I think I have found my dress. It was the second dress I tried on and I feel pretty confident it is the one. I'm still going to keep the dress shopping date I have set with JM and the appointment I have in Michigan when I go to visit my sister but I'm pretty confident that this will be the one I go back for.

I'm not allowed to discuss further as Trent doesn't want to know anything about it.
Wow...its been a busy & very lucky few weeks of concerts for Trent and I here in Van. Last week we saw Loudon Wainwright III (father of Rufus and Martha) play at the Kay Meek Centre. Last night we were treated to Celine Dion (we were invited by my SVP) who put on a spectacular show at GM Place and now we have been invited to go see Neil Young play tomorrow night. Trent and I had talked about buying tickets as Neil is the one performer I really wanted to see before it was too late but we decided against it as it just wasn't the fiscally responsible thing to do at this time. To finish the week out we are going to see Matt Mays play Saturday night at the Commodore where we saw Iron and Wine play on my birthday.

Woo hoo! Sorry, can't contain my excitement yet.

Damn you Peter Griffin...the bird is not the word.

Trent says I have given up on blogging so here I am to prove its not true. I was just taking a break.

It's been a busy three months since Trent moved back.

We've done a lot of work on the apartment to find a way to fit in two people and lots of gear. Luckily Trent has a way with shelving.

Last Saturday we completed our marriage preparation course. As much as we joked about it, there really were some good topics. On the wedding front...we got a lot accomplished in NS on our trip there in August. The reception venue and church are all set, we met with the florist and even found our location for the photos..the Dingle. The next big thing on the list is the dress for which I'm heading to MI in November to do some shopping with my sister.

Last Sunday Trent and I headed up to Squamish and climbed The Chief. It was a beautiful day and the 1.5 hour climb to the top was worth every pained step I take now...the downward trek is a little rough on the legs.

Ok..that's all for now.
