My First Party!!!


Oh my goodness, I can't believe I have not told anyone yet. I signed up with Pampered Chef back in December. I went to a party with out my check book not planning on buying anything and BAM I was sold on the business opportunity! I had my first show last night. I had 13 people show up. It was so much fun hosting my own cooking show! The food even turned out great. It was great to give some cooking tips and show off the really cool products Pampered Chef has. I love my new job. Phil is the best, because he is the one who suggested I get out of the house one or two nights a week and go have some adult conversation. So now he has bonding time with Boston when I'm out having a blast! Also he benefits from the product, no use in selling make up or candles, but cookware-he's all over that! So it's a win win situation!
Wish me luck in my new adventure and if you would like to host a catalog show let me know since I can't come and be your personal pampered chef at your party! Great discounts and free products with doing a catalog show too!
P.S. I'm still going strong with my no sugar, sweets and desserts and loving my new sexy body from the gym!!! I weighed in at 156.8 last night!!! 6 more pounds to go....It's gonna be a great 2008~

You look great and mmmm what fun with pampered chef.

The digital scrapbook site is scrapgirls.com If you sign up for their emails you get freebies daily. I haven't bought anything from them yet because their freebies are enough for me right now.

You need photoshop or paintpro to do this. You can get photoshop as a trial from photoshop.com. I recommend photoshop elements. It's so much more user friendly. Have fun with digital scrapbooking.

Ha! I can totally see you as a pampered chef lady! That's awesome. I love going to those parties (hate having them though, sorry). THere are only 2 HUGE things I want from there, seriously I think I have almost everything else. Between the 20 parties I've gone to and the pampered chef bridal shower I had, I'm set...and a fan.

Great job on getting 13 people show up that is a good turnout. Sorry I didn't call you about my close call I know how you don't like to get late night calls.

Girl you look great! I wish you were here so I would have a workout partner. Keep up the great work!

Ashley & Matt Marx said...

I like your new hair cut.

The party was fun and you had a great turnout. I think that Pampered Chef fits you. I heard that you scheduled at least one party that night. Good for you and good luck!

Miken you are amazing! I love your great attitude! I wish we would have hung out more when you still lived here. Have fun with Pampered Chef

Wow way to go Miken, that is awsome. I bet you are awsome at doing the pampered chef parties. Congrats and good luck!

Hey I am still waiting for your sports bra reenactment pic on Dad's blog.

Nate said...

I guess your talent of cooking for others started in high school. I can still remember all those treats you would make for your friends and not share with your family. P.S. My favorite Pamp. Chef product is the combo spatula/nose hair trimmer, you just have to watch those clippings getting on your pancakes. Love ya

Cooking? What's that?

You are beautiful, BTW.

Congrats on your new biz. However, I have to caution you...any mention of the company's name is in direct violation of the policies and procedures for advertising. Please call the solution center or look under advertising on consultants corner. A friend of mine got contacted by the company about this and was very embarrassed...
