Family Time

Today C and I decided we would take the little guy on a quick trip to see some of the construction machines C works ..J LOVES machines, so he was pretty excited to go. It probably wasn't the best day to go because it is so cold out and we had to stand outside for along time because J didn't want to leave.

 After finally convincing him to go we headed off to subway...another favorite of J's.

Next, something I wanted to do!!  We went to a neighbourhood that has the most stunning houses ever!! ...I call them my dream homes..this place is is actually called Hidden Valley...and it is right here in Kitchener. I love all the detail put into these homes, the mix and colours of all the materials and they all had such beautiful front entrances and doors.

So check out some of the pictures from our day...sorry some of the pictures of the houses aren't that great because it was snowing and we were driving in the car. Enjoy!

I think that sometime in the spring or summer I might dive by the houses again and take more pictures when it is sunny out...not grey and snowy.

Wedding Stresses

On March 26, 2011 I will be getting married to my wonderful fiance, Chris. With only two months left I have lots of things to do... I don't know how I am going to do it all... I have to finalize everything, order favors, buy wedding party gifts, get alterations, and lots of little things that you don't even think of until last minute. I have to do all this while my school projects pile up one after another... oh boy!! this is going to be a busy two months.

This past weekend I finally mailed out my invitations... I know it is really close to the wedding to be sending them out, it should have been done a month and a half ago... oh well, it is mostly family coming anyway and they all know about it. Here is my beautiful invitation created by my sis Brittany.

I love them!!
