I cant believe it's February already! My little man will start kindy nxt week. He is so excited, we went shopping on Friday for a bag and shoes! Of coarse he had to pick the most expensive bag SPIDERMAN!! I also picked up his uniform during the week ...they only come in size 4 so it is huge! but it still looks cute!

I know I have an addiction to buying products but it could be worse it could be alcohol or cigarettes HEY!! I didn't buy much this week!

Last night we had a bbq with friends it was so nice and great barbie weather and as usual we have tones of left overs so that's what we are having for tea tonight!
This arvo I decided to do some craft with my son and I made a couple of cards!
This one I made with Basic Grey bittersweet pp's

This one I made with scrap with reach PP's and my new fiskars punch lacy days of summer (love it!)

Well busy busy again we have been looking at cars! Yes my hubby is buying me a new car! Dont you hate car hunting! Although the internet has made it easier these days...thank goodness...cause you don't have to deal with all those sleazy salesman!
The first reason to buy another car was to transport Lachys 4wheeler then it also had to be a family car and it had to look hot cause I'm having a midlife crisis!!
So here is what happened...Casey signed up for a car we had been looking at subject to wife's approval so I goes and checked it out today...looking at it yeh not bad...I point out a few scratches then I get in to take it for a's a 6 sp manual with twin sports exhaust leather seats....take off down the road all I said was "noice" cause the salesman was in the car...but really i loved how it sounded and drove i wet my pants and was thinking SOLD!!
So the story goes we pick it up Thursday! Here is a sneak peek at it! It's even better in real life!

Sorry if this doesn't excite you! but I'm a bit of a car lover and major Holden fan!! lol
Anyway even more exciting I have received my first blog award this week and then two more!!
Thank you so much to Gayatri for this award...I really appreciate it and I'm glad you check out my blog!
I also received the same award from my beautiful friend Chic...for my inspiring lo and photography. Thank you so much Chic xx
I also received this lovely award from Tracey WOW! I love Tracey's blog! Thank you so much Tracey xx

Well I'm very happy some people like to read my verbal dribble!!
