:: Reception Set-Up ::

:: Yesterday I (along with Mum & Dad, Jennifer & Michael, Kevin & Claudia & Stephanie) spent the better part of the day getting the UBC Boathouse prepared for the wedding ~ Jennifer had so many great things to use on the table and around the room that were "beach" themed, it was so much fun to set up! Hope you enjoy the pictures, we are almost ready to head back into Vancouver to primp & dress for the wedding, I will update the blog as soon as I have time ::

:: Up to my eyeballs ::

:: Well it's finally here, the long awaited week of the wedding for Jennifer & Michael. Such a fun time, but also so many little things to do, prepare and complete prior to Saturday (& Sunday, the second reception) ::
:: So this afternoon we have to pick up my dress (hopefully it fits now, this will be the 3rd try to get it to fit properly) then we pick up Paul's tux and we're on the way to the rehearsal followed by a BBQ @ Michael's Parents Place. Tomorrow is set-up downtown @ 2:00, Saturday 10:00 am head downtown pick up bride and go to her place to get ready with all the girls and Paul goes off with all the guys to get ready - the rest of Saturday is pictures and MOH duties along with the reception at the Vancouver Yacht Club. Then Sunday there is a second reception in which we all have to dress in our appropriate GM & MOH outfits again. During all this we are lending our child out to any open hands...just kidding, but he (our son) is be toted along with Grammie & Grampie for most of these days ::
:: So today I have to finish laundry, pack Jacob's multiple bags for the next few days, iron Paul's rehearsal attire, iron my rehearsal attire, pick up my dress, do my hair, finish the table name cards, tidy the house so it's not a complete disaster by the end of the weekend....hmmm, nope that's not it, I also have write a toast to the bride! ::
:: I'm going to sign off here so that I can get a few of the above done prior to Jacob waking up from his nap, so have a great weekend everyone and I will be back on Monday (probably in recovery mode) but I will have pictures from these glorious events, so stay tuned! ::
:: To Jennifer & Michael, Congratulations on your wedding day ~ I hope all of the planning and details make your day extra special, you deserve it! Love *S ::


:: Jen & Me ::

:: To celebrate Jen's (Paul's Sister) upcoming wedding I took her out to Pure Nail bar on South Granville followed by a light lunch at Picnics (by Meinharts) and then a whole bunch of shopping that quickly made our afternoon race by! ::
:: Then we headed to SalaThai (Jennifer's favorite place to eat) and I have to say it was amazing food. After that we met our Mom's and headed to Earls for Dessert (sorry no pic's, it was all too tempting and so we forgot to take pictures!). At Earls we each gave Jen a little piece of lingerie (this was a surprise to her and she was SO delighted). Then we went and saw the movie Stardust, it was a cute fairy tale and transformed us to another non-wedding, non-baby world...even if it was only for 2 hours! ::
:: I had a great time treating you all day Jen, hopefully we can do it again soon! ::

:: Harrison Hot Springs ::

:: Over the long weekend we headed up to Harrison to stay with our friends Michael & Coby and their kids, Riley, Halle & Kylee at Coby's Parent's place. We had a great weekend; we arrived late friday night (around 9ish) and then got up to a deluxe breakfast followed by a day at the beach, then we had a great dinner of salmon and all the fixin's as well as my social apple betty (although I missed that because I wasn't feeling well) ::
:: Sunday morning was a lazy morning around the house then we headed into Harrison (the live just outside of the town) for a walk and enjoyed some Ice Cream at Baskin Robins. I was having some contractions in the afternoon so we cut our walk a little short and headed back home. Once we returned home the little kids went down for naps and we all visited and prepared for dinner. After dinner we packed up and headed home, we figured we have such a busy week this week with Jennifer & Michael's wedding that we had better head home and get some things done around here on Monday ::
:: But it was great while it lasted ~ Thanks for a great time guys, maybe next time it will be in Cultus Lake??? (Coby's parents are thinking of building out there next - nice eh?) ::

:: ENJOY ::
