Happy Halloweenie! :)

We're all ready to hand out candy to little Halloweenies! :)

We're (and by "we" I mean "I") are(am) excited to FINALLY be able to have a Jack'o'Lantern on our front porch and welcome Trick-or-Treaters. :) Apartment life was good while it lasted... but that's over now (I hope!) !!

We had some friends over last night for some food and good times. I made a dee-li-cious pumpkin and chocolate cake (see bellow) and it was a huge success!

Random Update... if you can call it that!

It's been eons since my last post. Why, you ask? Well... because it's been eons since I've had something to talk about. Not that today's much different, but I feel I should take some time and blog a little.

I accepted an extension to my contract at work (bless my little soul!) so I guess I won't be out of a job just yet... It's kind of bitter sweet really. I was looking forward to taking on something new that wouldn't drain all my energy and the very last ounce of positivity in me. On the other hand, being unemployed is unknown to me. The unknown is always a bit terrifying.

I have a cold/flu. Not quite sure. Lots of fever yesterday, today, throat aches like a mofo and my energy is very low. I'm taking some vitamins, washing my hands and drinking fluids. Doing all I should be doing so I just have to wait until it passes.

I feel like I'm finally catching up on things and it sucks that I have more energy while I'm at home sickly than when I'm healthy at work.

Halloween is just around the corner and I should probably thy to come up with a costume. Oh hell! It's snowing too... joy joy! I'm just a warm ray of sunshine today, don't mind me.

The dress has been ordered!

Yes. That's right. I said it. :)

I ordered my dress today! *squee*

I think the hardest part of picking it and ordering it was giving up the amazingness of trying on a bazillion different dresses over and over and over again! *sigh*

I couldn't be more happy with it! I love it, it's awesome!

Oh... and we're down to less than 10 months until the wedding, but let's just enjoy the fact that my dress is ordered and remain in total denial of the wedding day countdown... *dam-dam-da-dam*

Thanksgiving in all it's glory!

We went to visit Maggie and Marc in Winnipeg this Thanksgiving weekend. Smartest thing we've done in a while! :)

It was awesome to drive out there together and spend some quality-car-time. It allowed us to bring Nova along for the ride and see how well she does with traveling -pleasantly surprised!

We had a really great time with friends and we ate some dee-liii-ciiii-ous food! It was nice to spend time with friends we miss and to see their new home! :) We're so blessed to be posted so close to eachother, 6 hours drive is a fart in the wind!!

It was nice to do everyday things all together. That's what I miss the most, I think. It's fun to do touristy stuff when you visit somewhere new but it's important to keep it simple and enjoy the little moments that make friendships special.

Those are the things to be thankful for! To be able to spend some time with those we love. :)
