Bridal Gala!!

Bridal Gala!

Today the Lethbridge Lodge hosted the Bridal Gala.  The dresses were all supplied from Bells and Bows!  (thanks ang!)

I was asked to model a few dresses for this show!!  It was sooo much fun!!  This red dress was one of the social dresses that I got to wear!!  

This dress was one of the brides maids dresses. I actually got to walk down a runway wearing this dress!!

This dress is another social dress, and probably my favourite one that I got to wear all day!!  

I had my hair and my make-up done for me.  I truly felt like a princess!!!

Hola Everyone!!

I have started taking a Spanish class!!  This class runs every Tuesday night from 7pm-9pm.  The first class was very easy for me, as it was going over the basic words in Spanish that I know already!  I am excited to learn more Spanish and hopefully be able to speak it and understand it more!!

The snow has melted here and the wind is just a blowin!!  Its making my house moan and groan!!  But I prefer this wind to the cold (-47c) any day!!

This Sunday, I am helping out with the Bridal Gala at the Lethbridge Lodge.  I have some pretty sweet dresses that I get to wear for it!  Once the event happens, I will try to get some pictures to post for you all to see what I got to wear!!

Tooo Cold!!!!

Well, the summer like weather has finally come to an end :(  I miss it very much!  These past few days it has been -26 with a windchill of -47...brrrrr!!!!!  On Tuesday my car did not want to start.... what an awful way to start my day out at 630am.  I had to take a taxi to work, and they sure are not cheap!!  When I got home in the afternoon, I called my dad to see if he could come and help me.  I learned that my little sisters car had also broken down. Dad came over, and we discovered that my cars battery is not so healthy.  We got my car started, and dad lent me this machine that will jump my car if I need it to.  After warming my car up for nearly an hour last night, I plugged it in and prayed that it would start this morning.  And it did!!!!  Now I am on the hunt to get a new battery!!

A few weeks ago (Jan 10) I got 2 exciting packages in the mail!  The first package I got was my Christmas present from the BRAT family!  My new chi straightener finally came in!!!  And I love it!!  Its soo much better than my last straightener.  I worked that afternoon, and when I got home, there was another package waiting for me.  When I opened it, it was a pair of NEW SHOES!!!!  I have a staff party on Jan 22, and I ordered this fabulous pair of new shoes for the party!!  I am in love with them, and I can't wait to wear them out!! 

I also have registered for a Spanish class.  It will be every Tuesday at the local college here in town, and I am so exicted for it!  To be able to speak the language again, will be wonderful.  I know a few words from being in Mexico for 2 weeks in 2010, but have lost a lot of it, due to the fact that I don't speak it every day.  And since my best friend in Guadalajara is getting married in December 2012, I would like to know what the minister is saying!!  I will keep you all updated with new words and phrases that I have learned that week!!
