Hooray for Friday!
I am standing here (standing desk) drinking some good coffee, eating some of my delicious birthday cake and feeling really lucky to have had such a wonderful birthday yesterday.
I started with CrossFit, met David for lunch, chatted to my parents on skype, met David after work for gelato and came home for homemade pizza and cake! It was exactly how birthdays are meant to be spent, with the people you love and good food. I even got a good dose of the Australian sunshine!
So as you can imagine, this weeks ‘Friday Favourites’ are going to focus mostly on bits and bobs from yesterday…. aaaaaand I just went back for some more cake…
Favourite… Moment – Speaking to my parents
Every week I catch up with my Mum on Skype and we chatted away for about 10 mins before she moved the screen to show my Dad! He had popped home after having his routine bloods taken before heading off to work. He could only stop to say a quick hello but it made my day to see his smiley face on my birthday!
Favourite… Feeling – Having such a wonderful husband!
David really made my day yesterday. It’s tough when you live somewhere new and don’t know many people, especially on days like your birthday. But he met me for a Vietnamese lunch, surprised me with the most amazing cake and took me for gelato as the sun set over the swan river… so much love.
Favourite… Purchase – 2kg medjool dates
As soon as I saw these boxes in our local supermarket I knew I had to get one. We go through dates like they are going out of fashion in this house (awesome post workout) so a bulk discount is a winner in my book. I wonder how long they will last…
Favourite… Food/Drink – My birthday cake!
Isn’t it gorgeous!? A bespoke ‘ferrero raw’cer’ raw cake from Cocoa Bare topped with handmade chocolates (she only uses dark Lindt chocolate) fruit and flowers. I adore hazelnuts so after chatting with the creator she and David decided to go with that as a theme. Couldn’t of asked for anything more perfect!
Favourite… Link – The Ramones sing Happy Birthday to Mr Burns on The Simpsons
Every birthday David plays me this video on You Tube – cracks me up every time!
Favourite… Workout – Birthday WOD
It included rowing and farmers carries so I was one happy bunny. Even if I did have to do my age in calories on the airdyne bike afterwards! #diditwithasmile
Weekend Plans – Saturday – Farmers market, CrossFit mobility session, lunch out and weekly shop. Sunday – Beach cafe for breakfast and the newspapers and then chill chill chill!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend folks!
