Well hey there! So much news peeps! After NINE years of being girlfriend and boyfriend I am so super chuffed to announce that Gary asked me to marry his handsome self last weekend! YAY! It's so cool to finally be able to call handsome my fiance! and le bling bling (Captain Sparrkels, as I like to call her) is so pretty I can't stop staring at her! Will that ever stop?
I am also on this most serious diet and have lost a total of 8.65kg's in the past 4 weeks bitches! Sweet Potato! that's insane, right? Plus I was top looser for last month so I am the weeener too! For those of you who wanna loose this diet works, for reals! Expensive but that keeps you motivated to stick to it. Go here for more info!
The fruits of my and Garelles (that's Gary's new nickname) labour. We finally got it on our third attempt. Yay!!! In celebration of our lil sisters bday! It was delicious and everyone was totally wowed out of their pants when we sliced it up. Nice!
P.S. have y'all seen Jane Eyre? Flippen Schaboodle! If you're one who loves a good old period love story this bad boy is for you! I even sang a little song and did a little dance when it finished that's how happy it made me.
Yesterday this amazing sunset welcomed our beloved Jethro into the heavens. I was 10 years old when my dad bought him home. I am a farm girl and have had many, many dogs but never one as outstanding as Jethro. He taught little Jack everything he knows about steeling balls and hiding under cars where he's unreachable. Haha. The tricks of the trade. Jethro is the reason I adore dogs the way I do and he gifted me so many precious memories; driving around in my dad's Nissan One Toner Bakkie (a truck) with him perched on my shoulders sharing an ice-cream on a hot summers day, heading to the dam for a weekend of fun. For some reason he had this rivalry with the pools broom, he would attach it and bite i,t and growl at it, I still don't know what the broom ever did to him but it was fun to watch him try put it in its place. Ridding on the boat and he jumped off just before we beached and we all got such a fright because we thought he had gone under the boat, he was fine in the end but non the less a heart wrenching moment. Jethro ridding on the knee board with my dad, fearless! There were these three dams on the property next door to us, we used to walk the dogs down there and let me tell ya, as soon as Fro Fro saw the glint of the water he would leave a huge dust cloud behind him, there was no stopping him! We would arrive five minutes later and there he would be happy as a piggie in poo, swimming around, panting like it was no bodies business, he would even dive after stones. I will miss his scruffy old hair, his happy bark but most of all his legend soul! A life well lived! Thank you dad for bringing him home and I am so deeply sorry for your loss, I know how much you loved him. Rest in piece lil' guy.
A few weekends ago we decided to have ourselves a wee date. Gaz had been dying to take me for a prawn braai (BBQ) somewhere picturesque. Perhaps the botanical gardens? I suggested home, we are lucky enough to have a gorgeous view of the Magaliesburg mountains right in our back yard. So we made a picnic and feasted!
I came across this balloontastic engagement shoot on Green Wedding Shoes some time last week or the week before and keep going back to it just to have a good old oogle. I love it that much. Let me just say Joy your brain is a clever one! Photographs by Brittany Esther
I've been researching prefabricated timber frame homes lately. Dreaming the dream. Not only are they a hell of a lot lighter on the pocket, because of the shortened time & labour factor, but also pretty Eco-friendly compared to brick and concrete houses.
I stumbled upon these German beauties! All that glass. A-Frame. Modern interiors. Exposed trusses. Fantastico!!!
I just wish we could get HUF HAUS here in SA or an equivalent. I've come across a few companies that are getting into it but nothing to this standard of design. Maybe by the time we're ready there will be.
P.S. This isn't their only model, just my personal favorite.
