A Quick Glimpse of the Weekend

This past week has been crazy with the semester coming to close, but I'm so happy to announce that on Wednesday I have my last exam and then no more night classes until mid-July!  I'm so excited to have evenings and weekends open for myself and also to finally get the chance to invest a little more time into the blog and catching up on all of your lovely blogs :)  Jurgen and I also have a couple of trips planned over the break (to places I haven't visited before), so it should also be a wonderful chance to get to experience a little more of what the country has to offer (and then of course share it with you guys)!

But, before I delve into our weekend, I first want give a BIG thank you to Jillian at Cornflake Dreams for creating such a beautiful new layout for my blog and twitter pages.  I'm absolutely smitten with the final product and cannot stop refreshing the page just to admire it :)  Thanks so much Jillian!  If you look at the right-hand column, Jillian has also added a link to my pinterest page - if you have an account feel free to follow me and I'll be sure to follow you back!

This weekend involved a lot of rugby since Jurgen was lucky enough to borrow a work colleague's season tickets to the Bulls Game on Saturday evening.  The game was great (the Bulls won!) and we had an awesome view of the field.  What was even more exciting was that we were able to sit just a few metres back from where the team sits so it was nice to get to watch them run out on the field and all that jazz.

The vibe at Loftus is always awesome - to say the fans are die hard would be an understatement haha.

Such a fun, but freezing night! - By the end of the game, it was close to 0 degrees Celsius (36 degrees Fahrenheit)!

On Sunday it was back to the books and gearing up for the week ahead since it's exam time for me and Jurgen also has important deadlines coming up for his doctorate.  But come Wednesday I'll be finished with my first semester of post-grad which will call for a little impromptu celebration with dinner and drinks!

What did you do this weekend? 
Anything exciting planned for the week ahead?

  3. Thanks for the compliment on the picture. I have never been that close to an eagle.

    I noticed that picture, looks great. Do you have the full resolution one? I can send it to you along with some others (better quality). Just give me your email if you want some. I have several with you and Jurgen.
