It's a nice day for a white wedding

My cousin Ross got married a few weeks ago in Alabama. They had a second reception in Windsor for the folks that couldn't fly down.

It was also great because it was a chance for the family to get together for a reunion.- we haven't all been together like that for a few years. (Although not everyone was able to make it).

It was also awesome to be able to hang out for a few days- not just one afternoon or evening. We went shopping in Detroit to an outlet mall (LOVED IT!!), made omelets (that's a story on it's own), hung out in the sun, played some rumoli and went swimming in a few pools. It was a great, great weekend.
This is us making omelettes...that we boiled in plastic bags...

The whole Mitton clan!

The Mitton cousins.

This is us on the last day hanging out in Uncle Ross's backyard.

This is me and my Mom playing my favourite game - Rumikube.

Susan and Tobin and Vancouver and Starbucks Together at Last

I know I know I know!! I haven't written!!!! I'm remiss in my writing!!!! I've just been busy. Things are happening. Things are going on. There's things going on and happening. I can't talk about them right now... but soon.

In the meantime I will post a few pictures from the wedding I just attended. It was last weekend in I mean Vancouver. I'm just waiting for them to officially change the name. Welcome to Starbucks. With a subhead that reads: the most boring city in all of Canada where we must ply you with caffeine on every corner so that you can actually stay awake. Seriously.

I actually bought a 750page book and READ THE WHOLE THING while I was there- in 4 days. And I hated the book. My boyfriends would be saying to me, "Sarah you haven't stopped complaining about that book- you hate it. Yet you're plowing through it... what gives?" To which I would respond "Well guys I hate this city more. It's a hierarchy of hate. And I'm reading the book to get through my time in this city. It enables me to forget where I am." (ps. the book was "Breaking Dawn" - tres horrible)

However I'm glad I went- because although Van doesn't have a lot to offer- I had a great great time with many dear friends (some of whom I haven't seen in a really long time)- and attended a freakin' beautiful wedding. And got to take an impromptu visit up to Pemberton to meet my friend's daughter (who was beautiful). And yes BC is quite stunning with the mountains and the lakes and the blue sky etc...

All in all a great way to spend the long weekend. Stay tuned for more news coming soon...

This is me and the boys the night of the rehearsal dinner. We were all quite proud of how good we looked and did a lot of posing. More posing in fact than the bride and groom.

This is at the reception with the bride (Susan) and groom (Tobin). As well- in the blue (a bridesmaid) is my good friend Laura. She flew out from Sydney for the wedding- amazing. (you can click on the pics to get a closer look). we are posing again- this time at the reception with all of the other guests wearing pink.

Lucky single girls.

Ok- here is the FUNNIEST thing I've heard in a looooong time.

The back story on this is that a girl named Olga was out with her friends in Toronto, and she talked to this guy named Dmitri for all of two minutes. Then she gave him her card and said 'give me a call.'

I stole this story off of someone else's blog... but it's too funny not to share. This is what we, as single women, have waiting for us. Kill me now.
