I can’t believe it taken me so long to write about this. Mind you, every single 17 days of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics has been a whirlwind, and life seems comparably dull now that it has come and gone. It would have been much easier if I did a few posts throughout the Olympics, but alas, I am doing it all in one long … Continue reading My 2010 Olympic Experience
In honour of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games coming to Vancouver, I thought I should do a blog post somewhat dedicated to the event. I’m getting pretty amped for the Games to start in February, and I thought this might help some of those people who maybe aren’t that excited about the Olympics (yet). I have had this version of O Canada by Classified running … Continue reading O Canada!
A little while ago I told you about working for my brother Wes, and doing his marketing, well, I’m also working with my brother Jordan at Tell Ten Friends. I know. It’s complicated. But our family makes a really great team. It’s not always a “great minds think alike” situation, but we all bring something valuable to the table and we work well together. At … Continue reading Tell Ten Friends. Do it.
Some of you may have already heard that I recently started working part-time for my older brother Wesley, who is a real estate agent for RE/MAX Crest Realty Westside. I am assisting with his marketing efforts, including everything from social networking sites, e-mail newsletters, and design projects like postcards and other direct mail pieces. My first project as Wes’ new Marketing Manager (I totally just … Continue reading Shaking things up
After a pretty lame Saturday, I decided that I better do something productive with my Sunday. So I did. I ran 10.6km at Burnaby Lake with my good friends Liz and Di, and I went for a walk and did some shopping with my friend Sheralyn downtown, taking photos all along the way. I felt like I had been neglecting my camera lately, so I … Continue reading Granville Island Night Photowalk
On October 3rd, I attended my 2nd BarCamp. Last year’s BarCamp – I can’t believe it’s already been a year! – was my first ever “un-conference.” What the heck is an un-conference? (Am I right?) Well, it’s basically an event that doesn’t get organized until you show up. Although, it is planned by a small group of people who actually attend BarCamp, my brother being … Continue reading BarCamp Vancouver 2009
The other night I went out with my Dad, brothers, Grandpa, uncles, and male cousins to a BC Lions game. Someone took this photo of my Grandpa Glenn and I, and after seeing it on my camera, he said, “Put it on the internet!” That just cracked me up. My Grandpa is the king of gadgets. He’s the hardest person to buy gifts for, because … Continue reading My Grandpa
I have been unbelievably lazy with blogging lately, and I’d like to blame it on being really busy doing fun stuff. Most of my weekends this summer have been spent out of town, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It’s so nice to get out of the city once in awhile, and to spend time with friends and family. Anyway, rather than … Continue reading Summer 2009 in Pictures
On Tuesday, June 30th, I’m going to helping out at a really exciting event called Blubird Royale. It’s a ladies only casino themed party, sponsored by Blubird Clothing and hosted at V Lounge at Earls Yaletown. My sister-in-law‘s good friend and professional female poker player, Lacey Jones, will be in attendance and giving poker lessons to any ladies who are interested. (If you’re looking for … Continue reading Blubird Royale, Fashion & Casino Night
Just recently, I was fortunate enough to be a bridesmaid in the most amazing wedding I have ever experienced. My best friend, Jerra Pexton, married the love of her life, Dale Lupul, on Sunday, June 7, 2009, in a beautiful ceremony held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Many of the guests were there for a few days arriving on June 5th … Continue reading The most beautiful Las Vegas Wedding
