Christmas number two

Last night we had our "second Christmas" at my mom and dad's. We had savory mince and rice (Craig's favorite), and my mom's famous peppermint crisp tart.
We opened presents after dinner, and oh what fun it was!
My sister, being the beauty that she is, made my present into a game. She picked a couple of our most memorable childhood times and made them into little presents. She gave me a tamagotchi (present one) , a new gold alice band (present two), stickers (present three), blue sherbert and a candy watch (present four). It was so sweet I literally cried- like tears would not stop coming out of my eyes! Oh and Craigy got Spongebob golf balls, ha!
Oh Christmas, Oh family, so special!

Christmas number one.

This year, Craig and I are spending Christmas in Shaka's rock (near Ballito)- just the two of us; swoooon .

The only downside is that we won't be with our families, and so we have decided to have Christmas dinners at each set of parents beforehand.
Last night was with Craig's mom- we had Avo Ritz as starters and Pasta Alfredo as a main.

Craig's mom always puts in so much effort with the decor and the Christmas tree, it's so much fun! We listened to Michael Buble (who is Christmas in my opinion) and got personalized gym towels as one of our gifts!

On to my parents tonight, yay!

Can you say dream bath?

Spent the weekend at Mabalingwe Nature Reserve with mates.
Apart from the awesomeness of the weekend itself, by far one of the best experiences was waking up 05:30am on Saturday morning (I had passed out drunk not feeling my best at about 9pm the previous night, so I had plenty of beauty sleep), and climbing into this beaut of a bath to watch the sunrise.
What a view!

And so the obsession begins...

This beauty belongs to me as of Saturday. The lovely miss engaged Jessica and I, went galavanting, and I happened to take her to Karoo.
This is a lovely plot of land that houses a sweet little restaurant, pottery studio, gift shop, and then, my favorite of all favorites; an antique/ curio shop.
I saw him sitting all by himself- thought he looked really pretty, and starting playing with him. Smitten was I, and that's how he ended up with me.

I now realize the obsession with cameras, what awesome little gadgets!

Hello and Yum

So I haven't graced the pages of my bloggy blog blog for some time now, hello!

Anyways, I felt inspired to make a delicious supper for my gorgeous husband, and decided to document it- so that I can start blogging again.

So here is what we ate tonight; chicken breasts baked with lemon and feta, together with a salad of spinach, mushroom and hazelnut, with home fried potatoes on the side.

It was great!

(the gooey looking stuff at the bottom is the chicken topped with feta, lol)

I wouldn't call her my idol exactly

But I loved her...

This is Craig and I at his dad's 50th. I am Amy herself, and he is Kurt, ironic combo in hindsight.

Tea, wine and the outdoors

Last weekend I got to see miss jessica again, for the first time in a long long time. What a treat.
We talked, drank wine, attempted a movie, made our very own pizza, talked, drank tea outside, and just had an all-round jolly time.
Love you long time poo.
