Nostalgia

Dave and I were talking in the car tonight about how being financially stable is boring. Yes that sounds ridiculous.. but it made me think back about being 18 when I moved into my first apartment with Tara. We picked up our lounge suite off the side of the road, we hung posters of bands on the walls in the living room, we used a bar fridge for the entire time we lived together, we'd smoke rollies on the front porch with our mates listening to Bjork and Tool and we lived on a diet of soup, 2 minute noodles and rice. We didnt have a care in the world. (Yes that is a picture of Tara ironing her hair.. with an iron). Seems like a lifetime ago..

Saturday

Beers and burrito's with my one and only Feebs at Zambrero on Rundle Street on Saturday afternoon. Followed by beers at the Austral. Then beers at the Archer. Then work. Probably not my best idea ever?!! But an awesome day, which ended up being an awesome night, then awesome morning!

Awesome

Ah what a wonderful weekend! So much fun with two of my gorgeous girls. So great to finally get an insight into their new awesome lives in Melbs. Both living in Prahran only walking distance from each other, we did brekky, lunches and dinners at some super cool places on Chapel and Victoria St in Richmond, did some unreal op shopping and scored some massive bargains, got extremely messy on Saturday night and even snuck in some afternoon dvd's and nanna naps. Amazing weekend.

I'm off to Melbourne tomorrow to see my lovelies! A day of shopping and exploring with Chan and dinner and drinks tomorrow night. My little bro-in-law-to-be is also spending his last weekend in Australia over there before he heads off to South America for 8 months so I will prob catch up with him too.

Have a great weekend. I'm off to watch some Grand Designs then an early night before my early flight tomorrow! xo

Thought

Someone who was in my life a long, long, time ago once quoted to me..

"Oh what a tangled web we weave,
when first we practice to deceive"

I've never forgotten that..

Gosh..

I havent blogged in a while! Things have been a bit all over the shop to be honest.. I quit my job, somehow landed a reasonably good one at 4 days a week, I have been working crazy, busy, fun nights at Sparrow with my buddies Chris and Shauna and a whole bunch of other awesome people, I've set up a studio at home, I've spent some much needed time with my boy, I've painted my lovely blackboard wall and I've booked a trip to Melbourne next weekend to catch up with two of my bestest (and hottest) friends Channing and Jules. Oh and as of today it is..... 9 MONTHS TIL OUR WEDDING!? What the?! Um.. I guess I should probably start thinking about stuff. Anyways, after today I'm hoping my chaos is replaced with a bit of peace and I can spend some more time documenting it on here. Heading out with Jess and Miss Everly this afternoon for coffee at Hawker St Cafe. Have a lovely weekend and here is a pic of my wall!
