my first blogger award!!!!! (and other stuff)

a peaceful breakfast with DH of free-range eggs, coffee and the morning paper (all prepared by him. well, not the paper - i had to go get that myself!) AND my first blogger award...

not a bad way to start my friday! THANKS AMANDA!!!

amanda is apparently pre-occupied with my profile shot, so i thought i would share a few more from that night (april 30, 2004) at the wellington gold awards.

none of these pics can be clicked on and enlarged (and they are crappy quality). i guess i had my compact that night and it was low light. the theme was the golden age of 70s disco and movies. i have discovered that once you move the photos when you are drafting a post, they lose that 'open in a new tab' feature. a HUGE shortcoming blogger!!!
who can resist a man in a tux? (is it a tux or just a fancy suit?) who cares?

here i am lying all over a 70s corvette they hired as a prop for the night

ain't he handsome? (reminder - that's a wig i'm wearing!!!)
i haven't had hair that long SINCE the 70s!!!
table centre-pieces. always cool at this event
and now for my first FIVE ON FRIDAY. is there a five on friday? if not, i officially start the trend.
  1. i'm so obssessed with blogging, it's 9.34am on a friday morning and instead of doing more important things like watching last week's DH or showering, i'm posting!
  2. and i was caught out! my daughter's friend's mum just pulled up in the car to drop off a tupperware container - DOH!!!
  3. i am collecting for the royal foundation for the blind later today for 2 hours. it's a bit chilly today, so i'd better wrap up!
  4. both my girls are playing in their respective summer netball league finals after school today - i'm so proud of them! miss 11 is playing off for first in division 4. they won 3 out their last 4 games by 1 point so it should be a great game. miss 10 (whose team i coach) has won all their games in their division (6). they beat the team they are playing today 17-0 last time they met, but i will be encouraging them not to be overly confident!!!
  5. daughter #3 just started singing lessons. i got to hear her last night and almost cried. she has a beautiful voice!

PS: ooops! totally forgot to pass on the blogger awards! i share/pass/forward this award to my crazy friend kristi, who got me started on this highly addictive, yet highly rewarding experience of blogging. thanks kristi!
