Babies

Anyone who knows me knows that I am baby crazy and if it wasnt for the fact im terrified of getting older, I would probably have about 8 by now. I am constantly told I should have been a teacher - I just love their little heads! I could hold a new born for hours, never caving in to my aching back, and dirty nappies? Give me baby! I'll do it! So I have been absolutely blessed to have these two gorgeous babies in my life. My niece-and-nephew-to-be, kiddies to my brother-and-sister-in-law-to-be, (im even in the wedding!) Declan Paul and Autumn Emily. Last night we had a little family get together for Autumn's first birthday and I got a little camera happy. Check out the cutest kids on the block - so much love for these two!

1st birthday

I read a lot of "mummy" kind of blogs.. I love hearing about the little bubs, with their super cute names and their super cute outfits and all the super cute activities they do with them (clucky much?!). But this is a post to see if any mama's read mine.. Cos I need help! It is my beautiful niece Autumn's first birthday next week and I have no idea what to get her. They have ridiculous amounts of toys (see pic) so I refuse to ever get her or her big brother Declan anything bright and plastic, but gosh its hard! Clothes will have to be my back up plan.. but I want to get something awesome! Any tips anyone? And by the way - look at her! I want to eat her!

Major boot dilemma!

You know when you see someone wearing something and you think "I would never pick that off the shelf but gosh it looks amazing!". You store it away in your memory bank and then by chance you have a little look in a shop you dont usually spend much time in, and BAM!! there they are!

Well that has happened to me. And it happens to be this pair of French Connection Leather Pather Riding Boots (black or tan - i'd happily purchase either). The problem I am faced with though, is they are sold out. EVERYWHERE. Online, in store. I could cry! I never even got a chance to try them on.

So its time to say goodbye and stop pining over them. This post is just a little tribute to the boots who could have been!

My long weekend (warning - photo overdose)

Oh god.. I just had the most AHH-MAZING long weekend! We drove out to Halls Gap in the Grampians, Victoria, for a gorgeous relaxing weekend with our besties, the Clutton's.

On day one we did an 18km trek to Sundial Peak which was classed as a 'Medium-Hard Walk". At first I was slightly struggling to say the least! But as we reached the first peak, man, Hayley and I were pushing past the boys! We were physically pulling ourselves up rocks.. it was awesome!

When we got back down to the road the sun was coming down and we were all high on life!

The evening involved Hayley getting blind drunk and entertaining us all until she passed out in a chair.. pretty sure she'd kill me if I posted that pic.

Next day, we went out to Mackenzie Falls and the Balconies.. just when you thought you had seen it all..
