RDU Impact on the Region

Last night I had the pleasure of attending an event at the RDU General Aviation Building in Raleigh called: “RDU: It’s Impact on the Region”.  The program was sponsored by First Citizens Bank and I was a guest of Liz Cantino.  The guest speaker was Mike Landguth, President & CEO for RDU Airport Authority.

Liz and Becca


His program was very informative about how many passengers go through RDU each year, the financial impact it has on our region, new & current flights/destinations, and what the future holds for RDU.  I really enjoyed the program and appreciate Liz inviting me to attend!  We have many clients at Smith & Smith, CPA who bank with First Citizens and I am so excited for Liz to now be on their team!  She recently joined their bank about 30 days ago and is in the role as Vice President in Business Banking.  She is in the Cary office off of Kildaire Farm Road, so right down the street from my office!  Congrats Liz!

Change in Plans

Yesterday afternoon I had a change in plans for a luncheon I was planning to attend.  Since I was already over in the Raleigh area, I called my good friend, Christine Johnson, and met her for lunch as an early Birthday celebration (today is her actual birthday).  We had a wonderful lunch at the new Seasons 52 at Crabtree Mall.  Oddly enough, Seasons 52 is part of the Darden Family Restaurant group, which also owns Red Lobster, where I used to work and where I met my husband, Blake!  I LOVE how they celebrate your birthday there…with a HUGE Birthday cake ‘tree’, plus a card and photo!  I’ll be back there for sure to eat and celebrate!  Thanks to Lois Cozart of My Girlfriend’s Closet Boutique in downtown Apex for helping me find this Diane Von Furstenberg dress!  It was a great dress for the hot summer heat yesterday.  Shop their store for great deals on awesome summer dresses and accessories.  Tell them you read for a special discount at the register!

Happy Birthday Christine!

Run Run Run and then Get Glammed Up!

Jingle Bell Race

 Very proud to say that four of us from Smith & Smith, CPA ran in the 2012 Raleigh Jingle Bell race this past Saturday.  We had a great time; Cam & Brooke Smith joined us for our first 5k race together.  We also took along our kids and met with neighbors, Lisa-Gray and Benjamin.  This was Trent’s 3rd 5k race since September, he’s become a good runner!  The Jingle Bell Race was a fundraiser to support the fight against arthritis.  It’s been recognized as one of the “21 Most Incredible Themed Races”.  We loved seeing all of the cool Christmas/Holiday costumes and they even have a contest at the end!


Clinique at Belk Crabtree

Saturday evening I took my good friend,  Heather Swanner, along with me to the Clinique at Belk Crabtree Mall in Raleigh for a fun afternoon with the Clinique Beauty Experts!  It was their “Coffee to Cocktails Red Carpet Ready” event.  I saw Jennifer Elkin (Clinique) at the TLPL last week and she had invited me to the event and told me to bring a friend along.  Heather and I were going to our girlfriend’s Christmas party later on Saturday night, so the opportunity was perfect!  Thank you Jennifer and Stacey for making us look glamorous and for the event time!  Jennifer and I will be doing some networking and referral swapping through our TLPL connections in 2013.
