Well hey there, long time no chat. Life has been just so crazy for the past six weeks. And it's definitely about to get even crazier.
First, I wanted to share a few photos from our overnight trip to Great Wolf Lodge New England on Easter weekend. We decided to surprise Austin for his 5th birthday with a stay at the lodge. They have a giant indoor waterpark, so we knew he would just love it. And he did. He started saying how badly he didn't want to leave the minute we'd checked in!
Great Wolf was amazing. It is expensive, for sure, but as regular Disney visitors, we're kind of used to that. But you do get passes to the water park from 1pm the day of checking until closing the day of checkout. They also did a free Easter egg hunt for the kids, free pictures with the Easter bunny, and they had a free rope course Austin could do (as he wasn't quite tall enough for the big one). They've got an arcade, fun adventure type games, all kinds of different activities in the lobby. We actually played mini golf too. There's a ton of things to do besides the water park. But oh, the water park. It was amazing! There were only two rides my 43" little buddy couldn't go on. And there were plenty of really big rides he could. We especially enjoyed the huge family raft water slide. And Austin has asked many times already if we can go back for his birthday next year.
Here are a few photos from our trip:
So the majority of the past six weeks have been spent on setting up my own business. As you know I signed on to be a LuLaRoe consultant and the journey has been so exciting. It took me about 6.5 weeks until I received the much anticipated onboarding call (and I literally shrieked out loud when I received it!), so I've been working on all the things I need to do to prepare. I've been practicing inventory photos, doing tons of research, ordering clothing racks and all the other supplies I need. I've been stocking up on shipping supplies and I've made an appointment with a CPA. It has been a whirlwind, but it has been so much fun.
This morning I finally received my shipping notification for my initial inventory! I am so excited! If anyone would like to learn more about LuLaRoe, I'd love for you to join my Facebook group. I've got lots of giveaways going on now leading up to my launch party! https://www.facebook.com/groups/lularoemelissawhittaker/
And random life updates - work is...work. That's all I can really say there. I haven't been reading as much as I would like to have been, but I did finally get my pre-order for the 5th book in the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day yesterday! I am hoping to go back and read books 1-4 first.
Austin's starting kindergarten in the fall, which is...ahhh...he's growing up too fast.
We're looking forward to our next Disney trip very soon! I cannot wait! My last vacation was spent connected to work because of all the craziness with my company being acquired, so I'm very excited to be able to completely disconnect from the world.
Other than that, we're just hoping for spring to get here and stay! We'd been teased with some really nice warm weather and them bam, snow this week. And it's super cold! Someone please tell Mother Nature it's April! :)
I hope you guys have been well!
