Some of February and March.

It's been a while since I've done a picture update of life, so here goes. Don't worry, I don't have any huge news in this one. ;)


I've recently been playing around with different manicures

 Took this picture the day I bought my wedding dress! I thought it was a cool looking building.

 Flowers that Christopher sent me (kind of a belated anniversary gift, I suppose)

I downloaded a new app for my phone, Hipstamatic. I love it!! It's not free but well worth the $1.99. All of these following photos are either edited with Hipstamatic or Instagram. Instagram is free, and it's super awesome as well! 

 My little sister in awe of her new Instagram app (she told me about Hipstamatic and I told her about Instagram)

 Chris in the middle of saying something hehe.

 Coffee and cake for dessert. Yum yum yum.

 Neat picture I took at a red light in the city.

 My first win!!!!

 Coffee cozy that Chris included in my Christmas gift. He got it on Etsy. I love him.

 Just edited a picture from our engagement. I think it looks pretty :)
 Cake pops from Starbucks = Heaven in my mouth (and lovely to look at!!)

 Working on a paper. I stayed up til one am finishing that thing last night!

 Chris and I went for breakfast on Sunday before church. It was lovely.

 Sleepyhead napping on my couch. I think that's the first time he's ever fallen asleep at my place. Even when he's dead tired he can't even fall asleep for a nap until he goes home. It's kind of cute ;)

A couple weekends ago a couple of mine and Chris' mutual friends got married. Kim was one of my first friends at SCHS (where I went for my grade 12 year) and we've stayed in touch ever since. It was a lovely wedding, and there were some moments that were so Kim it was awesome. The whole wedding generally made me excited for my own :D

Me and the bride.

Well, that's all for now! Watch out for an exciting post coming up soon!! Happy spring, my friends!

A letter to someone I want to give a second chance to.

Dear self I want to be,

I've decided that I'm not hopeless, and I'm going to strive for you after all. I've felt static for so long, but that's gonna change.

See you later,

A letter to someone I judged by their first impression

Dear Nichole,

I've only known you since December, when I started working with you. I thought it was going to be hard. You seemed like a know-it-all, and apparently you'd only been there a month. I was a bit apprehensive about working with you, but you proved me wrong.

A letter to someone that isn't in my province.

Dear Callie,

My lovely friend, how happy I am to know you! And now your life is changed forever, now that your baby boy has entered the world. I hope that some day I will get to meet you face to face, and I hope that day will be sooner than later. I have lots more to say, but I will save that for the letter I will write you on real paper, and send it to you for your eyes only ;)

A letter to someone that pesters my mind.

Dear model in the magazine,

I wish you wouldn't make me feel so bad about myself. I really dislike you, but it's nothing personal. I'm working on my self-esteem. And I know that I probably feel better about myself than you feel about yourself, which is truly sad.

Go eat some pasta and ice cream for dessert. You'll feel better.

A letter to someone I don’t talk to as much as I'd like to.

Dearest Michelle,

How are you doing? How is life? Any romance going on? These are the questions I would ask you if we were sitting in a Starbucks with lattes in hand. I know that I don't make it out to the city as often as I'd like, and now with the end of school looming and wedding plans it's even less. But someday, when I'm graduated and working, I will call you and set up a coffee date. Becuase you're a sweetheart and I don't want to lose touch.

Talk to you soon,

Dharma & Greg

Years ago I used to watch Dharma & Greg every so often on tv. I thought it was really funny, and I liked the relationships between the characters. I thought that the premise of a straight-laced guy marrying a free spirited woman after one date was absolutely hilarious, and I liked that their marriage wasn't always easy. They had to work at it sometimes, but they were committed to each other so they made it work. A while back I was at Walmart and I found season one of Dharma & Greg in the sale bin, so I snatched it up and promptly bought it. I think it was well worth my $20, because since then I've watched it so many times. Sad story: The show aired for 5 seasons, but only the first one is on DVD! How sad!! It's not on reruns anymore either! So I will have to be content with my lone season. Last night I popped in a disc, and I remembered again how much I love this show.

Flowers to brighten up my frozen existence

In the midst of this crazy whirlwind that I call my life, I have actually managed to plan my wedding pretty thoroughly so far! Most of the important things are booked, and everything is coming together. I'm excited to see it all put together!

