So, as per usual, I got a bit behind! July was a busy month, what with going to Edmonton for the youth gathering, Trevor working tons of overtime, and then going to the Okanagan for an extended weekend.

The youth gathering was lots of fun, but pretty stressful for me. It's the first time I've ever been in charge of youth and nothing but (no event coordinating responsibilities) and it kept me hopping. We had 13 youth, and head counting filled up a lot of my time! I roomed with a friend I don't see often, so that was fun, and there were good speakers and good music. AND there was a Tim Horton's right in the same building as the dorms - bonus!

At the end of July Trevor and I went to the Okangan for a few days, and we left in the middle of the week. We spent a night at Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, and went to the hot springs. We got eaten ALIVE by mosquitoes - they were huge and everywhere - I was itching for weeks after!

The Okangan was beautiful as always, and we got to visit with lots of people, eat lots of good food, and hang out at the beach, so it was exactly what I was looking for in a holiday.

I also saw "Despicable Me" during July - such a cute movie - I highly recommend it!

If you're a Star Wars fan, I also highly recommend this website:
I haven't bought anything yet because I'm trying to restrain myself and not buy one of everything, but I definitely will be getting something soon! 2010 seems to have been my Year of the Geek, what with all the concerts and whatnot I've gotten to go to, so finally spending some money on some fan gear seems like a good way to top off the year!
