You'll never be this way ever again..

Thought for the day.  
Have been reflecting on this, as I feel it is so true and applicable to our lives right about now.  In so many ways.  

It is a good Monday.  Why you ask?
a.  Although I wasn't able to make it to my cousins wedding in Colorado, my sis skyped me from their reception so I could see the bride and groom!  Congratulations to the newlyweds, Zach and Sarah. This is the first event I have had to miss out on, which makes me very sad.  But, also very thankful that my family has been SO supportive and understanding.

b.  My friend Skyped the entire bachelorette finale so I could feel "connected".  Gotta love the little things.

c.  This is the first start to a week where I don't have plans or obligations lined up to carry me into the next a long time!  Last night was the first time that it really hit me..."O wow, I don't have work tomorrow...I literally could do anything I want!"  aka sit in my flannel pajamas until 3 in the afternoon (oops!).  

I guess I should get a move on.  Going to run from our hotel in the city to our flat in Kirribilli soon.  In an effort to be cost effective, we are going to meet back "home" every night and cook dinner in our kitchen.  On tonights menu, grilled chicken with lemon basil pasta. 

Here are a few pics from the Australian rules football (AFL) game we attended..Ronnie's work mate hooked us up!  I personally enjoyed the matching scarfs supported by all the fans...and the catchy victory song.  Seems so sophisticated for some reason? Go Sydney Swannies!

This next pic was for my sister.  She tracked where Bieber and Selena were at all times during their Sydney vacay for me, so I thought I would compare the two of us.  We just happened to be walking by the opera house on a cold and overcast Saturday when I found the spot!  Hahaha don't judge.

Overall, we had a wonderful weekend with new friends.  So thankful that Ronnie's coworkers have accepted us as a part of the family.  We feel so welcomed!  And thanks to everyone back home for the sweet words and kind encouragement.  I didn't think I was the blogger type, but it has become a great way to stay connected..and we love reading your comments, too.  I have had so much fun keeping up with our adventures, not only to share with you all, but also so we can look back for ourselves and remember all of the things we did…and the ups and downs along the way. 

All for now,
