It's actually difficult to get on here after being gone for a bit. Where do you start back up? Do people even want me to post?

I guess what it all comes down to is...I don't care :D It's my bloggy and I'll do what I want to!

Alright, so I went up to Lethbridge and there were a few things I wanted to share from there. One I'll share in it's own post (for ease of putting up pictures). SO! (Oh my stomach just gurgled...breaky time! I brought a yogurt and berry bowl - delish~!). Back to Lethbridge. I was down there for a few days. Visited some family, got wedding invitations out (thank goodness), and got some help from my aunt on my wedding dress (oh and ran a few errands).
Anyways, I've needed to go down there for a bit...so it was nice to get that taken care of. Though I, unfortunately, didn't get to see W this time around as she was busy with work. Next time!

Other than that...still getting wedding planning done (PS. that's happening in like a month and a half hey *.*). And still looking for apartments! We decided (I think?) that it may be a little too difficult, time wise, to buy a house this year. So I've been searching and setting up appointments and seeing a lot of rental properties. Needlesstosay, we've basically run out of time for finding something (decent) for the beginning of June and are more looking for the beginning of July.
Problem with that? Well... my lease is up in the next couple days here at my present apartment. So measures needed to be taken; 80% of my stuff is now in a storage locker (waiting patiently to be moved into a home). The rest of my stuff (food) will need to go to someones home. Other than that, it's basically just my mattress and clothing which I will be taking out to Strathmore for a month to live with my sister and her family!
So I'm Strathmore bound tomorrow night! The rest of my time has been taken up, for the most part, by cleaning the apartment for moving out. It looks so empty and clean. I'll miss it in some ways.

The last thing I'm going to say about myself...I did one of the 'Insanity' workouts (by Beachbody) this morning. Have you done them? There's no other way of putting it...they're INSANE. I did the 'Plyometric Cardio Circuit', and I was dying....sweating, panting, collapsing, dying. Dying. It was difficult. But I was so proud of myself in the end :D Go me!

Other things worthy of mention, wouldn't be in regards to me...
1. Scott is coming home tonight! He's been gone for 2 weeks and goodness it'll be good to see him again...
2. Francesca and Benifred get married this Friday... AH! That's also INSANE. But exciting :) Congratulations.

So the summary of this post? Things are going pretty alright...they're moving forward and life is still good.

Hope all is well with you :)
Anything new? What did I miss?

Toodles for meow :)!
(now to my yogurt and berries...)

I still don't feel like posting today. So all I'm saying this time is...I'm grateful for family. 

Not many people will do what your family does for you. And they (usually) stand by you, no matter what.

Love you all.

Bye for meow :)!

This is just a post to let you know I won't be putting up a "real" post today. 

It was May Long Weekend...I visited family down in the bridge.

I have a couple things I could talk about, but am just not feeling it today. Soon enough pretties. Soon enough.

How was your Long Weekend?

Bye for meow :)!

Guilty pleasures...

TV show style.

You know what I'm talking about...you can't miss them, you feel ridiculous for watching them, but yet...you can't resist. I used to watch a LOT of TV shows. (Heck, when I was younger I'd even watch the soap Days of Our Lives with my mother). I'd watch Gossip Girl, 90210, So You Think You Can Dance (and Canada Edition), American Idol, Canadian Idol, Americas Got Talent, Britains Got Talent, Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, America's Next Top Model, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Cougar Town, CSI's, Glee and so on. 
There are SO many shows out there. And I believe it's possible to become attached/involved in a show VERY easily. They want to hook you in, and that's what they try to do...and they're good at it! TV is easy...it generally doesn't require a lot of thought, we can relate to some of the "characters", and you get caught up in the drama and want to see what happens next!
How does a person stay caught up on all of them? It's impossible! You eventually just stop watching things but you generally stick to your absolute fave's! (And then just watch an occasional episode of something here and there). 

Want to know what I've stayed caught up on? Well too bad, I'm going to tell you anyways. ;)
I, Trudy, am presently watching...
America's Next Top Model (it's ridiculous, but oddly addicting...those girls amuse me)
-- it all began about 2 years ago according to this
90210 (I'm sure I could stop with this one...but I want to see what happens next!)
Grey's Anatomy (funny thing is I haven't even watched this from the beginning...)

I ideally like to see every episode of all these...and it's not all that hard to do. 
I still really enjoy some of the other TV shows (especially funny ones), but they're easy enough to see occasional episodes or just wait until the end of season to watch them all when convenient for you.

What TV shows do you fit into your schedule? Have you had to drop some? Any you couldn't imagine dropping?

Let me know!

Over and out.

Bye for meow :)!

Busy little bird

Still busy with wedding business. But invitations are done! :D :D :D HOORAY! At least people will be there even if things don't work and are terrible. Yes...that sounds awesome. 
Just kidding, it will be fine. It will be... ._.

