Recent Things: Nerf Battles and Caterpillar Wars

Hello there! Happy Friday!

I missed last week's post because it was a short week and a hectic one and the day totally got away from me. But it's a new week this week and I've got the last two weeks to catch you up on!

Here's what's been happening in our world recently >> 

Capsicum Plants

Recently Growing: Capsicums - and a whole bunch of other vegetables... only to have caterpillars attack! Our neighbour is growing brassicas (broccoli, cabbage etc) so our yard has been filled with cabbage moths floating around... and it seems they've been laying their eggs on my capsicum plants... which then meant I had little hungry caterpillars eating their way through.

Homemade Chilli and Garlic Pest Spray for Veggies

On the weekend I made a garlic and chilli spray to try and get rid of them and it seemed to work - but i'll have to keep an eye on them. 

Hopefully they get the message and leave my veggies alone!

Yellow Squash Seedlings

I'm also questioning my choice to plant things so early because I have seedling trays overflowing and still quite a few weeks until we move into our house..... dun dun dunnnnn.

Recently Realising: I can't take my husband anywhere 😜

Remember that fruit platter from my Lemon Cream Cheese Fruit Dip Recipe? That's what happened when it was put in front of Jesse... fruit faces 😜

Nerf Battle War

Recently Preparing: For a Nerf battle war 😜

We got a bunch of Nerf guns after babysitting and having an epic Nerf battle the other week and we are fully stocked for our next battle. We even bought 200 bullets (SO cheap on Amazon here - and AU link here - we got Amazon dupes rather than the branded ones but they work exactly the same and are so much cheaper)

Mickey and Minnie Woven Tapestry Throw Blanket

Recently Buying: A bunch of cute Christmas things on Amazon! I bought this Mickey and Minnie Woven Tapestry Throw Blanket which is SO cute, as well as these Knitted Christmas Stockings (AU link is here)... which I won't have a mantle for this year... but hopefully will have a mantle for next year because that's in our living room plans!

Christmas Lights Store

Recently Planning: Christmas decorations... and visiting allll the Christmas stores.

I'm thinking I might put up a Christmas lights tips and tricks post this year since we're going to be starting from scratch with our lights at the new house and the little tricks and shortcuts we use at home here might be helpful for your own Christmas light displays!

I'm thinking of going for all warm white lights this year and then adding colour if I can find great lights before Christmas!

Recently Reading: and LOVING The Good Teacher (AU link here). I could not put it down! I also read and quite enjoyed The Return (AU link here) and have a few other books I'm looking forward to getting stuck into this month.

Easy Lemon Cream Cheese Fruit Dip Recipe Easy Jack Skellington Cupcakes Recipe for Halloween

Recently Posting: Two deeelicious recipes! This Easy Lemon Cream Cheese Fruit Dip Recipe and this Easy Jack Skellington Cupcake Recipe for Halloween.

But tell me,
What's been happening in your world? 
And Christmas lights - yay or nay?
