Getting Married May 2014!!

by @ Dreams Los Cabos Weddings RSS Feed

Hi Everyone!!

 

I am getting married on May 18th, 2014 at Dreams and need some advice... guidance.

 

We went through destinationweddings.com and I have also starting contact with Mariana.  We will hopefully have about 35 to 40 guests.  I was told that it is better to take everyone with us and to not ship favors, decorations, etc...  Any advice?  I want to make welcome bags but it may be a lot to take in our suitcases.

 

Any thoughts on the Dreams Ultimate Wedding Package??  If we book the wedding package, do we have to use their photographer?

 

Thank you!!

Watch: Get to Know the Women of Runaway June — and Find Out the Story Behind Their Unique Band Name

by Brianne Tracy @ PEOPLE.com

Meet Runaway June, a band that’s well on its way to country music superstardom.

The group — comprised of Jennifer Wayne, Naomi Cooke and Hannah Mulholland — has been dubbed the “Dixie Chicks for a new generation,” and with good reason. The band’s hit single “Lipstick” made them the first all-female trio to earn a top 25 hit on the country charts in a decade and with their new single “Wild West” hitting the airwaves, PEOPLE is sharing an exclusive video of the women sharing the story behind their band.

“We’re three women singing and just telling stories that are relevant to people in this time, and we have songs that men enjoy and women are going to love,” lead vocalist Cooke says in the clip.

The three women came up with the ‘runaway’ part of their name as they all share a similar experience of leaving their hometowns to pursue music in Nashville.

Cooke, who is one of 11 children, moved from a little island in Florida to Music City seven years ago.

“I did gigs, and tried to write songs,” she says. “I nannied, I cleaned houses, I waitressed — I did whatever I could to pursue music.”

Mulholland started writing music in her room at the age of 6 or 7 and moved to Nashville from Malibu after realizing that was the only option if she wanted to write music for a living. Wayne, the granddaughter of legendary western actor John Wayne, also knew she needed to make the move if she was serious about music.

“My grandfather gave me the western, cowboy country blood because I always loved country music,” Wayne says. “Eleven years later, here I am with the girls.”

The second part of the band’s name centers on the significance of June, in all meanings of the word, in each of their lives.

“One constant that kept coming up was June — the name June, the month June, there were just all these correlations,” Cooke explains. “So we were like, ‘Okay, maybe there’s something to June.’ I have a sister named June, Jen’s grandmother’s name is June and for Hannah it’s the month. A lot of cool things have happened to us in June.”

Wayne also notes that the band signed their record deal in June. “It’s lucky for us,” Cooke continues.

Cooke and Wayne were introduced to each other by Broken Bow Records founder Benny Brown, who suggested that they write together.Mulholland was brought into the group by Wayne through their “Malibu connection.” From there, it was history.

“We started to write together and it was magical,” Cooke says. “ brought in Hannah and we started writing the best things we had ever written. We knew there was something really special about what we had.”

Runaway June joins friends Midland this fall supporting CMT Presents: Jon Pardi’s Lucky Tonight Tour

Annotating a book is a great way to make notes on the text. It also allows you to do a deep read of the book, where you jot down your thoughts or impressions of the text. You may need to annotate a book for a class or decide to try it to deepen your reading experience. Start by selecting your annotation tool.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

Chip and Joanna Gaines Share Their Hilarious First Date Story

by Megan Stein @ PEOPLE.com

Chip and Joanna Gaines are the definition of marriage goals, but their relationship didn’t necessarily have a fairytale start.

In the first chapter of The Magnolia Storyreleased as a sneak peek today, the Fixer Upper dream team spills the details of how they met — and it wasn’t exactly love at first sight.

Joanna agreed to go out on a date with Chip after meeting him and his roommate “Hot John” — who she actually tried to approach minutes earlier, but was too shy — in the waiting room of her dad’s auto shop. She had second thoughts, however, after Chip arrived an hour and a half late to pick her up.

“He didn’t apologize for being late, either. He had so much confidence. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Only Chip could be an hour and a half late and have no one mad about it,” Joanna writes.

WATCH THIS: HGTV Stars Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri Compete to Make the Better Birdhouse

The chapter continues to describe the timeline of their relationship, which didn’t actually start until months after they first went out, when Chip (in typical guy fashion) finally called Joanna back.

“I’d made a bet with Hot John to see who could hold out the longest before calling our dates back,” Chip writes “I really wanted that fifty dollars from John! That’s the only reason I didn’t call.”

