Life as I know it!

Hello everyone!

don't forget to go back and check out our wedding photo's after Wednesday. The password is WBwedding2009.

The wedding was amazing, more than I ever thought it could be. We ended up getting a stunning room at the Sutton Place Hotel on and it provided some nice relief for dad when pictures got to be to much. He is doing lots better and we were so happy to have him at the wedding.

I met him at the bottom of the stairs and he walked me to Chris and Craig, it was a beautiful ceremony and the party after (albight short) was a ton of fun. It was an incredibly hot and gorgeous day, we enjoyed doing our pictures in the afternoon. It was a good thing we did that too, as that evening was the most amazing of summer storms including the most spectacular orange sunset i have ever seen. There is an amazing time lapse video of the day on our wedding website also.

The staff at the Alibi room were phenomenal and the food was amazing. The beer selection was great and I drank a great peach beer most of the night. It was like drinking summer.

It was incredibly hot downstairs and so most of the guests had left by 11 pm. The end of the night was spent with Brooklyn, Eric, Tim, Angel and Kam. The DJ let us put on our own ipod and we partied down and laughed until about midnight. We took off and headed to our hotel, we had a great sleep and had a swim in the morning. We went and picked up Brooklyn at home and went out for a yummy IHOP breakfast, then headed out to mom and dads for the present opening.

We can not even begin to tell everyone how thankful we are for the very generous gifts. We are very blessed to have so many great friends who came and enjoyed our day with us.

Married life has been pretty hectic so far. We moved into our new home just 6 days after our wedding. You should read Andre's blog about the ridiculous moving company we used!! After their NINE HOUR....yes you read that right...9 hours to move a 2 bedroom aparment 15 km's away....they then proceeded to charge us 600 for a 4 hour move (3 blocks down the street!!), even though they were 5 hours late showing up, dropped 3 loads of boxes on the ground, and we were told we would only be charged 90 per hour.

You might be asking if we checked them online..and i sure did! I only read positive results, so I wasn't worried about it. Oh well lesson learned. I hope Andre takes it up to the better business bureau. I thought it was pretty disgusting that they owner of the shop would complain to me about my brother in law, who he had just scammed, and blame the 9 hour move on them being unorganized and having too much loose stuff unpacked. Funny since they had been fully packed for weeks and had even gone so far as to move all of the furniture into one central area so it could easily have been moved. They were way more organized than we were for sure!!!

OH WELL....anyway...Chris and I have been happily (sore and happy!!) been moving into our new house and getting everything set up! We are LOVING married life and are looking forward to our honeymoon in November.

We are still on the hunt for work for Chris, so keep your eyes open! School is coming back up, and I was lucky enough to get another scholarship! YAY!!!!!

Once again, i want to say thank you to everyone who has been supporting us!

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:


Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

Its been awhile dear readers but I am back in the land of the english speakers (i have been for almost a month sorry!!!!)
I was trying to get some time in with the handsome man in my life, get my house in order and get back on track with work after a month away, so of course i got SICK!!  YAY.    I will have lots of pictures and some stories to share with you all who are not on my facebook.  
But first I want to tell you about the one and only subscription box I keep around (even when money is tight).  This is my gift to me as an incentive to keep working hard on being a bigger, badder, sexier, stronger - more healthy version of myself.
I have reviewed a few boxes but for those who don't know, FabFitFun is a lifestyle box filled with full size (and occaional travel size) products that are focused on keeping you fabulous, fit and having fun.  I am so excited about this next box that I have to share with you the spoilers we have been given.
