Flames Game February 11 2013 (1)

1. I went to a Flames game earlier in the week. We didn’t win, BUT the boyfriend managed to get us amazing seats, plus it was my first time seeing the Flames play in OT in person. All in all it was a pretty fun night.

2. The Flames then went on to have an amazing night on Wednesday against Dallas. They ended up winning 7 – 4 over Dallas, and Cammalleri even got a hat trick. Woohoo!

3. The other night I had a dream I was Harry Potter. I was fighting Lord Voldemort. With a roll of tape. Weird and random, but I think it was one of the best dreams I’ve ever had.

4. I didn’t do anything for Valentine’s Day yesterday. Whether you’re in a relationship or not, it seems like a lot of pressure and high expectations either way. I’d much rather do something nice for my boyfriend cause I want to, not cause I have to.

Valentine's Day Candy February 14 2013

5. I did however got a box of chocolates from my brother. He’s pretty awesome.

6. I got asked for my number on Monday. I would never be able to do that – I’m so bad at making small talk and I doubt I would have the guts to risk getting shot down. Have you ever asked someone for their number?

7. That’s all I have this morning. Enjoy your weekend!

I meant to publish this post on Wednesday, but apparently I didn’t, and I was too busy celebrating to realize it. So here it is, a couple days late. Enjoy!

Birthday November 14 2012

I turn 30 today. I’ve been around for 3 decades. That’s kind of terrifying in so many ways. I never really thought I’d make it to adulthood, and it seems that I’ve arrived. Weird.

The last year has been pretty crazy.

A year ago, November 2011 I started dating my ex. He was the first guy I actually let in to know the real me. It was definitely terrifying at first, but totally worth it. I still think he’s a pretty awesome guy. He’s going to make someone very happy, and she’ll be very lucky to have him.

Yoga Mat Birthday November 14 2012

In January I took my very first yoga class. I was absolutely terrified, but I did it anyways, and ended up really liking it.

In March a family member got really sick, very fast. Almost dying sick, and we found out they had cancer. The month that they were in the hospital was crazy stressful, but at the same time, when they were allowed to come back home, it was such a relief. It makes you appreciate every day that you have with the people that you love.

Soccer Cropped Tourney June 2012

In April I started playing soccer. It was the first time I’d ever played. I was absolutely terrified, but in the end, I’m so glad I started. I had so much fun, and met some really amazing people.

In July I started dating my boyfriend. He’s kind of awesome if I do say so myself. We’ve only been together for four months, but at the same time it feels like we’ve spent so much time together already. I’m pretty glad I met him.

Stuff 009

In July we had to put down our dog, Bailey. I know I’ve mentioned him on the blog a couple times, and seriously, we loved him like crazy, even if he did cause trouble once in awhile a lot. The whole family was able to say goodbye – I was able to leave work early and my brother went into work late. It was so hard. Really hard, but we were able to spend an amazing 15 years with him that I wouldn’t trade for anything.

Blind Bay Vacation August 2012 (1)

I went on vacation in August for the first time in years. I spent mornings on the dock by myself, and the rest of the days with some of my favourite people. Possibly the most relaxing vacation I’ve ever been on.

It’s been a pretty crazy year. There’s been some fun stuff and some losses, successes and failures. I guess you never know what’s going to happen.

A week or two ago while I was reading the newspaper I saw an ad for Theatre Calgary’s upcoming season. When I saw that one of my favourite books, Pride and Prejudice,  was being put on I knew I had to find someone to go with me.

Pride and Prejudice Tickets September 8 2012

I asked the boyfriend if he wanted to go with me. I wasn’t expecting him to say yes, but he did, and I didn’t even have to talk him into it. Although we’ve been on lots of dates, I think this will be our first “fancy dress up” date.Our tickets aren’t until October, but I’m super excited about it.

Whenever I think of Mr Darcy, Colin Firth automatically pops into my head. He did such a great job playing him in the BBC version. I’m hoping this theatre one is just as good as that version.

Pride and Prejudice Tickets September 8 2012 (1)

The last show I saw was The Lion King a couple summers ago. I had wanted to see it for a long time, and when it came to Calgary I knew I had to get tickets. I’ve also seen The Phantom of the Opera, Show Boat, and South Pacific. My favourite has to be The Phantom of the Opera.

What’s your favourite movie version of Pride and Prejudice? What’s the last show you’ve seen at the theatre?
