Having been inspired by 'Chelle's most recent post, I've decided I should give folks the lowdown on what I've been up to.

Had a lovely long weekend a couple of weeks ago in the Calgary area, with the CBB. The catalyst for getting us up there was his aunt & uncle's (who also happen to be his godparents) 50th wedding anniversary. WOW, does he come from a big extended family! There must've been 80 relatives there, most of whom seem to have heard that I existed, and were all anxious to meet me. They couldn't have been nicer or more welcoming.

I finally got to meet the CBB's other 2 brothers, both of whom I adored (as I was sure I would), and I met some of the aunts/uncles and cousins that I've heard stories of. It was a lovely evening, and makes me ever more certain that I'm making the right choice by keeping this Cute Blonde Boy in my life.

We stayed in Canmore, which I though was closer to banff than it is, but I imagine it was very nice anyway. The weather didn't cooperate, and the presumably gorgeous mountains were shrouded in fog and clouds most of the time. I'll upload some pictures at some point, and put those up. It's a matter of when.

The one downer to the weekend was -- oddly enough -- the B&B lady. You can see my opinion, posted for any other traveler who cares to look, on TripAdvisor.

The CBB has offered to host Thanksgiving at his place (which actually has room for more than 3 people to mingle without being elbow-to-elbow), which tickles me pink. My family will be there, and perhaps some of his, too -- we'll see. Either way, its sure to be a good day.

And finally, the rest of my time is taken up with either work, or getting ready for the Open House On Steroids (otherwise known as the Holiday Shopping Boutique) -- which I think will be a whole lot of fun, and hopefully profitable as well. If you're in the Denver area on Nov. 18, come by!!

Back to work, you!!

Oh my - your B&B review has me rolling. Not your usual review - that's for sure. Glad your trip otherwise was pretty great!

hey Susan here:

Dang, so this was on the 18th...*sigh* if things had been different. Well I swear to the high heavens the next time I come to Denver it WILL NOT be cause someone has died. I am calling a moratorium on death!
