The joy of txt blogging... that I can write posts from my phone where ever we may be! We've been in NYC for just a few days and just having a ball. Today we finally made our way to Museum of Natural History and had probably one of the best meals in a long time at the legendary Delmonico's. At the end of the day, we walked over 17,500 steps!

Tomorrow we are headed to Washington D.C. Hooray!

my 300th post...

A year ago today we were traveling to our New Orleans/Carribean Cruise trip. We just got engaged and we barely told a soul. Today, we are married and in NYC, on the 49th floor watching the rain hits the streets of Manhatten. Life has changed soo much that I can't imagine ever being like it was just one year ago. I'm married and though it feels soo different, life before it seems so distant. I'm 100% happy with my life and know it will only get better.

For Christmas, we did the usual, 24th dinner at his uncle's, went to midnight mass (at 1030pm) and opended presents! Then on Christmas morning at his parents. It's like tradition now. This year we brought our little rugrat in his santa outfit to spread a little joy. He even got presents! :)

I'm just so thankful for everything and everyone in my life. My relationships with my friends have grown tremendously and I can't even express how much I love each and every one of them. My relationships with my family and his have developed beyond my wildest dreams. My love for my husband is kinda mushy and gushy and if I didn't know us and saw us on the side of a street, I'd be sick of how in love we are! haha

Anyhow, I wanted to say thank you also to all my readers! Thank you for following me on my little journey through love and life!

Happy Holidays,

Little miss Planner

after a million miles of

Trying something new...

We'll be leaving on Christmas day to trek all the way to other side of the country to see why the east are whiny bears about the winter season. Oh, may I add yesterday it was around 70 degrees out?! Okay okay, I'll be nice and not rub it in! ;)

I've decided I'll set up shop on my little computer phone (I feel like gadget) and blog while on vacation. I'll attempt to send photos and little things I see along the way. When I get back, I will finally get to the last of my wedding posts I've been sorta pushing off.

Hope everyone has a very berry and merry christmas!

You better watch out...

You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why...

Santa Dog is coming to town!

Saturday, December 22, 2007

Yesterday the CEO decided to give us the afternoon and I figured it was a perfect time to get my Hubby's last Christmas Present. I trekked down the Social Security office and made it official... I changed my last name. :)

I took the receipt and put it in a little box had it ready under the tree. Late in the evening I couldn't stand it and gave it to him! He knew I was going to do it but he was still surprised and happy!

I have to admit it was a great feeling. I thought I'd be sad about losing my last name, I think I'll always be the vigilante in my heart and was ready to take this step! I love my husband!

Thank you's...

Now that I have access to photos, I started to play around with them and realized I LOVED way too many... How can I just pick one for my thank you card?

Then I came up with this:

I sent it to the printer to see how it turned out... That, and get approval by the Hubby... :)


Blurb = booo!

So yesterday night, my husband brought in a thin package and it happened to be the photobook I made with Blurb of my Bachelorette party. Let me just say, the only thing good this company has got going for them is the sleeve of the book! It made it look professional! As for what was inside, my printer could have done a better job! The photos looked like they were Xeroxed.

So with the limited design software, the uploading issues, and the book itself, I'd give them a D.

If you are looking for a photobook company for your wedding photos, keep searching!

Next book will be bought from VioVio to test out!

In the order of who I think is the best so far as far as consumer photobook companies:

1. Picaboo
2. Kodak Gallery
3. Snapfish
4. Blurb


Late last night, my photographer, Toby, send over photos for me to see from the wedding! All I can say is that I am speechless how amazing they are! Here is just a few I stole from the site ;) to show you!

He gets a A+++! Thanks toby for such an amazing job! :)

My Book from Blurb is getting shipped on 12.17! Yiippiee!!!!

Watercooler chit-chat

I just ran into one of my colleagues whom I don't get a change to chat with that often. He was asking where I'm headed for vacation during the holidays:

Me: We're going to NYC and DC.
HIM: Oh, great, who's we?
Me: My husband and me.
HIM: WAIT, when did you get married?
Me: ~~blushing~~Oh, just a little over a month ago.

heheehehe... I loved it. I just love saying my husband! :)

My to do list...

is almost done. Every year I make a "to do" list. It's filled with new places I want to visit to physical events I want to do. This year I wanted to get married, and I did! I wanted to do two half marathons, CHECK! I wanted to go to a different continent, DONE!

