Short update

Ok, now that you've pinched yourself and realized your NOT dreaming (it really IS a new post from me! - haha), I'll update you a bit.
My place is mostly set up. I just have my spare room to finish, but I don't really have any furniture to put in there, so my boxes of stuff I don't really know what to do with are sitting in there. I've been going through them all day today and needed a break so I thought I'd come say hi. Here are a few pics of my place:

Isn't it weird how small a room looks with no furniture in it ... it should be the other way around.

The kitchen!

The living room ... that's all you get for now. :)

It's been over 6 months now and I'm really liking not living out of a suitcase and thinking I'm going to have to move again soon ... yet I came from a family that never lived in one place for more than 5 years, so I don't really get too attached to a place, so I feel kinda bad when people ask me if I'm LOOOOOVING having my own place and I say, "Yeah, it's cool." I don't think I show the enthusiasm that most people expect. It's great, but it is what it is. A home ... for now. :)

In July I went to a wedding of a friend that I've known since Grade 5. It was so great to see her and our other bosom buddy as well. I love that our friendship has lasted all these years. Do we see each other often? No, but we can pick up where we left off and it's NEVER awkward. I love that and I love these beautiful women!
In August I got to see Mr. Buble again. It was a GREAT concert ... despite the fact that I didn't get him to sign the picture of him and I. :(

In September I went to my 20 year reunion ... I know ... I don't know how that's mathematically possible since I'm only 28. ;) And if you look closely at the picture below, you'll see I went to my reNunion, not my reunion. :)

I got to see my High School BFs again at the reunion. We are 3 very different people but I love that it never kept us from being such great friends.

There weren't as many there as we would've liked, but those of us that came had a GREAT time and promised we would get together in 5 years again instead of another 10.

In October I got to go to my "happy place" and watch Steve Nash play basketball in Vancouver. It feels like just yesterday that I played myself ... but I guess I let the cat out of the bag by telling you what I did in September that you know it wasn't just yesterday. :P

October brought my friend, Karen's birthday and when I asked her what she wanted to do, she said she wanted to go on a hike, so off we went to hike Elk Mountain.

It's a GREAT hike with a beautiful view at the top. I'm glad we did it when we did because I'm pretty sure there's a lot of snow up there now.

Now we're in November and what will that bring? Judging from the pictures I've just posted, I'm sure another hairdo will be in order ... man my hair changes quickly! I'm not sure what else it'll bring, but hopefully it won't be 6 months before I let you know. :)
