My Life is like a Rollercoaster

Everybody Now! Put Your Arms up! Wheeewww!

The past 2 weeks have been rough for Greg and I. We have been dragged through the ringer by Apartment Manager and UW Pharmacy School. With an extra bounce in our step, we have a place call home. However, the apt. Mngr never replied back and when he did the apt. was given to somebody else. Booo!

UW pharm told me that I may have a chance, being that I was #3 on the waiting list. Since then I have been on pins and needles. I called this past Monday and told me that they were calling the other two the same day. I called yesterday and office people went home. Bah! I decided to show up today at 8am hopeing I will be in the 8:30am class.

In the end, we are moving this coming weekend (29th) and I started the application for next year. I missed Pharm school by one person. On the bright side, there are plenty of clams out there.

Just Got Married

Phew! The wedding day went really well. With all the help from friends and professionals, the day went smooth and was a lot of fun. We went to Vancouver, BC for 2 nights and took the bus into Victoria, where we stayed at The Fairmont Empress. It was fantastic! They treated us really well. We felt like a King and Queen.

Here is our photographers blog post: enjoy some of the wedding photos. :)

An International Affair

When Adam and I arrived at The Hall at Fauntleroy to be a part of Cheryl and Greg's wedding, we noticed that brides and grooms tend to do different things to get ready for their big days. The second photos down were photographed by each of us exactly 3 minutes apart!

This wedding was one to remember. There were guests from around the world (Greg's Australian and Cheryl has family from China) and the bride and groom made sure that every guest was entertained the whole night long. After the beautiful garden ceremony, we also had some time to head with the bridal party to play at Lincoln Park in West Seattle.

One of the fun things they did, and i believe is Chinese tradition, is that they went around to each table to greet their guests and let them offer up toasts. The toasts ranged from touching to hilarious (even some skits with blindfolds).

It was also great to run into some old friends during the day. Yuli and Michael (bottom picture, far left couple) were a former bride and groom of ours from last year and it was great to sit and have dinner with them and catch up! We also got to work again with the fabulous DJ duo Jason and TJ from Tune City who kept everyone dancing until the very end.

Congrats to this great couple!
