Remembering Weekends

This weekend is my first one completely off (no weddings, no meetings, no site visits, nothing) since early March, so I’m heading to the beach to catch up on some sleep, some socializing, and some sunshine (although I may be planning to shoot a tutorial on signature cocktails, so it’s not like my workaholic tendencies have completely disappeared.)

Some things I’ve liked around the internet lately:

And: Lowe House Events is now on Facebook! “Like” us over there for more regular updates on goings on in our wedding world.

Here’s to summer weekends and the Pacific Ocean.

    Oh man, I love that breast cancer article. The publicity for breast cancer always bugs me, since heart disease (which I have a family history of) is still the number one killer of women. And heart disease is way more preventable with diet and exercise- but food corporations don’t want that message spread.

    And as an employee at an independent sport shoe store, we were always slammed with pink ribbon goods, especially during October- which drove my boss crazy. Companies weren’t donating “a portion of the proceeds,” they were increasing the prices and giving the extra- meaning it was the consumer who was donating the money, but the company was getting the publicity. I was just always angered when HS football teams would have breast cancer- awareness games and players would come in to buy pink socks, shoelaces, mouthguards, wristbands- but none of those products or companies were doing anything for the cause. If you’re committed, instead of buying a bunch of pink stuff, why not give that money to the American Cancer Society instead?

    Whew, obviously that struck a chord with me. I’ll still advocate for heart disease prevention loudly (go take a walk! watch your sodium! high blood pressure is a silent killer!). Enjoy your relaxing weekend :-)
