you’ll see why i haven’t been able to post

This past weekend kicked off on Friday with the 4 o’clock wedding. Brian’s friend from high school was getting married. It’s crazy to think she’s a year younger than me (24) and now has a husband, a nearly 2 year old daughter and a 10 year old step-daughter. She’s a step-mother for goodness sake! It was a beautiful ceremony — the best one I’ve seen in terms of what the couple is actually saying to one another, the actual committments seemed real and realistic. We met some people from Queen’s who we didn’t know there and saw old acquaintances. Brian really wanted to do the Oil Thigh, so I promised we could do it if we have a wedding.

I also got to meet the first love of Brian’s life. Now, I’m not usually jealous, and I wasn’t jealous — more shocked that when I looked at her I could see me. It was a bit discombobulating.

Saturday morning was brunch with the bride’s friends and family and then we went to see a new house with Brian’s parents — then to a BBQ at my friend’s place. We played Apples to Apples. It was fantastic! Such a funny game that I totally recommend playing. My cheecks were hurting from smiling and laughing so much.

Then onto Sunday — we went to see an opera — Don Giovani — my first full opera. The female voices were great — and I usually don’t like female operatic voices all that much. From there to dinner and then to a super nice hotel downtown Toronto.

Then to sales conference all day Monday, then a meeting after work. Then home for 15 minutes to eat and head back out to my brother’s soccer game! Yikes!

It was a great time though and the first good amount of time Brian and I have had to spend together since he’s been back. It was nice to have, especially with my leaving on Friday to go to the UK for two weeks.

Just a quick question. What’s an Oil Thigh? I’ve never heard that term before

Hi Lynn — I have linked above to an explanation of the Oil Thigh: A Queen’s University tradition — to celebrate it’s Scottish roots.