After they went out a second time, the rest was history.

azulreceptionhall's Blog - 3 Major Mistakes To Avoid While Planning An Economical Wedding Reception

by @ Best Destination Wedding Wedding Blogs

Planning a wedding is extremely stressful and more so, if you are planning to cut down on the cost wherever possible. It can be because you do not want your finance to take a toll post-marriage, or as you are simply saving up for a grand honeymoon or something else. Whatever the reason might be, make sure you plan and research well before finalizing on anything, especially when it comes to the venue and the catering services.
But then, there are many couples who commit some huge blunders in order to cut down on their budget. If you take some time out and search online, you will see that there are indeed many Private Party Venues Houston TX that offer affordable reception party packages. But then, choosing randomly, just because of the “money” factor is a strict “no-no”! Here are the most common mistakes, which you shouldn’t repeat if you don’t want your reception party to be a blunder.

  • Don’t Make the Guests Bump into Each Other – It is understandable that you are looking for all means and methods to cut down on your costs, but that doesn’t mean that you will be booking a hall so small, that all your guests would feel claustrophobic or simply bump into each other. You have to understand one thing and that is, there is no harm in planning a budget-friendly party but then, you shouldn’t cut your expenses in the wrong sectors, such as this. Hence, make sure you always book a spacious banquet hall.
  • The Location Factor – So, you are thinking of hiring a hall in a far-off stranded location, in order to save bucks? But, have you thought of the travelling costs? Also, what if you have to pay for the travelling expenses of some of your guests as well? And, what if no one turns out because of the far off locate? Well, this is another mistake most couples make and they think this would be a “hit”, only to realize that it is certainly a “miss”. Thus, only hire a venue that is located in the heart of the city. No Raised Eyebrows when it Comes to Food – Let’s be honest – do you enjoy a party which does not have some finger-licking items on the menu? No, right? So, don’t expect that your guests would enjoy your party if you cut down a lot on the catering services. And trust me, you should never do that. Unfortunately, there are many brides and grooms who think it is okay to cut down on the catering services, only to be disappointed with the unsatisfied faces of their guests. Also, it is always wiser to hire a venue that has an inbuilt catering team so that, you don’t have to hire a team separately. This will not only help you reduce the expenses, but would also be much more flexible as you don’t have to coordinate with them. There are many Wedding Reception Venues Houston TX that take care of everything starting from the wedding cake and chocolate fountain to multi-cuisine buffets and drinks; so make sure you hire one like that.
Now that you know the mistakes you need to avoid while booking Inexpensive Wedding Venues Houston TX, and planning an economical wedding party, don’t delay any further! Hurry up and start planning now.

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

RELATED: Leonardo DiCaprio Eating Girl Scout Cookies at the Oscars Is the Internet’s Best New Meme

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

Share your pregnancy story, so far

by @ Pregnancy Group: A place to chat about all things related to pregnancy RSS Feed

My story is a bit of a long one, so I'll try not to get too carried away with details. 

 

I married my husband Matt in May of 2008 and we knew that we weren't planning on having kids right away.  We said we'd "talk about it" in a year.  Well, what do you know, but I ended up getting pregnant the weekend we went away for our 1st anniversary in 2009.  A few days later, I had some major cramping.  Like so bad it made me feel like I was hot and sweaty and might pass out.  After it continued for a few hours, I had a co-worker drive me and my mom to the ER (we work on a university/hospital campus).  They did an ultrasound and couldn't see anything, but confirmed the pregnancy via blood work.  By then, the cramping had stopped.  Since they weren't able to locate the sac, they wanted to continue to monitor me, so I went in every other day for blood work to make sure the pregnancy was progressing as it should.  Unfortunately, the blood work lied!  My blood hormones were doing everything that they should in a normal and healthy pregnancy, but when they gave me another ultrasound, they located the pregnancy in my left fallopian tube.  If they had caught it earlier, they could have dissolved it via a methaltrexate shot, but since there was already a heartbeat, I needed emergency surgery and ended up losing my tube. This was super depressing b/c I wasn't all that excited about the pregnancy at first since it was a surprise but had just gotten to the excited part and I thought all was well since my blood work was good and then I heard this.  Physical recovery was fine, I was sore for a week or so and had lingering back issues for a few months, but the emotional recovery...I'd say I'm still dealing with that.

