I bet you are getting excited for the big BD shoot on Friday! I can't wait to hear about! YOu'll have to tell me all the details so I can figure out if I should do it or not!

      sammysgirl - good luck at your meeting today!! I think you are making the right decision to go back to school and get a job you enjoy. There is nothing worse then going to a job you despise everyday!

          .

          Very wellput Shellk--- Best of luck Sammysgirl--- I know you won't regret it if it's something you really want to do and enjoy. My FMIL just retired from being an ER nurse for 40+ years, and her life was very hectic. Working nights and holidays all while raising 3 kids- but I know she wouldn't take it back for a minute!!!

          Shellk for MOTM and Jetsbride for Mrs!!

                Hi Everyone!

                My name is Lynn and i have just confirmed to have my wedding at the RIU RM Dec. 4th 2010. I'm super excited to be having it there and even more excited to have found this forum about the place. I've spent a lot of time reading and you guys seem to know a lot. its comforting that the same questions i have other have had too.

                On a side note i have also just posted a :feels too good to be true i just won a free vacation post". i'll copy and paste what i wrote there because i'm really confused and would love your insight...... please see below
                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


                I went to a bridal expo a few weeks ago and today i got a call that i had won a prize. Apparently i won an all inclusive vacation but in order to get it i have to sit through a 90 minute preview presentation. the organization is National Health Styles see website below.

                National Healthstyles Foundation

                Since we "won" the drawing we are guranteed the prize, however i'm a bit skeptical of this since its seems "too good to be true" . Has anyone heard of this foundation? been to a preview or have any idea of its legit?

                Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

                Lynn

                  A few words of caution regarding the too good to be true prizes. My FI and I went to a few of these and you WILL get what they promise HOWEVER you have to jump through a lot of hoops and in the long run you probably won't use the prize you earn.

                  We entered drawings at a local bridal show in LA and we went on two presentations. Although we "earned" our prizes which was an all expenses paid vacation to Cabo for 3 days and 2 nights AND a 2 night hotel stay in Palm Springs (or a few other cities to choose from) we never actually got to use them. For one thing, the 3 days and 2 nights in Cabo didn't seem like enough since we would be traveling 2 out of the 3 days. There was still a $100 tax each that we had to pay (and I believe we did) but then the days we requested were never available and it had to be Tues-Thurs, blah...blah...blah. Basically we wasted our time going to the presentations and never got to use our prizes

                  One other time we did go on another presentation for time shares in Las Vegas for 2 tickets to Mamma Mia which we did get and used (worth $150). In hindsight, we were there a lot longer than the actual presentation and wouldn't do it again since it ruined our day. They provided transportation to and from our hotel but we had to wait for 20 minutes before the presentation which lasted an hour, and then had to wait another 20-30 minutes for them to issue our prizes so we could leave and then instead of a taxi back it was a group shuttle that we had to wait to fill up before they would leave to drop us back off at our hotel. So, what was supposed to be a one hour presentation actually ended up wasting a total of 8 hours of our lives (4 hours each) for a lousy $150 while we were on vacation. Next time we will pay for the tickets ourselves instead of earning them the hard way.

                    Welcome Lynn!!!! I am so glad that we have another RPRM bride! I suggest that you read this thread from start to finish, even though it takes some time. There is a wealth of information!

                    As for your National Health Styles drawing, I checked the better business bureau, and there are no complaints about them, but also no info. I googled them, and I don't think you won a 'drawing' for this vacation, but it is just a way to bring in people for their seminar. FI has done this before, and he says there are no strings attached, but that they try to sell you on numerous things, and it may not be worth your time, as they may try to make you attend numerous seminars. Just some info to think about!!!

                    Thanks for your info Nora- we must have been writing at the same time!!!

                    Welcome again!!

                      Welcome Lynn!! Great to have another RPRM bride. Trust me, you will not be disappointed one little bit with the hotel!!

                      I wish I could give some insight on your "free vacation" however I have never been. I have heard you have to pay all the taxes still though.
