Hi everyone! It’s Karen here, event engineer and long-time pfe team member. I am running this series on my personal Facebook page and thought I would share with all you lovelies.
Since February 1st, I’ve taken a snapshot a day that shows what real love is. Every day, until Valentine’s Day. Let’s catch up…
Coupons my kids made for me and tucked into the coupon holder. Love them!
Encouragement left in the gym today for me from my boys. Harrison, 5 (on the left) says “You are awesome”. Wilson, 7, says “Work it a little bit more today”. How awesome and funny is that!!!
“Date night” with my oldest after church today. He was so sweet and gentlemanly. When they seated us at the 2 person table (with seats facing each other) he asked the waitress if it was ok if he moved a chair to sit next to me. He told our waitress when we were ready for our check, left a tip with his own money, and opened/closed my car door for me….a sweet afternoon of 1 on 1 time. He’s growing up so fast!!!
Love is supportive and sacrificial not only to family, but to friends when they are under attack. And a little humor along the way helps too.
I ♥ You socks, given to me by a precious and dependable friend. Small gesture….big impact.
Love Letters from my hubbs. We spent nearly 2 years apart when we were dating/engaged in different places finishing our education. And we wrote letters to each other. Every. Single. Day. So we both got one in the mail every day except Sunday and Tuesday. Many say the same thing: I love you, miss you, can’t wait to see you etc…..but each one is precious. Have you ever written your love a Love Letter….?
Lunchbox notes for the boys. Kids don’t always understand that our actions equal love….be sure you tell them! Our kids like the notes a lot…and don’t let us throw them away….we just keep taping over them until it won’t hold …and thin it out.
Tomorrow we’ll show Days 8-13.
What are you doing this month to celebrate LOVE?Read More »
Here is Kerry, our event engineer.
Can you tell the good news? Sometime in March 2013!

We have enjoyed some pretty famous weddings in 2011 and since we talk about weddings and real life here, let’s go through some of the highlights. Oh and the real life, I’ll hit on the divorces as well. Enter: sad face.
Top 2011 Marriages:
1. Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge Oh yeah, this was definitely the biggest shin-dig all year long. It also launched me into mini-stardom by having the opportunity to co-host Local 7 morning show for 45 minutes. The most watched wedding in years and one that everyone had an opinion on.
2. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Ugh, we had to add this. Of course it was watched, although I still have yet to catch it. I’m sure it’s being burned in the editing room somewhere. More about this farce of a marriage below in divorces.
3. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert Personally, I had doubt about these two, but after they both took home the gold at the latest CMA show, I think they may be a powerhouse to be reckoned with. Much like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. Hope they can keep themselves grounded.
4. Prince Albert and Charlene Whitstock Less popular to many, Prince Albert’s parents were Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III). This was the first royal wedding for this country in a jillion years. Was he named after the prank telephone joke, Prince Albert in a Can?
and now we are off Second Time’s a Charm (marriage number two or more….)
5. Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud Good for Shania. She has always been a favorite of mine, although I wish she had never recorded, “Any Man of Mine”, which happens to be the most popular song wailed by drunk women at karaoke bars. And it is sung extremely poorly, every single time.
6. Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth I just love Reese and have no idea who her husband is. Therefore, it will probably last.
7. Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo Love this couple. Pretty sure Vanessa knows that Chicken of the Sea is not chicken in a can. Smart and savvy, both of them! And I did see the wedding on TV. Absolutely beautiful, even when they both jumped in the pool with wedding attire on!
8. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Congrats LeAnn, you married a total DB. Good luck with this. Expect to see you both in the Divorce List shortly….
Top 2011 Divorces:
1. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Congratulations you two. You win the most Ridiculous Wedding of the Year award, followed up by the most Ridiculous Divorce of the Year award 72 days later. I wish all the wedding vendors that gave you free stuff would send you a bill.
2. JLo and Marc Anthony Um, the only shocker is that it didn’t happen sooner. Never saw “it” with them.
3. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher They tricked me, thought they may start to have a chance. Oh. And. Dear Nikon: Dump Ashton cause he’s a loser and does nothing for the image of your cute little cameras which have been replaced by my iPhone. Mmm,k?
4. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver Wow. Power couple and after so many years. Arnold probably blames the ‘roids for his infidelities.
5. Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson Ok, I didn’t even know they were married. I prefer to always think of Ryan Reynolds as a single, hot man. Just makes me happy.
6. Melissa Gilbert and Bruce Boxleitner Called it quits after SIXTEEN years of marriage? I did catch Melissa recently on live TV, she has had so much work done to her face, she looks like a 18 year old. Now it makes sense…. Pa Ingall would be disappointed.
7. Tareq Salahi and Michaela Salahi You have to be a Real Housewives fan to know this couple, and this divorce sent me clapping and laughing with glee like a comedian with instant material. I know, I’m horrible. But seriously the weirdest two people that you’ll ever watch on TV. Poor Tareq ran out of money and lies to tell, so Michaela (super loyal) ran away with Neal Schon, a guitarist from Journey. Really?
8. Hulk Hogan and Linda Boella This gets mentioned only because they truly filed in 2009 and JUST NOW finally reached a settlement. Can you spell “bitter divorce”?

It’s five days to the wedding of the century, Prince William and Kate Middleton … and we are looking forward to seeing these nuptials. Unfortunately our RFP to be the official wedding planner, was turned down. Or rather completely ignored.
If you are a local Evansville/Owensboro resident be sure to tune into WTVW Fox 7 AM Evansville to watch the Royal Wedding live (4am) and then at 7:15am where I will co-host, live, with Lauren Matter for a wedding wrap up! It will be good times, for sure!
This wedding will be so different from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding. Let’s face it, we pretty much watched that wedding and consistently asked ourselves, “How did this old dude land this beautiful girl?” I am still convinced it was pretty much an arranged marriage.
That’s why this wedding is going to be so lovely. William and Kate are “young”. They met at University, fell in love, both are adorable and it will be exciting to watch them together. After the untimely death of Princess Diana, Britain could use a pick-me-up.
And whether you care about the Royal Wedding or not, it will affect the wedding industry with trends and design. You can practically hear the knock-off designers sharpening their pencils right now in preparation to sketch Kate’s dress as she walks down the aisle. Let’s see, she is married on a Friday, I expect to be able to buy her dress on the black market by Monday.
So yes, I will watch this fairy tale unfold, because watching two people in love commit to each other is what we do, every weekend. This one just has a little more pomp and circumstance!
Catch you on Friday! I’ll be the one on TV with bags under my eyes from getting up at 4am!Read More »
I used Google and searched ‘marriage planner’ and instead all that came up was wedding planners. Don’t get me wrong, I mean I am in the wedding business and I certainly see the need for a wedding planner… but what about the marriage?
I meet with so many brides and grooms who are literally so caught up in planning a wedding that they don’t take the time to stop and plan a marriage. Let’s face it folks, the wedding is often times a set agenda which – between the ceremony and reception – amounts to a whopping six to seven hours. The marriage is a constant variable that equates to the rest of your lives.
Especially those of you who have the wisdom and foresight to hire a wedding planner. Let them do their job, and spend some quality time with your significant other. Take time out to enjoy each others company, and plan for a lifetime. Yes, the wedding should and likely will be magical and everything you ever dreamed it would be… especially if you hire the right professionals to do the job, but the marriage – with the right amount of planning – could be even more magical for the rest of your life.
Craig, I could not have said it better myself. Thanks for your contribution!