 

As soon as we were medically approved, we began TTC and I started charting on Fertility Friend (FF).  Funny enough, once I started charting, it was obvious to me that when I had "accidentally" gotten pregnant previously, it was because I ovulate late in my cycle.  I had assumed I was normal and I O'd halfway through.  Anyway, since my fertility was decreased by 50% b/c of the loss of my left tube, after a few unsuccessful months, we went to a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE).  We were with one office for almost a year and went through various medical and/or IUI cycles before I decided that I just wasn't happy there.  We had taken a few month break and were just starting back up with the doctors inn November of 2010.  I had an appt at practice #1 on 11/19 and decided I wouldn't be returning there, so went to practice #2 on 11/23 for an initial appt.  I found out on 11/26 that I was pregnant for the second time with no medical interventions.  It was definitely a surprise.  But I got the bad news on 12/06, on my 32nd birthday, that this pregnancy wasn't viable either and was most likely another ectopic but in my right tube.  We couldn't locate it on an ultrasound, so knowing my history, my doctor gave me the methaltrexate shot (in my ass cheeks, fun!) to dissolve before a heartbeat was able to be formed and I lose my remaining tube.  This was also very depressing b/c we had been trying so hard for so long and then to get that news on my birthday morning, I just felt like we were cursed.

 

As soon as AF returned, my doctor was very proactive about treatment and I had another surgery in February 2011 to remove polyps, some endo and verify that all was well with my right tube.  And we immediately started up IUI cycles and continued through until May.  In May, I experienced a very sad and unexpected tragic loss in my family, so we stepped away from TTC b/c my heart just wasn't in it.  Then I got my third surprise and unexpected BFP in August.  Of course we are super happy and I look at it as a gift from my lost brother.  I think this gift was given to us to lessen the pain of losing him.  Or to take away the focus of the grief.  We watched this pregnancy carefully and didn't announce until we were pretty sure it was safe.  In fact, I just made the announcement (besides my bosses) at work today!

 

We don't plan on finding out the sex at the next ultrasound, we think we will have them put it in an envelope and open it Christmas morning.  We were going to wait until the shower, but I decided it was something better shared with close family first.  Plus, this is the first set of holidays without my brother, so it's very difficult for my family and I think it might be good to have something positive to focus on Christmas morning rather then the sadness of who is missing.

 

We are due April 13, 2012 and I have an open mind about my "birth plan".  I like to think that I tend to the natural side of things, but I also watched my sister give birth to her youngest a few years ago and I was terrified.  I've since some to terms that we are all strong in different ways and just b/c she was natural doesn't mean I am weak if I chose an epidural.  I'm very excited to become a mom!  But also, super scared.

 

And I guess I'm not all that great at keeping stories short, am I....

Puppy Love! Miley Cyrus Falls Hard for Orphaned Pups at iHeart Radio Music Festival — and Her Sister Noah Adopts One

Puppy Love! Miley Cyrus Falls Hard for Orphaned Pups at iHeart Radio Music Festival — and Her Sister Noah Adopts One

by Christina Dugan @ PEOPLE.com

There’s no resisting some good old-fashioned puppy love!

On Saturday, stars such as Miley and Noah Cyrus, Lorde, Macklemore, French Montana and more gathered backstage at the fourth annual iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas to mix and mingle with some adorable puppies … all of which were up for adoption through #LovePup, a dog rescue foundation created by nationally syndicated radio host, Johnjay Van Es of KISS FM’s Johnjay and Rich Morning Show.

“I witnessed the magic of #LovePup this weekend at the iHeart Radio Music Festival,” Van Es exclusively tells PEOPLE. “We saw that inexplicable connection that happens when a dog and person find their soul mate. Even if they didn’t take the puppies home with them, everyone got to feel the kind of love that only a dog can give. It was a de-stresser, ice breaker and just lots off to get to see these incredibly talented artists on a human level.”

Van Es created the foundation in 2015, and has since found homes for more than 500 stray dogs while receiving the support of celebrities, such as Selena Gomez, Zedd and Enrique Iglesias, along the way.

And while celebs enjoyed the company of the furry friends over the weekend, Noah Cyrus “connected immediately” to one pup in particular.

The 17-year-old “Make Me” singer fell completely head over heels for a little one — and decided to take him home.

“Noah almost started crying ,” says Van Es. “She’s going through a breakup and needed that puppy!” (It probably helps that big sis Miley is quite the rescue animal lover.)

