We're the Eagles, the West Coast Eagles

Monday, October 02, 2006

So the Eagles won and Andrew is totally stoked. He was Eagles crazy before but it's gotten worse over the weekend. We had to buy 2 copies of both The Age and the Herald Sun yesterday and we are now the owners of not 1, not 2 but 3 Weg posters - they are the cartoon posters of the premiership team. Although my team lost, I was glad that the Eagles won. I hate to think what life would be like around here if the Swans had beaten the Eagles again! It was such a good game to watch though. A real nail biter. So life is good at the Spinks house this week. The photo up top is of Andrew and his mate Brendan (Frij) who is one of about 8 people Andrew went to the Grand Final with.

So while Andrew spent the whole day on Saturday at the Grand Final, I managed to alter some little drawers that I bought from IKEA. I am so happy with how they turned out and now i have heaps more storage space for my scrap stuff. I just painted the main box unit, then covered the front of the drawers with patterned paper (K&Co - it's so pretty). Then I just mod podge over the top. I think I may have to go and get a couple more and do them up as presents for people!!

Also ended up going out for coffee with Jess and Angus. She had a AMM tote to give me (which Andrew is getting for me for my birthday!) That was lots of fun and I cannot believe how much Angus has grown up. His so not a little bub anymore. Also caught up with Carolyne at Scrappy Hollow - had to go scrap shopping!!

So my weekend in a nutshell.

Ohh and last night I got a text from my girlfriend in Adelaide - her waters broke yesterday (2 weeks early) so I am eagerly awaiting news of a new baby very soon. So exciting!!

5 things I am grateful for
1. A happy hubby
2. The opportunity to see Jess & Carolyne on Saturday
3. The chance to be creative on the weekend
4. My church family - I have such an awesome church
5. That I'll be an honourary auntie really really soon! Go Cath Go!!

Till next time
