Home Sweet Home

I am excited that r. and I are getting our own place together :)
We currently live in the basement of my parents house and have been for over a year while I completed my BEd, but my hunny has been living with my rents even longer than that....while I was in another city at University and only home for holidays, summer and weekends r. lived here and rented from my parents for a couple years. (most people find this odd or interesting but they get along great!)
But now we have a casa to call our own and will be moving in just over 2 weeks

and this is where I will be preparing our meals - my fav room in the house, haha.

I'm so giddy and excited because our Honeymoon is booked - almost (looking at flights now)
but the hotels are booked and I have the confirmation numbers
for our trip to the Canadian Rookies.
I have been out west before (3 times) and went to Jasper on the tram and to the hot springs but thats it besides Calgary and Edmonton visiting friends and family but
r. has never been and I know he is going to love it!
The Rookies are known to be beautiful and tranquil and it's actually a "hot spot" for honeymooners and I know how wonderful it will be.
Here's where we will be staying....

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

I'll be hitting up this luxury spa at Banff Springs

and enjoying the views at Lake Louise
Yay! We are leaving the Monday after the wedding and going for 6-7 nights

The little housewife that could

I have been living in the 1960's or so it seems.....
I have been an at home wife {actually fiance} for the past month
while my hunny has been bringing home the bacon.
He's been gone to work and taking care of fiances while
I have been baking, cleaning and cooking.
And here's a secret, I've loved it!
He came home from work the other day early, gave me a kiss and grabbed a couple home-made freshly baked cookies then headed outside and played with d. our baby doggy,
all the while I was setting the table and getting a chicken dinner ready and.....
I was in my glory! I was absolutely happy making my husband to be dinner and cookies.
And it has been like this almost daily for the last month.
This post by m. I found very appealing about this lifestyle
I to want to live in the 1950-60's

This can't last forever though because I start my part-time job training tomorrow and will be supply teaching soon, as soon as they have the next orientation session.

I. am. in. LOVE.

I am in love with the most amazing man
tomorrow I am going shopping with the moms and my fab bridesmaid b.
for my wedding gown.
"the dress".... that I will walk down the aisle in,
and marry him in.
It's a big decision and I have already been dress shopping with my MOH, k. and friend c. and b. so I know how I want to look on our special day.
I am helplessly, head over heels, all consuming in love with r.
and I can't wait to be married.
