Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Little sister got married…

And threw an awesome party!

Dirty Bit!
Planned a surprise dance flash mob! It was a blast to do. Check out the video here…

and the rehearsal video (half way through we are just fooling around – that’s the point when the dance floor opened up for everyone to dance 🙂

the bouquet toss
This was too funny. I was relieved that I had an excuse to avoid it (we had to change for the surprise dance which we were doing right after the toss). There was quite the scuffle. It’s priceless! It’s funny, if you turn up the volume you can hear “where’s Tammy, Tammy should be in there, Where’s Tammy, Tammy, Tammy, Tammy” My name was said 18 times! I’m the new Bueller.

Matching Toe Time

Paul’s friend was the emcee and dude was funny (I think intentionally?). At one point as the dancing started to pick up the girls started to lose the heals and dance in bare feet. Dude whips off his shoes too and his toes are painted the same shade of red as the girls. So either gay/cross dresser or just awesome? Jury is out…

the steak (s)
So two days before the wedding the Groom decided that he wanted steak for his wedding dinner, which according to the bride would be fine if he mentioned that 6 months ago when they picked the menu. Cut to some good natured ribbing (IE. my sister doing a little Popeye the sailor dance repeating ‘I’m the groom… I want steak, I’m the GROOM, I want steak…”). The story of the Groom’s last minute interest in the wedding menu circulated fast on the wedding day. I think there were 3separate orders that went in to the Boathouse Restaurant to get him his steak. But the salmon, chicken and roast we had was awesome!

awful wife
Funny moment during the vows… Groom said awful wife instead of lawful. I’m sure that’s not the first time that Freudian slip was made?

Shawna (Dupe sister) did an awesome job of the candy table… people were like vultures for that stuff!

Shawna being Shawna…

Gram + beer = Partay!!!
It wasn’t until I had the photo evidence that I realised why gram was having so much fun. she was stealing my brother’s beers all night…

Soapy condom for one…
The Groomsmen got me good. The night before the wedding I stayed over with my sister at the hotel and the groom and his friend stayed over at my loft. The groomsmen got ready at my place and bridesmaids at the hotel. Friday morning after all the festivities I roll over and see a used condom at the side of my bed. At first I thought my sister stressed Paul out so much about keeping my place clean that he used it to contain himself… then I thought perhaps his friend got lucky… started to get a bit stressed at the idea of something worse. Then it was revealed to me that the boys had taken a condom, filled it up with liquid soap and left it by my bed. Here’s my text message to the groom (I tried to stress him out but I think he was on to me)…

My text:
Hey Paul it’s Tammy. Found a surprise in my room. I hope it’s innocent but can’t be too sure so sent it for DNA testing at the lab on Columbia – results ready on Friday. I won’t tell Noelene unless I have to

He left me a phone message nervously telling me it was a joke…

My text response:
Hey Paul I know how it works. I knew you guys would come up with a story for it and the only way to know for sure was testing. It’s expensive but it’s my little sister so I had to. If it really was a joke… U owe me $189.00 plus taxes

I don’t think he fell for it so I will have to think of some kind of retaliation… when he least expects it of course 😉

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
