Happy Anniversary!

 

The weather in Toronto last night was beautiful, and your food looks delicious (though I'm craving cake now, lol). Looks like it was a great night :)

Thanks!  :) @@krystalball and @veryvalentine 

 

It was a great night to walk around ...we needed it after our meal lol! That cake was to die for - soooo good! It was a mocha ice cream cake with cookie crumble crust and chocolate, caramel and almonds drizzled over top! I could go for another piece right now. haha.

Oooh, that sounds so good! I have a birthday coming up in a few months - would you mind sharing where you went for dinner?

 

If I get impatient I might just propose a fancy dinner date for no reason so I can have some awesome cake!

@@krystalball actually it wasn't anywhere too fancy - we just went to the Keg but we went to the Keg Mansion (so pretty in there). The cake (if you go) is called the Billy Miner's pie. 

 

Some of our other favourite places to go are:

 

Black Hoof (a little more adventurous - they have some really interesting items on their menu. It's a smaller place and they don't take reservations but great food and fun atmosphere with great cocktails.)

 

Joey's (it's a chain but we always love anything we order there and I've had some pretty great desserts there too!)

 

If you like Thai food - Pai, Sukho Thai & Khao san road are all amazing and owned by the same couple. 

 

I could go on and on... can you tell I'm getting hungry sitting at my desk at work - haha!

@@snswedding2016 Happy 4 year anniversary! I love the billy miner pie! It's our tradition to go to the keg on our anniversary. Our anniversary coincides with the annual Dine Out festival here in Vancouver and a 3 course meal at the Keg is $40. So good and such a great deal

We're still trying to figure out what to get our groomsmen as we have a real mix of guys with varying tastes. I did find something small to include in their gifts this weekend though. They are collapsable stainless steel shot glasses from Amazon. Super cute, fun and for $3.95 each (free shipping)…how can you go wrong?  :)

One of the items we're debating are these vintage map cufflinks. I contacted the etsy seller and she said she could make them with maps of playa del carmen. I think they would be really cute but Sean doesn't think most of the guys will use them…which he may have a point, but I still think they look cute! lol He's thinking about it and may come around on the idea.

Wooow I can't believe how far you've gotten into the planning process!!!! I should feel ashamed of myself. My wedding should be in August 2016 and I've been researching since summer of last year. I am still a bit undecided about resorts but the Sky wedding at Azul Fives is very appealing to me. The costs add up so quickly there. I am going to get some inspiration from you since you have some awesome ideas. Thank you sooo much for sharing!!!! Please keep posting updates so you can assist flip flopping brides like myself  :wacko:

@ Thanks but please don't feel ashamed. All of our planning journeys are unique. I know yours will come together beautifully! :)  I kinda started planning like crazy right out of the gate but it has definitely slowed down a bit now. My busy time at work is in the summer-fall and then we get married next winter! I'm trying to get as much done now as I can. I will definitely keep you posted with all the planning updates! This forum is such a great resource and I love how everyone comes together to help each other out. I don't know where I would be if I hadn't found this site.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
