HELLO, its been a while since I have updated the blog…. basically running several stores is not as glamourous as it may seem and I have been running around like crazy!! We opened up fortuity in Columbia, MO and I AM SOOOO EXCITED! With that came a brand new computer system we had to buy because our old system is out dated— that meant I had to research, learn, implement a whole new system in about two weeks.. I had not planned on this and basically wanted to rip my hair out, ha! Now it is all good and the store is running smoothly, thanks to our great employees 🙂

After that was done we had a new website we were remodeling— again I wanted to pull my hair out, but it is sooo much better, easier to use, and it looks amazing!! I am so excited to share it all with you! http://www.fortuityusa.com re-opens today at noon and we have amazing deals going on ONLY FOR 24 hours!

I also have a birthday coming up next week ( it’s always during the busiest time of year so I never really do much). During school it was always during Rush week for recruitment and now its during our work “RUSH” week haha! This year I decided I wanted to throw myself a double birthday bash with my best friend Afton, to celebrate our last 4 years in our twenties… a Crab Boil it is! Hopefully, we will be able to make it out after eating so much, ha!

I love this pineapple wine bottle from http://www.manoswine.com and I will definitely have it featured at our birthday!! It will go perfect with a crab boil!
