Pre-Turkey Dinner Brain Dump + GIVEAWAY

Thought I'd do a little housekeeping (aka talk about myself and the biggest week yet for this little blog) before I headed north for the weekend to drool over the fall colours and celebrate a beautiful friend's wedding, and then come home to stuff my goblet with Thanksgiving dinner.

So, in no particular order,

I survived my second week at work and taking public transit. Had my first problem solving task this morning when my bus decided not to show up. Minor panic attack, but acted like a big girl and handled it nicely AND made it to work on time. Bonus. As for work, I promise I will have pictures REAL soon. Trust me, it's been very hard to resist grammin' them. For those in the Toronto area, I can officially announce that the Aquarium will be opening Wednesday, October 16 (time TBA)! So exciting, and trust me, you don't want to miss it.

Did you check out my guest post over at Life of a Sports Wife? Jessa is a pretty cool chick for allowing me to post about something I don't often talk about, my "hockey life". 

I was nominated for not one but TWO blog awards this week. Wow!  First off, I was nominated for a Liebster Award from Emilie at Daily Emilie and a then the Sunshine Award from Sarah at Sweet Happening. Sarah is a fellow Guelph grad/Toronto-ite, so that makes her super cool :)  How does it work? They ask a series of random questions and I answer.  Stay tuned for a little "get to know me better" post next week.

Every Friday Jessica at This Analog Adventure hosts an amazing Photography Friday linkup. And obviously I can't ignore that! This week yours truly was her featured photographer. NBD. But seriously, she's a fellow Ontario girl so please go over and give her some love.

And last, but definitely not least, this month I have teamed up with Postcards From Rachel and all her sponsors to offer you a Paypal giveaway involving cash. How much cash, you ask? $210 to be exact!  My the things you could do with $210. This giveaway is open internationally so follow the prompts on the Rafflecopter widget below. One winner will be chosen (and verified) on Monday, October 21st. Good luck and thanks for your support!
Here's to hoping it stays sunny!
