Living is fun!

Last night I was thankful to share the evening with my two best friends, Mr J and Loz. We sang carols by glowstick, played cards and watched The Vicar of Dibley. These two people make me laugh more than I think is possible.

It felt like we rose when the sun did this morning, but we did it for fun! We attended a Car Boot Sale in our local town. Something I definitely want to do again {& have added The Worlds Biggest Car Boot Sale to my bucket list}, it inspires me to spring clean in every season! My only problem was resisting buying the old classy photo frames and jars available.

Ballet

This afternoon, Loz and I re-visited our highschool to watch a great friend in her ballet concert, Choreography 2012. Wow, I admired every single dancer. I’m also super proud to say that I have a friend with so much talent, beautifull-ness, elegance and was a choreographer of one of the items, The Portrait. Amazement.

Bring on  another week of earning money! Happy Sunday night everyone.

SAYCO 2012

Before
SAYCO was creeping up fast. My shopping was successful as I completed my costume. My nails were painted and the countdown began! The day before camp, Mr J and I shopped for eight hours straight. We bought swimming pools, hair colour, super size baked beans and spaghetti, lollies, 50 cans of shaving cream and a similar amount of detergent, hundreds of water balloons and clothes to get messy. That was only the start.

During
Wow. What a super dooper, high energy, God praising, jumpalicious, boundary testing camp. I laughed more than I have for a long time. FUN {is only one of the thousand words that would describe it}. We met new friends and got closer to current ones, danced, moshed, sang and praised God, fought with shaving cream, flour and water, obstacle coursed with spaghetti and baked beans, listened to some moving messages, received grand final updates, got minimal sleep, chased a lolly man, exercised with bible aerobics, jumped into a photo booth, learnt about our true identities… all for our amazing, perfect father and best friend > GOD.

After
It has been two days since we departed the camp and I am still recovering. I am having slight SAYCO withdrawals and miss everyone like crazy but already looking ahead to next year. I’m finding glitter everywhere.

Successful and Socialble Weekend

This weekend a friend and I coached the winning team of the Under 15 division 3 netball grand final. Intense. Minutes to go in the last quarter it was goal for goal, fortunately we were ahead by two when the final whistle blew. No voice left but the biggest smile on my face. Our girls fought until the end and are ready to celebrate at presentations next weekend. Mr J shouted Dad and I dinner that night where I demolished a gourmet pizza. We then ended the night playing board games and eating show bag goodies which my brother brought home from here.

Today {Sunday} began with a great church service, followed by lunch and the afternoon with Mr J’s family and close friends and ended with dinner and dessert at home, with my parents and brother. Once again, the weekend has flown, I’ve eaten way to much food but had a great time.

What did you get up to this weekend?

Enjoying the small things

Over the last couple days, I have been able to enjoy things the little things. Things that I haven’t done for a while…

I took in the scenery as I went for a drive in Adelaide. We really are the city of churches, but what beautiful churches some of them are!

I visited T2, finally! What an amazing store. I even got the taste-test choc chip chai, mmmm.

I helped complete a puzzle with my family and MrJ’s brother. I forgot how fun these were and how much time flies. This one was super tricky with MANY colours and curved edges. I’m glad I didn’t do it alone!

Don’t let the little daily opportunities and events get away from you. Take a moment to breath, laugh and enjoy.
What are some little things you enjoy doing?
