Saturday night was my Dad’s 54th birthday party. We had about 37 people, ranging in ages from 17 to 78years!!… it was a, for lack of a better word, HOOT!

There was sushi, champagne and cupcakes!
There was music, old friends and good family.
I played photographer!
I wore my fierce jumpsuit!!
I was the Dancing Queen

And most importantly, my Dad had a great time!


A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

made for each other.

Charlotte and Harry. I love this couple! These two remind me alot of myself and the Boyf. If ever two people were oh-so-perfect for each other, it’s C&H (and yes, I know they aren’t real, I choose to live in this fantasy world)

Harry: [talking about his mother’s insistence that he marry a Jewish woman] Keeping tradition alive is very important to her. She lost family in the Holocaust.

Charlotte: [makes a face]

Harry: What?

Charlotte: Well, now I can’t say anything because you’ve brought up… the Holocaust.

Yes, I am currently re-watching season 6, where they breakup, get engaged and live happily ever after. Its nice to get up on a Saturday morning, make yourself a coffee and escape reality for an hour or so.

This was my breakfast this morning. No butter, no salt but very yummy!! It’s part of my new eating habits… Ive noticed lately that I am always tired, have headaches, feel foggy and have trouble sleeping.

Yesterday I bought the book ‘You Are What You Eat’ and while reading it this morning, I was reading challenged to change my eating habits. The book promotes eating ‘closer to the ground’ and food that is in much more of a natural state. I don’t think that my eating has ever been out of control, but just little things like sugar, caffeine and salt have a huge effect on the body. I think that Australia is becoming (and perhaps overtaking) America as far as our take out and coffee houses. So to sum it up, I will be cutting out or limiting- Anything white, caffeine, sugar sugar sugar, salt, dairy, preservatives, artificial sweeteners and red meats.
It sounds like a lot.. but when you think about it, it’s just making a choice to make better choices.

I will let you know how I am feeling week by week!
