Oh man, one leaky air mattress onto of a non-leaky one was not a good idea haha. So I got up this morning around 9am and started to get ready and did a little bit of packing so it won’t be that bad later today. I got ready, and within an hour or so, breakfast was served! Thanks to Jessie’s mom, we had a very lovely breakfast. Food was delicious. After eating, we all sat around for a while for everyone else (Amanda and Arielle) to wake up and get ready. Amanda was just lazy and tired so she kept sleeping but Arielle wasn’t feeling good. Booo. So, we sat around, watched some car/truck related shows and then The Fug-itive came on! Yeah, I know it’s called the Fugitive but we just kept calling it that. Even the Pug-itive! It was be a lot more adorable if the whole movie was acted by pugs….wouldn’t make sense but it would be cute. Finally, around … what? Almost 11-12pm, we headed to the beach where Jessie’s dad had the boat out! Wooo! How exciting! We got to the beach, Jessie, Tanya, Amanda, Ivan, John (Jessie’s Dad), and I were all out on the boat and we did some tubing! When I say we, I mean Amanda, Tanya, and Jessie…haha. Ivan and I aren’t the best swimmers and I’m not particularly strong or have a strong stomach for motion sickness….haha. After a few rounds, I went back to the beach to be greeted by Keaton and Arielle! Oh, and Mike and Wes was there too haha. Arielle and I came up with some plans to get her changed ON the beach so she could sit in the water with me haha. It was a good idea and sitting on the beach was so so nice. After awhile, we started to play some frisbee with everyone. Then later, we sat around for a bit, talked, relaxed, and decided we all needed some food. We headed back to the house and got ready and headed over to the strip for some Cheryl Ann’s and then delicious ice cream right next door! om nom nom. On our way there, we went into Sea Jewels to cool off…haha, and then Archies for some random candy and goodies. We got our delicious Cheryl Ann om nom nom. So good. Then some ice cream afterwards. Cup was definitely a good idea and NOT a cone. On our way back we went into Archies and looked around for awhile and of course, I had to get myself a “souvenir” shirt and I got this black tank top. When we got back to the house, we all started packing and getting ready to leave. Around 7pm, we all got packed and headed home. Once we got home, we unpacked, put everything away, and Ivan and I had to go out and get mom from Sarah’s. Then we got home with her, I had a shower, and just relaxed and took my time unpacking and putting everything away. Off to bed! TUNE IN TOMORROW!
Yaaaay! Finally the weekend! Today was an amazing day because I got to attend a beautiful wedding in Stratford and then spend some time in Grandbend with friends! So I got up this morning way earlier than expected, around 6:30 or so, and I started to get ready. I showered and all that stuff, pampered myself, and then did some final packing and moved a bunch of stuff downstairs to do living to get packed away into the car. I also did my nails in record time and had them dry before leaving, WIN! So Ivan and I headed off at 12:20 or so to head over to the bank quickly and then to Amanda’s Aunt’s place to meet up with her. Amanda arrived, I left with her and her mom to head back to HER house to get her dad and for Amanda to change. We left London by 2:40-2:50 and made it to Stratford by 3:30 or so. We wandered to the back of the country club and we said hi to Steve and he looked so calm and collected! He was only a little bit nervous. We then stood around for a bit and then started to get seated. The ceremony started, the groom and groomsmen walked down the aisle, then the bridesmaid who looked lovely, loved the dress, and then the man of honour, sharp, and then the Niki and her parents. I practically started crying when I saw Niki crying, god, haha. Her dress was beautiful, her hair piece matched her belt and later the shoes, she looked lovely. The vows and everything else was very beautiful. At the ceremony, there were also bubbles to blow and some fans to keep us cool which was very nice. Afterwards, Amanda and I headed into the club and the reception hall to take some detail shots of everything. I had an hour and I got photos of the set up slowly. Everything was very pretty, a few photos to come! The cocktail hour started and it was about an hour of that and the placed filled up! The hors d’oeuvres were delicious, cheese