Writing papers in the dreary Vancouver rain

I am in serious need of some sunshine (and WARMTH!) and I think Neil feels the same way. Last week he sent me an article about vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin) and I am feeling severely deficient right about now! I'm stuck inside writing papers all week although I'm not too bothered as its pretty dreary outside. I'm down to my last week and a half of classes and work and I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to buckle down and get everything wrapped up but I am the worst procrastinator known to man. I'm also finding it difficult to focus because the wedding seems to be coming up so quick! Just over three months to go and I have a lot to accomplish still. I want to shift into Bridezilla mode but I know I have more to do before I can let all things wedding take over my life for a couple months. You only do it once though so you might as well, right? ;)

Last week was my birthday (and Neil's!) and I went out for sushi with friends and my brother who was in town for his spring break. We all had a great time and the food was delish!

They even brought me a free deep fried Mars bar sundae AND they accidentally put in two orders so we got both free :) yay!

3 More Weeks of Classes!!

I am down to my last 3 (2.5 really) weeks of classes and I really can't believe I am so close to being done with school and moving to England! It feels like the term just began and I don't know where the time went! My brother and his friends are coming up tomorrow which is also Neil's birthday. Mine is the day after that and I'm hoping to get a bunch of friends out for sushi and drinks :)

Happy Birthday Honey!!

Alone again :(

Neil is back in England and I'm feeling a bit low. He made it back safe and sound, but exhausted and I've been battling the blues since then. I just feel a bit down and lonely. It's amazing what a difference a hug after a long day makes. I didn't enjoy coming back to an empty house last night. The weather isn't helping my mood much either, it's been pouring rain for days and it's not supposed to let up any time soon. I'm down to my last six weeks in Vancouver and frankly they can't come soon enough! I am in dire need of some sunshine!!
Enjoying the only truly sunny day while Neil was here...

We're down to only FOUR MONTHS (122 days) until the wedding!! I can hardly believe that in only four short months I will be walking down the aisle!! It's going so quickly and I still have so much to do! I still need to:
- Finalize and file the application for my fiancee visa
- Find shoes, a veil and other accessories
- Find accessories and such for the bridesmaids
- Order invitations (!!)
- Finalize the (cup)cake order
- Figure out what I'm doing for flowers/book a florist
- Book hair (and makeup?) appointments
- Order favors
- And so on and so on...
I can't wait to finish school, relax a bit and get down to serious planning :)

One More Week with Neil <3

Neil has been here one week already! He's only got one more week here and I can't believe how quick the time is passing! I've been a bit absent with my posting as we've been quite busy. Neil had a good flight to Vancouver and we had a couple nice days here before jetting off to Portland to see my parents and grandparents. On our first night there we had a really wonderful romantic dinner at Portland City Grill and a nice time catching up with my family. Unfortunately both of us have felt a bit under the weather the past few days so we've been taking it relatively easy. We tried the new Point Grey Browns restaurant on Monday and then Neil met up with his best man for drinks. Tomorrow we're hoping to go out downtown for some lunch and birthday shopping for the both of us :) AND Bahar and Ed arrive on Saturday and I can't wait!
Out for a Mexican dinner with my parents on Saturday night.

Neil is on his way!!

According to the plan, my fiance will be at the airport now getting ready for his flight to Amsterdam, from where he'll take his flight to Vancouver and into my arms :) I'm so excited!! For the past three days I have done nothing but clean, do laundry and grocery shop for his arrival. Tomorrow I have a class in the morning, a bit of last minute straightening up to do and some surprise brownies to bake before heading to the airport. Although I've been counting down to his arrival for the past two months, the last 24 hours always feel the longest, I just want him to get here already!
