    Hey girls, a get together would be fantastic!!!! I live in the south but work downtown, it really doesn't matter to me. Melrose or Ceili's would be great. Has anyone been to Hudson's on 12th Ave SW It's the old Husky house. I've been quite a few times and really liked it. Just a thought
    Looking to share a photographer the middle of Feb 2011 in Holguin Cuba

        Thanks ladies :)
        What colour are you looking for? I've got dark purple ones that I'm going to be posting for sale soon if that might work for you? Otherwise it sounds like you've got a few leads so hopefully they work out for you!

        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!
        It was ME who mentioned Mena's before and that's where I bought my dress. The girl there was super nice!

        And we had bears in our campground last year as well out near Golden. It was dark so no one really realized they were even walking through until a) someone spotted them and B) some dogs were barking and we had to scramble to round up our friends dog who loves to wander through everyone else's site for a visit! The bears left quite peacefully and we all wished that it hadn't been so dark so that we could get pictures!!

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.

        Welcome Natalie! I saw your second post that mentioned you are originally from Oakville - my grandparents have lived there longer than I've been alive! I really like it there. I lived in Burlington for a long time and St Catharines too but have been here in Calgary for about 6 years now. I think it's really easy to get used to the city here, but maybe harder to get used to all the amazing open space *outside* the city!! Anyone who's born and raised here just can't picture driving for six hrs and never leaving the city (like driving from Niagara to Kingston) while people from southern ontario who have never been here can't imagine driving 20 minutes and being completely out of the city. I think you'll be surprised at the number of people living here who have come out from Ontario... every manager I've had in my office came from there at some point!

        And p.s. June 7 is a GREAT day to move... happens to be my birthday LOL!

        Just a thought, but if a lot of us work here in downtown would a lunch date interest anyone?? I figure that if we all have different times that we'd be finished work or don't want to worry about traffic etc then maybe we could go somewhere in Eau Claire or on Stephen Ave one day?

          I am so easy going, especially since I am fresh to the city and probably won't have much on the go but a lot of spare time (which will be consumed with decorating FI's place, which is very dull right now, and planning my wedding)! I think with everyone's crazy schedules we should just pick two alternative dates and then narrow it down to the most popular choice. 17th ave sounds great...I think I was there last weekend. What about either Wednesday, June 16th or Thursday, June 17th?
          Meghan - Happy Early Birthday!!!!

          Looking forward to meeting everyone and having new friends!

            A get together does sound great, I second the lunch idea, although I am pretty flexible, I work downtown and live in Coach Hill. FI and I are off to New York for a week on June 16th, but some time late June / early July (yes I know I am super lame with this hectic schedule) would be fantastic - then again who plans a lunch a month in advance? oh well, hope to join you ladies. Happy planning and stay dry!

              I work outside of the city, so a lunch date wont work for me unless it is on a Thrusday as that is my day off.
              But I am game if it should still work.
