About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

-Cue Bryan Adams softly playing in the background...it was the summer of '69...

It was the summer (in America!) of '69 when little Matthew Keith Sayers was born. Yes he's been on this earth for 40 years. Today is his birthday and I think he had a pretty good day.
We began the day with the traditional gift opening. We got him clothes, because that's what he wanted. "I think it's time for me to become trendy, so I just want clothes", he says. He's never specifically asked for anything before so I was really happy to oblige.

I can't wait to take my new 'trendy' husband out on the town. Oh yeah we did that already!! We went out for dinner on Friday night with David and Chelsea. Had a fun night of chatting and laughing, wondering why so many people want to walk the kokoda trail these days, swapping stories, listening to some great live flamenco guitar, and enjoying a yummy Turkish banquet. I was so stuffed, my tummy hurt! I'm sure Matt would agree that the highlight of the night was getting his very own, brand spanking new BMW (photos later).
