Sulley Visited Hanover NH Home of Dartmouth College and He Didn’t Come See Me

Sulley has school spirit! Sulley was seen in Hanover, NH just about 45 minutes away from me this past weekend and he didn’t stop by my house but at least he was showing his school spirit.

Tribute to Pixar Sunday

Monsters University producer Kori Rae and student Sulley attended the Dartmouth vs Yale homecoming football game on Saturday. During halftime the Dartmouth band played a selection of music from Monsters University while the crowd went wild watching Sulley and Kori parade the field and saluted the fans at the 50 yard line.

Sunday evening was the highlight with the Dartmouth Film Award and Tribute to Pixar presented by The Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College.  The night began with a moving Pixar tribute reel followed by Sulley escorting Director Dan Scanlon and Kori to the stage for a moderated Q&A and showcase of bonus features “Monthropology,” “Scare Games,” and “Paths to Pixar.”

Our Visit to Famous Footwear in Bedford, NH

On Saturday, September 28, 2013 my daughter and I ventured out to Bedford Mall in Bedford, NH to take part in the Grand Opening Event of a new location for Famous Footwear. Chili in hand we printed driving directions and, while she made a sarcastic comment about me being lost before we even left the driveway, we had a great bonding experience on the one hour ten minute drive to Famous Footwear in Bedford, NH.

Upon our arrival my daughter was more interested in the balloons on the outside of the store, that is until she entered the doors to Famous Footwear. Shoes everywhere. People everywhere. Sales associates greeting you with a smile and a hand to help. A live DJ on site so that the customers could enjoy an upbeat time while participating in the exciting Grand Opening Event.

You know when you enter some stores and it’s as if you feel intimidated by the staff and are fearful to even approach them, or worse yet the associates do not even approach you to assist?! At Bedford, NH Famous Footwear location we had great customer service, they had a larger than normal staff on hand in order to provide the best customer service possible during the large grand opening event. There was a warm, happy feeling about this location of Famous Footwear. The setup made it easy to navigate to shoes of interest, the clearance racks were towards the back with easy to navigate shelves.

My daughter was able to have her feet checked for sizing, which was good, we thought she was a 7 1/2 woman’s but in all reality she is closer to a 9 woman’s. I am a 9 1/2 woman’s, sadly she is going to have her Mama’s big feet but thankfully for Famous Footwear’s huge selection of styles and prices, us big feet woman are able to find a shoe style that works for every foot type. My daughter had a blast trying on various types of shoes!

I had shoe goggles on, seriously! There are so many different styles of shoes that I would have loved to purchase that day but alas I was there to get my daughter a new pair of shoes. My daughter is actually wearing her new Famous Footwear shoes today to school, shown above in image to the left (black pair of dress boots she is holding).

While we clearly had a great time at the Bedford Mall, Bedford, NH location of Famous Footwear, I would like to share my overall feelings about this particular location of Famous Footwear:

  • Provides a warm, friendly, welcoming shopping environment.
  • Sales associates show they have been educated on all shoe types.
  • Store setup is easy to navigate and organized by shoe type in a proper way.
  • Plenty of parking spaces at the Bedford Mall parking lot.
  • Variety of prices for all budgets to be able to afford.

Will I return to this Famous Footwear location? I say yes. The location really made me feel so welcomed that I do believe my family and I will visit the Bedford Mall Famous Footwear location in the future.

Disclosure: I received a gift card for Famous Footwear, however, all opinions and experiences are that of my own and my daughter’s.

Having the Best Photography During Your Wedding

When I was married it was in the backyard, a simple wedding just the way I would prefer it and my aunt took most of the pictures during the wedding. My aunt did an amazing job capturing that wedding, and those pictures have been saved for my ex husband and my son’s to enjoy. While having a family member take photographs during a wedding saves money for sure, there are some who prefer a more extravagant wedding with professional photographers and in that case you must be sure to check out all of the options.

Many companies are out there providing exceptional wedding photography options such as halifax wedding photography.  When you pick a wedding photographer you will want to have one that is not only going to capture planned photo moments but also be there to snap photos of various moments that maybe even you did not see. It’s always fun to look back at the moments that your photographer captured during the wedding that you were not even aware of happening.

Kisses For My Lil Princess

I firmly believe the best photographs, wedding or just every day life, are best captured when someone is not posing for that photo. Capturing a moment in the memory of a photograph makes for a cherished memory you can enjoy for years to come. Shown above is a picture of my sweet daughter at my wedding that my aunt captured and I have always loved. It’s a moment of me nuzzling her as I call it, a love kiss with my nose so to speak. A picture perfect moment.

Quite simply put, it’s best to have whom ever you wish to take the photos during your wedding but they must capture wedding photography halifax that is planned and unplanned. Without the unplanned moments captured during your wedding you are not getting the big picture of that wedding day to look back upon. Even though I am divorced, I still cherish all of the moments captured by my aunt on my wedding day, they are memories that my children can look back upon and smile.
