We were so busy all weekend long. We've got a list of repairs and renovations, along with a list of ideas to tackle. There's something very satisfying about crossing something off of one of those lists.
If you're following the Instagram account @magnoliahouse42066, then you might have seen some sneak peeks there. I'm trying to get some pics posted to the Renovations page as well. It's a rough week of waiting until Brian has some free time. After 20 years of marriage, the gender lines and divisions of labor are firmly established: I don't touch his tools and he stays out of my arts and crafts supplies. ;)
In terms of vendors, we got our spa candles ordered and placed the first order for one of the retail skincare lines. I'm very excited about both of those! We have a few odds and ends on the shelves- no spoilers because I'm going to do another contest soon. The next steps are the business license (tomorrow!), registering for my MBLEX (registering tomorrow, testing soon!), speaking with a local business owner about the uniforms (tomorrow), and trying to make some progress on the fire escape issue.
