Life is good! :)

It's been one of those weekends where I haven't been able to help myself from dancing around the house and breaking out into song every few seconds. I just feel giddy and excited and extremely happy! It may have something to do with the fact that it has been my first actual weekend off in about 5 weeks, so I have actually been able to spend quality time with my husband, a lot to do with the fact that I received a surprise phone call from my Nanna and Grandad yesterday and my Grandad sounded healthy, full of beans and kept making me laugh, and everything to do with the fact that I am simply incredibly thankful for all that I have around me. Now, I am an over thinker, over worrier, over analyzer and every so often I let things get on top of me, little things that sometimes turn into big things, I try and take 50 steps forward all at once or panic about things that in reality would be perfectly ok if I didn't panic! :p Well, this weekend I took a deep breath and wanted to remember and be sure to live every minute with a grateful heart and make the most of every second. So to spread this happiness and share this joyful feeling, I thought I would show you a few pictures from my weekend that made me smile! :) As I am an avid scrap booker, pictures I find have the ability to calm you and turn that frown upside down, whether it's looking back on good times or reading a quote that makes you laugh or inspires you, surrounding yourself with those positive images can really help ones perspective and brighten ones day! :)
I adore this quote as I am always day dreaming and thinking up projects. I firmly believe in dreaming big and that everyone can make a living out of doing something that makes them happy if they just work hard and make it happen! :)
I saw this picture while pinning this weekend and I vowed to myself and told my husband that this summer we need to make an effort to spend more time in the great outdoors and take in more of nature! :) Plus I just love how cute and cozy this looks! <3
Pool days with one of my favourite people in the history of life! My sisters are the absolute best and as I miss my younger sister so much, with her being back in England, I say thank you every day for the moments I get to spend with Kelly (above left) Family is the most important thing in the world to me so I never miss an opportunity to take pictures and enjoy time with them! :) Furhermore, food network magazines and books by the pool when the sun is shining bright...yes please and thank you! :)
I did a little shopping this weekend and treated myself to this beautiful skirt and another Lauren Conrad dress. The colours just make me happy and think of the beach, so I couldn't resist! Also, you can not beat the Kohls sales and getting a $64 Lauren Conrad dress for $20 was something I just couldn't pass on! :p
Dinner with this gorgeous guy! My favourite thing this weekend was getting to spend time with my husband. We went out for dinner on Friday night to Ramseys on Bardstown road and it was as delicious as it was wonderful to have a kind of date night. I don't really like saying date night as I wish to make every night count and make him a priority every single day, but I do understand that sometimes work can get in the way, make you tired and worn out and time can easily run away with you, that you may need to put aside that time each week strictly for a date. In addition its nice to still go on dates after you are married. After work my hair goes up to the point where I look like Mulan in sweatpants and a baggy tee and my husband, bless him, though I'm sure has come to love (I hope :p) and accept this, would love to see me dress up every once in a blue moon. I told him to mark the date down on the calendar, when on Saturday night, yours truly put makeup on at 9:30pm and said yes to going out...that's two nights in a row! :p So whatever you want to call it, it was really lovely to go out and have that time together as it had been a little while! :)
I do have to mention that on the Saturday we went to El Camino's, again on Bardstown road and it was amazing! We ate chips and 4 types of dip and the most scrumptious pork tacos I have ever had! :) Is it just me or can pictures of food just make you feel good and happy?! I can sit and read cookbooks and look at the pictures for hours on end! :)
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. :)
Please feel free to share your favourite pictures, quotes or moments from your weekend!
Love Lulu xx
