- Tackle Hug Portage N Maim
- Get a derby family group hug
- See Joe's new house.
- Meet Stephen and Anne Maries little girl.
- Laugh hysterically with Jamie
- Pay respects to both of our Grandmothers
- Sit down in Cristina's chair and say, "make my hair look cool again!"
- Be in the presence of our families and the chaos that generally ensues


- Altona
- The half way tree
- The farm
- Portage and Main
- The Forks
- Endless Horizon
- The Pierson school gym
- Flat


- A fried egg sandwich at White Star
- Pulled Pork at Lovey's

- Pointing and laughing at the banana in Melita
- Sushi from Tokyo zone
- Jambusters from Safeway
- Half pints beer enjoyed with friends and/or family

- Canada Day!
- Michelle and Darcy's great big party for their love
Pin It Now!


  1. How exciting! So close to being HOME!

    I'm curious to hear what your "must buy" list looks like.

    1. Right now
      - Advil
      - BBQ sauce
      - Brown Sugar
      - Twizzlers
      - Gladware

    2. Intersting and diverse list! It's amazing to hear what, from Canada, is missed by ex-pats.

      I hope there's another round of SGF but on BZ, and that you join in. I'd love to be your SGF and send you Canadian 'treasures'!

    1. Jake, I recently found out it had a name! Seriously!? They named it?!

  3. Chris and I require at least an evening of your time, coincidentally I've always wanted to try Lovey's... :p
