The one with the minion moment that made my life

One of the best moments of my entire life occurred and so obviously I need to share it with you right now.

Curtis and I were spoilt with a delicious three course French meal at my work to welcome him to Australia.

But wait, there’s more.

Dessert was happening (um, obviously the most important time of the night). I was excited. Who doesn’t get excited for dessert?! And then, courtesy of Bestie and my amazing work friends, they just casually whipped THIS out:


I almost popped a blood vessel in excitement.

There were tears.

Oh and Curtis’ dessert wasn’t too shabby either 😉


(He calls me his little goat in a very loving and romantic way 🙂 ).

I am still reeling from the epicness.


Some pics from the rest of our night:

An adorable appetizer made by Bestie who came running out of the kitchen to give it to us (she’s the pastry chef):

And a nice afternoon walk before the phenomenal indulgence that was our dinner:


(Curtis was really into the abundance of gum trees in Australia)

And now I am off to meditate on where to place my minions around our house as this is obviously a very important decision. Curtis might possibly be a little bit freaked out.  


Important question about minion placement: all together as a family or spread randomly throughout the house so there is minion epicness wherever you look?

Best thing you ever got in a Kinder Surprise? (that’s where the minions came from)

Fave treat to order when you are out? – I love me a good pasta or risotto, carbs all the way for me 🙂

    I love the minion reference with your dessert- clearly they know you so well 🙂
