Loving: The promise of spring in the air. The days are getting longer and there is a definite warmth in the air which is fantastic. I'm by far a winter girl but something about the start of spring is making me happy these days. Once it warms up a bit more it will be so much nicer in my house without the constant chill. 

Reading: Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult. There is something about the way she writes that always sucks me in and I know once I get to a certain part I just have to finish it! I bought this book for my sister and it has finally gotten back to me for my turn to read it. I have loved all of her previous books and read them all so quickly. 

Watching: Reruns of my favourite movies and I have just started the Breaking Bad series. I am not really interested with what is on tv at the moment and I am finding myself with it on less these days, instead spending my time after work either on my computer or seeing friends. 

Thinking about: Going on holidays! Spending all my days surrounded my so many travel options is giving me way to many ideas of places I could travel. At the moment I am only restricted by how much leave I have at work (which isn't much). 

Making me happy: Life has been so busy in the past few months, and I haven't had a chance to visit home for awhile. My sister is coming down this weekend for some much anticipated catching up and I can't wait! Not to mention I have been rostered a 3 day weekend so I can have an extra day off.

Weekend in Photos

I had a fantabulous weekend and I only just realised that it was Tuesday night and I hadn't done a weekend update! Saturday was a busy day spending time with friends and shopping for another friend's birthday present. We had such friend's party on that night and it was a costume party (the best kind of party) and so I went as a box of popcorn and Matt went as a banana. They were hilarious costumes and I had a blast.

At the party there was a photo booth machine so needless to say there was a lot of time spend in the booth and also outside as it previewed the photos taken so we all watched each other, it was hysterical. I would definitely want one at any parties I have in the future!

Sunday morning was an early start as I had booked in for a horse-riding lesson at 9am. It was the first time I've ridden for almost 8 years, so I was and still am slightly sore from all the bouncing around. We spent some time walking, trotting and a little bit of time at the end jumping which is what I used to love doing when I rode previously. I definitely can't wait to do it again, I had forgotten how much I loved it.

Weekend in Instagram

My weekends are starting to fall into a bit of a pattern, errands on Saturday morning, watching soccer on Saturday afternoon and hanging out with friends at night. Sunday is for sleeping in, maybe a walk, lunch with Matt's parents and catching up on missed sleep on Sunday night. Now that I have a bit of a routine, I am going to start working weekends and be all out of whack again! 

In other news, I love the number plate above! It or something similar would look very good on my car indeed.
