my random friday thoughts...

...i saw the FUNNIEST sight yesterday - there was this jeep next to me at a stop light and on it was an ad for "ask me about weight loss/smoking ear staple" which i thought to mean some sort of device stapled to your ear that helps you to stop smoking or lose weight - i pulled up next to the driver and i saw this woman (who was puffing away at a cigarette). i cracked up a bit about it...

...onto business. i can't believe CHA LV is only 3 weeks away! wow, where has the time gone? i remember our first CHA in Dallas in 2004. we had this tiny 4' x 6' table and about oh 40 products. and my DH and friend had built this portable peg board that was like 4 feet tall and 6 feet wide. and no one seemed to be able to meet our $50 minimums b/c we had so few products! LOL! how could we have grown from THAT to where we are now. the Good Lord is looking out for us for sure...

... going to trade shows seems always to be like a first date of sorts - i can't explain it. it is like starting over again and seeing if your customers still like you and if you will have a second date, etc, etc. it never is easy... speaking of easy - i found some cool jeans yesterday which have patches of tearing that i will weave our new ribbons into - we will see how that goes. i thought i got a size that would fit me but i am not sure anymore how much weight i will gain in the next 3 weeks - i might have to just hang them in the booth if my belly gets a lot bigger...

... with that i wanted to say TGIF... wait til next week when we show some more goodies we have planned!
