Root Beer Floats

Last night a friend (Jill) and I went to the drive-in!!  We saw Cars 2 and the new Pirates of the Caribbean .  More important than the actual movie was a good time with a friend.  We each brought a cooler of goodies and gobbled junk food and talked for 4 hours.  A W E S O M E! ! !     Funnel cakes, jellied fruit slices, Hershey's chocolate bars, honey/mustard pretzels and our pièce de résistance...root beer floats!!

Work has changed my schedule again after the official deadline...sigh.  Its not that I mind the extra hours or that today is now my only day off this week (and I'm sure I'll be working next Sunday and Monday since it is 4th of July..more than 7 days in a row), but the fact that the schedule isn't final until Friday at 6 pm which makes it hard enough to make plans for a personal life and now when you do make plans they can just change their schedule at will without regard to their employees.  If that isn't a long run-on sentence, I don't know what  Seriously Meijer....writing a schedule really isn't all THAT hard, lets write one and stick with it!!

My youngest got to hear her baby's heartbeat on Friday.   yay!  Beating at 155...that is girl territory.  My step-niece will be finding out if she is having a boy or a girl in July so my daughter should be finding out in August.  That seems like an eternity away. 

My youngest also gets all the blame for my current creative streak in the kitchen as she has me watching the Food Network.   I haven't gotten any complaints about this yet. I'll let you know when we are eating boxed macaroni and cheese because of a failed recipe.  ;)  I plan on trying my hand at home-made bacon in the near future!

Tuesday my Avon District Manager and I are going recruiting for new representatives.  Wish us luck, I would like to come away with no less than 3 new people.  There is still time to order from my website ( and take advantage of my previously mentioned web special.   You can also sign up to sell Avon at using reference code sherylsalmons for only $20!  Where else can you start a business for $20?!?!

Time for me to go out and cut some branches away from the phone lines.  Every time the wind blows the phone crackles and disconnects...aggravating!!!  I want to have it done before the granddaughter gets here.

First post

Since I always have something to say I thought blogging should be a piece of cake.  Now that I am sitting here in front of the computer actually doing it, I'm thinking YIKES...what am I doing?  Who in the world do I think is going to actually read this?  I know I have lots to say all the time, but seriously...does anyone care what I have to say?  :)    Time will tell.

I guess the best place to start is with an introduction.  My name is Sheryl Salmons.  :)  I have 2 children and 2.5 grandchildren (yay!  the .5 arrives in December).  I have what I consider the most adorable Beagle in the world, his name is Max.  To be sure you will be seeing pictures of him in the future.

I am an Independent Avon Representative and currently a Unit Leader.  I am working to increase my customer base and advance my title.  I intend to be an Advanced Unit Leader by the end of the year.  If you are interested in buying or selling Avon, please send me an email.  

In our current brochure we are introducing Scentini...wonderfully fruity frangrances.  Make sure you shake the bottle up to get the full effect when you spray.  Make-up on pages 18 and 19 of the C14 brochure feature any 3 for $10.99.  Great prices!!  

I think I am going to offer a "Blog Special" when you order direct from me.  Summer is upon us (even though you cannot tell by the 49 degrees it was last night) so lets start the summer off right with some new sandals!!   For every pair of shoes you order in the C14 brochure, choose a FootWorks product (pages 168-171) as a free gift.  Your feet will love you for it!  :)  Send me an email!!

We have new products coming in C15-superSHOCK Mascara and Lipstick.  Order one of each for $7.99, if ordered separately at the intro price it would be $10.98, so order the set and save yourself $3!!

Thanks for reading and have a super day!
