{point + shoot}+{week a boo}...

i was lucky enough to have this weekend off from work too {means i'm working 2 in a row coming up} and we had lovely weather in Melbourne so we took advantage of that.

sat my hubby took the girls out in the morning to do a bit of shopping so i managed to get quite a few orders for missy melly finished and packed up to be posted. then i met a girlfriend and we had a stroll through the Modish Markets in Malvern... lots of gorgeous goodies, people and stalls... the market itself was very quiet which was a shame for the stall holders. i pciked up some gorgeous hair clips for the girls from the lovely Linda from lulufroufrou {the girls adore them}. after that we had a coffee and then i came home and we took the girls to the park to ride the swings, slides, see saw, monkey bars and play with some balls. then home for dinner etc

on sunday it was my birthday... i was woken with family cuddles in bed and the girls sang happy birthday to me and gave me pressies... when we got up we had a yummy brekky and then painted the girls nails {like mummy's}... they had decided to take me on a picnic in the afternoon. we had decided last w/e seeing as miss e was still unwell to celebrate Ava's tea party this w/e along with my birthday. the girls love picnics at the moment so it was a great way to have a different sort of "tea party". we had lots of yummy goodies... dips, cheeses, smoked salmon, olives, artichokes, semidried tomatoes, bikkies.... you get the picture... topped off with strawberries and chocolate cake. it was glorious down at the beach... only a wisp of a breeze... the sun shining and keeping us warm. we took our shoes off and let the sand slips through our toes as we collected shells, seaweed, sticks, rocks, sea sponges and feathers. such a perfect way to spend an afternoon with the people i love and appreciate the most.



hope you all had a fabulous w/e

Happy Happy Birthday.
It's such a small world.
i was working at Modish on Saturday (selling raffle tickets and doing the door count).
Had I met you I would have given you birthday wishes in person.
