So, Happy New Year Everyone!!! Hope you had a fun night!
I did! I was in Calgary for my friend Sarah's wedding. She got married on Jan 1. So for new years we went to a friend of her husbands family's house. We had food, played games, watched fireworks and just had a fun time! :)
The drive down to Calgary was fine. Dry roads, good weather. We made it there faster than we were expecting. The drive home yesterday was a different story all together. It was slippery, we saw around 25 vehicles in the ditch. Some people were driving more slowly, but one guy in a truck flew past us and we later saw him in the ditch. It was an interesting trip. Took longer to get home than expected. But better slow and safe.
The wedding was great! Sarah looked amazing in her dress. Mike (husband) is a police officer, so he was in a dress tux, he looked great too! They were both so happy. Then there were pictures and appetizers. Supper was really good too! Instead of a cake they had mini cupcakes in their wedding colours. They were delicious! Some dancing ended the night and we all waved good bye to them as they drove off for the mountains!
Christmas was also fun! Becky came over. We went to the Christmas Eve service at church, after having the customary Corn Chowder. Haha. Christmas was nice. I got lots of fun presents. 2 pairs of jammies, 8 dvds, lego, Hot Chocolate, Books, fun socks...lots of stuff. Becky spoiled me cuz she has a job now...haha. Mom got lots of good gifts too. She seemed happy with all we got her! French toast for breakfast. We had a yummy turkey dinner. Watched some movies. Played some Lego Indiana Jones on my Wii. It was fun to have Becky here. It was a good weekend!
We even braved going and doing a little shopping on Boxing day. The mall we went to was not as busy as I was expecting. I used the gift cards I got from Becky and so did Mom. Becky bought herself and us some yummy smelling bath salts. (We get them for each other every year lately cuz they only come out at Christmas and she couldn't find the stand anywhere she had gone before Christmas)
Other than that just been relaxing and watching tv and movies, reading etc. Ooh, I have a potential temporary job. I don't know when I'll hear about it, but if I get it. I'd have a job for 4 months, making $20 and hour. Not really quite what I wanted. I wanted permanent full time, but it would be a big step up from no job and no money. :)
Now to see where this year takes me... Hope it takes you all to good places!
