Recent Things: Clearing Things Up

Hey! Happy Friday! 

This week seriously flew by - so much so that I woke up thinking today was Wednesday..... errrrrrrrr, nope. Now, I am very glad that it's Friday - but sheesh! So much work, so little time. 

But it's okay, because it means we're another week closer to Christmas - and another week closer to Christmas break and I am SO ready for time off with friends and family. 

But before we can get to that, I've got to catch you up on the week! 
Here's what's been happening in our world recently ! >> 

Recent Realisation: That some of you may not realise my life is actually really boring and mundane and probably exactly the same as yours. 

The other day I got an email from someone who wanted me to know they loved my recipes (and I know you'll read this too, THANK YOU again for your sweet email!) and that they were interested in starting a blog but felt their life wasn't as interesting. 

And holdddd up a sweet second people. I don't want anyone to think our lives are fascinating or really interesting - because they're really not. 

In fact, we are exactly like you. We spend our weekdays working, our weeknights eating dinner at home and watching Netflix or reading books. Our weekends are spent with friends sometimes, but sometimes we're just hanging out at home wondering what to do. 

We don't have a glamorous life or an interesting life. We're not at events night after night (because that is way too much peopling and I find those events really draining and bleh because everyone is just trying to be more interesting and successful than the person standing next to them), we don't have social calendars that are packed months in advance (though everything does always seem to happen all at once) and we don't think that we're interesting either. 

So hopefully that clears things up! 

Also, the reason you don't often see a lot of photos in these posts is because I just don't take them - or I don't share them. When we're hanging out with friends or doing things on the weekend, I rarely have my phone out and I never take my camera. I feel weird about putting my friends on the blog without their permission because I don't want them to feel weird about having their photos seen by countless people around the world. I'm definitely not a #tribe #girlgang kinda girl who shares 10,000 selfies with friends on Instagram. I don't even share selfies of myself! 

Recently Eating: Barbecue. Well, Jesse was and I ate a gigantic quinoa, feta, pistachio and roasted vegetable salad I brought from home 😛

We headed to a barbecue competition/festival with friends on Saturday and whilst it was different to what we expected, it was fun to talk and hang out for the afternoon! Jesse definitely got his meat quota for the week 😝

Recently Reading: Sisters and Brothers (⭐⭐⭐⭐), How to Be Perfect (⭐⭐⭐⭐) and Lettters to My Yesterday (⭐⭐⭐)

Recently Snuggling: Trixie. All day every day. Even though she constantly throws the pillows off my chair so she can snuggle into the two she likes. 

Recently Wanting: A cute little yellow duckling - after seeing these ones at our church's preschool on the weekend. They have them for sale for $10 each but I have no idea how to care for a duck, our dogs would hate it and I know they grow really quickly and I don't think a honking duck would be very appealing to our very cranky neighbour.

Recently Posting: Two posts this week! This week I shared The Best Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids and Families this Year as well as this delicious Healthy Hash Brown Crusted Quiche Recipe

But tell me, how has your week been? 
And what's one thing you really want right now?
