Winter Chinook

posted on: Friday, January 28, 2011

These photos were taken earlier on in the week. We had our annual division meeting at work, and afterwards S and I went for Vietnamese. Before lunch I asked her to snap a couple photos. I received this dress from Mikhaila of All the Pretty Birds Vintage Etsy shop. She had a giveaway a while back and I won!!! I picked out this dress, and I was so happy when I received it in the mail and it fit perfectly! I'll have to take some more photos of it so I can show of the cute button details. Mikhaila and I also did little clothes swap, and I'm excited to show you guys what she sent me! You can see how Mikhaila styled my AA skirt here.

So, I think I'm going to be able to get back into the swing of blogging. Things seem to be settling down a little. I decided to buy a white board so that I can have a constant reminder of my "to-do-list". I feel more organized already. 

 JP was in Saskatchewan the last three weeks and he just got back today!! It was so amazing to see him. I missed him so much. Only three more weeks until Mexico and our wedding!!!

Morning Frost

Well, I've been a slacker on the blog the last little while. I've been feeling really tired and busy and just haven't had time to take outfit shots or even to catch up on what's going on in the blogging world. The wedding is fast approaching and I feel like I'm always running around finishing last minute errands. Every last second of my time is planned out up until February 20th. I've also been feeling sick the last couple of weeks, and finally found out on Thursday that I needed a root canal. So, Friday morning (yesterday) I ended up getting a root canal. Hopefully I will start to feel a little better now. Mexico can't come soon enough. All I want to do is relax on the beach. 

Does anyone else watch Pretty Little Liars? I've gotten addicted! I couldn't wait to find out who A was and if the killer was A or someone else, so I bought the books and finished all 8 in two weeks. I think it's kind of funny that I've gotten into teen novels at this time in my life, but sometimes you just need an easy read. Once I start a book I can't put it down until it's done. I like that I can finish a teen novel in a day if I want. 

These are some photos I took with my iPhone yesterday. A tree covered in frost on my way to the dentist, ginger ale and candy, and the second last PLL book. 

Winds are Whipping

JP and I spent the majority of our Saturday running around finishing some final touches for our wedding. We needed to get our wedding bands still, and we needed to replace my engagement ring. I know, this sounds really bad, but I lost my engagement ring. It was pretty traumatizing. I literally cried everyday for two weeks. It was so devastating, and I felt nauseous whenever I thought about it. The silver lining on replacing the ring was that the store where JP bought it just recently changed their warranty policy, so instead of the ring being under warranty for 5 years, it's now under warranty for a lifetime. The other positive was that we had the ring insured. Thank goodness. 

The weather is starting to turn extra cold again. JP snapped these photos really quick while we were walking/running back to our car. I wanted to take my coat off to show off my blouse and cardigan, but I couldn't bare it. It was too chilly, and the wind was picking up.

JP and I spent New Years Eve at a local pub with friends. Both of our sets of friends who are visiting from Australia came out to celebrate NYE with us, which was really amazing. Love you Sim and Colly!! More photos coming soon...

Happy New Year!!
