Burlesque fancy dress, good times & a hail storm

What a weekend!! You know when you have the best weekends EVER you don't really mind the lethargic, sluggish, eye burning, head thumping feeling whilst managing 4 kids under 7 the following day! Yes, it's not every weekend thank goodness. Maybe twice a year!
 
Here's a snapshot of our Burlesque theme engagement party.

Burlesque fancy dress
 
 
There were burlesque dancers, shirtless waiters with braces, gourmet canapé food being served, fabulous music etc.... all in this gorgeous penthouse apartment.
 
You'll always find me where ever there is an exquisite chef and of course a waiter....
 
 
 
 
 
So a sensational night indeed, hitting our pillows at 4am!!!! Ahh....they were the days!!! 
 
Hail storm Friday night approx. 8:30pm
 
Ohhhhh....how can I forget to tell you about our hail storm Friday night? Our front door step was like a winter wonderland and kids had fun playing with the ice. We were without power for 24 hours, luckily we were in Melbourne the following day!!! No major damages although it did look like carnage on our roads the next day as we are surrounded by the bush AKA gum tress, so a lot of them were the cause of our NO POWER!!!!
