My Easter long weekend was great, but like many times, I forgot to take photos of a lot of it to share with you guys. (Doup!) I am trying to get better I swear :P
Thursday night, we went to my roomie's birthday at Bungalow 8 for a few too many drinks and a late night BBQ sausage. It was a fun night with our close friends, which started and ended nice and early (and intoxicated).
Good Friday was the day we had the first party at our new apartment- our House Warming.
I woke up early to do the final cleaning and food prep for the BBQ. We bought waaayy too much for the BBQ, I thought that at the time of buying it and cooking it and now when I look at all the left overs in our fridge, but I guess it is better to have too much then not enough right?
I made a baked potato bar with lots of yummy topping options like chives, pineapple, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream with sweet chili and corn. I thought the potatoes were delicious. Unfortunately, only myself and my bestie tried them, while everyone else chomped on the Nam Noung (i'm not sure if I have spelt that right, but basically it is the most delicious marinated pork kebab/sausage sort of thing).
Despite my potatoes going uneaten, it was a GREAT party! We spent the day in the sun, down by the pool, eating nibbles and hunting for Easter eggs. When the sun went down we moved everything and everyone upstairs for some jello shots and some moves on my pole. The pole got a MASSIVE workout by the way. We couldn't have asked for the party to go any better, but I did wish I had a maid the next morning when I saw the state our place was left in :(
Luckily, I didn't have to stay in our messy apartment, as I made an early morning getaway to my mum's house for another BBQ and a day of betting on the Golden Slipper. It was fun hanging out with my mum, brother and dog Bobby, but it would have been even more fun if my horses decided to win! :P
Sunday was our lazy day spent watching countless movies and being looked after by A and my roommate, as I nursed a sore belly.
On Monday, I was back in action and off to the Sydney Royal Easter Show. I like the show and I always have fun, but I don't love it anywhere near as much as A does!! He lights up like a little kid and went to the show armed with a "show bag shortlist" and all. It did turn out to be a great day, but damn was I tired by the end of it. I passed out at like 9.30pm and I am still tired today!!
Plus side is, I remembered to take photos...
