Greetings and welcome to the weekend and another sojourn down the Rabbit Hole. Freckles, Hashbrown and I are so pleased to see you. While Freckles and Hashbrown are chilling out, I’m trying my hardest not to melt here in Brisvegas. I’ve been fortunate enough to spend the last few days with some of my favourite bloggy buddies, the lovely Nicole and my trusty co-pilot Karin and a very merry time we’ve had too.
Anyhoo, this is a kind of tri-trip and I’m in Brisvegas for 3 reasons; to see my friends in my computer in real life, to hotfoot it to a Jamberry event and last but not least enjoy some belated anniversary celebrations. That’s thrice as nice! Anyways, enough about me, let’s hop on down and see what’s happening down the Rabbit Hole, shall we?

As much as I’m grateful for two, I’d really love to have a 3 day weekend, and now the science has shown that every weekend should be a 3 day weekend – and here’s why!
