Leaving on a jet plane

Don't now when I'll be back again. Well thats a lie, I'll be back on the 29th, which means 19 days of fun I'll have to fill you in on!
Can't wait for time with my favorite girls and my mumma, oh and of course couple of wedding to go to!
For now I'll leave you with my beautiful boy on his favorite thing, the bouncer, and yes if you leave him long enough he will just drop off to sleep.

This year I wanted a new digital camera for mothers day, I didn't get it, I didn't get anything actually. So I told Michael I want a new camera and I'm just going to go and buy one,easily said than done, I'd love a beautiful big tricky camera but I want to be able to leave it on the kitchen bench without worrying about little sticky fingers playing with it, I wanted one that was decent enough to take nice photos, not to cheap and nasty, well 6 months later I still haven't decided what sort I wanted and what sort I really need. Until now
I have been looking at the ad for this camera for a while now, and I've looked over the specs and I just love it!
It has a screen on the front so you can take great self portraits (my fav sort of photos!) or so the people you are taking the photos of can see what they look like, how cool is that!
I cant wait!

Our house in the...

middle of our street. Well right at the end of our street but you get what I mean!

We have officially moved in, no more stuff at the old house, just the horrid cleaning to finish off, we thought we had more time to be out of the house, luckily Michael rang the real estate yesterday to find out exactly when we needed to be out, 5pm today she said, this was at 4pm mind you! So we have the house for the weekend(which is going to cost almost $300, ridiculous as no one is moving in! Grr!) so we can clean and do the lawn, of course Michael is working this weekend so I am cleaning after the kids are in bed (no way I'm taking 3 kids to a empty house for hours and hours a day, boring for them and tiresome for me!) and Michae is going to bunk off early from work to do the lawns, tomorrow night he's going to clean the carpets, not exactly the way we wanted to do it, but at least it will be done.

So the exciting part is now were in the new house with its plain white walls I mentioned to Michael I wanted to redecorate, well as much as you can when your renting, and he said the house is mine, the yard is his, so I'm going with a chocolate brown and baby pink theme for the lounge room and kitchen and a baby blue and chocolate brown theme for the bathroom, I'm so excited!
We already have the chocolate brown lounges so I'm going to give them a good spruce with some soft textured pillows and a couple of nice throw blankets in pink obviously, a floor rug and I'm planning some pink and brown teatowels and pink kitchen utensils/appliances maybe some brown and pink vases scattered around oh and a wodden lamp with you guessed it a pink shade!! I cant wait to start shopping! As for the bathroom we desperatly need new towels and bath mats so its probably good timing, I'm sure I can mix it up with bath mats and towels.

I saw these here and I definatly think I might need to buy both of them you never know when you might need a tool caddy in your kitchen and bathroom!
I will have to do some before and after pics, I'm so excited!

Happy Anniversary!

5 years ago today Michael and I got engaged.
For all of you who don't know we had spent a total of FOUR days together. Yes just 4 days together.
We met 6 months previously, I gave him my name and number, well he thought I did, I actually gave him a fake name and a fake number, a few weeks later I ran into him again at our favorite pub and I'd obviously had too much to drink (oops!) because after he asked me why he couldn't reach me on the wrong number I gave him my real number!

3 months later I get a text message from this guy I met at the pub one night and couldn't fob off, and from then on we spent every night talking on the phone for at least an hour sometimes more, don't ask me what we talked about considering we didn't even know each other, and we'd only met twice, but it was the most enjoyable part of my day.

He was working just outside of Cober Pedy so we decided to finally meet up in Adelaide 3 months after we had started talking. I booked my flights and we were off! I got there on a Friday, I was so nervous!

Tuesday was Melbourne cup day so off we went to the races, after a few drinks and some nice lunch there was a really cool band playing Michael gets up on stage with the band and proposes and out comes the ring!

Sneaky bugger had gotten to Adelaide before me and bought the ring! He was pretty confident things were going to go well. There was a reporter from the Adelaide Advertiser who did a story on us and we had this photo taken to go with the story

We look so happy and we were, we had two more day together then he was back to work and I was back to Orange. That was the first and last holiday we had together just us, 6 months later Jack was born, but that's a whole different story!

5 years later here we are happily married with 3 adorable little boys. Not many people would have thought we would have made it this far, and we've both lost friends because of it, but I guess we just knew that it was meant to be, I'm not saying that it hasn't been hard and we haven't had days when we thought we were being stupid jumping in so quick, but were very happy and hopefully our 10 year anniversay will be just as happy :o)
