Mini Getaway

I've been a little mia these last few days. I worked all weekend so that I could have the next three days off work. A long weekend is pretty much the perfect time for a mini getaway and this one is dedicated to Victoria. The Bf and I are leaving Thursday morning for the ferry to take us to Vancouver Island. We'll make the scenic drive down to Sooke, where we're staying in a little Inn, and then the exploring begins! I'm so excited to get a little time away and to spend it with my love.
Now, I better go pack before my work day gets started!!

new addition

We've got a new addition to our little family, and no, its not a baby, its a BBQ! My new shiny baby sits on our fire escape, cooks burgers, hot dogs, grilled veggies, and anything else that should have grill marks on it. The fun part is that its portable. The legs fold down and you can wheel it around where ever you want! *cough, the beach, cough* BBQ's are so great to have during the warmer months. Summer foods just taste better on the grill!

Now all I need to do is figure out how to use it, so far, I've only been successful with Hot Dogs. And yes, the Bf turned it on for me.

life changing

July 13th, one year ago, changed my life.
It was the day my Bf and I left for our big adventure, three months travelling through Europe. It feels like it was so long ago, but at the same time it was only a year ago! We experienced so much in such a short time and learned a lot about ourselves and each other.
A lot has changed since then as well, for one, moving across the country to Vancouver. New jobs, new home, a whole new life, really. So much has changed in just one year, and after everything, I couldn't be happier.

These photos are a bit of and overview of the last year of my life, enjoy!

Check Mark

So, I've already checked off something on my summer activity list!! The Bf and I went to the Drive-in the other night! It's so much fun and there's so many traditions that go along with it. We watched Super 8, which is AH-mazing!!! Definitely recommend!! And Transformers, which has my other Bf in it, so you can't go wrong there, oh Shia......... anyways, a little off topic, that guy always distracts me. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of this fun adventure, but luckily I have photos from another recent adventure.
Last week the Bf and I went for a hike at Bromh Lake. We packed a picnic and a blanket so we could rest (read: bask in the sunshine) half way through. We're getting a lot better at this outdoor, more active lifestyle that Vancouver has to offer. And if I do say so myself, I look rather sporty, which is also a bit new to me ;)

...nobody puts Baby in the corner...

The Big Show

Wow, what a week! Apparently life taking over sometimes, means neglecting blog world. We all do it, and sometimes need too, ya know, a little break. Well, here it is, a couple of photos from Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Concert. It was such a good night. I can't lie though, no videos to share, you can here me singing along on almost all of them, and I just won't put you guys through that torture.

So, the most amazing thing happened to me yesterday......I met Britney Spears!
She's in Vancouver for her concert tonight (which I'm going to!!) and she arrived yesterday. I guess she wanted to do some shopping, and decided to come into Anthropologie......Thank goodness I was working. It was a really intense, surreal experience. I might have struggled to keep my composure, but I needed to keep as much professionalism as I possibly could,
I think I did ok ;)
We didn't get too much interaction with her, I said 'Hi' and she smiled at me, but it counts!!
This experience got me soo pumped for her concert tonight!

My words can't even describe my excitement. Love her!!
