Wedding Craziness

Oh my! This past weekend (Friday & Saturday) has been a busy rollercoaster. Karen & Jon's wedding was Saturday and it was crazy fun. Friday evening, the whole entourage got together to put on the seat covers & tie bows. LOL. That was a task. Most couldn't tie to bows. I think I did pretty well. Hehehe. The girls went upstairs to the suite and had a shot of Alize and open our little candles gifts from Karen. What a sweetheart!

I was up the next morning (more like 4 hours later) to get ready and help the MOH aka my sister get dressed and check up on last minute details before the ceremony. I have to say, I had to hold back the tears because it just felt so wonderful seeing my little "sister" (no blood relation) get married. I've known her since she was baby. And now she's married to a great man who loves her dearly.

The reception was a crazy party!!!! My uncle aka Karen's dad was hilarious! That's where she gets her crazy & fun attitude from. And almost all the "tropa kids" were there celebrating. It was just great. There was just too many memories to remember. Oh, and everything we made the past few weeks turned out beautifully. <3 Tee hee.

One wedding down. One more to go this coming Saturday!

I just wish...

...that I could have a whole day just to scrapbook all the pictures i've been wanting to make a page or mini book for! Just ONE WHOLE DAY to be creative & have fun!

I guess one day I will...

This is such a cool site! I'm going to have to use these for scrapbook pages for sure! Hehehe.

In other news...
Day 4 of my 21 Challenge went well! I ate a yummy, healthy wrap, took the 5 flights of stairs at work and went for a good 20 minute run! Woohoo! I've ran 3 times this past week. That's a real good improvement...from doing nothing. Hehehe.

21 Day Challenge

So, I want to do this 21 Day Challenge. Apparently, it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. My goal is to exercise and eat healthier. I've been feeling bit stressed and high strung lately (I think people at work are noticing it) so I said that I will be healthier...mind & body. Then I check out Rhonna Farrer's blog and she has this thing of the 21 Day Challenge! What perfect timing!

I guess I started my challenge Sunday, September 6th. I ran for 40 mins then did some sit ups and pilates. OMG. It hurt. Monday (Labour day), I actually ran again. For about 25 mins and did some lateral arm workout with my resistance bands, sit ups and pilates. I was hurting really bad (aka out of shape) and then I had to take the stairs at work (5 flights up) because there was only one elevator working! Today, I didn't have anyone to watch Ethan before work so I could go run so I just climbed the 5 flights of stairs again. Hehehe. BUT, I also had a nice healthy salad and yogurt for supper. Part of my eating healthier. I'm actually starting to feel very motivated and happy with myself. But it's only been 3 days. We'll see how I feel by the end of next week. We'll see if by September 27th i've got this goal down. =)

*crossing my fingers*

Summer is here?! In September?!

Yes, summer has arrived in Winnipeg...first week of September. *SHOCKING*
It's been HOT (i.e. in the mid to high 20s) and HUMID! AND SUNNY! AND NO CLOUDS IN SIGHT! Whoa! LOL!
Unfortunately, this long Labour Day weekend, i'll be spending it at work...working my evening shift! Ahhh...not really looking forward to it. However, the next 4 weeks will be HECTIC and crazy! For one, I have TWO stagettes lined up on the 12th AND a surprise wedding shower. Secondly, I have 2 weddings I have to help decorate and prepare things for their days (the 26th and Oct 3rd). PLUS i'm an MC & wedding co-ordinator for wedding #1 and a bridesmaid/secondary sponsor in wedding #2 (along with my Ethan who is a ring bearer). Thirdly, I have all these meetings/committee work I have to complete ASAP for this month for work. And fourth, my whole unit/ward is moving to our new & beautiful new unit October 7th and I have to help organize and pack things up. I'm freaking out! I feel stressed. I supposedly have vacation time at the end of September/beginning of October, but those days are reserved for the weddings. Errrr....I just hope this month ends quickly. Hehehe.

Anyway, the past weekend, Ethan, Tommy and I went to Fun Mountain with friends. Can you believe it, it was MY FIRST TIME there...and Ethan's as well. Hehehe. I had so much fun! Ethan did too (when I didn't submerge him in the water) ...oops! Here are some fun pictures from that day! =)
