My first blog post and sending the BF off...

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Wow, this is weird...I'm actually writing a blog post! Let's just say that this is an extremely NEW venture for me. As most of you know, I've never had the desire to start a blog until now. Since I'll be away from all of you very soon, I've developed an urge to keep everyone updated with mine and Justin's new life in Calgary. So, it starts HERE I guess! =)

I'm just going to think of these posts as emails or IM chats to all of you. So we can throw grammar and some spelling out the window now coz you know that my casual correspondence are usually improper. But if you'd like to make fun of my grammar and spelling, please do so in the comments so that I know you guys are actually reading my blog posts! haha!

Anyways, so Justin took off for Calgary yesterday (Aug 6, 2012) in his new ride: Toyota FJ Cruiser

Nice eh? Yup, he's leaving his beloved VW GTI in the garage and will be driving this monster around in Calgary. How fitting for Calgary driving, don't you think?! It's actually the "company" car that his parents are letting us use to get around in Calgary. Insurance and gas paid for as well since it's a company car. Yay! We'll be taking my handy-dandy Nissan Versa with us, but I think we'll be driving the FJ around more often. I'm pretty stoked...and I'm sure you can tell that Justin is too! Can't wait to take this thing off-roading! LOL! J/K!

It took Justin and his parents about 11-12 hours yesterday to drive from Burnaby to Calgary. He said that there was crazy traffic on the highway from the long weekend. So bad that they were at standstills for a few spots! I hope we don't run into that kind of traffic when we drive after Labour Day long weekend. He also encountered a crazy lightning show. Here's his Instagram pic:

Apparently that happens lots in Calgary. He mentioned that with Calgary's big sky, we'd also experience the Northern Lights once in a while! How awesome is that! I guess that's what you get when you live in the mid-west. I promise to take photos of that if I ever get the experience it. Supposedly it happens between September and April.

So yes, I will be without boyfriend until Aug 30 when he flies back to Vancouver for Leo and Cat's wedding that weekend. This is the longest we've been apart I believe! Not like we see each other that often anyways when we are in the same city, but still...I'll miss the guy lots! But that means I'll have lots of time to hang out with my family and friends before I leave, so make sure to hit me up for a dinner/lunch/hangout date! =)

Well, that is all for my first post! Woohoo! Your feedback is always welcome, so please comment and let me know if you like the blog or not. Let me know what you think of the colours too. I kinda like the super girly-ness of this template. I feel like it's ME, but if you have any other ideas, I'd love to hear them! Also, if you have any blog post ideas, send me a quick email or something. I'm accepting all ideas right now. Alrighty, well, thanks for reading! Till my next post...

Oh Danielle...another milestone to the eventual (and saddening) departure towards a new life and career in a whole different city. I can't express how proud I am of you taking this new leap with Justin. I love you and I love Justin for kick starting this new chapter in your lives, and I can't wait to read all about your new adventures.

Love your BFF,
