Wow, I can't seem to get to my computer lately. I've been so busy I haven't been able to get a look at the computer much less turn it on. It's only been 17 days since my last day of worked and it has flown by! There has been so much going on, it's truly unbelievable. We'll start at the beginning and make it in bullets so we don't have a ridiculously long post.

- Unpacking! Tons and tons of unpacking and organizing and I'm still not done. There has been so much to do and it's been nice taking my time doing it. I've always hated moving and trying to fit things in the couple hours at night or the short weekend.

- Trip to the Jersey Shore. We went to Ocean Grove, NJ with my family the Sunday after the Fourth of July and had so much fun. Hubby had never been there before but I spent my summers growing up here. It was nice to show him where some of my childhood memories were made.

- Camping trip with his family. It was mostly cousins but some of the aunts and uncles came as well as his parents and we had a blast. The weather was great - no bugs! Nice and warm (but not too warm) during the day and chilly enough at night to put on a sweatshirt and sit around the campfire. We made s'mores, played games and swam in the lake. Great memories were made and we plan on doing it again next year.

Here comes a big one...

-We're opening up a salon! Hubby is a master stylist for many years now but took a five year hiatus. He's been interested in getting back into it but nothing seemed like the right time. We over the past few months everything has fallen into place. We found a great little store two blocks from our house in a perfect intersection that we have been remodeling now for about a week. It was completely empty when we signed the lease but a lot needs to be done. I've been taking pictures along the way and will create a post to show everyone the transformation process. We're so excited and this is what has been taking up a great deal of my time. That and finally getting some QT with hubby. It's nice that we're on the same sleeping schedule again :)

-Trip to Florida. Which is where I am now. Probably the reason why I have the time now to finally get a post out. It's been nice spending some time with my family even if drama has ensued occasionally. Well that person is gone now and we can all have fun! I have a couple more days (leaving on Sunday) with my dad, step-mom and two step-brothers (that are like my own) here in St. Petersburg before I head down to Naples/Ft. Myers area to visit my mom and my grandparents and the rest of the family. I'll be there until next Wed. when I head home. I'm actually really looking forward to going home (sad, I know) since we have so much to do wth the business. I'm going to try and get some work done from here next week - lots of phone calls to make!

I'm pretty sure that's it for now. I've been taking tons of pictures from everything we do, I just have to fnd a little time to get everything in order. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!!!

P.S. Athena is doing great! Definitely enjoying her summer and new home. She's very excited to have Mommy home more often to play and lounge around with. She wasn't able to come down with my, she's at home with the hubby (who also couldn't come down either. Some on had to stay and work :P). I miss her so much!
