We went for a day trip to Toowoomba we just love it up there such a quaint town and so close to Brisbane we have found the most gorgeous country and shabby chic style stores it is my idea of heaven.
The other reason I love visiting Toowomba is that our friends lives there The Country Lady aka Mel and her family, I met her about 11 years ago we worked and partied together as young chicky babes well fast forward a bit and we both have munchkins of similar age and we both have a passion for decorating, and cooking and we can spend the longest time talking and dreaming about all fun things.
Yesterday the weather was fabulous up in Toowoomba not crazy hot we drove first thing in the morning it is only a 1 1/2 drive but it takes us the longest time as the kids always want to stop to talk to the Emus on Marburg, they are just fabulous such big birds and those gorgeous eyes and lashes ENVY 101.
We had a play and morning tea at Queens park, and across the road there is a gorgeous restaurant we popped over to get some coffees, just a beautiful morning and the kids were so excited to see their friends and the park it is picture perfect we even found some pine cones Mel placed some treasure under the cones, the kids were super excited to go on a treasure hunt.
It was getting hot so it was time to go to Mel's place, her house is my idea of heaven, it is country modern and the house backs onto a bush area, we took Henry the dog for a walk, I rode a bike which I wasn't sure if I could still ride one. The kids had fun making mayhem, Farmer Joe had an afternoon snooze and we ladies had the time of our life drinking cold green tea and reading magazines.
A great day with great friends.................. not a bad way to spend a weekday right?
