Much Love Monday (Real Living Magazine)

Today I love: My Real Living magazines. I'm subscribed to them (but they still go to my parents house) and I love it when they arrive. I've kept every one since I discovered them. It never fails to inspire me. It's helpful too as I gather ideas for our home.

Other things I love....
♥ Candle lit dinner with Laura and Josh with Laura cooking (from the weekend before) and Jason of course

♥ Helium balloons (from a family friend's birthday on the weekend)

♥ Drinking tea with pretty tea cups

♥ Jason with a disgusted look on his face while holding my tea cup with Japanese tea (He hates it)
♥ Anticipation with meeting a blog friend, Julia who is now in Brisbane to study. We will most likely be meeting sometime this week
♥ Having Dotti open a store at Carindale where I work. (We just need a Forever New, Kikki.K and Borders and I will be happy)

Via Dotti

♥ Making lists
♥ Filipino parties (always so much food it's great!)
♥ Jason preparing dinner
♥ Cloudy days when I get to be at home and get inspired

I have a dinner for work tonight. My team leader is moving and I don't usually go to these going away dinners but she's from my area so I thought I should go. It's Thai food which will be nice.

Have a fantastic week!

P.S. Check out more Much Love Monday at Anna's blog.

What pretty pretty Polas!
I really like Japanese tea, namely sencha, sometimes tencha or matcha. What about you? Are there certain type(s) of Japanese tea that you like?
