Sleep? Who needs sleep?

Phew! What I weekend! There was so much running around it was crazy! It was all for a good cause though....

For over 10 years some wonderful men for the Pontiac community have been putting on a hockey tournament in order to raise money for local charities. This is called, The Flying Elbows Tournament. It's a Thursday to Sunday event featuring great hockey games, fun visits and a late night party at the bar above the arena. I just wanted to give a quick shout out to all the men that helped with this event.....Way to go for organizing this for such a great cause!!

Friday evening, right after work, we loaded up the jeep and headed to friend's, Lisa and Luc's for a birthday supper for their 3 year old son, Yanni.

I can hardly believe this little guy is 3 and I can't believe his Mommy, Lisa, put on a great spaghetti supper for family and friends with Yanni and month of baby Sydney in her arms!

After, Ryan and I headed to the arena to watch hockey! It ended up being a fun (a little too fun for me) evening!

Saturday morning I woke up early and headed off to do groceries! I haven't gotten any food in 3 weeks! Surprisingly enough, the store was actually empty so I got to zoom around the aisles in record time!

Afterwards, I was meeting this wonderful girl, for a lunch date to show off my new bling!!

We had an amazing lunch and great visit, talking all things wedding related!

Saturday evening, it was back to the rink for the big game. The Flying Elbows Vs. The Chainsaws!

Every year this rivalry of friends play for the championship belt and bragging rights. Unfortunately, (Ryan's a Chainsaw) The Elbows took the victory for the 2nd year in a row!

That evening I had a blast sitting around one of the tables at the bar above the arena! Sue, Jill and I spent most of that time playing movie music trivia! You sing a song from a movie, and the other people have to guess the movie! We were getting some strange looks from other tables! ha ha!

Sunday morning, after church, mom and I headed to the city for a very important meeting.....with a wedding photographer!!

I had found Julie C Bulter's website and blog right after I got engaged and was constantly going back and checking it out more! Finally, I contacted her to ask if she was willing to drive the hour to come to this small town, for this small town girls wedding. She said yes!

The meeting went fabulously and this girl and her work is AMAZING! I cannot wait to meet with her again for our engagement photos!! Thank you Julie!

I am so happy to cross something else off of my long list of wedding to-do's!

Well, as I said, busy weekend but wonderful! It was literally a weekend packed full but the best part is that most of the time I was doing stuff with family or friends! In my mind, it's a perfect way to pass a weekend!
