Hey guys! Last week was quite the whirlwind, and to say it was stressful would be an understatement. We don’t actually have the Orange Leaf just yet but very very soon. It has been kind of a nightmare week but hopefully the worst is behind us. I just wanted to give you a little peek inside of what we were up to all week.
Monday morning we dropped Emma Kate off at daycare at 7:00 and then drove straight to Oklahoma. We arrived at 5:30 and made it to Orange Leaf corporate headquarters.
Tuesday morning we signed some papers, and had a full day of classroom and hands on training. But not before a quick run on the treadmill. We were going to run outside but we stepped out and it was raining. Since we have not seen rain since July 4th, we kind of forgot it existed.
Wednesday morning we were up bright and early to open a store ourselves and work. We learned a ton, it was information overload. Everyone was super nice though, and we really enjoyed our training. We also closed the store Wednesday night so we got back to our hotel around 11:30.
Thursday we got to do something pretty cool. Kevin Durant hosts a series of basketball camps at OU, and we got to go help hand out frozen yogurt to the kids at camp. Kevin Durant is a giant. That is all.
We wrapped up our training Thursday afternoon and Bobby and I were exhausted. We went out to dinner and hung out at the hotel before calling it an early night. Friday morning we ran on the treadmills again before heading out of town.
We drove ALL DAY (Dallas traffic is quite the nightmare on a Friday) and got home at 9:30 that night. We crashed pretty soon afterwards, and then were up early to drive to the gulf coast for Bobby’s best friends wedding. (My mom had taken the dog and baby back with her to Louisiana earlier in the week). We drove 3 hours straight down to the lunch time wedding, then after drove 1.5 hours over to my parents house in Louisiana.
We literally felt like we had been around the world! I was happy to see my little chick, she had a great week with grammy and grandpa while we worked.
Sunday morning I went for a very hot and humid run, and after a BBQ lunch, we drove the 3 hours back home.
I am SO TIRED of being in the dang car! Hopefully we are here for good for a long while! Now it’s time to play catch up with my work and prepare to get things at Orange Leaf going. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
QOTD: Do you like road trips/being in the car?
