Pete got home safe and sound yesterday morning, seems like a long time ago since he was here but it was only like 2 days ago! Anyway, I'm back on the weight loss track, so if your interested read my wellness journal which should be linked over there ------>

Not too much else to talk about, saving up to book my ticket to England for late July - late August. Need to be back at college on August 31st so pushing it a bit close but oh well. Will keep this updated with any info!

Long time no post...been pretty busy here.

Pete leaves on Monday so we're going to spend the last few days just hanging out :) I'll miss him a lot but I should be there in August so we'll only be apart for 2 months yay!

I started my internship at a local tourism bureau, I'll be helping out the Communications and Internet departments :) Did three half days this week and its been nice so I think I'll enjoy it.

Have some more news too, we've been busy doing church stuff for the wedding: went to our focus group meetings and went to the all day Pre-Caana conference thing. So yesterday went to see if we could book a date with the church. Unfortunately the nun in charge was gone for the day so we ended up going to the reception venue and seeing what they had open :)
And guess what...we booked the venue for June 10, 2006 and paid the deposit!!!!!!!! So I hope this date is good with my bridemaid, going to email them soon, if not LET ME KNOW people hehe. This is the venue by the way: Riverside Pavillion

Pete's been here a week today, the time is going by fairly slow so that's good :) My birthday is on Monday, so still some time to buy your last minute presents hehe. We've been busy babysitting my niece and nephew and cleaning the house, my mom has been redecorating so its been interesting. We went shopping for my birthday and Pete bought me a lovely jewelry box. He also got me a travel jewelry box, that you can see here. But I have to wait for my other presents hehe. I guess that's about it for now. We bought "Closer" on dvd, really interesting movie, not for the those with faint ears though. Anyway best be off for now, will update again soon :)
