What a day. So much for spin classes in the past two months. Damage done!
I have a ton of photos and can't wait to share them with you. Here are just a few from Wednesdays tour.
Apple Ice wine - we sampled five different vasrieties.
If you win the lottery you might want to stay here at Hotel St James. Celine Dion likely does if she is in town....or maybe with reletives. Very expensive - tour guide said the most exclusiive hotel in Quebec.

This was today's to do list and I got through all the important stuff.
Gym?? likely not
cut Harold's hair
Mark's bedroom ready
Paul and Allie bedroom ready
basement bathroom cleaned
be home for wedding cake delivery -pay
Florist #1 - drop off ribbon and pay bill
Florist #2 - give boutonniere and corsage count and pay bill
Pick up table cloths at Canadian Linen
pick up glasses and pay at Party World
pick up steamed wedding dress
final fitting and pick up for my dress
oil change for Mazda
Costco run for easy food for all these people
Mark home for supper.
It all went smoothly... except the fitting at Brides and Belles. My wedding advice?? They have nice stuff there but do NOT go for the alterations. They messed up on my dress twice - and still insisted on charging me. I am hoping my seamstress neighbor can help me out. Linda, my neighbor, did all Allison's wedding dress alterations and they are PERFECT.
I elected to let Brides and Bells do my dress alterations - mistake!! You live, you learn. I had no energy or time to argue with them. sigh....
BUT, my brilliant red/pink toe nails look fabulous!!
AND I found the most gorgeous jewelry at Crush on 2nd Ave north almost at 33rd - they have such cool stuff!! We got something for the bride too - that was a fun Wednesday - first we visited La Senza and then we bought our jewelry - gave the VISA another workout!
Tonight I got to hug Mark after his drive through a winter storm in Northern Manitoba and tomorrow I get to hug Paul and Allie who arrive from Victoria.
The wedding cake is gorgeous!!! Sorry no pictures yet.
Still haven't got the bubbly for the toast...sigh again.
I am off to make tomorrow's to do list. Good news is that we can set up at the reception hall anytime tomorrow so I will be over their early to make sure all goes well.

There was some pretty hot stuff tonight! Kendal said that she thought Sammy should write the thank you notes! I couldn't agree more!
There are gerber daisies everywhere around here! And it is kinda pretty. It'll all be over... (and just beginning for two love birds)... in one week.
