i am so so so happy it's the weekend......
jamie is away at the big GF in Sydney and i am alone for 4 days. i plan to exercise, scrap, relax and paint. today i had this overwhelming feeling that i want to sit in the patio area outside (yes i said outside) with all my paints and just see what happens. been feeling inspired by stuff like this, this and this.
do you ever find just the most amazing things just following other peoples links and favs. i found these links after checking out Deanna's (prairiewillow) favs over at flikr.

Yum, yum!!!!

Dee and I have been incredibly busy scrapping for the last 5 days. So many deadlines so little time. If only I didn't have to go to work. In the middle of all the scrapping chaos I tried to relearn how to crochet. It took me a while, and considering I was never that great, I am happy with the results. I will share my efforts when I get around to taking a piccy.

So a little late but here in the end - the photos from my birthday on Sunday.....
Mmmmmmmmm food...

Dee doesn't even drink tea or coffee but shocked us all and had a cup.

The cutest little cupcakes & gluten free for Ally!

Ally who never takes a bad photo - she should scrap.

The gorgeous Dee

Some photo love of Kaylee before she leaves us and my cooking

Bethany's first High Tea with the ladies

Christie enjoying some time with the girls

Kath posing it up for the camera

And Sue-Ellen who it was great to see. She has 3 little babies to keep her very busy

Full bellies and bright smiles. Trust me we're going back to relax in the lovely garden of Gnomes really soon!

Wedding pics

Hi Everyone,
Firstly I'll start be saying congratulations Bryson, Tammy and baby Kiana. The wedding was really low key, relaxed and very , very personal. The wedding stress was absent, the focus on love, family and committment strong and everyone just had a really good time. Way to go guys!!!!

Also, thank you Dee and the rest of the girls for the birthday wishes, presents and helping me celebrate yesterday. I'll post some pics from tea and my birthday later on.

Have a marvellous (wow, haven't used that word in a while) day everyone out there, and we'll catch you tomorrow...promise! Luv Kirsty & Dee. Oh, Dee made my the most awesome b'day page too check it out here.

Happy Birthday my MESSYHAPPYFUN friend!!!

Hey Kirsty, it's me, Dee......
I knew that i would be the first to not post in consecutive days. So there you go it's done. I missed it, a whole day with no blogging. And a really important one. Kirsty's Birthday!!!!!
I did remember you over here though so i think that counts.
Why did i forget our blog yesterday you might ask.
This weekend i have soooo much to do. I am cleaning the apartment, cos someone is coming to take photos tomorrow to put it on the market. ka-ching $$$$$... I have scrappin deadlines, this weekend i hope to finish this, and this. Good news on those 2, i have finished one and have things STUCK DOWN on the other. I also have on my list a couple of other challenges, here and here. Plus i have 4 little gift projects to finish really soon. So im under the hammer. But i did it to myself cos i just luv all these things to do.
Then my parentals came over to watch the footy last night and i couldnt watch from my scrap room, that would be very rude. Boohoo for the Cowboys....... I wanted to give Thurston a big hug.
Had to shop and print photos for all my pages aswell. So wish me luck with my weekend, i feel like im gonna need it.
Anyway i'd better get movin and get ready for our HIGH T party. Can't wait.
Kirsty'll probably still drop in and show us some pics from her wedding yesterday, so this will be our first 2 post day.
Seeya soon Kirst.
Bye all Luv Dee n Kirsty

A little toilet humour today....

Read this when I got to work this morning and thought it was hilarious!!! Hopefully it adds a little sunshine to your Friday morning too!