So Scott is now gone off to work :( 2 weeks. Which makes Trudy a dull girl. But really, I'm ok. But I do miss him.

So yesterday was soccer! And it was a really warm (and surprisingly humid) day. And it's nice and sunny again today! (though it is supposed to rain for the rest of the week) :( Back to soccer.... well we tied. 5-5. We were about to win with the 5-4 but in the last 2 minutes...of course they scored. But, to be honest, it was a beautiful shot. The ground was SUPER hard though. I could feel the impact through my shins (and soul). 

Annnnnndddddd ya. That's about it actually. It's too hot in my apartment though...how's a Trudy to sleep with a hot room and hot covers and birds chirping before 5 am?! Stupid birds...

Ta ta for meow :)!

Fish are creepy...

Really. Do you ever go to Petland (I go a lot...) and check out the few random puppies, occasional kittens, and strange ferret? Maybe go torture the little gerbils(?) a little bit? And then you meander over to the fish. 
Fishies creep me out. They're squirming around with their bulging eyes and sometimes have strange things protruding off of them. 
I even tried moving my finger around with the fish and having them follow(which is amusing I must say...) but that amusement only lasts so long as their protruding eyes peer into your soul. 
Why would people have fish as a "pet"? You can't even pet them! Sure they're low maintenance, but they aren't cute - at all.
Isn't the point of a pet to have something cute and fluffy? Keep you company as they curl up?
Fish DO NOT do that. They make me want to curl up alone and never look at them again.

The little pixelated fish at the top won't do any soul peering. And sure a little animated Nemo is alright...but other than that, no fish for me.
No fish for me.

Byeas for meow :)!

Happy Mother's Day!

Just a shout out to my mother for putting up with me all these years ;) love you!
To my future mother-in-law for all her help and support and for raising a nice little Scotty!
To all the women in my life (including friends and sisters) for helping become who I am today.

Love you all!

Who wears it better??


I'm leaning more towards Thorgi as well...

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Ok, ok....

I'm here. I've just been busy! Why don't people elope? More importantly, why aren't Scott and I eloping???
Just kidding (kind of...)

Anywho. So weekend. We registered at Bed Bath and Beyond (on an empty stomach...which was even MORE torturous) but it's done, so YAY~! And then we went to The Keg - double yay :D!

We've been trying to get the invitation designed (I'm going to drive Scott crazy, I'm sure...) and we got our second set of engagement photos done. So, whether it seems like it or not, things are slowly getting done.

Yesterday we had some delightful sun and also a soccer game! And we won! YAY! The only not so swell thing...there were no girl subs! So the three girls that were there (including myself and Francesca) had to play the whooolllleee time. But it was fun :)

Still trying to get things done. But it's coming along. 

Anything new out there?
Sorry I didn't have more excitement to share...

Toodles for meow :)!

You know what I think?

I think...I like Friday's - a lot...along with this song. You know why? 'Cause it's like that, and that's the way it is........HUH' ;)

Watermelon is pretty good as well...so sweet, so juicy, so delicious.
Oh! And pineapple.
And the sun (as it's out today!)

You know what I don't like?
Planning weddings....

If I make it through this...it will make me a very happy and more relaxed Trudy...

Just keep swimming.

Chill out for meow :)?

Pictures from the weekend!

As promised!
Any thoughts? Don't care?

Too bad!

Ta ta for meow :)!

Did I see the sunrise today? No... though it is pretty cloudy, so I'm not sure anyone around here did.

But I did randomly get this song stuck in my head today.
I can almost envision a sunrise...almost.

So it's been pretty rainy/miserable here this past week...but I know (hope...really really hope) that the sun will be back soon enough.

Sunglasses and all...


So I've been gone for a few daysies. Because I hadn't been getting any love from all y'all ;'(
Just kidding.
This weekend Scott and I got a few weddingish things done... YAY!

- we went to the place where we'll be having our reception... it should be really nice
(hopefully the weather cooperates...)
- we registered at one place (The Bay)
(Dear gosh! Have you registered before? What did you think of it??
It's so annoying D: ...things are so expensive, and it's hard to decorate a future house that you haven't seen yet...)
- we still need to do our invitations
- we actually have another engagement photos session this Saturday 
(hopefully it's not all rainy...)
- still no luck on house business

One other thing I wanted to mention...Do you remember last year I was playing Soccer??
Well I'm playing soccer again :D
Yesterday was our first game...so it was a little slippery, and we definitely lost...but it was fun!
I'm looking forward to the next game :)

I have a few pictures I took on the weekend that I'll share.... TOMORROW! :D
This post is long enough ;)

Anyways, hope all is well on your end... and that you're having some sunshine, lollipops and rainbows on your end.  Have a good weekend? Get up to any adventures?

Byeas for meow :)!
