So I decided to do an update today. I haven't done one of these in a while, so it might be a bit long--sorry! =)
To start things off, I'm going to post a picture of my cat getting her nails clipped...
No, I kid you not. That's my cat lounging in my mums arms while her Claws of Doom are trimmed. We've always found her laidback attitude amusing, but she was extra relaxed on Sunday. I mean, look at her! She looks like she's about to fall asleep!
-I received a letter of approval from the United States Consulate in Vancouver two weeks ago. I have made it past several stages so far, which is a good sign. I just have to fill out a million forms (which I've been doing for the past few days...), and then I'll be able to book my interview and physical. Unfortunately, both need to be done in Vancouver. So guess what that means? Yep, I'll be taking a wee bit of a trip sometime in the next few months lol. As you can imagine, I wasn't pleased when I found out, but there's nothing I can do about it. I just hope I can schedule both of them in the same trip. Otherwise, I'll have to fly to Vancouver... twice. Oy.
-As you know, my Bridal Shower went really well. I had a lot of fun and I think everyone who went had a blast =) Well, this past week I've been checking things off of my wedding registries, uploading pictures to Facebook, and writing thank you notes. It's been fun =) The picture to the right is of my signed apron!
-I had a bit of a spending "spree" this weekend. I ordered two university hoodies, a university mug, my bridal jewellery (squee!), the bridesmaids' big "surprise" gift, and... MY WEDDING INVITATIONS! WOOHOO! I'm very excited about it. I ordered examples back in March and LOVED them, so I'm excited to get the complete set now =) I'll post pictures when they arrive!
-This one is extremely random, but I've learned that my cat loves cucumbers and orange peppers. We knew she loved cucumbers, but the orange pepper was a surprise....
-I don't know when I last gave an update on my writing, so I'll just give a brief overview. I'm now at 26, 529 words. It's not nearly where I wanted to be (not even close), but I'm trying to cut myself some slack. I need to take into consideration how busy--and stressed--I've been before I start berating myself. I still love my story, which is all that matters. I'll just keep chugging along until I finish this sucker lol.
-I know I've mentioned it before, but I went and had my university graduation pictures taken a few weeks ago. The proofs just came in and they're really nice! Seeing them makes me realize how close I am to "officially" graduating. In one month, I'll be walking across the stage to accept my degree. I have a feeling I'll cry--as will both of my parents. I don't see how we couldn't. Finishing university is a huge accomplishment for me and my family.
- I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but one of my bridesmaids (Kelsey) is up for valedictorian at our university. We don't know if she's going to get it yet, but I really hope she does. I think it would be so cool to have one of my best friends be the valedictorian of my university for 2012!

So there you have it! A quick update on what I've been up to =)
How have you guys been? Any weird cats in your family?? Any difficulties with the government? Any writing news?
