Maxine's Challenge Week 8
Maxine’s Challenge Week 8 saw me partake in a few events. On Friday I got the new Apple iPhone 6 without having to wait in line. It was ordered online, it was delivered, up & running by about 11 am. I was excited since this is the first time I have had a brand new phone when it was released. I had the day off because I was going to a wedding in the afternoon. The wedding was in Kallista. It was a nice night & not too late considering we stayed until the very end.

Saturday night we stayed at Crown Towers & had dinner at Rockpool Bar & Grill. We met up with a few people we knew that were in the Casino complex & lost a bit of money on the tables. Dinner was fantastic because it reminded me of Ruth’s Chris in Hawaii, where you get your (expensive) steak on a plate with nothing else. I had a 36-month-old 250g steak fillet & chose a side of roasted pumpkin & sweet potato, I enjoyed absolutely every bite! Piggy me, I was a little greedy & I ate almost all of the sides by myself. I also took my week 8 picture with the paper that was outside our hotel door in the morning. I now know that I didn’t need to post a picture with the paper. But I just think it shows a bit more accountability.

I spent most of Sunday taking slow-motion videos of Harley the Pomeranian. You should most certainly take slo-mo videos of animals, it is ridiculously entertaining. I spent the rest of the day waiting around at home for my niece to enter the world. We went to the hospital to wait for her at about 8 pm & she made her appearance at 10:08 pm. She is the cutest little thing that I ever did see.
