A beautiful weekend

The weekend started with work (a pretty horrid day too). But then at night Jason and I went on a date. We haven't done this in a long time so it was lovely.


My outfit for the night. I had to wear a little grey cardi because there was a chill in the air. It's been raining all week (I miss the sunshine). I bought this Bardot dress from work. It was soo cheap because there was 40% off. I thought I would get the mint colour because I always buy white/cream or blush pink (the other colour available).


We ate at the Breakfast Creek Hotel. It's known for it's steaks. You go there to eat steak. It was so filling, but the steak was soo good! 


After dinner we went on a Gondola cruise down Brisbane river for an hour. It was a gift from Jason's work mates (for our wedding, we finally used it). It was hard to take photos because it had soft lighting inside. But the gondola ride was beautiful. It was relaxing and the view was stunning! 


Then today, it was the 10 year anniversary of our senior pastors (10 years with being senior pastors at our church). So we had this huge combined service. It was utterly awesome! 

I bought this hand made soy candle with proceeds going to our SHE rescue home in Cambodia. It smells divine.

All in all a wonderful weekend. I spent the afternoon relaxing with Jason and watching Bathurst 1000. I don't really watch V8 car racing but this is a huge race and Jason came from Bathurst originally. 

I hope you all have a fabulous week (I have a big work week).

That dress is so lovely. It must be warm up there, the weather here is still rubbish. Glad you had a lovely day, a gondola ride definitely sounds romantic.

That dress is amazing! You look incredible.

Mr LG and I have been on that gondola ride before,it was fantastic! I think it's really cool that Brisbane has fun and unique stuff like that.

Did you hear about the new markets opening up on Capalaba Road in the old MYER building? The guy that owns it owns the Queen Victoria Markets, I'm so excited!

Have a lovely week, Gracie.
