Well, this past weekend they predicted snow, and I was skeptical to be honest. But, this is the view outside of my living room window this morning. It is absolutely beautiful. I am happy though that this big batch of snow fell on the weekend, as it awful to commute in this weather. So, my hope is to enjoy the beautiful view today, and have it all washed away by the morning for driving to work.
January has been quite busy for me. I have had a lot of parent teacher interiviews after school or before school, my new class that is now on Thursdays, and all the regular routines that are up and running. I can't get over how difficult it is to get into a new routine. However, this past week, I was starting to feel more in a routine.
Julie and I did some scrapbooking on Friday night. That was a lot of fun, and we are trying to get into this routine again as well. However, I didn't get very many pages done, as I was cricuting for Julie. But the one page I completed are these two layouts here. We are working on our Alaska Cruise pictures. My goal is to have it finished before the year anniversary of the cruise. Who knows if this will happen, but I will certainly give it a shot.

I am pleased to announce that I am Engaged. It all happened on December 29th 2007 up at Harrison Hot Springs.
Andrei surprised me with a trip to Harrison Hot Springs for the weekend. He said it was a treat after all the school (Master's Program) work and work I had in December, since I was getting pretty run down. I thought great idea. Friday night we settled into the hotel and then went to the hot spring pool. Andrei said he had a surprise for me later in the day, so I didn't think anything of it. In hindsight, I should have seen the clues, but after a year of dating we talked a little about getting married, and he said there would be no proposal unitl at least a year and a half. He wasn't himself on Friday night really or Saturday, he kept zoning out, as I could tell he was thinking about something. At this point, I still had no idea what.
Saturday afternoon after our walk to the Hot Springs, Andrei said he had a surprise for me. The surprise ended up being a two hour treatment to a spa. He gave me a facial and a body massage, what a treat that was, I came back so refreshed. Then he casually said that the plan was to go for dinner and then a walk to the beach, as with the cool weather we had not really spent anytime outside. That all seemed reasonable. So, after dinner he took me to the beach, and we were talking and walking just like normal (reminicing really). But, it seemed fitting since it was so close to the end of the year. We started to turn around, and then we stopped at a little undercover area. He pretended to tie his shoe, and then he took my hand, and then proposed in the light rain and snow down on one knee. It couldn't have been any more romantic I think. We both cried and hugged. The ring is beautiful, he has said that he went to 50 different stores to find the perfect ring. I absolutely love it, and I am now very excited about introducing my Fiancee to everyone!
