Freshly painted purple nails...rarely paint my finger nails, but I always have pretty polish on my toes.

I'm not sure how to blog anymore...seem to spend all my creative energy over here! Which is very normal for me this time of year.

On a rainy cold spring Saturday, we curled up on the couch and had a lazy day watching movies and eating snack food. The perfect way to relax and charge my batteries after a long busy week.

I am seeing Breaking Dawn part 1 in gold class on Tuesday night - can't wait. I am such a Twi-Hard xo

New Purple Sandals!

Yay, I finally own a pair of saltwater sandals & in my favourite colour too - aren't they awesome! 

Properly should have re-done my silver nail polish before taking a picture, oh well.

If you want to be as cool as me, Hayley has the most fabulous customer service.

Who wants to come?

I just discovered that Portishead is playing this weekend at the Harvest Festival in Werribee, Vic, Australia! How did I not know this, I love Portishead and it would be a shame to miss it! But at $160 a ticket I wonder if I can find anyone else that wants to go with me, specially at such short notice?

What's my name!

After close too four years of marriage and almost 15 years together, I am still undecided about what my last name should be. Officially I haven't changed my name - it's still Anderson on all the legal documents. But socially my friends and family know me as McAllister!

So I'm kinda both - Kelly Anderson and Kelly McAllister depending on where my mood takes me. And I think I'm OK with that...finally! Well for today anyway!

Before I was married I used to feel left out, all my children have my husbands last name and I was the only Anderson in our house. Now I like it, because I am different & I have something that is all mine.

Did you change your last name after marriage? Or did you keep it?

Nothing much happening at our place today. Hubby's on nightshift so he's sleeping while the children quietly play in the backyard. 

Hair is un-brushed, with no hair clips in site. Green and purple can be worn together and only pink you will find is on a bike.

The children have built a make shift outdoor entertainment area next to the cubby. Lots of book reading, and pretend coffee is being drunk.

The dogs are enjoying the company, I have hardly heard them bark all day. I'm inside catching up with the cleaning and thinking about creating some new designs.

How's your Sunday?

2 Skool 4 Cool

Skye and Phoenix attend their very first disco - and they had so much fun dancing!

November = No Alcohol

This month I have decided to drink no alcohol, excluding cup day when I drank two bottles of wine all on my own. It doesn't count anyways, because it was a public holiday!

I have been drinking a lot of alcohol lately, don't get me wrong I am not drunk every day. One, two glasses of wine or a beer every night (shh...sometimes three or four if I'm having a bad day) is what helped me get the motivation to cook dinner and start to unwind and relax after a busy day.

But I feel like my body needs a break...I feel like shit; foggy and sluggish. I need less toxins in my blood. 

Day 4 and I am already finding it tough. I filled my wine glass with water the other night, just didn't feel the same.


A tweet from Patience :)

My close friend Leisha went along to the Ballarat and Geelong (The Grates) gigs and I made her some special hair clips that Leish was kind enough to pass on to her. I am so excited that she "loved them" xo
