Valentine’s Day Special Treat!


Sweet Treats for Valentines!

Last Thursday was Valentine’s Day…ahhh…my favorite holiday.  But also kinda sad because I know a lot of people who don’t like Valentine’s Day and some who even refuse to celebrate it!  That’s okay though…to each their own holiday.  I had a wonderful Valentine’s week and some great events happened that week.

WBON ladies with Megan Huber

First of all, WBON of Cary held their February meeting at Prestonwood Country Club and had over 50 ladies in attendance!  Our speaker was Megan Huber and she did a great job talking to the ladies about “Getting Back to the Basics of Business”…in other words, what is it about your business that you love and enjoy?  Make sure you are doing those things daily!  Since the WBON meeting was held on the 13th, I contacted one of my clients, The Flower Cupboard, and ordered fresh roses for everyone that had RSVP’d for the luncheon.  They were a wonderful token of love to give to the ladies as they left.  Thanks to Jon Van Denise, owner of The Flower Cupboard, for helping me with the roses.  They were simply beautiful and we loved the pastel colors, a nice change from the typical red.  Thanks to My Girlfriend’s Closet too for the super cute Juicy Couture heart sweater dress that I wore to WBON, it was a great fit and very easy to wear on such a busy day!

On Valentine’s Day I was in charge of the program that night for my Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club.  I had some issues booking speakers, I was trying to go with the theme of “love and passion” but with some bad luck, I had three different speakers book and then cancel.  So on Wednesday night, I was racking my brain on an excellent speaker who I could call last minute…and I thought about the perfect person!      Dr. Kevin Snyder!

I met Kevin in the Fall of 2012 when he first visited our Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club and then again when he was a dynamic speaker for WBON of Cary.  I called Kevin and he graciously agreed to speak on Valentine’s night to our club.  Sometimes things really do work out and I’m actually glad that the other speakers canceled and Kevin was able to speak b/c he was soooooo great!  Kevin talked with our club about PASSION and having the drive to reach your dreams.

He shared his super cool story about his dream from the age of 11 to be on the Price is Right and shake hands with Bob Barker.  I had heard him talk before, but it was great to hear again!  At the end CG Caldwell, our Sergeant of Arms, presented Kevin with a book for him to sign that will be donated to Hope Elementary School in downtown Raleigh.  Kevin also stuck around after the meeting to talk with members and expressed an interest in joining our club! He would make a great member!  Here is a nice picture of Kevin with Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club members Kyle Smith and Susan Pruskin.  Thanks again so much Kevin!  We’d love to have you as a member!

So Valentine’s Day 2013 went just wonderful!  I was surprised with a nice bouquet of flowers from Blake & our boys earlier in the week and we went to Build-A-Bear Workshop in Crabtree Mall and then dinner at Carolina Ale House in Crossroads later over the weekend.  Thanks again to My Girlfriend’s Closet for the cute black & white polka-dot dress that I wore on Valentine’s Day!  I added a cute red cardigan and red platform pumps to spice it up!