At the moment I'm compiling my list. Year ago it was 21 items, but now I've shortened it to 10-15.

What are the things you want to do next year?

p.s. I'll post my To-do's later soon!

Wednesday, December 12, 2007


A few years ago, I came across a distinct looking photo what was shot by a Holga camera.

The Holga is an inexpensive, medium format 120 film toy camera, originating in China, that later came to be appreciated for its low-fidelity aesthetic.
The Holga's cheap construction and simple meniscus lens often yields pictures that display vignetting, blur, light leaks, and other distortions. Ironically, the camera's quality problems became a virtue among some photographers, with Holga photos winning awards and competitions in art and news photography..[3] WIKI

I was fascinated by the colors and it's simplistic design I ended up ordering one for myself. I used the camera no more than a handful of times and it's just sitting collecting dust.

Last night, in a random moment of enlightenment(or lack of sleep), I started to obsessively thing about my poor little camera and how it never was modified for regular film (Holga's come being able to shoot in 120). So today I found directions and will be busting it out to get it ready for our trip back east.

Lomography, what holga is a part of, is just a fascinating form of photography that I see more and more photogs going for. I love how they are making weddings and portraits into art pieces. It's funny to think that all this started from a toy camera!

Source of shots

I've just realized that it's all this photobook, waiting for proofs, seeing friend e-pics, that have made me because obsessed again with photography. Uggh...

Photo Books... Part 2

Part 1

I ended up making a 20page book of my Bachelorette party using Blurb. I have to admit, I was less than thrilled with their software to make the book. Then again I'm sorta snobby when it comes to this stuff. There were limited templates and the software just felt basic. I guess I shouldn't expect to be wowed by that but I was hoping. The price is cheap but then again, I'd rather pay more and get a higher quality book.

I just found a few other sites: and PhotoWorks.

In a forum I found the following little tidbits:
    • Photoworks is very "consumerish." Photoworks also redoes the color of all of your photos. So if you're a pro who is very careful of your colors, contrast, etc etc.. you don't want some one-size-fits-all curve adjustments being applied to your photos. I emailed photoworks and they said they cannot exempt any photographs from going through their "special" kodak processing.

    • I have tried about 15 different ones. The best ones I have found for my own shots are the coffee table books, soft cover from You can get a very nice 80 page book for $25. They print there logo and website on the back also. What I have done when I have made them for other people is to stick a label with my website over top of the one that they printed, then they will call me.

    • Also I have ordered books from Cornerstone. They have the Art Deco coffee table books. Real nice and the price is fairly reasonable although significantly higher than picaboo. But the quality is significantly better.

    • fyi - provides color profile details for you to use when submitting the images. They don't color adjust.

    • i ordered a hard cover photo book and a soft cover photo book from shutterfly and i must say that while i am happy with both, they are not (imho) professional level products. that is, i think i'd look for another vendor if i were making something for a business client.

    • VioVio and Asuka book seem to produce high-quality books at very reasonable prices. I believe viovio deserves to be seriously considered by anyone who appreciates a quality product. I do not believe anyone would be reluctant to show a book from viovio to a client.

I could go on and go but really, what's the point. I read countless comments and I think VioVio is next book I'll test out with our upcoming trip to Manhattan and D.C. I can't seem to find the link to Cornerstone because if it's better than Picaboo books I'm there. MyPublisher has had a lot of hit or miss comments so I think I might have to end up making an album to test that one out too. As far as Asuka Books, you need to be Pro to gain access to ordering books so they are out.

I should be getting the Blurb book back by Christmas. And will post more about this subject.

Taking a moment...

I wanted to take this moment to say congrats to one of my favorite people in the world on her engagement!

:) Welcome to the world of wedding planning!

Just had too!

You know when the holiday season comes around you aren't suppose to buy anything for yourself? Well, I did.

