GTKY Monday - Toronto Edition

*This is also posted on the general Canada Board*

OK, I've been a neglectful Mod - I apologize.  I moved a month ago and I'm taking a course, and my day to day teaching has consumed my life - the usual!  It's March Break and although I still have a ton to do (except teach), I need to make some time for my Knotties!  So, let's catch up!

1. How many days or months or years until your wedding left?
2. What was your most recent wedding-related project and how did it go?
3. What is your next wedding-related project and what needs to be done to accomplish it?
4. Outside of wedding stuff, anything exciting going on in your life with family, work, etc.?

Wedding season is quickly approaching for 2011 - so exciting!  Any new brides-to-be out there who want to say hello?

    So I don't have any wedding-related stuff for myself as I have been married for just over 7 months, but there are lots of other things going on in my life.  

    As mentioned above, I moved almost a month ago.  We moved out of our rented condo right downtown and now are living in Danforth Village (Danforth & Woodbine) in a semi-detached house.  It was move-in ready (as in no necessary projects), but we are doing a lot of updates.  We are starting in the basement, making an office and library out of the bare empty room.  We are doing the living/dining room next with a built-in sideboard covered in quartz for a nice serving surface and storage space, plus paint and some new furniture.  We got a PAX wardrobe for the bedroom since the closets are tiny, and are going to paint the bedroom and get new bedding too.  Lots of little projects, one room at a time - very exciting!

    Work teaching is good, and I'm taking my honours specialist in Chemistry (I teach chem currently, and this is just an upgrade course to incorporate more teaching skills to my classes, not to mention it bumps me up a pay grade when I finish).  This course has been taking up a lot of my time for the past 6 weeks (like 3 hours a day, not kidding), but only one month to go!   Also the vocal director for my school play, Aladdin, which shows the first week of April, so that takes up a few hours after school each night too, hence the crazy busy life!  I have to go in this week on my break to start painting the set!

    Next fun thing is a 10 day mediterranean cruise with DH's family in August.  We'll be there during our 1 year anniversary which will be fun!

    So now you know more about my hectic life - fill me in with yours! :)

    1. How many days or months or years until your wedding left? ~ 5 months

    2. What was your most recent wedding-related project and how did it go?  Registering at The Bay... it was painful deciding on our china/dishes!  Other than that, the assistant lady was very helpful and patient with us though.

    3. What is your next wedding-related project and what needs to be done to accomplish it?  Guys' attire - picking a store, getting a "deal", and picking tie/vest colours.

    Super late to the game, but I'd like to play!

    1. How many days or months or years until your wedding left?
    Just over a year to go.
    2. What was your most recent wedding-related project and how did it go?
    Met with an officiant last night.  I thought we could wait a while but I emailed a couple of people just in case and one was already booked for our date, so we figured we had better get on it!

    We need to pick our DJ -we are trying to decide between two and I have no idea who to choose.  The music is so important to us and I don't want to mess it up!

    Besides wedding stuff life is pretty hectic.  I've got a five month old who demands attention almost every second of the day!
