At my House...

It's going to be a nice calm week, or thats what I keep telling myself. I am working for the 5th day straight tomorrow and then have 4 days off, so hopefully things will start to calm down around here.

I have promised the boys that we can play lots of games after tomorrow...

And maybe even some trampolining if the weather stays nice...
And Lou, you have inspired us to. Whale sandwhiches have been a BIG hit here lately!

Hope your all having lovely calm weeks too, and make sure you pop by Buttons By Lou Lou and check out all the other house too...

Its been a hectic week to say the least, so when sax yelled out we had visitors this morning I had to go and check it out. When heading out the back to see what he was talking about, he told me the 'Horror-Keets' had come to visit and say good morning to him :)

Kids, they certainly know how to put a smile on your face, even in the stress fullest times, and yes it was nice to see we had some visitors come and join us for morning tea on this lovely sunny winter's day

Change of Plans...

Well I know I am always saying how busy things are, but really it has been an insanely busy couple of weeks and yesterday was planned to be another jam packed day, with Kindy drop off, Meetings and the like. But after Sax had a fall yesterday and got a bump on his head (He's fine now) all that went out the window, so instead we had a lovely day getting back in our Pj's, snuggling on the lounge reading books and even managing a Nana nap. Then to make the day even better, Brad came home early to catch up on some paperwork from home, but it was nice to just have his presence around while we lounged.

I even managed to whip up a loaf of Banana bread with Choc chips and cups of tea for afternoon tea.Bliss!

The Wedding...

I was honored to be asked by one of my best friends to make her wedding cake, hence the trip to Adelaide recently. I don't think I have ever been so nervous or stressed about making anything (normally I think I am a pretty confident cook) although when you are making something for someone who means so much to you, on their special day it was quite overwhelming. Hence to say, it all worked out SO well in the end and the wedding was absolutely beautiful, and once I had the cakes set up at the reception I actually got to relax for the day.

Cassie & Dwayne both looked amazing, and it was such a lovely day!Plus I was SO happy with how the cake and cupcakes turned out and got lots of lovely comments during the night.
The little boxes for the guests to take their cakes home in was a lovely touch too.I wish Cassie and Dwayne all the very best for a long and happy life together! Whilst marriage brings you ups and downs I have to say being married myself for nearly 11 years, having someone by your side to share the good and bad days is one of the best things life has to offer :)
