Can I just say I have the best husband in the whole entire world?! He gets up every. single. morning. with Porter so I can sleep in. I don't know of another husband like him.

The last leg

Well we have less than a week left on our adventure here in Winnipeg and although I am SO EXCITED to be going home there are a few things about it that I am going to miss. I know I've really been hard on Winnipeg so I thought I'd list a few things that I've really enjoyed this summer (some of them have nothing to do with the actual city... haha!)

- Kildonan and Assiniboine Parks
- The Shopper's Drug Mart right across the street (that's been amazing- I don't know how I'm going to function at home without it, Jace and Vicky are going to need to stock up on a few things!)
- Making some of the best friends EVER, we have had such a great summer together and have become life long friends. I love them!
- Going out for dinner once a week
- The multicultural ward we attend, I love all the different colors
- The CRAZY Winnipeg drivers and how there are parked cars in the far driving lane all the time, not to mention the insane pot-holes
- The Forks
- The warm, humid evenings
- My glass-top stove
- Borrowing movies from Adam's endless and impressive collection.
- Checking the Mobile Report 50 times a day (you think I'm exaggerating) although I'll be SO glad not to have to!

It really has been an amazing summer but of course there's no place like home. We're on the countdown now!

Ok I think I've made it clear that I like music, like I reeeeeally like music. Last night we went to the Royal Albert Arms in Winnipeg (in a sufficiently sketchy neighborhood, I was impressed.) to see one of our faves Cuff the Duke play. Their opening band was a Toronto based band called Zeus and I am telling you they completely stole the entire evening for me. It's really been a long time since I've been this excited about a new musical discovery and I had to share. They've only released a 5 single EP but have a full length album in the works and I tell you I can't wait. Head over to their myspace and website and have a listen (and watch the videos). Their cover of Genesis- That's All is brilliant and was even better live. You're going to think I love them just cause of their Beatle boots..... that helped, I'm not gonna lie.

I can't say enough, just go have a listen.
