I feel like Spring is really on the way now that I have spent a few hours at the Fredrick Meijer Gardens today with their annual Foremost Butterfly Exhibit going on.  It seems like there were more butterflies this year as opposed to the last time I was there, which was about 6 years ago.  It definitely was a lovely day to go and I felt inspired for my upcoming year.

Last weekend, my husband and I had a phenominal and fantastic opportunity to hold a booth at the West Michigan Bridal Show and 2009 Women’s Expo.  It was a long weekend and well worth it as I had the chance to meet hundreds of brides planning for their fantasy event.  Not only did I get a chance to meet future brides but several vendors such as Shutter Booth, Molesta Floral, True Vine Creations, and many more photographers,  Shutter Sam Photography, Matt Pratt Photography, and Kyle Bultman Photography, as well as my friend, Krinn, from Affordable Flowers.  It was such a pleasure to meet so many of you and I look forward in seeing you again in the near future.

This handsome little sweetheart was born February 3, 2009.  I know.  I know.  I’m a little behind on the times but it’s better late than never, right?  He was 8 lbs 4 oz and 19 inches long.

Saturday afternoon the 5/3 Ball Park held their annual Winter Beer Festival.  It held over 40 Michigan beer vendors including Founder Brewing Co., Hop Cat, Grand Rapids Brewing Co., Big Buck Brewery, North Peak, and many more with over hundreds of brewed beer.  Patrons came bundled as it was still yet a cold day even with it being nice and sunny outdoors.  However, they remained to be festive with fun winter caps and snowsuits.  If you were hungry, hamburgers, bratwursts, and turkey legs the size of your face were available and a live band kept the entertainment rolling.

Last Sunday, I made my trek to Detroit for the Red Carpet Events Bridal Expo which took place in the ball room of the MGM Casino.  It was an amazing event that held several wedding vendors such as cake designers, event coordinators, florists, and many photographers.  There also was a live bridal fashion show held for prospective brides.  Macy’s matched the event with several red item household goodies that can be added to the Macy’s bridal registries.
