Birthdays and Food – Best mix

So last night was a bit of a run around. After the wedding dresses with my sister I headed home and got ready.

Chucked on a pair of shorts, nice teal singlet and my flats….hmm no not happy, to casual

Changed into a strapless short black dress….too dressy

Changed into a teal dress which I think I have only worn once before. That’ll do.

I couldn’t believe I changed 3 times….puh-lease, I should of stayed with the shorts and singlet as would of been most comfortable.

Anyhoo, the night was just kicking off around 7ish, met up with alot of V’s friends, I don’t think she realised how many people she invited, as she only had a table for 15 reserved, and nearly 25 people came haha. Oh well, they were able to loiter around no biggie. She loved her gift, which was this amazing necklace my girlfriend and I organised, by the way V – I want your necklace, count yourself warned. Dinner for me was bruschetta (I seriously have an addiction to this stuff) as it was a fair sized serve, and I may have eaten 3kgs worth of pasta at lunch.

Had to say goodbye to V and the fiance and I jumped into a cab to go to Potts Point, to this little Czech restaurant. Such a nice venue, but soooo toasty. We were sweating to death upstairs!I didn’t post anything here about it as it was a surprise birthday dinner for Deb, and she was surprised! I only wish I was there to see her reaction ๐Ÿ™‚ We made it before the cake, so planned it well. Ended up leaving about 10pm and headed home. A long long day.

Today we’ll head to the St George Sailing club as a potential wedding venue. Will suss it out and see if it makes the cut. Then we have to pick out of 3 (Kogarah Golf club & St George Motor Boat club). A bit more chilled today in the weather, which is always nice, but so long as it doesn’t go the extreme I am happy.

Alrighty then, I am off venue shopping.

Dress – Bardot

Handbag – Japan markets

Pizza, Fish & Chips and my Heathly eating :) Wedding dress shenanigans

What? I am totally eating healthy. There was some veges somewhere on that pizza….and the fish and chips I munched for dinner… Er….Omega 3? Yeah thats right, healthy!

Today was not bad, because it was busy the day went quickly. Also got to catch up with V as it is her birthday tomorrow! yay!

I have a funny story to tell, and I only hope it reads as funny as it was (or you might need to have been there). It all starts with my work, and this girl who works there that smells, really really bad. She is known as Stinky.

So my boss (I’ll call her B) and a couple of other girls were leaving at the end of the day and are heading to the lifts. B and I head to the loo and once out make our way to an open lift (the other girls are already in). Oddly B states that she will grab the next one and I bid her goodnight and head into the lift. One step in and I see the 2 other girls I work with….and Stinky. In a split second I have to decide if I want to be in a small enclosed space with her….do I risk my health and my nostrils??? Quickly I back out and practically run away from the lift, leaving the doors to close and mumbling, sorry I’ll get the next one!

I look around to see B laughing at my antics. Little did I know that she had seen Stinky enter the lift (something I missed) and made and about face. I had totally wandered into the warzone unawares. B had even tried to grab my arm as I walked in, I had obviously missed this. She couldn’t believe I backed out of the lift.

So we were cackling to ourselves as we waited and got the next lift down. Sorry Stinky, but I value my life! To the other girls…I feel for you.

Ah, hilarious. Everyone needs to have a good laugh every now and then ^_^

Tomorrow is my busy Saturday. I head out with my sisters to Leichhardt to try on some wedding dresses ๐Ÿ™‚ Woot! Very exciting. So that’s morning to afternoon, then I have to head home and get ready for V’s 25th. Dinner and dancing, which might be a scary sight…I put Elaine from Seinfield to shame. Can’t wait to give V her card, its so cute and funny.

Ergh, that means I have to write on the card. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not a card person. I mean I don’t mind receiving them, but giving them means I generally have to write more that To….. From…… *sigh* What do you want? A little novelette? I am not going to pour my heart out onto a card, so don’t get your hopes up. Sorry V, but that’s me, I’ll aim for something good tho, lol. The focus is the picture on the front, not what I write ๐Ÿ˜€

For now I ‘m going to park my bum in bed and watch some Jersey Shore, or maybe a movie! I know, its total spontaneity at my house, look out!

