Wedding related update + Olympics

I only have a minute to write as I have to head out to work shortly but here I am writing from the heart of the Olympics! Living in Vancouver during these 2 week sure is exciting! Paul & I have both gotten jobs in yaletown (which is right near a few venues as well as where the opening & closing ceremonies are). While our jobs are only a block apart we work entirely opposite shifts. The restaurant I am working at has given me all day shifts and Paul works each night from 5pm until 2am grilling burgers in a beer tent. Oh well; we might not be able to see each other for 2 weeks but we are both working to save money towards our wedding, so we have a joint goal which helps.

Last night was an exciting wedding preparation night; I picked up all our centerpieces, and our wedding invites! Thanks to one of my amazing bridesmaids, Crystal, I was able to quickly label all the envelopes and last night put together many invites. Super fun! The more things we buy or book make this all the more real. We are getting married in 76 days (or so the top of this website tells me)!

We are having such fun planning; well lets be honest I am having such fun planning and Paul is enjoying talking over ideas with me, adding some of his own, and then letting me plan again. I <3 planning. Once the Olympics are we can start looking for a place to live. THis is Paul's big job. He is pretty excited. I love that he is doing that; I find looking for homes stressful. I am so excited to see what he finds us!

Alright, I am off to work until church; where I will not only get to worship God, see friends & family but also get to see Paul!


Edited to Add:

Home from work & church: Both were good. At work I stood outside manning our kiosk; it was great, got to experience Yaletown in the Olympics. Buskers, tourists, breakdancers, etc; All sorts of fun! Church was also great; got to sit with Paul. Since we work completely different shifts this is the only time I will have seen him over this while. I miss my love.

We were supposed to celebrate Valentines Day after church but he had to work cause his boss' family member is in ICU. So instead of being sad I ate tasty garlic pasta, heated up by me, made by the the people who freeze vegetables. I am drinking Disaronno on the rocks and catching up on TV. I will go to bed & sleeeeeep and be ready for work at 9:30. 

OH and when I was buying groceries tonight I found out my debit card was cancelled! So now I have to go into TD in the morning and find out what's up. Ugh.

ANyways; I am happy. I am not hungry. I am excited to marry Paul. I am enjoying living in the Olympic city, though we don't have cable and therefore can't watch the Olympics. 

Alright. Bed. Night

it's so annoying when they cancel cards. it's usually from 'fraud suspect'.

And I think it is awesome that you got a job at the olympics! We were watching them on TV last night, in a pub in London, and laughing that we had to go to London just to see a bit of Vancouver/home.

Sounds fun. It would be really cool to be among all the excitement :) I'm glad all your wedding stuff is coming together smoothly too. That makes things so much easier!
