Brad Buckles & Lance Armstrong - Livestrong 100 miles!
Sunday 6/21 Fathers Day LIVESTRONG Challenge Seattle 100 Miles around and thru Seattle Washington
LET'S GO, Brad Buckles-Seattle!
I need your help, support & any fundraising possible. Even if it is a dollar. I don't care. If I can spend Fathers day riding 100 miles, you can help me with a few dollars. It is for cancer, it is in the name of my Mom. She has, is enduring breast cancer. I have cancer in my direct family. I have experienced, second hand, this disease.
Please help any way that you can :)
Brad Buckles Riding a GT Carbon frame (for those that ask) I am looking forward to this race/fight on Sunday!!!
Here is a LIVESTRONG posting from thier blog.
Show us your spirit! SEATTLE ROCKS!
The LIVESTRONG "Show Us Your Spirit" Rally is underway! The 'prize' is a City message and 'tweet' from Lance Armstrong, but most importantly: bragging rights over the other LIVESTRONG Challenge cities in terms of who has the best spirit!
What do we need to do? For the next two weeks, up to May 7, 2009, we need to raise as much money as possible, and bring on as many new participants as we can!
I KNOW that as the newest – and first – 2009 event city of the LIVESTRONG Challenge Series, that we can also be the first in registration and fundraising!
Let's compare the other Challenge Cities (this is where we throw down the gauntlet)
What does Austin have? Longhorns? "Hook 'Em"? What the heck does that mean? What does Philly have? A cracked bell and humidity? Rocky? Cream cheese? What does San Jose have? High tech? Heat and earthquakes?
... but ...
What does Seattle have? Clean air, snow-capped mountains, the ocean, lakes, hills, forests, a huge cycling and running community, and an amazing group of LIVESTRONG people with big hearts and relentless fundraising energy!
(Call me biased.)
The excitement is definitely building on all sides! The course route is set, the weather is getting warmer – but we need you to put Seattle on the LIVESTRONG map!
We welcome all Seattleites and out-of-towners to this great event, and LIVESTRONG Challenge participants will enjoy an unforgettable event! The course will take advantage of all aspects of Seattle – from starting under the Space Needle, to riding through downtown, to closing off a floating bridge for the riders, to taking in the beautiful lakes, hills, mountains and forests that form our topography. This truly will be a unique, fun and challenging ride.
So, go ahead, Seattle! Let's pick a fight with cancer!
Let's show Austin, Philly and San Jose who really is number one!
Let's put ourselves on the map! Sign up for the Challenge in Seattle, and FUNDRAISE, FUNDRAISE, FUNDRAISE!
Gooooo, Seattle & Goooo, Brad Buckles!
This week I have had the opportunity to attend and help organize one of the greatest gatherings in the wedding industry.
60 Bridal show producers, representing hundreds of bridal shows, from all over the world have come to gether to discuss the wedding industry. Everything is on the agenda from bridal trends, fashion, marketing and of course the economy.
The best minds of the industry have indicated that although there are drastic changes in the industry this year, brides are getting married and they are "JUST" booking later in the year than in times past.
More to come,
According to many brides and wedding professionals that I am talking with lately. Thursday night is becomming the new Saturday night, most important wedding day in demand.
Facilities have the date open, always. Wedding professionals are always open and willing to make it worth your while if you would like to book them. And it get the party started before the weekend really starts. For brides, you can affor to take a day or two off and enjoy a little honeymoon downtime before friends have to be back to work on Monday.
It will become much more popular in the months to come. We feel the need to spread the information as fast as possible because we are here for you...Always.
Getting started-Familiarize,Fantasize,Prioritize, Visualize,Organize,Sympathize,Synchronize,Deputize
Bridesclub.com vendor listing - We're here to help! Check us out!
Weddings are a ceremony! A Celebration! One part reality and planning. A HUGE part fantasizing, dreaming, hoping and orchestrating.
We here at bridesclub.com are trying to bring to you the latest and best vendors in the field of wedding planning. Tips and trends, the newest in wedding services.
We want to inspire you with wonderfully innovative ideas to personalize your wedding celebration. First things first: What do you want? FAMILIARIZE yourself with the options and available services. FANTASIZE about all that can be. PRIORITIZE which points are important to you/your significant other. VISUALIZE what it is going to look like as it comes together. ORGANIZE it into smaller pieces. SYMPATHIZE - although it is your day, others should to be able to enjoy it. It is a celebration/party. You want others to enjoy it with you! SYNCHRONIZE your dreams, cultures, abilities to come together. DEPUTIZE your team! Who can you really rely on! Write down all of your thoughts on a piece of paper and start. You'd be surprised with what a little creativity and knowledge can bring you.
....and remember to ENJOY LIFE!
The Choice Is Yours, In Reality and In Life - ENJOY IT! I made the decision early last year to enjoy life. To not let anything get to me anymore.
I meet tens of thousands of brides every year at the Tacoma, Bellevue and Lynnwood Wedding Expos and over in Hawaii at the Hawaii Bridal Expo. I challenge them constantly to enjoy the process. Enjoy life!
We are all a great big family. At a wedding we participate in this reality by celebrating the uniting of husband and wife. We get together and we throw a big party as a family.
The last several months have awakened me! Im sure that it is safe to say we have been nervous, worried, and little scared about all the changes and uncertainty.
But I choose to be inspired, Why...? I look at this time to celebrate a new dawn. The coming of change.... whatever the outcome. We need to turn to each other, talk to friends, and families - we're all part of several families and "friends are the family we choose for ourselves". Celebrate the differences in yourself and those around you. Enjoy the life you are living and those you are living it with!
May we all be grateful for what we have and celebrate by sharing even more.

Lately there have been a lot of tragic stories around the world involving members of the wedding party and this story adds to the pile.
A man dies off Maui, Hawaii while swimming with friends. Onlookers jumped into the water after his calls for help and recovered his body a short time later.
Maui County Medical Examiner Burt Freeland said 29-year-old Kuon Phou was swimming with friends when the group was caught in a strong current and began calling for help.
Residents ran into the water with surfboards to help and brought the group to shore and recovered Phou's body. Police said signs warned of rip tides in the area.

Traveling abroad is becoming more popular for honeymoon destinations. The top honeymoons include 8 of the top 10 destinations that are out of the country and Tahiti is at number 4 according to Modern Bride Magazine.
You can find deals all over the place, but sometimes you wonder what websites to trust. I do. That's why we use a travel agent now. When my wife and I traveled on a Caribbean cruise last fall we weren't sure what to expect out of anything... the cruise, the food, the passports, etc. We had never left the country before and we had never been on a cruise either so it was doubly nerve-racking. But all went pretty well because we did our best to research and ask everyone we know about what to expect.
Tahiti is one of the places that we'd like to visit and getting there on a budget would be preferred because we like to travel a lot and getting anywhere on a budget leaves more money for the next vacation. This blog about traveling to Tahiti on a budget is very helpful. Just talking about overwater bungalows makes me want to go back on vacation.
Remember, once you've taken care of transportation, food and shelter all the really great things in Tahiti are free! Fabulous beaches, romance, turquoise water, time together, tropical breezes, unlimited sunshine, snorkeling, sunsets, more time together.... you get the picture! more
