Cary Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast

This morning was the Cary Chamber Eye Opener Networking Breakfast for the month of October.

This networking breakfast is held once a month on the 4th Wednesday at 7:30am at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.  The event usually draws a crowd of 50-60 chamber members and guests from the business community.  The guest speaker this morning was Tom Gough, Senior Vice President & Administrator at WakeMed Cary Hospital.  He talked about the fast pace of growth in the Cary community and how that is impacting hospitals and local health care.  He shared some of the new and exciting innovate technologies being used at WakeMed Cary to help patients with everything from cancer treatment to maternity care and all services in between.  WakeMed  Cary plays a huge role in our community through their support and sponsorships of such things like WakeMed Soccer Park and the Movies by Moonlight at Koka Booth.

World Polio Day October 24th 2017

Yesterday, October 24th, was World Polio Day.  The polio disease is close to being eradicated and World Polio Day was established by Rotary International to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against polio.  In honor of World Polio Day 2017, my Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club held 2 different fundraisers to raise funds to donate to the organization EndPolioNow.

World Polio Day Oct 24th 2017

We had a lunch & dinner fundraiser at Danny’s Bar-B-Que in Cary and partnered with My Berry Frozen Yogurt for $1/per bowl yesterday being donated.  Thanks to all who came out and supported us!  It looks like we have raised around $250!

Downtown Cary and White Tiger

Academy Street Bistro

Academy Street Bistro

So how did you celebrate Friday the 13th last week?  I went out with some girlfriends to one of the newest places in downtown Cary…Academy Street Bistro.   One of my good friends, Andrea, is bartending there and invited me out to see the new place.  It’s very nice and located right in the heart of downtown Cary.  We had a great time hanging out there in the front dining room and our food was delicious!  We tried several different things off the menu and really enjoyed our experience!  It’s a great place for a dinner date on the patio, a drink after work with a friend or for a party.  Thanks Andrea for inviting us out!  I’ll be back soon!

Parents Night Out at White Tiger Taekwondo

Before I went to Academy Street Bistro, I dropped our boys over at White Tiger Taekwondo for their Friday the 13th Parents Night Out.  White Tiger has been a client of Smith & Smith, CPA for a LONG TIME and our boys LOVE going there!  They had a full night planned of games, demonstrations, play area, zip line, pizza party, movies and more!  Here is a cool picture of the boys with their friend, Amber, and one of the White Tiger teachers.  The kids had a great time and we’ll be back for another Parents Night Out for sure!  I don’t know about you…but Friday the 13th days sure make for a fun experience!  Happy weekend!!  We are heading to the NC mountains for a wedding!

A Crazy Blog about Animals and Friendships

White Tiger Summer Camp!

White Tiger Summer Camp!

You know the phrase…“Lions, Tigers and Bears OH MY!”  Well, my blog today is “Tigers and Horses OH MY!”  Last week the White Tiger Taekwondo bus came over to Smith & Smith, CPA to visit.  Blake, Bob and Cam went out to see the bus with Fred (from White Tiger) and of course I was right behind them with my camera to take their picture!  White Tiger has great programs for ALL ages and they are gearing up for their summer camp programs.  What better way to promote your summer camps then with a HUGE bus like this!?!  So we say…TIGERS!  OH MY!

 

Farm Day at The Corral with Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club

Farm Day at The Corral with Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club

On Saturday, my Rotary Club, Cary-Kildaire, gathered together at The Corral Riding Academy in Cary, NC to work on “FARM DAY”. Farm Day is a chance for groups to come out and put some ‘sweat and tears’ into the farm.  That’s right, it’s a day to help the staff & girls of The Corral with projects around the farm.  This was our first time helping with FARM DAY and we had a great time!  We did all kind of jobs from moving the hay bale protectors, painting, moving & loading wood, trimming the bushes, planting flowers, fixing broken flower beds, hauling loads to the different fields and much more!  Our club is really looking forward to working with The Corral on future grants & projects.  So we way…HORSES, OH MY!

