Hi all and happiest of Friday’s to you! I don’t know what the weather is like where you are but the weather in Melbourne right now is pretty cold and miserable which makes the working week seem even longer and it means I’m even more excited for the weekend.

Tonight I’m taking Nick on his belated birthday dinner, I was meant to take him last Friday but thinking it was a pub that we wouldn’t need a booking, how wrong I was it was a disaster so this week I’ve booked again so it should all go to plan. I seem to have a knack for stuffing up his birthday dinners, another year I had booked a Tapas restaurant and we arrived and they had no record of our booking, as I’d booked online and didn’t know there was a step 2 confirmation process – disaster.

Tomorrow I have very little planned as on Sunday I am doing the Mother’s Day Classic with my mum and sister for Mother’s Day. It is a 4km or 8km walk and a lot of people do it with their mum’s here on Mother’s day. Here’s my recap of it from last year.

Here’s my Friday Favourites this week…

Friday Favourites

My favourite pointless but hilarious buy of the week is this Canine’s Raincoat. So cute and so funny :D

My favourite quote this week. I just think it is a great reminder to be grateful for the little things in life.

My favourite necklace of the week is this statement necklace from Neiman Marcus. I must really be craving a statement necklace since I’ve posted one to my favourites three weeks in a row.

My favourite outfit of the week. I love everything about it EXCEPT for the shoes, they are a bit too blocky for my liking but everything else is gorgeous. The original image only linked to a spam site on Pinterest – I hate it when it does that.

My favourite food porn of the week are these Cookie Dough Billionaire Bars. Holy Food Porn Batman, these look AMAZING!

That’s a wrap!

What are your plans this weekend?

Are you good at organising birthdays for others?

    OMG why did I have to google Firemen Saving Cats?! Now my eyes are all leaky! But thank you ;)

      I know it did make my eyes leaky too but how sweet are the pictures? :)

    I totally love that outfit but I am right with you on the shoes. I would totally end up falling if I wore those (which would probably lead to making a mess of that beautiful outfit)

    HA that raincoat is hilarious! I don’t think Maddie would allow that thing on her for more than 5 seconds.

    That kitten picture is awesome. Love it.

    Too funny you say you don’t like the shoes, I saw them and was all I LOVE THE SHOES!

    This weekend I’m driving to my mom’s for a visit on Saturday and then am going to run 30k on Saturday and hang out with a friend.

      How cute is it?

      Hehe that is funny! I like other wedge shoes but just not these ones.

      I hope you enjoyed the visit with your mum. I hope the 30k run went well too!

    Oh wow that kitten picture just breaks my heart. So sweet. Those cookie bars look amazing! I swoon over desserts like that but I have very little patience for high-maintenance sweets. Maybe I’ll get my sister to make them… ;)

      I’m never actually going to make these desserts myself but if someone was to make them for me I wouldn’t say no ;)

      I hope you had a lovely weekend.

      I know how delicious do they look?

      At least the weather this week in Melbourne is somewhat better, 20 Degrees most days ;) I hope you had a lovely weekend.

    Seeing those Cookie Dough Billionaire Bars at 5.30am is just sinful to my appetite! Now I NEED melty chocolate in my belly!
    Mother’s day walk sounds fun! Hope all goes well with Nick’s bday dinner – I am pretty good with bday’s but dinner outside isn’t involved, there was one time I threw a bday dinner for my sister when I lived in a townhome and did not quite plan out the whole parking situation- people ended up having to walk almost a half mile from where they parked …gah!
    Have a wonderful weekend Jan!

      Lovely that you planned a birthday dinner like that for your sister though :) Sure she would have appreciated it.

      I hope you had a lovely weekend too :)

      Hehe I know right? So funny.

      Yes! It annoys me, I even try google image search but sometimes it is just nowhere to be found.

      I hope you had a lovely weekend.

    Omg that dog rain coat hahahaha wtf why. But that outfit!! I love it except for the shoes like you said. I mean they are fine but not quite my style. Have a great weekend Jan!

      Lol I know, because somewhere someone has too much money and would actually buy this for their dog, that’s why ;)

      Yep agreed! I want to find that top though, it is so pretty.

      I hope you had a lovely weekend too :D

    Do you guys celebrate mother’s day the same day as us? This weekend I’m excited because we have a family picnic with all my aunts, uncles, and cousins. Being around family always makes me happy and I can really use them right now! Have a great weekend!

      I think so, we celebrated it on Sunday, is that the same as you?

      Sounds like you had an awesome weekend planned with family. I hope you enjoyed it and Mother’s Day if it was on for you too :)

    At least you try to do nice dinners! You’re a better gf than me who only remembers the day after that I missed Ian’s birthday. That doggy rain coat is the most ridiculously awesome thing I’ve ever seen.

      :) I have given Nick his birthday present months late before but usually on the day I will remember to give a card and chocolate at least.

      Haha how stupid and funny is it at the same time?

      I hope you had a lovely weekend.

    So I stopped reading your post halfway through so I could click over and make sure my own reservation didn’t have a two-step confirmation!! Lucky for me it does not, but I’ll definitely never make that mistake now!

    My weekend is going to be alllll about packing and related errands. I’m realizing that the older I get, the longer is takes to pack, but I haven’t adjusted my expectations accordingly. Like when John started packing this time I thought he was being obnoxious. Now we are running out of time and still have so much to do, argh! Sunday will also be spent preparing for my parents to arrive. They get here Monday for my graduation. :)

    Happy belated birthday to Nick, and have a fabulous time at the Mother’s Day Classic!

      Haha good to hear your reservation didn’t have a 2-step process. What was even worse on that night was that we then tried no less than 3 different restaurants to go to and only got into the 4th one we tried.

      I hope all the packing went well. I absolutely do not like moving house all the cleaning and packing involved, no thanks! I am so excited for you to graduate!! Yay! You must be super excited, you seriously won’t know yourself once you have all the extra time.

      I had a lovely weekend, I hope you did too my friend :)

    I work in Queensland on a construction site. All the boys thought it was so cold here this week! I grew up in the US and I’m used to much colder temps, so they all thought I was nuts when I wasn’t wearing my jacket.

      Yes I shouldn’t complain too much, I know there is much much colder places right now than Melbourne. Melbourne isn’t even as cold as it is going to get ;)

      So funny you were able to get away with not wearing a jacket when everyone else was freezing. I hope you had a nice weekend <3
