Help a Maid of Honour Out!

Hey folks!  Well, in less than two weeks my bestie is getting married :)  And, as the title of this post suggests, I am the maid of honour.  And, one of the duties that comes along with that is giving a speech.  Now, I could go on and on about how much I love my friend and how happy I am for her, but I'd like it to be coherent and a little bit relevant to the day.

So, my plea is this: does anyone have any suggestions for me for a non-religious, slightly quirky speech on my best friend's wedding day?  I've been working on it, but I need more cohesion.

I appreciate any and all suggestions :)

One Lovely Blog Award

The lovely Laurie has once again gifted me with an award!  The "One Lovely Blog Award", in fact :)  Laurie mentions that it's because I'm funny, Canadian and I like pie, which I think are awesome reasons to win an award!  Especially the pie part.

So, now I send this award on to some more lovely bloggers (some of whom may have already received this, I think it's been making the rounds):

Mike over at My Life and New Fight with Ra.  Mike has already gotten this award, but I wanted to give him another, cause he's pretty awesome, full of positivity and compliments, and he's a freakin' firefighter with RA!  Major props for that, dude.  I mean, c'mon.

Confessions of an RA Superbitch.  I'm pretty sure her blog title is reason enough to win numerous awards the world over.  But the real reason is that she tells it like it friggen is.

Squirrel over at Feelin' Swell: My Life with RA.  I'm lovin' her blog, she's got great insight into young life with RA.  Plus she went to a camp for young folks with RA, and I'm a wee bit jealous.  Okay, fine, a whole lot jealous.  Plus, she went to Spain recently.  And, she lives in Scotland.  Awesomeness abounds!

Judy over at Ra is Wild.  I can't get over how active and fit this woman is!  She goes on hiking/backpacking trips that I only dream about.  Though, we may plan a little RA gal hiking trip on the Appalachian Trail, huh, Judy?  I wish :)

Just passin' on the RA blog love :)

Totally Shallow

This is awful of me, but as I was out walking tonight (at a decent pace, I must add) an elderly lady with a hunchback passed me.  As in, walking faster than I was.  Admittedly, I was on the end of my walk, my ankle was a-killin' me, and this lady was motoring, but still.  Is it terrible of me to be a wee bit upset about this??  That an elderly lady with a hunchback passed me????  I'm only 31 for pete's sake!

Her calf muscles were killer.

She's Alive!!

I'm totally back from vacation (like, a week ago), but can't seem to get off my bottom and write a post about it (complete with pictures!).  We had a blast, and as my ankle us way better than last year, I got to do way more activities (including hiking the International Appalachian Trail!!!).  I just felt like doing this lame post 'cause I haven't posted in about a month. 

I promise I will do a proper post about vacay (complete with pictures!!)  really, really soon.  Soon.
