Have you ever had a week where everything seemed just a bit off? I feel like I accomplished so much, but yet nothing at all. So strange! Every day I wanted to come on here and do a few posts, but before I knew it something would get in the way and a post never happened. My hours have been all over the place this week too. I have been meeting with people, learning lots and with the kids on summer break been that taxi and pool mom. Which means I have been waking up working then taking care of kids then working all night til about 9 or 10pm. It makes the days seem so much longer! Never mind what Juan is doing. He is trying to make headway at the office. We have one room about 90% done, now we have another room, bathroom and entry ways left to go. We started with the hardest room, so I am hoping the rest is a bit easier from here. But he has been coming home around midnight most nights this week. I have no idea how he is functioning at work. Somehow he is still maintaining his workout schedule. Me on the other hand.... Well I think I worked out 3 times in May! No bueno!! I need to get my butt back in gear FAST!
I think I need to figure out what the summer schedule will be while the kids are off. It seems to throw everything off a bit, and I'm sure once I get in a groove, they will be back at school! LOL!
This weekend should prove to be an interesting weekend. Today will be filled with more office work, orthodontist appts and then this evening I head to Orlando. Neiman Marcus has invited the FL Beauty Bloggers to a breakfast of sorts where they will show us all the wonderful things the beauty dept at Neiman's has to offer. I am so looking forward to this! But I'm not looking forward to an early morning drive to Orlando, so I'm spending the night there tonight instead. Then Monday I am off to Premiere Orlando which is the biggest hair, spa, nail show for salon professionals. I will have the pleasure of meeting with NailPro Magazine, Launchpad and I believe Nails Magazine as well! I really wanted a booth at Premiere, but I would have to sell so much just to break even, that I go into panic mode when I think about it. I so want to plan for this for next year and go. I wish I could talk to other polish companies so I would know if I was right or wrong or how it all works. I am just so scared to jump in, but at the same time I think this is the direction we need to take as our next step. So this year I will be there doing as much research as I can.

I actually met an amazing nail tech this week. When I say we clicked as soon as we met, I am not kidding! She is living my dream! Yes I still have a desire to be a nail tech. She was so inspiring and knows so much about the industry. I could FEEL her passion just talking to her! She gave me some amazing advice and once she opens her new salon in Orlando, you bet I will be letting you all know so you can experience her amazingness for yourself if you ever come to the Orlando area! I hope to meet some more amazing techs at Premiere. I just don't know how that would happen. But if you are a nail tech and going to Premiere or know a nail tech going, let me know, I would love to meet you!
