Happy Halloween!

Hi Everyone!!!
Well, today is halloween!!! I've got to say from looking at lots of blogs of you American Ladies I see its *huge* over there!! Over here its not anyway near as big but the shops are starting to offer lots of decorations for it and stuff!!
Im hoping to have a few "trick or treaters" cos I have some lollies and little witches (in the photo) to give the kids!!! I used to go trick of treating when I was little with my
brother and some friends of ours.. and I still remember some one gave us $2!! WOW!! I remember being so excited!! And even though its not that big here... we still ended up with bags full of yummy goodies!!!

I have been tagged again this week by the lovely
Kate!
I've filled one of these out before but it was AGES ago, and I like filling these thingys out!!!
So here goes...

4 Places I Have Worked:
3. Harry's Bar Montreux Palace, Switzerland

4 Places I Have Visited:
1. Northern Territory
2. China
3. South Island, NZ
4. Hamilton Island

4 Favourite Foods:
1. Tacos
2. Raclette cheese
3. Chocolate!! mmmmm!
4. Raspberry yoghurt

4 Places I Would Rather Be (right now):
1. Hamilton Island
2. In a nice swimming pool somewhere!
3. At the movies!! I havent been in ages!
4. Im actually pretty happy to be home doing not much at all today!! :)

On monday Mum,
Sian and I went to IKEA, which is always good fun!!
Here are a few of the goodies I bought:

Those 2 cylinder pillows.... unfortunately the colour is brighter than i thought it would be but they are handy!! Our couch is really wide so perfect for lounging about.. but these pillows help support your back when you just want to sit up!

This awesome napkin holder.. I actually copied the idea from my friends Kato and Bec who have had one for years!! I just think they look awesome and its the best napkin holder ever!!! ;)

Finally! A new computer chair!!! And its so comfy!!! Very happy with this purchase!!! I didnt like any of the 'actual' computer chairs, I didnt want that office look... but I found this one in the dining section and its perfect!!

Thats all my show'n'tell for today! Scroll down to the next post to see a layout I did for a Cyber Challenge!!
Happy Halloween!
Xx Jess

Thanks for doing the tag, love your LO below and your Halloween pic is so CUTE. Halloween is the same here not as big as in the US but people are starting to decorate their houses a bit. Actually heard on the telly this morning that it was the Irish that brought Halloween to America in the first place. It was originally a Celtic festival, I thought that was interesting.

Those cylinder cushions you got for the lounge...my sister got me some smaller versions years ago, for my bed and they are wonderful, I still use them all the time, for under my knees, or in the hollow of your neck when you lay on your side, they're wonderful.