 

Dinner with friends

Dinner with friends

And one final shout-out to some of my ‘mommy-friends’!  Our youngest kids go to the best preschool in town and I have really formed some great friendships with all of the other parents/mommies in the classroom.  So a few weekends ago I had dinner with Megan and Katherine.  We met for dinner & drinks at the Carolina Ale House and had a great time sharing work stories, but also, PARENTING stories!!!  Our three boys (along with the other kiddos in the class) are the best of friends and always seem to be up to something together at pre-school!  Thanks Megan and Katherine for a fun night out!  We missed the rest of you mommies from our preschool, but we know we will see you all at our next gathering!

 

Is it the weekend yet!?!?!?!  Anyone else feel that way!?!?

Check out who came by the office earlier this week?  The big White Tiger Taekwondo van, driven by none other than Autumn LaBarca!  Autumn is the new Marketing Manager for White Tiger Taekwondo.  She’s going to have so much fun with this job and will be very successful!  White Tiger Taekwondo has been a client of Smith & Smith, CPA for many years and has won many awards, accolades, and recognition over the years. 

 

 

I’m very excited about our CPA firm getting involved with some of their advertising opportunities for their Family Fun Day, Black Belt Testing and other testing events for their students & families.  If you are interested in these opportunities too, please contact Autumn to learn more! 

Ghosted BOO bag of candy!

 

And just something fun to add since it is Friday…our kids received their BOO Bag on Wednesday night!  It’s a tradition in our Lochmere neighborhood for all of the kids to be ‘GHOSTED’ before Halloween night!  Our sweet neighbor, Lisa-Gray, was our friendly ghost this year!  So now it is our turn to GHOST someone else and deliver them a BOO bag!  Here is a picture of the boys going through their BOO bag earlier this week. 

Happy Friday everyone!!!!

Ladies Love Uvo Luxury! 

Uvo Luxury

Gigi models her Uvo Luxury bags with friends!

Okay, so maybe there wasn’t an actual “Housewife” from “Beverly Hills” at the Triangle Ladies Lunch this past week, but she sure did play a major role in the speaker’s presentation on Uvo Luxury

Gigi Karmous-Edwards was the speaker and she took the ladies through the wild ride of her fascinating career life.  She was very entertaining and engaging and really is living her passion.  She is the owner/designer of Uvo Luxury, her designer line of handbags!  You can read the complete story: Designs on a New Life

Becca of Smith & Smith, CPA with Rondy of White Tiger Taekwondo

 

I always enjoy seeing Rondy of White Tiger Taekwondo located in Cary.  Rondy was sporting a fashionable hot pink Dobok!  Carrie stopped by the J.Foods booth to get a tasty treat!  Christine was busy greeting ladies and telling them about her ‘spa-licous’ line of products!  I can’t forget to mention Ty of Floral Essence of Raleigh, her flowers are ones that last forever…literally!   And I’d like to thank Mary-Jo Zimmerman of PuroClean, Teresa Robinson of ClubZ Tutoring and Natalie Ward of Fidelity Bank for joining me as guests at the luncheon. 

J.Foods

Carrie Peele of Blue Diamond Limo with Jessie Seltzer of J. Foods

It was a wonderful luncheon and as always, Carrie Peele of Blue Diamond Limo, pulled together the brightest women in the Triangle for another unforgettable Triangle Ladies Power Lunch!  If you have never been to a Triangle Ladies Power Lunch I STRONGLY encourage you to go!  The networking and shopping hour before the lunch are well worth a visit! 

Floral Essence

Ty of Floral Essence

So tell me what you think…do you know a woman business owner in this area that could benefit from attending this luncheon?  Have you ever used Blue Diamond Limo service?  I’ve been on several events with Blue Diamond vehicles and it’s a very FUN and professional service!  And have you ever heard of Uvo Luxury?  What do you think of her bag designs and would you like to BUY me one!?!  😉

 

 Our CPA Firm is currently taking on new business clients, we especially enjoy working with women business owners.  Please send them our way!  THANK YOU!!!!