PS. have released my posts to Facebook, so I hope I don’t look like a total ponce ^_^

PPS. Have totally been taking photo’s of my feet at work (to show my work heels) I hope my colleagues don’t think I have a foot fetish…hmm, too late now.

Fare Thee Well

Today we lost one of the good ones. One of the girls from work resigned and it put everyone in a slump. With no warning it was a shock and upsetting. Such a vivacious spirit will definitely be missed ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Well I have just gotten back from the Parentals and I’m feeling blergh….I should have stopped at 1 serving of dinner. Why stomach why!?!! But it was a hilarious and extremely loud dinner, as it usually is. Only 10 people, which is small for my immediate family haha (I’m one of 7 children). Yes I know, a nice big Catholic family where my parents obviously didn’t own a TV otherwise there wouldn’t be so many of us ๐Ÿ™‚

I did get to surprise my mum with news about my promotion, and I told her (and everyone else at the table) in such a way that my “news” would seem like I was pregnant. She totally fell for it, I wish I had a picture of her face. Was kind of like this monkey, but she isn’t a monkey. I’m hurting your brain aren’t I? haha.

Dinner was yum tho, Chicken & Avocado pasta. My sis and I made it, and by that I mean I pulled the chicken off the carcass and she did everything else lol. Moving right along! We had some fun mucking around with the ingredients and found the the soup mix we added came out of the can, still looking like a can, and it was happy to see you!

Yum, couldn’t wait to munch that! As you can tell, am totally following my healthy eating plan.

Tomorrow I get to wear jeans to work! Once a month we do a jeans day on a friday and donate a gold coin to a charity or cause. Tomorrow we will be donating to help out the Christchurch Earthquake in NZ. What a tragedy! Our company has an office over there and it pretty much got pancaked. The Pyne Gould building was completely flattened. My heart goes out to the families suffering.

Alrighty, on that note I need to head to bed. The outfit of today (these are getting harder to do, I have to plan what to wear so I am not wearing the completely same clothes. And looking at my wardrobe, I do not own many colourful items. Its mainly black, gray, a little red, a couple of greens and that’s it. Fiance I need to buy new clothes ^_^

Oh well, I don’t think that is going to happen anytime soon haha.

Bridesmaid dresses, Wedding dresses and Birthday relaxing

After my lazy morning I scooted off to meet up with my sisters and sister to be. We had some bridesmaid dresses to try on for her wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

I totally didn’t prepare, we rock up to the shop and I’m like….er I didn’t bring heels….or have my makeup done lol. I didn’t realise that you needed to be wearing makeup, that way the dress really looks the part. Ok, leant something new today!

Anyhoo, after picking this gorgeous dress (grecian style) my evil sisters decided to pick out the most horrible wedding dresses to try on. What was even more funny was that the store owner came over and exclaimed over the excellent taste my sister had, as she had picked out this amazing italian designer whose gowns start at about $5,000! Er, are you serious?! Excuse me while I barf in that headpiece over there.

It could of been worse, I could of been in something like this pic, although if that dress was there, I would of been forced into it. But I did find that white is my colour, and ivory doesn’t suit my skin colour, good to know!

After a morning of satin and organza I went and picked up the fiance to go t our friends place for a birthday bbq. This was great, as I got to chat to another past school friend, mainly about weddings, but was fun.

Most awesome thing was the cake my gf made for her fiance (his bday). A lego cake!! Best idea ever

Anyhoo, no pics of what I was wearing today (I forgot to get them, but nothing spesh justย shorts and singlet). Will definitely get pics of what I wear to the engagement party tomorrow.

Tillย then!

Friday night Hurricanes is on the menu

*yawn* I am finally awake after a loooong night last night (its only 8.30am but I’m normally up earlier). Last night was good, it was my fiance’s work friends 30th, Nat and she looked lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ We all went to Hurricanes at Darling Harbour to meet for drinks and dinner. I really didn’t feel like drinking, so I just had water during the night.

Whilst waiting for our booking at 8.30pm we were chilling out the front (where everyone else was, it was packed!) and this girl walked past with her friends and she had the weirdest thongs on! I tried to snap a photo, but it came out quite blurry. But you can kind of see that it looks really chunky at the toes. It was a pair of thongs and had all these little balls attached to it. Looked like her feet exploded.

