Happy 18th Wedding Anniversary!!!

Oh no!!! Do you know what happened today???

Its been such a hectic weekend, with the wedding and dds birthday and all!!! All I thought about was getting all this done.

I completely forgot that today was our wedding anniversary!!! Totally didnt even give it a thought.

So as I was lying in bed thismorning trying to wake up and my husband put this lovely wrapped box in my hand and said "Happy Anniversary", I nearly died!! Its not the wifes position to forget these things!!!

I was totally sick that i forgot.......

Anyway, this is what was in the package.....

I had eyed this off a while ago and dragged stu into the jewellery shop and showed him, not thinking anymore about it as i have done that before, and stus bought something else...... So how stoked was i!!!!

We did come to an agreement though... My gift would be a ful body massage and lamb shanks for tea. I make the BEST lamb shanks. Better than the restaurants!! I dont cook much, but the few things i do cook, I cook really well!!! They were totally wicked!!!


And here we are, still blissfully happy after 18 years together!!!

Happy Anniversary darling... I lvoe you more than ever!!!

This wedding was THE MOST AWESOME!!! thing you have seen. By far the absolute best wedding i have done. It was so hard to visualise at the main colour was black, but OMG!! It turned out amaising!!

These dresses are the most gorgeous dresses I ahve seen in a wedding party. So individual!!! the bride wore white, but look at that red panal at the back on the train!!! A local dress maker made this!! The mother of the bride made the bridemaids dresses!!

Day 98 - Preparations Begin

The wedding season is really going to kick in in a big way this weekend. I have started all the preparation for a HUGE balloon wedding.

I'll be making things that i have seen done - but not done myself, so Im a bit nervous. Usually all goes to plan though. Only once i have had to panick, but went for plan E and no-one knew the difference!! Had i have known at the time though, the price would have been HEAPS more than i charged!!!
Here is a photo of that wedding. It was at the PCYC and the problem came with getting all that material and lights to sit in the air!!! But it was a 8 point canopy and then we had like 12 runs of fairy lights at either end of the canopy across the room too!! it looked totally awesome!! There are a few things that would have made it totally awesome, but due to budgetory demands, they had to save a bit hear and there.


But back to this weekends wedding. I am making this waiter out of balloons. He will be holding a seating plan and also a tray containing notes that people can leave "telegram" messages on. He will be located at the entrace - obviously!!

The theme for the wedding in Black with only touches of red!! Awesome!! So i am doing this backdrop behind the bridal table..... the bridal table wil have a gorgeous full tulle skirt with black satin draping, and a cake table to match.

This is going to be the dance floor but in black with a little red....
I am also making 4 lamp stands that will have balloons at the top which light up like a lamp.
These large ballons will also have lights in them - but this is a surprise for the bride and groom, they dont know Im doing that......


And this is my photo for today...... I am putting on weight!! I can totally feel it and am now starting tpo feel it. I my shoulders too. I dont know if i am bulking up due to the workouts at the gym!! Im hoping not!!! I will give it another month... I have cut back to onlu three sessions a week and walking up to Porky lookout everyday. I so hoping this works!!!

Day 95 - Typical Sunday

Well, my Sunday was typical with the usual clothes washing, scrapbooking and eating all the wrong foods!!!

I did a couple of layouts this weekend. One i didnt bother to takes photos of... it was one of those archery pages i have to scrap - but its boring for everyone except us!! LOL

Then i wanted to use this months Sissy pack, so I scrapped Brendas birthday!! It turned out lovely. Im pretty happy with the result!!

Seeing as I was just staying at home today - I just had my daggys on and didnt even do my hair!! But took the photo anyway. After being in those gorgeous gardens yesterday and seeing some beautiful trees, I thought Id show you out comparison!!
Here is our elm tree. I am standing at the base of it and it probably stands maybe my height again, maybe half more....
Then theres the one from Pilatus!!! Hmm, lots more growing to be done yet - little tree!!!


Thats it for me... seeeya mondy!!

Day 94 - Open Gardens Scheme Weekend!!

Hubby and i had a not date this weekend at the open garden scheme.

It was a totally beautiful day for it with not a cloud in the sky.
The first garden we went to visit was "Pilatus" and ny far the most beautiful.

This is my photo for the day first off - infront of the most gorgeous wisteria vine!!!

The entrance to Pilatus. The house was built in 1935, but the gardens really didnt get serious until 1959. The gardens are very informal with not a straight line anywhere!!!


There were some lovely water features and a few feature plants, but most of all, it was just lots of very normal everyday plants.!



Walking into the garden








Next was "Jindalee". This property is for sale for a cool 3 1/2 million......

The house in an Austam Kit Home and built in March 2003, with the gardens commencing the same year. So its only a relatively young garden, but beautiful just the same.




The next garden was "Gunnible". Ive been there a few times already to set up functions for the National Party. It was one of the featured venues for the National Party State COnference a couple of years ago that i did the decorations for.. so i knew what the expect.


The house is totally gorgeous made largy of huge sandstone blocks. But the garden doesnt feature plants, but a huge variety of trees. The house was built in the 1870's. The property was once owned by Bill Moses from Weebollabolla in Moree. (Thats for the ladies further north!!)







All up it was a totally gorgeous morning with my husband. Ds worked and dd sat infront of th tv all morning..... so what more can a mum and dad ask for??

This is my running around today!! Its all i seamed to do. The Relay for Life is on tonight! I did actually nomiate to be on a team, but wasnt notified on any roster or anything - so obviously i wasnt wanted!! Not to worry - I'l join another team next year. But anyway, so I was running around collecting helium for teams!! Im in my car!!
