The number 8

I have been tagged by Alissa over at grace's birdcage wedding - my first ever tagging :D. Thanks Alissa!

8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:
1. Dinner tonight - I am mighty hungry!!
2. Tax return time, hopefully I will finally have enough money to get a new oven.
3. Zoe's first birthday - I can't wait to make her cake and cupcakes :P
4. Mat finishing his charity events so that he has less to stress about.
5. Losing the last bit of baby fat so that I can look buff again!
6. Making my first batch of marshmallow fondant - I will do it soon!!
7. Potentially opening up my own little cupcake shop.
8. Getting a full nights sleep!

8 Things I did yesterday
1. Bought a new pair of bathers.
2. Ate a doughnut.

4. Stop chewing my nails - what a disgusting habit!

I like nearly all the same tv shows as you too, isn't Fringe and Lost getting awesome lately!>
I am looking forward to seeing you do marshmallow fondant!

apparentlyjessy said...

Oh P.s I voted for you too! ;)

Chantel said...

Oh Alicia! How exciting! I have never been tagged before either! Thankyou :) I'll have a think and make my list tomorrow. My favourite answer from yours was 7. Potentially opening up my own little cupcake shop - perfect! x

Amanda said...

I've got how-to-knit videos on my blog:

I want you to knit! =)


Mermaid Sweets said...

Thanks! I have never done this sort of thing before? I just do the same categories and list 8 things for each?

drollgirl said...

fab answers!!! and it is so weird that you have many of the same tv shows over there that we do here in the u.s.!

Elissa said...

I thought I was the only one who didn't enjoy clothes shopping!! Haha, your wish list is similar to mine, I need to think more positive, stop procrastinating and learn to knit. I keep going around to my mum's to learn but it just never happens. Maybe one day.

Chantel said...