I was browsing looking for something for the house when I stumbled across this:
# COLOR DESIGN: Sensational Effects Lipcolor Smooth Hold (Full Size) in Ooh La La! and Sugared Maple
# LE ROUGE ABSOLU: Reshaping & Replenishing LipColour (Full Size) in Champagne and Amande Sucrée
# JUICY TUBES JELLY: Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss in Miracle
# JUICY TUBES SMOOTHIE: Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss in Simmer
# COLOR DESIGN: Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in Filigree, Makeover, Provence, The New Black, Guest List, Chic and Daylight
# BLUSH SUBTIL: Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush in Cedar Rose and Rose Fresque
# LE CRAYON KHÔL: Eye Pencil in Black Coffee
# DÉFINICILS: High Definition Mascara (Full Size) in Black
# BI-FACIL: Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover (Full Size)
# RÉNERGIE: Double Performance Treatment Anti-Wrinkle Firming
# Cosmetic Case
# 3-Piece Brush Set
# Lancôme Signature Train Case
All for just 48.50$

It wasn't like I went looking for makeup or anything. It really was just on the side of the screen. It found me!!! (and that's the story that I'm sticking to!) I justified this purchase because I needed a new powder and if I was going to buy it, I might as well buy it now so I can get a train case (that I needed) and all the other free (FULL SIZE) goodies! Then more rationalization set in, I also needed to get "random household item" and I order now, it's FREE SHIPPING so I should just order it now... and I did.

I'm patiently waiting (and anxiously jumping for joy in my head) for my little items!

Darn internet making it easy to find things to buy!!!


I find myself uncovering leftover OOT bags, ribbon, STD's that I forgot to put away, and lots of other little random things. Now the question is what do I do with them? I'm putting away a little "time capsule" of our wedding day. Okay, you got me, it's just a Rubbermaid bin that will end up in the garage. :) But what do you do when you have more than you need left over? Just dump it?

Also... I have my bouquet still. I really wanted to give it to Matt's Grandma who couldn't make it but that never happened. It ended up outside where it dried out and now it's sitting on one of our wine cabinets. Do I keep it? Do I chuck it? I've decided to see if people will really vote... so I will test out the little poll system!

Please vote. What would you do?

VENDOR REVIEWS!!! ...the travel agent

I hate writing less than admirable reviews about people but sometimes you gotta help out the fellow bride or just anyone in general. We're going to work backwards for this one and start with the grade: "C" for Fiji Travel.

I worked with one of the agents at the company to book our honeymoon and while we had a great time, there was one reason they received such a low score, their customer service. Before booking I repeatedly told them EXACTLY what time we needed to fly out. After they agreed, we sent out our deposit and all was good. One month later I got a weird thought and wondered if they could send us the itinerary. When I opened it up, they booked us to fly out the NIGHT of the wedding, not the day I requested (the day after). At one point, I was yelling in the phone (if you can tell, I really am not that pushy) telling him HE was the one that made the mistake. For 45 minutes, I wasn't budging and was pushing the point he screwed up. I even had the emails to prove it. He finally changed the flights to the correct date.

If it wasn't for this one event, they would have received a better grade. The trip they booked primarily consisted of airfare, one hotel (that I picked out and found prices for), and transport to/from airport at destination. I did the rest of the work picking our our excursions. Would I ever recommend them to anyone? No. I'm not afraid that they would make the mistake to them, I'm afraid they would treat them as poorly as they did to fix it.

Decorating for an evening outdoor wedding!

Outdoor receptions can be soo magical! With the little touches of light here and there, it just makes the place sparkle and feel soo romantic!

When we looked at a venue for our reception, we saw this estate where the dancefloor would be nestled under two huge oak trees! If we had it there, I would have loved to hang something from them. Something like this:

Tools and Materials
Drill with 1/8-inch drill bit

18- to 36-inch lengths of 3/4-by-1/4-inch wooden lattice strips

50- and 100-bulb strands of green wire mini lights (use 50-bulb strands for short icicles, 100-bulb strands for long ones)

Black all-weather electrical tape

Icicles How-To
1. Drill 1/8-inch hole at top of wooden lattice strip.

