Just Had to Mention This

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I just have a few minutes before I have to leave for my Mary Kay unit meeting, so I grabbed my computer and logged on to my blog.  I was looking at the adds that Amazon.com just put on my blog, and I saw one I just have to comment on.  “Power panty with tummy […]

Set the Date

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Probably the next thing that the future bride and groom need to do is set a date. Weddings can be planned in a short amount of time. I had a friend whose daughter had a wedding 3 weeks after deciding to get married. WOW! Talk about a whirlwind!! But 6 months or more is preferable. […]

Platinum Wedding?

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

The next step is to discuss budget. This discussion should be held with everyone who is going to be contributing to the financial support of this big day! Traditionally, the wedding was funded by the bride’s parents. However, it is my observation that now, in some cases, the bride and groom and the groom’s parents […]

New Web Site

Monday, July 28th, 2008

In case anyone has missed me, I am still here. I have been working on my web site this week. All I can say is WOW! I can’t believe I have come from being a simple email user to having a web site in only a couple months. I will let you know where to […]

Announcing the Engagement

Monday, July 21st, 2008

If you are a family that likes to party, an engagement party is always a good reason to do so.  Invite family members and close friends or invite every single person you know.  The more the merrier. Traditionally, this party is hosted by the bride’s family, but it could also be hosted by the bride […]

Meet the Parents

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

Ideally, by the time of an engagement each person should have met the other person’s family. If not, do so quickly. A lot can be learned about a future spouse by meeting his/her family:) According to the traditional rules of wedding etiquette, after the engaged couple has told both sets of parents about the plans, […]

Wedding Planning Timeline

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Before I get involved in too many details, I think I should give you a timeline for making your plans.  This is going to be based on a 9 month engagement. You, of course, will have to customize it to your engagement time and other circumstances. For instance, if you and your daughter live in separate cities, […]

More Picture Ready…

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

Just a couple more of my favorite Mary Kay products that I want you to consider adding to your skin care routine. Day and Night Solution, and the Microdermabrasion Set. The Day Solution, with an SPF of 25, helps prevent lines and discoloration by blocking UVA/UVB rays and a calming peptide helps relax expression lines. […]

Be Picture Ready continued…

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

I found a pilates video and an exercise ball that I actually got as a Mary Kay star consultant several years ago.  They are in great condition–just like brand new–due to lack of use:)  So I’ll be trying it out later today.  Stay tuned for my report. Diet and exercise are long term commitments both for your […]

Be Picture Ready on the Big Day!

Monday, July 7th, 2008

Today I’d like to talk about how you will look the day of the wedding. Yes, I know that the wedding is a year or more away unless your Starry Eyed Daughter is like mine and wants to have her wedding in 8 months. Remember, on the day of the wedding YOU won’t be the […]
