Happy Chinese New Year! Welcome Year of the Dragon..

If the Dragon is your Chinese zodiac sign like me,

then you were born in the following years:

“1904 * 1916 * 1928 * 1940 * 1952 * 1964 * 1976 * 1988 * 2000

“THE SIGN OF THE DRAGON

The key to the Dragon personality is that Dragons are the free spirits of the Zodiac. Conformation is a Dragon’s curse. Rules and regulations are made for other people. Restrictions blow out the creative spark that is ready to flame into life. Dragons must be free and uninhibited. The Dragon is a beautiful creature, colorful and flamboyant. An extroverted bundle of energy, gifted and utterly irrepressible, everything Dragons do is on a grand scale – big ideas, ornate gestures, extreme ambitions. However, this behavior is natural and isn’t meant for show. Because they are confident, fearless in the face of challenge, they are almost inevitably successful. Dragons usually make it to the top. However, Dragon people be aware of their natures. Too much enthusiasm can leave them tired and unfulfilled. Even though they are willing to aid when necessary, their pride can often impede them from accepting the same kind of help from others. Dragons’ generous personalities give them the ability to attract friends, but they can be rather solitary people at heart. A Dragon’s self-sufficiency can mean that he or she has no need for close bonds with other people.

Bridal Bazaar was a success!

As you can probably see, the girls and I had a great time decorating our booth, setting up our spinning prize wheel of vendors and meeting all of the blushing and excited brides and their bridal parties. It was a busy day and our booth was packed with prize winners!

We were so excited to give out to our Loew’s Coronado Spa Membership grand prize to: Jasmine

Four lucky winners got a free Bootcamp workout session at the beach or park for the bride and three bridesmaids!

We saw a lot of great vendors at the Bridal Bazaar, like our neighbors Crunchtime Popcorn. Did anyone get to try their ice-cream? What did you think?
