March Updates

I’m glad to report that spring is imminently (and finally) around the corner in Regina! We survived a horrible polar vortex redux where the temperatures got down to -52. Now, the weather report is looking milder by the day and the snow has started to recede. We are both looking forward to seeing our families … Continue reading »

Hello, 2014!

Happy belated New Year! I believe the polar vortex is over and my fingers have thawed long enough to type up this blog post. Jordan had a much-needed, relaxed Christmas in Grande Prairie with his family.  The three-week holiday was his “between-degree break.” With his undergraduate exams all finished and the University is closed, Jordan … Continue reading »

Christmas Break

Right now Sam and I are inside for the day, hiding from the -45 windchill outside. Classes are all done and I’m just waiting for exams to start. Then it’s off to Alberta for Christmas with my family, and BC for New Years with Sam’s! If everything goes smoothly with my exams, I will be … Continue reading »

Convocation, Family Visits, and Holidays

What a busy couple weeks it’s been! My Master’s convocation was on October 19th and my family came to visit for the weekend. Battling through fog and snow, delays and cancellations, jumping on boats and flying all through the night, my parents and Grandpa managed to make it to Regina in time. What fun it … Continue reading »

Fall Stuff!

It’s been a pretty busy week for us, as we’ve been trying to tackle small jobs for our big visit in between all of the usual school junk. We’ve spent all weekend trying to clean all of the Marilyn hair out of every crevasse in the house. Sam’s parents and grandparents are coming to visit … Continue reading »

Pumpkin spice and everything nice

We are so very sad she has gone home to Ontario but it sounds like life is as perfect as it could be over there, and … Continue reading »

So Many Weddings!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already mid-August. This summer has gone so quickly. We’ve been trying to keep the blog going, but we’ve managed to keep ourselves busy with other things! I thought I’d give a quick summary of our summer: Marilyn turns 6! August 4th marked the one-year anniversary of our kitty cat … Continue reading »

Montreal adventures

Early in the morning (very, very early in the morning) Jordan and I arose to catch the train to Montreal. Our friend Sophie had suggested taking the train there and I’m glad we did – what a comfortable way to get around! It was sad to say au revoir to Quebec City but we were … Continue reading »

Bonjour, Quebec!

Bienvenue! This month we are on a two-week vacation in Quebec. On Monday, after dropping a very unimpressed Marilyn off at the kennel, we boarded a plane for Quebec City. Soon after, we arrived at the bed and breakfast where we would spend an amazing six days. It’s called the Chateau des Tourelles, located just … Continue reading »

Among the whisperings, the champagne, and the stars

Of all the times I’ve made my friends and family treat me like a princess (and they are so obliging), my birthday this year definitely takes the cake. May 24 was my Champagne Birthday (wherein I turned 24 on the 24th), and I couldn’t possibly pass up the opportunity to indulge! I kicked off the … Continue reading »
