Monday Quote

From Write On
Such a great quote!! Just a reminder we can choose to be happy by accepting some of those annoyances in life, and celebrating the good fortunes we are blessed with everyday. So kiss your life this Monday, and choose to put a smile on, no matter what life hands you this week. It might just prove to be the best, most memorable week yet!

Halloween Fright Night 2011

Halloween Fright Night 2011 was held Saturday night at Double B Party Barns, and was a huge success. We will definitely be making this fun filled evening an annual event. We had an amazing DJ who played a great mix of music, which had everyone up and moving until 3 in the morning. The vast majority of people dressed up, which was awesome and really added to the fun. The costumes were extremely creative, as were the decorations we worked on for the past month. All our hard work was well worth it, and I can't wait to start planning next year's Fright Night 2012!!

Wedding Chapel Inspiration

We will soon be building a chapel at Double B Party Barns, which has me really excited! It will be great for people wanting to have their wedding and reception in one location. We have a grassy area, but given Lubbock's unpredictable weather, I can't ever 100% assure people they will be able to have their ceremony on the premises. I have been looking at cute country chapels, and am loving so many!!


I can't wait for the construction to begin on the chapel, as well as the first wedding that will take place in it!!

Business Card Do's & Dont's

This is a great article on the Do's and Dont's of Business Cards. We will be hosting the Young Professionals of Greater Lubbock's monthly meeting at the Double B Party Barns, and I have been encouraging everyone to attend and to be sure and bring business cards with them in order to help promote themselves while networking. 

I recently had new business cards made, and I had a difficult time deciding what information was relevant enough to be on my new cards. I think I did alright, but this article would have made it all a little easier.

Monday Quote

The more I experience in life, the more these words really make sense. This quote reminds me of just how truly blessed I am to have a handful of people who really matter in my life. It's easy to take these important people for granted, so I always appreciate a good reminder of just what a lucky girl I am!

Halloween Soiree Necessities

This tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets is just too fantastic!! About 10 of us are putting together a Halloween Soiree at Double B Party Barns and I think this should, without a doubt, greet all the ghouls and goblins at the front door.
I also think these dressed up drinks are to die for that How Does She made up:

And being a girl who loves all things rhinestoned and glittered up, these teaspoons are right up my alley!!

Oh how I can't wait for our dazzling Halloween Soiree!!!

Redneck Wine Glasses

How adorable are these Redneck Wine Glasses?!? I have seen them around town and on the internet and have been dying to have some at Double B Party Barns, but I want several of them, and I hated to pay $15 a piece or more for them. So here is a fantastic tutorial for creating them. They look easy enough and fairly inexpensive, so I think I will be trying out this little craft very soon!
