What to do before I do

Saturday, January 30th, 2010


I got a phone call from Heather from Bloomtastic a while ago asking me if I wanted to be part of the “What to do before you say I do” seminar.  I was thrilled to say the least and jumped on the chance!  Heather and I, along with Alice’s Piece of Cake, Cameron Mitchell Catering, So Inviting Designs, Team DJ, The Venue at Smith Brothers and DK Photographic will all on hand giving tips on how to choose the best vendor, what to look for when hiring a wedding pro and tips to make your planning process as smooth as possible!

February 7th at
The Loft at Smith Brothers

Hope you will join us and if you do, please make sure to say hello!

Super deal on dance lessons!

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

If you aren’t familiar with it is a really cool website that offers daily deals on local restaurants, salons, activities, events, etc.  They offer a new one every day and as long as a certain number of people buy it, the deal is good!  I have seen 75% off photo sessions, super cheap pizza and I was really excited when I caught 50% off for the salon I happen to already go to!  Today’s deal is great for all your brides and grooms or maybe brides and dads:

Today – January 19, 2010 ONLY – they are offering a super deal on dance lessons at the Columbus Dance Centre.  For just $25, you get four group classes (normally $15 per class), entry into four practice dance parties (free with group classes), and one private lesson ($89 value) at Columbus Dance Centre, a $149 total value.

Use the 4 group lessons to get the basics and the private lesson to nail down your own spectacular first dance routine – your guests will be wowed!  You’ll need to buy two – one for you and one for your dance partner but it is still a crazy good deal!

Taking time to help others

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

I know, I know, I disappeared for a while!  I am sorry but I have a really good excuse – I have been working on a secret project with my friend Kasey.  I am thrilled to say it isn’t secret anymore!


Who: Columbus area event professionals and their invited guests (if you are seeing this website, consider yourself cordially invited!)

What: An evening of fun and networking benefiting the Mid Ohio Food Bank and Operation Feed including live and silent cake auctions and raffles – there will be something to satisfy every sweet tooth!

Where: The Mid Ohio Food Bank’s brand new facility, 3960 Brookham Drive, Grove City, Ohio, 43123

When: March 23, 2010 from 6 to 9 pm

Why: Because there are too many hungry people in the Central Ohio area and this is a fun and simple way to help!

Advance ticket purchase: $21 which will provide one person’s meals for 2 weeks.

The price of your admission and any money spent on the auctions or raffles is 100% tax deductible.
