Alexa and I at Turks and Caicos at Beaches, best vacation ever!

Alexa and I at Turks and Caicos at Beaches, best vacation ever!

Happy Mother’s Day to you if you are a mom.

Happy early Father’s Day if you are a dad.

If you aren’t a parent, then please pass on love, hugs, and best wishes to your parents and grandparents!  If you don’t have a mom, or grandparents, I understand your loss, and remember their laughter, smile, and incredible times you had together.

As a parent, you feel fortunate to be able to bring a child into this world.  You understand what it means to want more for your child than you and your spouse ever had.

Before becoming a mom, I used to think life was “busy”.  Now being a mom, and running multiple businesses, have a new definition and balance for the word “busy”.

Being a teacher and positive role model for your child, you hope and pray the map for their road of life is filled with good choices. You have a positive mindset overflowing with strength and energy, especially on the days when there are detours.

When you are a parent you understand 24/7, you understand there is no time off, and traditions you pass on and implement will be passed on to your child’s children.

You want to be there to share great experiences and all those “firsts”.  You want to listen to everything about their day.  You want to give them hugs, dry their tears, and pick them up when they fall.  You understand one day when when you least expect it, they will be on their own.  You hope and pray you have instilled in them the knowledge, tools, and ability to make their own right choices as if you were there beside them as they follow their road of life.  It is hard to know all your parents sacrificed, yet you get a better idea when you become a parent.

When the doctors told me I would never have children, my mom told me “Kim, you will never know what love is”.  At that time I had no idea what she meant, and now after beating all odds to become a parent, I do “get it”!

Blessed that Alexa (our miracle daughter), Steve, and I have an incredible relationship.  We have each others “back”, and together anything is possible!

One of our favorite sayings is “I love you to the moon and back a zillion times, and I love you more than you love me and it is possible!”  Alexa is now 9, and in 9 more years she will be graduating high school and off to college.

My mom passed away almost 19 years ago next month.  Disappointed Alexa and her never met, yet know they have many things in common, which I have discussed with Alexa – their blue eyes, their nose, and their artistic creativity just to name a few of their similarities.

Steve and I celebrate our 22nd anniversary today, and can’t wait for another weekend experience as we are together for Mother’s Day!

Phoenix Convention Center South Building

9am – 3pm.

$12 at the door

Bridal shows allow you to meet, compare, discuss, and hire wedding vendors (some have show specials for a limited time) at one location at one time.  You may taste cakes, view sites, try on gowns, hear DJs, see and smell floral, and much more.

These wedding planning tips are priceless to make your “Bridal Show Experience” productive!

1).  Pre-register and purchase tickets in advance vs. waiting in lines the day of the show.

2).  Download the BrideScan app, and build your profile.  BrideScan allows you to scan potential wedding pros and brides you meet during a bridal show via QR code.   No more sorting through business cards or writing your name, wedding date, and email address on their forms!  BrideScan allows you to view the vendors by category (caterers, cakes, etc.).

3).  Create a wedding email.

4).  Know the show schedule (fashion shows, opening, and ending times) to plan your day.  Shows normally are less busy the first hours of opening.

5).  Bring the people involved in making major decisions for your wedding.

6).  Take photos and video of everything you love.

7).  Bring a reusable bag to carry hand-outs and samples.

8).  Wear comfortable shoes since you will be walking and standing on your feet for hours.

9).  Bring your calendar so you may book appointments.

10).  Bring cash and your check book to take advantage of show discounts on site.

11).  Bring your color swatches if you still need a designer, florist, and bakery.

12).  Make a list of priorities of products and services you need the most.

13).  Some vendors may be able to book 1 or 2 weddings a day which will make them book more quickly.  Photographers, DJs, wedding planners, florists, and videographers may be examples of this vendor type.  Other vendors may be able to book multiple weddings on the same day.  Keep this in mind when organizing your priorities.

14).  Stay until the end of the show, you may be able to have props which are leftover from the exhibitors.
