Recent Things: Snuggles, Coffee Addictions and Supernanas? (RT#14)

Recent Things in the Southern In-Law World

Another day another dollar - well, another week actually! I feel like my weeks revolve around Fridays and Sundays. One second it's Friday, then it's Sunday, then all of a sudden it's Friday again. That's probably because Fridays and Sundays are my favourite days (and Wednesdays too now that we have our small group bible study on Wednesday night!).

We have been busy busy busy this week and next week will be even busier! Jesse and I are actually coming up to our 2nd year Engagementiversary and it seems like those 2 years flew by (don't even get me started on how we've already been married for 7 1/2 months!) 

But let's have a look at what we've been up to recently!

Snuggling with Chanel
Recent Love: my little snuggle bunny - and she's actually curled up on my lap while I type! But Chanel is kind of a constant all the time love rather than a recent/sometimes love.

All You Need Is a Little Bit of Coffee and A Whole Lot of Jesus Mug

Recent Must Have: Coffee in my favourite All You Need is a little bit of Coffee and a whole lot of Jesus Mug and soup. I seriously cannot stop eating soup - obsessed.

Quest Bar Fail - Quest Bar Review

Recent Fail: This week we tried Quest Bars for the first time and I hate to say it, but I don't think we're fans... Lots of SIL readers told us we had to try them and the people at Quest sent us a bunch of bars to try but I don't think they're right for us.

We don't eat any artificial sweeteners (even "natural" artificial sweeteners like stevia) so the bars were crazy sweet for us - and our stomachs weren't fans of the sweeteners either. 

Beak and Sons Authentic Butcher Style Sausages

Recent Win: Jesse usually hates the regular sausages we have in Australia, however, yesterday Beak and Sons sent us some of their new sausages (available at Woolworths, Harris Farm & some IGAs) and Jesse decided to put them to the test and they were a major win! He's now decided that he can join in the traditional Aussie BBQ - just as long as these sausages are on the menu. They're also gluten free, MSG free, free of artificial flavours and made with 92% beef compared to the 70% industry average.

Recent Posts this Week: In case you missed them, here's what's been on the blog this week from oldest to newest: 

Super-nana! Woolworths Jamie's Garden Characters

Recent Childishness: When I saw Woolworths had a new promotion running with a superhero banana I had to have one. Whilst I couldn't find any of the plush toys, I did manage to get a Supernana sticker so I'm temporarily satisfied ;) (but I've told Jesse he needs to find me a Supernana plush stat!)

Your Marriage by God's DesignRecent Reads: I've just started reading Your Marriage by God's Design and I am loving it!

This week I finished reading "Start Here: Beginning a Relationship with Jesus" and it has been the best book I've read for helping out our youth group kids. The book simplifies things in a way I never would have thought of and has given me analogies for explaining things to our kids that are going to help them so so much!
But tell me, how has your week been? 
Have you ever tried Quest Bars? 
And what's the best thing you've eaten/read/watched this week?


  1. Kristy, I just found your blog. Thank you for sharing your celiac story. Mine actually is almost identical. We are even the same age. diagnosed at the same time. I am still searching for answers. I have had different allergies at different times that have come and go. I also have hashimotos thyroiditis. It is such a long struggle to figure out what works and what doesn't. Thank you for sharing, it is always so nice to read others stories... especially since ours is so so similar!
    thank you

  2. Hi Isabel!
    I am so glad that you found my blog - it's always good to know there's someone else that's been there done that. It's definitely tough getting to a point where you feel well, but you just have to keep on keeping on until you get there! xx
