I have a few pictures from my weekend - I'm not posting pictures of other people though so they're limited but to show you my dress and my pretty hair here we are.
First, this is just me hanging out. The wedding was in Northern Alberta and we got some snow the night we got there and more the day of the wedding. I took a walk one day and just enjoyed the fresh air. I even climbed a fence and ran to the top of the hill in the middle of the fields. It was glorious.This is the gift Sinead - the bride - gave us bridesmaids. It is called a claddagh ring. Sinead is Irish so this ring has alot of meaning. The Irish use claddagh rings as a symbol of friendship or sometimes as a wedding ring. There are three elements to the ring - the hands represent friendship, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty. The ring that we received also has an Irish design on the sides.
The cool thing about this ring is that depending on the way you wear it, it shows your romantic availability. So if you wear the ring with the heart facing outwards, it means you are "open to love" - you're single. And if you wear it with the heart facing towards you, it means that someone has "captured your heart" and you are taken.
Its a perfect present and I love it so much. This picture is of the ring on top of the wedding invitation.
The rest of these pictures are just me being silly and having a photo shoot. It was a great wedding and we got to hang out with and meet both families who were wonderful and so nice. And the groomsmen were really fun to hang out with too. It was a bit of a cold day for pictures but I think we got some nice ones. Maybe when I get those I'll post some up. So this is just a little taste. Oh and I got my hair done which was fun. I didn't end up really liking the back but that doesn't really matter. And the dresses were made by the mother of the bride which is amazing!! It looks like there's a bow there but there's not. And the bouquets were white roses with greenery and little green "coffee beans."
Funny stories from today -
1. Waking up - I have my alarm across the room from my bed so I got up to turn it off and was so tired and disoriented that as I turned around to go put on my glasses I actually fell! To the ground! And there just happened to be a balloon on the ground which I popped while falling! It made this huge crash and I just sat there stunned and started laughing.
2. A guy in my class was selling a karaoke mike for his selling presentation today. So in our break between classes we decided to sing karaoke. It was hilarious. And so I decided to get up and do my classic - Thriller by Michael Jackson. haha it was fun, but apparently I might be on youtube pretty soon... yikes! By the way check out this version of Thriller - its 1,500 plus CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines dancing to Thriller! haha
Right now, I'm working on creating a sales presentation. I'm selling a High Interest Savings Account from Canadian Tire. If you're Canadian and you like earning money for doing nothing, you should check it out. (My actualy sales presentation is a bit longer/better than this.)
Also, I just realized that many of my links were not working. Bummer. If you were having problems with those it is fixed now and it shouldn't be a problem anymore.
Ps, the type of tea I'm loving right now is Tetley's Ginger Mint.
The Conspiracy Theory! A movie that I can't believe I've never seen with Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts. I loved it! You should definitely check it out if you haven't seen it. Its funny, romantic, suspenseful - everything a good movie should be!
Here are a couple more things I want (one a little more realistic than the other.)
First, these gorgeous shoes from sotto boutique. Check out their cute blog.
And this cute fur hat from Joe
The movie was quite entertaining actually, because it was hosted by none other than Christopher Plummer. He, in his typical overdramatic style talked about how this first McDonald's opened "like a beacon." And that McDonald's was the "icon of western capitalism." It was very amusing.
Anyway, I'm going to bed super early because I'm not feeling well but I just wanted to post this pic of a girl many of you know from Gossip Girl (which I'm not ashamed to admit, I really enjoy), but I'm wondering if any of you recognize her from another movie? Filmed when she was just a wee one?
I also really enjoy making these compilations - its fun.

Also, there's this necklace I found through Cool Hunting - from Furni's. I like the black one. These would make great gifts.
We decided to keep our black kitty inside today, just to make sure no one got hurt :)
here's a picture I really like from Altamira NYC. I got a blazer a little while ago from Value Village and am liking putting it together with various outfits.
So... I have exciting news. My beautiful Irish friend Sinead, .... asked me to be a bridesmaid for her!!! I was soo excited to say yes. :) yay!! I'll tell more tomorrow I need to get to bed.
Duckie - our crazy, psychotic cat :)
I had a really good day today. Got all my midterm exam marks back and I did really well! So I'm super excited about that. And.... I got a really positive lead on an internship for next summer so I'm really excited about that too.
