Changes!

Well.....so much for having a calm year!  No...we are not pregnant! Ha...

But there are some big changes taking place in our home!


I am so very, very proud of my husband.  Zach has started his own business.  He is not quitting his current job, this side job is in addition to.  Zach started his own Lawn and Landscaping business and currently has 15 clients and is quickly growing...whether he wanted to or not!  Zach is such a down to earth, honest and reliable person...and I am not just saying this because he is my hubs...he really, really is and it totally shows!  Over the last two months, he has started to really make relationships with his clients, added some new clients due to word of mouth and has even picked up a couple clients in our neighborhood!  The next couple months are going to be busy, busy...but both of us know this is going to really help our family and our future!  I can't say enough how proud I am of Zach...He is such a gift from God!  When I met him almost 5 years ago...I never would have imagined life being this amazing!  God continues to surprise me with this man!
There are also big changes in my work.  I have officially put in my 2 weeks notice at my current job and I am now the latest and greatest Tupperware Consultant!  I could not be more excited!  April is going to be a busy month for me starting parties and still working 2 nights a week for the next 2 weeks...but it is well worth it!  This is a huge leap of faith for me...but I am so confident that it is right for our family!

A little while ago, I wrote about how I was making some changes in our home life and that I really felt that the more I cooked...something I thought would be so difficult...the more improved our marriage and family life would be.  And...WOW...it has made a world of difference in our home!!!  I found that I was being very lazy in my responsibilities as a wife to my hubby and as a mother to my kids!  And that is something really hard to admit..  Since I am cooking more...I also want to find ways to make cooking easier, more practical, more cost-efficient.  And that is where Tupperware has really affected my new way of life!  I can prepare, store, freeze, re-heat food...you name it...in the kitchen faster and I am saving money!  And...I'll admit it...I am having a lot of FUN!  I never thought cooking would be so rewarding!  I was feeling, in my own head, very under-appreciated, but hearing Zach say how much he loved something I cooked or hearing him say a simple "Thank You" for cooking just makes my day!

Please keep our family in your prayers with our new ventures!!!!

Congrats to Zach! If we lived in the area, we would totally have to hire him.

BIG congrats to you! I love tupperware, so you can expect me to order!

Just wanted to stop in and wish you and Zach ALL the best, Becca!! And I do love me some tupperware. If my pantry was full of tupperware with lots of little labels stuck everywhere telling me what's in each container, I swear I'd spend more time in there than in my bathroom getting ready in the mornings. :)
