I forgot

I forgot to tell you about my dress fitting! It went really really well. I didn't need anything done to it other than the bustle. But the bustle is gorgeous!! I almost like it better when it is bustled. It is so free. There is only one problem... Since going on the pill, lets just say my cup "runneth over"... There is a bit of an issue with "muffin tops". So, the diet starts today! The goal is 5 pounds.. and all from under my shirt.... We'll see how well that goes.

Boys are dirty

So much to do, so little time. So I'm here at Travis' apartment. I have come to the conclusion that boys are just plain gross. haha. So Travis told me that he had cleaned up for me to come, but when I came, it was a complete mess! So when Travis was at work yesterday, I mopped the floors, vaccuumed, and cleaned up all the garbage and dirt. I'm going to be such a good wifey! haha So there, mom, I DO know how to clean! Other than the cleanliness, this trip has been really good. It's so nice to play house with Travis and Toby. It's wierd to be with Travis again, but a really good wierd. I'm so glad this year is over. Only 6 weeks until the wedding! Thats crazy!!

So I was looking for a picture to put on, and since I'm on Trav's computer, there is so much to choose from! This is from 2 years ago, and it makes me miss my bangs.

Hooray for being done!

All done!!

So this is just to let you all know that two of my many countdowns are officially over!!! I am completely done school!! I never have to walk into a classroom again in my life if I don't want to! AAANNDDD.. I go to Fort McMurray tomorrow and I never have to leave him again!! t's kinda wierd because it doesn't feel like either of these are over, even though I've been counting down for a year. I feel like I am going to class tomorrow, like normal. I do not want to drive 10 hours tomorrow!! Silly Travis... why did you have to move so far away?

I have my first dressfitting tomorrow! One more thing to cross off of my overdue list. YAY! Then we have to find Travis a ball and chain.. I mean ring! and a billion other things. At least I dont have to worry about projects or school anymore!! Thats all I got for tonight, folks. I'm sure Travis won't be packing his computer until the very last second so I should be able to update you on the condition of his apartment and how the treacherous drive went.

First Shower and First Place!

So lets start from the most recent of events.. Today we had our interior design showcase, in which we show our final projects from this year (spa and office), and industry professionals are invited to come and see our work. Not many professionals showed up (we sat around and talked the whole time, it was pretty quiet), so it was kind of a bust in that sense. But we were judged on our work, and guess what... I GOT FIRST PLACE for my office!! yay! I was totally not expecting that, but I am very pleased (of course!) So I got a nice frame for my diploma, and a certificate for winning! And I can put that on my resumee! It was kind of a sad day, because I won't see one of my best friends from the program (Lisa) again until the wedding! And I will only see the other girls briefly next monday and tuesday.. I'll really miss them all. Especially Lisa and Carolyn. The first picture is of most of the girls, and the second is of me with my winning project!

I haven't really blogged about it, but a couple weeks ago my Auntie Marg threw me my first wedding shower! She did an amazing job, she had tasty treats there, and we played fun games. Lots of my mom's sisters came out, and some of my friends. It was an amazing first shower. Thanks guys! Below is my maid of honour, Tiff and I... She's such a sweetie.

It's been a while...

So it's been a while since I have blogged.. Sorry. I have been really busy with final projects and stuff. But good news! I am fully done in exactly a week! I am done my retail project, half done my office, and fully done my Viz rendering. Take a look! This took me all semester, so you had better be impressed! And I had to stay up almost all night last night supervising the computer rendering on this.. it took 11 hours!

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Photo Sharing
So I have a lot to look forward to, and a lot coming up! This friday is the interior design showcase where we will have all our projects on display at the school for industry people and family and friends to have a look at our work. Next Tuesday I have my last test, and Wednesday I have my first dress fitting in Calgary, and I'm off to Fort McSucky which won't be so sucky anymore... Because I get to take Travis home with me.. FOREVER!! Then showers and a wedding not so long after that!! Only 52 more days!

Gord and Courtney Sittin' in a Tree...

First comes love, then comes MARRIAGE!!

As promised, here are the pictures from Gord & Courtney Janzen's wedding. It was absolutely beautiful!! We had a great time. Mom got me a new dress for the occasion and everything! Can't wait another 67 days until our big day. I just hope it will be as enjoyable as theirs was.

I love the look on their faces in this last picture. Gord had just raised his right leg.. not like a dog peeing, but like a giddy little girl.. to make a joke. I missed that shot because of the slow camera, but the looks on their faces are so typical of Gord and Courtney. He's goofing off, making her laugh.

Now With 50% More Becky!

So it seems I blog the most when I have exceptionally big deadlines coming up. I guess I work so hard I really need these breaks. I was just on a website that gives you slogans (hence my name), and it is hilarious! You should go, its really fun. Here are some of the highlights:
  • Only Travis Can Prevent Forest Fires.
  • You'll Wonder Where the Yellow Went, When You Brush Your Teeth with Becky.
  • Men Can't Help Acting On Travis.
  • Break Me Off a Piece of That Travis.
  • We Don't Make Nikita. We Make Nikita Better.

Well that was fun. I needed some mind-numbing entertainment.

You know what's really fun? Getting RSVP's! And replying to them. I check for them almost obsessively, at least 3 times a day. about 1/5 have done so already. Fun fun! I can't wait for school to be done so I can actually catch up on all this planning!

It's pretty quiet over here. Mom AND Dad are now in Summerland, and I am left here with Nikita. It does really help to at least have something in the house that moves and breathes and is just so darn cute! Anyway, its really 12:15, not 11:15, because of the time change, so I better go.

Bridge That Gap with Nikita.
