Boy am I glad today is Friday, especially after the hectic work week I have had. Working a full time job + trying to keep the house in some sort of order + fitting in what fitness I can is proving quite the challenge at the moment. Particularly when pregnancy fatigue seems to have returned with a vengeance and I find myself yawning from around 2.00pm onwards lol.
So suffice to say I am happy the weekend has arrived. And a long weekend too (due to a public holiday on Monday.
And, although I should probably schedule in some nap time over the weekend, we have quite a bit planned, most of which revolves around food. A pre-game lunch tomorrow with family, an engagement party/dinner on Sunday, and lunch with friends on Monday. Should be deliciously fun!
While I was wandering around the supermarket tonight to get the ingredients for tomorrow's lunch party, I realised it is that time of the month.
aka. time for another monthly recap. And, on reflection, what a lovely month it has been.
It all started with our big announcement,
And my fertility story.
Spring seemed to have sprung, but winter then returned with a vengeance. Hence, quite a few comfort meals...
Returned to our weekly menu plan.
Mr BBB made a kitchen appearance...
with a very tasty result!
We hosted a long Italian lunch, to cheer the Wallabies on to victory against Italy.
Where gluten free cannelloni...
And spelt chocolate brownies were the star features.
A craving for cherry ripe was had....
Resulting in a work in progress cherry ripe slice.
There were bargain book buys...
And a tasty vegetarian revamp of an old favourite!
T'was certainly a stand out September indeed!
I just realised that last September I announced to the blog world that I would be tackling a Half Ironman. This September I announced that I would be 'tackling' a very different event - motherhood! It seems that September is the month of announcements for me lol.
And, it just dawned on me, that when I do my next monthly recap, I will be over halfway through my pregnancy. Crazy right!?
Here's to an Outgoing October!
What about you? Did you have a stand-out September? Any plans for the long weekend (if you are lucky enough to have one)?
