This coming Wednesday I head down to Melbourne for our two biggest work events of the year. This means the past week has been filled with long hours, stressful deadlines and the typical sore throat that always seems to creep up right before a big event. Despite the craziness, we did manage to squeeze in a bit of fun this week and got to check out Wild Beasts at the Oxford Art Factory (and pay a visit to my favourite Mexican joint in the city - bring on the burritos!)

Saturday - sleeping in, slow cooker on, a glimpse of sun, reading by the fire, sipping chai tea and completing my knitted pot holder. I love the weekend.

Tonight I did two things I normally don't do: wear heels and go out on a school night. crazy huh? I can say that wearing heels while running for a cab in the rain isn't at the top of my 'fun' list but considering I was carrying a bag full of Inside Out and Freedom goodies, it wasn't so bad. Me and a few girls from work headed over to Moore Park to see Jason Grant give a talk about creating new looks for your home and some of the upcoming trends we'll be seeing this season. I ate canapes and sipped sauv blanc - how very professional of me don't you think? It was fun (despite the rainy weather) and while my co-workers shopped around I finally got a chance to say hello to the always hilarious and very lovely, pottymouthmama (thanks lexi, had a great night!) Now it's time to kick off the heels and head to bed...

I'm actually embarrassed to admit how much TV I watched on Friday night. It was cold and rainy so we picked up a bottle of wine, popped in a DVD and let the stress of the week fade away. Saturday we ran errands and celebrated with friends at a birthday BBQ - too much food and wine - all signs of a good night. Sunday I met up with Amanda and we picked up some crafty bits for current and future projects. I've got bags full of yarn for Christmas presents - time to get knitting!

Last night I had high hopes of getting up early and going for a walk on the beach. I wanted to get some exercise, see the sunrise, feel the breeze in my hair, perhaps get a coffee - all before work. I decided this would be my new routine, my own 'thing' just for me each morning. Who needs a gym when you've got mother nature at your doorstep right? Wrong. The alarm went off and the cold air lingering in the room slapped me in the face the second I tried to get up and you guessed it - back to bed I went. Intention was there but not much else. It's kind of been like that lately. Busy days at work as I'm trying to complete one role and move into the next. At home, I have a list the length of my arm of all the things that I want to do. Yet why is it that when I finally get the energy, HBO or some related TV channel just happens to premiere a new series? I'm going to blame True Blood, Weeds, Sons of Anarchy and Entourage for my lack of energy - I can't resist. Well, I did do one productive thing today - I made a tasty (although difficult to photograph) veggie frittata for dinner...that's something to be proud of right?

Another random collection of images from our weekend. Despite the sunshine, something about this cold weather has put me into full hibernation mode where I all I want to do is turn the heat on, curl under the blanket and watch a movie. I managed to make it into the city for a birthday lunch and yes finally got to wear my dress which I am happy to say is complete and not too shabby if I do say so myself. One cocktail turned into two and so on...it was a blast but made for a very unproductive Sunday which I was perfectly okay with. J and I nursed our hangovers with chicken burgers and hours of lounging and movie watching. Sometimes lazy isn't a bad thing...
