loooong weekend

happy wednesday everyone!

its taken me soooo freakin long to get around to posting about my lovely long weekend (we had a public holiday in our state) so im just gonna bash it out now, and hope i dont miss anything!

last week at work was a pretty busy and annoying one. with not alot actually happening! grrr face. so i was super happy when friday rolled around!

friday night DPants and I went to a local theatre and saw the hilariously wonderful Ross Noble do stand up. if you havent heard of him, or havent seen any of his shows, then check him out. hes an english comedian who's notorious for not sticking to any one subject and leaving the crowd completely confused, but utterly entertained. ive seen him about 4 times live now, and own a bunch of his dvds, so its safe to say im a fan! no photography was allowed once the show started, which is why i only have a couple of crappy pics of the stage, and of me and DMan eargley waiting for it to start.

trying out a side part for my new hair style. im still so bored with it and not totally in love with it. but at least a side part looks ok. well i think it does at least.

saturday was spent being a little lazy and slow to get started. but after lunch we headed into the city so DMan could go and pick up his comics and i could have a wander around and window shop. we're trying to be a little tight with money while we save for our holiday, so window shopping was all i was allowed! haha. actually thats not entirely true, DMan let me get all girly and ridiculous and try on an engagement ring that i spotted in a window and loved. once it was on my finger though, i realised it definetly wasnt the style i ultimately want, but yay for D letting me try it on without freaking out! hahaha poor boy.

saturday night was spent on the couch watching a movie (Inglorious Basterds. I FINALLY watched it! and loved it) with D and his friend J. Oh and getting my ass kicked by my sister at words with friends. Look at that score! 143 for 1 word!! arghhh! how am i supposed to even compete with that! but i tried very hard not to be a sore loser and finished the game with the final score being about 175 to 443. i think shes going easy on me in our next game though, because ive been winning the entire time. i think shes worried if she keeps winning i wont want to play anymore. but im not like that :p

sunday morning i went out to breakfast with the girls (H and Z) to have a nice catch up and hear all about H's engagement! it was such a romantic story and im so so happy for her and M. he planned it perfectly and managed to keep it a surprise right up until the last second! after a few years of thinking that every romantic event was going to end in engagement, and being a tad disappointed, H had come to stop expecting it. which was perfect because it meant it was going to be a complete shock for her! and it was! and shes super estactic, and cant wait to start planning. and although Z and i are not going to be bridesmaids (shes just having her sisters) we're super excited to help her out with anything she needs. we even went and checked out a location for her engagement party while we were all together. unfortunately, i blanked out on taking any pics of our outing! silly me!!

sunday night, it was time to party! (since monday was a public holiday!) it was D's friend S's 30th bday party and we were all super excited to get dressed up and head out for the night. S had a loose theme of "hollywood" style, which translated to not exactly dress up, but just to dress a little "fancy". which is what we did! dont be fooled by D's outfit, hes actually wearing shorts! and thongs! hahahaha. he still looked a little spunky though. i was so happy to find my bargain dress that i bought waaaaay over year ago still fit and hadnt gotten too big for me. i call it my bargain dress because i got it for $15, marked down from $150!!! although, when i bought it, i didnt have anywhere to wear it! D took me to dinner at one of Perth's super fancy restaurants (Coco's) when i first bought it, but i hadnt worn it since. i still love it so much, and paired it with my favorite blue sparkly heels.

The lovely S's. SH & SL on the entrance. Birthday girl is SL on the right. Both these lovely ladies went to high school with DMan and theyre all still great friends. i have so much fun with these two and adore them both. 

oh geez i have the crazy drunk eyes! hahaha this pic was taken towards the end of the night, after a few too many alcoholic slushies! but we were having fun. the doofus with his hands in the air is A, SH's partner. hes hilarious. specially after a few drinks.

 all in all it was a great night. ive tried several times to upload more pics, but my computer is being an asshat and wont do it. so oh well. monday was a bit of a recovery day. didnt get out of bed til 11. spent the morning cleaning the house. after lunch we went and visited D's grandparents. which was lovely, had a nice coffee and some cake and caught up on all their adventures (they just got back from 4 weeks in New Zealand)


Then i spent the rest of the afternoon baking! i made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (and sprinkles for fun!) and some chocolate brownies. never made brownies before, so was very happy that these were a success.

ended up in bed pretty early Monday night to try and get some sleep for my crazy work week ahead. was a great weekend though, even if i am exhausted.
