Simply Stated

Happy Weekend!

Hey friends…it’s AnnMarie writing our weekly round up this weekend.

So the weather in North Carolina is craaaazy at this time of year.

Last week it was freezing and this week it’s like summer.

Sunny and 80! And we’re loving it!!

Although it is springtime so the pollen is insane around here…everything is covered in a thick yellow film.

How’s the weather by you? Starting to feel like spring?

We’re headed to Madison, Indiana next week for the Social Gathering Retreat where we’ll be mentors and taking headshots of all the attendees.

Well, Anne will be taking the headshots and I’ll be getting everyone set up at the location and looking perfect…not a hair is out of place.

Anyway here are some random thoughts for you this morning…

  1. I was excited to hear that the college basketball season ended this week with Baylor defeating Gonzaga. It wasn’t that I really cared who won it, just that it wouldn’t be the only thing on the tv every night in our house. Well, I was promptly informed by my husband when I asked if March Madness was now over that yes it was…but now it was baseball season. Oh yeah! Go METS!
  2. Do you pack ahead of time when you travel? I usually don’t pack until the day before but I’m headed out of town this weekend with Emma for a dance convention and won’t be home until late Sunday night. And Anne and I leave for Indiana on Monday morning so I have no choice to plan ahead. Send help!
  3. Woman’s retreats are good for your business and your soul. Getting away with like-minded, hard-working, self-employed women recharges and motivates us. If you have any questions about the Social Gathering Retreat just ask us!

Speaking of hard work…that’s exactly what we did getting ready to be away next week.
