A week or two in review

Oh goodness, it has been a long time coming. I ment to post a while ago but life has been hectic. So first I must say on April 5th 2007, Adam Smith and Jen Burford became Adam and Jen Smith. It was a very nice wedding. They both looked great and Jen's wedding dress was beautiful. I have a few pictures, but not many because my camera ran out of batteries during the reception. I was not impressed. Congrdulations Adam and Jen. I ran into them on the weekend, they looked great, married life is treating them well.

This picture is their first dance as husband and wife.

Julia and Karen were there also to join in the festivities.

So after the reception Chad and I went out to Dairy Queen for ice cream with Josh and Julia. The after wedding double date has kinda truned into a tradition. I think we have done that with almost everyone's wedding since just after Chad and I got married (excluding theirs of course).

The next day was good friday and Chad and I made our way up to New Glasgow for the easter weekend. My whole family was there, it was a great time. Friday we didn't do a whole lot, just relax and got caught up with everyone, and had a big dinner at my grandparents place. Then saturday the guys played hockey at the church as per normal. Road hockey every saturday at the new glasgow chapel rain or shine. They had fun though. Then saturday night My 2 sisters, my brother, my sister's boyfriend, Chad and I went to see Blades of Glory. Too funny. I really liked it. There were a few people in the theater, but I think that our group of people had a completely different sense of humor. There were times when we would be the only ones laughing out lound in the whole place. It was funny though. What else could you expect though from Will Farrell and John Heder together as Ice skaters.

So, I believe I mentioned before about my Parents new house and how awesome it is. However the Kitchen was SOOOO awful! It was old and gross and ugly. So my parents had the whole thing redone. I took a few pictures. It looks much better now. It also looks better in person than in these pictures.

This is the counter top where everything ends up
So, then on sunday we woke up to a huge pile of snow. I was not impressed, I hate snow and it is time for Spring! I was hoping I could get another day at home out of it, but the roads were pretty good by sunday evening so we ventured home. I wish I could have skipped work. But on Sunday after church we did the traditional Easter Egg hunt. It is so funny. All of us Kids are between 20 and 24, but Dad just loves to hide those eggs. So we went a huntin'. Chad of course found the most. Chad has won every year he has been involved (which I am thinking was only 2 or 3 years now). But we had fun.
Then Monday it was back to work for the busiest week of my life. I dont think I have ever been so stressed out! Today isn't so bad, but I have a feeling since we are getting a little busier in general it wont be the last time i have a week like that. Yuck! I wish I was in school again!
This weekend was pretty mellow. Just the way I like it. Sunday, we had a big mexican pot luck at Chad's grandparents house. It was fun, we all got to meet Mallory's new boy. He seems very nice, and he is quite good looking.
So now that is almost it...I have sad news...dont stress out too much, it's just about backetball. So my office pool is over and I didn't come in first, but I did come in second! I beat my Boss which was really the whole point, so really I did win!
In conclusion....I wanted to say congradulations to Tanya and Colin. They have a brand new baby boy! I cant wait to see him. I already know he is cute, how could he not be? Tayna and Colin are 2 very good looking people, and I'm confident they will be great parents.
Ok, that's all for now...I hope everyone has a great day!

Finally...a post

So, I have recovered from all of Julia's Birthday Fun, and I have Pictures so I am ready to post.

Well on saturday all the girls got together and went to dinner at Jack Astor's for a little birthday fun for Julia. It was pretty good. I am not good at waiting for a table, and we had to wait what felt like forever, but was really only like 45 minutes. But once we sat down it was quite enjoyable. There were quite a few of us, so I didn't get to talk a whole lot to the girls at the other end of the table like Kellie L, Chantelle, Adele and Jesica which was too bad, but we were having some fun at the other end. It was very fun to hang out with the girls. So durning some of the conversation going on, we decided we needed to start running together. So, Katrina and Meaghan suckered me into running with them that same night when we got home at like 9pm. It was a good run (even though i couldn't really keep pace with them) i am in bad shape. But hopefully I can keep up the routine.

I love this picture...look at Julia's face....priceless!

Some fun at our end of the table Love that bow Julia!

Then on sunday it was general conference, inbetween the sessions we were invited to Chad's grandparents house for dinner. It was good to see all the family. I got some pictures of Calla and Reese. They are the cutest little girls. We had a good time.

This is Reese...she is about 1 month and 1 week old in these pictures.

Calla Being Silly...she's so cute.

Then on Monday it was back to work as usual. After work Julia and I decided to go for a run at 7. It was good, I did a little better than Saturday. After our run, we went up to see Kellie Lambert. We ended up having another little party for Julia, with cake and Ice cream (good thing we went for that run)

Tuesday was Julia's REAL birthday, and Chad and I went out to dinner with Josh and Julia. We went to Swiss Chalet. It was pretty good. There was no singing or free stuff for Julia, which was too bad, but i think that had a lot to do with our waiter...he wasn't very cool.

Wednesday came and Julia and I went all out... I have been thinking about getting my hair cut for about 2 months, and last night I did it. Julia also got her's cut, and it looks AWESOME!! I kind of like mine, but I will like it better when it grows back a little more. I'll have to post those pictures a little later.

Today is thursday...Adam and Jen's wedding is today! I am so excited to see all the decorations and what everyone is going to be wearing. I will be taking pictures and posting them soon. Also Chad and I are going to my parents place for Easter weekend, we are leaving tomorrow morning. There will be more pictures to come after that!
Now that we are all caught up, I hope I can stay on top of my posts! Have a good day everyone! and a good easter weekend!
