Following are a few pictures that we have on one camera (of many)- just to give you an idea of the last 2 days (wedding-wise).
Wednesday: The plan was to make my own wedding cake. I found a super cute little tier thing to use and everything. The plan failed for NO APPARENT REASON. The cakes looked like small volcanoes. ALL THREE OF THEM. And they were quite flat. Cue: phone call to Aunt Cheryl! This doll is going to make the cake(s) TODAY.
And the rest of the day was a blur. (A fun blur of course).
On Wednesday night, Carlynne (twin sis), Dan (sis's boyfriend), Avery (old roomie) and THE GROOMY arrived from Edmonton. They actually arrived at 12:30am, so I guess that was early Thursday morning, and I was sleeping. Hee hee.
But yesterday was FULL and FUN! Everyone worked all day: mowing lawns, baking, cooking, cleaning, getting pedicures (this was the roughest job of all;), scrambling to do some wedding stuff....
Then more friends and relatives arrived!
Our deck was double booked that night by Shareen/Carlynne and my Mama. Shar & Car planned a stagette for me, and my Mom planned a big supper for the relatives and boys (who were not invited to the stagette of course!) Turned out that we got the deck for a while, then ate at Earls instead of shishkabobbing it. It was still great times though.
Afterwards it was gift opening time (secretly my favourite part! kidding). My sister's are so dang creative. Remember the bridal shower Carlynne threw for me? Well this one was just as fun! I loooooove chick flicks, so the theme was CHICK FLICKS. They each gave me a DVD that had some meaning behind it (whether it be one of their favourites, my favourites, or it was a bonding thing between them and I). I was to guess who each one was from, and while I did not so hot, I still love all my new chicky flicky DVDs!!! There are like a billion of them!

I'm so excited that she's home, and I very much appreciate all the help she's been already! This picture was not taken this week, but I thought it was OH SO appropriate (and that she looks oh so cute)!
And the festivities continue...
Today is my Dad's birthday. He's twenty or thirty- something... right Dad?;)
Aaron came over and we had a leetle party last night (Mom's absent from the picture b/c she took it)
Mom, Shareen and I are getting things done left right and centre while my Dad is working his butt off earning the money to make such things possible. Tomorrow some more special guests shall arrive. EEEeeeeeee this is getting sooooo exciting!!! =)

I had plans to spend Thursday evening with Carlynne and my current and former roomies (plus significant others), so during the day I tried to get the ball rolling on the moving situation. We had to move stuff from everywhere:
Soon enough, it was time to head to Carlynne’s house to prepare for the roomie BBQ we were having with (almost) all former and current roomies from Carlynne’s house in honour of BRENDA AND PETER who were visiting
Good friends, good food, good times… That Daniel can make $8 slabs of meat taste like $30 slabs.
The shopping carts were a Godsend, although we had a couple tumbles and spills (and we looked like homeless people because we even rumbled through the alley).
Saturday morning was our first brekky in our new home (the 'rents and Lowell and I all stayed there). I made cornbread!
The rest of Saturday was the same story as Friday (but even hotter if that were even possible).
Sunday was church, errands, unpacking, cleaning more, and doing Loweller's hair. (cut & dye). All of this was jam-packed and exciting for us...but not so much for you. So, moving along...

It’s been whirlwind crazy nutso around here since finishing my placement, but here’s my life plan. After we get married (IN 17 SPANKIN DAYS!!!), we’re going on a honeymoon (destination undisclosed for now:), then moving to Edmonton, living in a fab condo we’re renting, and WORKING. I have a job with the Edmonton Public School Board working with kids aged 2.5-5. Should be dang cute (and a stinkin challenge).
Here’s Nanc and I on our last day of placement. We had a bonding moment and bought matching shirts to commemorate the occasion (and to make the rest of the TIRDS jealous:)
Oh heavens to betsy, there is so much more to share with you people, but I’m not sure where to start. Therefore, you are going to get the info in little spurts (that way it’s not so overwhelming for either of us). I’m a smart one, I am.
Here are some pictures to prove that I'm a SERIOUS therapist. I mean business, people. On Father's Day I checked my parents' hearing (with a dinosaur of a portable audiometer) and what a celebration it was!
