Alberta bound!

My favourite!

Well, I did it.  I have completed the worst semester of my life!  I'm never doing that sort of thing again.  I'm too wussy/complainy.  And you know what makes being done even better?  Tomorrow morning the White fam is heading up to my homeland! We got married, oh, 9ish months ago and we're finally doing the Canada reception/visit.  I haven't been home in about 10 months, so I'm stoked.  PS, anyone reading this who will be in the area is welcome to come to the reception on Friday! Just let me know and I'll send you the details.

For the reception we're going for a vintage theme. I've seen a ton of weddings on websites that have done this theme, and it seems like it cost them an arm and a leg. Well, my family just so happens to own a ton of really awesome vintage (old?) things, rock at baking, and are very resourceful with putting everything together. My mom and sister just made some awesome  looking vintage cake stands and tiered platters, my grandma has some fabulous old hat boxes, typewriter, and trunks, and I have figured out how to make monogrammed shortbread cookies.  I also can't wait to see and visit with everyone! Annnd it will be the first time most of the White family has been to Canada.  I'm hoping that the weather isn't totally awful so that they'll want to come back sometime.  It will be a short trip, but we're definitely going to cram Waterton in there.  It's too bad that it's not hiking season yet, but it'll still be fun!
Anyway, I still have a ton to do, so I'm off to clean, pack, make last minute scrapbook pages, all that jazz.
This song only makes me cry a little.
