What's it like?

I am sure some of you are wondering what exactly goes on in those months before opening your own store. I wondered, and now, we are right in the thick of things.

It is mostly good.

And it is mostly done by my husband.

But the responsibilities have gotten to a fever pitch. He has around 20-30 things on his "to-do" list on any given day.

It might look like this.
Rent Truck for trailer,
Pick up trailer,
take trailer to wrap guy,
Wrap guy takes measurements,
take trailer back to storage lot,
call Papa Murphy's marketing dept about wrap,
Call contractor,
Call Marketing People,
Order flyers for wife's marketing event,
Proof flyers,
Call insurance lady about trailer,
Go to DMV,
Register Trailer,
Return more urgent phone calls,
order wares for the store,
order signs for the store,
order more stuff for the store,
return a million phone calls,
field questions from you wife about what is happening and when,
schedule grand opening events,
schedule VIP night events,
order stuff for said events,
clear all of the events your wife is scheduling,
decide whether or not she is crazy,

blah, blah, blah, blah.
Yeah, that is all in a day.

I should have had him make this list, because I am sure that is not the 1/2 of it. I just try to stay out of his way.

I think I am doing a semi-good job at that.

I'm not gonna lie. It is exciting. Especially now that we are getting closer. And closer and CLOSER!!!!

I can't wait to see it all come to fruition. Months and months and months of planning and talking, and finding a site, and signing contracts and finding contractors and on and on and on. We are about 30 days out, and I can't wait! I am sure you have questions, if you do, please feel free to ask them!

I will post more pictures as we get closer!

Good luck with all the craziness. We love Papa Murphy's. It has saved me many times throughout the years in getting dinner on the table.
