I can't believe it! 4 more sleeps and then Wilson and I are on our way to the lovely island of St. Maarten. 12 more sleeps and I am officially Wilson's wife. I CAN'T WAIT FOR BOTH!!!

Had a lovely weekend -- Wilson had his stag party on Saturday. Apparently a good time was had by all and Wilson drank FAR TOO MUCH! Woke up still drunk on Sunday and then Mr. Hangover came for a visit and stayed overstayed on his visit in the afternoon. Needless to say, I took very good care of him as he does the same when I am in the same condition.

The Sorority had pedis (well Mellie was a poo-head and only had a mani) on Sunday. Always good to spend time with my girls! I have pretty toes to go on vacation with and that is all that matters.

I cannot wait to have some sun on this pale Canadian body and - oh yeah - to marry this wonderful man of mine.

Wilson and I have debted about what is more important to have - intelligence or common sense. This was sent to me by my friend Cari and I loved it.
  1. Don't worry about what people think; they don't do it very often.
  2. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
  3. It ain't the jeans that make your butt look fat.
  4. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
  5. For every action, there is an equal and opposite government program.
  6. If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
  7. Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of cheques.
  8. A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.
  9. Eat well, stay fit, die anyway.
  10. Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.
  11. No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes.
  12. Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist is reversed.
  13. Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.
  14. Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeksbefore you need it.
  15. Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you do the same thing again.
  16. By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.
  17. Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.
  18. Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.
  19. If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never triedbefore.
  20. And never, EVER take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the samenight.
Have a good week!

Fall is one of my favourite times of year - the crispness in the air, the colour of the leaves, a good fire in the fireplace, football (Go Broncos!) and of course fall fashions.
Fall also means that Wilson and I travel for work a lot more but that is now coming to an end for both of us as the year winds down. While walking Maggie recently, I have been trying to remember to take my camera with me so that I can take some pictures of the beautiful leaves in our neighbourhood.
I know that winter is around the corner with all of its own kind of yuckyness (it is so a word) but this time of year has always been special to me.

Anyway, here are some fall foliage pictures that I took recently. I hope autumn brings you as much joy as it does me.

Our Japanese maple tree
I know that is a smidge blurry but I loved the colours

It is surprisingly hard to photograph leaves cuz they keep on moving
