Happy 2nd "Gothcha" Day Hudson!

Hudson's "gotcha" day. March 10th, 2008!

We were in Wuhan, Hubei China two years ago on March 10th meeting Wu Mo Wen/Hudson LeRoy Wen Byrd! He was 2 1/2 years old, happy, playful, entertaining & full of energy! It's hard to imagine what life might be like without someone. Well it's hard for us to remember what life was like before we had Hudson. We feel as though we have been a family of 4 much longer than 2 short years. Children are such a blessing & we are so thankful he is our son.
Here are a few words that describe him: loving, honest, happy, caring, the best big brother, smart, protector, helpful, planner (he's like our own little Franklin Covey....always wants to know what's next on the agenda), handsome, sensitive, and adventuresome. We couldn't love him more!
Happy "gotcha" day HL Wen!

Spokane Time!

Every time we are back in Spokane our time seems to be jam packed, since we no longer live there. I'm not complaining though, as you can see from the pictures we did get a little down time in. We had a fun Byrd wedding & got to spend time with family & friends.

Oh Mexico!

Stephan & I got to spend a fabulous week on Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! My parents offered to watch Hudson & Ravenna & that was all we needed....it was a wonderful & relaxing time!
We rented a car & headed up the coast to Todos Santos for a day. We stopped by the "Hotel California"...yep the one from the Eagles song!

This was a must for me everyday! Chips, salsa & guacamole....my favorite & they have the best guac & salsa in Mexico...really they do!

Stephan checking out the big waves on our own private beach outside of Todos Santos.

I love this picture as it shows the mist from the sea spray.
This is how we spent our days....heaven.
Our room at Hacienda del Mar. This resort is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Love it!

Happy hour at the swim up bar.
Just us.

The beach at Hacienda del Mar.

Stephan out for a swim in the gorgeous water.
We had to say goodbye to paradise, but were thrilled to get home to our kiddos! Thank you to my parents for taking such great care of our most prized possessions while we were away!

Looking for something....like I was?

I am so excited about my new job, and I am on a mission to share why.
Direct selling or buying anything?
Before you say "no thank you" just like I thought I would, read on.
It's high-end, clinically proven skincare from trusted professionals and you can have gorgeous skin.

I really love skincare products and when I heard that the doctors who created Proactiv have created 4 new skincare lines targeting the most common skin issues, I was interested.
When I heard that the lines were initially sold in high-end retail stores like Nordstrom, Macy's, Bloomingdales and Henri Bendel and were the #1 dermatological line in retail (in 2 of the stores), I really wanted to try it. When I learned that the company offers a 60-day empty bottle money-back guarantee on all products, I ordered.
And, finally, when I heard that Rodan + Fields Dermatology was trying to change the Direct Sales Industry,
that Warren Buffet listed R + F as a Direct Sales company to watch in 2010, once I looked at the compensation & bonus plans in place, & I found out I could work to my own schedule, I wanted in on it.

Rodan + Fields Dermatologists was established in 2002 by the creators of Proactiv, Drs. Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields, two of the most quoted dermatologists in the industry. Their mission is to bring dermatology-based skin treatment to the masses. After their retail launch, Estee Lauder purchased a small percentage of the company and extensive market research was conducted. The results indicated that people were buying the product because of recommendations from their friends and family. In an unprecedented move, Rodan + Fields became the first prestige skincare line to exit the department store for the world of direct selling. It is a direct selling opportunity with a five star reputation. Like if Nike entered the world of direct selling.

Never in the history of network marketing has a company stepped to the plate on day one with:
• the 20 year credibility of the doctors who created Proactiv which had profits around $860 million last year
• an established, award-winning product line that was #1 in retail
• highly consumable products that are FDA compliant and clinically proven

Four simple regimens that target the four most common skin concerns: REVERSE for sun damage, ANTI-AGE for fine lines & wrinkles, UN-BLEMISH for acne and SOOTHE for sensitive skin.

Give the consumers the opportunity to benefit financially from spreading the word about the products instead of retailers. This is a ground-floor opportunity, be the first to introduce Rodan + Fields all across the country, and then internationally. Rodan + Fields just ended their first full year in 2009 & came in 400% above projections. 2010 is going to be a big momentum building year & if you or anyone you know of may be interested please let me know.
