It has been a wonderful weekend. On saturday my baby(not so baby) boy turned 3. We had a fab day and he was spoilt rotten with lots of Batman stuff. (im still sorting through birthday photos, will hope to share some soon) Then Sunday Neo went to his grandparents to have a second day of being spoilt. Hubs and i were planning on going to ComiCon in Cardiff but with one thing or another, we just didnt get there (Maybe next year, comicon?) But we still had a pretty sweet day wandering around our capital city, drinking coffee, people watching, a bit of shopping (dress for me, games for him) and yummy food. Oh cardiff, you are so lovely. I shall see you again soon.
First we walked through the old arcades, i love the quirky individual shops and the wonderful oldie worldy vibe they have. Its a nice contrast to the super new and plush St. Davids Shopping Centre.
Then we had our first stop for coffee. Im a huge coffee drinker, seriously, i have a problem, haha! This was just stop one, i probably consumed maybe 3 more that afternoon. Maybe its the lack of sleep, children, adult stressful lives that makes me drink so very much but i don’t care, i do simply love the stuff. I have to say i am far more of a Costa person than i Starbucks (i will drink both though) but it got me thinking over said beverage, and i proposed to hubs that we invest in our own coffee machine….(i did a little research! oh yes!!) i mean seriously, i think as a grown adult who juggles work, house and kids i deserve the coffee machine. Pray tell if you know more on this subject please as i feel i have almost completely convinced Hubs on my coffee maker intentions! I also totally went the whole “investment” route, and “think of the savings we could make from me making our own coffees at home an not buying them out!” route, oh yes.. come to mama coffee machine!
For our day date i chose a simple easy going ensemble. My new coated jeans(which fyi, i love love love) flat comfy walking shoes and a light jacket. Its definitely cooled off a lot in these parts lately, the jacket was much needed, which can only mean one ting…autumn is coming! (even more reason for a coffee machine amiright?!)
|a rare appearance of hubby 🙂 love him even more than coffee;)|
Then finally round off with a bit of dinner, Chimichanga’s ..i do love to say that name. Plus the food is awesome! BBQ Pulled Pork Chimichanga and nachos.. ooooo yes!
So there we have it! If you are ever in the UK/Wales come to Cardiff, I will meet you there and treat you to a Chimichanga (and then annoy you to death by saying Chimichanga a bazillion times )
