Avery's engaged!

Normally on a Sunday night, I'm not only in bed, but fast asleep by 10pm. Except this Sunday. I didn't get home til later, so I was still awake in my bed when Avery came home (she's a night owl, that one). A few minutes after she came home, the roomies came traipsing up the stairs to my room, slowly opened the door, and said softly, "Julie?" I responded, so Avery put her hand through the door first to show me her new sparkler! My reaction: "HOLY CRAP!" I knew they'd get engaged, but I didn't think it would happen until Christmasish. They're planning a June 2008 wedding, so that gives Ave plenty of time to plan!!

You can read the story on Avery's blog.

Congratulations Zak and Avery!

Hi Julie, I'm not sure if I've ever posted on your blog, but I do stop by to read it once in a while :) Anyway, I have a question, totally not related to your post, what is your career? I remember reading some posts about it and I'm thinking it is a speech pathologist? I'll be a teacher in December, but always have in the back of my mind things I might also want to pursue one day. Perhaps you could do a small post on what it is you had to complete in order to get where you are, what jobs you can get and what those jobs entail. If you dont want to make a post on account of me :) you can email me or post a comment back to me on my blog. Thanks in advance...I've been meaning to ask for a while now :)
Oh and congratulations to Avery!

Hi Tracy,
I surely will post about the life and times of moi (and my career choice). Give me a couple o' days here :)

Did you get to my blog through my ever faithful blogger friend Angella?!

Tracy said...

Yes, I think I did find you through Angella. I have a few favourite reads off of her list, and you're one of them! I keep trying to get my friends to start blogs...but they haven't...yet!
Look forward to the post about your career choice :)
