Happy FRIDAY!!

 Hey, friends! Just jumping on here to say that I will be leaving for a super fun girls trip to Salt Lake City on Monday and I'd love for you to follow along on Instagram! I'm @amandanall in case you aren't following me and would like to! The first half of the trip is a Leadership Retreat at a FABULOUS "MTV Cribs" style house. I think there will be about 20 of us so it should be so much fun and way fancier than any rental I've ever stayed in, for sure. ;) 

The second half of our trip (Thursday to Sunday), we will move to a hotel for Modere's Social Retail Conference. I can't wait to see all of our new girls at their first conference!! Our team has been growing like CRAZY!!! And for good reason! They are all finding a home here. Success here. Extra income, a community, a place to much. If you are wondering if this could be right for you, let me tell you, I am almost certain that it is! It is right for anyone looking for any of these things!!! It's as easy as grabbing the products you're already ordering or want to order plus a $40 link. Boom.There are SO many success stories I wish I could tell, y'all. The only secret is that they all show up for their business and their customers every day. And when I say that, I mean they take about 30 minutes a day to do some things. It is NOT hard. It is the greatest little side hustle with the best women you will ever meet and the baddest, coolest chick ever hanging on to that #1 Woman-Led Company title right now. Talk about science and innovation...this company is the GOLD STANDARD.

So I hope that you follow along next week! We're leaving Monday afternoon and will be home Sunday afternoon. It's going to be full of so many fun things including a "sparkle and shine" cocktail party (ooohhhh!!) and an 80s night which is going to be so much fun.

Here's a sneak peek at my 80s look. I'll add some majorly crimped hair and hairspray to really round it out. ;)


The 80s were so weird, y'all. Why did we think this looked good?!

Have the best Friday, friends and I hope to see you again here after the trip for a full recap!

Hey hey girls! Happy Friday!

Y'all, we started this week with a high of 80 and I was in heaven. I sat out by the pool late in the afternoon and relaxed until the sun went down. I am so ready for more of those days! But this being Texas and all, by Wednesday it had dropped to the 30s and was rainy and yesterday we were all out of school because of ice. And it stayed at about 25 degrees all day. 🤦‍♀️

But all that time being stuck inside yesterday gave me a good excuse to get back to the blog! I mean, it HAS been almost 2 months. #oopsie

Can I just say, it feels SO good to hit that "publish" button again on a blog post! I've missed my blogger peeps! I feel like we have a lot to catch up on so instead of Favorites of the Week, this is going to be more like Favorites of Lately and I'm only covering what I've been watching and wearing for now because we'll be here all day if I don't cut it off. More favorites from lately will be coming in a separate post. ❤

Hello, 2022!!

This is my first post in the new year and I just wanted to stop and thank you all for sticking with me for so long! It's hard to believe I'm coming up on 5 years here in this little space! I know I've been sporadic here (at best) this past year as I learn how to juggle a new (and booming) business with Modere, my little Etsy shop, the Daily Deals Group on FB, and this blog on top of mom/wife/household duties. Sometimes it can all get overwhelming and my head just spins thinking of what I need to do each day with each of them. Do you ever get like that? So overwhelmed that you just get paralyzed and then do...nothing? #hi #itsme 🤦‍♀️ 

I'm determined to be better this year.

So thank you for continuing to read here and for your sweet comments both here and on social media. Thank you for supporting me, encouraging me, cheering me on, and being so KIND. It means so much and I just appreciate it more than you know. ❤

And now...a huge photo dump from December.

Happy Friday, friends! I'm back today with an installment of Friday Favorites which, I actually haven't done in forever. When did I become so bad at this?! 🙈 Regardless, I've made it happen today and I can't lie...I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for 2 posts in a row. (You can find yesterday's post HERE in case you missed it.) So settle in for some of my most random favorites from the past few weeks.

Hey hey, friends! I'm back today after...hmmmm...almost another month off??? #oops I clearly like to keep you guys guessing on when the next post will be. 😬

Today I'm just here to catch y'all up with some highlights from the past month and then tomorrow, I've actually got a Friday Favorites post all ready to go too. (Seriously, when is the last time I did a true Friday Favorites post?! I looked. It was September. I'm tryin', friends!)

Hopefully, this is a sign that I can get back to a routine over here. No promises though. If you're following me over on Instagram  or Facebook, that's a great way to stay caught up. I'm way more active over there. 

But moving on to what's been happening over here for the past few weeks...

You guys know how much I love my girlfriends. My besties, Dani and Pam, are always down for a good chat with food and wine (or margaritas--we aren't picky) so a few weeks ago we stayed in and sat around Dani's table just talking for about 6 hours. How is it that time passes by so quickly when you're with your people? What the heck did we even talk about for 6 hours?! I know the cat got an earful. Thank goodness cats can't talk. 😉

 Welcome back, y'all! Two blog posts in a row after a weeks-long hiatus?! What is happening. 😂

Unfortunately, if you're not on board our little collagen train or have absolutely no desire to learn about it, you'll probably want to skip this post. 😉 But please come back next time!! No hard feelings. ❤️

Modere's Black Friday sale starts TODAY (I'm not sure exactly what time it will go live but it will be by tonight for sure) but it's pretty huge and they are bringin' it with the sales, deals, and freebies.

UPDATE! DEALS ARE LIVE! Don't forget to hurry to put in those orders before all the goodies sell out! See them all here. REMINDER: New customers, make sure you see my name as your referral person when you register/create your account. If you don't see it automatically, type in AMANADA10. If you don't, you won't get an additional $10 off.

So my job, as your rep, is to get you all the info you need and get you set up as easily as possible. I've learned that one comprehensive blog post seems to be the easiest way to reach the masses, so here I am. 

Honest to goodness, I've seen such huge changes in my body once I stopped just canceling out my supplements with bad choices. I was maintaining easily but once I started to do the things below--more water, moving more, staying away (for the most part) from bad carbs and fried foods...I saw HUGE improvements. Who knew I even had muscles still?! And yes, some of this comes from just being more responsible with lifestyle choices, for sure! But I've never been able to maintain my muscle tone while also losing weight. I've never seen the scale drop this quickly just by adding some basic workouts a few times a week. This is what it's done for my body composition. 

Last month, 40 hit me hard, I'm not gonna lie. Like seriously--how am I 40?! Panic mode was turned up to high. So I decided I was going to fight this stupid aging crap with whatever I could. And now, I haven't felt like this in 20 years. Discipline, supplements, and a little bit of exercise help tremendously.

 Ok, my bad. Apparently, taking a week off after my birthday led to an extended vacation from Blogland. For those of you who have commented or messaged me saying you have missed me around here...thank you! Y'all are the sweetest and it's always nice to know you've been missed. I really didn't mean to be gone so long but things just got busy busy and this blog is the one to take the hit when I have to let something go in order to save my sanity. 😉

I feel like I've got so much to catch you up on but hopefully, you've been following along over on Instagram. (I'm @amandanall.) If you haven't, here's a little peek at what's been going on in our world for the past month.


Halloween was fun! The weather was perfect and our little group of 6th-grade boys is always a good time.
