Friday again - and one week before Easter! Where does the time go?!
This week has been reaaaally busy for me so the blog has been neglected a little bit - but I promise next week is filled with fun. I've got a tonne of baking and photographing to catch up on as I really want to share some yummy Easter recipes with you all!
But let's take a look at what we've been up to recently (and there's some recipe sneak peeks too!)
Recent Dorkiness: So, Jesse bought us these hoodies as a un-iversary present, which came quite a bit late, but they were totally worth waiting for. We're really dorky... really.
Recent Recipe Testing: These beauties would be homemade Easter Egg Truffles and holyyyyyy hallelujah they are good. Keep an eye out for the recipe this weekend (and if you don't see it, tell me to stop procrastinating and photograph them NOW) - they're gluten free, sugar free, low fat, vegan and absolutely delicious.
We have also perfected our Healthy Banana Cheesecake crusts so the recipe is coming very very soon - we're inclined to call them Banana Breakfast Cheesecakes (as we've been eating them for breakfast and they're seriously that healthy) but we're worried that might scare some of you off.
Plus, do you see why I don't photography my food all the time? My kitchen has the worst lighting in the universe. The wall behind that plate is actually cream, it just looks like a black abyss ;P
Recent Must Have: Scarves, scarves and more scarves. This week has been cold, so I've been wrapping myself up like a burrito. The pink pashmina was the best buy at just $8 and I've also developed a little obsession with pretzel knotting scarves (well, that's what I call it but I don't know if it's actually a thing since I'm not really cool enough to be part of things ;P)
Recent Reads: Hellllllooooooooo bookworm! These are the three books I've devoured this week and they were all incredible. Since I read so many books and love getting book suggestions from other people, I'm thinking of sharing some book reviews every now and again - what do you think?
I definitely need to tell you about Jesus or Nothing and How to Be Rich because they had me nodding along and mmmm-himg to just about every page.
Recent Laughs: So last night.... I hid inside a cardboard box waiting for Jesse to get out of the shower and then when he opened the door I jumped out.
I scared the absolute living daylights out of him. He threw his hands up in the air and jumped about 10 feet and it was hilarious. I'm known for being a little bit of a ninja so you never quite know what to expect ;P
Recent Successes: Dinner on Sunday at Church! Everything was devoured and everyone commented on how good it was. We had ribs, cornbread and mini cheesy quinoa quiches as well as salad and baked potatoes.
Recent Mantra (and iPhone background): As inspired by How to Be Rich and our current Discipleship Explored Work - this is something I'm trying to remember this week. We all get way too stressed about money (myself included) and it's really not worth it.
Recent Nelly-ness: The queen of snuggles has been loving this cold weather because it means there are blankets and laps waiting to be snuggled into.
Recent Health: I went back to my haematologist yesterday and found out that.... MY IRON LEVELS ARE GOOD!! So I'm off the hook for two months and then it's another round of blood tests to see when I'll need my next iron infusion - which hopefully won't be for a long long time (but he said it's impossible to know, I might need one the next week, six months later or a year later). The plan now is to keep my iron levels at a normal level and never let them drop down as low as they were before.
He's also planning on only giving me a half dose next time so I don't get quite so sick!
Recent Fun: I'm working on a new project together with my talented husband.
Together we're working on designing a range of custom designed items - from punny tshirts to cute workout wear and stationery.
Here's a little sneak peek of what we're working on....
The eggshausted tee is clearly one of our punny styles whilst the fueled by peanut butter racer back and allergy queen platter was created for me because I am the peanut butter queen and the allergy queen.
We've actually said for a while that I needed a special plate and that was one of the first things we designed ;P
But I'd love to know - would you be interested in some cute custom designed things? A lot of our designs are going to focus on silly puns (because we think we're punny), healthy living and allergy awareness.
But tell me about your recents;
The last time you scared someone?
Recent obsession? (Clothes? Food? You name it!)
