A spoonful of sugar

Today my sisters and I had a tea party. It was delightful! We dressed up, spoke in english accents, put on red lipstick, drank lemonade and ate cookies. I think my favourite part was Rachel's homemade parasol. Enjoy :)

Lonely Week

At the beginning of the week I decided I would call it lonely week. My parent's left on an anniversary get away to New York, Tim and his family left to Disneyland for one last family vacation and I  was left at home to babysit all my siblings. Alone. However as the week passed, it  turned out to be not so lonely. As a matter of fact it turned out to be rather lovely. So in conclusion of the weeks experiences I decided to give it a new name : 
The not so lonely lovely week :)

Lets Get Lost Tonight...

So over the past couple weeks, Tim and I have started the season Lost. At first I thought it would just be a fun thing to do, watching an episode here and there. However, an episode here and there has now turned into an average of three to four a night!  You know things are bad when we are on the episodes ahead of kimberly, or when I start dreaming that we were in a plane crash and now stranded on an island. It's official. We are complete junkies. It's only been a couple weeks and we are well on our way through season two (mind you, we never even get to hang out until 10:00.) Last night Rose and Bernard were reunited after thinking each other had been killed. It was so romantically glorious. Lost is more than a T.V. show, it is an experience. There are six seasons, will we finish all six within the next 28 days? If you would have asked me that question two weeks ago I would have said absolutely not. (I'm not much of a T.V. watcher.) But today, I will gladly accept the challenge. It's time to get Lost. :)

P.S. I know this might sound completely ridiculous, but since Lost is filmed in Hawaii, it is really preparing Tim and I for our future life there. Familiarizing ourselves with the island and what to expect will be a strength to us! ...Okay so maybe I'm trying to make myself feel better for watching so much Lost. But you have to admit, it's a rather clever justification.

This week was wonderful, my family is wonderful and Tim is wonderful. 

Special day number one : Love day! Valentines day is one of my favourite days of the year. This year my sweetheart took me out to lunch in Lethbridge and gave me flowers. (Flowers, there is nothing that makes my heart smile bigger.) What sets this Valentines day apart from previous ones is the person I spent it with. It doesn't matter what we do because anything I do with Tim automatically becomes my new favourite thing. What I did for him on that very lovely day was heart shaped sugar cookies. I made him a plate full that said "Your biceps are huge kiss me" ( it's an inside joke between us). I also made him a card and gave him a big bag of his favourite chocolate - mini eggs. I love Tim Zemp and I love love day! 

Special day number two : This day was very very very special, and much more so than special day number one. (It just came later in the week.) It was the day that I went to the temple for the first time. I went with my parents, Tim and my new soon to be parents. I am so grateful that I have the privilege of going to the temple. It will help me prepare for many many things including the date of March 19th when Tim and I will be married. The temple is wonderful.

Special day number three : Today! There is no big event that makes today special. But as I count the days until the wedding, today is the first day in the twenties!! When we first got engaged there were 87 days until the wedding. Today there are 29. We are two thirds of the way there!!! What a wonderful thought.

The flowers Tim gave me :)
