BlackBride

I remember my wedding day like it was yesterday. We had 6 months to plan our wedding. Well my mother-in-law and mother took care of everything…such great wedding planners. I learned from the BEST! Lol My husband and I have now been married for 21 years. Wow! P.S. I think I am gonna renew our vows…Shhhhh don’t tell my husband! Lol

We're all looking for that charming guy or beautiful woman to compliment us and a team to make it happen. Look no further SooSooTasty Team is here to guide you in every way. But the first place to start is the Black Bride Show there are so many ideas and options to choose from. You can experience this day with your bridesmaid's, fiance’, parents and friends. As a planner we will be able to narrow down many ideas in just one stop. Planner…check, cake..check, inviatations…check, location…check, food & beverage…check, dress & shoes …check, d├ęcor…check, bouquet…check and travel agent…check. Trust me you want forget anything after we leave Black Bride!

My Chocolate Pink 70's Birthday Party

I am a girl who loves ALL THINGS PINK! Except my House...Pepto Bismol and maybe my car! lol
My Birthday Charity celebration was was about Shopping, Tasting and Sipping for a great cause. Each party guest was asked to bring toiletries to donate to local shelters in honor of my birthday. I love giving back and this was a great way to do it.

Day 1 Tour De SoSo (Chocolate Pink Dinner) started out at Behnnienna Japenesse Steak House with drinks and conversation. The 1 hour and 30min wait was not gonna happen! Thanks to my business partner and friends Tawana T-Baby Randall & Robb Haskell the hunt for a dinner location was on! lol
They called several places in the area and Longhorn on Piedmont Road set it out for us and we had a lovely time. There was food, drinks, SooSooTasty Treats (BALLS), Goodie Bags filled with chocolate, comedy from the waiters and photos of course. I really enjoyed my guest and wouldn't have traded them for the world.

This year my attire was from the same boutique "It's You Too" and my accessories are from BAKERS Shoe Store of Cumberland Mall.

I scored this sexy pink piece last year for my Birthday Dinner And Birthday Photo Shoot from the same boutique.


When was the last time you donated to a worthy cause? I love giving back because it could have always been me. Here are a few tips on how to give back and what procedures to follow.
How Do You Pick a Charity or Cause for Your Donation?
Need and Mission
I pick charities that I support based on my life experiences and also based on the need. Some of the larger charities have plenty of support so many times I choose to support smaller ones- again, based on the need and the mission of the charity. As a breast cancer survivor for instance, I choose to support our local Cancer Society instead of supporting it nationally. I feel like that is the best use of the money that I donate and I also donate my time locally.
Personal Experience
I choose a charity I have worked with and had experience with. I tend to choose charities that are local rather than national. For example, the local chapter of the Red Cross or a specific Red Cross campaign, like disaster assistance for people in my immediate area (floods in Iowa in 2008).
Where I Know and am Known
I give to charities that I'm involved with. I volunteer, attend their performances, know the people on the board. That is giving I feel safe with.

So what are you waiting for start GIVING!
 

Until next time see you at the next Charity Event which is coming November 17/2012 and yes there will be SWEET Treats...Tastefully SoSo
