July Wrap-Up

Troy... Just Planking around the house.
Jeff T. left for Zurich last Sunday, but not before sharing 2 bottles of Patron with 50 of his closest friends.
Troy and Me taking down the dance floor at Emily and Tyler's wedding last Saturday.

I can't resist picking up tiny humans.

Sunday... snack on Earls patio/browse around Kits...

Dinner at Lolitas and then a walk down to English Bay...

Today- A book and iced coffee at Coo Coo. Love it.

My Weekend

This last weekend was a bit of a whirlwind!
On Friday night Troy treated me and a group of friends to the Tragically Hip Concert playing at Deer Lake Park and I spent Saturday up in Whistler for Lauren's stagette... Sunday was supposed to be low key, but Troy and I went for dinner and bottomless glasses of wine at Pete and Shannon's... so needless to say we have been partying non-stop.

Both of us are doing our best to catch up on some much needed sleep before Friday where we will likely do it all again ;)

Part of our crew getting picked up in the limo... Matte Black, but who's asking?

Deer Lake Park- so amazing!
Thanks Troy xo

Lauren's Stagette!
Scandanave Spa in Whistler. A.MAZING!

The Life of Kate & Troy

I really need to start taking a real camera out to capture our nights a little better... Luckily the two iPhones in our family manage to document quite a lot of our shenanigans!
Here are some pictures from the last couple of weeks:

Night at the Mackie's where my skills as Vancouver's Official Matchmaker were put to the test once again! See the man in the blue shirt= latest "catch"!

Weighing Troy.
With the sunglasses left on he came in at a cool 158lbs.
Triathlete's bod :)

Last Friday night was our friend Kristi's 30th Birthday... Her boyfriend organized a BBQ at the beach- A perfect way to end the week.

Late into the evening I'm attempting to crawl inside Alsy's pant leg....

And Troy makes idle chat with Chip (wearing no pants)...

Callie and Mike had us over for dinner at their new house last Tuesday night.
5 bottles of wine later....
Troy makes a fruit fly trap.

Weekend Reading

With the last couple of days being warm and sunny outside, I have been taking some time in the day to find the sunniest coffee shop in Yaletown to read...

These are some books currently on my radar:

I just finished Water for Elephants and loved the fictional storyline interwoven with the true stories of the circus culture. The author, Sara Gruen, is also from Vancouver which makes it even better.

Recommended by my Mom and soon to be made into a movie... I have heard nothing but great things about this book.

Just started reading this one after Troy heard it was good and bought it for me and my Mom. So far I am into it.

What are you reading?
