Once again, another weekend has zoomed by although it feels like it only just began a few hours ago. Luckily, for this past month, I've been able to enjoy both Mondays and Tuesdays off from work and school; as a result, tomorrow I'll be able to enjoy a relaxing visit to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, as well as a delicious brunch, with a good friend. Ever since I returned from a month-long trip to Asia, I've gained a new found appreciation for the beauty of my home city and province. I'm always struck by the beauty of our green forests, the morning mists, the changing leaves, and the fantastic mountains. In fact, I've made it a big check mark on my to-do list to visit more parts of British Columbia and Vancouver in order to fully experience the natural wonders that surround us.
In other news, I finally got my patent Zara booties! I've been wearing these everywhere since I received them on Monday-- in fact, they saved me when I was forced to commute through a torrential downpour on Thursday (apparently, we were hit with the tail end of a Hawaiian storm or something like that). Several roads actually flooded and we were forced to run to the next bus stop while some foolhardy vehicles remained stuck in the middle of the water. Also, I decided to break out this midi skirt that my aunt bought me in Singapore; I'm always happy when I can wear something 'summery' in the colder months. It makes me feel like I'm really getting my money's worth!

Wow, I almost forgot to mention that I finally have booked my wedding venue! I actually received word that we were holding a spot at the Hart House Restaurant last week; however, it wasn't until yesterday that we had officially signed the booking agreement papers and paid the first installment. The wedding will be held facing the picturesque Deer Lake and the reception will be set in a giant tent during the evening. I'm already incredibly excited as I've seen pictures of previous weddings and know that it will be a beautiful venue! As well, we were given two free tickets to the Creme de la Creme wedding show at the Four Seasons hotel downtown next Sunday. How I could say no to free food, goodie bags, fashion shows, and more?
What did you get up to this weekend? Also, do you have any fun goals that you plan to accomplish in the near future?
