Friday Favourites: 5th October 2012

Friday Favourites at Southern In Law

Hey lovelies, this week has flown by! Monday was a public holiday so a short week combined with lots of work has me working like a madwoman! Luckily I'm taking the weekend off (as I should do every weekend) and plan on enjoying some me time. 

What I'm reading:
This week I'm reading Queen Mum by Kate Long. Thanks to my busy week, I haven't been able to read much (I'm about 3/4 in though) but it's quite a good book. Not the greatest, but definitely an interesting read.

How did I pick this one? I like to do a little thing called the Library Dash. It involves walking into the library, taking a sharp right at the adult fiction (or biographies/non-fiction) and grabbing the first book I see. This means I'm always picking up something different. I quickly get to the counter before I can be tempted by other books - because if I look too much, I come home with 6 or 7.

Before I got so busy with work, I used to read 2-3 novels a week (I'm talking extra large novels too) and spent time compiling a to-read list on Goodreads and then requesting different books off the library's online catalogue when they become available. Now I'm so busy, I forget to request any books and thus the library dash is all the rage. 


Tear jerker of the week: 
This is an old video that has been making the rounds again and oh boy did it make this little crybaby tear up. I know how bad it is not seeing Jesse for so long, but I can't imagine how hard it would be for a child missing his daddy.

Please Can I Have It? Kitchen: 
Warm, cozy, big, open, light, beautiful - I need this kitchen!
  
Current addiction: 
Cocobella! It's so good - and I am so glad they now have it in 1L cartons because I go through at least one small one a day. I've already joked with my mum that Cocobella should sponsor our wedding since I don't drink alcohol. A Coconut Water toast? Why not!

Squeal of the week: 
SO. MANY. PUPPIES!!!!!!! As if these little ones aren't adorable - and that proud mama at the back!

Food love:
The weather is warming up in Sydney and I am falling in love with ice cream all over again. My current addiction? Either chocolate gelato or vanilla icecream topped with salted natural peanut butter - holy heaven. 

Wedding Lust: 
All of these ideas for an Intimate Wedding at an Apple Orchard are stunning! I love that one couple also had their wedding reception sitting amongst the trees! 

So tell me, what are you loving this week?
