A Little Dinner Date

This week started off with a couple of sleep ins, and an odd lazy day due to this fantastic rainy, cold weather. I don't mind the miserable weather so much in the winter because its almost expected, but for February here in Australia, it isn't. Waking up to mountain (slight exaggeration, maybe a hill) of dirty laundry on a wet day doesn't really compel me to make much out of my day. But waking up and actually getting to have breakfast with Luke does. Luke has wednesday mornings free before he has to go to work in the afternoon, and this Wednesday morning he made French toast with strawberries and bananas for breakfast! After he left I watched 'The Help' - ohmygoshsupersad- and had an earl grey sorta afternoon with a pot of French Earl Grey & one of my delicious Earl Grey Cupcakes that I had made Tuesday afternoon. I also started to paint my nails with a watermelon zig zag.

Luke had Thursday off this week, but I however had to work. So Luke got up early and came to my work to have coffee and breakfast before he went to Newcastle for a little man date with his friend. After work I had plans to come home and tidy up and do all these amazing things before we had our dinner date, and I fell asleep waiting for Luke to come home. We went out for dinner & drinks for the first time in ages, which was really lovely. The past couple of weeks have been a little busy and on his days off I've been working & off doing things so we really haven't had much time to go on little dinner dates. So over the two days this week, I almost got to have full day with Luke. When we got home we had some drinks and watched Blades Of Glory. That movie almost gets better every time! 


  1. Sounds like you had a lovely week! :) I really miss dinner dates, I should save up some money and treat Ben sometime. :P

  2. Strawberries and bananas on French toast? What is this madness?! I must try it out, I always just have French toast plain!

    1. Haha! At the cafe I work at they serve it with banana, isn't that normal!? When Luke made it this week we only had wholemeal grain bread. It would have been better with white bread though. Try cooked banana, its so so good!

  3. That french toast looks so good! And do I spy some pad thai? Yuuum!

  4. holy moly that french toast looks tasty!


  5. Girl. What in THE world is on your dinner plate?

    The Help? Supersad? It's brilliant. and yes, sad. Don't worry, I'll never make you a chocolate pie.

  6. dinner dates are just the best :)

  7. AHHHH~ love those cute watermelon nails!!!!

  8. Ooh I just love how you did your nails!

  9. Okay. I seriously got a drooly mouth when I looked at the picture of french toast with strawberries and bananas. I've never seen something so YUMMY looking! I've also never tried that or would have thought to try it! What the heck is wrong with me?! Mmmm I bet it was delish.
    Speaking of delish, I wanna learn how to do all that cool nail art like your watermelon nails!
    I keep hearing nothing but great things about The Help. I really need to see it!!!
    I'm glad you had a great day with your beau. :)
