When you go to buy bread in the grocery store, have you ever wondered which is the freshest, so you 'squeeze' for freshness or softness? ( I dont care I still will always be a squeezer! Bread and bagels. Did you know that bread is delivered fresh to the stores five days a week? Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day has a different color (It's almost like days of the week underwear! If it's Sat and it's red you know it's Aunt Flo who decides to come over when she pleases! Look at the twist ties... They are: Monday = Blue Tuesday = Green Thursday = Red Friday = White Saturday = Yellow. So if today was Thursday, you would want a red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping. Don't forget Gatorade for Migraine Headaches!!! PowerAde won't work. If you have a dehydration migraine this may not work so well. Go for the narcotics instead. Ha! I love this! I am going to post bridal gown remedies in a few days! xox Sam

Hey Sam, I've been watching you on Who's Wedding is it Anyway? for over a year. When I found your blog the other day, I got really excited. I am a public relations student and aspiring wedding planner and I love the way that you handle yourself. Do you know any event planning companies or wedding planners in San Antonio, Texas that you would recommend that I send my resume to? I live in Florida now, but I'm moving there after I graduate.

Thank you!!! I spend quite a bit of my time trying to find ways to make life and the planning experience better!

Tanya, I look like a madman half the time searching for natural alternatives when accidents do happen. Or when you need a more natural approach.

I break down what sounds crazy and continue to find new remedies on top of what I have hidden in the planners bible!

My next post is about the wedding dress. I think this one is perfect for any planner or bride.

Thank you for the compliments.

I am glad you ejoy reading them!

I devote my time to ensuring our clients recieve fab service. There's another "calling" for me. To give back to my peers that aspire to be the next "best" fancy pants somebody! Those who play it safe standing behind me, will fail. I do serve as a warning to others and yes, I'm nutty. It's who I am & it's not going to change, as it works. Feel free to comment & join me on what could be the best road trip EVER!

Not That Sassi Planner Again???
