Let's Rodeo San Antonio!

Rodeo is a BIG thing in Texas! It's like a month celebration for cowgirls and cowboys. This kind of event is really hard to miss especially when you live in Texas.
 We went to the Stockshow and Rodeo last weekend together with our family friends, Alvin and Kavitha. Akesha had a blast with some of the rides at the fair ground. We saw some animals too and checked some southern decors displayed at the marketplace area.
 We also watched a concert. We were supposed to watch the REO Speedwagon, but all tickers were sold out. Instead, we saw Darius Rucker.
We always have fun every time we go to the rodeo. I will post some rodeo actions later...:)

Reliable Advertising Agencies

One of the biggest challenges that new businesses have to face is how they will be able to let the consumers know about their business and what they have to offer. Although entrepreneurs know how to develop quality products and services for their target market, not all of them have the knowledge on how to create an effective advertising campaign that can create the awareness and brand recognition that they would like their business to have. Advertising is a necessary business expense that has both short term and long term effects. The initial expense of hiring an advertising agency and launching a full scale advertising campaign will be offset by the continuous increase in sales that a well executed advertising campaign can bring. Through an advertising agency, a business will be able to accomplish their goal of gaining recognition among consumers and in making a mark in their own industry. Through the services of advertising agencies grand rapids mi, an advertising campaign will be developed which may begin with identifying the market to whom the campaign would be aimed at. They can make a thorough research of the key demographics which will comprise the majority of their target market. Not every business has the manpower and resources to come up with an advertising campaign that will help drive customers and bring in more sales. By utilizing the services of an advertising agency, a company does not have to hire and train additional personnel just to be able to launch an advertising campaign. They will then be able to concentrate on other aspects of their business such as developing more products that their customers are looking for.

Getting married is a time of your life where everything seems to be perfect.  You are at a point where you are ready to be united with the one person that you want to live with the rest of your life.  You are in for a long time commitment thus it is something you can't wait to happen.

To make everything official is wedding itself.   Preparing for a wedding is no joke. It is one of the most strenuous activity that you will be engaged into.  There are so many things to think about.  Even if you are having a small wedding there are many things to consider.  Top of the list will be the date of the wedding, venue, reception, invitations, favors and a lot more.

One of the things to plan ahead when getting married is choosing your wedding bands.  Most couple has basic idea of what they want but it doesn't mean that they will not find some other bands that you will love while shopping.  In this case, it is important to give yourself time to choose your wedding band.  Allow time to browse, research the price  and revisit pieces that catch your attention.  Of course shop in the assumption that the price will be within your budget.  As an advice, don't buy your ring based on the looks alone.  Remember that you will wear your wedding band on a day to day basis whether you are wearing jeans or tux.  So stick with the basic and select the style that will look great all the time. or 8mm Men Tungsten Hand Woven Gold Inlay Rings6mm or 8mm Men Tungsten Solitaire Diamond Wedding Rings

The Graffiti Run: The Colorful 5K

As some of you may know that my brother-in-law and my younger brother are both marathon runners. Greg and I are so proud of what they have accomplished from the previous years. I got inspired and signed up my family for a 5k run last October. The registration fee was $45.00/person, and that includes a shirt, a bib, a color packet, and a headband.

Knowing that we have a 6-year old in tow, hubby was a bit skeptical about it and thought we won't be able to finish the race. But Akesha proved him wrong!
Here's us before the graffiti explosion. So fresh and clean, but not for awhile!
Warming up before the race....
We jogged, walked, and! Greg was way ahead of us, but he waited for us when we're almost to the finish line. We were so proud of Akesha for finishing the 5k run with us....42 minutes is not bad after all!
It was our first time to join a fun run, and we had a blast! It's one of the memories we won't forget. We'll definitely do it again. 
What is the color in the graffiti run?
- The color powder at The Graffiti Run is simply the single most powerful source of happiness on the planet. The color powder is a non-toxic, non-rash inducing corn starch based product. It is 100% natural and safe.
