Update Slacking

So with the move and trying to finalize little details here and there I have been a slacker on the update department. At least I can recognize this.

Anyway, I'm still waiting for the airfare prices to be released for November. Hopefully should be happening by this week. I suggest everyone get their flights asap because with fuel prices increasing I can only imagine it will only get more expensive with time. Gil and I will be out there from 11/8/11 - 11/14/11. These are also the dates that we'll have the villa (because it's tons cheaper to just rent for a full week than to rent day by day) Everyone can feel free to join us for as long or as little as you'd like.

I'd also like it if everyone coordinated with me on the dates/times they want to reserve flights for, just so I can make sure that my dad can accommodate pick up from the airport and stuff. I don't want to give him too much of an extra headache.

In the meantime please enjoy pictures of the villa we'll be staying in (which by the way is a 2 minute drive from where the wedding will be held) at

It is decided!!!!

After lots of back and forth the last few days between myself, Anita (the wedding planner), and some Gil, the wedding/reception location has been chosen. The ceremony will take place on Friday November 11th at 5pm on the beach at the Rincon of the Seas - Grand Caribbean Hotel. The reception will be in the Hotel itself.

I can barely put into words how excited and relieved I feel right now. It's all about finalizing the details once the contract is signed later today.

I haven't forgotten about finding stuff for you guys to do and see while you're there. I am actually putting a map together with the locations of everything and what kind of place it is ranging from coffee shops, to restaurants, bars, surf shops etc. Give me a little more time.

I'm tryin' not to become the 1st groomzilla!

So Sechel tells me she found a wedding planner who is handling all the necessities in PR and is coming up with quotes. So far we have the "easy on the wallet quote" and the "It's pricey but worth it quote". She tells me that the cheap one involves the ceremony and get together to be at a resturaunt on the beach. Looking at pix, it seems way too open and invasive to those not to there for us. Tourists and locals just running through our event with no remorse, which they should have none!

As soon as she got a few words in showing me pictures, I felt a little off put and shut it down completely. I'm not getting married and having a reception at no damn Sammy's Fish Box >: (
The second pricey spot looked awesome and had privacy for the wedding as well as reception for guest. I guess privacy demands payment. I'm ok with that for now. I figure, in my own opinion, if we're gonna do this, might as well do it right and memorable.
