Come drink a pink grapefruit margarita and tell me something

pink grapefruit margarita

Oh hey there! How’s your week been?

You look like you could use something fruity and salty and delicious. Why don’t you try this gorgeous pink grapefruit margarita from There Goes the Cupcake. Right? Take off your shoes, too. Let’s kick this Friday right in the shins.

Things in Chateau Champagne have been crazy times mental plus infinity this week, but we are still smiling because Christmas is coming and we really like the relaxed vibe that everyone pretends to have, until it actually becomes a thing on Boxing Day.

I haven’t done my shopping, I don’t know what I’m buying anyone, and I really don’t care at this point. Service stations are open right through the holidays, right? (I actually remember getting Easter Eggs from a servo one year – sooooooo dodgy!)

Anyhoo, if you missed any of our fun this week, here’s what we were up to:

Grills, anyone? Image:

So now tell me something about your week please: what was your favourite? What sucked? What was embarrassing (those are my FAVOURITE!)?

  • Husband did some shopping and bought condoms. It was a box of like 24. My reaction, “whoah there sailor – that’ll get us through to 2016!” Oh if looks could kill. I laughed and laughed and laughed. He didn’t really see the funny side.

  • I had a melt down in Dan Murphy’s (too much choice) so I decided to lighten my load a little and give myself a holiday from blogging, then I blogged about it! I started going for a walk/run (shuffle) each day after work which I am really loving. I go down to the Sandgate foreshore and the sea breeze and the movement blow the crazy out of my mind. And I bought a robot vacuum cleaner-it’s like having a pet who does useful things while I’m at work.
