Hole Sponsor with Cary Chamber Golf

Smith & Smith, CPA

Yesterday was the most gorgeous day!  And a PERFECT day for golf!  Smith & Smith, CPA was proud to be a Hole Sponsor for the 2016 Cary Chamber of Commerce Member-Guest Golf Tournament.  We’ve been sponsoring this tournament for several years now.  Usually Cam & Blake will invite two other golfers to play on our foursome team.  But THIS year, they asked (or were told) that the wives were going to play!  That means Brooke and I got to play!  We started off at Prestonwood Country Club with check-in and headed to our carts.  We were assigned to play on the Fairways course.

Our carts were loaded with box lunches and a goodie bag with treats from all of the event & hole sponsors.  Paragon Bank was the Presenting Sponsor for the tournament.  After a greeting from Cary Chamber President, Howard Johnson, and a few other special guests, we were on our way to golf and enjoy the afternoon!  We played well, and while we didn’t win, we still had a great time and enjoyed spending the day supporting the Cary Chamber!  And thanks to all of the Cary Chamber Ambassadors who were out on the course driving the beverage carts and working the prize holes! It was fun to see you all!

Here are a few pictures to share from the day!

Along the way, this super cool company called Lightspeed Marketing was set-up with a photo booth and cool prize giveaways!

They also had cool give-aways (best koozies ever) and a drawing for a Yeti Cooler!   You had to select a golf tee out of a bowl and then later on they would draw some lucky numbers to win gift cards and other things…like the Yeti Cooler!  And guess what…#19 was my LUCKY WINNER and the Yeti Cooler from Lightspeed Marketing came home with me!!!!!

Celebrating in Charlotte!

One of my good friends has a BIG birthday coming up in a few weeks, so we took off to Charlotte, NC for a Girls Weekend to CELEBRATE!   This blog post will highlight some of the great fun and experiences that we had!

Tour De Food (Food tour in Charlotte, NC)

We started out the weekend with a really fun FOOD TOUR of the NODA area in Charlotte.  Like most big cities, Charlotte is broken down and identified by different areas (Uptown, Southend, NODA, etc).  We decided to do the NODA Food Tour with a company called Tour De Food.  This is an eclectic vibe of NODA (North Davidson Art District), with lots of cool stores, unique restaurants, tons of art work, murals and funky cool people!  The tour included stops at 7 different restaurants (including a popsicle stand!), mixed in with some walking for exercise in the cool historic neighborhoods, plus a history lesson on the old mill area.  Our tour guide, Jon, was very knowledgeable and really made the tour fun.  There was a total of 17 people on our tour and it lasted from 12:30pm noon until 4:00pm.  I have done Food Tours all over the country and this was one of the best!  A food tour is a great way to learn about the area, try lots of different foods, get some exercise and have a great time in a new area!

Comedy Funny Bus in Charlotte, NC

On Saturday night, we had tickets booked to ride the Funny Bus Comedy City Tour.  Again, we’ve done comedy buses in other cities, so that was kinda what we were expecting.  This was fun, but very different from other funny bus tours.  The jokes were a little crude, so like their website says, NOT FOR CHILDREN, but if you are looking for a good tour of Charlotte and want some laughs along the way, this is a fun thing to do!

US National Whitewater Center

On Sunday, we went to the US National Whitewater Center…a place I have been waiting to go to for a LONG LONG LONG time!  We spent 12 hours there and had a total blast!  From whitewater rafting, to rock climbing, high ropes course, 100ft drop and more, we stayed busy all day and loved every minute of it!  It’s a place to really find out your outer & inner strength, face your fears (of heights or water) and test your limits!   I highly recommend a visit there if you are looking for some local adventure!

Hyatt House Pool Side

For our weekend in Charlotte, we stayed at the new Hyatt House, located in downtown Charlotte, near the EpiCenter and Time Warner Cable Arena.  This hotel is fairly new and really nice.  The staff were super friendly and the location was perfect for all we wanted to do and see.  We loved the rooftop pool and spent time up there relaxing and even took a short nap in the sun!  Thanks to My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Cary and downtown Apex for the gorgeous beach/pool coverup!  Shop there and mention Beccablog.com for 10% off your total purchase!
