Lifestyle; my birthday! πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰

Oh my goodness, I’m 27… Bloody hell. I am starting to feel it though now.

So my little man really spoilt me. He got me sooo much… I mean who would have thought a kitten could afford & know how to order all this stuff πŸ™„πŸ˜‚ 

Sam made me breakfast & we went off to the coast as it was a glorious day. We had a good walk & went round the amusements. I totally beat him at bowling too πŸ’πŸ½ we got some yummy doughnuts & treats & a hot chocolate too.

I then finished off my cake & if I say so myself, for a first try I think I did pretty well. Right?! 🍰 I got the topper & the candles from Amazon incase anyone wants to know.

Going back to the gifts I got. I was well & truly spoiled rotten. So many bath bombs, candles & smelly’s! Exactly what I wanted. Plus a fair few bottles of drink, including some yummy unicorn gin which didn’t even last 5 days πŸ˜‚ I had a lovely bunch of flowers & some new lunch boxes as well. Sam also got me some nice adidas trainers.

My mum & nephew then came round for a Chinese for tea.. And to taste the cake I made.Which, might I add, went down very well πŸ’πŸ½  Sam’s mum & dad then joined us for a drink too.

Thanks to everyone who made my day special πŸŽπŸŽ‚

Lifestyle; girls trip to Manchester πŸΈπŸ°

Before I get in to this post I would like to thank Alice for making me laugh & constantly smile for two days straight!! Also… For putting up with all my moods πŸ˜‚ especially when I was hangry! 

We had a fab few days away for a little girly break! We went to Manchester as we wanted to go to friendsfest. If you have never been you really should it was so much fun! We started the break the right way with a few drinks on the train… I’m such a lightweight I was yawning away after a couple πŸ˜‚ honestly though I needed it.

The hotel was fabulous for the price! We paid Β£68 each for two nights. To me that’s a bargain. It was in the centre & just look at how funky it was!! The bed was comfy (actually had the best night sleep I’ve had in ages) & we even had breakfast included. We were literally in a croissant coma… Oops! 

I don’t want to go to into what happened at friendsfest as I’ll do that in another post. But we had the best day ever! My cheeks hurt from smiling so much. If you’re a friends fan I would highly recommend it. Could we be any happier?! 

We ate out that evening & had a few drinks too 🍸 we went to the slug & lettuce, drank a few pornstar martinis between the two of us… πŸ™„ & had some food too obviously! Ha! When we got back to the hotel we put on Celebs go dating & had like a big girly sleepover with another couple of drinks & lots of nibbles while we were tucked up in our beds πŸ˜‚ we’re either big kids or old ladies! 

On our last day it was bucketing it down, but we walked so much our feet hurt πŸ™ˆ did a little bit of shopping in the city & then made our way to have afternoon tea. The venue was stunning, we went to cloud 23 which had incredible views. The afternoon tea itself was delicious too! 

Literally we did soooo much in a small amount of time, but we had such a good girly getaway!! 

Lifestyle; How we spent Christmas 2018 πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½

I cannot believe it’s done already… Completely flies by. We have all that hype & then that’s it, no more 😩 I had such a lovely Christmas I don’t want it to end so quickly. I hope you all had a lovely one too.

We were both so excited & happy to wake up together in our first home. I did ask Sam what the best part of Christmas was for him & he said that was his favourite part! 😍 I’m excited to start making our own traditions! 

I set up some little blankets for us in the conservatory & put the heater on so it was nice & cosy for opening our presents. Sam was cooking our breakfast & I made our drinks. We had scrambled eggs & salmon… Mmmm!! πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ we also had some Buck’s Fizz too! 

I then had a loooovely hot bath whilst Sam tidied up. We got ourselves ready then went to visit Sam’s family for the day. We ate, drank & played silly games. So we were super happy & merry! I then got a little too merry & fell asleep πŸ˜‚ 

On Boxing Day we went to my family & had another meal 😜 lucky burgers aren’t we?! We then helped my nephews build some of their toys & played some games with them.

In the evening on Boxing Day we played friends monopoly (Sam bought it for me for Christmas) & had some yummy nibbles & drinks! 

We both had such a lovely Christmas! What did you get up to? 

Catch up; Caitlin sandwich style πŸ‘―πŸ’πŸ½

Seeing as I love these type of posts I thought I’d incorporate it into the post about our weekend catch up! 

1. How and when did you meet? 

Caitlin s: the airport on the way to Marbs!! We were going on a mutual friends hen do and I’d never met any of the other girls before! 

Caitlin c: at the airport & it was soooo easy to get along with her ☺️

2. What is your most favourite memory? 

Caitlin s: there’s lots but definitely walking down the Marbella strip with our arms round each other, talking about how everyone misspells our name πŸ˜‚ I think I’ve got a picture…

Caitlin c:
either the one above or the time Caitlin came to stay at mine & all the girls came over the same evening. We played some stupid games, including a headphone game which was a brilliant night… Steph also chucked a whole cocktail all over the kitchen floor πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

3. Describe each other in one word. 

Caitlin s: Giggly

Caitlin c: Fun 

4. What’s their favourite animal? 

Caitlin s: DOGS, all animals but dogsπŸ’—

Caitlin c: definitely dogs… Although we keep talking about little bunny rabbits this weekend 🐢🐰

5. Have you ever been on a holiday together? 

Caitlin s: MARBS well we met on a holiday … Aren’t we overdue one??? 

Caitlin c: Marbella! Which was for sure where we started our friendship… 

To start the weekend Caitlin came on the Friday evening… She actually arrived at mine before I managed to get back from work, but it’s nice she feels comfortable enough to do this! We had a dominos & made our way through a bottle of prosecco too 🍾 we had a good chat & took advantage of chilling, so we had a face mask & good cleanse πŸ’πŸ½ isn’t it fabulous being girly?!

Caitlin also bought me a present bless her for when Sam & I move into our house… She is the cutest. It had a cocktail shaker & a mojito candle in 🍹

On Saturday the weather was sooo cold, it snowed pretty much all day but we decided to go out for afternoon tea. I bloody love cake so this was good! We went to the Dukes head, in Lynn. We decided to have some prosecco with it too… Jeez I sound like I love alcohol a bit too much, but yeah… It was soooo tasty!! The cakes weren’t too bad either πŸ™„πŸ˜‚ 

We had a chilled afternoon with a friend having a chat so she could then catch up with Caitlin. We then napped… Because we’re both those sort of people. We had some fajitas & put our pjs on before the other girls came over. We played cards against humanity, as always, & pointless – which is the hardest game ever!!! Drank cocktails & demolished bags of Doritos, you know how it is πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

What did you all get up to this weekend?
