I just had to add that I love the pic of your boxer!!! We've got a brindle female and I don't think we'll ever have any other breed! Ok well I'm pulling for a boston terrier, but they're just boxers in smaller bodies. LOVE my boxers!

Yay for Oakville! My grandparents still live there, and I lived in Burlington On, as well as St.Catharines On all during my schooling. But I was born in Calgary and lived there when I was young and have lived back here in Calgary for another four years or so.... it would be hard for me to move away. FI is from Brandon MB and sometimes tries to convince me to move back there. Maybe one day. But I told him there needs to be two horses added to the deal... think it'll work? huh.gif

Hi Gals,

 

My name is Jennifer and I was born and raised in Hamilton (aka the Hammer) Ontario. Lived there for 18 years and moved to Calgary for school in 1997. Lived in Calgary for 9 years and then moved out of the city to get away the crazy traffic! Have lived in Crossfield, Airdire and now Mountain View County (near Didsbury).

Nice to see this thread on here.

Congrats and happy planning!

LOVE Canada! Can't say that I have been very far east, but plan to do so in the future.

My FI and I are both from Medicine Hat, Alberta. We moved away for years, but are back home and LOVING it!

Plan to buy a lot of my wedding stuff in Calgary, so if anyone has a favorite store.....please share!

Check with your FI and see if he knows the Speers. Geoff (my FI) is 25 and his brother Garrett is 29 I think. It seems that most people know someone in his family, but then again it is Brandon!!!

He said his gr.3 teacher was a mrs. Speers? Hes 27 though so right in b/w them, and thought Geoff rang a bell but wasnt sure. He's one of the 'Griffith Twins' (seems to be how they are know), Jesse. Not sure if your FI would know him?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
