Thanks for the bag of Schmacko’s @hh__… Guess who nicked the whole packet off the kitchen bench and ate the lot last night? Farty McFart over here reckons it wasn’t him.

Hey girls, we’ve been doing it wrong!

Today, Dean and I visited Tegan at her new business venture’s headquarters, @pawsandrelax, Eagle Farm, Bris. They have the coolest doggy daycare I can imagine, with positive reinforcement and training, physical and mental exercises for the dogs, and so much love (seriously, google their website and look at their timetable! Amazing!)! I wish I lived close enough to send my babes there when I was at work, but I don’t, so I bought them some enrichment toys instead, which they love! If you have a dog in Brisbane, you should seriously consider their services - your dog will love you for it! Even if you can’t get there, follow @pawsandrelax on here and Facebook for puppy photos and loads of dog-related info from the super-intelligent dog nerds that work there! You blow my mind, Teegs! πŸ’ž

These crazy dickheads just gave me the best weekend. We drank a ridiculous amount (at an old country pub, a beautiful winery, then at our impromptu house party complete with party hats and pin the tail on the donkey), shit got crazy a few times, and at one point I thought Hannah was going to die from hangover, then today they helped me sort, clean and move so much crap out of my apartment, and they are now delivering it all to my house on the coast. They are such fun, positive, crazy-wonderful people who have been there through thick and thin for me (Jaide for the last 13ish years - pretty good effort!). I’m hungover and tired and being a sook, but how lucky am I that when I was too anxious to drive this weekend, I have friends that drove for four hours to keep me company? And not only was I not anxious, I had ridiculous amounts of fun. And got a lot of my moving done. And what’s more insane is I have about 30 other friends who’d do the same thing for me in a heartbeat. I’m just so lucky to have such great people in my life that I love on such insane levels. Kisses to all of you, my pals! You make me so damn happy! πŸ’œπŸ’œ

Some uplifting literature from the friendly beach-goers of Miracle Christian Centre, Maroochydore. I thought Schappelle Corby’s sentence was pretty tough, but an eternity in hell just for not wanting a pamphlet? Shiiiiiiit.

Even after a 4-day weekend, leaving my perfect little home and family at 5am to live in a lonely little town that isn’t mine for the rest of the woking week never gets any easier. Safe to say I’m over it and ready for a life where I get to wake up to my favourites every day. 36 working weeks to go, I guess!

I really had a phenomenal weekend. Thank you to @jennaquartermain, @freshlysliced, @glenyschan_ and @hh__ for organising, and everyone else for coming. Definitely one of the best weekends of my life and I feel so happy and content knowing I have so many smart, funny, thoughtful, driven, devoted, all-round brilliant babe ladies in my life, and that I’ll have you all around forever ever. I don’t think a better bunch exist. Thank you for making my life so blessed. I am so rich in friendships! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

This dickhead has been the best pal to me in the last couple of years, is there for me every damn day, and has helped me with just about every wedding (and life!) decision I’ve made since I got engaged. Today I got my shit together and asked her to be my bridesmaid! πŸ˜ƒ Whee!
