Our days, much like yours I’m guessing, are typically the same everyday. Our schedule doesn’t vary too much because there are so many parts of owning a business and running a house that are just maintenance. Orders have to ship everyday, product has to be prepared and made, and emails need to be answered. Laundry has to be done, kids need to be fed and the house needs to be picked up. I don’t love the monotony of a schedule and I do really love any opportunity to mix things up. So when we do have a chance to leave the house, I try to make the most of it!
When we go run errands I make it a point to get dressed and wear real clothes and shoes. I make the kids get dressed and I might even make them gel their hair. It just feels good to get ready and get out!
Today we had a meeting with our design firm for our Nickel & Suede store and offices and the whole family basically went along for the ride. Soren, Kesler, Knox, Baker and I all headed downtown and we kind of made a morning of it. Our meeting went well and we approved materials and design elements for the cash wrap and display shelving for our store. It’s really fun to see things coming together and every little step in the process makes it feel a little more real. The kids did a great job coloring, watching shows on my phone and checking out the tools in the workshop while we met with the designers. After we had our meeting we stopped at a nearby park that looked ideal and the kids played with Soren while I nursed in the car. If you can tell from the photo, it wasn’t a fun park at all. 😉
Unfortunately Kesler did have a painful face plant on the slide and that ended our time at the park. It also earned him lunch and ice cream from Wendy’s on the way home. And I wasn’t mad about it because I can’t refuse a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger. Who can?
