Celebrating 13 years!

Hi guys,

I have had the most wonderful weekend! I wasn’t sure if it was going to happen with me still on antibiotics and my littlest fella getting tonsillitis. But we rolled with it and left the boys with my parents for 2 nights while hubs and I hit the Sunshine Coast for our anniversary.

There are two things that I love to do when I go to the Sunny Coast….

If I am going anywhere near Forest Glen I have to stop in and see Penny at The Patchwork Angel. I love this store! They stock Tula Pink – need I say more!

The other must do is the Eumundi Markets. Which I didn’t take any photos of but it was lovely to wonder around without kids dragging me here and there. I got some fantastic smelling Lavender massage oil to try on the boys at bedtime to see if it helps them sleep. And we discovered an aussie artist, Michelle Pike, her work is really fun and so Australian! We only bought a puzzle this time but I am thinking about buying her calendar for next year…if only we could afford one of her canvases!

The unit we stayed in was across the road from the beach and had fabulous views.

We could walk to restaurants for dinner, which was so great!

The first night we had Indian food at Hathi Restaurant which was right next door. We both chose Chicken Tikka Masala except different heat strengths, I think next time we will get different curries so we can mix and match a bit more.

The second night we had pizza at Capone’s Pizza and Pasta, it was delish!

When we got home yesterday I couldn’t resist playing matchmaker with some of my new fabric -

This is what I am thinking for my Midnight at the Oasis quilt which I hope to start soon!

And since today was our actual anniversary we took the boys out for dinner to a local restaurant The Roadhouse Grill which was great too. Fantastic atmosphere and the food was beautiful!  

So now 13 years has passed since we said our vows…I wonder what the next 13 will hold? I hope for good things!

Bye for now, Jess

Happy Anniversary! I'm sure the next 13 years will be even better. And you did well with your purchases. I can't wait to see your Midnight at the Oasis come to life! A friend was telling me that she is going to make that next and I should join her. Maybe after I've finished a few more UFOs.

Happy Anniversary - so glad you had a wonderful weekend, and love that you took your boys out for dinner as well - I always like to celebrate as a whole family too :-)

Congratulations to you and your husband on your 13 yr anniversary. It is not easy to get those lovely breaks together when the kids are young. I am glad you managed that. Looks like you had a great time. Lovely retail therapy. Enjoy the next 13 and more.xx
