Lethbridge Water Tower

Yesterday we drove to Lethbridge (about an hour and half drive from here) to go and have dinner at Ric's Grill. It is a chain restaurant (although I didn't know that) and the one in Lethbridge is located high up in an old water tower. It was a yummy meal with great company and an enjoyable time overall.

It was so funny. We had some time to waste before our reservations so decided to walk around the mall. It is a crazy, small world. I ran into some of my friend's aunts (who I have meet several times) as she was walking around the mall. It was really funny and great to see her! What a small world.


So we just moved and one of the harder rooms to work on was my stamping space. These are some of the before pictures and when I clean it up a little this afternoon, I'll take after pictures. I'm happy with it so far!

Life Update

Well it has been a long time since posting last. And, a lot has happened! We are all moved now to our new city and getting settled in our new home. It is coming along quite well and feeling more and more like home. We look forward to making some friends and meeting people. Hopefully church tomorrow will help. I will post some photos of your house soon (I have to take some).

One room I am excited about it my stamping space! It is much larger than my old room and I like the workspace that I have. I'm looking forward to spending some time down there, hopefully tomorrow and using the new stamps I have (that haven't been touched in weeks and they just got trimmed yesterday!). Priorities...I know.

Have a great day!
