Yesterday I had the opportunity to participate in yet another wonderful Kinette Club of Calgary event; the third annual Golf for Girls Tournament. This charity event was held at River Spirit Golf Club (27 km West of Calgary) in support of Sonshine Community Services. Hand in hand, this beautiful 27 hole golf course that is nestled on the edge of the Rocky Mountains and this amazing cause that provides a safe place for victims of domestic violence (as well as many other services) came together for an unforgettable day of golf, giving back, and good times.
Monday again?? How did that happen? Chalk it up to another busy weekend celebrating the marriage of our wonderful friends Danielle and Chad!
This wedding was outdoors at the Dennis’ family cabin northeast of Edmonton, AB and I must say that all the hard work and planning that Danielle and co. put into this event really paid off. This was an amazing wedding with all the details and decor to go along with it. It fit Danielle’s personality to a tee!
I met Danielle when I was 15 years old. We played on the same softball team for a few years and were instant friends. We lost touch for a few years and it wasn’t until I took a trip around the world and ended up back in Edmonton that we were reunited again through playing ball. Danielle and I have always had a lot of fun together and she is one of the most energetic, outgoing wonderful gals that I know. She is the kind of friend that I don’t have to talk to everyday and no matter how long its been we always seem to pick up right where we left off.
I am so lucky to have this girl in my corner and am so happy that we could spend the day celebrating with her and her hubs!!
Congrats my wonderful friend!
All the best to you both for a wonderful marriage!
This weekend along with going on our first date in our year of dates ( you can read more about that here…) we also had our first housewarming party! Our condo is about 900 sq feet and so we decided that instead of throwing one big party that would be uncomfortable and crowded in a smaller space we would host several “mini” house-warmings for our family and friends. To get the part(ies) started we decided to invite two other couples over for dinner and drinks with the possibility of hitting 17th ave after. We live in a really trendy area in Calgary just off 17th ave SW nicknamed “The Red Mile” that is filled with pubs, restaurants and plenty of nightlife so it makes it easy to head out for a few drinks on a Saturday night.
When I started this blog seven months ago I had no idea what to expect and no idea what “blogging” actually was. I figured this would be something that I would do for a short time until the next thing came along. Little did I know what a community of support and information existed in the blogging world and how much I would be inspired to write.
This past weekend was another great one for the boobs…um I mean books!
I participated in BAM (Bust a Move) , a 6 hour workout extravaganza in support of womans breast health and Alberta`s cancer free movement. Not knowing what to expect for an early Saturday morning, my friend Heidi and I doning our supportive Pink gear made our way to the Edmonton Expo Centre with about 350 other women and 50 very brave men (who were also donned in pink) and prepared ourselves to Bust a Move!
This year for St. Patty’s Day we were invited out with some of our good friends to share in some Irish Stew and of course green beer! Along the way some very fun pictures were taken that started what I am now naming:
“The Great St. Patty’s Day Photo Debate!”
The debate started over two pictures that were taken. One was taken and photo shopped by me, and the other was taken and photo shopped by our friend Josh. Obviously I thought my picture was better, but Tyler and Josh thought that Josh had me beat! So we put it out on Facebook where I took a huge leap (and am still in the lead with “likes”). Tyler thought that was unfair as I have more friends that he does on Facebook.
So I’m putting the votes in your hands Blog world…
Ah Friday, you are my favorite day! I thought I would take a quick moment (and when I say quick I mean it because as soon as I post this I am off to yoga) to post this video for some Friday afternoon laughs. Ahhhhh yogis…
I’m off to get my Chakras in line, work on my down dog, pick up some eye shadow for my third eye, HOLLA for my MALA….ugh I need a coconut water!
p.s Happy Friday, get out and do some yoga!
