Weekends need to be longer

I believe we should all work 4 days and have 3 days for our weekend! I’ll vote for whoever can give me this when they come to power!!

I am pooped…a busy day yesty, not so busy day today but now I have a nice headache going and am tired. I also need to stop whinging as I think the fiance is planning my demise unless I shutup. Freedom of speech buddy!

We went to the St George Sailing club and it looked like a dump from the outside, but inside surprisingly not bad. It also had gorgeous views.

Now the list is compiled and we need to figure out where we want, 3 venues 1 choice. Hmmm…will have to get back to you.

The fiance and I got invited to see that new movie ‘Unknown’, with Liam Neeson. Wasn’t bad, but I kept thinking I had seen the same concept somewhere else…it had been done before. Oh wow, some guy has an accident and loses his memory, only to find somebody else living his life for him. Kinda tastes a little like the Bourne Identity (except for the other person taking over their life). It did have an ok twist, but I could of waited until it came out to dvd. Ah well, it’s not often that we go to the movies, so it was a nice break.

One thing about the movies I think everyone does – end up eating sooo much popcorn that your lips end up going all weird and all you can taste is salt. And yet, you cannot stop shoveling mouthfuls ofย  it into your gob. I think they must lace it with speed as well, because you end up eating within the previews time, then you are sooo thirsty you need to down a litre of coke. All this before the movie even starts. Its all part of their master plan!

I have also created a Wish List, unfortunately I am not rich enough to have everything I lay my eyes on. Although if I was uber rich the first thing I would do is have a money fight. I had one in Japan with my fiance, but it just didn’t feel rich.

I mainly want a white or cream leather jacket, and those gorgeous Steve Madden shoes. Need to start secretively spending our h0use deposit….tee hee.

Now I need to go and munch some brie, which I’m totally eating for the calcium and not the fatty tasty goodness.

Wedding Dresses, and 25th Party

I found my dress….! Or at least one I really really want.

I went out with my sisters to try on some wedding dresses, so I booked in with 2 shops one in the morning and one in the afternoon, that way we can browse other places in between and also grab lunch.

So I went to Oanh Ma in Annandale and she has these lovely made to measure dresses and omgomgomg I want…seriously!
Oh, to be able to afford the dress *sigh* I think I need to learn how to rob a bank…or at least a bottle shop.

Some other dress shops were completely woggy (no offense!!) but I’m talking tulle and lots of it, with boofiness and then the bling…my eyes! I think I lost my sister at one point, a dress may have eaten her. But I did try on a whole heap of different styles so that I know what I want. And I’m not going to say, as the fiance needs to be kept out of the loop.

I wish I could find some pictures of really really ugly dresses and show you what I mean. Some designers must take sick pleasure in creating these manifestations of a crazy mind in the hopes that some poor soul decides to try it on, and it devours her. Brides…beware.

I also discovered what I will have my bridesmaids wear, if they piss me off – I call it, Ode to the Dead Peacock.

MWAHHAHAHAAA…

Anyhoo, I need to go get ready for V’s 25th birthday tonight. Should be fun!

Here is the gray top I scored yesterday for only $8 – Woot!

Top – Chicabootie

Skirt – Melbourne gift from sister

Belt – don’t know, but this is the first time I have worn it, as I always thought it looked weird. Eh, it worked today.

Flats – Sheriton shoes

 

And something to scare you until I post later with the party update

When I took the pic the lady was like, oh no, you arent allowed to take photo’s. My sis jumped in saying I was checking a text msg. Cos thats what I do, I hold my phone at eye level so I can read text msgs easier, lol. Totally fell for it.

But seriously….you can fit a family of 5 under that thing, and have room for dog!

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.

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!

Wedding Venue – More hunting

Today decide to go look at a couple more wedding venues. We drove all th way to Lugarno for Lugarno Seafood, and got there too early as they weren’t open ๐Ÿ™‚ But didn’t like the feel of the place, so scratched it off the list.

