The Cruise and other adventures

We had a great night last night! *Most* people came dressed up, and we had some great costumes there, including the Flintstones, Danny & Sandy from 'Grease', Austin Powers, and many more.
It was a lovely time together, with lots of laughs in a great setting.
Some pics!!!
Pete (The Cast Away) and I (Wilson!!)

Alexie (Elle Woods - Legally Blonde)

Jordan (Napoleon Dynamite)

Lockey ('Drover' - Australia), Bethanie (Tinkerbelle - Peter Pan)

If you would like to see more pics, have a look on my facebook I have uploaded all the pics from the night!

So yes, that part of the night was brilliant... the end however, not so great. That was when I slipped walking off the boat and ended up falling not-so-gracefully to the ground. I'm not quite sure what happened, I think my shoes were just slippery on the slightly wet surface and my feet came out from under me. My ankle bent in a strange direction and my knee went under me, but I managed to slide myself backwards and mostly land on my hip and bum - belly was safe!

I felt like SUCH a goose. I was in so much pain from my ankle, and was of course concerned about bubby. Everyone came around me and helped me up and got me to a park bench and someone got ice. Everyone was asking if bubby was okay. Once I was seated bubby started kicking around which was a relief, but I was in so much pain with my ankle. After a while Pete got me to the car, and we decided we'd better go to the hospital to get my foot checked. By then I was starting to hurt in my knee, wrist, elbow, hip and tail bone also.
We were very lucky because no one was in the emergency room when we got there so we got straight in to the triage nurse who took all my BP (unsurprisingly sky-high), temp etc. and then checked bubby's heartbeat which was completely fine (Thank you Jesus!!!). I only had to wait about 5 minutes to see the doctor. He (who by the way looked like a not-buff version of Arnold Schwarzenegger) had a good play with my foot which was agony (it was about twice it's usual size by then), but said that he doesn't believe there's a break, and would rather not do x-rays because of bubby - which is fine with me! He said it's quite badly sprained, strapped it all up and provided crutches. I'm not supposed to use it for at least 2 days and have to take it very easy for 2 weeks!
Crutches and 7.5 month pregnant belly are not a good combination let me tell you... but I'll cope. I'm just glad bub's okay and that I didn't fall any more awkwardly!

So yes, very eventful evening.. but still had fun in spite of all of that. Am very very sore and stiff today. Falling over SUCKS!!!!

Ooh and on a much happier note, I have my hubby back!!!!



He no longer has a need for the fuzzy Cast Away look, so he has SHAVED! Woot. I can kiss him again. He is such a spunk without all that fluff on his face, and it was driving him insane anyway. He looks so much younger and hotter clean-shaven... *sigh*.
Okay, off to give him a smooch... lol.

Belly Update

33 weeks already... can you believe it??
I can see a huge difference between this and the last one, both in size and shape. Maybe because I can feel a huge difference also...

Fancy Dress

So on Saturday we are going to a youth break up party: A cruise on the Catalina along the Noosa River! Very much looking forward to it. We have to dress up as a character from a movie.

My darling husband decided to use this as an excuse not to shave for a fortnight and is going as Tom Hank's character from Castaway. It is backfiring as the heat is making his prickly face very itchy, and the frequency of kisses has been significantly decreased in the last week, but he is persevering.

So anyway, I ummed and aah-ed over what I should go as.. me with my 33 week pregnant bump. The obvious was Juno, and we discussed Princess Fiona (Shrek 2), either the mum or daughter from Father of the Bride II, Virgin Mary, Paulette from Legally Blonde... none of them jumped out at me. Until someone from a forum I visit suggested Wilson. You know, Wilson, the volleyball from Castaway. Perfect!!! So, I am (or rather bubby-bump is) going as Wilson. And I have pictures. Would you like to see???

I have sewed another layer of 'feathers' on, and I'm going to paint over the face so it looks more like blood and less like permanent marker, but it's pretty cool huh??

My clever Nana

Made me this AWESOME nappy bag. In my favourite colours. With LOTS of pockets. I love it. And I don't care if my husband has to carry a pink bag or if my baby is a boy. It is, after all, MY accessory, not theirs :P :P

How cool is it???

