that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

home home and shakespeare (let me know if you see it now)


Just throwing this out there… while I absolutely love literature and everything that goes along with that, I am hating my Shakespeare class. My prof really engages in the plays. He will act out every character…himself…and teaches with a perma-smile on his face. But that’s as far as it goes. I am just hating it. Just throwing that out there. ANYWAYS… Here’s an updated look at our place! Excuse the quantity, I just want you to feel like you are in my house with me! Check ‘er out:

Dining area…that’s the trim leaning on the wall that still needs to be put up.

There we go!! Nice hey?
Fridge and ample counter space!

Our fantastic granite countertops!

The full effect. PS I don’t recommend getting this colour of laminate flooring. It may LOOK nice but dust and dirt just LOVE it.

Living room… yes, I do use the exercise ball.

Living room and our main entrance. I love all the windows..

My fabulous, fabulous couch/loveseat/ottoman. You all need to come sit on them!

….here’s to hoping this gets hooked up soon! Then Scott won’t have to pray for me about doing laundry at their house anymore! 🙂

(we’re neighbours!)

Look! Dan’s room has carpet! 🙂 Dad and Marli came down and put all his stuff in there… now he needs to show up soon!

Dan’s part two.

Oh look, there it is again!

Come on in… it’s Kate’s room! (My closet is long and awesome!)

My first fantastic purchase… my brand new queen sized bed! I love it! (Since had been sleeping on Auntie Anita’s OLD bed prior to this.. it is doubly unreal!)

My desk from Wal-Mart… my second greatest purchase. This has a ‘leaf’ that pulls out so I can study on the right side with an empty desktop and get all digital on the left there!

Looking into the ‘hallway’ from my closet.

Our tile in the bathroom… everything together makes it look super spunky.

The bathroom… sure makes me think yellow is a nice colour!

Just had to put this in… this is the LIGHT that is in the shower. Fun hey?

YES it IS that clean ALL the time…!!! Sorry none of Adrienne’s room, she spends a LOT of time SLEEPING. 😉

Whew! Don’t you feel like you just came over? I even bought Coca Cola for guests (I don’t drink the stuff) so come on down! Actually, BREAKING NEWS another reason to love living in VICTORIA? NANA is coming for a month!! Hello, good food and more hours needed at the gym!

I’ve had a few sentimental ‘i miss Kate’ moments at the uni. but I’m very excited that you’re coming to Alberta… We’ll have to figure something out – because I must see you. Especially since I”m guessing you wont be in smithers for the holidays. You have a super long reading break?! Give Makenna a little cuddle for me.
