getting the house ready

Things are coming together and we should be in the house within the next few weeks I'm happy to announce! I've been searching for some things, like furniture, I have zero furniture really. I'm trying to collect up some old used pieces. Wicker Emporium has some very beautiful furniture on sale, I hope to get a piece or two! I checked out this website that has the best prices for refrigerators. I have one like one from the page which is nice. My kitchen is pretty much set I just need a countertop for my new cupboards (which is expensive) and a nice set of knives. :) Other than that I'm okay for that I think. Leah's wedding tomorrow :)

Come For a Party...

I'm so happy that I have the support of the Petite Rivere Winery. They are helping me host a benefit event party to raise money for the well for the women's farm. I'm so happy to annouce that this poster has been made and I'm distributing it within the next few days. There will be some great music with local and Canadian talent from B.C, food, and lots of great company! I hope everyone who reads this who is from the South Shore tries to attend!

and a wedding we will go :)

I'm going to a wedding on Saturday about a 4 - 5 hour drive away from where I live. I'm looking forward to this little road trip, not the cost of driving there but getting away for the night will be nice! I'm not sure exactly where I'm going but I think it will be okay. I don't have a gps, I never really needed one, but one would come in handy sometimes. I saw this garmin gps for golfing in particular. Looked interested. Not for the golf part, but GPS's all together are pretty rad. I'm excited about wearing a dress! haha. Funny I know. I'm not too concern about looking crazy amazing but it will be nice to play dress up. I don't know how it will all work out driving there and getting ready but we will manage!

feeling ugh

I'm feeling really frustrated right about now. I feel completely... okay... not completely but really unsupported by the people who I would thought support me with my Kenya project. I know that people are busy, but I really feel what I'm asking is not unreasonable. If my friends were really my true friends... wouldn't they want to help me? It's not even helping me... it's helping those women to help themselves! It makes me feel really sad and lonely. It's funny because it's people who I wouldn't have ever thought to support me, are, which makes me almost want to cry and feel love to those new kindred spirits in my life but I feel sad for everyone else.

eloping is fun

I do not regret eloping. I look back and think about and it was fun, adventurous, cheaper than a traditional wedding, exciting, I could go on and on. I love my wedding ring and wear it everyday. I found these sweet stainless steel rings and I love the simplisity of them. If something ever happens to my wedding ring and can't get it replaced (since it's handmade and the people could stop making them) I would probably get a stainless steel one. I was talking with a coworker today about eloping and she said she would consider doing that since she doesn't like to be the centre of attention, and I agreed that's one reason why I eloped. :)

time will come

Last night was fun, I went to the city and spent time with friends, new and old at my friend's stagette party. The best part was the Korean grill. They changed their menu all around which isn't cool but it was still a fun experience. This weekend we are going to PEI to visit my family, grandmother, aunt, 15 month old cousin, I'm very excited!~ I haven't seen them for many months so I'm stoked to see them! I've got some plans up my sleeve about fundraising for my Kenya farm project which will all be revealed soon!
