Well I have had a busy week...Saturday- Triathlon in Auckland, Monday-my 30th Birthday, Tuesday- Bloggy meet up, Thursday- Joes Birthday, Today I have a few things to do and Tomorrow we do a Maccas party for Joe with his little mates. I need to make a cake tonight..I will attempt a volcano...if it bombs I know where the Cheesecake shop is ;)
And in amongst this my washing machine broke down. Not good for this family of five! I visited the laundromat for the first time ever..thankfully they do a drop off service for a couple of bucks extra. I feel so New York!
Phew! Maybe the school holidays from next week is just what we all need!

Here are a few things that I AM loving!
I bought myself another tooth....that will be four baby teeth down! This last one really bugged me before it came out. It was on a funny "Nanny McFee" type angle and was taking forever to wiggle out. Fortunately her Bestie accidentally bumped it out during a Maori action song..I couldn't help but laugh.
Loving our new trampoline mat. We bought our trampoline off Trademe, quite a few years ago and the mat was pretty worn way back then. It was definitely time for a new one. We found this site online,Apex Trampoline Mats and nice older couple who have set up their business on their property in North Shore. Highly recommend them for great price and service.
Loving that my thoughtful friends "shipped" this baby all the way up from Kaikoura, the crayfish capital of NZ. I added a little garlic butter, chili, and parsley and warmed it in the oven until done. And ate it all up myself! Hubby has developed an allergy to them...Ah well..more for me!


And loving our trip to Auckland last weekend. We played spot the famous person! I spotted Former Prime Minister of NZ Jenny Shipley at a cafe. I was trying really hard to a secretly paparazzi her...I think she might have been on to us!
We also saw one of the NZ Masterchef 2010 contestants at a Tepanyaki resturant and Jeremy Corbett at my triathlon. And a couple of Maori TV presenters. What a couple of country yokels excited about NZ "celebrities"

hahaha she was SO onto you! lol, love it!
nothing like a maori action song to help you lose your teeth :D
Oooh and the laundromat is SOOO new york! you make me wanna take mine in now... but nothing could get more new york than wearing heels in town and grabbing a pretzel off a street vendor... hmm... wearing heels in whangas would make you look so out of place... grabbing a pretzel off a random stranger in whangas would be a life and death gamble... i think id rather spend the night in south auckland...

Celeb spotting is embarrassingly enjoyable! I once lived in a very swish part of Sydney and had many famous locals around me - i never quite learnt how to behave cool like though...
