|Not my picture, but a good representation of the storm|
Friday morning, June 10, the kids and I piled into the car again, by 8am this time, and we drove from Wichita KS to Loveland CO. It would have been a rather excellent trip were it not for the fact that Collin kept me up the WHOLE night. So I was horribly exhausted. I drank too much caffiene, ate too much sugar and then drank one of those awful 5 hour energy drinks just to get me the last 4 hours. I felt like throwing up the entire drive and the last little while was by far the worst. Luckily, we made it safe and in one piece and without actually falling asleep at any point in the drive. Loveland, in case you don't know is a small city about an hour north of Denver. It is also home to my sister and her family. I was so happy to get to spend nearly a FULL week with them and loved every minute of it! My sister is someone I don't spend enough time with too, and it was a much needed visit.
While there, I got to see my sisters awesome new shop that she and her friend just opened, called Cherry Lime Boutique. It is the cutest little store. It has a bunch of different vendors in it, and they sell the cutest stuff. If you are ever in the area, you definitely need to check them out. I also got to experience her other business, Party in My Kitchen. So I know I have blogged about it before, but I have to really tell you about this business. She is working on building a consultant group all around the nation. It works similar to a tupperware party, where the consultant comes in to a Host's home and together the host, their friends (up to 4 friends) and the consultant put together 20 meals for each of the families. They are stored mostly in freezer baggies, but some in casserole dishes and fit perfectly on a shelf in your freezer. It is the most genius thing I have ever seen. It was so much fun putting the meals together (sadly, for other people). I only wish I didn't live so far away and could have brought a freezer full of food home for me too! Anyway, she is looking at getting consultants that want to learn the process and make money, and meet new people and all the fun stuff. Everyone leaves the party with food for the month. So it isn't like you are trying to sell anything. I am still trying to figure out if I have the time to fit it into my schedule to be a consultant--Because I loved it! Anyway, if you are interested in being a consultant, go to the website and contact her! She'd love to talk to you more about it!
I also got to just spend time with my sister and her kids. It was wonderful. Now I have to figure out how to do the same with the rest of our families! :)
Sadly, our trip did have to come to an end. On June 16, the kids and I packed the car back and headed out. We made the drive from Loveland CO to Wichita KS and stayed the night again with our friends the Brobergs. We got to hang out a little longer in the morning. BUt about 10:00 we made our way out drove the last 3 hours home.