2. Tightly wrap lights around strip, starting a few inches from prong end and being careful not to let bulbs touch. Tape to secure at top and bottom of strip.

3. Loop monofilament through hole to hang.

Oh sweet goodness!

My fascination continues! Look at all these super cute cupcakes! I LOVE the snowman even though I can't quite figure out how to eat it without beheading him first?!

These would be amazing for a shower as a favor (in a cute chinese food box all decorated up!)!!!!

Maybe I'll make some of the snowmen for my husband's office! :)

That Martha is just soo crafty!

Little things I Learned along the way...

When planning my wedding, I felt soo lost at times. You get into a territory that is a world of its own. You don't know what is worth the stress and what isn't. You learn what you should skimp on and what you shouldn't. Sometimes you get hung up on minor details you forget that NO ONE will notice what color the ink is on a menu or that you didn't drink from personalized flutes (or that you didn't drink from them at all --like us).

**The lists below are showing my own personal opinion.

Venue -- When looking at locations, think about the little things like, if you want to dance where will that go? How about a bar? How many tables? Is there special lighting in the room (dimming or areas that spotlight)? What do the walls look like? Also, what is in the surrounding area outside? What is the food like? Do they have the options for serving you prefer? How much time do you REALLY have at the site?

I think you should feel comfortable with what the price tag is with what you like. Spend what you need!

-- These photos are going to last you a lifetime. Not only are they yours, they are your kids, grand kids, parents photos of your wedding! When you start researching, start making a list of what style you like best. Then start narrowing it down by that. Also ask for details about who owns the copyrights of the photos, do you get proofs? How many? What about albums?

It isn't soo much of a splurge item... but it is definitely a necessity.

Videographer -- Even if you hate yourself on video, think about how your kids and grand kids would love it! Even if you don't hire anyone, at least, get someone to tape it.

I didn't want it at first but I remember one of my favorite things growing up was watching my parents video of their wedding. And when I found a videographer who shoots the style like my parents video, it was fate! Now our children will be able to watch their parents get hitched...again and again and again! I definitely wasn't cheap on this part for me!

Flowers -- Whatever you do, make sure you ask to see a mock up of the centerpiece before the wedding...even if you have to pay! Outline EXACTLY what you want and make sure to get multiple quotes. Find ideas of the style you like and take them with you.

I was timid with our florist and my flowers suffered. I'm a perfectionist and this is my one regret, not speaking up. Spend the cash to get what you want. If you want them professionally done, great, if not, research on what type of arrangements you want and price it out. Anything is possible! Realize that your centerpieces are going to be the MAIN thing your guests will be noticing during the reception!

Stationary -- Invitations, STDs, programs, menus, etc etc etc. Most importantly invitations. Realize that by making your own you might not be saving THAT much money. The programs and the rest, if you have the time to make them, great, if not, who cares! No one will be mad if you don't make them!

From start to finish, all my stationary supplies cost around $$$$. It would have been less expensive for me to just order than and save me the heartache and time!

Favors -- What is someone going to do with that thing after your wedding? This should always be your number one question.

We wanted to complement our mood with our favors: Mumm's Sparkling Wine in velvet bags, little mini velvet bags with chocolate coins, and a candy buffet. We spend a GOOD chunk on this and frankly I thought it was worth it for me. It brought in both styles I wanted to convey.

Attire -- Find the style of dress you like! And if you are saving money, there ARE alternatives to David's Bridal! Check out local boutiques and even higher end stores for their sample sales. And when you shop, only try on dresses in your price range. Why hurt yourself if you fall in love with a $5k dress when you only have $1000 to spend. Don't settle either. Find the dress that you LOVE!

I found the dress I loved in the price range. It gave me the excuse to splurge on the shoes!

..........I know there is a ton more to talk about these are always the biggest things! When you first set out, before making a budget, talk to a few others who just got married. Learn what the basic costs of things are. THEN set your budget! Also budget for MISC. You never know what may come up!

In the near future, I will be posting my budget and how it came out but it will be after I finish up posting about everything else!

