Weekend Wanderings

This is shaping up to be a full weekend. Colin and I started it off early with a trip to one of my favorite Calgary events, the Calgary Herald Book Sale. It runs this weekend and next and always proves to be full of fun (and cheap) finds. Yes, this is one of the reasons that we know I'm a bit of a nerd.

Here's a few of my treasures. I made a list this year and tried to stick to it although couldn't resist diverging from it a bit when I found the first of the James Owen Geographica series (If you've been bothering to pay attention to what I've been reading at all, you've seen a few of them jump in there. This is the only one I didn't have and it's in perfect condition! Yay!).

If you'll indulge me for a sappy moment, I'm going to share with you my biggest treasure of the day...finding Colin proved to be a GREAT book hunting partner. I'll be honest, it helped that he had some definite titles in mind and we walked away satisfied and successful where that was concerned too. Oh, and he's cute too. Check out the fun:

Did I mention that the enjoyment factor was heightened by the fact that we pretty much read from the same genres: fantasty and crime/thriller?

There may be another trip in the plans for us. We'll see. If you want to check it out, it's at the Crossroads Farmer's Market in Ogden and runs all this weekend and all next weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I'm not sure the hours but I think it opens at 10.

Tomorrow, my friend, Jesse, is getting married and I'm going to be a part of her wedding party. She's super excited - as she should be - and I'm thankful that God has blessed her with a man to match her so well. I had the privilege of taking their engagement photos. Here's a sneak peak at the happy couple...

I'm sure, in and around all that, there will be coffees to sip, bike rides to roll along with, hockey games to watch (I know it's wrapped up in your world but in pvr land, it has yet to happen...shhh...don't ruin the surprise!), bbq's to sizzle, photos to take and fun to be had....all with three of my favorite people!

What are you up to this weekend?
