Noosa Weekend


Since everyone's most likely to care about the wedding and what I wore, I will start with that part of my weekend first :-)



I wore a dress I bought from ModCloth...'You Are Cherry Welcome' and teamed it with my beloved red heels and some red accessories.


Sadly one of my red bangles didn't survive the trip up so I had to make do with two.


Was a bit chilly so I threw on a red cardigan for the ceremony as well.


Here's my traditional feet shot. My shoes are much more interesting than SJ's...


And just because it's hard to see, a close up of my polish. I'm wearing OPI What's with the Cattitude and actually had some women notice my co-ordination. How many strangers notice your toe nail polish?


Here's my shot of the wedding. Distant so you can't really see faces, if you read the vogue forums you may know that I had a shock at the wedding. Sitting and chatting all night to a bride of 2 months ago, it turned out she knew I had blogged about her wedding! One of her bridesmaids found the photo I included (in this post) and showed her. I didn't include any names but did mention the location, google is a strange tool sometimes.
 
So anyway, my wedding picture is again from a distance and unclear for that reason. But you can see how great a spot they had for their ceremony, right on the beach without being on full sand (my heels were grateful).


And the reception venue. Was held at the Seasons Restaurant (also on the beach) on Hastings Street. Really gorgeous food and a selected ala carte menu. Loved the scattered lolly buffet too :-D


Sunday morning we ducked down  to the beach to say farewell...it was hard. I'm definitely a Queensland girl at heart.


SJ (who hates the heat after growing up in regional QLD) even commented 'Why did we move to Melbourne again?'.


With any luck this will be us when we're older. With possibly a giant umbrella to stop me getting burnt.


Back at my parent's place, my mother's roses are doing beautifully. I miss having a garden, the little vegie pots we have really don't cut it.


And finally, this is the outfit I wore on Friday. Black (fleecy) tights with my new black boots, black tight shirt and my bargain $7.50 yellow lace skirt from Cotton On.


I had two Qantas Club single entry vouchers I had been saving, so SJ and I ducked in there for a feed before our flight. He had a beer but the experience is a little wasted on me when I don't do the alcohol thing. I do appreciate some good sticky date pudding and a comfy chair though, so I was happy enough.


And I loved that this sign welcomed me to Brisbane. I do love my Broncos :-)
