Week That Was

Last week was a big week! So big that I've decided to wrap it all up in a post which I don't usually do. Here goes in hopefully the order of the week.
                                                                                                                           
Andrea from Fox in Flats started her Arm Party Dare which I wrote about and joined in.
1, 2, 3
4, 5, 6, 7
It was so much fun and I still had a bunch of bracelets and wrist wear I didn't use. Thank you Andrea for this awesome dare!
                                                                                                                           
The wonderful Lisa from Madam Bipolar put a call out for guest bloggers. I love and admire her blog so jumped at the chance although I didn't think my work would be good enough. I wrote about my experience with Trichotillomania titled The Road to Blue Hair.

Lisa's encouragement and lovely words were all worth it as were the comments left on the post. If I help one person by reading my story then I'm more than happy. Madam Bipolar is one of the most informative, interesting and real blog out there on the interwebz.
                                                                                                                           
Thursday night my mum, lufflump, sesame and me were fortunate enough to receive an invite to the Dreamworks new area at Dreamworld. The lovely ladies from Reprise Media gave us the full VIP treatment by feeding us good quality food and drinks, giving the kids goodie bags, letting us run wild in the new area and securing awesome seats for the Madagascar live show.
Balloons, food, drinks, goodie bags, kids and parents!
Sesame slept the whole time even through the show and lufflump ran wild! We went on the Dronkey Flyers, MAD Jungle Jam and a pink horse on Shrek's Ogre-Go-Round. We met Shrek, Princess Fiona, Puss, and the three Penguins from Madagascar.

Lufflump loved the show. It was hard to stop him from getting up on stage but being his first live show that's understandable. He just wanted to play with Alex! He also loved his toy, Gloria the Hippo. He slept with her in his arms that night and has played with her ever since. A new fave for sure!
Bloggers took over the first two rows!
Thank you Megan and Reprise Media, Dreamworks and Dreamworld!
Fave photo of the night!
                                                                                                                           
After Dreamworld we stayed at my mum's house until Saturday. I also managed to come down with some horrible illness causing headaches, swollen glands and temperatures. It's always a good break staying down at mum's. 
First smile captured on film, burping sesame, lufflump all set up, squished in the back seat of mum's car
We went to the beach, the mister did some jobs for mum, I was able to go to bed super early, sesame slept reasonably well and lufflump always loves running around there. 
                                                                                                                           
Saturday we left mum's and went to a Rave event at New Farm park so the mister could get some fire twirling in. Last time he fire twirled lufflump was only a few months old, if that. We had a lot of fun, dancing and enjoying being out with friends. As you can see in the video poor lufflump just wanted to play with the fire like his daddy. Please excuse the crappy video.

                                                                                                                           
Sunday the Easter Bunny came! Lufflump doesn't like chocolate and EB knew so he brought olives instead of eggs and hid toys around the courtyard for an Easter hunt. EB hit the nail on the head with lufflump's presents, he was so happy!
Olives!
My dad came over with chocolate and we all watched movies together. Easter remains a fun holiday!

  3. Man! What a huuuge, fun week/long weekend! I seriously feel like I need a holiday from our long weekend - something about Easter - so much always gets jam packed in... along with lots of chocolate (or olives!) of course.

    1. Easter is pretty exhausting! It really is four days of activities with one full on day of chocolate and hyperactivity!

    1. I'm so surprised I did. Aus Zoo would have been awesome to get an invite to too!

      Thanks lovely. I've still got to convince the mister that blue will not wreck the shower like pink did ;)

  9. What a great week (aside from being sick!) I love that the Easter bunny brought olives!! Your arm bling is so colourful - I'm not a big jewellery/accessory wearer, but arm bling always brightens my day. Hope you're feeling better.
