3. I used to be an air cadet. (Fun fact: I went to orientation with my friend because she liked a guy who was flight sergeant. I loved the aspect of cadets so I joined that night. My friend did not join. Actually I was the only one of our friends who signed up for cadets)

4. One of my fav movies is, Baby Cakes

Long weekend--about damn time

Finally, it is a long weekend. So well deserved on this end. All I have planned is a visit from my sisters and lots of laughs, good food and loads of fun.

Then back to packing. Yep, that's right. I am moving...again. I am out of this small town and back to the GTA. I could not be happier to be moving back to my home. More to come on that.

I will try to take some pictures this weekend to highlight my hopeful, joy. Chat with you then.
