Weddings are notoriously expensive. You want the best for your special day but that doesn’t mean you have to pay an arm and a leg for it. If you are flexible on some of the details, you can still have a beautiful wedding on a budget.

The key to a budget wedding is to save as much as you can on minor aspects of your wedding, such as invitations and favors, so that you can put more money into the areas in your budget that you care most about. …more

Creative Holiday Photo Cards

Posted by Amanda   Date: Monday November 21st   Topic: Gift Ideas, In the News, What we like about...

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is reconnecting with loved ones and cherished friends. As families and friends are dispersed throughout the US and worldwide, it is hard to do this. That is why I so adore holiday photo cards. I love to see how quickly the kiddies have grown and the new additions to families. It’s so great to see the sport photos, dance recital pics, and tidbits of wonderful info. It’s the personal touches that mean a lot during the holidays.

Muddy Fun

Posted by Amanda   Date: Tuesday September 6th   Topic: Fitness, Gotta Have It, Shoes and Apparel, What we like about...

I’ve done something crazy…all in the name of fitness.

Last week, I signed up for the Tough Mudder race.

What’s that you say? You have never heard of this race? Let me tell you a little about it. Prepare to be slightly scared.

Upon clicking on their site at ToughMudder.com, the following description appears:

this race “is not your average lame-ass mud run or spirit-crushing endurance road race. It’s Ironman meets Burning Man…testing all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.”

Did I mention that this is a 10 to 12 miles long race with 20+ killer obstacles? This is all done while dragging your exhausted legs through swampy mud the entire race. By “killer obstacles” I mean running through fire flames of four feet tall, running through live wires that hold 10K volts of electricity, and maneuvering along greased monkey bars.

Only 78% of Tough Mudder participants actually complete the race. That’s comforting. Let’s assume that the remaining 22% are still chin deep in the mud.

Sensational Seattle

Posted by Amanda   Date: Tuesday August 16th   Topic: Travel, What we like about...
After spending a week in the glorious city of Seattle, I can describe this city in three simple words:
  1. clean (the air, the views, and most people)
  2. gorgeous (the views, the food, and most people)
  3. fit (the food, the activities, and again most people)
To quote my eight year old niece, this city really knows how to chillax (chill and relax combined to make one word). Dying to visit this city by the sea? Here are my suggestions for four fantastic days in the Emerald City, their official nickname:
Day One:
  • Wake up to a fresh cup of Seattle’s best coffee. This will not be difficult as there is practically a coffee shop on every corner of this city. Did you know that the first Starbucks opened here in 1971?
  • Pike’s Place is a great way to spend a half of a day. Stroll along this area and check out the vendors booths and local shops. The fruits and veggies are displayed so lovely. Don’t pass on eating the Rainier cherries that are grown locally. Fantastic deals can be found on giant bouquet of flowers here, as they are only $10 to $15 for a giant bunch. The freshest of fresh fish and seafood are an absolute must here. Consider bringing some home too.
  • One commonly seen site in Pike’s Place is the throwing of fish by the fish vendors. Stand back and watch with awe as fish are flung over your head. Here’s a secret that I learned: you may be able to catch a fish if you provide the employees with a round of coffee. Worth the extra expense.

Support US Women’s Soccer

Posted by Amanda   Date: Monday July 11th   Topic: Fitness, Shopping Tips, What we like about...

Did you see the totally awesome save(s) that Hope Solo made yesterday? Besides being tall, fast, and incredibly talented, this US women’s soccer goalie is beautiful too. It doesn’t hurt that she is considered the best goalie in the world at the present moment. Solo is one of the many reasons that our soccer team totally rocks.

For those who are unaware, the  2011 women’s World Cup is currently being played in Germany. As of today, our US women’s team has made it to the semi-final round. Sharing this round with the US is Sweden, France, and Japan.

It was a hard fought game on Sunday between the US and Brazil. Thankfully, the US prevailed over the Brazilian team and their Brazilian superstar Marta. While frustrating and confusing calls were made by the referee against our team, we still pushed on. The fact that the team brushed off the obstacles (one leading to Brazil scoring a goal) was downright amazing. Keep in mind that the US played a large portion of the match with one player less than Brazil.

Luckily, Abby Wambach took the lead just in the nick of time. Watch Abby’s perfectly placed header below.

Eating, Watching, Reading

Posted by Amanda   Date: Tuesday July 5th   Topic: Food and Wine, Gotta Have It, What we like about...

Eating:

After returning from a fantastic trip to Seattle, I have a new appreciation for one tasty beverage-lemonade. It was in these multiple Seattle restaurants that I sampled the real deal. Fresh squeezed lemonade made from real lemons. Not that generic powered lemonade that tastes bland when stirred into water. While lemonade is tasty enough, I had the opportunity to try it a few new ways. At the Icon Grill, the lemonade options include: mango, peach, raspberry, coconut, blueberry, and cherry. Such yummy options. I choose the coconut lemonade and was not disappointed one teeny bit. It was at another local Seattle restaurant that I experienced a beverage that represents summer-watermelon lemonade. It was so good that I made my own batch for a fourth of July celebration. Virgin version for the kiddies and fun version (with vodka) for the grown-ups. Here’s the simple recipe:

  • 8 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 4 cups water
