January in a nutshell.

Hi friends. I decided I should do a major month update, complete with pictures. Enjoy =)

Enjoyed the 3 days of January when it wasn't snowing. All the hoarfrost was pretty though.

Had fun car rides with Christopher and Momo.

Went to a Steinbach Pistons (minor league hockey team) game, which was actually really fun, even though it wasn't much of a game and they pwned us 4-1.

Went to Chapters with my girls and wreaked havoc as usual.

Appreciated some art at Starbucks (this was a lazy picture, as I took it from the other end of the store instead of actually getting closer)

Had my picture drawn by my favorite artist <3

I spent a lot of time hanging out with my peeps, enjoying homemade pizza and laughs.

Tried the most random chip flavours I've ever seen. The Fries'n Gravy were actually okay, because they really did taste like fries and gravy! But the Roast Chicken was just weird. I don't know what it actually tastes like. Not enjoyable, I'll tell you that.

Took some pretty pictures that I'd like to share with you.

And that's about it.


Oh yeah, and I got engaged.

For real, friends!!!! It happened on Saturday. Chris told me that morning that his parents wanted to have supper with us, so after I was done work and got ready, we went over to their place. We walked inside, but there wasn't anyone there! I was like "what the heck, where are they, I wanna eat!!" Chris was all cool, and he's like, oh, maybe they're downstairs.

Up until this point I honestly just thought we were having supper with his family. But then we get downstairs, he opens the door, and I see this:

At that point I knew exactly what was happening, so I kind of went into shock, and I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry or what, so I just looked at Chris and said "are you for real??"

Yes he was. He had prepared a wonderful meal for us (which he made himself! I'm so happy he can cook because I can't don't like to), and before he brought out dessert, he got up, got a small gold box (what was inside?), went down on one knee, and said "Felicia, will you do me the honour of becoming my wife?" And I said "Yes, yes, yes, yes!" Then we stood there and laughed and hugged and laughed for about 10 minutes.

We were sooo flipping giddy; it was awesome. After we had dessert, his parents (my future in-laws!) came down and his mom took some pictures of us to remember the occasion =)

My face hurt from smiling and laughing so much!!)

That's pretty much how we were all evening.

 So this summer, on June 17, this crazy couple:
is gonna tie the knot.

I'm so excited, and yet it almost doesn't seem real! It's so weird! And awesome <3

Here's one more shot of the bling:

Isn't it gorgeous? And in 134 days, the man that put it on my finger will be mine all mine mwahhahahahaha!!!!

Yes, I do get a little crazy. So in the months to come there will likely be lots more posts about wedding planning. I'll also probably ask advice/tips/cheap alternatives (we are 2 students, after all).

Sigh. I love him =)


  1. Aw, Felicia!!!

    1- Thank you for the update! I've been wondering how you've been (for realz).

    2- I was in Europe this summer and saw ridiculous special edition World Cup Lay's chip flavors. Stuff like German bratwurst and French cheese. Wild. In England they have prawn flavored chips. Yech.

    3- YOU'RE ENGAGED!!!! Oh, congratuLAtions, sweetheart! That is so wonderful, and I'm so happy for you! Happy days! Happy days!

    Hugs, hugs, hugs!

  2. Congratulations Fee. That's uber-exciting. But don't have those chips at the wedding (or the ones Lindsay mentioned for that matter). It'll scare off all your guests and you won't get any loot. Just kidding. But congrats anyway.


  4. OMG!!!! This is so AWESOME! Congrats! Here's to your happiness!

    Seriously though, I can't wait for the photo's. I love weddings! :D

  5. How fantastic!!! Congratulations on the engagement :) I'm so happy for you!

  6. I'm so happy for you, Friend! You guys are so cute together! The room looked beautiful and the ring is GORGEOUS!
