To my American visitors- Happy Thanksgiving! Even though this holiday is not celebrated in Australia, im still going to take this opportunity to be thankful. Today I am thankful for my husband, because no matter how much he can shit me to tears, I still love him to bits!

What are you thankful for today?

All that glitters!

Breaking Dawn

I watched Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 last Friday, and I have been obsessing over it ever since..
It confirmed for me that I am definitely Team Edward. How could you not be? The movie was really good, although I must admit that the books are way better

I think im going to start reading the books again - for the 100th time!

the festive season

Its crazy how quickly Christmas is approaching, and how quickly time is slipping away for me to buy a new Christmas tree. Last year I had a pathetic attempt at decorating, and this year I want to redeem myself.

Im confused as to what kind of a tree to buy, im thinking if I should get a black, white, or traditional Christmas Tree? Your help please??

As if those pictures don't make it hard enough to choose - check out what I just saw!!! A PINK CHRISTMAS TREE! I WANT IT! I WANT IT!

A few things...

Just a few things that I should probably tell you all about.

1. I finally went to the new Ikea in Tempe last night. Boy was I impressed! Parking was easy, the over powering crowds were non existent, the range of food in the restaurant was more impressive than the Homebush store, I got a free coffee as part of the Ikea Family, and I bought some pretty cool things.
I think that Ikea is great for people who have just recently moved out of home or are looking at starting all over again  Unfortunately I am neither, I am the girl who just goes to Ikea to buy stuff I don't actually need, but buy it just cause its from Ikea. Kinda sad, I know.. but im sure im not the only person who does this

2. Im going to watch Twilight Breaking Dawn tomorrow night. I don't know if there are any words in the English language- or any language in fact - that can describe how I feel about this. I can no longer contain my excitement, not only have I talked everyone's ears of in the office and emailed everyone the trailer, I am now also blogging about it. The only thing left is to update my Twitter and Facebook!

3. I only have 26 work days left until the office closes for Christmas and New Year holidays! YAY

Anyway, here is what I bought from Ikea
$4.99 shelf insert. great for extra storage in the pantry!

$4.99/ pack of 4. These little (5cm ) bowls are great for serving soy sauce or chilli flakes 

$4.99 vegetable peeler

$6.99  Tray 

$12.99 Cotton pad holder

See what I mean when I say I buy completely random stuff? There were other things I could have bought very easily, but I managed to control myself!

Sisterly love

Its my parents 30th anniversary next year in May. I thought it would be a great idea for me and my sis to surprise them with something really awesome. I know that its really early to start planning but if I want to make it extra special then I have to start extra early.

My sister and I decided that it might be a good idea to send them on a cruise. They have been to one before around the pacific islands and they loved it. They mentioned that it was one of the most relaxing holidays they have had.

My other idea, that I haven't told my sister about yet, is to get some photo's taken with my sister, get a picture put on canvas and my parents can put it up in their house. They currently have these awful family photos of us from when I was 17 and had braces on. Yuk! I think they should have some updated pictures.

So, I used my trusty Google to find some pictures of celebrity siblings that have done a photo shoot together to get some ideas.. Here is what I found:

Sis, if your reading this, let me know what you think of my idea =)
