I'll Miss you Ness!!

I woke up this morning at 4:30pm to see my sister Vanessa off to Toronto. I was kind of not hoping that this day would come, because I'm going to miss her. Especially since she is my maid of honor and she needs to help me with all the wedding stuff. We will work around it, I guess. But at the airport you could tell in her face that she was excited for everything that is going to happen in the next little while. I know she's a little sad to go but she did keep telling all of us, that she will be back soon. Which is true!! I'm so excited for her and can't wait to hear the stories that she will have.

My Weekend

Let's see, my weekend....Saturday I got together with my friend Jen to make some Christmas cards and to go and check out Michaels and the scrapbook store, that's always fun. We stayed up late until about 12:30pm, making some Christmas cards and just chatting away!! It was fun, and the time just flew by.

Sunday, we had a dinner for Vanessa 'cause she leaves for Toronto on Tuesday. So we had a family dinner, Jared was at work unfortunately. My mom made Indian food. It was SO good. So much better than when I made it. We laughed and talked.

Then we gave her some presents, since it looks like she won't be here for Christmas, totally sucks. But her boyfrend is going out to Toronto to be with her so, at least she won't be alone, she gets 5 days off from training for the holidays. And it's just too much trouble for her to come back home. Easier if her boyfriend goes out there. I'm so happy for her that she's going, but I'm going to miss her tons!!

Biology Class

Sunday at the mall with my sis, I ran into my old best friend from high school and elementary school. I haven't seen her in so long. It was so nice to see her. She lives in Chilliwack about an hour and a bit from here, and she was in town visiting her parents. She's a high school French teacher. We chatted for a bit, she seems good and happy. When I got home I couldn't help but think about the "old" days and how much fun we used to have.

Graduating year from high school, we had Biology class together. Most of that time was spent chatting about boys and other important things. Sciences have never been my strongest subject. Half the time was also spent me asking her a tons of questions. Thank God I ended up passing the class. We had this friend, who sat with us at the same table and he was an amazing artist. He was really into drawing comics. So, I dug up the old comic and it just makes me laugh. I love it. I can still see us together, I think I actually might email it to her and see what she says.

I need Blogger For Dummies

I need it!! I am having such hard time trying to post a picture for my profile. I have been spending too much time trying to figure it out. It's driving me crazy!!!! I read the instructions on the Blogger Help, and followed them and they say no, it exceeds the number of characters or it says that it's invalid. UGH!! They make it sound so easy to do, but no! April even tried to help and i tried to follow her instructions but no such luck. I guess I'll just have to keep trying.

But other than that, my weekend was good. Delivered a bunch of engagement invitations. My pile of invitations was definetly smaller than Jared's. Only have two left to deliver. Jared just knows way too many people. I went to the scrap store, got a whole bunch of goodies for the circle journal, my color is Aqua. So excited to start. I saw Jared Saturday night, just watched football, me keeping an eye out for the marching band. Sunday, I went to the mall with my baby sister. I was so good, did not spend any money. My sister did that instead. She bought a bunch of new clothes, good for her. She's so hard to get to spend some money. Then we went to Steveston for coffee and a bagel. Later that night Jared and I went for coffee with some friends to Starbucks. Fun, just did a whole bunch of chatting and some wedding talk. Jared did finally talk to the caterer today, I've been bugging him for the past three weeks to call. Finally got somewhere.

Tonight, I think I'm going to do some work on my cj, so excited and watch some tv. Stil need to watch Desperate Housewives,I taped it. And CSI Miami is on tonight!!YAY!! Happy Monday everyone!!

Congrats to Vanessa!!!

I am so proud of my sister. After so much determination, perserverance and tons of practicing French with her, she finally got her flight attendant job. YAY for her!! She will be working for Air Canada Jazz. She leaves for Toronto on the 29th of this month. Her training is six weeks, and then she's on probation for 6 months. And she will be gone for that time too. SO it kind of sucks because it looks like she will miss Christmas and my engagement party. As long as she is here for the wedding, she's my maid of honour. I am so happy for her but I know I will miss her tons.

Jared's Birthday Celebration

I know it's wednesday, and we're all ready for the weekend that's coming up but I still wanted to post a little bit about Jared's 28th bday. First off it totally did not go as planned. My whole surprise that I had planned, to make him dinner and have a very romantic night. Nope didn't go. Let's just say that I was very upset, all because I was really excited about cooking him dinner. And I was going to cook chicken curry, and I don't cook. That's why it was such a big deal. And I made him a plate full of cupcakes and everything too. Oh well! So, we ended up having dinner with his family on Saturday night, which was fine. Then we, me, Jared, his brother Josh and his girlfriend Tanya went to O'Hares pub for some birthday drinks. Which was fun. Jared then phoned a whole bunch of his friends to come and join us. Needless to say all his friends bought a whole bunch of drinks and shooters so Jared was feeling pretty good after. Jared gets very moody when he's had too much to drink and he wants to pick fights with everybody. Not a-lot of fun!! So i got to take care of him, lucky me!! He insisted that he wanted to go to another pub, but I told him no that he was going home to go to bed. And everyone else was going home too.He was a bit difficult but by 10:40pm Jared was passed out snoring. I was tired too. We're such old farts!! Jared did tell me that it was the BEST birthday he's ever had. So that did make me feel a little bit better, but still. So, we ended up cooking Indian food on Monday night, actually Jared did most of the work. That's okay, I just want Jared happy that's all that matters to me.

Busy, Busy, Busy

I had a good weekend, got to see tons of Jared which is always good. Saturday was College football so, of course it was spent watching Notre Dame. I always watch just so I could listen to the marching band. If there was marching band at my high school I would've SO joined. But we don't have that here in Canada. I guess I can only dream. hahaha!! We watched the game on the couch all cuddled up under the blanket, it was nice. And we actually did watch the whole game!!! Jared's been talking about going to Indiana, right? To watch a game, and I would so go with him. Of course to go and watch the marching band, take tons of pics and check out some scrapbook stores. Maybe next year for his b-day. Might have to start planning soon!!

Sunday was spent looking for some stamps to make our engagement party invitations. Which I did find, and hanging out with my youngest sister in Steveston. One of our fave places to go. We had coffee and dessert. I had my fave cheesecake; lemon chocolate. It was so yummy!! I wonder if would taste good as a wedding cake? Later, that night Jared and I went out to dinner with his family to Spaghetti Factory. To celebrate Jared's brothers b-day!! So I got to see all of my future in laws, which is good, haven't seen them all in awhile. Jared is so lucky too that he still has all 4 of his grandparents. I always so envious, he has always said that they are my grandparents too, but now it's official. Jared was so tired, he was pretty much falling asleep at the table. He'd only had 4 hours of sleep because he slept on the couch. His brother, sister and him went out Saturday night to celebrate his brothers b-day, and because his sister slept over at his house, he gave her his bed and he slept on the couch, not too comfortable. Poor him!!

Today Jared spent the afternoon stamping, while I was at work. He was helping with the engagement party invites, he looked so cute, I'll post pics later. I will definelty scrap those pics for our engagemnt album. He's at soccer tonight so I get to continue with the invites, and tonight is CSI:Miami, I'm excited. Jared has gotten me hook.