This week I went to the florist with my mom to have a consultation and book the flowers. We went to the florist who did my sister's wedding, and Chris sometimes goes there to buy me flowers too. She's amazing and I know that I will be thrilled with the outcome. My bouquet is going to be really vibrant, which I wanted as a contrast to my white dress. I chose 3 main flowers, and put pictures below for you just so you have a visual ;)

I was wondering what the significance of these flowers are, and if they were fitting for a wedding boquet. I knew that yellow roses signified friendship, which fits because Chris is my best friend. I looked up white lilies (which are my favorite) and they signify purity. Now, I'm going with coral gerberas, which are somewhere between red and pink. Red gerberas mean love, passion, and desire, and pink gerberas again mean friendship. So without even knowing I picked good :) I also realized later that every bouquet Chris has ever given me has had lilies, gerberas, or roses. So that has even more significance :)

Fill in the Blank Friday 2.4

(courtesy of Lauren)

1. My biggest accomplishment in life thus far is being a month away from graduation. Seriously, I've wanted to give up so many times already, but here I am, almost done!

2. My favorite place to sit in my house is my bed. But hopefully when I get my new house (hehe) I'll have a perfect spot for a cozy reading corner =)

3. My fashion philosophy is I'm not sure... layers and bright colours.

4. Something every girl should have is a vibrant red nailpolish.

5. If you looked in my purse right now you'd find 7 pens, gum, mints, my dayplanner (aka my best friend), my camera, my wallet, 2 or 3 chapsticks, and a little pouch containing things like Advil, bandaids, hairpins, etc.

6. My favorite music right now is Phil Wickham.

7. My favorite part of my body is my eyes or my calves

Yet another useless week.

I stepped on the scale yesterday and have apparently gained 4 pounds. What the heck?

I have, however, realized what my problem is. Portion control and sugar. So those are things to watch.

I am also not hating the gym so much, and I even worked out at home because I'm on reading week now.

I need to make a playlist for the gym. Any suggestions are super helpful and much appreciated!!

On an unrelated note, right now I am listening to the most amazing cover of Hallelujah ever, by Mr Phil Wickham. Go on youtube and listen. Now. Click here.

A letter to the person I miss the most.

Dear Estela,

I wish you would stop leaving me for Mexico. I miss our movie nights and cooking lessons. But I know that's a part of you, and I don't hold it against you at all. I just miss you when you're gone. I'm happy that you'll be coming back in a month, and that you'll be standing up there with me when I get married. When I have my own house you'll have to come over and we'll watch Anne of Green Gables together (only takes us a year to get around to it!)

I love you, Sugar Bean!
<3 Felicia

A letter to a stranger.

Dear lady from the Kutless concert,

I can't remember your name, but I sure did have a good time chatting with you while we were waiting for the doors to open. I felt like I'd known you forever. I remember talking about being single, and you told me to be patient, God had the right man for me. I wish I could find you again, and tell you that little did I know, my future husband was at the same concert, and he saw me there, and talked to me. Then a couple weeks later he would ask me out. I doubt you would remember that conversation, but I will always remember how full of joy you were, and the peace that radiated from you. I wish I could be like that. Some day I will. I know that comes after years of walking closely with God.

I wish you all the best,

Reading Week (aka Felicia has to write 4 papers and an exam week)

Yes, that is right. No relaxing for me. That was on the weekend. Now it's Monday and it's time to get to work.

I have 2 shorter papers to write, a final paper for my missions class, an 8-page research paper to write on Dracula, and an exam to write in the city for my children's lit correspondence course. Plus I have to work 3 hours every day. My mom and sister want to go look at bridesmaid dress ideas this week, but they might have to go without me.

Not a good week.

It is my first Wednesday, and off to a good start (sarcasm). I forgot to weigh myself before I left the house, but I'm afraid it will be dismal anyway, so I'd rather not. I only managed to get 2 workouts in this week, and eating... Like I said, I like eating.

However, those workouts were pretty much breakthroughs, because I went by myself even though I really didn't feel like it! On one day I went to the gym at school. There were 2 jocks already working out when I got there. Now, I hate working out when there are tons of jocks. Just saying. By the time I had been on the treadmill for a half hour, there were about 12 of them, teeming everywhere. Needless to say, I had forced myself to stay for the half hour, and then I just left. I couldn't take it anymore. I was proud that I managed to do that. I don't like jocks.
