Where Have I Been?

Tonight I was talking with some fellow bloggers (did I just say that?) and I realized why I have not posted since December 16th. I have actually been out…doing things. haha. But seriously, I have had a really great Christmas break. We had Christmas with Brandon and Lindsay which was just great – they woke up in the morning with us and everything.

After Christmas I had some amazing adventures. And now in real Bec Shulba style, I am going to give you the whole story complete with photo gallery. Both Matt and I got cameras for Christmas. Oh yes...
….Canucks….
On the 27th, Stefanie Fraser phones me up and says “I have hockey tickets, want to go?”. And I basically could not even handle myself. I went to the Canucks for 30 dollars. It was phenomenal. My favorite part is when the whole crowd of grown adults cheers “Calgary sucks” or chants the goalie’s last name “KIP-PER”. We may have signed up for a Canucks Mastercard simply for the free blanket. But c’mon, it’s a cool blanket…


...Joanna Beaver Reunion…
I hadn’t seen this beautiful women in over a year, and it was due time. This is my wonderful friend from LA who overflows with warmth and grace. It was a short visit, but it was amazing. We had yet another random Capernwray fun time. I stayed with Christy Childers, who has been gracious enough to host me TWICE in the past two weeks on my random jaunts to Seattle. I also saw Eric Pauls, Whitney, Dan, and of course the wonderful Kelly Kettles. Such great times. I am so blessed by the continued interaction with these Capernwray friends.


….Oregon Coast….
So after my time in Seattle with the ladies, Matt came up and met me and we took a little drive to the Oregon coast. Yea, I know, pretty random, but great times. We kicked it in Cannon Beach, which was JUST beautiful. The sun came out for us and shone through our whole beach walk.

….New Years at Margaret’s Cabin...
So this year, I finally got in on the New Years Cabin action, that I had missed due to lame-o Starbucks shifts in past years. Margaret’s cabin is just outside of Seattle, so we had New Years, American style. Which really, is the same as Canadian style. The best part about it was that the countdown was so arbitrary. We just based it off someone’s watch, and decided we should probably pay attention to New Years. After the countdown, we all joined in singing (twice) Auld Lang Syne. For some reason, Brenda had memorized the words. I guess that isn’t really a shocker. All in all, a great time, avoiding the trumped up New Years parties, and enjoying the evening with good friends. Little word of advice, you don’t know how insane your friends are until they play Mafia together.


Now, if you made it this far - I am very impressed. If you want more pictures, don't worry, I will post more when my life gets lame again.
