Today I got to go watch my bf Andrew be admitted to the bar. He's the 4th generation in his family to do so! That's pretty cool. It was extra-awesome because the Judge who admitted him was also a 4th generation Lawyer too.
I made him a "Dress-the-Lawyer" doll secretly on the computer last night and emailed it to him this morning at work. He thought it was a pretty neat idea!!
One of his favourite flavours of cake is banana, so I made a bunch of banana cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery recipe I posted about last week. I topped them off with some cream cheese icing and smashed up banana chips and walnuts. I sent him off to work with these for an afternoon tea shout - I hope they went down well!!
What else have I been up to lately? I've been busily sewing a couple of dresses, one at home and one at dressmaking class. I can't wait to make more!! I just bought an overlocker on Trademe so I'm really excited to receive that and keep sewing. I'm in the midst of writing and photographing a Christmas special for my blog - with gift ideas, decorations and recipes. I can't wait to finish it and post it!! (it will be a series so a bit of a multiple post-fest!!)
Oh and a super important thing - I became an Aunty last Friday night!! My little nephew Jai arrived a couple of days after his due date. I can't wait to go up to Dunedin to meet him!!
I hope you've all had a great weekend and a smooth start to the week!!
