Back in the swing of it...

Blue my mind - that's the colour of my nails for this week.  I am loving painting my nails at the moment, hoping they will grow long one day! 

I started my new fitness regime as of yesterday, the aim is to do at least one bit of fitness a day - no matter how big or small!  Day 2 and I am still going strong ;)  Hopefully I will stick at it.

This is my 3rd week at my new job.  I am really liking it, extremely busy ALL the time, bit its' good because the day doesn't drag on.

Olympic fever is all over the place at the moment, we had 'Olympic' themed arts and craft night here a couple of days ago and the kids were just loving it!  I have entered this pic into a competition to win an IPad, fingers crossed!  It's out the front of they Sydney Olympic Cauldron, when it was lit!

I found this quote the other day whilst scrolling around Pinterest town:

Out of the BLUE...

Well boys and girls, Christmas and New Year have come and gone once again! It seems to creep up so fast and then in a blink of an eye it is over!  Some people at work are already counting down the days till their next Christmas holidays(!)  Don't you just love Santa pics! Here is mine and Pat's from 2011 (ps Santa is my brother hehe!)  And look - I saw Rudolf this year...!  There was a really cool house right near us with lights up that we took Sebastian, Hayley & Lachlan to see - they even had a buble blowing machine going - now that is dedication!


All of our save the dates have been posted (hooray!).  They turned out pretty swell I think and we have had quite some cool comments about them which was nice!  Here is what the finished product looked like:

Patty, being the sweet boy he is, brought me a present the other day when he ventured to the shops all by himself! What was it I hear you ask... why nothing but a pair of BLUE jeans! That's correct, blue jeans!  I love when he buys me clothes because he picks things that I wouldn't even give any thought to because I think they won't suit me and low and behold they do! 

It was my niece, Hayley Jade's, 7th birthday the other day - we went rock climbing (YIKES is that a workout!) and played on the slip n slide out the back yard!  Pretty fun day :)

And on to more important news ~ I found a Coke bottle with my name on it! ;)

I'm off to hit the town in my new BLUE jeans ;)

3 years and 6 months x

Today is our 3 year 6 months anniversary! Any chance the boy gets to celebrate us he will ~ and I ain't complaining!!

I woke up to the most beautiful text message and tomorrow we are going to the movies ~ GOLD CLASS to see New Years Eve - there are like 40 main stars in it!

I posted Nan's Christmas cards off today for her! The count down is on till old Saint Nic comes for a visit!!  We have nearly completed all our wrapping!! Such little elves we are!

Pat and I were only saying the other day how much we can't wait to have a 'white christmas' one year! It's right up there on our 'Things to Do List'.  Another thing on that list is to send out our SAVE THE DATES! Best be off doing them now!

The Dress...

My wedding dress arrived on Friday - Wahoo! One whole month early... I thought that would be unheard of?! I wanted to squeal but I got the phone call at work so I had to remain composed ;)

I was reading today that the designer of my dress ~ Alfred Angelo ~ has exclusive rights to replicate Bella Swan's dress from Twilight - pretty cool I thought... That shall be my claim to fame!

My sister (Emily), my mum and I went to a wedding a few weeks ago -  here are a few pics...


It was such a lovely relaxed day, picture perfect background of the dam and and a picnic lunch afterwards. 

I must admit it got me pretty excited for my big day! I just get the biggest smile on my face when I think that I am soon to be married to my prince charming!

I'm off to netball now! Wish me luck :)

It’s raining, it’s pouring...

What a rainy old day ~ a perfect day to be snuggled up on the lounge watching some good old Disney classics (I wish!!)... but no work is where I am.

I launched my new gumboots today – I was a little bit nervous I must admit but my mumma told me I looked just fine so off I trotted up the street! By the time I got to the train station boy was I glad that I wore them – it was pouring down!

Anyway, now they are on my window sill at work drying out for the slog home!

They are my new fav – thanks to my sister for getting them for me, she saved them from being thrown out – how could you not love these guys! ;)

Cake Choosing !

So the wedding is just under 6 months away and boy oh boy has that time flown!
We chose our cake yesterday which was ridiculously simple to do.  There are a million out there and I was freaking out that I would not be able to decide on one - but in the end it was all done and dusted within 20 minutes!
It looks a little like this - but only two tiers and we made it more like us in places...
Flavours - chocolate & butterscotch for one layer & the other layer - white chocolate and raspberry! YUMMO!
Now to start doing my next 'wedding task' - first dance song...