New Traditions

Last night, the hubby and I decided to make a gingerbread house. Okay, not really make one, we bought a premade one and just put it back together. We quickly found out WE ARE NOT master gingerbread house decorators! We did have a good time and will make this a tradition!

I added the border to hide our mistakes! While we aren't the best at it, it was fun! I think all those Food Network Challenges got me thinking I could soo do that... well, from this little experiment, I know that isn't the case!

What fun holiday traditions do you have or think you'll start with your S.O.?

Trash? I think not!

My husband bribed me with P!nkberry tonight if I went through all the magazines in the bin and threw the old ones away. I did get rid of a lot of them but I found myself holding onto my bridal magazines...wait, it's more like my Better Homes and Garden and Martha Stewart Wedding Magazines. I just can't seem to toss them since they have SUCH GREAT IDEAS on party planning. These are the moments I wish I could have glamorous affairs at least once a year. At the moment, I'll have to just make due with dinner parties and my table as my stage!

Anyone else feel like this towards a magazine?

If only I'd known...

...about the Anne Taylor Celebrations line for bridesmaids, I sooo would have sent my girls there to pick the right dress!


All these dresses are on sale for under 80$. I love their new line too!

Oh girls looked beautiful anyway! :)

19 days til Christmas?

While most people are just starting their holiday shopping, we finished ours, put up our (real) tree, decorated the house with lights (in 90 degree weather...don't hate me!), and even bought all the goods for my "DAY 'O BAKING" that happens a week before Christmas.

Talk about being on top of it all! I even am 75% done with my cards to send out for card swap I joined over at Bklyn Bride. I think this weekend we are going to wrap up presents so we can just be done and enjoy the rest of the holiday season!

I love the holidays and I'm really excited about this one since it's our first year married and in our new house. What's your favorite part of the holidays?

Source of ornament

Swing... miss....

That was me about 1/4 of the time last night when my Hubby took me to the driving range to break in my golf clubs! Okay, I didn't break them all in, just my 9 iron. But it being my first time, I hit the majority of the balls correctly and got air on a ton of them! I must be a natural! :P

Then after we got home, I quickly got the chicken ready and put it in the oven and went for a run with the fur ball. I was jogged, ran, sprinted, and walked...while even throwing in some luges in there for two blocks! I'm not too sore today but I think after tonight (going to Bikram Yoga) I think I'll be done for. I also want to get another run in before tomorrow because of the rain.

I think I'm going through a need something new to exercise phase. I think next up will be some form of boot camp. We'll see if I last at that!

Photo Books... Part 1

Since we got engaged, I've used every excuse to order a photo book from different makers testing out the quality before I make a decision to go with one for my actual wedding photo books for our parents (and ourselves).

I started with my bridal shower through Picaboo and because it was my first purchase, I was able to receive a free book. The quality of the book was amazing. From the binding to the colors of the photos! My only con was the paper of the book wasn't as thick as I wanted.

Next I ordered my husband a book as a present from Kodak Gallery. It was filled with photos from all the trips and events we went on. The binding and the paper were good. The cover was great but the colors of the photos were eh.

Thirdly, after two of my BMs sent me photos of the wedding, I created a book through snapfish. The book was just okay. Nothing to brag about. The binding was decent but again, the colors were not to my liking. Also the paper wasn't very thick.

Then I found an a good article from Slate: Which Photo Web site creates the best photo album?. While it lists five or six sites, it doesn't evaluate the newer websites. (article written in 2006) I also found a great forum debating pros and cons of ALL the sites out there and a great article from New York Post. Lastly, here is a message board feed from Weddingbee debating all this.

I think I might make a little photo book of my Bacholerette Weekend through Blurb to test it out. We'll see how that goes! :)

Finishing things up...

Over a month ago I got married and I'm still dragging my feet about all things wedding-ish! I have vendor reviews to do (reception site, food, photographer, videographer, and florist) and just waiting for my proofs from the wedding to talk about them! I have one last DIY project: my thank you cards but I sorta have to wait to send them out since I need a photo from the wedding to go with them.

