Today, I have to hit the ground running.
Somehow, I got roped into doing a Juicy Juice House Party. I don't even remember how I got signed up to do this. (Ed. note - she gets tipsy and signs up for shit online).
The House Parties are popular right now. Apparently, lots of companies are looking for ways to spread the word about their products, so they offer the opportunity to host "parties" to individuals.
The company in question (in my case - Juicy Juice) then sends the host a package of their product samples, plus goodie bag treats, etc. This way, the company can get the word out in a relatively cheap manner. The hosts of the parties do all the work - by inviting their friends (in my case - Sissy's playgroup) and "advertise" the product.
So, I'm going to order some pizzas and the juice is in the fridge chillin'. They sent me 8 full containers of their newest product - their Immunity and Brain Booster juices.
I already buy their Harvest Surprise juice - because it contains 100% full days serving of fruits and vegetables in a 8 oz glass - or something like that. And, we all know Sissy doesn't eat well (unless it's dumpster diving) and she certainly doesn't like ANY vegetable, so that's one way I sneak it into her little bossy body.
They also sent me reusable plastic bottles (like the kind you can put a beverage in to take along, not like baby bottles), mini decks of playing cards, reusable shopping bags, growth charts, coloring books and coupons for their product.
I put the goodie bags together last night, which is why this is late this morning.
The Evil Twin helped me arrange the dining room to accommodate more guests - our table has a hidden leaf in the middle, but it definitely takes two people to pull the table apart to set it up. However, we now have seating for six, plus a few extra stools and of course, the couch and love seat in the den (living room area), so I think I can comfortably seat lots of moms and tots today.
Unfortunately, it's only 40 degrees right now and not supposed to be above the mid 50s at the high today AND the forecast is calling for rain (more of it!!!!), so we won't be able to play outside - and we have such a nice backyard too! Wah!
Speaking of, my cotton rope hammock snapped a rope, so I had to order a new one. I found the same product, only in a synthetic at the same place I ordered the first one. It was on sale and free shipping and it should be here tomorrow!
Just in time, too because we're supposed to have a beautiful weekend!
I hope you all have a fabbo Hump Day. I KNOW I will. ;-)
