Things I Love Thursday 10/1/2013

Happy Thursday to you all! Are you ready to get right into Things I Love Thursday?  Well I am, so let’s begin:

This week I love:

– Realising that in a few weeks, Ross and I will have been a couple for nine years.  That means that I will have been Ross’s girlfriend for a third of my lifetime.  That’s mental!

– Gin and tonic.  It’s quickly become my favourite summer drink.  It’s so refreshing, especially with a little wedge of lime dunked in it.

– Trying new recipes.  This week I made a spinach and ricotta pie that was delicious and a creamy pasta sauce with garden vegetables (which wasn’t fantastic, if I’m honest.  I could definitely improve it the next time I cook that dish).

– Making plans for more adventurous crochet projects.  I haven’t actually begun any of them yet, but I’ll let you know when I do.

– Katy Perry.  Ross and I watched Part of Me the other night, and I enjoyed it loads more than I expected to.  I now have a bit of a girl-crush on Katy Perry.  She’s heaps cooler than I thought she was.  Plus she has a cat named Kitty Purry.  That’s just too adorable for words.

DSCF7301-This skirt and shoes combo.  These are part of my Boxing Day haul.  The skirt came from Best and Less and cost a whopping $6.  The shoes are from Cotton On and they were just $5.

DSCF7302I think they look super cute together.


– My brother, who bought me a bottle of my favourite wine as a new year’s present.  For those who are interested, my favourite wine is Two Fat Ladies Dolce by Bailey and Bailey.

– Ringo ‘helping’ me to change the sheets on our bed.  It’s super-cute, but not very productive.

What about you darling?  Tell me all about what you’re loving this week in the comments.


  1. I loved ‘Part of Me’, I didn’t expect to like it much, but it was really interesting to see & yeah, I developed a bit of a Katy crush too.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE that skirt!

    • Part of Me really surprised me. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was quite fascinating.
      Would you believe that this skirt is from the teen’s section at Best and Less? As soon as I saw it, I prayed that I could find one to fit me!

  2. I’m loving how much I’m getting done! Sure, it’s stressful in a way, but I’ve accomplished so much, so far and everything is definitely helpful in making this year ROCK. I’m also loving my little family, of course, more than anything. ❤ Finally, dark chocolate Hershey's Kisses which taste like brownies!!!

    Oh and I l-o-v-e your shoes!!!

    • It’s great to be able to tick things off your to-do list. It’s great that you’ve been so productive! Man, those Hershey’s kisses sound ah-mazing. We only get the plain ones here in Australia.
