Just a August

From this morning, she has all these vintage teacups, saucers and plates (I had already taken some of the froth before I took the photo)

Had a lovely long, leisurely breakfast/brunch this morning with my dad, brother Alvin and his fiance Melly. It was great fun and we ate at a local deli that a friend of ours owns. It's the most beautiful day today with simply gorgeous weather. It makes me glad I live in Queensland.

Oh and something interesting and random happened. A lady was sitting across from us and kept on looking up and smiling at Melly and I as we were talking about wedding plans. She then went on to say she worked at some wedding magazine guide and asked if we would like copies for our areas (Brisbane for me and Sunshine Coast for Melly). And we got into this whole discussion about all sorts of things. Funny meeting people so randomly can really put a smile on your face.

Watching... The Ugly Truth (tonight!)

Thinking... About where to get my bridesmaid dresses made

Wishing... I was a lot more organised

Going... To the movies tonight and watching the Queensland Roar soccer team play tomorrow night

Wanting... To join a gym to motivate myself to exercise

Hoping... To go on a picnic next week on the Royal Brisbane show holiday (whee public holiday)

Reading... The new Martha Stewart Weddings mag and the new Bride to be mag...and about to start The Picture of Dorian Gray

Looking... at beautiful blue sky which makes me feel happy

And I got an award from the beautiful Nicole of My Teacups in Peony.

So I award this too...Julia, Laura, Megan and Melissa, Kellie, Paula. I have a ton of people I love really =)

I have another packed weekend with movies tonight with Jason, Laura and Josh. Tomorrow I was hoping to check out Lily-G, the gorgeous home wares store because they are having a car park sale and maybe start putting our gift registry list together and at night we are watching the Queensland Roar soccer team play. And Sunday after church I want to go and spy the Dawn Treader ship they had built for the next Narnia movie The Voyage of the Dawn Treader! I know I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to fantasy movies and books.

I love meeting random people... I think it's so neat how even a chance encounter with someone we don't know can leave a mark on our life. And you have to tell us all how the Ugly Truth is. I so want to see that!!

sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned! enjoy the ugly truth (i really liked it :)) also..i dont know your budget or what-not for your bridesmaids dresses but one of my best friends is getting married in november and our dresses are from two birds.. hmm let me find the link..but they are GORGEOUS and so unique!
they are one size fits all..sounds wierd but they're kind of like a wrap dress and each bridesmaid can fix the back and sleeves to however they want. alright enough from me but let me know if you like them! have a great weekeend dear!
