#21 - Flying solo....

Well I couldn't talk about this until today.  I dropped husby off at the International airport on Wednesday morning... headed for USA.  It was a surprise trip so he can attend his sisters wedding on the weekend.  No one knew he was coming, except for his dad.  He was in on the secret.  We only booked his ticket a week prior.... so it has all been a very whirlwind type experience. You see, I am doing hair and makeup and little bit of costuming for a stage show on the weekend... which is stressing me out.  Then we are going camping next week.  But he'll still be in the USA.  So we had to pack the trailer for camping BEFORE he left, as well as plan everything that goes along with it - what still needs to be packed, eating plan etc.  We also had to pack his clothes for his trip, and the camping trip.  It hurt my head a fair bit.  I get to tow the trailer and everything else stuffed in the car down to the camp site and set it up myself.  It is going to be SO fun.  He doesn't fly back in until Wednesday next week - 3 days after I set up camp. 

The surprise went well.  Everyone is happy to see him.  I am stuck in Australia with a million things to do and flying solo, sleeping with teddy at night to keep me safe and warm :)

PS.  Don't forget about my mixed basket giveaway... it's kind of awesome.

#20 - Smoooooothie

I am going camping next week, so am in the process of emptying my fridge.  I needed to use up some fruit, so decided to make a smoothie.  IT.  WAS.  DELICIOUS.  I have never tasted a better smoothie in all my life.  Best part is, I winged it!!!  Here's how to make it.

- 2 pears
-1/2 pineapple
- 1 punnet of blueberries

Then put in the blender:
- Above juiced fruits
- 2 bananas
- 1 cup milk
- handful of ice

And wizz till the ice is in little chunks.

I loved it SO much that I couldn't even wait to take a picture.  So this is what you get...

#19 - favourite movie.

What's your all time, most favourite movie?

Mine is the Slipper and the Rose.
I grew up watching this movie.  It is a spin on the story of Cinderella.

It is very old fashioned, and that's what I love about it.

And it is full of singing and dancing!

And a little bit of snogging.

If you want to see a scene from the movie, which I love, click here.  It is when "Cinderella" meets the Prince at the ball and they do the waltz.  It's so beautiful!

I just thought I'd share!

PS.  All images came from Google

#17 - A day late, self portrait day.

I missed the memo (in other words, didn't keep up with what's going on).  It was self portrait day yesterday for Blogtoberfest.  I am home sick from work and have spent most of the day infront of my computer.  So here I am.  Photo taken with my awesome fuzzy webcam.

No makeup.  Hair dried by itself.  No photo editing.  

The real deal.

#16 - Repetition... so much fun!

I'm attending Stampin' Up! Regionals beginning of November.  As part of attending you have the option of making card front to swap with people, so you can get lots of new cool ideas.  So I got together with two friends that are attending Regionals too, and we spend the night getting started on our designs.  I decided to make 60 card fronts.  We got started a little after 7pm.  We finished at 1am.  I was a zombie!!!  Got home at 1.25am and didn't get to sleep until 2am!!  I woke up Saturday morning to a thunderstorm at 4am, but promptly went back to sleep and didn't awake again until 9.30am!!!!  It was a gorgeous sleep in.  But I will have to admit, even thought I slept in to make up for being up so late, I have been stuffed ALL weekend.  I must be getting older.  Need my sleep too much!!!  

Anyway, Saturday afternoon and again this morning I worked on my card fronts, and I finally finished this morning.  They are all pretty, in their packaging, with the ingredients list inserted in the back, with my blog/shop/email details on a sticker on the back also.  They're all ready to Rock'n'Roll!!  

I am soooo glad they are finished.  The repetition was starting to get REALLY annoying.

Now I get to help the other two finish their card fronts off!!
