This past weekend was  go, go go. But a good go. An AMAZING go, actually.

I hate I had to miss The Chapel Market, but I was super  EXCITED to take a much needed, quick getaway with my team (well, part of them). We missed Sharon, Brittany and Andrea. Do you know how hard it is to get 6 people together at the same time?

Brian, Laura, Cody and I headed out bright and early Saturday Morning. We call this selfie “linesonlinesonlines”.  YES! I am stuffing my face with Jelly Beans. Oh and In case your wondering who that fella in the bottom left hand corner is… that’s Laura Jeans husband. He is probably one of the most selfless people I have ever met. #youdidgoodlaura IMG_1173 There were only 3 rules for our Six Flags Trip. 1.) No Cussing 2.) If you see Bugs Bunny, STOP. We have to take a photo 3.) No complaining about the lines…. It’s an amusement park.

Every thing was broken, literally. We rode 4 things the entire day. By 4:00 we were tired of hearing “This ride is closed due to technical difficulties”.  2014-10-27_0013 Ohhhh! I almost forgot to mention… Laura isn’t a big fan of coasters. She might have cried after we got off of that wooden one. It was a little rough, not even gonna lie.

After a horrifying wooden coaster experience we had to make a pit stop for a few snacks. I chose a funnel cake. Always. You can’t go wrong. Is it possible to mess up a funnel cake? Laura and Brian opted for soft pretzels and of course Laura bought the last pretzel so we literally waited for 15 minutes so Brian could satisfy his craving. This is his “Where’s My D*** Pretzel” face. Doesn’t he like like a grown little kid waiting patiently for a pretzel and cheese sauce?!  IMG_1112 Speaking of Brian…. I knew in the back of my mind it was “Fright Fest”, but I had no idea it started so early in the day. I could’ve done without the fog machines at two o’clock in the afternoon. Brian’s fear of zombies and scary things might be a little more extreme than LJ’s coaster fear. It’s not funny, but it is. You should have seen him when that old crazy lady zombie shook her coke can at him. #hysterical

Our day of long lines, people watching and cigarette smoke finally came to an end. We stopped for a group photo, hot nuts and juicy fruit before heading back to Montgomery. Most awkaward pose award, 1st Place goes to Brian. IMG_1103 On our way out of ATL we made a quick detour at Ikea (my sister better be grateful). I might have picked up my few things for the office too. Since I wasn’t up for swedish meatballs for dinner, we stopped elsewhere. Laura being the only gal this trip we let her pick dinner… She wanted soup but ordered roast. Service was yucky, my food was cold but hopefully Donald left with a smile on his face.  That Laura Jean knows how to make someone feel like they’re worth a million bucks.  IMG_1183

The car ride home might have my favorite part of the day, well aside from the 34 different Football games that we were listening to at the same time. How to you guys do it? I HATE FOOTBALL. Snuggly Blankets, fluffy pillows,  stinky feet, Target Lady and YouTube Videos. We laughed until we couldn’t laugh anymore. I know you’ve heard it a thousand times but I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am for my team. In the early stages of my business I came to the realization that I couldn’t do everything on my own. It took a while, but I finally found that team of people that EVERY business owner dreams of. A trip Six Flags could never express the amount of gratitude I have for you guys, but just incase you needed to hear it again, know that I am not only blessed to work with you, but I’m even more blessed to call you friends.

    If only Cracker Barrel had Chic Fil A chicken tortilla soup…. then I would’ve gotten soup.

    You’re so lucky to have LJ on your team! What a great asset to have such a sweet, bright, and genuine person to work with. Also, what adds the icing to the cake, she’s amazing at everything she does! Her and Cody both are so much fun and a wonderful couple. Looks like you had some great company on your trip! I hope you guys had a blast!

  3. Love seeing all your creations!!
