Snaps up for an Ex-Bride!

I coordinated Danna and Adam Caldwell's wedding back in May, and the yogurt shop they own, http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifMenchies in Valley Village, just got named MyFoxLA's best Ice Cream Shop in Los Angeles! It really is a great place, all natural yogurt, and the hook is you pour the yogurt and add the toppings yourself. It's just north of the corner of Lankershim and Riverside on the west side of the street (across from Jack in the Box). As you can tell, I've been there a couple of times.

Mini Wedding Advice at Target

You know that new section that they have in Target, right when you walk in? With all the seasonal stuff that only costs $1? That's where I found this purse-sized edition of "Weddings for Dummies". How cool is that? They have a bunch of mini Dummies books, if you want to learn Spanish, or poker, or how to speak in public. I love Target...

I'm at a board meeting for the North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce all day today, but here's a picture of yet another beautiful flower arrangement I saw at the Grove last week. I'm going over there in a couple of days, so I'll get the name of the florist.

Los Angeles Athletic Club

Not a great picture, but I'm testing out this mobile blog thing.

Okay, maybe not every day

I went to the Los Angeles Athletic Club with Ramona and Nate yesterday. Beautiful place, very old school posh, all hardwood walls and plush carpets and pool tables. They didn't let women in until 1956 or something, and honestly I was surprised that they let me in NOW. Nate and Ramona are going to be using the whole third floor, up to and including the lounge with the pool tables, and each area us going to have a band playing at a certain time. I haven't done thus much band management since I ran variety shows in college at UCLA. I might be crazy, but it sounds like fun, actually.

Nate and Ramona are Getting Married

...at the Los Angeles Athletic Club in Downtown Los Angeles on February 9, and they've hired me as a day-of coordinator. They're going to have 120 guests, four bands and no photographers, and I'm going to blog about it every day. Tomorrow is the on-site visit, so stay tuned.

Cake ornaments about three weeks too late!

Okay, so there's this website Pretty Girl Things? If you send her a picture of your wedding cake, she will make an ornament or pendant of it for you. For between $20-40! Would that have made great holiday gifts for brides last year, or what? Well, there's always birthdays. She's got some other really cute things for sale there, too. I've got my eye on some of her earrings.

Next workshop is January 20th. Sign up early and often.

Tomorrow I'll review the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, with her crazy perfection that I just can't get enough of.
