Happy Friday!

So happy it is Friday... It's been a long couple of weeks because Ian has been working so much. I've been doing lots of house cleaning and organizing. This weekend I think I am going to work on Cooper's Birthday Banner. (And play Starcraft II but shhh... don't tell Ian... I originally bought the game for him!) Today I went through my camera's SD card and pulled off our honeymoon pictures. I still need to organize them and throw them up on Shutterfly but I did grab the videos.

I love otters. They just make me smile. I took this at the Seattle Aquarium.

The double rub action is awesome. Very talented.

As I say in the video, this was taken in front of our hotel on one of our last days. We had just walked down the waterfront to a Starbucks (of course!) and were heading back to the hotel for dinner. I miss Seattle! I think it's a special place for both Ian and I. So pretty. So our type of place. *sigh*

Bad Clip Art Is Bad

Of course... I have seen worse... but why include it if it's so bad?

I think the worst offender was my project management instructor. Her slides looked like the 90s threw up on them.

Coop Scoop - Birthday Inspiration Board

Cooper is turning 2! Little goober isn't supposed to grow up... but I guess he has to! I am going to help my sister plan a Pirate themed birthday party. With Ian tucked away at work, I've had some time on my hands. I built an inspiration board for the Pirate theme to get some ideas going. Should be a fun shindig! (It makes me miss Disneyland! Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!)

Happy Anniversary!

It's only been 6 months... but I thought I would post some of the wedding pictures I just received.

I tricked Ian and threw a snowball at him...

Ian before the ceremony...

Amanda's instructions were to squish up against Ian so I did!

We're not the kind of couple to smash the cake in each other's faces... so we were trying to be careful.

Of course, I had to thrown in a picture of the little guy that stole the show...

I Love You Thursday

Why? Because you're awesome. You're after Wednesday. You're closer to Saturday than Tuesday (going forward of course). You are the last day I am in the office this week... Plus, there is stuff to do the next couple of days. Ian is getting off "early" on Friday so we can go to dinner. It is our 6 month anniversary. Normally we probably wouldn't acknowledge this one... but it's an excuse to go out to sushi. Also, it's been a bit of a stressful 6 months.

Ever since I moved to Canada my life has been ruled by paperwork. It all comes down to paperwork. I *hate* paperwork. I didn't before I moved here. It seems every process I've had to go through has had issues. My permanent residency is proving to be just as difficult as anything else if not more so. I look forward to when I am not dealing with paperwork that is so important! It's stressful and because I am a worry wart I make it worse.

Anyway, on Saturday we have a barbecue held by our builder. I am making Ian take a lunch break from work to go. I'll take anything we can get from them... and it might yield more information about the development. The best part is that we get to meet our future neighbors, Alicia, Alex and Ella. Yay!

Speaking of the barbecue, I am sad to say that Ian's playoff beard will be no more as of Saturday. His plans were thwarted by the fact that he doesn't want to look homeless. It's pretty funny because it's coming in bright red but patchy. He has quarter-sized spot next to his chin that is completely smooth. It was also hard for me to sneak progress photos. But I am still holding out hope that he starts to grow it out again after Saturday. =]

Post Zumba Report: Very sore. It was a lot of fun and a good workout. But combined with the previous day's soreness... I am super stiff today.

Lastly, here is our latest shot of the dirt. Riveting.

Aunt B & GMa's Big Adventure

My mom and I ventured to Virginia for Canada Day/Fourth of July. Unfortunately, Ian couldn't make it due to his work schedule. But then he got a fancy illness and it was better that he couldn't come. We arrived to perfect weather that thankfully lasted the whole time.

Max hanging with Grandma or GMa as she is sometimes known.

We went to a farm and got to walk around in the "contact area". Here is Cooper... he was standing amongst the goats!

And this is the baby goat that wouldn't leave me alone. Seriously, he kept walking under my skirt... licking my leg... hmm... maybe that's how I got the rash...? He was mighty cute though.

Here is the rest of the pictures from the trip. Can't wait to see everyone on Labor Day weekend... Uncle "I" gets to come this time!

As you can see, I have started a Shutterfly site... I reviewed my options for slideshow widgets and this seems to be the best one. Take a look at our site here: Zebraloudsounds Snapshots.
