Melbourne Cup day with the girls
Spring Carnival is always such a fun time of year but I haven't been that interested over the last 5 years because i've either been pregnant, breastfeeding or just couldn't get the motivation to find a babysitter and get glamed up for the day. But this year I found it. I had the dress, the fascinator and great company so we decided to tackle Melbourne Cup day. We ended up booking the same place i'm having my 30th in a couple of weeks. It's such a great venue with wonderful atmosphere and always a great band playing. Plus Timm who's the chef there can cook a mean meal. We had champagne and hor dourves on arrival and then sat down to an amazing 3 course meal with lots of bubbly champagne to follow. We had a blast. We danced the afternoon away despite the uncomfortable shoes. And I even put a bet on. I'm not a gambling person, in fact it's very rare that i'll gamble because it just doesn't interest me.
Although I definitely regretted all that champagne on Wednesday morning, ouch!! I had such a great day and can't wait until next year. I think we might have started a tradition here.
