Thoughts of the week…

It’s Ben’s birthday tomorrow! He’s turning 3, which in dog years is 28 which means he will technically be older than me for three days. I hope he doesn’t start bossing me around.

01) I’m officially on holidays! How exciting. I have one week at home to get some things done for my new home, meetings to attend, decisions to make etc. and then I fly out to Sydney on Friday and the Whitsundays the week after that for a friend’s wedding. ROLL ON COCKTAIL HOUR.

02) I watched the US Presidential Election coverage with great interest on Thursday, and as an Australian with American based family (and parts of my job) relying on a stable US future, I was more than happy with the result.

03) This week’s episode of The Walking Dead was INTENSE. Andrew Lincoln’s acting in the final scene absolutely blew me away. Wow.

04) There are some amazing concerts and festival lineups being announced for 2013, which I’m seeing as karmic retribution for The Civil Wars cancelling their Australian Tour. My tight ass budget just got tighter.

05) My skin has been really horrible lately. For some reason it’s been really red and ruddy looking during the day and I can’t figure out why! I haven’t changed anything in my routine, so it’s a bit of a mystery. HELP.

06) I’m obsessed with Lauren Conrad’s style, I find it so simple and attainable. Her feature on the StyleCaster this week was gorgeous.

07) Oh nothing, just DARREN CRISS SINGING HOPELESSLY DEVOTED TO YOU.

08) More people are getting on board with the nacho Saturday movement. Eat nachos on Saturday people, it’s the right thing to do.

09) I started buying Christmas presents this week, the season has officially begun! I tend to write my Christmas shopping list at the beginning of November so that I can order everything I need to order online and have it arrive in time. I bought a few fun things from Sephora this year, they have some great gift sets available at the moment.

10) I really feel like watching Grease.
