When is it going to start?

Still waiting for confirmation that we're in the contest but nothing yet. Heard from another couple in it that voting starts December 11. We want to start campaigning but pointless to send people to the website when its not updated....

Anyway, we're excited and I made a simple flyer:

What Your Face Says

At first glance, people see you as warm and well-balanced.

Overall, your true self is moody and dynamic.

With friends, you seem logical, detached, and a bit manipulative.

In love, you seem mysterious and interesting.

In stressful situations, you seem selfish and moody.

Mississauga's Perfect Couple Contest

Last month, I submitted Shaun's and my application for a contest that the Mississauga News is holding. The prize: A honeymoon vacation! Now, we already booked something but it can be cancelled and we can save thousands of dollars. Also, it would be just cool to win a big contest like this. Basically the premise is that they randomly select you to be one of 24 finalist couples who vie for the honeymoon. The winner is determined by the most votes. These electronic votes can be from anyone and not just Mississaugians. I will need everyone's help!

We found out the day before that we're selected to be one of the 24!!! I will post the details for voting shortly. Basically, we have to get votes in December and the end date is January 11 for voting. We find out the winners on January 14 at the Mississauga Bridal Show.

Our info and pics aren't up yet but to see last year's contest, go to

Asian Glow/ Blush

So those who know me know that I turn beet read after one - two drinks (depending on the libation). Now, after years of drinking in university, I'm not a lush but definitely look like one. With certain types of alcohol, I actually break out into a rash which is super unattractive.

After reading Weddingbee the other day about remedies for this problem (it's actually a genetic defect as we're missing an enzyme to break down the alcohol). After some googling, I found out there are H2 blockers that minimize the effects of the redness (some people actually turn purple!). And the most commonly available one marketed for other purposes:
I tried it Saturday and while I only had two drinks, I didn't turn as red as usual. Hallelujah! I'm glad to find this out before the wedding as I'm planning on partaking in the open bar.

I've been neglectful...

It's really too easy not to post. Of course, the usual excuses, too busy with work and life...

I'm currently working on our wedding guestbook which will be a photobook that our guests will sign (like a yearbook). I was originally looking at My Publisher but because of this great deal (FREE!), I'm going with Shutterfly:

Each TripAdvisor visitor who submits a total of 10 photographs that are ultimately posted to the TripAdvisor site between October 23rd, 2006 and November 20th, 2006 will receive a coupon redeemable for $20 worth of free prints from Each customer who posts 25 photos during the promotion period will receive a coupon redeemable for a free 20 page Shutterfly® photo book. Here are the details:
It's coming along and hopefully we'll get the order in this weekend.

Engagement photos

While Shaun was away last week in Vegas (yes, I'm jealous), I picked up our disk of high res images as well as our 11x14 enlargement. They all look great! This is the picture we chose for our enlargement:
