mirror mirror on the wall...

the 23rd of this month marks my 9th wedding anniversary...i know what you are thinking...why so close to Christmas??!! it is sort of a sentimental reason behind that date. my mother and father were married on the 23rd of December and dad always says that had my mother not died at the young age of 39, they would still be going strong. so i guess that date holds a special meaning for me and i hope that my mister moo and i can have a long and happy life together...
i guess the joy of December means that i get 2 gifts, one on my anniversary and one for Christmas morning. seems as though my anniversary present has come a little early...
just by chance the girls and i popped into a little second hand store and spotted this beauty.
i wasn't sure if i should buy it as we had promised each other no extra spending. after finding out that it was only $30 i was tempted to buy it but thought i better not. i thought about it all day and rang mister to have a look on his way home and if he thought it was a bargain to buy it for me. by the time he got to the store they had popped a price sticker of $35 so he was confused and rang me to check if it was the right mirror...needless to say he talked the fella back down to the original price and brought this beauty home for me as my anniversary present.
it is perfect in every way, no chips or cracks.
i love it and just know that it will be a perfect addition to our new room. i have a feeling i am getting something else as well...
the girls were home today as holidays are in full swing and they actually played quite well together. Claudia was pretending to be doctor with the glasses and stethoscope and little comedian lili popped this lightening bolt on her head and said look mum harry potter. Claudia didn't get the joke but we were all in fits of laughter.
she is so cute!
Friday is just around the corner and marks the beginning of micks holidays...yippee!

That is a gorgeous mirror and $30 is a fantastic price. My anniversary is the 16th and I ask myself all the time why we did that? We were in college and that was during our winter break, is why. Claudia is adorable!!
