Just thought I would say a quick hello and share what I have been up to lately. Precisely, what I have been eating, reading and watching. The important stuff you know!
|| Eating ||
I love making dinners that provide leftovers the next day, so I can have them for lunch. I am not a sandwich girl, I just can't do it! I made this yummy Thai style chicken meatball salad this week and can recommend it. Super easy, fresh and oh so tasty.

I have been reading Adore Aloha!
This edition features homes and interiors with a coastal twist and that embody the Hawaiian spirit. Did you catch my Three Bird Reno post last week - well one of the three birds Lana features in this edition, showing off her new pool renovation. You wont want to miss it!
|| Watching ||
I am guilty of loving trashy reality TV when it comes to anything dating - Farmer Wants a Wife is a fav and now this show Seven Year Switch is a new fav. Have you been watching it? Ahhh I am hooked. I cannot wait to see tonights episode air, the future for some of these couples is so uncertain.
Ryan & Cassie and Jason & Michelle both have children and it is going to be a tricky one to see how they finish the experiment. I feel like they have both come 360 degrees and can see the relationship flaws and what they need to do. I am just not sure if the love is there anymore and if the damage has been done? What do you think?
Don't get me started on Brad & Taleena and Tim & Jackie. There is no future there, I don't think either couples are right for eachother!
|| What else? ||
Here are some great reads and finds that I am loving across the web this week.
Sam at The Annoyed Thyroid has a weekly post called "She's so Inspiring", I love it and do find it just that - inspiring. Be sure to take a read!
Nicole over on The Builders Wife has a great idea to occupy the kids - camping. Read about how many positives it has brought out in her kids when they have to fend for themselves.
Ever looking for an easy lunchtime meal? I love to make easy quesadillas. Its basically like a gourmet toastie! I came across this recipe from Create Bake Make and thought you might like it - Chicken and Pesto Quesadilla. Yum!
I love my local library and often visit to borrow magazine and recipe books. Lately I have been a little slack though, but its just reminded me that you can read magazine for free. Try it!
Remember Dee off Neighbours? She is now a Mum to six kids under eight. I think you will want to read this and read her parenting tips on what she calls is, parenting, aka an extreme sport! Wow, brace yourself!
So many stars change their names. I am sure you have heard of Alicia Keys right? Did you know her name is actually Alicia Augello Cook. Better known as Alicia Keys though...the artist who plays the piano. See the connection?
What would you do if you found a note like this in your hotel bed? You would like to think this doesn't happen!
Ever thought of what it would be like having two kids under one. Christie Hayes writes about being pregnant six weeks after giving birth. Yikes!
Tell me, have you changed your name?
Do you have kids who are really close in age - six under the age of eight, or two under one?
What have you been watching lately? Are you glued to trashy reality TV shows too? Tell me I am not the only one!
