Crazy little thing called LUNCH!

Such a pretty day!
I'm thinking pizza in the park when the boyfriend gets home from work. Hopefully it's still light out!



I've been cleaning all afternoon! I feel like Joan Crawford when I clean. I get all crazy and o.c.d.
Who needs pilates when you can just scrub the bathroom walls!

Blush, eyeshadow and lipgloss - OH MY!

MUST go buy lots of makeup for a dollar at E.L.F. I did...I sure did.
(thank you for telling me bff!)

Sweets

Mmmmmmm.




Take me back to Avignon!

Puffy Pink Peonies? English Roses?




French Toast Hearts


It's nearly 2am and I'm already thinking about breakfast.

Gardenias

Our first plant. I saw it from a mile away and it smells sooo pretty.

I have no idea how to take care of it so I'll be googling.

If you have any tips please leave a comment!!

G-r-r-r-eat!

Today has been a great day...no... an OKgreat day! eee! 
The last thing I won was a box of MIKE & IKE's last year. Soo cool to win the giveaway! Thank you OKgreaters! I can't wait to have one of those prints in my hands and on my wall.

Congratulations to the other 3 that also won. :)

Here is a little bit of Bristol on Sunday...








I actually had to take my cardigan off...IN ENGLAND!? It was such a warm and pretty day.

Oh yes and these homemade yummies...




Good weekend.
The boyfriend had another day off so we stopped by zeh mall and picked up some new yoga pants that arent really yoga pants (just thicker leggings) for moi and a comfy grey shirt from H&M.

We stopped by Starbucks and I ordered an iced green tea and they panicked a little- whispering behind the counter? Then I ended up with a cup of cold water with a tea bag floating in it. Do they usually brew it beforehand in the US? I think it kiiinda tasted the same but I was confused! I guess cold tea wouldn't be very popular out here.


I love Let's Yoga! for DS when my classes are ALWAYS fully booked.


Hope everyone had a g-r-r-r-eat weekend.
(oh! Frosted Flakes are called Frosties over here, weird? yes, they do taste the same.)

Back from Warbrook!

We had a nice stay. I love the rooms there because they're all shades of purple. Oh they also have endless coffees and teas of all kinds!
I LOVE the gardens! I will for sure visit Warbrook just to see the gardens again. It looks 1,000 times better than in these pictures. It was about a 30 minute walk with pretty all around!







So pretty right?
THEN - on the way home we went to visit one of Jane Austen's houses!



I saw a sign that said no pictures inside but then overheard someone saying pictures w/ no flash... so I was kinda bummed out. On the way out there was a little cafe across the street called Cassandra's Cup - named after her sister.



Cute piggie planter!
We walked back to the carpark and I couldn't pass up the swings... but who can when no one is around?!









So we're back in Southampton now. Our next little trip will be later in the month when Ryan's sister flys in from France. She had her babyinthetummy scan today! I just saw the pictures! She's at 3 months now and I can't wait to find out what it is going to be! (that means I'm going to be an Aunt...eventually!) Ryan has been looking at the pictures trying to figure out what it is. He says he thinks it a girl - awww.

Engagement Update! Friends of ours gave us a Wedding Planning book the other day! I love it but it just shows me how much there is to do. I THINK we know where we want to get married. I want something natural, barn-like and pretty much just a blank canvas. We saw it last time we went to visit his parents.

Warbrook trip!

I've been engaged for 9 days!

Ryan surprised me AGAIN last night telling me we're going to be staying at the Warbrook House tonight for our 15 month (officially dating) anniversary. We've stayed there once before for our friends wedding.

There I am last May being cheesy in front of it. I'm excited to see my cow friends again. They are right on the other side of the house.

I think check in was at 2pm so I better get goin!!
