Any way, I have had two days to recover now and boy did I need it! I had the best weekend I have had in a long time. Unfortunatly my camera is broken so I have had to steal some photos from facebook and show you some blurry iphone pics. Oh well, some is better than none!
Friday night I had to work late so I missed the mighty Saucermen and only caught the last song of the Rumjacks :( But I did get to see the talented Mr. Pat Capocci play. Yay! I made a bee line straight to the bar, grabbed myself a few drinks (I had alot of catching up to do!) and headed to the danced floor. My ladies and I danced the night away, boppin' and strollin'. So much fun! I have never learnt how to rock and roll/jive, but a friend grabbed me for a dance. I think I did pretty well but it has really motivated Sam and I to have some lessons so we can join the rest of out buddies out on the dance floor together.
I wore my new blue floral dress, black shoes, vintage beaded cardigan and a white whicker bag.
Me, Tracy, Tiffany & Evelyn

Saturday was chilled out with a car show, but I spent most of the day inside with Jen (Paperdoll Pinups) doing hair!
One of my best friends, Tiffany
Jen & Leah
My love "Tiki" spent the whole day stripping cars, making them all pretty like!
We stayed til the end of the day, quickly went home for a shower and change of clothes, then we headed back down to the Highway for a schnitty and salt & pepper squid...mmmm! Then the crazy really started!
The first band for the night were Saturday's Army. To be honest, I didn't really like them. Their singer, who would have been about all of 19, was a bit of a know-it-all, and seemed to think that he was more "rockabilly" and better than everyone else. That really puts me off as everyone there was there for a good time, not to prove that they are cooler or better than others...hmmmph! Any way, The Satellites rocked it as usual. We took over the dance floor for some more boppin' and strollin', and then some SKANKING!!! The Strange Tennants were sooo good. Everyone loves them some skanking to a good ska band. Even the boys got up for a dance. I didn't watch the whole set as I was busy making new friends :)
Greg & Donna- the sweetest couple ever!

The band finished at about 2am, then a few of us grabbed a cab into the city to Enigma bar for jaegrbombs and 80's metal! Woohoo! I think those photos for another time hehehe. We got home at 5.30am (yiros in hand of course) and surpisingly Sam and I didn't have hang overs. Yahoo!
We headed off again at 11.30 for the boot sale. I shared a stall with Lady Tracy, Miss Tiffany and Lady Louise. We made a pretty penny to make up for all the cash we spent the night before. I got a few spoils from Tracy and Louise, but this post in lengthy enough, I will show you another time.
Aww...I love this lady!
At the end of the day, we were all totally pooped. The gang got together for one last time for dinner, then we went out separate ways.
If you are from Adelaide, please come next year, I promise you won't be dissapointed!
