    Cara - welcome back and congrats! can't wait to hear all about it!

    Linds - that is great to know about the plus sizes, i will have to check out Tops for sure!

    ...and as for me, i am back from camping a day early than expected. one of our friends got sick, and forgot his air mattress, so he was feeling pretty rough - so we came back to our place before he and his girlfriend went back up to Fort Mac. i was bummed, but enjoyed my own bed lastnight.

    buuuttt, we had a great time in Kananaskis! the bears were out in full force and so was the snow!! but we had fun!

      Hi Pam

      Good to hear that you had a good camping trip!!! Do go check out Tops, they had tones of plus sizes!!! When I was a Menas there was a girl looking for plus sizes and all the dresses I saw her in were beautiful too!!!! Good luck, there is lots out there. I'm still planning on going to a couple more stores that I haven't visited yet and if I see any more I will pass it on.

          i was pretty stressed about the bears - the conservation officers were out with their guns and some other campers got pics VERY close up (like 15 feet away)....i have a bit of a bear phobia, so it was pretty intense :P

          the snow hardly bothered us though! we are tough cookies!

              Hi All,

              I am actually moving to Calgary on June 7th and in the midst of planning my wedding for April 2011. It would be great to meet some friends on here. I was actually in Calgary for my first time over the long weekend! It is very different than Toronto, but I am hoping I can meet some friends soon to make the transition easier.

                    I hope you liked it while you were visiting here this past weekend. You'll be here in just a couple of weeks! I've lived here all my life so just let me know if you need to know anything about the city at all!! :)

                      Hey Natalie!
                      I moved from the GTA back on 1997 to Calgary. It is very different here, but really the same at the same time. You will find the transition fairly easy Im sure. Its really wasy to get around here - incomparison to TO.

                      Congrats on the engagement and I hope all goes well with the move!
                      If you need someone to hang with give me a shout!
