Us at Lake Louise

Shane and I on our Johnston Canyon hike

Flowers from Shane for our anniversary

New Job, Anniversary, and Birthday!

So as you can tell we had a crazy week all rolled into one.  It was a lot of fun though!  I went and interviewed with a company called the Concorde Entertainment Group.  It is interesting how the Lord has His hand in all things.  They are a company who own many restaurants and I happened to apply to their head office in my mass sending of resumes.  I had 2 interviews and was told that they would get back to me.  I hadn't heard so I phoned them and a couple of days later received a phone call back.  I got the job!  I started 2 days later Thursday the 7th.  

Shane's parents always go away for their anniversary, and Shane feels like we need to do the same.  I am TOTALLY fine with that!  He picked me up from work downtown and we headed up to Banff National Park.  It was so much fun!  It was nice to just be able to relax and enjoy not working or doing anything for that matter.  I love the TLC channel so much.  We don't have it on our t.v. but they had it in our hotel, so I spent my fare share of time watching the different shows on there.  The next morning we woke up and it was our anniversary!  I can't believe that it has been a whole entire year that we have been married.  It has been absolutely blissful!  We went to McDonalds for breakfast and then we headed up to Johnson Canyon.  We hiked and saw some waterfalls.  It was a really fun hike!  We really enjoyed ourselves.  After the hike we went to Lake Louise.  It is a very famous attraction in Canada.  It was pretty, but still frozen and had a bit of snow around it (we live in Canada people).  After the Lake we headed back and went to lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory.  YUMMY!!!!  We shopped for a bit and then it was back to our hotel for a nap!!!!!  It was great!  We went to a late dinner at the Keg.  It was absolutely delicious!  We woke up Sunday and went to the Banff Branch.  It was really small, but we were grateful that we could go to church!  It was a nice anniversary weekend to say the least.  

I am finally 21!  Not that it means anything up here because 18 is "legal!"  The night before my Birthday we went shopping and got me some new clothes.  I got some really cute things.  The best part about my job is that it is part time.  I work from 10-3 with a paid lunch.  It is great!  I can sleep in until about 8:30 and then get ready to go.  Work was fun on my special day.  They had cake for me and sang to me and everything!  What a great office!  I came home to my AVON order and sorted it and got things all ready.  That is my life every other Tuesday and I love it!  Shane came home with Pizza Hut Pizza.  It was what I had asked for!  It was really yummy.  He then made my birthday cake.  Fun Fetti cake with Rainbow chunk icing (I am really picky about cake to be honest).  He did a fabulous job!  Needless to say, a relaxing day all for me!
