A busy weekend

This weekend I:
  • Visited an op shop
  • Had a lovely brunch for a friend's birthday (french toast, mmm!)
  • Went to a delicious BBQ
  • Made playdough (we used a 'no cook' recipe so that Bub could get totally involved. She tired of having sticky hands after about 1 minute and I ended up making it all anyway)
  • Cooked enough dinner for the next 2 nights
  • Went retail shopping
  • Had some drinks at a newish Canberra bar
 Very busy indeed, and much more social than I usually am! Unfortunately I haven't been sleeping well so I am exhausted, work will be a struggle tomorrow...

My thrifted finds were as follows:

 What could these be?

A vintage pleated midi skirt ($4), a tie with a cute penguin print ($3) and a bunny rabbit oven mitt (50c).

I'm linking up with Sophie and Apron Thrift Girl to share my finds :)

My non thrifted buys were:
 Genuine leather outer heels from Target (perfect for work), $35

 Retro bell for my non-existant bike, which I might one day get (or will otherwise gift this) - $2.50 from Sportsgirl

Sparkly brown necklace from Katies, Free! (You get a $10 voucher for joining their club and making a purchase... mine was about to expire, so I had to pick something in store. I didn't like anything that much so I just chose a simple necklace).

I love casual BBQs - good food, company and stories to share. This weekend's was one of those events, and the spread of meats and salads was overwhelming:

Typical Aussie BBQ - an awesome summer feed. Plenty of meat for the boys and delicious salads for the girls.

Dessert- homemade chocolate mudcake, tasted as good as it looks.

For my girlfriend's birthday, we checked out 'Honkytonks', a newish bar in Civic. I loved it - casual vibe, plenty of seating including couches, very reasonably priced drinks (plenty of wines and beers for $6 each) and you can even buy a mini "gourmet" hotdog for $5 if you're feeling peckish (I was):

Funky retro decor, love the flamingo!

What did you get up to this weekend?


  1. I just bought a bike so I'm definitely going to checkout sportgirls and see if they have that bell!

  2. food looks yummy! a productive weekend is always good but always goes by too fast.