It also came packed full with all of these little goodies.... no prizes for guessing what sex my Nana thinks the baby is :P :P

Thanks Nana!! Love you...

Embarrassing/Silly Wedding Photos

I was reading a thread of embarrassing wedding photos on a wedding forum I frequent, so decided to look for some of my own. Ooh we had a few :P Thought I'd share. Maybe later I'll do a post with some of my favourite wedding photos.

Me and Papa pre-wedding. Clearly, I take after my Pop, who is incapable of shutting up for long enough to pose for a photo :P

My family and I (apart from Jordan my brother who was getting ready with Pete). I promise you we were all very excited and happy about this wedding!

I was seriously over smiling by this point, plus my feet were killing me and I had a major over-tired headache - (Penny was finding me neurofen as I posed :P )

Seriously Hon, I really don't think I was *that* heavy!!!!

This photo is slightly concerning - the way my brother-in-law keeps his face so calm and collected as he attempts to strangle my brother :P :P

Goodbye Little Car...

Today Nanna and Pop took our little green Jiminy Cricket back to Dubs to sell it. Even though I'm totally happy and excited and loving our new car, it was still just a *leedle* sad to see it go.

This was my first car, I learned to drive in this car and it's pretty much the only car I've ever driven!!! We've had it for ages - it was Pete's before it was mine, and he bought it from his sister. I even had my first car accident in this car (oh the memories, lol). Oh and it's so easy to park, I've been spoiled and feel like I need to re-learn with my new longer-nosed car, lol.
It's been a good and faithful car, perfect for the two of us but just not big enough for when we're three.

We will miss you little car, hope it's a nice person who has you next!!!

*waves goodbye*

30 week appointment - last week

I just realised I didn't update after my 30 week appointment last week.
I was lucky to get into my mum's doctor in Noosa, and only really did because I used to go there before I got married and moved away! He doesn't take new patients apparently. Anyway, when we got there, and I updated my details etc, the lady at the counter told me that it was going to cost $44.00. I was thinking, "Crap! I don't actually have that much money in my account!!!". I asked her if I could pay the gap instead, since I have a healthcare card, and she explained that they don't let out-of-towners pay the gap. So I told her that I'd be here for nearly 2 months, and would be having appointments every two weeks! She told me she'd ask the doc and see what he said. So when the doc came out, she went to talk to him, and he looked up and saw who I was and goes, "No worries, just bulk bill her, I know her mother" (!!!!). lol. See it's not what you know it's who you know. So I get free antenatal appointments while I'm here. Ka-chiiing-a!.

Anyway, the appointment itself went well... just the usual, blood pressure check (130/76 or something) tummy poke (bub is still head down), bubby heart beat check (130bpm - I think bub was sleeping, cos it wasn't moving, just for something different for a doc appt.) and pee in a cup (no protein, so all good!)

I will do another belly shot soon....

We got a new car!!!!

So very excited to announce that we are going to be able to fit our baby into our car after all!
We are now the proud owners of a Holden Commodore VR Executive. It has air-conditioning, central locking, power steering, an actual boot (lol) and it's very cool, we feel very flash. My Nanna and Pop are bringing it to Noosa on Tuesday, and taking our faithful little green baby to sell her in Dubs. It's the end of an era, but the beginning of a new exciting one. It's going to cost us more to run etc. but that would be the case no matter what, and we needed to upgrade so bad. The pram wouldn't even fit in the back of our green car, and it's absolutely choccas when we come to Noosa with just the two of us. The whole thing was just such a God thing, and we feel very blessed. The number plate even has the same letters as our green car, lol.

Breakfast Date!

My gorgeous husband and I went out this morning for a yummy breakfast. Well actually, we went to the beach first (Noosa Main), which was beautiful, and then to a lovely cafe on the Noosa River. It was so nice to have some lovely quality 'us' time together. We just enjoy each other so much, and it's been too long since we've done something like this!

The view from the table we were sitting at.


Gorgeous hubby and yummy big breakfast - after we'd already started attacking it! (we ordered a big breakfast and pancakes and shared them)

Yummy, yummy pancakes with mixed berries and double cream...mmmmmm

Thanks for the awesome date baby!!
