Recent Things: My Flu Fighting Secret + All The Games

Heyyy! Happy Friday! 

This week has felt really odd as everyone in my house has been sick with this horrible flu so they've all been off work and hanging around at home. Soooo I've been feeling like I've been working in the middle of everyone else's vacation that they really wish they didn't have. 

But luckily this week was also full of a lot of good.
So let me catch you up on our week! >> 

Recently Smothering: Myself in essential oils! I'm convinced that the only reason I'm not sick like everyone else I know is because of these oils. 

AND I KNOW, Doterra/Young Living peeps will say that no oils measure up to theirs... but I've bought both Doterra and YL oils and now buy these ones and they are just as good, if not better - and about 1/4 of the price. Don't waste your money, peeps! 

I dilute the Protect oil and put it in a roller bottle (or you could buy this roller bottle) and rub it on the bottoms of my feet at least once a day (usually twice a day once I get out of the shower, then I'll put socks on - but in summer I'll just put it on then put sandals/shoes on). I'll also put it in the diffuser in our room during the day to get rid of all the icky germs (then if Jesse is sick, I'll diffuse eucalyptus etc to help with congestion over night). 

The smell is quite strong so in the diffuser I'll also add a few drops of vanilla essential oil so it's not so in-your-face.

Every time I stop putting them on daily, I'll pick up the first bug I'm exposed to - but this is now the fourth flu/cold Jesse has had that I haven't had - sooo, I'm going to say they're doing something.

Recently Laughing: At this car at the shopping centre. If this was my car, I'd totally mess with my friends... 

All you'd have to say is "Hop in!" and then wait for them to try and figure out how they could possibly do that 😜

Recently Eating: My Garlic and Parmesan Butter Roasted Corn on the Cob Recipe which is still INSANELY popular...

It's gone viral in China (and apparently has been recommended on three different apps which I can't work out how to access to see what they say), crazy on Pinterest and so many people are finding the recipe just from Google searches.

SO, if you're new here and it's all because of that corn. HEY! You are my kind of person.

Recently Receiving: A HUGEEE box of home grown mandarins from my Uncle. 

Of course the first one I ate had a maggot in it (not even joking), but that seems to be the only one affected and I just got very, very, very (un)lucky. 

Luckily I don't think I ate any maggots... I'd just eaten half (and said how delicious they were) when I looked down and saw something squirming on the other side 🤮

Recently Falling in Love With: My weighted blanket

I sleep terribly and always have.. so I decided I wanted to test out a weighted blanket. When I looked online, so many were 200-300+ and I wasn't willing to fork over that kind of money for something that I didn't know would work, so I bought one from Amazon instead and it's PERFECT! 

I'm already pretty much in love and I feel like it's made a difference (though I was SUPER warm.. kind of too warm) - but let me report back next week once my Fitbit tells me how good I've slept 😝

But as for being a terrible sleeper, I just don't sleep deeply ever. I'm a super light sleeper and have been my entire life. I don't usually have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep - I just don't sleep well. 

Recently Playing: Rhino Hero with friends on the weekend (as well as Weird Things Humans Search For which is also SO good) which we always seem to forget about, but it's SO much fun. Seriously one of the simplest and best games.

Forbidden Island Board Game - Best Board Games to Play WIth Friends

Recently Battling: The NBN! They came to install our new NBN modem yesterday but something has obviously gone wrong because we have no internet... so we're doing everything on mobile data.

That meant last night, instead of watching Netflix we played board games 😜

The favourite game of the night? Forbidden Island which our awesome friends Chris and Benita bought us. We've yet to play it with four players, but it's so good as a two player game as you've got to work together to win.
