Today I feel like doing a rambling update kind of post!
This year, for the first time, we took part in the Santa Shoebox Project. It's an awesome charity project for underprivileged kids - I pledged two boxes, and Mia had lots of fun helping me decorate, shop, and pack the boxes! We dropped them off on Friday. Wish we could see little Jane and little Faith's faces when they open their boxes filled with goodies!
We've been having quite a few rainy days lately - and then it's so nice to just snuggle indoors and watch movies and play inside, however, sometimes it's necessary to get out a bit or go to the shops - Mia liked wearing her rain jacket and splashing in puddles of water!
Today I'm 14 weeks pregnant. Officially into the second trimester! Nausea is feeling a lot better, still sometimes, but not as bad as it had been. Still very tired though. *yawn* Two weeks til our next scan, can't wait to find out if Mia's going to get a baby sister or a baby brother. I sorted out my cupboard, packing away all the clothes that I won't fit into until after pregnancy, and made space for maternity clothes. Need to still shop for a nice pair of maternity shorts for holiday time, a maternity cozzie, and a dress for my brother's wedding coming up in January!
Pregnancy cravings I've had: last week I was planning on making spaghetti bolognaise for supper, and just got an overwhelming urge for some broccoli and cauliflower veggies to go with it - so that's exactly what I did, and loved it! Last night I wanted fish, lentils and spinach, so that's exactly what I did, and it was so yum! Two weeks ago we went to a restaurant for dinner, and I wanted steak and spinach - it was delicious! Yes, my body seems to be asking for lots of extra iron...
I love that I get to spend so much time each day with precious Mia. She's growing so fast - every day I am amazed. We have lots of fun together, I love our special bond.
Mia and I have been gallivanting lately. Last week we went for a fun playdate to friends in Joburg, and had a fun morning there. Yesterday we went to Joburg again, and we were spoilt with a delicious pasta lunch that a friend made for us. And the gallivanting doesn't end there! Tomorrow Mia and I are off to Pietersburg to visit my folks for a few days. Yay!
Business has been quiet... Hoping it picks up again during November, I need Xmas cash!!
I made a yummy broccoli and bacon salad this weekend, will share the recipe soon.
I think this is enough rambling for now! ;-)