With these last little things, while it's a little sad to finally wrap up everything, I'm happy to share and finally be done! It's been a long journey and I'm finally seeing the end of it all!

Beautiful treats!

While I was trekking around the Internet, I found this super-cute site called Never Bashful with Butter! (Don't you just LOVE that name?!) She wrote a great blog article about making these amazing cookies! Now, I HAVE to make some on my dessert making extravaganza!

These would be great for winter weddings as favors or even holiday parties! YUM YUM!

20$ off!!!!

My favorite store EXPRESS just sent me a 20$ off coupon when you spend 60$ or more. And if you only spend 20$, you get 10$ off!

Here's the link for the coupon!

It starts tomorrow and ends December 11. Now Go SHOP!

Travel deals

When booking our honeymoon, I made sure we did our research! I wanted the best we could afford and the joy of the Internet, you can easily find those deals! We booked our honeymoon six months before our date but with soo many great sites out there looking for a last minute or 1 month to go deal isn't that difficult.

I've grown to love Travelzoo Weekly Top 20. Not only have I found amazing prices but it's also opened up a world of possibilities of places I now want to go to! There is also Sherman's Travel Top 25. Both sites send out emails and post the new deals every Wednesday!

Here's my favorite day for this week:

$269 -- Bahamas All-Inclusive Wyndham Getaway w/Air
Freeport, Bahamas

My ultra geek wants to fight!

I woke up this morning like any other day (running late as usual), I attempted to grab a cup of coffee but alas, all the travel mugs were dirty. I think it was the cosmic universe saying to either:

  • A. Hire a maid

  • B. Buy more travel mugs

  • C. Do the dishes

While I like A and B the most, I think my wallet prefers C and well, wallets usually win battles 98.3521% of the time! Anywho, after I realized such the travesty that I would have to wait 20 minutes till I get to work to drink my first cup of coffee I passed a calendar and noticed it was December 5. OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!

It's International Day of the Ninja!!

Of all the things to notice and get excited about. It isn't like it's September 19 (Talk Like a Pirate Day)! Still, I smiled and hopped into my car and thought of all things ninja. Now, if you are intriqued about ninjas, head on over to Ask a Ninja. I think all women are ninjas at heart, we just don't know it!

Just another example of how geeky I can be sometimes! :P

Oh pretty cupcakes!

I have no clue how I stumbled onto this but by gollie... this is amazing!

I'm going to have to have dinner party to make these! Maybe in the springtime!

These would be great for a garden wedding or even a bridal shower!

I do love cupcakes!!!! And what do I love more, pretty and creative looking cupcakes!!!!

My very own...

My husband loves to play golf. When we moved into our new home, one of the main draws was the country club in it. He really wanted me to learn to play so as one of my wedding presents he gave me, he searched high and low for a female left-handed set of golf clubs. Now, if you ever looked, you'll know they NEVER have them in stock and take FOREVER to get.

So after a month into our marriage, my set (that he ordered a month before the wedding) finally arrived! They are sooo shiny and pretty! Now I just have to figure out how to play! I'm dragging him to the driving range tonight to break them in!

Have you ever picked up a sport from your S.O.?

Website upgrades...

We (as in I) are (am) in the process of updating/upgrading the website. I'll be adding a few other little neat things but it'll take some time...

so bear with me and thank you for visiting my little corner of the super highway!

1. I do wall push ups everywhere I go... When I'm waiting in line and next to a counter, I throw out a few push ups. I rationalize it that by doing this, I'm making up for the fact I "forgot" to get up in the morning to go run.
2. So that song I humm underneath my breath that I think no one hears?... well, it's from Nightmare before Christmas, "This is Halloween." I hum it ALL YEAR LONG!

5. Every Monday I get super excited for the new lists of postcards on PopSecret! I always want to send in a secret but can never think of anything juicy!
6. I HATED Martha Stewart growing up! Now, I have my very own subscription!
7. Same goes for cooking shows. To the point I'd leave the room when my Mom flipped to them. Now, my husband is the one that leaves the room and I'm flipping to the food network! My favorite? The Barefoot Contessa!

I'm suppose to tag people now? ...I'll update with names!
