back for class at 5. she's obnoxious.

UPDATE on gracie and a note about why motivation monday came on tuesday: $200, fluids, and a few rounds of anti-nausea and anti-diarrhea meds. *sigh* but she's doing okay. she hasn't been sick since last night and she's feeling (or acting) more like herself this morning. poor thing... but this dog is going to be the end of our savings account!

love, me