platter, fruit platter, all very good. Then the introduction of the wedding party and the newly weds, so good. Dinner then started: a caesar salad, chicken and steak with steamed veggies and mash potatoes, then a apple caramel cheesecake. Delicious meal. As Niki and Steve made their way around the tables, I managed to get a picture with them and I look VERY dark next to Niki…haha. After dinner, speeches. The speeches here so good, Steve’s Dad and Niki’s Dad were both hilarious, the speeches Ian (Best Man) and Greg/Kaytee (bridesmaid and man of honour) were also very lovely. Then Niki and Steve did their speech which was nice and Steve actually reread his vows because he was so quiet at the ceremony! It was a very lovely vow and so cute haha. The wedding was spectacular but we had to leave just before the dance. Niki and Steve, congratulations, best wishes and may the next few decades bring you even more joy and happiness. From there, Ivan got us and we headed to Grandbend! took us about an hour and getting a little lost to get here haha. When we got there, we parked in the back and started to unload everything and then later finding out that JESSIE had to friggin work Monday morning so we were actually all leaving Sunday night. DAMN IT JESSIE! Oh, so the people that were there, We have Bhooshan+Girlfriend, Eric, Vedran, Keaton, Arielle, Mike, Wes, Tanya, Jessie, and his parents! Oh, and of course the adorable Matilda and Cookie. Either way, we unpacked everything, put things that needed to be in the fridge in there, and yeah! After sitting around for awhile, we broke out twister which is always a fun game haha. After that, we sat around and just chatted. Vedran told us many stories of high school and elementary school even haha. We we gossiped a lot….oh it was so funny haha. Good to reminisce on the times. After some people left, other people went upstairs to sleep, and Ivan, Amanda, and I had the basement and four air mattresses to ourselves haha. It was nice. TUNE IN TOMORROW!
So for this weekend (starting Friday morning), I went to Jessie’s cottage in Grand Bend along side with Jessie (of course), Bhooshan, Martin, Arielle, Mike, Rachael, and Kelsie! It was a lot of fun =]
Watching strapping young lads moving stuff is awesome. Us ladies sat around (except Rachael who is a total tank) and watched and grabbed a couple of light items.
There was lots of …. hmmm … what’s a nice word to describe skanky looking girls … there is none. But let’s say there was a bunch of those. I digress, some were still really hot.
I managed to fall while getting my food on the first day and I’m pretty sure everyone thought I was an idiot but that’s okay, I might never see these people again.
I went to the beach for the first time to actually just hang out and swim and lay around in the sun. It was very awesome, hot, and sandy.
I definitely used sunscreen (SPF60) and didn’t try to tan one bit. But if I did get darker, not my fault!
The whole weekend insist of many “that’s what [s]he said” moments. Also lots of inappropriate jokes that was too vulgar for the neighbours definitely… haha.
I really enjoyed sitting around with everyone and just talking about random things.
Only one drink was spilled while playing cards.
It was no fail that at some point, the guys would want to play video games. It ended up being Soul Caliber and lots of Nazi Zombies. No Smash Bros because Jessie forgot the WiiMote.
We went to the beach at night and it was very windy and lots of pretty stars filled the sky.
Playing twister is hilarious when you play it the right way.
There was a lot of walking around in the hot summer heat that I definitely just rocked my bikini top like everyone else.
Archies like to sell overpriced clothes so I got a Neon Yellow Grand Bend Canada tank top instead for 20 dollars.
For the first time, I changed right in the middle of the store to see if a shirt fit. And it’s pretty awesome when it doesn’t matter if you’re wearing a top or not in Grand Bend. As long as it’s a bikini top, it’s okay.
I think I love walking around in sand because it exfoliates the skin but I hate it when it’s really hot.
I wish I could live in Grand Bend all the time because it just allows you to be in your bikini top all the time.
Sleeping on the floor wasn’t that fantastic since I kept waking up and never really slept. Got a total of 7 hours of sleep in two nights.
Only spent about 50 dollars or so and it was weekend well spent with some awesome people.
