It’s an Usborne Pineapple Party!

Oh, friends! What a YEAR we’ve had!

It’s time to CELEBRATE at the Usborne National Convention!

If you’re a Pineapple, join me for an exclusive team party Friday night at SkyZone, a Tulsa trampoline park! We’ll jump on our own private court and enjoy pizza and waaaay too much ice cream! Eeeeek! This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!Pineapple Party at SkyZone

Be sure to let me know if you’ll be joining us! I can’t wait to party with you!

Not a Pineapple? Been thinking about Usborne, but you just haven’t taken the plunge yet?

What’s stopping you, friend?!

We have ZERO minimums, TONS of fun, and the great privilege of sharing amazing children’s books with families across the US!

Please let me know if you have any questions; I’d love to help you discover if Usborne would be a good fit for you and your family. Click here to message me on Facebook.

And for all of my Pineapples, I’ll see YOU very soon!



I’ve Earned the Usborne Books & More Trip to Disney World!

Aahhh!! We DID it, friends!

Thank you SO much for your support and encouragement this year! 2016 has certainly been a WILD ride, and this incentive trip is the icing on the cake! Take a look:

Disney World is WHY I became an Usborne consultant almost 3 years ago; it’s become our happy place! Click here to read more about the beginning of my Usborne adventure.


This will be second trip with Usborne (I earned the Western Caribbean cruise last year, but couldn’t go because my girls’ schools started that week). Click here or below to check out my Usborne Ireland trip (yes, IRELAND!)!


This trip, however, is going to extra special because…

I’m not taking the KIDS!

Yes, yes, yaaaaaas!

Since we use our Usborne money to take the kids to Disney each year anyway (our next family trip is in Feb.!), my husband and I are using this incentive trip as our 10-year anniversary celebration!

Y’all, can you even IMAGINE how AWESOME this trip is going to be?!

And it’s fa-REEEEEE!

Usborne is paying for our hotel, 6-day Park Hopper passes, private night at Typhoon Lagoon, and we get $1,200 to play with!

I. love. my job!

And I also love my incredible team (Go, Pineapples!), and YOU, for your support this year! This wouldn’t have happened without the generous love and support from my hostesses and customers. Thank you SO much, friends!

My husband and I are SO excited to see Disney in a whole new way, and we’ve already started planning!

Things we will NOT do on our Usborne trip to Disney World in July:

  • Meet princesses
  • Ride the Ariel ride
  • Meet princesses
  • Use a stroller
  • Meet princesses
  • watch Beauty & the Beast Live on Stage
  • anything having to do with Frozen

Things we WILL do on the Usborne trip:

  • Stay up late and watch the fireworks (and then SLEEP IN)!
  • Ride Tower of Terror!
  • Eat a turkey leg and walk, stroll really, whereEVER we want to go!
  • Ride the Aerosmith rollercoaster!
  • Explore Disney Springs!
  • take the Backstage Magic tour and see the underground UTILIDORS!


Earning a company trip is always mind-blowing, and the fact that I get to take my husband on this once-in-a-lifetime getaway on Usborne’s dime is almost too much! If you’ve ever thought about giving Usborne a try, just do it! You NEVER know what might come out of it! I never DREAMED it would be such a blessing to my family!

New catalogs and over 100 NEW books are coming out in January, so the new year is a great time to test the waters! Click here or below for my book biz FAQs to see if this might be a good fit for your family.


I’d love for you to join me on Facebook, too! We have a lot of fun over there with my weekly LIVE show, exclusive sneak peeks, Wednesday sales, and giveaways! Click here or below to become a part of the Usborne Book Barn community!


Again, thank you so much for your support, friends! I’m absolutely thrilled and honored to be your book lady, and I can’t wait to serve you in 2017!



Christmas Giveaway – My Secret Weapon that Every Mama Needs in her Purse!

I have many things in my purse that can be considered my secret weapon (pepper spray, stun gun – we have to protect ourselves, friends! Have you seen the news?!), but, the ‘secret weapon’ that I’m most excited about is the one that gets my kiddos quiet! Yes, you know I love my girls, but not everyone in the doctor’s office or McDonald’s needs to hear them singing. So… in comes my handy dandy secret weapon! Click here or below to take a look!

You can make your own secret weapons with a pack of the cards, metal ring, marker, and hole punch, like this:

My Usborne Ireland Trip!

My first goal with working with Usborne Books & More was to take our family to Disney World! God has provided for us, in that we can pay our bills, but there isn’t a lot of ‘wiggle room.’ I knew that if I wanted to make my dream of seeing The Mouse come true, we’d have to get creative.
A year and a half ago, that’s exactly what happened.
In March of 2014, I joined Usborne Books & More with a dream of taking my family on a vacation (we’d never been on one). In January of the following year, God made that a reality!
