Life Lately

Wowee!! That was one of the best weekends I've had in a really long time! I feel super loved and refreshed and happy :)

Friday we held a Birthday party for me and Jesse. Seeing as our birthdays are only 6 days apart, we figured it would be easiest to get both our families in one place to have a celebration. We held it at my parents house, and it was one of the most fun days ever. 

I wore Hell Bunny Motley dress, and Kransky wore a bow tie

My Dad and Brother provided the entertainment

My Dad, Sister and I all pitched in to cook. I requested some of my favourite foods, and they were delivered!

I made pulled pork

Grace made ribs. omg

Dad made burgers

gotta have salad

And slaw

These chips. OMG these chips. I sprung them on dad at the last minute. He nailed it. Thrice cooked and amazing. There weren't enough. They lasted all of 30 seconds.

Brioche buns for the Pork and Burgers

Ice cream cake made by Grace. OMG so good!

My MIL made a hazelnut Gateau. This baby came home with me. So yum

I made a lemon tart. I did it differently than usual, and it didn't quite set. It was still tasty though

Saturday was Jesse's actual birthday. We did some shopping in the morning, hung out with Friends in the afternoon, then I took him to one of his favourite places for dinner. A whiskey bar call Varnish. 

I wore Hell Bunny Flocked Tattoo dress

The birthday boy!

Corn Fries with Ale Gravy

Mac & Cheese with Speck and Bone Marrow

It was a really lovely night!

Sunday was a lazy day. Jesse had to work, so I caught up on washing and house work!

Monday we caught up with Jesse family, and then met mine to go and watch The Grand Budapest Hotel, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. 

See, great weekend! It's my birthday on Friday, so hopefully this coming weekend will be a blast too!
