Weekend Snapshots (Sep 8-9)

Hello! I feel like returning to my roots a little with some posts, and sharing more about my everyday life. I have lots of fun with my other posts talking about food, DIY, makeup or what have you, but I feel like I’m running out of creative juice for those kind of posts. So, let’s talk about what happened over the weekend! After all, this blog is about my life.

Before I keep going, thank you so much for all the well wishes from my last post! We’re so excited about this pregnancy, and we love being able to go on this journey. I can’t even imagine what life will be like in a year, or even 6 months from now!

On to the post.



I had last Friday off because we had our 12 week ultrasound. I love being able to see baby during these! When the technician first took a look, we saw our little baby doing a headstand. They were literally upside down just hanging out. As the appointment went on though, they flipped around and started laying down instead. We even saw their little legs and arms! It was very exciting. Afterwards, I shared the photo all over my social media. Now that I’m 12 weeks along, we’re happy to let everyone know that we’re expecting.

New Cookbooks

recipe books

I’d been eyeing up these cool cookbooks from Kmart for a while. They’re each only $5 and each come packed with so many recipes! We grabbed 5 of them since they were cheap, and have already tried a few of them. They’re really good! We tried Pumpkin Soup with Lentils, Rice Pudding, Burrito Bowl, and we’re eyeing up moreΒ  to do.

Walking Around

Rory’s sisters were down in town for the day on Saturday, so we had lunch together. Afterwards, we were walking around town for a while checking out shops. I normally am fine with walking around for a few hours, I’ll get a bit tired but nothing too major. Except, I haven’t done this much walking since being pregnant. I got wiped out pretty early. Once we got back home, I crashed and had a two hour nap. #pregnantlife

Spiderman Game

So this last bit is random, but I have been having so much fun with this game! I was a big fan of the Spiderman 2 game on PS2 cause it was so silly and fun. This new Spiderman game reminds me so much of it and I’ve already spent way too many hours on it. It’s all I want to do.

That’s it for my weekend! I wanted to do some house cleaning, but I ended up playing games for hours instead. What did you guys do?
