I Want to Knit

oh yeah, i have a blog
It would do me good to remember that I have a blog and you know, update it once in a while.

Good news- the honeymoon photos were recovered! My uncle gave the disk to his technician who was able to get them all back for us! Maybe 6 or so have black bars across them that ruin the photo, but I can't complain because all the others are perfect.

I did some knitting on the honeymoon (not when Y and I were together, only when I was alone saving seats or while he ws rollerblading) and am somewhere about 3/4 done the Shoalwater Shawl which I will always call my Honeymoon Shawl. It will actually take a bit longer to finish because once the shawl itself is done (which grows 4 sts every 2 rows and thus takes longer for each row) I still have the knitted border. As soon as I finish Y's birthday socks I will be finishing the shawl.

This photo doesn't show all my's just what I took on the plane on the way down to Florida. I am waiting for the all-clear from my uncle before I start using my memory card again and can take new pics (my Canon doesn't have internal memory). I have finished the bottom chart, a full repeat of the top chart, and halfway through the second repeat.

I will be posting some wedding photos over the weekend once Yannick and I go over them and choose the nice ones. ;)

To Nicole: I might be able to make you a poodle skirt by your deadline...please email me directly (as in, don't comment here) because with the comments I don't have an email address for you.

To everyone who wished good wishes on the wedding and honeymoon...thank you!

first post as a Mrs

I'm back!

Had a great time at the wedding! Everything and everyone looked beautiful and the food was out of this world! I know there are a million photos of the wedding floating around in cyberspace from all the guests who brought digital cameras and uploaded the photos to online albums...but I'm too lazy to go find one right now. I just got back and I'm still vegging.

The wedding was a real party, with the last guests leaving at almost 3am!! We're a party animal bunch, let me tell you. The next day we had a brunch for the out-of-towners, and then Yannick and I spent the rest of the day and night packing because Tuesday morning we left for our honeymoon.

The honeymoon was a blast, both the weeks in Florida and the parts on the cruise. I would have photos to upload and show off...but...(this is embarassing)...on the last night of the cruise, at the end of the 2nd week of our 3 week honeymoon...I accidentally erased the memory card in our digital camera.

I know.

So there are no photos to show...but we're seeing about having them recovered, if possible.

In the meantime rest assured that I had a wonderful time, am rested, am somewhat tanned, am happy, and am loved.

I wish the same to you all, especially now during the holidays.

L'Shana Tova and Happy New Year to everyone.

amusing thought
I keep thinking that people should be thinking up favors to ask my dad.

You know, because he can't refuse them on this, the day of his daughter's wedding.


Yes, it is 7:22am on the morning I will be wed, and I am blogging. I woke up a few minutes ago to a silent house (alarms due to go off in 10 min) and the rain falling outside. I don't mind the rain. Those who know me know it is my preferred weather. I'm just worried about getting from place A to place B IN the rain. But secretly I'm glad it's raining and not hot and sunny...this kind of day is really "me" and seems so peaceful to me. I could do without the hayfever though.

I went to pick up my cake last night and I can honestly say it was the first thing from this whole wedding planning to not go smoothly. We only had the top tier of 3 made, as the other two are cardboard and I only wanted the cake to bring home and freeze for our 1 year anniversary. So I went to Patisserie Gascogne to get it and it's all wrapped up in a box tied with string. The girl hands it to me and I asked if I could see it. She says "ok" and pushes back the corner of the box. The cake seemed fine, but I wanted to see the whole cake before I accepted ownership of it. Good thing was broken!

I have a photo at home that I forgot to send to myself to post, but sue me I'm a little pre-occupied. :) The hard icing shell covering the cake was literally dented in with 3 cracks broken in it on one of the "corners". (Hmmm...does a round cake have corners?) So they say they will rush bake one tonight and deliver it to the hall tomorrow (today). They wanted to know what time the wedding was at. I lied and told them 3pm instead of 5pm. I don't want to have to worry if they are late or anything.

So in about 30-60 min the hair and makeup people will arrive, along with those of my bridesmaids that will be having themselves made up.

Around 10:30 Yannick and I will see each other for the first time, and then leave to go find a place to take (indoor) photos, then meet everyone else back at the hall for 2pm for the bridal party photos.

Signing the marriage certificate at 4:30 and then 5:00pm is the ceremony during which (as is usually the case in Jewish weddings) I will already be married. Cocktails at 6:00, then dinner and party at 7:00. I'm so excited to try the food! I hear the Italian halls have amazing meals.

The alarms are starting to go off so I'll sign off for now. My next post will be as a Mrs.

...'twas the night before the wedding...
So I'm at my aunt's house where my Toronto family has gathered for a little dinner the night before the wedding.

Had a nice shock and surprise as all of a sudden my cousin Mark walks in the room...Mark who has been attending school in Scotland and Paris and who has told us since we got engaged in Oct/05 that he couldn't attend the wedding. My mom and her sister Mimi were in on it, but Mark's mom Fran was blown away. She literally stood there, stunned into shock for about 5 minutes before realizing that her son was in the room. It was a great surprise because my uncle passed away last year and even though a wedding is time for celebration it was hard that Mel wasn't here, that Mark was out of town and it was only her and Jon at home. Great surprise!

Soon I'll head back to my mom's to sleep, and at 8:30am the hair and makeup parade begins.

I won't have time to say it tomorrow so to Yannick on his day, so in advance...


p.s. I created a hotmail account that I will check if I get a chance, so if anyone needs to reach me during the next 3 weeks email
