last night anouck and her amzing friend eisha put on a night for our young women to make "vision boards". i am sure the girlies had heaps of fun (after all - what teenager doesn't have fun making a mess...) with magazines, stickers, glitter (oh the joy of cleaning up glitter... sigh)
so ... how does one make a vision board i hear you ask...?
cut out words and pictures that describe your goals and visions for a period of time (a few months, a year) and get set to create!
i had so much fun watching the girls create theirs that i was itching to give it a go, so danni and i are going to get together and make one soon :)
personal favourite of the night?
goes to chantal...
anouck: and what do the boys represent?
chantal: duh. i like boys
jade: and boys that just happen to be werewolves of course...?
chantal: *shrugs* added bonus
caitlin also had an awesome one with pics of all kinds of things...
that represented other things
caitlin: feet...? for a journey - duh!
broken chain and lock?? - i'm escaping!!
crystals was also fab - lots of pics of beauty and makeup
hmmmmm like she needs any help there... stunnah!
and aggie - must be mentioned
aggie: the picture of the elephant?
oh - it reminded me of leigh so i thought i'd stick it on there.
i loved it!...
can't wait to make mine!!

no matter how many times i hear lines such as:
*i want my pink shirt back!!
*yeah but he's my first cousin
*get in loser, we're going shopping
*i can't go out *cough* i'm sick
*boo you whore!
*you go glen coco!
*none for gretchen wieners. bye!
*there's a 30% chance that it's already raining!
*would you like us to assign someone to butter your muffin?
i'll still find them funny!!
and usually begin to laugh in anticipation...
i know it's sad...
but i'm okay with that

thursday night was danni's bday outing with lisa and i at the galleria, hans cafe and maccas morley (as you can see we spared absolutely no expense whatsoever to ensure she had a truly unforgettable night!)
the night began with lisa and i collecting danni, blindfolding her and driving her to the galleria, then handing her a list of tasks to complete throughout the night (as well as telling her that she wasn't allowed to go home until it was complete!) - of course completely ridulous things such as:
-tell lisa & jade periodically throughout the night just how awesome they are
-try on the highest heels you can find in betts
-tell at least three shop assistants that... "it's my birthday!!"
-ask for a diet water on the rocks for your dinner beverage and ensure that you ask the waitress if she wants to see your id
-ask for a birthday discount
it was lots of fun and laughter - and a great time had by all
can't wait for the next one!
and last night...
the crew went out to dinner at chatters in morley (best freaking chinese ever...) followed by san churros in subiaco for a chocolate overload!! way too much... try it some time, they are almost as good as the ones in brazil (and i would know!!)
