A Weekend In Review // Instagram & Instax Photos

Gavin and I love our weekends! We usually pack so much into our days off but this weekend was fairly quite for us.

On Friday night we grabbed some takeaway for dinner and had a picnic by the beach before heading home to watch our favourite shows.

On Saturday we did a little shopping in the morning before heading down to Sydney to watch the Newcastle Jets game. We made  a stop at Ikea on the way - as you do. Who doesnt love Ikea?

Disaster stuck at around 1am on Sunday after we just arrived home from Sydney - food poisoning! I guess it serves me right for ordering a cheeseburger from McDonalds at 10pm  but gosh darn I was starving after the soccer! It was definitely the sickest i have ever felt. Positive note: I don't think i will ever want McDonalds again!

Exhaustion from being sick all night prevented me from getting out of bed at all on Sunday, luckily i have a super sweet husband who took great care of me.

Here are a few photos from the weekend:

1. This is our fav spot for a picnic in Newcastle - King Edward Park

2. Cinnamon scroll and Pepsi at Ikea for only $2.25 = bargain!

3. This photo isnt actually from the weekend but rather Thursday night. I just loved the glass jar water glasses at the Mexican restaurant we went to for dinner.

4. Food poisoning meant my Sunday kinda sucked. Sunday night was spent sitting on the lounge with Gavin watching an aleague match and drinking lots of water.

And here is a Instax photo from Friday night - this is my fav Instax photo of us!

  4. The park looks lovely, there's nothing like that here in boring old Coventry! Hope your feeling better from the food poisoning I've had it before it was the worst experience ever x

    1. Were lucky here in Newcastle (Australia), lots of beautiful parks and coastline! Although my husband and I love the UK - we spent our honeymoon driving around the UK for 5 weeks. Best time of our lives!

  5. Oh no you poor thing!! I hope you are feeling so much better!!

  6. Your pictures are really pretty! I am sorry to hear you got food poisoning, any stomach related disease is the worst:/ By the way, I really like the simplicity of your blog's design! Definitely gonna keep on reading!
