Busy Bees

Luke & I had quite the eventful day together. 
We were little busy bees crossing things off our to-do-lists.
I had an 8.30 am appointment this morning, so our day started a little earlier than I would have liked. I defied my alarm for as long as I could, and gave myself little time to get ready. After the appointment, we went to the cafe where I work to have breakfast & coffee. Trying new things is something I'm pushing myself to do, so today I tried blueberry pancakes. And aren't I a fool for putting it off for so long, as I always go for banana. And I also tried some of Luke's French toast. My boss made our coffees and as her & her gf were making them, I could see them huddled over & giggling. Rather than the normal cute little heart in the froth, they'd branched out and tried their hand at doodles! So that was a pretty funny start to the day. 

After breakfast we went to the shops to make a quick purchase - my new Mac desktop! I'm so fracking excited! My desk won't get here for a few days, so I won't set it all up until it arrives. Which gives me time to find the perfect decorative desk chair. Working on my new Mac will be so much easier having a bigger screen, 21.5" to be exact! Luke had a voucher for a book store, so while he was looking around I read some of the new children's books which generated an abundance of much needed creative motivation. I also picked up a new floral print dress from Cotton On, and a 'L' scrabble necklace from Diva for $2! I am a bit late to the scrabble jewellery phase, but I got on the wagon cheaply!

Aside from buying a new Mac, buying new mascara was on the top of my to-do-list for Thursday. As we were driving home I realised I had forgot to, so we pulled into the shopping centre which is closer to our house to get it and dinner things. Just to make my day more awesome, Rimmel had a buy 1 get 1 free purchase offer. And while we were close to the post office we finally got out passport photos taken. We've been meaning to get our passports for ages for our Fiji trip in March. And to finish our lovely little day together, Luke is going to make burritos and we're going to watch the tennis!


  1. super cute dress!!

  2. Haha, best coffee picture :D Cheek! I have really been enjoying watching the tennis too. Who are your favourites? I have never had buyers remorse, not even a skeric after buying my two Macs (laptop years ago, then iMac last year). It feels wrong to love a computer, but my Macbook is like a (really useful, streamlined looking) pet to me.
    Sounds like a good day to me!

    1. As I was leaving JB, the security officer checked my docket and made a comment on how expensive they are. I disagree entirely! I have used my Macbook almost everyday for like 5 years. I'm so excited about it, I was sad to part with my money but I know its worth it!

      Oh the tennis! I'm always team rodgey dodge! I wish they would show more of Jo Wilfred Tsonga's matches, I caught a little bit this morning. And I always have a soft spot for Lleyton. What about you?

  3. Loving the coffee picture ;) This made me chuckle to myself!

    That dress is super cute too!

    Sounds like a really fun day.

  5. What a fun day! I love blueberry pancakes - yummm. The coffee photo made me laugh. Have fun with your new Mac :]

  6. Your dress is adorable, I adore it! And that coffee looks delicious <3

  7. Watch the tennis? Was that a typo? Did you mean to say tennis match.. I thought it was cute.. Sounds like a perfect day to me! Oh how I miss those days of running around with my husband and doing errands! He's so busy with school that I do everything alone now...Boo

    1. We watched the tennis! The 'Australian Open' is on over here at the moment, and its on tv. Every year I get hooked! I don't get to have many days like this with my husband because he works so much, and usually his days off I work. So this week it was in our favour and we got to have an all day date!


Thanks for stopping by!
