A co-worker recently returned from vacation in the sunny south after celebrating her birthday. I was assigned to card-seeking duty, but I couldn’t find anything I liked so I made one instead!
In other news, the other day my talented glutton of a dog got into the kibble cupboard while Mike and I were out. When we got home, he was lethargically lying around with a huge (and loudly grumbling) belly. He would lie on one side for a half hour, then slowly flip to his other side and stay there for another half hour (kind of like his person, actually, uhmm…). You’d think he learned his lesson, but Mike has already caught him trying to open the cupboard again. In short, this comic by Cyanide and Happiness sent from my friend sums it up pretty well:
Mike and I have just returned from Disney World! Everyone loves pointing out that it is not Disneyland in California. Disney World is in Orlando, Florida and consists of four separate parks (we spent a day at each): Magic Kingdom (with the Cinderella Castle), Hollywood Studios (has a lot of stunt shows, similar to Universal in California), Animal Kingdom (kind of like a zoo, but with the fake Tree of Life in the centre) and Epcot (a focus on futuristic technology, and has sections of the park dedicated to different countries around the world). It was super rainy during our week there, but on the bright side, it meant there were very few lines.
We also went to Universal Studios in Orlando, which consisted of way cooler roller coasters, a few hilarious simulators/shows, and of course, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Yes, I had butterbeer, and yes, it was delicious. The only sunny day happened to be the day we were leaving (actually, it started pouring on our way to the airport), but since our flight was in the evening, we went back to Epcot, which was hosting an International Food and Wine Festival. While munching on some yummy bites, I also took a few pictures with my newfound friend Stitch in “different places around the world”. How many countries can you identify in the pictures below? (answers at the bottom)
Left to right, top to bottom: Canada, England, France, India, Japan, USA, Italy, Germany, Africa, China, Norway, Mexico
Tomorrow Mike and I will be going on an adventure to Disneyworld (and yes, Megan, possibly the Harry Potter theme park) amidst the thunderstorms in the forecast. It’ll be just like our first year of dating again – when every date we went on was pouring rain. Mike reminded me that during our trip we will celebrate the two year mark from when he proposed. At which I responded by asking why he didn’t propose with a puppy like this guy. That’s married life for ya But anyway, before we go, I wanted to share a few cards I’ve given out in the last week. First, congratulations to Gary and Laura on their beautiful wedding at the Shangri-La (card above). We promise to be over soon to see your new house.
Next up, two birthday cards – one belated (Sabrina – above) and one early (Megan – below)! It seems to be a common trend among my friends to be out-of-town for their birthdays (I’m guilty of this as well). I’m probably a bit more jealous of Sabrina’s euro-trip than Megan’s work trip to… uhm… middle-of-nowhere? It’s okay though, we’ll make up for it when you’re back!
This summer I went to my very first wedding (that wasn’t my own)! It was for my lovely friend Linda Ho, who actually was the one who introduced me to Mike. Here is the card I made for her and her new hubby David:
My uncle is also getting married, so it’s basically been a lovey dovey season. Here is the card that got sent overseas:
Did I mention I’m going to another wedding this weekend? Super excited for Laura and Gary!
