Need photo props for a party? Make a scene with photo props at your party. I was looking to purchase some on Etsy and then came across some adorable props on ohhappyday.com. All I have to do is download the file and print! With my wedding costs adding up I was so excited when I found these to print. Yay!

Searching for a cute bridesmaid dress can be difficult. I found these dresses from Weddingdress.com where they have plenty of colors to choose from for each style.
Today me and two of my bridesmaids had an adventurous day shopping for bridesmaid dresses in New Orleans. Although we didn't find the right bridesmaid dress, we didn't leave completely empty handed considering we got a parking ticket and some memories to laugh about later down the road.

I've never been big on New Year's resolutions or looking into what the New Year will bring, but this year it's worth looking into and counting the blessings that it will bring. For the most part I have always known what there will be to come or so I feel like I have, but 2012 is a blank canvas waiting to be painted. In 2012 I am looking forward to getting married to the most incredible guy I know and moving to Alberta. I like to always know what is ahead and where my life is taking me. For a first time in a long time I have no clue where I will be working after I finish out this school year teaching or where me and Steven will find a home. Hmm... Will I wait tables, work in retail again, or will I even be able to find a job while waiting for my teaching application to process in Canada? Will we live in an apartment, condo, or a small house of our own? So much to think about... Either way it is going to be an amazing & exciting year because I will be married to my best friend and get to discover all of these things with him.
You know how when you're a little girl and you watch all those Disney movies believing that there is a Prince Charming some where out there just for you but as you get older you're like "Yeah right!". Well it's funny because I think back to Cinderella & think of Steven as my Prince Charming. I know it's silly but he is everyting I used to pray for in a guy when I was younger. It's quiet nice going to bed every night and him being the first & last thing I thank God for every night. Spending forever with Steven is what I look most forward to in 2012. I also look forward to exploring Canada. There seems like there is always something to do in the city. It will be a bitter sweet experience since I'll be SO far from my friends and family. I guess they will just have to visit me a lot and I am hoping the huge mall will persuade them to visit often. :) I will most certainly be counting my many blessings this year!

Just as I was hoping! I was reunited with La Poutine while enjoying my Christmas vacation. I sure did enjoy my Spaghetti style poutine while out in the city with my fiance. Mmmmm... It was delicious!
Check out all the different types of poutine you could enjoy yourself. I think I'll try pizza poutine next time :)

I received a full taste of Canadian hockey while visiting Edmonton this Christmas. Not only did I get to go to an Oilers game, I got to watch team Canada play against Czech Republic up close and personal at a World Junior Championship game. The packed rink was roaring with adoring fans and excitement for both games. I especially liked the smell of fresh Boston Pizza and the taste of draft beer while enjoying the game.
Things only got more exciting at the World Junior hockey game when we realized that the Prime Minister of Canada was seated on the next row over with his son cheering on the Canadians. Wow! What a great hockey experience for me!
