Turning 40 and Happy Halloween soon!!

I turned 40 two weeks ago. A little bit suckie... My Mum said she bawled her eyes out when she turned 30 and had a nervous break down when she turned 40.... I always said I would probably bawl my eyes out when I turned 40 and have the break down at 50...
well, I was too busy to lie in bed crying about being 40. I went to my local shopping centre like I always do once a week and I bought myself some other little bits and pieces... I have ordered my purple Canon camera for my birthday.... but I am still waiting for it to come in .... hopefully Tuesday. When hubby came home from work he brought me 2 bunches of flowers, my wedding bouquet flowers (irises) and some stargazer lilies and a big box of Ferrero Rocher, SO yum! Then Rob and I went out to dinner in the city and had such a nice time. Rob ordered a bottle of wine and I was really naughty and I bought 2 tiny bottles of Kahlua that I brought from home and snuck it into my coke. Later Rob insisted he buy himself a bourbon and coke and got me a strawberry daiquari. Our waitress looked like "Pet" from "Little Dorritt" (which I am still reading btw) and I asked her to take this photo of us on my 40th birthday... it was a really wonderful night... and maybe turning 40 isn't so bad after all. :)I really can't wait for my purple Canon camera to come soon... as I will be needing it to take some photos of a fun event coming up this Saturday coming...guess who's coming back to Brisbane...????
The Hard Ons!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, who'd of thought that they would be back so soon!
and oh yes.... I'm going!!! I am taking my sister this time and not poor old hubby, lol!
I've already bought the tickets to the Halloween Monsters Ball at the Step Inn. I'm taking my sister as she is going through a hard time right now and this will be the perfect thing to cheer her up, plus Rob would hate every minute of it anyway. The last time I went to the Hard Ons with Rob it was a bit of an ordeal for him. I would have loved to take my sister but I was a bit scared of going into the Valley at night and as hubby puts it, he is a good body guard.... but the Valley isn't the Valley it once was in the 80's. There are so many night clubs and there are so many people walking around. Not dark and deserted like the Valley of yesteryear. Plus there is the night link buses and security standing at the bus stops. It will be a really different night tho, as it is a Halloween themed night. What to wear was a big question. I wasn't going to dress up, but really, where's the fun in that? So I decided to go with a purple dress with a ruched bust and a darker purple 3 quarter sleeved bolero. I have only lost about 3 kilos in the last 3 months, which kinda sux, but I am still positive about the weight loss and I know I will continue to lose weight, if but slowly. I bought myself a pair of "Bridget Jones knickers" They are life changing, lol! I don't know if I look any better in them but I feel fantastic in them, which is probably all that matters. I've never owned any before, they are really ugly granny pants, but I am an old married woman, the husband doesn't care what my knickers look like... as long as I take them off at the end of the day, lol... so what the hey? I also bought my sister and I some vampire teeth. I do hope my sister has better luck with these ones. Last year I bought her some and there was no way she could get the buggers to stay in her mouth. Here is a photo of us last year...
I do so love Halloween and this year is looking to be a blast!
Scrapping wise I have only done about 2 layouts... for the LilyPad "Scrap Your Heart Out" competition...
the first week...Past Present Future @ the Lilypad
The 2nd week...Small, Medium, Large @ the Lilypad
I am still working on the final week's layout...
Amethyst is off on her first school camp for 3 days on Monday. She is so excited, hopefully they have good weather. So it will be a busy week. I need to make my bat cookies and spookie spider cupcakes...these are the ones I made last year... I am really looking forward to making the bat cookies. Hope they turn out nice. I will post a photo of them after Halloween.
Anyway, I have to get to bed... I hope everyone has a nice and frightful Halloween. :)
