Our first trip to the US together

The last weekend in April my parents and Eddie and I are taking a trip into Maine to Bangor to hopefully buy material for the wedding. We will be staying at my Aunt and Uncle’s cottage in New Brunswick for 4 nights and will be making at least one day trip into the US.

Eddie and I are so excited. It is his first trip to the US. We went and got a passport for him the other day specifically for this trip. He’ll need it anyways for our honey moon. It’s soon going to be time to start planning the trip.

We are planning for the weekend to go to Jo-Ann Fabric in Bangor. We have the pattern’s already for the wedding dress and for the bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. I can’t wait to get started on them. [...]  READ MORE

Wow, where has the time gone!

I was looking at my site today and can’t believe it has been almost a year since I last blogged. So so much has gone on since then. For those of you who are not following me on Facebook or Instagram. I’m getting married! To a wonderful man named Edward Eddie for short.

We have been living together since mid-October 2015 and been together since the beginning of June 2015. He asked me to marry him on Christmas day. It wasn’t really a surprise as I knew it was coming but I am so happy. I couldn’t be any happier.

I am still working at the same place but I have moved to a permanent night shift working from 4pm to Midnight. I still enjoy it there. November 2016 will be 5 years! I don’t really miss days at all. [...]  READ MORE

Last weekend of freedom

I go back to work on Monday! I am doing a 6 week return to work program. I can’t believe it has been over 3 months. I start out on week one with 3 3-hour shifts (mon, wed, fri) and then the next week is 5 3-hour shifts, and so on until I am back to full-time. I am happy about that. EI just isn’t cutting it. We are so behind. I even sold $350 worth of gold jewelry this morning to try and catch up and it barely made a dent.

I have been so busy the last couple of weeks with doctors appointments, balance/physio appointments and work related stuff. I also cleaned our apartment from the top to bottom, only took two weeks lol. Well I really only cleaned 3 days out of the two weeks.

We also went camping twice. Once with my parents and some friends of theirs and the second time with Cory’s friend, his fiance and their baby boy. That was fun. I got to hold the baby a lot and even got to put him to bed one night. I want one! They are so cute and cuddly. Maybe soon. [...]  READ MORE
