down under

last week i was lucky enough to go to australia w/the fox crew for our fall 2009 shopping trip.
we stayed in bondi beach for a few days, and also went to melbourne to meet with
the fox australia team. we had an action packed 4 days...shopped til we dropped, went to a friday nite footy game in melbourne and got to sit in our own private box?! stayed at this luxe casino, ate some fabulous meals, hit the bondi markets and also the surry hills festival. i even tried vegemite...a little wierd- sort of tastes like soy sauce, but has a
peanut butter consistency??? it was my first trip to australia and i LOVED it. loved it. can't wait to go back.
the only bummer was not seeing any koalas...everyone says they're mean anyway?!

spring break- hawaiian style

we just got back from a week in hawaii, where we were celebrating buck's retirement.
it was so fun to spend some quality time with the fam(s), hang out with kali, eat all our favorite island
delicacies and log in some serious beach time.