With the help of his wife, Blake, and their three sons — Jake, 14, Kemp, 13, and Dutch, 10 — the Van Es family has transformed their home into a full-on dog rescue center. Taking in stray dogs from around the Phoenix area and providing them with medical attention, shelter and food, the family of five is dedicated to finding forever homes for their furry friends.

“Rescuing dogs is something my wife and I have done pretty much our whole marriage,” Van Es previously told PEOPLE. “We’ll take any dog. Every dog deserves to find love.”

From the looks of it, these pups certainly found love with their celeb soul mates.

As far as #LovePup’s future? The Van Es family has big plans!

“I have all these people that want to volunteer but I don’t have the money to fund anything yet,” he says. “It would be great to get to the point where, I’d like to have a building and have a staff. I’d like to have a ‘no kill’ policy. I want to save as many dogs as I can. I would like there to be a #LovePup chapter in every city. I just need the proper funding. I think it can happen!”

How to Care for a Pug

How to Care for a Pug

by @ How to of the Day

Pugs are a friendly and goofy dog breed that love attention almost as much as people love their folded-up faces. Those folds need special care, though, to keep your pug happy and healthy. Create a consistent routine of meals, play time, and quiet time for your pug, and make sure you provide them with regular fold cleanings, ear cleanings, nail trims, and baths. It can take a little extra work, but with some attention you can care for all of your pug’s unique needs.

Demi Lovato Is Making a Permanent Mark on the DJ Group Cheat Codes to Celebrate ‘No Promises’ Going Gold

Demi Lovato Is Making a Permanent Mark on the DJ Group Cheat Codes to Celebrate ‘No Promises’ Going Gold

by Mark Gray @ PEOPLE.com

The guys from Cheat Codes are going to remember Demi Lovato forever.

In the spring, the DJ collective released a song called “No Promises” with the pop star, and the catchy song went gold in the United States. Due to the success, Lovato decided to get the group a little present—the kind that lasts a lifetime.

“She’s paying for us to get tattoos,” member Matthew Russell told PEOPLE on Saturday at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas.

According to the group, Lovato wanted to get the guys a gift and they mentioned their love of ink. So Lovato, an avid tattoo enthusiast, is setting them up with her artist at Bang Bang tattoos in New York City.

While they don’t know is if the “Cool For The Summer” singer will get inked with them at the same time, it’s approaching decision time for Cheat Codes.

“I’ve been going back and forth and still trying to decide,” Trevor Dahl said. “I might get ‘Too Easy’ on me.”

Russell said, “I might get two fingers crossing, like ‘No Promises,’ but make it like a skeleton hand. I’ll always remember like the song ‘No Promises,’ and be like, ‘Demi got this for me.'”

Finally, Kevin Ford is thinking that size matters. “I’ll probably get a small palm tree on the face,” he said, pointing to his eye, “something small.”

Cockatoos are intelligent, inquisitive birds that need lots of living space. Choose a cockatoo cage that is at least three times as wide as your bird’s wingspan and at least 4 feet or 120 centimeters tall. A rectangular cage made of stainless steel is a good pick. Make sure the cage’s doors lock and its bars are horizontal, not vertical.

Marryposaroyalevents' Blog - Santorini Local Wedding Trends

by @ Best Destination Wedding Wedding Blogs

Wedding traditions In Santorini


Getting married in Greece is a really big deal throughout the centuries. All over Greece there are some very special customs and traditions. In Santorini there are some interesting trends when it comes to modern Weddings. Especially for those of you that are interested in having something unique for their most special day, below I give you 4 local trends that all weddings in Santorini should include:

Music

Local Musicians:
Tradition on the island has it that the bride is escorted by local musicians throughout the way from her house to the venue of the wedding. Traditional wedding songs are sung throughout the way and sometimes the musicians make some lyrics on the way saying a story for the bride and groom. The most traditional musical instruments are the Violin and Lute or Outi in Santorini and the musicians are always dressed in the traditional costumes of the island.

Favors

Koufeto:
Koufeto is a local Cycladic sweet that is served to all guests after the ceremony of the Wedding. Tradition has is that the first to taste the Koufeto are the bride and Groom and then all the rest of the family and guests. Koufeto is a combination of honey and almonds prepared in a special local recipe. The custom started many years ago and honey was offered as a sample of the sweet years of marriage to come for the couple and the almonds as a symbol of prosperity so that the couple will have strong and healthy offsprings.

