Hi and Bye

I've been doing plenty, just not keeping you up to date here! 

Sock monkey I made Toby
The BEST Proscuitto egg cups
The husband and I started doing a Whole30 Challenge, which we are nearly 3 weeks into - feeling fantastic, but still want naughty food, like bread!

Incase you don't know what this is, its clean eating for 30days and after the 30 days it helps you maintain a healthy food lifestyle.

It was uber difficult to enjoy in the beginning, but now with my energy levels up and no fatigue I love it - best decision I've made to do with my eating habits and one that will change how I eat forever. Although I maaaaay have a chocolate stash ready to eat when we finish...shhh!

Sooooo I'm thinking of leaving my blog, I just don't seem to have time now that I'm back at work. And any free time I have is either spent with my family, sewing or, more than likely, cleaning my house.

I may pop back every now and then, but after 3 years of posting I think I earned a break.

If you want to keep up with what I'm doing, please check me out on Instagram (@wasabi_peanut) as I am on there daily.


Till next time lovelies

DIY Boys Pants

I'm still here, t's just been crazy with working and busy weekends.

On free moments (that is when the child is sleeping) I spend recycling old clothes into new clothes for Toby, and I made him some pants yesterday which turned out awesome:

Legs are a little tight, so need to add a little stretch panel.

Had Toby's Baptism last week, which was so much fun as we had all the family together with some close friends. Toby got crazy spoiled even though we said no gifts, but hey, guess everyone loves him ^_^

Celebratory cake

Then hubby had to go to Thailand for work this week gone, and it was me and Toby alone, and he decided then was the perfect time for some more teeth.....holy moly that was difficult. Three days of about 3-4 hours sleep really got to me, I think I was a zombie by Thursday.

But hubby is home now and brought with him some cute H&M items for me - yayay! I will show you in another post.

Anyhoodle I'm off to bed to try and re-coup my lost sleep.

G'night all!

Back to the Grind

I started work again 4 days a week,  which is great to be earning an income again.  It does mean I miss seeing my munchkin as often though :(

 photo 20140501_141210_zpsff126bf2.jpg

I will enjoy being back in the city,  very convenient for lunch time shopping haha.

So far have been doing training as there are new systems in place that weren't there when I times *snore*

What I wore today, which are an awesome pair of pants my girlfriend gave me.

Oroton Bag and Cuddles

It was my birthday today, and I got to spend it with my amazing husband and cute little man.

Started with my morning cuddles

Hubby then cooked me breakfast before taking me to the shops to spoil me with a new handbag from Oroton.

I died and went to heaven when I was allowed to purchase this beauty.

Now I tend to buy cheapo handbags that don't last me long and fall apart after a few months. But this one is simply gorgeous, a beautiful soft leather in a classic style.

After coming home I also got a bunch of flowers from my In-Laws ^_^

Now if only I can stop eating easter eggs I can finish off my birthday with a nice meal.....but that isn't going to happen haha.

Happy Easter!

6 Month Old Munchkin

It's happening....Toby is growing up... *cries*

Already 6 months has gone! I barely remember how little he was, and only get that feeling when I see little bubs, and I get all sooky and think how he used to be tiny.

But on the other hand, 6 months...Wooohooo! Sitting around, skooting his butt, laughing at the dogs and smearing as much food on his face as possible (urgh cannot keep this child clean!).

Here's to the next 6 months little dude, but try not to grow up too quickly!

Being Good

So I go back to work in a few weeks, crimeny! But it will be good to be able to socialize with adults again, and not spend my days wiping up spew or doing the sniff test for a poopy bum. This way I'll actually have something else to discuss with the hubby that isn't about Toby's bowel movements.

The routine of work will be great also, being home I tend to graze on food. Which leads me to excercise, or lack thereof :) 

I excersise regularly, walk Toby, do free weights etc... HA! Fooled you, the most exercise I do is walking to the fridge to get munchies, then sitting on the floor with Toby, telling myself I need to do more whilst I inhale the biscuits I shouldn't of bought when at the shops (which I drove to woohoo!).

I know, I know, I have all that free time being home every day, I should totally do some exercise in the 3 hrs of accumulated nap time that Toby has. Pfft, that's my time, which I get to enjoy by cleaning, washing, threatening the dogs with disembowelment if they wake the baby and, oh I don't know, actually peeing on my own.

 photo 1525681_10152086518068214_1827091280_n_zps8235f18d.jpg

That being said, I have been doing a Pilates class for the last few weeks on Saturdays, not that I think one day a week is really beneficial, but it does make me feel better about the bacon and eggs that follows ^_^

Hopefully with a bit more walking during work and better eating, I can start feeling healthier and kick the lack of energy. Because running around after my son (who hasn't even started crawling yet, am going to DIE when that starts) is damn tiring.

If not I got my eye on a pack of Tim tams once lent finishes.

DIY Basic Baby Shorts

Whilst scrounging through my horde of material the other day I found some really cute prints, which led me to this awesome and completely simple shorts tutorial from Peek a Boo pattern shop.

I think it took me an hour all up, and I used a pair of Toby's shorts as a template.

I will definitely be making more, might even modify to have pockets, or a cute bow at the front for my nieces.

And he looks pretty cute in them ^_^
