This might be THE most perfect Monday post — my Sunshine Kitchen experience (to shoo away Monday blues)! I will start backwards by sharing this amazingly delicious ice cream for dessert — Key Lime Pie Ice Cream. I didn’t know what flavor it was so when it was served I thought “just another vanilla ice cream” given that it’s white… BUT to my surprise, it’s lime PLUS the texture of the crushed crackers (I suppose) blended perfectly well with the soft but not-easy-to-melt ice cream. It’s such a good play on the texture and taste. Truly the most “pasabog” surprise for me at Sunshine Kitchen.

I “roam” around while waiting for our festivity to start and here is how this foodie place looks like.

They have a sleek bar. And loads of beers to choose from. Too bad I missed to take up-close photo of the beers but we might see them again in person. Date soon, my B?

Now let the foodie virtual tour begin. We started with three appetizers and here are two that stuck with me, especially this one. It’s deliciously paired with their freshly baked bread rolls. AND this BREAD ROLLS – ugh! Seriously delicious!

This is another reason I need to go back. It stayed perfectly crunchy even if it was just sitting on the table, waiting its turn to be devoured. I’m such a carnivore! No wonder why I’m healthy-chubby-looking.

Hooray Thursday: Wedding Wow

Post Content

Wedding_Ortiz-Macht_52

It’s Hooray Thursday once again! Today I am overwhelmed with the thought that it is only 118 days before OUR wedding. I must admit that we have been lax in our planning and preparations and one day, it just dawned on us, that it’s really time to move our b*tt and get kicking! *laughs* To keep my sanity, I am sharing to you some of our wedding tasks that we have accomplished, as I go through the status on our checklist.

photo(9) Wedding Ring. We have finally booked the jeweler whose got the design that my B fell in love with. I am happy that he is getting the ring he wanted. Brides-to-be, let us not forget that weddings are not only for us bride, but is also for our grooms, so include him in the planning and give into the details that he wants too. *wink*

photo(11)Wedding Cake. I couldn’t be happier to have found the cake maker who makes the prettiest, daintiest and most whimsical cake I have ever seen! Not only the design perfectly suits my taste, the inner “design” and actual flavor that I want will be done! Amen to that!

photo(10)Wedding Gown. The couturier is one of the earliest suppliers we have booked. As of this month though, we are still in the process of perfect-ing the actual gown to suit the design I have in mind. Crossing fingers that all goes well on our next fitting this coming August.

Being a hands-on bride-to-be, I am learning a lot of tips and tricks in planning and preparing for my own wedding. We are going to hire a coordinator but only for the actual day. With that said, it is very important that I understand clearly what I wanted to achieve for the wedding in order to communicate it to the suitable suppliers. It’s also important that you clarify and review the “contract” or “terms of agreement” for you to have a smooth transaction up until after the wedding.

It has been a whirlwind few months behind us, but I am excited that we agreed to accomplish at least one task per night. Hooray for more accomplished tasks! Hooray for the wedding details we are about to tackle!

For all the other brides-to-be AND grooms-to-be, happy prepping! *smiles*

Hooray Thursday: High Hopes

What better way for me to greet July, the start of the 2nd half of 2013, than to bring back one of my favorite curated posts — Hooray Thursday! Today’s inspiration is from the things around me, current happenings, or recent experiences that are giving me high hopes for the things that are yet to come. It’s also a good way to keep you updated on what’s happening over here at The Dollhouse.

Sadly we were faced with “work” the minute we arrived back home and so we are looking forward with high hopes for the weekend ahead to catch up on fun stuff — like browsing and reminiscing about our trip through our photos. }
