A Weekend Update

Hi Blogging Beauties,

Just thought I would share some of my weekend antics...
Our friend Ben W (shown below with his girlfriend Sonja) won a weekend at the Gold Coast and asked us if we wanted to come along.  Of course we said yes we would love to!  I have a few photos to share...

The first photo is Ben and I when we first arrived at the unit in Surfer's Paradise on Friday and I fell in love with the fabulous view...and below is the four of us before we went out Saturday night for dinner.

Saturday night we went to Alfrescos...a restaurant we used to visit frequently when we lived there.  Some of my old school colleagues (and best friends) came out.  Below is a photo of fellow card-makers who sell their cards at Aussie Cards for Sale...
Amanda, Lucinda and Danielle.

Here we all are having a yummy Italian dinner.  It was so lovely to catch up with these beautiful friends...unfortunately we didnt get to see all of our friends as we were only there for two nights, but there is always next time, right?

I of course had to go and spend a few solid shopping hours at Harbour Town (my fave shopping centre in the whole world).  I did quite a bit of damage in about three hours and snapped up some incredible bargains.  These are were the shoes I bought from Nine West...I just had to share a photo of them with you!

It took us ten hours to drive home on Sunday...we were exhausted after a very late night on Saturday night and eventually arrived home at 10pm.  On the way to the Gold Coast we sensibly halved the trip and stayed at the Novatel.  This was where we had breakfast Friday morning...

And this was a pretty flower Ben took a picture of at the Novatel by the pool.

It was a fabulous weekend and I enjoyed every moment (except the drive home).
We swam in the beach both mornings and then went to the Surf Club for breakfast.
We ate out both nights.  We had prawns off the trawler on sandwiches for lunch, we played putt-putt really couldn't have been better!  But, it is nice to be home and back in the country, hanging out with all our pets.  

I hope you had a lovely weekend.
Thanks for visiting,
