Pool Partay

Nothing better on a hot summer afternoon than hanging by the pool, eating some BBQ, and enjoying life with some of our best friends!

A dive contest...

...of course, a little football...

...time spent talking about the future...

...just hanging out with friends, making memories!


I realize that I have not updated my blog in almost a year. That is way too long considering the fun life we live. I have given the look an overhaul and will work on filling you in on the last several months of life in the Bell house.

A First For Me

What a great day! We spent the day in Tuscaloosa, AL at the Alabama vs LSU football game. I had never been to a college game in person before...what an experience! (Yes, I know that is really weird for those of you who also grew up in Bham but you have to remember my mom is from England and my dad is from Chicago...We were/are a hockey family #1)

Michael & I arriving at the stadium...
thanks for great parking spot Mom & Dad

Lots of friends, lots of fun memories!

Great memories on a picture perfect day!

Dinner and Dessert

We had a great Friday night with some of our best friends! We enjoyed dinner at Logans and then a yummy dessert bar at Barry and Margo's newly renovated house. After dessert we sat around and talked about our future. Always a fun time hanging with friends who live with a purpose and have VISION! We love you all and are grateful that God has put you in our life.
We had 4 flavors of frozen yogurt and 1 flavor of ice cream...oh and lots of toppings

This caramel cake from Edgar's and frozen yogurt cake from TCBY....really, really good.

Thanks to John and Kristina for serving us guys are great!

A great time with great friends...

A Summertime of Fun

Michael and I had an amazing summer that included family time, the beach, fun with friends, and some work around the house.

We had to have several trees removed in our yard that basically had taken over. Well the removal of 2 large trees in the front led to some much needed yard work - thanks mom and dad for the much needed help!

This is the before (yes, there is a house behind all that!)

and the AFTER

(we had lots of neighbors comment...I think it might have been their nice way of saying "it's about time")

While the yard work was difficult and is certainly not my idea of a fun weekend, I am really pleased with the end result. After the trees were removed we planted some beautiful plants in the front bed and by the mailbox! We also planted a lorapetalum in the large bed...right now it is little but soon it will be huge - these are my favorite!

Now for the real fun - The BEACH!

Michael and I really enjoy the beach and his parents bought a beautiful condo in Panama City Beach last year. We have been able to create some wonderful memories with family and friends and look forward to many more. Here are a couple of pics from this summer...

Michael and I with my parents on the pier...

not that you can tell...but this is Michael...doing something he has always wanted to do...


this is the view from the condo balcony...

and the pool...

on the beach!

Well, that's about all from the summer...but I will update you again soon with Fall Livin'

Love It

Since we last!

Let's see - We had snow in late March, Aunt Maureen and Uncle John visited from England in April, I have completed all of my recitals for the year - too many to count, and we have been to the beach several times. Unfortunately, I lost our camera along the way so I have no pictures to share from any of these events. :(

Right now I am focused on a fun new campaign called LOVE IT! As most of you know, I sell Artistry skin care and cosmetics which I love. Artistry is a top 5 selling prestige brand. The skin care products are botanical and the mineral makeup is hot. I have always been excited and proud to be an Artistry distributor but now more than ever.

Artistry has launched the new Love It campaign and is offering some amazing specials for a limited time! Check out my website and let me know if you have any questions. If you are local, I would be happy to drop some products off to you to sample and if you are at a distance I can mail them.

For my family oversees - check out my website and let me know what you want. I will order it for you and ship it over at no additional cost to you.

I am excited to service you as an Artistry customer and appreciate your support!
