One Long Week

Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Roasted Almond, German Chocolate Cake, Very Berry and Peach.

Today, the yogurt is buy one, get one free from 6 PM to 8 PM (limit one, excludes XL).

On Sunday, the special is Coke Float Day. All coke floats are $2.99 all day long (regularly $4.62).

With the weather and the busted water main and everything else that has taken place, this has been one interesting week. Thankfully, I've been able to get some things accomplished despite the distractions. In fact, I feel pretty good looking back on the week.

Over the next few weeks, you will get a chance to meet several of our new employees as our staff is turning over for the new semester. We currently have two new staff members and are planning to add two more. If you see a new face, please take a moment to say hello. They look forward to getting to know you.

The wedding plans are proceeding smoothly with just a few minor bumps here and there. But, we are taking those in stride because these are bound to happen. It's good to be flexible since all of the major things are now in place for the big day. We also got half of the honeymoon set up. It should be a very nice start to a wonderful life.
