We initiated our super classy bestie date with brekkie on the balcony in pjs. That is a homemade latte FYI, just to further showcase our fanciness.
One of my many fave things about living with my bestie- getting ready together. Isn’t there just something so girly and fun about getting dressed and made-up together while talking about all sorts of deep randomness?
Case in point: mid conversation in which I was convolutedly expressing my innermost feelings, bestie picked up a peice of string off the floor and said “See this string? The curly one represents your thought processes. The straight one represents mine. You think too much Jessie!!!”
And then she drew me a diagram.
I am now trying to not think too much about who is the smarter one in this diagram. Thanks bestie 🙂 I am going to think about this every time I start overthinking every little aspect of my life.
After that enlightening conversation, coffee time. Cheesecake after breakfast? Why not. I am such a great example of a balanced life, I know 😉 In all seriousness though, we were fueling for a whole lot of walking and we had done a 30 min ashtanga session before leaving. I actually do love me a balanced lifestyle, sweat and cheesecake and a little bit of everything in between is what keeps me mentally and physically healthy (aside from the brutal flu I just had, okay, a few more veggies are going to be making an appearance I promise).
I am posing with my new waitressing top, to keep me nice and toastie and non-flu-infected at work. It is not often I buy new clothes, which you probably realise from seeing me in the same thing again and again on the blog, so when I do, I get pretty excited about it 🙂
Some sights from our wanders:
Ping pong tables for people to play for free in the middle of the CBD. I am assuming you need to bring your own bats, but I think this is really cool. So many fun free things to do in Sydney!
Now get ready for the randomness (HA, as if this post wasn’t all over the place already 🙂 ): a spur of the moment trip to Blacktown. We literally went to the train station, picked a name randomly from the board, and boarded the train. Actually our first pick was Emu Plains (simply cos it sounded awesome and we wanted to know if there are Emus there), but it was too far away for our time frame.
Blacktown wasn’t anything too special, to tell the truth (okay, there really wasn’t much to see at all), BUT…..
We ate an incredible burger from a very popular and full-of-people burger place (the hair was driving me crazy at this point so up it went…ahhh bliss):
We discovered the sparkliest store in the world (only $700 for the hugest sparkliest vase known to mankind…yes it is bigger than bestie): As well as an EPIC op shop (what kiwis call a thrift store) which has some seriously awesome and cheap finds. When there is a rack named fur and vinyl you know the store has swag. Not gonna lie, I wanted every one of these (faux) fur coats, in particular the smurf blue one on the left. I don’t know what me not being kidding about this says about my taste, let’s not open that can of worms 🙂
And we finished the date with apples and peanut butter and a little light reading on CBT (even when I am on holiday from uni, my nerdiness is out of control I know) before work.
Thanks for the amazing date bestie!!
Where did you go on your last bestie/partner/kids date?
Have you ever taken the train somewhere random just for fun? Where did you go? -I think next time we need a little more time so that Emu Plains can happen for realsies.
In terms of exercise and diet, are you an all or nothing person or a little bit of everything person? – I am definitely one of those people who does best with a little bit of everything, if I tell myself something is off limits I start craving it like mad, but I have lots of friends who are much more of the “NO cheesecake or else I want it ALL” type. I think both types are great it’s just good to know which you are so you can balance yourself however works best for you 🙂
