Sydney

Well I'm back! Well been back for a bit but have been chasing my tail catching up with everything!

I had a wonderful trip and made the most of my child free status!

I know that alot of you will be awaiting my pictures of Sydney that you would expect to look like this....

or this...

or even this...


But instead my pictures look like this....

and this....


I spent a whole day and I mean a whole day in the magnificent place that is Ikea. I spent alot of money and then had to haul my booty back to Katie and Mal's on the train. I placed the heavy items in Wayne's huge pack and then the overflow was contained in another large bag. I only made it outside the door before realising that there was NO way I was able to make it to the train station - but hey that's what taxi drivers are for! Everyone was amazed at my determination and cunning and marveled at the beautiful items I had returned with. Lucky for me Katie was waiting at the other end - ready to haul my goodie's back to her place. It's a crime that New Zealand doesn't have an Ikea (but probably a blessing to my credit card!). There is more to the ikea story but that's another post!

But for the real reason I made the trip over the Tasman - Katie and Mal's wedding. I couldn't think of a more perfect day - with a wonderful venue


and one of the most stunning brides I have ever seen


Katie - you did such a amazing job in organising your big day. It was perfect in every way! Thank you for inviting me to be such a part of it. I loved every minute.



Here's Leeane and Arounee the bridemaids - poor Arounee got to room with me!

Here is the 4! Ally, Me, Bridgette and Katie. We had a great time together at the reception!

For all my bloggy friends - I'm sorry but I'm so behind I have no hope to comment - I'm reading all your posts but it's going to take me some time to get back on top!

Looks like a great wedding and a much needed shopping spree. Now that you have so much more room you need more stuff! :) Glad you are back.

Sounds like a fun wedding. I love getting to go to stores that aren't in my area. Sounds like you had fun!

The wedding looks beautiful. So happy to hear that you had a good time.

My hubby always teases me that all I do is shop when on vacation. I love Ikea too. I have one right down the street from my work. Dangerous :)
