Somehow Melbourne forgot that it’s Autumn and she decided to gift us with the most beautiful Spring(esque) weather of late, so we spent the long weekend soaking it all up – way to go Melbourne! ♥
We had a nice slow start to our Monday – a much needed sleep in, some strong coffee (thanks to our nespresso we don’t even need to leave the house/put on clothes! winning!) followed by Mikey cooking us a breakfast feast while I slogged away at T25 (have you heard of it? it’s a slightly less insane version of Insanity)…so maybe lets call it a semi slow start to the day! 😉
After breakfast we got dressed into some summery clothes to take pup for a stroll around the neighbourhood. I was finally able to wear my new (to me) vintage dress I bought from Kell of The Storybook Rabbit and it’s an absolute dream! fitted waist, gorgeous open back and pockets!!! yes!! not to mention the perfect shade of pink with white geometric shapes all over it ♥
it’s love in a dress i tell you! ♥

I also had my hair freshly done on Sunday afternoon, so i was feeling very chipper indeed! If only regrowth never happened…i’m pretty sure that would make me the happiest lady ever!
The sky was just the most perfect shade of blue and we slowly wandered around our neighbourhood taking in all of the beautiful buildings. The White House is one of my favourites, and i loved this image I managed to snap of it peeking out through the trees! so very beautiful!
Puppy was determined to not look at us whenever we went to take a snap of her – it’s kind of her thing really. she’ll be pulling the cutest face and as soon as the camera comes out, she casually turns her head away! Mike managed to snap this pic of her looking like a true regal beagle – or as he called it “Puppy of Thrones”
The rest of the day was spent cooking a pot of veg and lentil soup, baking a creamy chicken pie, and ‘helping’ Mike bake a delicious chocolate swirl cheesecake (by help I mean eating the leftover digestive biscuits, licking leftover cheesecake mixture off the spoons, putting leftover melted chocolate onto digestive biscuits and continuing to eat…lots of ‘helping’…)
There was also a lot of cleaning and washing done, before being forced to hide inside after a wasp decided my kitchen was the place to be! eep! apparently waving your arms madly in the air only infuriates them more, so that wasp was pretty pissed at me! whoops!
we’ve got another week of warm weather predicted, so i’ll be soaking up as much of it as possible – if the weather people have managed to get it right that is! (it is Melbourne, after all!)
3 days weekends are definitely where it’s at though! we’ve been spoiled with quite a few of them of late and i’m really loving them – maybe i need to make this a permanent thing?! 😉
have a happy week friends
