We love Pinterest and weddings at Shindigz and we found this great story involving. It involves a 25-year-old Dallas woman who used Pinterest to pin elements she wanted to include in her dream wedding. She pinned everything, including the shade of lipstick to wear, her thank you notes, flowers and her dress. But she wasn’t even engaged. She did have a boyfriend, and she pinned a ring too. One weekend her boyfriend had a surprise for her, instead of celebrating an anniversary, he proposed! To celebrate they went to a hotel where he surprised her with all of the elements of her dream wedding she’d been secretly planning and organizing for years, based largely on her Pinterest pins.

If you’re a Michael J. Fox fan, you’ll be thrilled to learn he’s returning to TV on a regular basis this week. Fox, doesn’t want to call it an official comeback because he says he never really went anywhere. Fox was diagnosed when had early symptoms in 1991. He has starred in “Family Ties” and three “Back to the Future” movies. He worked another 10 years on “SpinCity” in 2000. The new “The Michael J. Fox Show” premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. on NBC.

And I bet you’ve never given any thought about what you wear when you take a trip to the zoo, unless it’s to dress with comfortable walking shoes, right?
But now you may want to add, no animal prints to that list. One safari park in England has banned all animal prints. Even animal print bouncers have been hired to enforce the new dress code. Why you ask? Apparently zookeepers have noticed that the animals were becoming puzzled when they saw guests who were dressed in animal-print fabric.
If someone wears the same pattern to the animal’s coat, they can become over friendly, afraid or aggressive.
This was definitely a good year for the Emmy Awards television ratings. Viewership was up an estimated 30 percent over last year. Experts say football helped.

An update on the Powerball Million Dollar Lottery winner out of South Carolina. He’s choosing to stay anonymous after winning 399 million dollars. But we do know a bit more about him. It was only the second time he’d ever played the lottery. He went into a gas station to buy buns for his wife and they didn’t have nay so he bought several Powerball tickets instead.
And here’s a great story out of Atlanta. When Willie and Carol Fowler’s only daughter cancelled her wedding 40 days before she was set to walk down the aisle, her parents were faced with a venue, food and entertainment that had all been paid for. But instead of cancelling everything and losing their deposits, they decided to change the guest list to 200 homeless people. The event was titled ‘The First Annual Fowler Family Celebration of Love,’ and the family says it plans on hosting another charity dinner next year.
The 65th Primetime Emmys have come and gone. Did you watch? What did you think? I’d love to hear your feedback. There were some surprises in the winners including Stephen Colbert over Jon Stewart…and losers, acceptance speeches, wardrobe…what are your thoughts on how host Neil Patrick Harris did?
How about the After-Parties? A section of the Los AngelesConvention Center was transformed into an “EnchantedForest,” complete with trees sprouting from the floor, for the Governors Ball celebrants. Hungry and thirsty guests indulged in filet mignon, short ribs and a rotating circular stage featured live bands and DJs playing dance music.
Winners had an extra incentive to hit the party: They could get their new Emmy statuettes engraved with their names at the winners circle. Meanwhile, Emmy losers had a party of their own across town.
Next time you see Mick Jagger rocking out, remember this: he’s going to be a 70 year old GREAT-grandfather soon.
The concept of Fun It Forward is one of giving so others can have fun. It fits right in with Shindigz company goal to Make Life More Fun and in 2013 the Shindigz Party FUNd is on track to give away $25,000!
This week the Shindigz Party FUNd is partnering with Rachel Guzman, our $400 Fun It Forward Friday winner.
Hi! My name is Rachel, and I am attending my first year at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri. This is a dry campus school, so getting everyone in the school together that isn’t for a certain organization is very hard…To break the ice, I thought about having a HUGE Halloween block party on my street the week of our Homecoming. Everyone could dress up and play life size board games, dance to DJs, have a house decorating contest, costume contests, etc. Also, we could have school organizations set up booths to help promote them.
I talked it over with other students and they think it would be an awesome idea to get the whole entire school together for one fun night. I am a full time student on top of working with the sports teams after school, so winning would help us with the party along with funding future ones. Everyone is begging for a get together to meet other students, so this is the way to do just that!
Other Party FUNd winners announced this week include Heather Miller who will be hosting a Halloween Party for her 16 young nieces and nephews and Shelia Garrett whose daughter is turning 21.
We want to hear your Fun It Forwardideas to Make Life More Fun. Submit your idea through the Party Fund App on Shindigz Facebook page. Currently we are distributing $400 every Friday along with smaller amounts to other winners.
