Showered with love

This baby girl of mine is one loved little lady I'm telling her now.
My mum, sisters and good friend planned the sweetest shower for us both the other weekend and I can't thank them enough. It was so lovely and I only wish I could have been just that little bit more present as baby girl had A: kept me up all night with contractions and B: wanting to join the party so it seems with aggressive flips, punches and rotations in my belly ALL afternoon. The days of my sweet little baby pokes are over.

I want to thank all the ladies who came and joined in the fun, chocolate poo diapers and all :D and again thank you for all the lovely gifts you guys are too much. xox

 I wonder what they're gossiping about...

Happy Hen (Part 2 Mel's Hen's)

A few weeks ago (actually last year) I posted the bootylicious end of my sisters hen's party {see here} and only just realised that I hadn't shared the rest that have been sitting on my desktop here for ages. Not that anyone but me and my sisters would be interested in but I like having all these moments saved on the blog so I can revisit them months/years down the track.... And also because I'm terrible at saving photos in one place and can never find them when I want them. Something I hope to improve on with the arrival of baby girl! 

I loved the Day of the Dead theme it was very very Mel and was also pretty impressed with my handmade Mexican papel picado... Yep I hand cut + tapped each and everyone of those bright little suckers to make god knows how many meters of bunting but they worked well and was worth the stiff back. I found the FREE TEMPLATE here.

Mel I hope you had as much fun as we did, we love you.

I was introduced to this magnificence (is that a word? it is now) a little while back that I have just re-lived while trolling through all my photos. HELADOS JAUJA is the BEST ice-cream I have eaten in Melbourne... no Australia.

Every time I eat ice-cream here my comment is ALWAYS without fail like some food snob is - "not as good as the ones in Argentina." I don't think I have ever eaten as much ice-cream as I did when I lived in Buenos Aires. I remember walking down to Rita's ice-cream shop with my little 2 year old next door neighbour every afternoon after work in the summer for a scoop, how I wasn't the size of a blimp I don't know...

Don't get me wrong there are a few Gelato places that I frequent every now and then but nothing compares to ice-cream from the old country and these guys have nailed it.
A finance lawyer turned ice-cream apprentice in the Argentinean Patagonia has brought to Melbourne an amazing array of fresh and natural flavours that I am willing to drive to the other side of town for dessert. Speaking of I think we are due to head back there for round two ASAP and the best thing is they have take home packs which I will be stocking the freezer up on when these 40+ degree days ease up.

From me and my taste buds and baby I just want to say THANK YOU JAUJA!

And you can't not take some Alfajores for the car ride home.... Delish!