Special Events

Donkey Ride:
As Donkeys are the most famous animals on the island of Santorini , they can be the best means of transportation for the Wedding Couple. The story behind this trend is that long ago, before any wheeled vehicles appeared on the island, Donkeys used to take people everywhere they needed to go and so the Bride and Groom also reached and left the Wedding Venue traditionally on them. Since luxury vehicles have arrived on the island Donkeys are mostly used for short rides that provide the couples not only a genuine feeling but also some unforgettable memories and great photos…

Caldera Cruise:
The Caldera of Santorini is a really unique place worldwide. Most of the couples decide to travel to Greece and more specifically in Santorini in order to gaze that scenery and have that amazing background on their wedding memories. If you plan your wedding in Santorini this is a really special idea and something that more and more couples choose nowadays is having a wedding reception on board. Combining a newlywed’s celebration and a Caldera cruise is the ultimate wedding experience. Morning or Sunset, Traditional Wooden boat or a Catamaran Sailing Yacht, this experience will stay with you forever.

Can’t wait to tie the knot in a traditional way in Santorini Island surrounded by breathtaking views at every angle? We don't blame you. Contact Marryposa Royal Events today to talk all things wedding and start planning the day of your dreams.

Catherine Zeta-Jones Reveals Her Makeup and Skincare Secrets: 'Don't Pick'

Catherine Zeta-Jones Reveals Her Makeup and Skincare Secrets: 'Don't Pick'

by Jillian Ruffo @ PEOPLE.com

When Catherine Zeta-Jones is dishing beauty advice — we take notes. The 48-year-old Feud star just revealed some of  her skincare secrets in a new interview.

Along with eating well, exercising regularly (tap dancing is one of her go-to methods) and avoiding alcohol, Zeta-Jones relies on a strict beauty regimen in order to maintain her look. One of the most important? “Don’t forget to check your whole body for new and different shape freckles, not just your face, but the bits you don’t look at every day,” the star tells W of the best advice from her dermatologist.

And her facialist’s advice is a bit simpler: “Don’t pick.”

RELATED PHOTOS: The Beauty Launches We’re Loving in 2017

As for the rest of her skincare routine, she relies on three “skincare favorites”: Rhonda Allison Pumpkin E Serum, Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial and Methode Physiodermie Soft Face Biopeeling, and adds that Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is the most underrated product.

On a regular day, Zeta-Jones says says she never leaves the house without a small army of products. A “small Mason Pearson hair brush, Charlotte Tilbury mascara, MAC Spice Lip Liner, Marc Jacobs Slow Burn lip color, Clé de Peau Intensive Eye Contour Cream and the foundation. That’s all for now, because the truth is nothing can be done properly in five minutes.”

But the best trick she picked up from the pros she’s worked with through the years comes from makeup artist Dick Page — who once advised her to “blend well.”

So if you’re on a mission for flawless skin and makeup, just get your hands on a few of her faves.

What’s your favorite beauty secret from the star? Sound off below.

We host a party to celebrate a special occasion and it is necessary on our part to make the party worth remembering. So, make sure you take care of all the necessary arrangements to make your party a successful one. The few things that you must look into, while hosting a holiday party are the venue, food, availability of parking area and decorations.

So, if the thought of hosting a party bothering you, there is a solution to your problem. There are many Holiday Party Venues Houston TX, that provide you with the right kind of decoration and food services, that too under your budget. But, you must keep in mind that there are certain common mistakes that people often make while organizing a holiday party. Such mistakes can actually lead to a disaster!
So, why don’t you take a look at the various mistakes that people often make while organizing a party and simply avoid repeating them. Read on to know more.

· Not arranging for good food- An important part of any party is good food. You need to put in a lot of thought before deciding on the menu, when you are organizing a private party. Decide on the kind of cuisine you are going to opt for and the number courses you want. As a good host, it is very important for you to arrange good food for your guests.

· Choosing the wrong venue- If you organizing a Christmas Party Houston TX or New Year Party, it is very important for you to choose the right kind of venue. Firstly, calculate the number of guests that you are inviting to the party and then choose the venue accordingly. If the size of the venue is small in comparison to the number of guests invited to the party, your guests might feel restricted and uncomfortable. Plan the venue according to the requirements of the event.

