Days like today…

When crisis strikes in Colorado, Israel or really anywhere in the world, my days look like this: Wake up. Learn there is a crisis. Obsessively check Facebook, Twitter, news outlets, any information I can find online (in the case of the November 2012 Israeli engagement it was an awesome blogger giving blow by blow)....

Trumph!
TheHaykins, Wedding |
May 31, 2013

Trumph!

I must brag! We did it! We finished our thank you cards! Finally! I had been warned that this was going to be the most time consuming and annoying part of the wedding. Every night, writing cards for months. But honestly, I enjoyed it. I love handwriting cards to friends and family. In fact, I have an 80-something year old pen pal in Chicago. 🙂 But all in all, I am proud of us. We wrote all of our thank you cards and I even made Dan in charge of his friends......

Update on the No Pants Dance

I was over at my favorite financial advice website, LearnVest, reading an article about this woman’s quest for a perfect credit score and I realized… I just stopped my No Pants Dance updates when I got engaged. I mean, to be honest, I was a little bit distracted by my handsome fiancé and our wedding and then our honeymoon and now our adorable puppy BUT that is no excuse. Let’s start with a recap. I decided to do the No Pants Dance in May of last year. Read about that here. Then......

Ever Been Threatened On Your Blog?

Add me to that list. Last year I wrote about a dubious email I received from a Matthew T. Keener of CMO Summits.  You can read the blog post in full here – Marketing Directors Targeted in Scam|Spam. I wrote about how when I tried to learn more about this potential professional development opportunity I hit one road block after another which made me curious about this organization. In the end, I wrote that others had branded this a scam, the IP addresses and emails were marked as spam and though they......

Amazing Lighting

If you haven’t seen our wedding pictures yet (they are so amazing, thank you Dox Photo!), you may not have seen our great lighting! Mike from The Conference Experience came out and hung them all for us. We had a specific vision of garden lights hanging across the room. This was the design on our amazing invites (thanks to Paper Candy Prints) and we wanted to carry it through the whole event. Unfortunately it was pretty costly to rent these type of lights. SO Dan and I found them online at PartyLights.com and......
