Good bye 2015

Thursday, December 31, 2015
I can hardly believe it is the last day of 2015!  I hope you all have had a wonderful year filled with the Grace of our Loving Heavenly Father.  We have seen God work in wondrous ways.  We are thankful for every joy and trial along the way to make us more like Him!
Dale and I are still vacationing in AZ with my sister and her hubby.  We started out yesterday with a workout at the gym and pool - some of us were more sore in the morning than others,  but doing it all together made it fun!
After that we decided to go to Tortilla Flat.  Rich heard that the saloon there was famous for their hamburgs. After a 2 hour ride AND THEN a 40 minute ride up a winding, narrow mountain we finally arrived. The funny part is - it is called The Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine.  With Dale and Rich both being dutch, as well as the majority of my community, it struck a funny bone.

Along the winding path there is beautiful scenery.  The landscape is peppered with a variety of Cactus.  And we stopped occasionally to get a photo.  
These are the 2 handsome dudes that we get to spend our time with!!
The point of destination is only about the length of a football field and people were flocking in to eat at this unique restaurant. 
The walls are "papered" with dollar bills.  Rich counted that on this one wall alone there must have been $1,500.00.
 It is like an old west town, but the size of a small outdoor mall strip.
There is a cute gift shop where I picked up post cards to send to the kids, and a treat shop with yummy ice creams AND - their specialty Prickly Pear Gelato.  I was the only one that dared to try the Prickly Pear Gelato and boy is it yummy!  What is Prickly Pear?  It is the fruit that grows on this style cactus
Here is how they will look come spring time when the fruits blossom (photo from on google) I would hate to be the one who harvests these fruits, let alone peeling them.
The gelato tasted something like a blend of strawberry and raspberry - YUM!  Others say it is a blend of bubblegum and watermelon.  Either way - I'm hoping to find some more locally during our stay here.
Then there was the winding narrow mountain road to go back down the opposite way, but this time on dirt roads that had a washboard effect - bump, bump, bump for at least 1 hour!  Yikes! so thankful when the roads turned to pavement, but the scenery was absolutely worth it!
Here is a reminder of the VACATION SPECIAL that I am having while I am away!
Just as I promised, I am having a special deal for all of you while I am on vacation. I have noticed that the one thing you all like best is FREE SHIPPING - so here you go!!
*When you place a minimum $50.00 on line order, I will reimburse you the shipping cost when I arrive home.  Be sure to NOT check the NO CONTACT box or I will not be able to contact you. My previous special remains through January 4th when the Year End Sale ends... Place a minimum $35.00 order and you will get a package of 5 hand stamped greeting cards.  (just keep in mind - in order to get in on the FREE SHIPPING your order needs to be a minimum $50)

Today is the last day of December, therefore the last day of 2015, therefore it is the last day to 
use this HOSTESS CODE: PVGSWS6T   If your order is over $150.00 then do not use the Hostess Code because you will receive the Stampin' Rewards for yourself (10% of sales) - Sounds like a good deal! 10% of Free product and free shipping from me.
On January 1st I will be posting a new HOSTESS CODE. 
*We will be gone through January 7th so that is how long I will run this special.
Want more bang for your buck?  Sale a bration starts on January 5th and for every $50 order, you get to choose one FREE item from the Sale a bration brochure.  I will post those links when they are available.
BUT if you don't want to miss out on the Year End Sales and the great products in the Holiday Catalog, you will want to get those purchases made by January 4th.
*I will keep this at the beginning of each days post so you won't miss out on my vacation deal.
I added an extra incentive: Everyone who places a minimum $50 on line order until January 7th will go into a drawing to win a December Paper Pumpkin Kit. Check my previous post to see the video on the December Paper Pumpkin Kit.
Thanks for stopping by!
