3 little Carter's

So this photo is of my mom and her two older brothers. Andrew, the one smiling like the cheshire cat on the end, cut my moms left pigtail off. Look she only has the one on the right!. This photo makes me giggle because my Uncle Andrew is the naughties guy you'll ever meet! He hasn't changed a bit!

goodbye's are sad but happy!

My dearest little brother has departed to start a new chapter in his life and he would choose a a very far place to do it. Man alive am I gonna miss him. And although I am sad and want to cry all the dam time when I think about him I am so happy for him. So so happy!

I wish you all the best boy and truly know you'll achieve everything you set out to do.
I am very excited to say hello again, I hope we can make it happen.
PS I want shoes from top shop, the little brown ankle boots. thanks thanks.
Massive love!

This little fatty sure has the right idea!
Snuggled up in bed.
Oh ja, it's a dogs life, that's for sure!

Helloooo John Travolta! Helooo-ooo!

He just landed moments ago in his private Boeing 707, piloted - of course - by himself, with his wife and daughter! I know they are very zoomed but the terminal was packed and I don't have apron access. This is the best I could do people. So exciting! EEEK. American vice president next. hehe!

Check the terminal building with the press everywhere and the people crammed in glass balcony. Glad I was where I was! I was later told a journalist got pushed off the balcony and smashed his camera.

The cops and their massive machine guns - i mean come on! Do we honestly need to scare the hell out of our guests!

Just to give you an idea of how far away I was... :(

People on the tower hoping for a glimpse!

There he is - Hellooo John!!!! Helloooo! eeeehehehe!

Helping his wife out - ever the gentleman!

waving some more!

Police with machine gun escort into the building and I'm sure to where ever they are staying.

Bye John - it was lovely to see you even if it was from a distance!

horsey is so dam fashionable

Oh man I am loving the fact the horse riding gear is oh so fashionable! Man I have been a horsey girl for a long time and it makes my heart happy to see fashion being influence by such and age old get-up! High waisted jodhpurs, knee high-lace up leather boots, hunting jackets, bowler hats.

This picture was take from a blog I follow, lovemore
"A fashion obsessed Adelaide born girl sharing her musings and personal style with the world around her."
She styled the shoot and I really love it!

Man, man, man, man, man, man, man! I just wanna say a huge welcome to world! Hope you're ready for a big, warm South African embrace!

This is what our highways look like!

And below are the photos taken moments ago. All over South Africa people came out into the streets at noon in support of our soccer/football team Bafana Bafana! The energy in this country is electric. Bring the noise! Bring the gees!

Bring it home to Ma'Ma

to end off a great birthday I had a little games night at our house. i set the candles up and turned on the fairy lights...

the boys made a fire outside and we sat there until it was to cold to go on...

we ate snacks and drank wine. gary got very protective over the avo dip i made. hehe...

we laughed until our tummys hurt and the tears were running down our faces.

we played kings and thirty seconds with death wink in between.

everyone went home full & happy.
Thanks to Mel for some of her photo's ♥
