Fairytale Life

I always loved fairytales growing up, I loved princesses and castles and knights on horses, Fairies with wings and flowers in their hair. I love dresses and makeup and ribbons and lace… I like looking pretty and cooking and taking care of others, boys opening doors and fixing anything broken. In summary, I’m about as stereotypically a girl as it gets.

This has led to the discovery of Laura jobs and non Laura jobs.
Lifting a rolled up raft from the truck to the shore, that’s definitely not a Laura job. Making breakfast for the strong men that will do the above job? Laura written all over it.
Carrying tents and moving stacked chairs also fall into the non Laura category. Dinners and picking up wedding gifts I’ve got covered though.

I appreciate those who understand our distinct roles. Glad we came to an understanding so early in our friendship.

Feels Like the End of Summer

Today was sad. Today marked the last Sunday Dinner as we know it. A group of us have been getting together for dinner, sometimes there are wild card guests but it has basically been the same group of us. The host provides the main dish and everyone else is assigned items, it's worked so well and we've had some of the best laughs and food. But all good things must come to an end; Kim and Mark get married on Friday and move to Waterloo. Nathan is going to Lethbridge, Jenn is leaving the ward. It was time.
Hopefully Kim, Mark and Nathan will carry on the tradition in their respective cities and we can make Sunday Dinners a Country-wide phenomenum.

I really love you all, hopefully I can find some way to fill the void you're leaving behind :)

New Aunt

I'm an Aunt again!

Baby Gage Lee West was born on Thursday August 3rd. He is 21 inches long and a whopping 9 lbs, his Dad was the same weight :)

I added some pictures so you can see just how cute he is.
