You may not know this about Mike and I… but we’re an auction family! Well, him and his family are. I came along for the ride the moment he and I started dating.
Wards Auctions has been around for many, many, MANY years. Mikes Dad (sarcastic, funny, smartass. Just like him!) is the fabulous auctioneer and the leader of the pack, and the whole dang fam jam helps out. Mikes Mom, Jayne, is the “Auction Goddess”, and his siblings and I are there as well helping out when we are needed.
Mike and I are ALWAYS in the office during auction days. I’m the auction princess and he’s the one who makes everything work and he makes our lives much easier with his “can fix any problem and answer any question” ways. He’s Wards wonder child. He knows it. We all knows it.
So, if you’re an auction buff, know someone who is or even a virgin auction-going newbie (welcome to the dark side!), you should check us out! DO IT.
Don’t live in or near Edmonton? Excuses, excuses. Well, we’re online! So no excuses for you! 😉
This past weekend was a lovely one. Mike and I drove to Calgary to visit with my family and spend some time in Banff. We had such a lovely time.
I decided I needed some extra family time, so I’m staying in Calgary for the next few days or maybe longer, we shall see. Mike left last night and made it safely back to Edmonton. I remember when we used to have a long distance relationship when we first started going out, and the hardest part was always those last few minutes before one of us left the other to go home. It kinda felt like that all over again last night.
But, it’s been lovely seeing my family and Mike will be back soon to get me and take me back. It’s just hard being away from him, is all. I’m sure most of you know the feeling. This whole “missing you” emotion really is a hard one. I sure do love that boy 🙂
On another note, it’s absolutely gorgeous here in Calgary! I’ve already went for a long run, took my puppy Vienna out for a long walk and enjoyed my smoothie and Beauty Detox Foods book on the patio! And it’s not even 10am yet! I really forgot how much I loved this area of the city too, so calm and pretty. Right beside a huge natural park. My parents are lucky ducks to live here 🙂
I’ve attached some of the photos from our little day trip to Banff. It was Mikes first time there too! I’m happy I was able to be his lovely tour guide.
The title says it all, my lovelies. I. Am. Terrible! I haven’t posted on here in forever! Longer than forever even! Life got in the way a little bit, but I promise to continue to grace you with my charm & wit from now on!
…Until the next time I’m terrible.
I’m off to Calgary tomorrow to visit with family & spend some time in Banff as well, which I’m CRAZY excited for! 🙂
I shall post more while I’m there on this bloggy blog and my other one! I hope you’re all doing lovely.
To those of you lovely people who read my little bloggy blog on a regular basis, you know that I’ve been away in Calgary visiting family for the last little while. Almost two weeks actually! I had a wonderful time being back there and not just because I got totally spoiled by my parents. That’s right, I’m the favorite. (Deny it ALL you want Momsie and Dadsie, we all know it’s true. Wink.) It was sad to say goodbye to not only them, but to my kitty and puppy as well. They are my babies and I’mma miss them tons. I know I’ll be back soon though, Christmas is just around the corner after all! Also, YAYCHRISTMAS!
My trip wasn’t just about seeing family and cuddling pets though. I made it into a bit of a detox trip. I feel like I’ve detoxed my body, mind and spirit. I also treated myself and got my hair did, so now it’s even more red! That had nothing to do with anything, I just wanted to share because it looks so darn lovely.
This mini getaway was much needed for me in alot of ways, but I’m very happy to be going home today. I’ve missed my someone special so much and I can’t wait to see him in a few hours. Plus, I’ve been told he completely cleaned and de-cluttered our place! I’m usually the one to do things like that. I believe the world works much better when it’s organized and tidy. So I’m looking forward to that as well. Because I’m awesome like that.
I’ve been in Calgary the last few days visiting family and I’ve been having a lovely time. My Mom & I are pretty hilarious together, so it’s been a fun time. Also, I awoke this morning to a winter wonderland, so that was exciting.
As much fun as I’m having here though, I’m very much missing my sweetheart back in Edmonton. When he & I began dating over a year ago, it started as a long distance relationship. Him there, me here. He & I wold visit any chance we could, but it just wasn’t the same as seeing one another everyday. When I moved in with him 8 months ago, I really didn’t know what to expect. I was hoping for the best, but don’t we all? Moving in with each other was the best thing we could have done. I love living with him, being able to cuddle him whenever I want, and falling asleep next to my best friend every night. Not everyone can say they get to do that 🙂
I’ve been gone since Sunday though and it’s been a rough few days of sleep for me. I never realized how difficult it would be to not see him everyday. We talk throughout the day of course, but it’s not the same. Not only do I miss him, I miss my massages and back drawings I get on a nightly basis!
I’ll be going home soon though, so until then I shall just have to try to get through my restless nights away from him.
