So it begins…


APTOPIX London Olympics Opening Ceremony

My husband will officially be glued to the TV for the next two weeks straight….the Olympics have come in good time - we need the break, TV watching is exactly what’s in order!

We had a family Olympics powwow this afternoon and evening - vegging out, eating and watching the great job London did on the opening ceremony.  One of James’ favourite events kicks off tomorrow – swimming 400 medley.


My favourite part was of course Mr. Bean (I know my brother and dad would agree) – close runner up was the Queen and James Bond, and of course Paul McCartney’s “Hey Jude”!!  Dance Party at BJAMS!

My brother got married!!!!!

What a fantastic, beautiful day!  Everyone looked incredible, Jenn was stunning!!  Annika was a little angel flower girl - she did so well and looked so pretty.  It was a perfect day and I couldn’t be more happy to officially be able to call Jenn my sister!!!!!

Party Time for Princesses!

Annika is at her first day of dance camp today!!  She was very excited to see some of her dance friends and will be making lots of new dance friends this week.

This week is full of beautification for the wedding this weekend, I can’t believe it’s finally here!!!!  I’m so excited for Saturday!!  Hair appointments, nails, makeup…Annika will be in her element with all of this!!

Other than that, not much to update on.  We had the perfect relaxing weekend that we needed - a bbq and movie with Dale and Rob Saturday night, and reading lots of 50 Shades Winking smile

Loaring Triathlon

The 10th edition of the Loaring Triathlon went off without a hitch.  With lots of help and awesome friends, the Loarings pulled off another great event.

I decided to give the beginner tri a go, in the hopes that it would motivate me to start working out a little more….we shall see….

My future sister-in-law and I did it, and it was a lot of fun.  She and I may have to become racing buddies!

Stay tuned for some possible exciting new endeavours for the Loaring Tri’s next edition Winking smile
