Our weekend…

On Friday night I hosted my first Thirty-One party.  It was a lot of preparation, but also a lot of fun!  Now, that I have one show under my belt I feel much more confident and am even ready to get my business up and going.  I have another party booked in February and hopefully a catalog show or two as well.  The new spring products are adorable and reasonably priced.  What more could you ask for?!  If you would like to take a peek at the new spring catalog and/or place an order visit my website at www.mythirtyone.com/lanaoshields.  And remember, if your wish list holds more than your wallet, host a party and you can receive lots of products free and/or at a discounted rate. 

Anyway… here are just a few pics from the night:

In keeping with our theme, A “Soup”er Shopping event, all of the guests were asked to bring their favorite soup recipe to share.  I am planning to type up and distributed all of the recipes with the orders when they come in. DSC_1760

Once the party got underway I wasn’t able to take anymore pics, but I had about 15 friends in attendance.  We had such a fun time eating, socializing, and shopping!  The most stressful part of the entire evening was the check-out, but I have already decided that when possible I will take my laptop and input the orders immediately.  What can I say?  I’m learning along the way…..

After a fun Friday night, Saturday started off on the right foot with a delicious breakfast date with the hubs.  However, during our meal, we received a phone call from Grams and Pop-O that Mackaylan was running a fever and sick.  I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised because we have had tons of students and teachers out sick lately, but I was hoping it would somehow skip over my loved ones.  Then, to make matters worse, on Sunday morning, I woke up with a terrible stomach bug.  I was a little worried about the baby, but she kept moving and I kept trying to keep fluids in my system even though I knew they would eventually find their way back up.  Needless to say, Mackaylan and I stayed in bed all day! Mackaylan still had a low grade fever on Monday and I was very weak so we both stayed home from school. We spent the day sleeping, watching TV, and sanitizing the house. Oh, what fun!

Hey I got a new laptop so I can finally comment! When things calm down in our house I would love to have a party. I have always wanted to do one but never knew anyone. I have done tons of Premier Jewelry, tuppaware, and all but thats it.
