It's a bugs life

The best part of the footy is the hot dog.
Is Don, is Good.

We schlepped it to Etihad on Friday night to watch Richmond vs St Kilda.
I don’t barrack for either teams, but The Husband goes for Richmond and is still trying to convince me to swap. 

It will never happen sonny.



I enjoyed the first quarter and then kind of napped through the second and third, with wake up breaks for food. I came alive during the fourth quarter which was close and a close game is a good game.

Thank goodness Richmond won, not only so I could fist pump and yell “YELLOW AND BLACK” like a toothless supporter, but also so that I wouldn’t have to deal with The Husband moping and licking his wounds.



Three little tackers, presumably players kids, ran out with the team and they were just too adorable. 


Winter is upon us and I don’t think that this scarf is going to cut the mustard. 



My sister Cat sent me these awesome red jelly sandals, perfect for Bali in a few months I say! 



Snapped this shot of Melbourne over the Yarra on Thursday night and felt like the biggest tool ever. 



Embraced my curls.

Affectionately referred to as Rats Tails by my mum. 
Now more like piggy tails.



Desperate for this ottoman. 



Discovered that if I go to bed full clothed with a hot water bottle, I am destined to wake up completely clothesless.



Shared some macarons with The Husband. We eat half and then pass it on because sharing is caring.
Or are they macaroons? I have no idea.

Strawberry and Cream
Salted Caramel
Raspberry
French Vanilla 



Had time to kill on Saturday, polka dot attacked my nails.

Used a bobby pin and it only took me 5 minutes so ordered a pizza and went to bed early as was so bored.



Wore too many stripes. 


Ohhed and Aahhhed at the cuteness whilst reading Jubilee stuff.


Speaking of cuteness, here is the mother load!! 

Thomas



Henry


Raina



Whilst recovering from the cuteness of the above children that I do so love, I shopped for some peanut butter and decided to get this as it was on sale.

Don’t love it like I do my trusty Kraft, but at least I wont eat a tub within a week, with a spoon, at my work desk. Blessing in disguise I suppose you could say.

Short and sweet post.

  1. Embrace the curls! If you looked tizzy like Kath Day-Knight, then that would be a different story.

    And they are macarons.

    Macaroons are coconut based. Macarons are almond based.

    Try whipped peanut butter....even better.

  4. Me & the boyfriend do that with macaroons as well - so we can both get all the flavours. True love, I say.

    Do some googling on the health effects of eating the hydrogenated vegetable oil in your kraft PB and you won't want it anymore. Actually, don't, it ruined it for me and I sort of wish I didn't know.

  5. Don't know if you can see this, but this is how we divvied up 4 macarons in Paris to share between 4:

  10. On the macaron versus macaroon issue, I subscribe to the viewpoints purported by I Do Believe I Came With a Hat:
    http://idobelieveicamewithahat.com/2011/05/macaronmacaroon-lets-call-the-whole-thing-off/

    The above link provides a good read if not a credible source of info.
    Your blog is always a good read too.

  14. Phil is trying to convert me to Richmond too... all i ever hear when they're winning is GO TIGES then a tiny 2 yr old voice copying "GOD-IGE" lol

  15. Yup, it is macaron, not macaroon. Macaroons are made with shredded coconut. And they're both delicious, whatever they're called!

    I love your striped shoes - they're super cute. Winter is in full force in Sydney too. So chilly. My scarves are not cutting the mustard. Knitting time, I think!
