Caution: Unmarked Police Cars!

*112
ADD THIS NUMBER TO YOUR MOBILE CONTACTS AS "POLICE DISPATCHER."





It was about 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, and Lauren was driving to visit a friend. 
An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. 
Lauren's parents have always told her never to pull over
for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.

Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice,
and promptly called *112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. 

She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. 

The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, 

and he told her to keep
driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.

Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the
unmarked car behind her. 

One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded
the car behind. 

They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to
the ground.
The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.


I never knew about the *112 Cell Phone Feature, but especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car.
Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a safe place.


Send this to every woman (and man) you know; it may save a life. This applies to ALL 50 states

DIY Car Kit Ideas: List of Items

A DIY car kit is not the same thing as an emergency kit - they serve different purposes.

A true emergency kit should go in the back of the trunk, including items such as band-aids, Neosporin, and other trauma or survival aids. DIY car kits have non-emergency items ---but used for your own personal "emergencies," such as spilling ketchup on your shirt or a sudden headache when driving on the road.

**A DIY car kit should be in a small to medium sized container, with a zipping or buckling component to ensure the items stay inside. It can be a flimsy material bag, or a sturdy plastic container. But make sure it is small enough that it will not take up a lot of space in your back seat. The ideal size would be able to fit underneath the seat or on the floorboard.

See the items below to configure your own Car Kit according to what YOU think you'll need "in case of emergency."

6-Month DIY Wedding: The Timeline Checklist

First of all, what do I mean by a "DIY Wedding?"

A wedding that is at least 75% of planning and services done by YOU. This means NO fancy venues, expensive wedding cakes, unnecessary rentals, catering, and more.

If this isn't you, then you will not find this DIY Wedding Checklist helpful...at all.
If this is you, then read on and enjoy!

On the side note....

Which one are you?:

Just got engaged (but having a short engagement -- 4 to 6 months)? No worries. You'd be surprised how many people pull of an entire DIY wedding in less than 4 or 5 months, so if they can, so can you. Just follow the Wedding Checklist and Timeline below:


Not yet "officially" engaged (but know you are about to be)? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to plan ahead, especially if you are planning the wedding all by yourself. No, you absolutely don't need to buy anything yet (and shouldn't) but you must plan ahead and know exactly what you want to do. That way, once the engagement finally comes, yo…
