hot summer days and nights...

How has everyone's weekend been? I have enjoyed every second of mine, because V is back, after six days out of town for work - I may or may not have squealed and ran and jumped at him when he walked in the door on Saturday

Last night, we headed out to a local Mexican restaurant for a little celebration dinner...

'Scuse the pissed-off look on my face, I was having trouble coping with the extreme heat...

Leona Edmiston dress
Tony Bianco heels
Cotton On sunglasses
Jag satchel

We shared a litre jug of Pimms...

And lots of yummy Mexican food!

After dinner, we decided we needed icecream, stat! We moseyed on over to Cold Rock. This is V's peanut butter icecream with snickers bar - sounds weird, but 'twas yummy!

And my mint-choc icecream with mint slice biscuits - kind of boring, but I think its a classic combo. Delish

Tomorrow, V heads off to Griffith for twelve days! He is going to be away for both his birthday, and Valentines Day. Sad. So in the spirit of making each moment count, we headed out for breakfast...

Yummy, yummy coffee - V was without coffee for the entire time he was in Coonamble, so he had several this morning

The big brekky - appropriate choice for someone who has been working 11-hour days in 42degree heat (and has dropped down to 88kg!)

My eggs benedict - the hollondaise at lee&me is the bomb!

Happy Weekend all!


  1. Gosh you look pretty in yellow! Glad that V is back :) I love love Pimms, going to the kitchen now to make myself one. Although I don't think I'll have a jug lol. Sad that V won't be around for V day. If I remember I'll pop back next monday and wish you a happy valentines day :)

  2. oooh I love Cold Rock ice cream, all the possible combos that one can create! Pitty there is not more of them around.

    Love Ms Stef

  3. Ohh :( :( :( you poor chicken that sucks that he is away for his b'day AND Valentine's day : :( :(

    It looks like you had a beautiful weekend to make up for it though :) :) :)

    I've worked night duty Sat night and again tonight (Sunday) I just woke up and I feel giddy and sick. Night duty is not good to me :( :( :(

  4. Beautiful dress, you're lucky yellow suits you as it can make so many like me look a little sick/washed out. The Pimms seems perfect for this heat, send some over please!

  5. Love the colour of the dress, and that food all looks so great!

  6. Did you go to Amigo's? I love that place!

  7. Yumm! The Leona dress looks so fresh in that heat we had.

    I love really good Mexican - few and far between here though.

    From all your raves I might have to take a roadtrip to try Lee & Me... I adore hollandaise.

  8. I needed that dress today, it was soooo hot. Such a happy colour too.

  9. Wow, that dress looks fantastic on you!

    P.S. You have a new follower!

  10. Ohh you poor thing! My boy also travels for work (he is a judges associate - like you previously were I believe?). It is hard while he is away, but if you fill your days to distract yourself you will be amazed what you can get done! And I always appreciate him way more when he gets back :) xxx

  11. work travel isn't all that fun when you miss important dates! Make up for it at a later date :) I love the Leona dress - simply stunning. You look gorgeous.

  12. That dress = amazing!!!!
    I love how you don't just save these beautiful clothes for best - you wear them every day!
    Hope you're doing ok without V xx

  13. Extreme heat. I'm almost jealous. It's below freezing here in New York and we still have over 2 feet of snow on the ground.

  14. That has got to be the most perfect summer dress!
