Happy (belated) 2010!

Where has the time gone? It almost seems too late to say happy new year—but Happy New Year!

2010 is already going by way too fast. My apologies for not posting sooner. To give you an idea of why, it’s almost 10:00 at night, and we’re still here at the office preparing for Thursday night’s event.

It’s our first big one of the year, a new feature for us, our Mix It Up! business-to-business event. It’s to get businesspeople together to network and do some business in this tough economy. There’s going to be pupus, cocktails—and you know me and games, love ‘em!—and networking games to make sure people are circulating and having a good time.

I’m very excited because we’re doing a first-of-its-kind home and business trend fashion show. What is that? I’m glad you asked. Being that it’s the first month of the year, I’ve asked some of our online experts for their predictions of what’s going to be hot in 2010. I’m going to give you a sneak peek of what’s coming down the catwalk on Thursday.

Color Me Devine is going to strut their predictions for the hottest colors of 2010. I can’t give it all away, but 2010’s accent colors will include apricots, turquoises and aquas.

American Carpet One is going to feature their ever-popular Karndine flooring. I heard that to show how durable it is, they’re even going to have a dog walk down the Karndine runway. How cute is that?

Central Pacific Bank and Central Pacific HomeLoans are the presenting sponsors. Here’s a hint at what they’ll be doing: CPB is cooking up a recipe for success, and their HomeLoans Division is doing double-duty as superheroes!

It’s going to be fun, I can’t wait, but right now I’m totally stressed out. My next blog, I’ll show you all the highlight photos and let you in on all the fun. We’ll have fabulous prizes—I’ll show you those pics too. But for now, back to work!
