Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Let me start this post by saying I adore stormy weather--rain, wind, grey clouds, lightning... I love it all. It doesn't matter how chilly it is, I truly enjoy such days (except for snow-- I loathe snow/winter with all of my being). That being said, I am tired of rain right now. Mother Nature, you've won.  I bow to your greatness... now stop the rain!!!

But I suppose I'm getting ahead of myself. Let me start at the beginning... On Sunday, it began to rain here... and it hasn't stopped since. Yes, we're on our sixth full day of stormy weather. I mean, c'mon. We don't live in Vancouver or Seattle! We shouldn't be getting this much precipitation!  The province (Alberta) has actually put out flood water warnings. As well, my dad had to come home early from work today because the work site was flooded (he's a carpenter). So I suppose this is my plea for the rain to stop. Please dear God make it stop!

How is the weather where you are? Bright and sunny, I hope!!  Do you guys have any plans for the American May Long? (Canada's holiday was last weekend).  I'm busybusybusy this weekend. I have to finish shopping and pack for my trip to Virginia! I leave June 1st and I don't get back until August 10th--Man, is it difficult to pack for over two months! Eeeks!

R.I.P. Sir Gawain

R.I.P. Sir Gawain. You were a wonderful little beta fish. Alas, you did not have a warrior's death (as befitting your name and your castle), but you lived to the ripe old age of four years old.* You will be greatly missed. ♥

*Yes, he really was four years old. Everyone said he wouldn't make it beyond a year, because beta fish don't live that long. Hah. They clearly didn't know my little warrior. He was a fighter, he was.

Wedding Plans: I Need Your Help!

Hello all!

How have you been the past few weeks? I'm sorry I haven't been around much. I've been trying to recover from the craziness of the last semester. I'm also getting ready for my trip to Virginia. I leave June 1st and I'm there until August 10th, so there's a lot to get done! I'm excited though. This summer is going to consist of a lot of wedding plans, which brings me to the topic of today's post!

As a lot of you know, I'm getting married in August 2012 (tentatively August 18th, 2012). This means that I have to start planning the wedding this summer. I have to book the venue, hire a photographer, hire a DJ, etc etc... The list really does go on.  However, I'd like to include you guys in as much as I can. Therefore, you'll be seeing a lot of wedding posts in the next year or so, LOL.

For today, I'm going to start relatively small.  My question for you is: In your opinion, what is the most important aspect of a wedding? What is the least important aspect of a wedding?

Hello all!

So I now have my final grades for this semester! After everything I had to deal with in the last 4 months, I'm sooo happy with them.

Film History: 84% (A-)
Canadian Drama: 84% (A-)
Ancient Greece:  88% (A-)
History of Latin America: 90% (A)

So as you can see, I stayed pretty consistent in all areas ;)
