.:. He likes it so he put a ring on it .:.

.:. Hola .:.

Yes, shock horror, I'm engaged! Moof and I have been planning to get married for a couple of years now so alas, I don't have a cheesy 'diamond hidden in my dessert' story to regale you with. We are more pragmatic than romantic by nature!  Nonetheless, we have finally made it official so I thought I'd share a picture of my lovely, shiny ring with you. I chose the ring myself and Moof lovingly presented it to me over tapas and red wine. We are getting married on 17 December and I'm currently trying not to lose my shitakke organising the whole thing. I think that my eyeballs might burst into flames if I so much as catch a whiff of another wedding blog. I suspect I should give them a rest for a couple of weeks, yes? 

On a serious note though I am very happy and super duper exciting to be marrying Moof and I can't wait to have a South American surname :)

P.S- My eyebrows look like fat caterpillars in the above photo. Ha!

P.S.S- Did anyone get the 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' reference? I'm currently reading it and if you haven't already you should totz read it.

.:. Making New Friends .:.


One of the great things about the new house Moof and I are renting is that we have made friends with the next door neighbours. More specifically, we have been befriended by a very sweet little 7 year old who loves to come to chat about her day at school and to show us her cartwheel skills on the front lawn. Just recently she knocked on our door and gave us the most lovely little present... 

...a brightly coloured bunch of hand-picked flowers...
... in a handmade vase adorned with lots of pink stickers!

As a way of showing our gratitude for this little unexpected gift, I invited our little friend over on a sunny Saturday afternoon to bake some cupcakes... 

...we had oodles of fun with piping bags and colourful icing...
...and of course, lots and lots of sprinkles!!

We had such a great day we even ended up digging out my old lego blocks...yep and I was totally exhausted by the end of the day. How about you? Do you have friendly neighbours? Ever make baked goods with them? Do tell!
