I wouldn't mind a cross-country move. Sometimes I feel like the ILs impose too much since we're so accessible to them here. I know that sounds awful but MIL isn't fond of me lol.

phew!.. obviously you know how i feel about this thread now.. kinda foolish since i feel a little dooped! haha!... its ok we can make it a happy thread...

 

its true though... i grew up out west for my summers so i was exposed to helping my uncle out on his farm and spending time with my grandparents at their store in town!!.. I think that is where i picked up my 'down to earth' demeanor!!... i guess im just greatfull to have experienced that area of Canada in such a positive way!

Jax - Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed but at least, like you said, we can turn this in to something positive! Are your grandparents from a small town here? I grew up in a town north-east of Edmonton with a population of 6,000 (4,000 in the municipal district though). So I know what you mean. I lived on an acreage til I was 18....fed the cows and all that "fun" stuff haha.

hehe.. my grandparents actually live in SASK... in a small town with a population of about 1000!!!... but alot of my relatives live in Alberta and so i went there alot to visit too!!.. i kind of group manitoba, sask, and alberta together because they all seem to value the same things... and thats where all of my dad's side of the family lives!!

We did this. We moved from England to Canada in 1984. We are the only ones from both sides of our families in Canada, although my Dad is in the USA now. We moved because my husband was offered a job and we figured why not try it? I was three months pregnant when we moved and we arrived in January.

We lived in a hotel for a couple of months whilst we found somewhere to live, a car to drive, got appropriate clothing etc. All we had with us was clothes although we did have a few bits and pieces shipped. We had to buy furniture and appliances once we got the house, but the company my husband was working for helped us out with lots of stuff.

It's been an adventure but there isn't too much I'd change!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
