For Rachael....

I spent today with my beautiful friend Rachael... I have missed Rachael & her gorgeous family ( more than I thought possible!!) since they've moved to Brisbane... so today it was so lovely to just spend the day together laughing, catching up on what our kids are up to, drinking coffee, having lunch, shopping for Rachael's baby (gosh Rach, my ovaries are still aching!) & enjoying each other's company! Rachael stops by my blog every week to see what we've been up to... Rachael's girls know when she is looking at my blog because they hear the music & her hubby always wants to check it out & asks has she done anything about her photography yet? & I have to say it does my soul good!!!! To Rachael & Jas THANK YOU so much for believing in me & for ALWAYS encouraging me, you don't know how much it means to me! & Rach thank YOU for spending the day with me & I can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks... I love you guys :) xoxoxoxo

I hope you enjoy them :)

Hot Air Balloons....

We often wake to these hot air balloons.. we were watching these ones at 6.30 this morning.... the blue, white & red hot air balloon was right above our house.... it was so close!!! The kids thought seeing the "fire" when they were descending was very cool!! It was the perfect morning for hot air ballooning... a beautiful way to start the day for some very lucky people!!! xx

Their Eyes...

Get me everytime! these photos were taken nearly 2 years ago on the summer holidays.. none of the kids have the some colour eyes, they all have varying shades of brown.. not one of them got my my blue/green eyes!! although Samuel does have the slightest touch of green in his! Anyway just playing with these photos & thought I'd share them with you :) xxxx

How sweet...

Is my baby girl.. this photo was taken at my brother's wedding just over 4 years ago.. I can't believe how little Tayla is! I searched everywhere for the perfect dress for her to wear, this dress was it... simple but elegant & the perfect colour for her! (then again this girl can wear any colour & they all look fabulous on her!!!) I don't have many photos of Tayla in her gorgeous dress as I was a bridesmaid so I was kind of busy... & this isn't the best one but I LOVE it... you cant really see her face clearly, but it doesn't stop my baby girl from being totally adorable :) xx

Hubby is so NOT impressed with my hair... he'll get over it... not sure about his bank account though lol! have a great weekend everyone :) xxxx

First Swim...

Since last Summer... the kids had a ball on Saturday down at Currumbin, we are so lucky to have these beautiful beaches on our doorstep! I must say the water was too cold for me!! although I was tempted to join the boys out on the boards.. I am going to get my own board & get out there & have some fun this summer.... the weather was beautiful... warm with a slight breeze just how I like it! It was a great way to spend the day, we ended the day with a bbq & a few drinks... perfect :) xx

Surfer girl...

Had enough...

Flip flops are a must... the cuter the better :)

The view north... Surfers Paradise...

My little sand lover :)

Ok, so here we go....

1. I always wear my watch.. although my new one apparently doesn't like steam so it doesn't go into the shower with me!!

2. I absolutely love strawberries only fresh ones.... dislike strawberry ice-cream & milkshakes etc.!!

3. I like to be on time, it drives me nuts if I'm late & my other half is constantly running late... except on our wedding day, he
was actually early!!

4. I hang my washing out a certain way & have been known to take it down & redo it if it's not done to my liking!! needless to
say I hang it out all the time :)

5. I wear lip balm all the time... if I forget to take one with me I will buy a new one... Napolean is huge favourite!

6. I colour my hair regularly, more so now that the grey's are starting to show!!!!

So there you have it, now I tag anyone who wants to join in the fun!! xxx
