We are just wrapping up a fun and relaxing weekend. Actually, I'M wrapping up a fun and relaxing weekend. Peter has unfortunately been working pretty much the entire weekend, so I'm not sure he would call it particularly fun or relaxing.
On Friday night, I met my blogger friend (now real life friend) Courtney from Alkeks Abroad. She and her husband Travis moved from Texas to Brisbane around the same time Peter and I moved to Melbourne last year. We connected online through blogging and have been keeping up with each other's adventures ever since. Courtney and Travis were in Melbourne for the evening on their way to the Great Ocean Road, so we finally met up in person and got some drinks! Sadly we didn't get any pictures, though.
On Saturday I met Katie for brunch at Rustica Sourdough in Fitzroy and had an awesome avo toast with tomato, feta, and ham.
We spent the afternoon walking around Fitzroy and doing a bit of shopping. We passed this window display, which I thoroughly agree with:
This Minnesota Wild jersey was displayed in a thrift shop. So random that it's there and even more random that they decided to put it on a mannequin.
Since it's basically a crime to pass up Gelato Messina when in Fitzroy, we stopped for some ice cream.
My white chocolate raspberry concoction. It was sooo good. This place is the real deal.
Today I met a few friends for drinks on Ponyfish Island, which is a bar under the pedestrian bridge linking Southbank to Flinders Street Station and the CBD. It was a beautiful 73 degree day, perfect for an afternoon drink.
