Is it ok to have fully charged lipos sitting for a week or two. Typically I fly on the weekends, when I get home I start charging my batteries so they are ready for the next weekend (or the one after if I can't make it out).
I have a mix of nanotech and regular turnigy

Absolutely! The manufacturers and sales people will love you.
You'll always be ready to fly. None of that tedious waiting around stuff.
Nanotechs especially will thank you for keeping them topped off and ready to go.

Don't listen to flydiver, read the listed thread listed by mrforsyth.
When I get home from flying I put all my packs at storage voltage (3.8V).
The next time I plan to go fly (next weekend if the weather is good) I parallel charge 5 packs while I drink my morning coffee.
They are ready to go is 15minutes.
You need a high output charger for that.
You can never have too big a charger but you sure can have too small a charger.

WoodCrafter is right, don't listen to me.
It's best practice, but it's a pain. I'm annoyed every time I do it, but I do it.
Your batteries......do what you want. One way or another you pay a price, in time or in new batteries.
