Bear Lake Fun! Who knows what a chicken splat is?

I grew up going to Bear Lake.  It is half in Utah and half in Idaho.  The things I love about it are how it stays shallow for a long way out and it is super clear.  The things I don't love about it is since it is in the mountains, it is pretty chilly most of the year and because of the elevation, I have had some of the nastiest sunburns in my life from the beaches of Bear Lake!!!  So, needless to say, Bear Lake brings out the sunscreen nazi in me.  I am training my kids and a few of them have caught on.  Especially my 9 year old, fair skinned, freckled, little red head, Melanie.  She puts it on even before I can remind her.  It is wonderful!

We try to go on a Bradshaw Family vacation every year.  I am the oldest of 5 kids and so far, we have blessed my parents with 17 grandchildren.  So, we need a big place to stay.  Our good friends the Ballinghams have a great cabin that we have reserved every 24th of July from here til the end of time!  That way no one can have an excuse about not being able to have the time off, etc.  This year was the first year we have stayed here and it was tricky finding a weekend that worked but we managed to pull it off and had a great time!  Families just came and went as they could.  

Cute cousins!  Emmy, Lilly and Avi.   Our beautiful 17 year old daugther
 Whitney and her best friend Jess slept outside
 on the large deck.  It was gorgeous weather!  

Our 12 year old Kaitlyn!  My sister Ali, her hubby Jer and their two cuties, Emmy and Avi.

I love when he laughs really hard.  It makes me so happy!  

I of course had to bring my fun Younique make-up and did make-overs on all the little girls!
They returned the favor and did my make-up too!  Lucky, huh?

Make-overs by three year olds are the best!

The kids played games and got their faces painted.

Avi loved her facepaint!

Chicken Splat! 


Lilly loved her face paint too!  This game above was called the "Chicken Splat".  It was the funniest game I have ever seen!  There was a big grid type board.  You paid 50 cents and put your name on one of the squares.  They laid it down and had everyone surround it.  They let a chicken go on the board and where ever it goes poop, that is the winner!  I think the prize was a $250 gift certificate!  Too bad no one in my family won!  Maybe next year, huh?

Whitney and Jess!

I gave my sis Ali a Younique make-over.  Doesn't it make her eyes pop?  She is gorgoeus!  We used Frivilous for her concealer color.  On her eyes we used Confident, Sexy and Curious!  Here eyeliner is Devious mixed with Rose Water.  We also used Confident on her lips.

My cute Dad took Lilly and Emmy out because I was too big of whimp in the cold water.  Our daughter Janessa is a natural with babies.

To the left, our cute family friend Annie!

Below, Jeremy making breakfast!  Yummy pancakes!

It was a GREAT TRIP!  Can't wait for next year!  

My Younique News of the week!  

October 1st was our 1 year anniversary!  

What an amazing first year it has been!  

Younique is growing like crazy!!!  We had 459 Presenters join the Younique Family in the month of September!  That brings us to a total of 2,273 Presenters as of Monday of this past week. We sold $618,629.83 in September!  That is a lot of product!  

 That's nearly 100% growth over August which was a

 50% improvement over July!  We are caught up in

 the vortex of momentum and its so much fun to see. 

 Companies just don't grow this fast once they get up 

in these higher numbers, right?  Wrong!  We are

 proving a lot of industry trends wrong and we are 

going to go right on breaking records!  


I am the very first Presenter of the company so you would 

be on my team and I would be SO honored!  We are known 

as the Younique First Ladies!  We have so much fun as a team

 and the support and cheering each other on is awesome!  It

 is so exciting to watch each other succeed!  It is only $99.00

 to get started so seriously, what are you waiting for!  SIGN

 UP TODAY!!!  LOOK at all the make-up

that comes in your kit!  
I am super jealous, actually!  It is a killer deal!
