Kikki.K, iBaby, Dougnuts, Mad Mex.

Look, I cannot remember when this photo was taken but it must have been a while back because:-

a) I am not the size of a whale
b) My rings still fit
c) My jacket still fits
d) My nails are painted

None of this has happened for awhile now.  That stain on the bust part of the dress is still there though, don't you worry.

Have you ever wondered what happens if you don't check your mail box for over a month? Wonder no more my pretties, wonder no more.

You get a lot of bills, reminder letters and overdue penalties. 

I need to confiscate the letter box key from The Husband.

I took it upon myself to take charge of the bills as he seems to lose them a lot, and went to Kikki K and picked up this bad boy because I like cute folders and they make mundane jobs like bill paying more fun. 



I also got this adorable baby book as at the moment I just write things in my 2012 diary but when I turf that I do not want to lose the dates of the scans, first kicks etc. 


I was served by lovely blog reader, Kate, and I couldn't help but think 'why doesn't anybody ever recognise me when I look nice!?' I swear I was practically sweating and my hair was a frizzy mess. 

These macarons are from The Cupcake Family in QV and were damn fine. 
Two for me, two for mum and two for Grant who we were visiting in hospital that day.


I headed to the park on Sunday armed with my new John Grisham book which was bound to be just like every single other book of his about law that he ever wrote to leave me in anticipation of what would happen next.

I swear, they are all so repetitive but I cannot get enough of them. 


When you walk past Mad Mex every day, it is sometimes hard to avoid temptation.

All it takes is for me to tell The Husband that our daughter feels like Mexican and we are in that door, sucker.

I order the two soft tacos but usually take them home with me to eat in my personal privacy, away from judging eyes as I make such a mess but yesterday we ate them in store and what a laugh that was.


I feel like the staff over fill them to the extent that they do purely so that they can laugh at me trying to fit it in my mouth.


Would you look at that, a lime!  


The aftermath. Not as pretty as the before shot that is for starters. What a mess.

Soon you will no longer see the third part of our marriage in my photos as The Husband is going to make the switch to the iPhone purely so that we can use the iBaby monitor and he can log in and say HI to the baby when he is at work or on work trips. 

Maybe sometimes I will bring the monitor out into the living area, make sure that the camera is not facing our chaos which is bound to be there, and let him watch us play haha. 

The poor little tacker will have the normal monitor and this one trained on her, like a performing monkey. 

At this stage it looks as if The Husband may have to go overseas for a brief work trip not long after the baby pops out, and I am invited but I think it will be far too difficult to go so will just stay home and have my mum stay over, but it really sucks! 


How good are hot jam doughnuts. 

If you do not like hot jam doughnuts, please leave a comment stating this and your reason as I am yet to meet someone who does not like them.

    1. Oh good you have made me feel better about being a slob.

      They really don't! I pop in every week to look but am usually so disapointed in them.

      Struggling in the heat, I am sure you know the feeling!

  5. Seriously how can you not love hot jam donuts, esp from Vic Market?

    1. Agree 100%

      YA! This one is at QV but I think there is one at Melb Central too. SO GOOD. I hope the Mexican fad never leaves.

      Haha there will be more, but it is so soon after baby that I am anxious. He may not even go, we will see.

  7. WHERE IS THAT VAN AND HOW DO I GET THERE?

    There is at a hot jam doughnut van at the train station near my house every Saturday, and they are okay ones, but they don't have that crunchy outside, they're really floppy, and I am always disappointed when I buy one from there.

    Also, I bought that baby book too, it's so cute.

    2. Vanessa bet me to it!

      They are amaze. Not AS good as the good ol' days but still delish.

      I hate floppy doughnuts. It's just not right.

      It is cute isn't it!!!

  8. Eww, jam doughnuts. I like doughnuts but with sprinkles or cinnamon or chocolate. Don't like jam and it ruins a perfectly good doughnut.

    Macaroons looks delicious.

  9. I hate jam donuts! as for why, I hate any sort of bread/pastry/dough thing with anything sweet. complex I know. I don't have much of a sweet tooth so there's that too.

    but I do love mad mex x

  11. I can hate donuts pretty well now, after years of working at the Royal Show (west coast version of Easter Show) and my job was to make those suckers. Even if we could eat them for free, it wore off pretty fast. Ditto for fairy floss and toffee apples. I still have scars from deep fryer donut burns!

    1. Ohhhhh look I feel for you I really do.
      No wait. I am lying. I want free doughnuts :P

      Gah toffee apples and fairy floss would make me sick real quick though.

  12. I don't like hot jam doughnuts because I find them too sweet, and as they're served hot I always burn my tongue :P I prefer custard doughnuts.

  14. Mexican is the best! I like hot jam doughnuts but I don't LOVE them. There's never enough jam and I find the dough isn't sweet enough for me. Custard doughnuts though - those are amazing!

    1. Agree. Nothing makes me happier than eating mexican.

      mmmmm custard. I ate custard croissants every day for the last few months. Straight to my bum I tell you.

  16. I hate jam and am not too fond of doughnuts anyway! HAHA!

    I love that target maternity dress - why doesn't my local tarj have it??? How long ago did you buy it?

    I'm not sure about the whole baby monitor thing. We live in a small house, so hearing babe will be fine, and I don't want to get obsessed/worried about watching babe sleep... I have looked at the ibaby before and thought it was pretty nifty. I might wait till lo arrives and see how I go.

    1. It would appear that I was wrong and lots of people hate jame doughnuts haha!

      I got it about 2 months back I think, it has ruching down the side and a drawstring for different lengths so I really like it.

      Our house is small too, but there are some things that The Husband is non negotiable about (such as: No black prams, must have breathing pad under baby etc). When we go to peoples houses with babies he clings to the monitor haha so cute.

      The only reason I am getting the iBaby is so that he can log on when he is on overnight trips and when he goes overseas without us! Technology these days.


      I think that there are people who love monitors and those who hate them!

      How many weeks are you?

    2. And I will be stalking Target tomorrow for whereabouts of that dress - just in case!

      Delete
  17. I'm 35 weeks. Getting close to d-day!

    Yeah I think the ibaby would be perfect for the situation you'll be in with a travelling partner. If I got a monitor I'd likely go the whole hog and get something decently $$$ so waiting and just seeing how I/we feel is probably the way to go for now. I def know many people for and against them and each argument seems pretty reasonable.

    It seems to be the thing with buy baby stuff - you just don't kow how you will go or how your baby will be - so you just don't know what to get. Plus I don't like being wasteful and freak about the idea of buying something that is never used!

    I asked my sister when my neice was 6 weeks old what her must haves were and she said 'diapers, spew rag and nipple shields'. HAHA! Totally the basics!

  18. I don't like jam doughnuts but only because I don't like jam! The only doughnuts I will eat are cinnamon ones, I am very much a doughnut connoisseur haha.
