Metro Weddings: Most Outstanding Weddings in 2008

Some more wedding related news...our wedding was featured at Metro Wedding's Most Stunning Weddings of the Year (Best of 2008). It was truly an honor. The magazine wanted to focus more on the details and the wedding in general than the preparations so I provided more photos on details, decor, etc. It was nice and different. Oh...and my supplier list is a like a mile long. I thought they were going to sift through and decide what would be relevant to the readers and space. I didn't know that they would have it all in there. :P
Check out the article below.
(BIRTHDAY SHOUTOUT to N-G who's featured on the 4th page, my wonderful bridesmaid!)
There were some typos/mistakes:
1.) exchanging my mom's shoe supplier with mine. I love my shoes and it's by Rene Caovilla.
2.) some of the quotes were either "Joy" and "Cheryl"...both the same!
3.) fyi - the photoshop/edit of the cover photo was odd...I don't remember it being that way. Oh well...

On the home front news, I was able to find our couch (a really striking one) for our living room and I was able to finally get my "dream coffee table", the Naguchi coffee table in black. :) I wish the purchase of our couch was as easy and seamless (in every way) as the coffee table. The couch took forever to arrive compared to an hour for our table upon purchase. I guess it helps a lot if you are near the latter's shop warehouse. :P I'm so loving the living room now...even if there's still tons to go, I'm looking forward to having people over!

With the stress of work, scrapping and keeping sane, I've mustered up the energy and time to start playing golf more regularly again. I need to get some exercise in my regiment since I sit in front a computer most of the time. Slowly...once a week first before I get my feel and then maybe twice a week. I hope to be able to keep this up till maybe summer. I normally play less during the really hot months. So far, decently getting back to the groove. :)

I'd like to promote a fellow blogger friend's site: Mabuhay Project
Crop Dreams aids to promote Filipino culture and talent through digital scrapbooking!
They got a lovely design team this 2008! Keep scrappin'...
