Marriage is a Marathon... a half marathon.

Life is starting to get back to normal.  Check out Ellery's update about our Lululemon half marathon civil ceremony on our wedding blog.

And photos from the ceremony by our photographer Crystal Giles.

June: A Review in Pictures

The Nugget and I ran the Starbucks Run for Women. 
We raised $400 for Plan Canada and ran the 5K race.

Ellery and I finished our invitations and sent them out.  
Huge accomplishment.

We visited Joe in Nanaimo and got our matching wedding Bee tattoos.

I turned 35! And was showered with presents and love.

Ellery even baked me an Oreo Cake and it was yummy.

And I ran my first Half Marathon with my good friend, Aimee.
We even beat our goal time of 2:30.  Did it in 2:19.  Woot!

Stuff and Nonsense... (I feel like I've used this title for a post before.)

Sadly, I didn't make it into the Carded show, but Ellery did and that was rad. Here's his post on how it went. 

I also posted on our wedding blog for the first time here.

Nugget ran her first 2.5K Mini Sun Run.

And we finally got our laundry room set up.  It's actually more of a large closet rather than a room but at least it's organized now.

Judging from my lack of blog posts, it appears I have dropped off the face of the earth.  Not so!  Wedding stuff is all consuming and on top of that I've decided to train for the Scotia Half Marathon which I will be running to commemorate my 35th Birthday in June.  
So what else has been going on?  Not a hell of a lot.

Ellery and I started a wedding blog which we're trying to update without giving too much away.

We're trying to re-organize the apartment so that everything is nice and neat for when we start our "official" married life together.

I'm training Nugget to run the kids SunRun and the Starbucks Run for Women.  It's become our mother-daughter bonding time.  She wants to eventually get to the point where she can run with me, Ellery and Jenn and be what she called "the super healthy running family".

And I sent my first ever submission to the Carded show.  This is it.

Been a While...

It's been a whirl wind since the engagement.  In case you missed it, Ellery's Part 2 of our Engagement Story is here.  We've both been busy planning our wedding and despite feeling incredibly rushed to make decisions for an event that is a year away, we're having fun.  The hardest part so far was picking the date, and after changing it three times for various reasons, we've settled on August 18th, 2012.  I have a ton of DIY projects planned and we've been debating on blogging about wedding stuff because we don't want to spoil surprises.  This is partly why I haven't posted in a while... it feels wrong to discuss and show photos of the wedding things I'm working on.

Aside from wedding stuff, I've been knitting more viking hats.  I recently shipped one to Paris and one to Norway which was awesome.  Halloween planning has also begun and this year I'm not planning anything epic for myself because, to be honest, I have wedding brain.  We're doing a trial run of Nugget's costume tonight so I'm hoping that will spark the Halloween bug.

Somewhere a Pig is Flying...

So over the Labour Day long weekend we went to Cutesypoo's house warming barbecue, had a Date Day in Whistler and got engaged...  yep... ENGAGED.  I don't think my mother ever thought this would ever happen.  Heh.  Read more about our ring on Ellery's blog here.

My freakishly long finger makes this photo look a bit odd.

Crocheting Whatever

Been making a few more things for my last Artful Sunday on August 28th.  
I made a couple more Kokeshi...

Mia is approximately 6" tall.

Keiko is approximately 7" tall. 

I also crocheted a bunch of hearts that I'm not sure what to do with yet. 
They're about 2.5" in length x 2.5" at the widest part.
They may end up being brooch pins.

And this is my prototype for a Sugar Skull.  
This one was pretty fun to make so I'll probably make some more.
