So I'm another year older/wiser.....

I don't know about older - I don't feel any older. Life is too good to feel older! Are you kidding me?
The last year has been quite a whirlwind - that's for sure! I fall deeper in love with My Man (best Boyfriend EVER!) every day, I have traveled to many far away places I never thought I would, I checked a few things off my "Things to do before I die" list, I've seen a lot of bands (some in far away places), I haven't changed my address (just yet), and my friendships grow stronger all the time! WOOHOO!!!

Maybe I'm a little wiser..... whatever... Life is FABULOUS!

I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for me!

I am celebrating the occasion with My Man, Kevin & Stephen tonight with some yummy sushi, and some yummy Martinis. Perfectly fitting - celebrating with my favourite people, favourite food, and favourite drinks! Too bad Gertie live so far away... then it would be absolutely perfect.

Thank you everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes!

I know.. I'm a BAD BAD Blogger

No, I didn't get lost in Vancouver, or get eaten by a whale...

Noreen, Zoran (the Kids) & I made it to Vancouver safe & sound. Our flight left late (not a problem for me - I was able to get a couple of cocktails into me before the flight that way), but managed to gain back the time & we landed right on time in Vancouver. We hopped in a cab downtown via Granville St. Of course it was rush-hour, and Granville is the only way in to the city (over the bridge) so it took a least the scenery is great! We finally got in to downtown Vancouver, I got Zoran & Noreen to their Hotel & waited at Johhny Fox's for Ross to arrive (and have a Martini or two!). The bar is conveniently located right beside the hotel The Kids were staying at, not to mention no further than a block away from Ross's place too. So we had some cocktails & then it was time to head-out.

Mark's brother Ross & I caught Margaret Cho's show -it was HILARIOUS!! She is one crazy-funny girl! We then went into Yaletown for some cockails. That's when I was introduced to the "Rosstini" - YUMM!!! I can't remember what exactly is in one... but I guess that's a good sign...

In the meantime, My Man was flying in from TO, and The Kids were exploring a bit of Vancouver on their own.

After a couple of those "Rosstinis" it was time to go back to Johhny Fox's to meet up with everyone else. That's My Man - Mark, Zoran and Ross. Noreen decided to crash at this point, so it was just The Boys & I. Even though we all knew we had to get up at the crack of dawn the next day, we stayed for some more cocktails.As these pictures show - we were having an awful time...

So we finally went to bed and got up at the crack of dawn to go here:

And get on one of these:

PROPS to Uncle Ross for arranging the Whale watching excursion! You ROCK Dude!
