UPDATE

It has been a long time since my last post. The summer's ending had me quite busy, making it easy to neglect my blog. Sorry for the lack of content and here is what I have been up to...

First off, my first giveaway was a success! A big thank you to all of you who entered. The winner was Patricia of thestripedvent.blogspot.ca. Go check out her blog. It's a good one. 

Of all the recent changes in my life, the most significant would definitely have to be my move. Not far, we are still in Victoria, BC. But, me and my husband bought our first place together!! It's a one-bedroom condo downtown. We love it.  It's perfect for us!
We are moved-in, but furnishing it slowly. All the basics are covered, but we still need a bed, a large mirror, a tea pot (well, this is definitely a necessary basic, but I'm picky), and all kinds of accents and decorations (including a fireplace, hopefully). We just got our internet and cable this Tuesday, so it's now a pretty functioning home.


The juicer and our little wood stump table are the best purchases we've made for the place. I'm obsessed with my juicer (Breville Fountain Plus)! This was the first time we used it. Please excuse my moving in/cleaning clothes and the huge mess that was our kitchen.


In other news, my sister had another baby, a girl. It's the third time she's made me an auntie and I absolutely adore her beautiful family.


My father came to BC for a visit and we all went on a short family vacay to Harrison Hot Springs. My sisters live on the mainland, so it was us all, and our husbands, etc. Growing up really adds to the number of family members but sure makes for eventful family fun! 

I saw Britney! 


Yes, that close to Britney. It was epic! I went to Vegas for a weekend bachelorette trip. It was truly unforgettable, as was this very lucky bride's wedding shower. 



Which leads me into this weekend, Thanksgiving weekend for us Canadians. My sister and her husband are visiting for the weekend and then I'm off to the Dominican Sunday afternoon for a wedding. 

Here are are few more pictures to fill in the blanks. After all, a picture says a thousand words...


At gymnastics, which is so much fun! Such a cute big brother and how precious are my sister's offspring!? 


My good friend Kate has been with me practically everyday helping with the new place or to entertain each other. In any case, this is her pup, a hyper-balding Pomeranian.




More nightlife in Vegas. The gracious host - far right, the bride - second from the right, me - third from the left, and the bride's gorgeous friends between. 


This cake though! 

Wishing all my fellow Canadians a Happy Thanksgiving long weekend. I hope everyone can find something to be grateful for, big or small.
