Never Saved a Wedding Before

I have done lots of things in my life.  I’ve fallen in love, gotten married, traveled to China, pulled a bully off my brother before he could drown, accidentally slapped someone in a haunted house (will explain in another post I’m sure), graduated from high school/college/grad school, etc.  Suffice it to say, I’ve done a lot in my 20-some years.

But Saturday was a first.

D and I to a wedding for my friend L.  She married P. The location was GORGEOUS.  It was a lovely country club right around the corner from our house.  The bridesmaids looked lovely.  The parents were beaming.  The bride was glowing.  (The groom was nervous … kept looking out into the crowd!)…

My Parent’s Favoritism

Now, most people think of favoritism as parents favoring one of their children over another.  That type of favoritism is for another post.

This favoritism is different.  My parents … favor my husband.  Truly.  It is remarkable.

Now I love D.  Truly, madly, deeply.  I love him.  But we both acknowledge there are some things about him (e.g. his living in another state while we were dating) that would not thrill my parents.  Yet there has NEVER been an anti-D comment.

Not only that, they prefer him to me.  Ok well, that might be an exaggeration.  But allow me to make my case!

D and I registered at three places for our wedding.  One was a funky Jewish art store in town.  Although I registered us for a number of items, D really wanted this pink kitchen clock with this mad/angry face on it made out of recycled parts. …

A Pier 1 Spruce Up!

This post brought to you by Pier 1. All opinions are 100% mine.

D and I have a really nice sized porch.  Last year we moved into the apartment on April 30 (cannot believe it’s almost been a year of living here!) and never got around to decorating the porch.  When we moved in a neighbor was moving out and gave us some large plants and pots.  D did a good job maintaining/watering them…until he left for 2 weeks and left me in charge.  Whoops.  Death all around.

But now March 20 has passed and spring has sprung.  The snow (from last week!) is gone.  So it is time to focus on that outdoor space.  D and I would love to be able to sit outside just enjoying our time together.  Since we also love having friends over and would love to be able to entertain outside our entertaining/spring must-haves are chairs and a table or cart to store items on! …

Autoresponders + The Wagon Wheel Caveat

Aweber Is A Commercial Conduit

It becomes very clear in so many ebooks and courses on the market that list building is the same as business building for most internet marketers.

That’s still an understatement. List building is vital and especially so for the internet marketing community today!
However, contrary to what I read so often online, list building does not start… with list building!?!

It starts with something much more important – a business, a reason to have a prospects list.

List building starts with creating an online business that your subscribers and customers will come to know and trust in time.

I know.  That’s obvious to most, but there is… a caveat.…
