This year I swore I wouldn't put myself through the Boxing Day Sales... but all it took was one little text from Steph and I was soooo on board! Armed with Westfield and Myer gift cards, I was one of those people standing outside Myer Carousel at 10.02am fuming "Why haven't they opened yet???" My 'patience' was rewarded though - as soon as I burst through those doors, I made my way to the Christmas section and found the one item that I'd been hoping to find on sale, and I managed to purchase it before a line had even formed at the till. Triumph! I also managed to aquire shoes, jewellery, sunglasses, headbands... all that stuff that I convince myself I need an endless supply of.
We finished at Carousel around midday (amazing!) and you'd think the shopping would end there, wouldn't you? But after dropping Steph home, Chris and I then headed out to Rockingham to shop a bit more. And then Bunnings. To shop a little bit more. Crazy people.
The evening was really fun :) My parents hosted a family-friends gathering (another tradition!) and while all the 'grown-ups' did grown-up things, the 'kids' (aged 19-26...) played games in the family room!! Which finally ties the photo of Hatti above into everything! We were playing Articulate and that was her semi-bewildered 'describing' face. Nothing like a good action shot!
Apologies for the lengths of these posts lately - I just can't find a way to condense my stories, when my days have been so full of amazing stuff lately!!!
I'm an Aussie wife who loves flowers, colours and good coffee. I married a Californian computer-nerd who is the love of my life! Together we created the cutest baby in the universe and I spend my days taking care of him in our always-a-work-in-progress little home. Life is good. Really really good.
