Great Big Shin-Dig

Last weekend Mr. Perfect and I went to Halifax for a fundraising event called the The Great Big Dig for the IWK. It’s a yearly event organised by the construction industry to raise funds for the IWK Children’s Hospital. Mr. Perfect’s company had sponsored a table so we attended with his co-workers and their spouses. We had such a great time and his coworkers were really lovely. It was a nice chance to get away, dress up and enjoy a wonderful 6-course meal... which included lots of wine, of course.:-) Although we forgot to take pictures during the event, we did manage to get a few shots with the self-timer after we the event. Not the best pictures, but we still looking smashing! :-P

And for the record, my hand is NOT grabbing anything!! Hey, I think this is the first time Mr. Perfect has been revealed!

The return to the real world was not as fun. Of course, there is the return to the books with two exams and two projects awaiting me, but there was also a sad phone call to be had. A friend of mine from NG called to tell me one of my colleagues from Sobeys, Harley, had been killed in motorcycle accident on Saturday. I was in shock. He was only in his mid-thirties with two young children. His poor family. :-( He will be deeply missed by everyone.

Happy Belated Halloween!

My Mom bought this for Pacha a few weeks ago. As she says... it's for the kids (insert eye roll here). What can I say, she makes a cute pumpkin. Even Mr. Perfect thought she looked cute... but he still refused to bring her for a walk in her costume. :-)