· Not taking help from anyone - Another important mistake that people often make while organizing a party, is thinking that they can manage everything by themselves. It is good idea to take help from friends and family while you are hosting a party. Organizing a party is not an easy task, infact it involves a lot of research and decision making on your part. Doing everything by yourself might overburden you and the party might not be as you wanted it to be. Hence, one of the best ideas is taking help from others, asking for their opinions and advices before selecting a venue, a caterer or a decorator.

Now that you have a clear idea about the mistakes that you should avoid while organizing a party, hurry up and make it a memorable one.

Last month, True Botanicals launched a much-needed new line, BASICS.  I wrote all about it here, but something I did not discuss much is that it is 100% safe for pregnancy.  Personally, after a lot of research, I felt very comfortable using True Botanicals CLEAR line on my acne-prone throughout my second pregnancy, but some […]

Best Destination Wedding

Page 1 of 2 - Hi, My Dear Ladies of The BDW!

A 'Nerdy Eighth Grader' and a Tween Star! Find Out What The Voice's Season 13 Coaches Were Like at the Age of 13

by Brianne Tracy @ PEOPLE.com

Long before they were household names and hit record makers, the coaches of The Voice were just your average teens (with the exception of Miley Cyrus, that is.)

In a clip shared exclusively with PEOPLE, returning coaches of the NBC hit reality singing competition series (premiering Monday night) Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cyrus, as well as newcomer Jennifer Hudson, are celebrating the show’s 13th season by sharing what they were like at 13 years old.

“I was somewhere singing, I was somewhere dreaming of these moments right now that I’m living,” Hudson says in the clip. “I was the little black girl dreaming up the dreams, sitting on the church steps across the street from my house. That’s what I was doing.”

Cyrus, on the other hand, had already reached child stardom at the age of 11 with her role as the title character on Disney’s Hannah Montana.

“When I was 13 years old, I was filming Hannah Montana so I was working,” Cyrus explains. “I know Adam and everyone else will have all these stories of school — I was working.”

As for Levine’s experience in school at age 13, he remembers being the “nerdy eighth grader” of his class.

“I was still really into sports. I was really into music, but I was still kind of straddling between the two,” the Maroon 5 singer says. “I was not cool. I’m pretty sure I’m not that cool still, but I’m cooler now than I was when I was at 13.”

He adds: “Believe it or not, I was a little bit timid. I wasn’t particularly outgoing at the time.”

Shelton, who is pictured in the video at age 13 with a raccoon and a dog, says he was “pretty weird” at the time.

“I was fascinated by animals and country music videos,” he says. “At the time there was CMT, and I would just sit and watch it for hours in the summertime. In the middle of the day when it was too hot to go outside, I would watch CMT as much as I could.”

The Voice premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Geisha Williams, First Latina CEO on the Fortune 500, Embodies the American Dream

Geisha Williams, First Latina CEO on the Fortune 500, Embodies the American Dream

by Stephanie Fairyington @ PEOPLE.com

Geisha Williams, a 56-year-old Cuban immigrant who helms PG&E, became the first Latina CEO to make the Fortune 500, the magazine announced on Friday. In March, Williams took the reins of the 17.7 billion electric utility company after heading its Electricity operations for ten years.

As reported by Fortune, the business executive was born Geisha Jimenez in Cuba to political refugees and immigrated to the United States at five-years-old in 1962. To make ends meet, her hardworking father worked three jobs, including employment at a factory and at restaurant as a dishwasher. The family eventually saved up enough money to buy a small grocery story, where Williams learned a love of math working the cash register. She enrolled in an Engineering program at the University of Miami and randomly found a summer job at Florida Power & Light Company (FLP), where she ended up staying for more than 20 years, leaving in 2007 for PG&E.

Under her stewardship, the latter modernized its electricity grid, phasing out the need for meter readers and connected more solar powers than any other company in the country.

Williams didn’t always envision herself running a multi-billion dollar company. A chat with a former manager at FLP helped her see herself in the role. As Fortune reported, he said: “Someday, somebody has to run this company. Why not you?”

That conversation catalyzed a shift in her self-perception: “ was such a turning point,” she told Fortune. “I went from thinking I could be a manager to thinking I could do something much bigger than that.”

Fortune reported that 2017 was a record-breaking year for female CEOs with 32 on the list, a staggering 65 percent increase from 2016. Williams was one of only two minority women to make the cut: Indra Nooyi, the CEO of PepsiCo, was the other.
