Recent Things: Baking Up a Storm, Disgusting TV Shows and High Tech Antics

Helloooo! It's Friday again!

This week has flown by as it's been crazy, ridiculously busy, however, I am SO thankful for the busyness as it means lots of exciting stuff has been happening. 

So let's jump right into it! 
Here's what's been happening in our world recently! >> 

Fancy High Tech Library Return System

Recent Realisation: Libraries have apparently become really high tech since I last used them. 

I renewed my library card earlier this year after not using the library for probably three years or so and a whole lot has changed! The first time I went to return a book when the library was closed (it doesn't open til 930 and I was there at 9) I was totally confused. 

You used to just push the book through the flap and it fell into a returns box. But now? You've got to scan the barcode, wait for the return flap to unlock, pull it down, insert the book and then repeat with all the other books you want to return. 

Needless to say I may just wait half an hour next time I have ten things to return haha!

Trixie Dog Wearing a Beanie

Recent Laughs: Trixie in hats. Poor Trixie gets harassed 24/7 by Jesse but sometimes it's actually funny. 

I think dogs in hats needs to be a thing. 

Audrey Hepburn Quote About Helping Others

Recent Quotes: I LOVE this quote from Audrey Hepburn because it explains exactly how I feel. I wish everyone took just a tiny pinch of their time to volunteer and help others because the world would be so much better! 

Chanel Puppy After a Bath

Recent Happiness: Chanel snuggles. Trixie has her snuggly moment but Chanel is our pup who alwaaaays wants to cuddle up next to you. We've been enjoying extra Chanel snuggles this week as she was beautiful and clean (until it rained haha!) 

Rain Rain Go Away

Recent Weather Woes: rain rain and more rain. Luckily yesterday the weather cleared up and blue skies appeared after a drizzly morning and a horrible day on Wednesday! 

Above is Chanel before the rain and after a bath and here is Chanel after the rain :P 

Embarrassing Bodies TV Show - So Gross!

Recent Disgust: Jesse LOVES to watch embarrassing bodies whenever we babysit and last Saturday was no different. 

Have you ever watched that show? If you haven't, do yourself a favour and DON'T because it is so gross!! 

Recent Adventures in Sydney exploring Hidden Trails

Recent Adventures: weekend walks to random parks and reserves in our neighbourhood that we've never ventured to before! 

Check out that view! 

Snuggling with Chanel

Recent Time Out: puppy snuggles and book reading have been my relaxation activities of choice this week. I'm reading a new book this week "Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus" and it's incredibly interesting! I'll have to share more about it when I finish! 

And see, Instagram stories has got me taking more incidental selfies :P I'm definitely not a selfie taker but I just keep snapping and sharing (even no makeup selfies because this girl is too lazy to put makeup on unless there's a real reason for it :P). Be sure to follow me @southerninlaw to see what I'm sharing!

Recently Baking: My Healthy Paleo Banana Bread Recipe. I seems like everyone has been making my paleo banana bread lately so I had to join the party and make my own batch and ohhhhhh mama mia was it good! That's a recipe that never ever disappoints!

You should totally join the party and make it too!

I also made up another batch of my Healthy Chocolate Baked Zoats Recipe to enjoy for breakfast this week and oh how I love it! If you haven't tried it, be sure to check out the recipe!

Recent Constant Joy: Seeing you guys creating my recipes! This week has been a bumper recipe week as I've seen so many delicious recreations of our recipes - from breakfast and desserts to snacks and dinners. 

Sarah was one of the many this week who made my Healthy Paleo Banana Bread Recipe whilst Lyss made an oldie but a goodie! My Healthy Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Recipe!!

Recent Experiments: I was playing around with the Canon 750D on Saturday and decided to shoot a little bit of video to give you a sneak peek into our day! The video kind of speaks for itself, however, I'd love to know; would you like to see more videos from us? Or are they totally lame?
