Downtown Shakopee's Ladies Night ROCKED the town!!

Wow, what an amazing night! We held our first ever Ladies Night in downtown Shakopee tonight and had 250 wild and crazy women walking downtown. Even the rainy nasty weather didn't keep these ladies away!!

After the success of my GNO this past February, the Shakopee Downtown Partnership put their heads together to put on a downtown wide Ladies Night and asked me to help on the committee. No one believed me that we would totally have no problem getting 250 ladies to participate, and it SOLD OUT in TWO DAYS!!

It was an incredible activity to witness! I am SO proud to say I was a part of putting this amazing event on for the ladies of Shakopee!! I hope you all had a great time! And a shout out to our wonderful committee: Lauri Glenn of the STDP, Molly Murillo of Betti Lu's, Jean Breeggemann of Ballard-Sunder Funeral Homes, Kim Baker of Brad Billing's State Farm, Kathy Klehr of Scott County Historical Society, and Crystal Quirring of Pearson Florist. You ladies ROCKED the most!!!

Why blogging is SO powerful!!!

This is what a recent bride commented on my blog the day after her wedding:
"WOW! I didn't cry the whole day, but when I got home the next afternoon and saw them on the blog, I cried like a baby! They are beautiful! Thank you so much for making our special day so amazing and memorable! I cannot wait to see them all, and if they are even half as good as the ones I saw now, I will be very happy!
Talk to you soon

What an incredible testimonial! Why wouldn't you want to blog? It's SO worth the 10 minutes!
