☆☆☆SOOC Sunday Celebrations☆☆☆

Port Hedland Chamber of Commerse Inc. Business of the Year Awards 2009
(shot by Tegan using She-Devil's Canon Ixus80 Point and Shoot)

Saturday night was a Black Tie event here in Hedland
((It does NOT happen often and when an event like this happens, it is VERY cool to see how Pilbara people scrub up~Pindan (red dirt) inevitably kisses everyone and everything here, so staying dust free is a quest all on its own here.

Saturday came around and I fought hard to lift the veil of apathy that has descended over our home. Long working hours, a string of maladies that have drained everyone, hormonal hybrid He and She-Devils testing the boundaries and painful parents putting into practice attitude adjustment techniques are just a few of the strains that seem to have dampened a few spirits here in the Byrne household lately!

Juzz complained....he didn't have anything to wear to a 'Black Tie' event.
(He didn't even wear a tie to our wedding for goodness sake!)
I didn't have a suitable dress...and Hedland is NOT a shoppers paradise!
He was tired...we've all had a flu that has involved various antibiotics!
'Not really keen on going tonight BUT we've (the company) paid a fortune for four we should go for a little while!' he teeters between going and not going!

We head out to the shops...strike it lucky in a mere two hours (NOT HEARD OF FOR US)!
OK, so it's not OFFICIALLY 'Black Tie' but dang he scrubbed up alright
....I especially like the purple tie~Meh, we do thangs a little different up here~
☆Black Tie, Smack Tie...Purple was far cooler☆
(FujiFilm FinePix Waterproof Point and Shoot)
The Walkabout was a sea of red and black, with an oriental theme dominating the evening!
A friend,Lorraine, did a magnificent job dressing the hotel up for the event
I played it cool with the cameras....there was a dominating theme. FLAT Battery, FLAT Battery oh and a FLAT Battery! I clicked a shot or two camera's a sign I WILL need a camera tonight. Texted She-Devil, Pahleeeeeze bring Mummay your camera just incase :0)
{{Luckily Tegan has her licence and He-Devil could continue babysitting Wee She-Devil}}

Sunday Celebrations
{Straight Out Of Camera}
Intuition paid off.....not only did we take out the award for Best Business with 20 plus employees BUT we also took out the biggy
The Port Hedland Camber of Commerce Inc. Best Business of the Year Award for 2009

Justin has done an absolutely amazing job, as have his crew.
For me, it was so nice to see him acknowledged for all of his hard work.
He has brought Tim Davies Landscaping so far and has made a big impact on our community.
There is nothing nicer than the striking contrast of green against the bright red of the Pilbara Pindan and my man helped make it happen.
♡♡He colours my world...and the world of those around me♡♡

Thanks for Dropping By

Now Pop over to Melody's @ SlurpingLife and check out everyone else's SOOC Shots this weekend.
