Bec's Hens Weekend - Gold Coast QLD

On the 31st January - 3rd February I went up to the Gold Coast, Queensland to celebrate Bec's hens weekend with a great bunch of ladies (and two babies)!!
We all flew up together (besides Brydey as she drove up) and then checked into our penthouse - YES!!! A penthouse!!
It has 4 bedrooms, 4 toilets a massive kitchen and living area. It was also 2 storeys. Upstairs there was a huge deck with another little kitchen and a spa on the deck!! And 360° views. Gorgeous place!
There was a downside however... The penthouse was on the 8th storey of the building and when we arrived we were greeted by the manager only to be told the lift was out of order!! Ouch! Treking up 8 flights of stairs was a bit of a scary thought, but they offered us a 50% discount, so that was pretty awesome + it was a bit of excerise!
We had a great time all together! I only knew Bec and Eva (and baby Fynn) and I got to meet and know Catriona, Deb and Brydey during our stay! They were all awesome ladies!

On the first day we all kind of did our own thing, Liberty and I walked down to the main strip to look around, we also went down to the beach to play which Libby loved! That night all us girls played fun hens night games!! We had such a great time!!
The following day we all (besides Deb who was resting) went to visit the Q-Tower! We caught the lift up to the 77th level (thank goodness the lift was working there - haha) and got to see an amazing view!!!!
Liberty LOVED having Fynn around her to play with!! The babies got on well together and they were just so so cute!! We even dressed them up - too cute!!
It was such a fun weekend away! And soon there will be Bec and Kato's wedding to attend! I cant wait as they are the perfect couple so I look forward to watching them get married!!!

The Alphabet Game...

I saw this game on Rachel's blog and I so wanted to play along, so I left her a comment and she game me my letter... which is the letter....
How does one play the Alphabet Super Game, you ask? You have to list 10 of your favorite things that start with a certain letter assigned to you by the blog owner.

1. Liberty (ofcourse)
My beautiful baby girl. The most precious thing to me in this world. I cannot imagine my life without her and I wonder what I used to do with my time before she was born. These last 8 months with her have been the best of my life!

2. Living by the Lake
Matt and I have been living in our appartment right by Narrabeen Lake for 4 1/2 years now. I love it! At first I found it hard to live in a flat, but now I know all my neighbours and I love our view and the fact that I can just take Libby out in the stroller and be by the lake with all the ducks and animals. Its heaven.

3. Lens
My camera lenses. I love them! Both were given to me from Matty and I just love capturing my world through them.

4. Love
Matty and I have been together for over 5 years now. We have done so much together and now we have a little family and I love him more than ever!

5. Languages
I'm so grateful to my mum for nagging at me all my childhood to 'speak french'! Because of this I can keep in touch with all my family and friends who live in Switzerland. I will be forever grateful that im able to communicate with them all. Thanks mum!

6. Luggage
Lucky me has been able to go on lots of little getaways lately!! So im glad for the invention of luggage to make every trip that bit easier!

7. Letters
I love sending and recieving letters, I mean the old fashioned way with a postage stamp and finding it in your letterbox! Emails are convenient, but letters are special. I keep in contact with my Grand Mamy and Grand Papa Poule (who live in Switzerland) by letter writing.

8. Lollies
Well, chocolate actually (but seeing as that doesn't start with "L" i thought i's write lollies). Mmmmmmm c-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e!!!

9. Lorinda
Aka Siany! Such a special and close friend to me. She's my family, my friend and my baby girl's god mother, need I say more??!!

10. 'Le' Wiggles
Okay, okay... they are actually just 'The Wiggles' but my oh my do I love the wiggles... when i just need Libby to have some quiet time, all I have to do is pop on the wiggles dvd and that seems to stop Libby in her tracks and she'll sit still for 1/2 an hour!! amazing!

Okay, if you are keen to play along, just leave a comment and your email address and i'll email you a letter so you can play along on your blog!!!
