Bridesmaids and Blooms...

I can't believe my last post was February!  My neglected little happy space, but all is well in the world.  I am back working full time and in a new role so that has been challenging, exciting, scary, fulfilling... The little lady is 7 and a bit months now and is just the most incredible little ball of fun and giggles.   A lot to look forward to over the next few months including being home for 2 weddings (I just hope we survive the flight with the little bub as the one in April was a bit of a nightmare!).   

The November wedding is for one of my oldest friends and I am lucky enough to be one of the bridesmaids - I can't wait!   The lovely bride and I were chatting the other day about bridesmaid dresses and we were looking up the current JCrew fall/holiday lookbook - it is just SO pretty!  I think it is partly because of all those amazing blooms in the background.... Peonies + Rununculus = favourites.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Home made granola - our very own crunchy monkey

When we were in Phuket last month, the Mr found some really tasty locally made granola by Crunchy Monkey at the supermarket.   We liked it so much we bought a few bags home with us.  The little Miss is a big fan and is always asking to eat 'crunchy monkey' (even when it isn't breakfast time!).

Unfortunately our stocks are running low and good quality granola (that is not just toasted oats) is so expensive!  So to keep me and the little girl busy on the weekend and to try and combat the jetlag I was suffering, I decided to try and make our own.  It was way easier than I expected and is super yum.  It was also a fun and easy way to get the little Miss involved in cooking.

I tried a simple recipe but I think I will try other variations next time.  I turned to trusty google and this one was the first result after searching 'home made granola' so I adapted it and gave it a go...
