Five Favourites From The Week That Was!

Can you even believe we’re at the end of November already? I seriously can’t. Summer is about to officially begin, which means Christmas is nearly here and we’ll be saying goodbye to 2015 very soon. To me, December is a time for enjoying the Summer weather, eating copious amounts of stonefruit, spending time with family and friends, and embracing all things Christmas! I can’t wait!

I’m a little late getting this week’s Happy List up because we hosted Tyrone’s work Christmas Party last night and we were all go go go getting things organised. It was the first proper dinner we’ve hosted in our house and we had a blast. Here are five other moments from the week that made me happy…

1// Our wedding photos! We received the digital files of our photos this week and it’s been so wonderful to relive every moment and every feeling from that day. The amazing Charmaine Otto Photography captured everything so beautifully, and I especially loved seeing scenes from the day that I didn’t manage to actually witness. Can’t wait to share them with you all as soon as I organise the 600+ photos we have into blog posts!

2// Hosting our first barbecue. Barbecues in the Summertime is the Australian way, and it was so much fun hosting our first barbecue at our home on Friday night. And dessert buffets are the Carly way so you know I tried one of everything!

3// Recreating honeymoon memories. This week we cooked ravioli and prepared it in the same way we had it in Italy during our honeymoon. It’s amazing how many memories are attached to amazing meals we’ve eaten, don’t you think?

4// An early Christmas present! Ty texted me on Monday at work and said a present had arrived for me in the post. When I got home he surprised me with an amazing Bluetooth kit that I so badly need for my car. I’ve been prank calling him all week as a way of saying thanks because it’s just too easy – all I have to say is “Call Tyrone” and it does. Priceless!

5// Reviving my laptop! Lately I’ve been getting increasingly frustrated by my laptop’s slowness and Ty suggested it might have had something to do with the thousands of high res photos I’ve overloaded it with over the past few years. I was like “nah, that’s not it.” but then I had a nightmare where I was Carrie in this exact SATC scene. So with Ty’s help, all my photos are now backed up on two external drives and my laptop has a new lease on life. Hallelujah!

How has your week been? I have plans to have dinner and rewatch OC episodes with my sisters tonight which honestly sounds like my idea of heaven after a busy week! I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend and thanks so much for reading! XO

Five Favourites From The Week That Was!

Hello there lovelies! It’s that time of the week again – Friday! Everyone’s favourite day of the work week, am I right? I’m totally right. I’m actually a little sad to see this week draw to a close if I’m honest. It’s been such a great one, for so many reasons, full of lots of happy things and some major productiveness on the life admin front. Today I woke up and am feeling a little under the weather – the dreaded late Winter cold no doubt – so I’m looking forward to a relaxing and restful weekend ahead. Ty and I have some very fun plans too with a trip to Woodford
to celebrate his sister’s birthday! I love visiting Woodford and can’t
wait to see everyone – it’s party time, as long as this cold doesn’t hold me back!

Here’s a little list of my favourite happy things this week…

1// My MAC makeup lesson. I had a makeup lesson with a MAC makeup artist on Monday in preparation for our upcoming wedding in October. It was so much fun, super informative, and now I feel really confident I can do my own bridal makeup on the day! I wrote a post about it here if you’re interested 🙂

2// Taking Pop out to dinner. My sister Lauren and I took our Pop out for dinner last Saturday night to his favourite Thai restaurant on the Gold Coast. It was so much fun and really meant a lot to us to be able to take him out for a special dinner. He really is the cutest!

3// Spending Sunday morning at the beach. It’s pretty infrequent I get to the beach these days, so Lauren and I  took advantage of being on the Gold Coast and spent Sunday morning relaxing on the sand. We read our books, sipped coffee, and watched the grey, dark clouds roll in over the coast line. It was a blissful start to the day!

4// High waisted skinny jeans. You guys, I bought a pair of high waisted skinny jeans this week and its safe to say I’m in love! They are so comfortable and make me feel effortlessly polished, without doing anything extra. Prepare to see lots of these babies in the coming months!

5// Late winter rain. Nothing puts me in cheery mood more instantly than the rain. I think it stems from the fact that I grew up in the drought-plagued countryside in Australia – it was such a novelty whenever we would finally get rain and was always a cause for celebration in my mind. That happy feeling has followed me right into adulthood. So with rain on and off every day since Wednesday, it’s been a very cheerful week 🙂

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Has anyone else ever done a dance in the rain, or is that just me? And let me know what made you happy this week in the comments below! XO
