I'm so glad to be writing this post! Stellan is feeling much better today. He has been out of SVT since yesterday and they are slowly weaning him off his IV medicine. If all goes as planned he should be going home soon! Yay! Thank you to all of my friends and family that have been praying for Stellan. I know his family appreciates it more than you know. Please join me in continuing to pray for him. That he will continue to get better and be able to go home with his mom and dad soon. He has a birthday to celebrate!! :)
For those of you who read my blog, please be in prayer for little Stellan. He is back in the hospital with SVT again. His first birthday is tomorrow and it is my prayer that he will be well enough by then to enjoy some birthday cake!

Please join me in praying for sweet Stellan as well as praying for the rest of his family and all of the Dr's and nurses who are caring for him. Thank you!!!!
So I recently started selling Mary Kay and I'm SO excited about it!! Mary Kay is such a wonderful company to work for. I am also completely excited about giving back to others. My heart has always been to give back. I think that it is an important part of life to help others. After all, wouldn't you want someone to help you? It warms my heart more than I can say to know that my business will not only be helping to support my wonderful family, but it will be helping charities and ministries that I feel passionate about. And as my business grows (and hopefully this will happen SOONER rather than later!) so will the list of charities and ministries. My hope is that God will bless my business SO much that I am able to give back to quite a few organizations. And for those of you who would like to join me in this, please contact me! I would love to get you signed up to sell Mary Kay as well. It is really one of the best decisions that I have ever made. And they make it SO easy for you to succeed. I would recommend to anyone. Truly. If you aren't as interested in selling it, but are interested in ordering product to give back to other organizations, that's great too! You can go to my blog that I have dedicated to my business and follow me. This will help keep you updated on all offers that we have going on, the various charities and ministries I will be donating to, and GIVEAWAYS!! I am planning on starting giveaways very soon. And seriously, there is a product for EVERYONE. Once I got done going through all of the products and really learning about them, I was amazed! There is every kind of make-up you could ever need, skin care, body lotions, shower gels, perfume, etc!! It is WONDERFUL. They even have stuff for men too! So if you want to order something for your hubby, boyfriend, or whoever, you can! And I have used Mary Kay and it ROCKS. It is great quality and it lasts. AND (I know, I know, I'm rambling!) if you go to my website there is a Beauty on a Budget section where there are 90 products $10 or UNDER and when you shop online you get....wait for it....FREE SHIPPING! I have to admit that I was really excited about products under $10 and free shipping! Anyway, I wanted to let all of my friends and family who read this blog know about what's going on and how you can be involved. My blog that I have dedicated to my business is: www.be-simply-beautiful.blogspot.com And my Mary Kay website is www.marykay.com/summerwillard
Feel free to ask me ANY questions you have. I'm here to help!!
Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
Ok, so this past week my boys were on Fall Break from school and I did NOT sleep late every day and not cook breakfast until 9 or 10am. Nope, I'm always up with the kids bright and early and have breakfast served by 7:30am! I then did not tell my husband that I was too tired to go to dinner AND a movie on our date night. I mean, I'm only 32 years old and there is no way that I told him that I needed to be home by 9pm so that I could go to sleep! Nope, not this young and vibrant woman! And I most certainly did not crawl back into bed this morning after my kids got on the bus, even though I had a Dr's appointment at 9am this morning. I always plan ahead. And I for sure did not just get my 2 yr. old up and get him dressed keeping him in the shirt that he slept in! Who would do that?! And I certainly didn't go to my Dr's appointment in the shirt that I slept in with just a GAP sweatshirt thrown over it. I'm always presentable and have it all together. I mean, don't you?! And now, it's your turn to be brutally honest! ;)
Well this past month my mom and dad got married! And as a surprise for them, my best friend flew in from TX. for the wedding. This was very special for me and for my mom and dad. You see, Sarah is not just my best friend. She is like my sister. We grew up together, went to high school together, made mistakes together and now are mothers together. She is someone who will always be my best friend, my sister. There are people in this world who you know will always be a part of your life, and she is one of them. So, having her here as a surprise was like my mom and dad having their other daughter here too. And it was wonderful!! I miss her a lot. I pray that we will get to see each other more often and that we can watch our kids hang out and play with each other. There are a lot of things that aren't certain in life, but one thing will ALWAYS be certain for me. I am an extremely blessed woman to have Sarah in my life. I love ya girl!!
I am a 34 year old wife and mother of 4 boys! I am a stay at home mom and became a consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics to earn extra money for my family. But I wanted it to be about more than that. So, I decided to make my business about giving back. I'm going to be working with various charities and ministries to donate a percentage of my proceeds to them. I created Beauty Beyond Measure to connect with other women to let them know what I am doing and to give us a place to talk about beauty, life, giving to others and beyond.
