As of lately, I would gladly exchange going out for staying home & cooking & baking! It brings me great joy & pleasure to make & create foods for friends & family. Last Friday night i stayed home to babysit & also baked some yummy yogurt almond & raspberry cupcakes, brought them over to my friends house the next day for some gaming & you-tubing & eating & tea drinking :)
I also went to see PINK that weekend, & boy was she entertaining! I think her theme was 'circus', FUn house is what her album is called me thinks. A quarter of the show was her hanging from the ceiling doing all sorts of cool tricks, her concert was so much fun i really didn't mind having to stand the whole time!
On the weekend of18th & 19th of July, was the Aroma Festival @ the rocks, my first time going & i was disappointed! Mainly because of the huge crowds, & just the fact that we were in the sun most of the day & i might not have had enough sunscreen on booo :(
I still prefer the Good Food & Wine show i went to last month, but have been told that 'Taste of Sydney' is much much better then both of them, so i can't wait to go next year.
Whale watching with my family courtesy of The Bear Cottage in Manly, & we were lucky to have seen this baby whale having fun in the water! My dad saw it and while we were told to yell out 'there she blows!' he was so excited, he yelled 'there it is!' haha :)
I LOVE the bear Cottage, it's located in Manly about 10 minutes walk from the beach, they are just sooo accommodating, and Annie just LOVES going there, she can pretty much stay as long as she wants, whenever she wants! & they always take her to places like the shops, the beach, picnics, all sorts of things. My parents love it too cos they get to relax as well & its just so much fun. Too bad i had work though i would of stayed the full week!
I went to Cockatoo Island with Richard this past weekend, LOVED exploring the place & the weather was awesome as well. More pictures from the photoshoot here.
I also celebrated my birthday this weekend, & had my bestest friends over for a high tea party :) Thanks so much to everyone who could make it, & big thankies to Trish who brought some yummy scones & banana cupcakes! I made the rest, spent Friday night Saturday night & Sunday morning preparing, its so much fun i LOVED preparing & seeing everyone enjoy the food i made (with LOTS of help from Richard!)
I also made sandwiches as well but forgot to take photos of them as they were wrapped up before serving..
Again, thanks guys for coming it was great to have you all there & i hope you all had a good time!
