Sunday I celebrated my 27th birthday with my parents, siblings, and my new inlaws. Jason grilled chicken and we had baked beans, salads, and birthday cake. Mom really got me good this year with a butterfly that came flying out of my card. Yikes! That one really startled me, especially because my Mom is not normally a prankster :) Asia's card was also very entertaining...a dog with a big fuzzy afro. Very funny :D The birthday cake also reaffirmed that I do not have enough hot air. Dad had to be sure to close the window so any breeze wouldn't help me...not that it would have made a difference. Out of 27 candles I think I blew out about 5 of them...

Birthdays are funny things, every year I have one, but I fail to feel any older. You'd think that getting married would make me feel old, but honestly I still feel like a kid playing house. Nonetheless it was fun to have everyone over to celebrate. Life goes by far too fast, and its good to slow down and enjoy it.

Recently I discovered that I LOVE blueberries! I know that may sound a little odd, but growing up in Ontario the blueberries I knew were the wild ones. Wild blueberries are vastly different from fresh domesticated (?) blueberries around here - they are much smaller and a little tart. My mom used to make tasty blueberry muffins with them, but other than that I wasn't a huge fan.

Well, a couple of weekends ago we were visiting Jason's folks. A neighbor brought by some blueberries and we took some home with us. They are huge and plump and juicy and sweet. Very tasty! This week I made blueberry muffins and blueberry cobbler. Now on my to do list is going out to pick blueberries, something I've never done. Of course the best part will be snacking on them straight from the bush.

An Old Married Woman!

Jason and I are now hitched! On Saturday, June 2, 2007 we officially tied the knot and took the plunge into married life. On Monday we headed out on the open road for a two-week roadtrip out west. The wedding went well, no major problems and the honeymoon was nice and relaxing. Now we're both back to work and back to life as normal...well sort of anyways. Embarking on a new married life is hardly normal for us, at least not yet. Its kind of funny, because I don't really feel any different, but my entire life is different now. I guess that's a good thing.

Here are a few pictures from the wedding. If you want to see more, you'll just have to come by the house. We have lots of pictures from the wedding and honeymoon that we'd love to share. Far too many to upload on here :)

Only 15 Days Left!!

I can hardly believe it. It seems like only yesterday that we had six months to go, which at that time felt like an eternity. Now the big day is only 15 days away. There is lots to do so I need more time, but at the same time I want the day to be here tomorrow so we can start the party!

Settling In

Saturday was a fun day, spent the entire day loading and unloading boxes, furniture and other items. Then the house was full of boxes, and rather unliveable because of the mess. So Jason and I spent the rest of Saturday and Sunday bringing some semblance of order to the living/dining room and kitchen. We also setup my bed so I have a place to sleep. I'm currently sleeping in the jungle so that we can fix up the master bedroom. Yesterday we went to Lowe's to pick out paint colors for the main floor rooms...can't wait to see how they turn out. Hopefully over the next week or two we'll have the entire main floor done. Then we can get rid of the "WOW RED!" in the master bedroom.

Today is the Day

I'm sitting on pins and needles today because today is the day that we go and sign the papers to close the deal on the house. Last night after work I got a certified check for closing costs and today I get to leave work early. I'm nervous and excited at the same time. Don't know how I'm supposed to concentrate on work today...

I am so ready to move, my apartment currently looks like a storage shed, filled up with boxes and everything taken apart and ready for Saturday. Only a few more days and then I can the new house, home :D

3 More Days!!

I can hardly wait, only 3 more days and Jason and I will have the keys for our new house. I've been packing like crazy so that I'll be ready for moving in. It's going to be so great to have a house, very exciting :-)
