#Blogyourbrand #lotionbarcafe #makeitfizz colorado local soap Soapy Time Uncategorized

For those of you that are wondering what the tour was all about here is a recap: We drove and taught on the east coast classes based off my book  Make it Fizz and I am sharing the journey with you. Day 1 Day 2 of #blogyourbrand Wow this was a major planning thing. We made a budget,booked our hotels,places to stay, arranged teaching venues figured out gas mileage,food and anything extra we would need to plan for. Talk about a crazy accordion file folder packed with all of our info and have to keep with you at all time. We had no idea how many toll roads there were out there and I think we hit all of them lol. Our summer tour began on May 31st, we had flown from Colorado Springs, Colorado to Mobile, Alabama. I purchased a car from Toyota (my mom works there and gets an amazing discount) so we shipped supplies to two of our stops. One of our boxes never made it and is still gone to this day.That part is a bummer it had a bunch of my tools in it, but what can you do? We flew into Dallas and our flight was canceled and had to stay the night. Thankfully my friends live in Dallas and picked us up and we got to stay with them. Thanks George and Theresa!

(mom, grandma and aunt) for two days there seeing family and loading the car. While Lexi went to the beach and hung out with her sister.  My mom and I tried to find supplies that was missing from the lost box. We did pretty good we found a restaurant supply place that had some of the items. We went bowling with Megan (lexi's sister) and had a great time catching up.

We realized we lost on of the new keys, well at least that is what we thought. We had to go back to my moms and started unloading car. I did not think it was smart to leave both keys together so I was going to give one set to Lexi to hold on to. Smart right? lol . We did find the key I had already had separated it and put in my computer bag where my camera and computer was. Oh boy great start to a trip right? LOL we can laugh now about it. We did make it back to see my friend T.A Helton owner of Coffee House Suds for a latte and to show her how to use Periscope*, It was fun we exchanged some soaps and bubble bars and of course had coffee at a local coffee shop Carpe Diem they have some amazing beans. It was great seeing her, we always have a great time. Before we headed out I signed two books for the Alabama Candle and Soap gathering and said our goodbyes.I did not want to leave my family yet but we had to get to Perry , Ga to set up we had our first class the next morning and it is a 6 hour drive. Tomorrow I will talk about our visit in Georgia.