It was a huge table of over 20 people! And everyone I hadn’t really met before, so I kind of chatted to a couple of people. I wasn’t feeling that great so I only ordered a bowl of steamed veges, and decided I would steal some of the fiance’s ribs & chips. Ok, those ribs were pretty dam good…and methinks next time that I am going to have to order a rack for myself. I’ll even trim my nails for the occasion lol. I think by the time the food came out it was 9pm! So a late dinner. They a piece of mars bar cheesecake followed – YUM!

Unfortunately we had to train to home, so ended up leaving after dinner, when everyone else kicked on to Cargo Bar. I’m getting to that stage now where if its past my bed time (10pm) I am wiped….seriously. I cannot do the whole late night anymore ^_^ guess I’m showing my age haha!

Anyhoo, I got my fiance to snap some pics on Piermont Bridge in the city. I work just in the background, so really can’t complain ๐Ÿ™‚

Meat & Wine Co yum!

It’s hot hot hot! I am currently typing and the weather outside is a lovely muggy high 20’s. The heat has come back, but I think it will also bring with it a nie storm. Hopefully it will clear the air, which is fine, as I have got the washing in so I now permit it to rain ^_^

I had a very nice day today. Woke up early and had my work outfit in mind, that way I only had to chuck that on, do my makeup, clean my teeth and be off! Back to work after a fun filled day yesterday, but I did have a work lunch on.

We were taken to the Meat & Wine Co at Darling Harbour, which is awesome! I hadn’t been there in ages and it had also been refurbed. O.m.g I ate sooo much, but it was so worth it ๐Ÿ™‚ There was 6 of us so we started with some mixed breads – bruschetta (are u really surprised with this choice? haha) garlic and herb bread and also Haloumi cheese. Then our mains where everyone ordered steak, mine was cooked to perfection and came with the most amazing garlic mash….I seriously am contemplating asking for just a bowl of that the next time I go haha! Then the girls squeezed in a Chocolate and Pistachio fondante….WOW The best meal I have had in ages. If I was wearing jeans, this would of been the part where I leant back in my seat and undo a couple of buttons ๐Ÿ˜€

The Luge!

The rest of the day passed pretty quickly as we were gone for about 3 hrs ^_^ so with the afternoon came drinks with another insurer as a Back To Work function. They did have this cool shot ‘luge’ (see pic) where you pour a shot into the ice sculpture and get it at the end all nie and chilled. Didn’t try it out though. To be honest, I’m not a fan on staying out after work, as I like to go home and chill, but I stayed for an hr. We went to the Cruise Bar an the International Terminal Circular Quay. Great venue, but our view of the harbour was marred by a huge cruise liner pulled up against the venue. What was funny is we totally think we saw Robert Redford leaning over the side enjoying the sun…I wish I gotย a pic! Oh well.

So that was my very exciting day. By the way, have totally given up on this exercise thing, seems like too much effort ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a busy weekend planned: Friday – friends 30th, Saturday – bridesmaid dress shopping for my sis in law to be, and friends bday lunch in arvo, Sunday – friends engagement party eeek! No free time! But I already planned my outfit for the engagement, yay! It is my awesome $8 dress I scored, so will get some happy snaps of it in action on Sunday.

Anyways, I’m off to try turn this fan on turbo

Ciao xx

Valentines Dinner – pre Valentines

As I let you know the fiance and I decided to bail on Valentines day and instead celebrate tonight. We just got back and omg I am sooo stuffed.

Marinara thingy

Chicken Avocado

Started off with Bruschetta for me (I know, I’m addicted to this stuff) which was a HUGE serving, and he had prawns.

Then for our mains I had avocado chicken and he had this massive marina with a tomato soup chilli thing. We loved it, tasted awesome. I was full, so only got to eat half my main (stupid starters!) but took the rest home.

I had decided before I even got to the restaurant that I was having dessert, so I forced in some gelato – it was wow! Hazlenut, Mango and Vanilla, so gooood!

And now I am rolling around the house as I have eaten so much, and need to digest before bed.

I really shouldn’t of had dessert >.< too late now!