When you have to visit a public bathroom, you usually find a line of women, so you smile politely and take your place. Once it's your turn, you check for feet under the stall doors. Every stall is occupied. Finally, a door opens and you dash in, nearly knocking down the woman leaving the stall. You get in to find the door won't latch. It doesn't matter, the wait has been so long you are about to wet your pants! The dispenser for the modern "seat covers" (invented by someone's Mom, no doubt) is handy, but empty. You would hang your purse on the door hook, if there was one, but there isn't - so you carefully, but quickly drape it around your neck, (Mom would turn over in her grave if you put it on the FLOOR!), yank down your pants, and assume " The Stance." In this position your aging, toneless thigh muscles begin to shake. You'd love to sit down, but you certainly hadn't taken time to wipe the seat or lay toilet paper on it, so you hold "The Stance." To take your mind off your trembling thighs, you reach for what you discover to be the empty toilet paper dispenser. In your mind, you can hear your mother's voice saying, "Honey, if you had tried to clean the seat, you would have KNOWN there was no toilet paper!" Your thighs shake more. You remember the tiny tissue that you blew your nose on yesterday - the one that's still in your purse. (Oh yeah, the purse around your neck, that now, you have to hold up trying not to strangle yourself at the same time). That would have to do. You crumple it in the puffiest way possible. It's still smaller than your thumbnail Someone pushes your door open because the latch doesn't work. The door hits your purse, which is hanging around your neck in front of your chest, and you and your purse topple backward against the tank of the toilet. "Occupied!" you scream, as you reach for the door, dropping your precious, tiny, crumpled tissue in a puddle on the floor, lose your footing altogether, and slide down directly onto the he TOILET SEAT It is wet of course. You bolt up, knowing all too well that it's too late. Your bare bottom has made contact with every imaginable germ and life form on the uncovered seat because YOU never laid down toilet paper - not that there was any, even if you had taken time to try. You know that your mother would be utterly appalled if she knew, because, you're certain her bare bottom never touched a public toilet seat because, frankly, dear, "You just don't KNOW what kind of diseases you could get." By this time, the automatic sensor on the back of the toilet is so confused that it flushes, propelling a stream of water like a fire hose against the inside of the bowl that sprays a fine mist of water that covers your butt and runs down your legs and into your shoes. The flush somehow sucks everything down with such force that you grab onto the empty toilet paper dispenser for fear of being dragged in too. At this point, you give up. You're soaked by the spewing water and the wet toilet seat. You're exhausted. You try to wipe with a gum wrapper you found in your pocket and then slink out inconspicuously to the sinks. You can't figure out how to operate the faucets with the automatic sensors, so you wipe your hands with spit and a dry paper towel and walk past the line of women still waiting. You are no longer able to smile politely to them. A kind soul at the very end of the line points out a piece of toilet paper trailing from your shoe. (W here was that when you NEEDED it??) You yank the paper from your shoe, plunk it in the woman's hand and tell her warmly, "Here, you just might need this."
As you exit, you spot your hubby, who has long since entered, used, and left the men's restroom. Annoyed, he asks, "What took you so long, and why is your purse hanging around your neck?" This is dedicated to women everywhere who deal with a public restrooms (rest??? you've GOT to be kidding!!).
It finally explains to the men what really does take us so long. It also answers their other commonly asked questions about why women go to the restroom in pairs. It's so the other gal can hold the door, hang onto your purse and hand you Kleenex under the door! This HAD to be written by a woman! No one else could describe it so accurately!

Dee & I are going to the Embellished Girls Night Out tonight - can't wait! And I'm going to a wedding at 9am, yes 9am in the morning, tomorrow so I should have some pretty pics to share on Sunday!

Have a great Friday and bring on the weekend!!!! Luv Kirsty & Dee

A Heads Up on Spring/Summer

So the day after the fashion parade........Sadness for Dee she didn't buy a single thing! Before the parade we were like (in a very excited voice with facial expressions to match) 'I'm going to buy a dress, & pants, & a shirt, & accessories, & a bag' & so get the jist. But, nothing was really doing it for us. In desperation a bought a Wish dress, which I like and I'll get a lot of wear out of it but it didn't make me go 'WOW!!!!!' & it was old stock & not featured in the parade.
Oh well at leastI bought something. Actually I bought some really cute shoes too. The most amazing part, as Kath said, I bought them from a 'grown up' shop. Yes that's right I wear kids shoes. It sux! Cheap but sux! I need shoes to wear with a cocktail dress atm and I don't think red polka dot canvas shoes with blue rhinestones are going to cut it somehow! Anyway my 'grown up' shoes (which need adjustment & are a little bit big for me).

So yes, I love Billy for giving me my shoes!

Some tips for Spring/Summer fashions from the experts:

And Dee hopeful of winning the $100 voucher!

Catch you all.. looking fabulous of course now that you all know what the go is this season!!!!!!

Luv Kirsty & Dee xxoo

A nothing Monday

Today is a nothing type of Monday. Nothing exciting, nothing bad, nothing that overly enthuses me...just a nothing type of day!

Round 7 of Idol
Dee (seeing this lo did excite me, but that was long ago now - 7hrs almost a lifetime!)


And the recipe for 'the slice' that I made last week. If I was chewing on a piece of this right now, I can tell you that I would be obscenely excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chocolate, Pecan and Coconut Slice Recipe

250g packet Nice biscuits

120g butter or margarine, melted125g milk chocolate, chopped into small chunks

90g pecan nuts, chopped

80g (1 cup) coconut

395g tin condensed milk

Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Celsius fan-forced). Line an approximately 18cm x 28cm baking dish/tin with baking paper.Crush biscuits in a blender or food processor. Combine crushed biscuits and melted butter (we do this in the saucepan that we melted the butter in). Press firmly into the lined dish.Sprinkle base with chocolate chunks and chopped pecans.Sprinkle over coconut.Drizzle with condensed milk, covering as much of the coconut as possible.Bake for about 35 minutes, until lightly golden on top. Allow to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold and set. Remove from tin and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
