Hello, Mates!

I'm back from my whirlwind trip to Aussie land!  {I landed in LA on Mother's Day morning!}

If I could only say one word about Australia, it would be:  fantastic!

Honestly, it was hard to leave!  We (my oldest daughter and I) had the most wonderful trip.  ;)

Before I left, Kristin (Sizzix CEO) asked me to bring back something called "Tim Tams."  Of course, I was not going to admit I didn't know what a Tim Tam was, but I soon found out!

Check out this unedited (and shot by my teenager!) video to find out all about Tim Tams!

I just have to say, they are incredible!!  :)  

Another thing we learned about very quickly was electricity.  In Australia, electricity is very expensive, so the outlets (they call them power points in Australia...Microsoft stole the name!)  ;)  have on off switches!  Here's a picture:

So, the one on the right is on, the one on the left is off.  We did remember to bring the electricity converters, but still managed to blow out the hair straightener!  ;)  THAT was pretty funny!

So, as I deal with my jet lag, I'll go through more pictures and share more with you this week.  

I'll be honest, I can't wait to go back!