Kogarah Golf Club

We then went to Kogarah Golf Club and had a chat to the manager about what is available, packages etc. It’s not bad,ย  prefer the St George Motor Boat club, because it’s more modern and has a nicer view. I am keeping both options available, as the fiance seems to like the golf club more. Will be making a decision after we think on it and also try the meals.

I’ll also start showing my random weekend outfits (maybe some workday ones, but they are generally pretty boring)

Jacket – ebay $20

Singlet – Cotton On (purple)

Top – Forever 21

Jeans – Forever 21

Necklace – my Grandmothers

Shoes – can’t remember (only 2nd time I’ve worn them too!)

Tonight me and the fiance are heading to a nice romantic dinner, this way passing up on the overcrowded restaurants on Valentines. It also means we can order what we want off the menu instead of a set menu, and aren’t pushed out after a certain time ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait! Totally getting an evil dessert.

Ps. 120 situps, pushups and squat, yeah boi!

Honeymoon – Tuscany or all Italy, any ideas?

Wandered into the travel agents on my way home from work again, still unsure of where I want to go for my honeymoon! I know I know…I have heaps of time, but I want to know now!! *shakes fist*

So I grabbed a brochure on Italy as I was thinking at work that I would love to go to Tuscany. It just sounds like it would be a lovely holiday. Great wine, good food and a beautiful landscape.

Ah, isn’t it gorgeous! Hmmm, things to ponder whilst I have heaps of time.

My bro and his lovely fiance Jess just booked in their honeymoon, so jealous! They are going to Las Vegas, New York, Bahamas and Virgin Islands (some other places too, but cant’ remember). It sounds like an awesome holiday.

Met up with my sis for lunch today, as she had to drop off my very first bridal magazine ๐Ÿ™‚ This thing was HUGE! I was thinking I’d read it on the train home, and if not I can always brain somebody with it BECAUSE IT IS THICK ENOUGH TO BE CLASSED AS A WEAPON! People, do we really need that much crap (I’m talking the ads) in the mag? I will definitely get some good ideas, but that’s only like 10 pages worth. Egads!

But I did pick up one fab idea. Instead of having a photo booth (which is becoming more popular now) it had the idea of a Polaroid camera and people take a pic of themselves and write a message at the bottom of it, and attach it to a pin board. Awesome!

Ah wedding fun!

Today I was good, didn’t much too much bad stuff, and came home and did my 100 situps, pushups and squats! Go me! ^_^ The horrible part of the night, was I didn’t have any gravy with the lamb chops, rice and veges my sweet fiance cooked up. Was tasty, but was sad without gravy. lol I know, I’m weird.

Anyhoodle, I’m to bed to read my book and try and convince the fiance to honeymoon in Tuscany !

T

ps. Don’t forget to leave me comments, or even some honeymoon ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

Honeymoon Choices

Ok, wow…it was mid to high 30s today, so nice and steamy. Totally waited for an air-conditioned train ๐Ÿ™‚

Before boarding this chilled train I stopped into a travel agent to swipe some holiday brochures. Upon walking in I was undecided of what to get…and confused the agent there also, lol. My fiance and I are trying to figure out where to holiday for our Honeymoon. You wouldn’t think it was that hard, but considering he is a snowboarder and loves adventure and I prefer warmth and relaxing by a pool, its proving harder than originally thought.

So I grabbed a book on Reunion Island (Mauritius, Madagascar etc):

This looks fun and different. Am hoping to sate his taste for adventure as there is volcanoes and white water rafting etc, which if I did I would have a death grip on the copter/boat until they had to pry me off when we stopped, but he would like it.

There are also the lemurs and animals in Madagascar which I think is awesome (would totally try to kidnap a lemur)

Or somewhere in the South Pacific, which would be more my thing, as it would be relaxing and chilled. A little adventure, but not heaps

Hmpf….methinks I have to try convince him to go where I want, lol

I leave you with a little piece from the MX I read on the train home:

Girl eating cookie: “I can taste paper.”

Boy: “It’s a fortune cookie.”

Girl: “I didn’t know here was paper in there.”

Boy: “You’ve just eaten your future.”

I totally laughed to myself over that…there may have been some weird looks in my direction because of that.

Ciao!
