I woke up a bit later on Saturday morning feeling pretty darn good for the amount of jagermeister and vodka jelly shots I had. I only drink once every few months - if that but I have noticed since I made dramatic changes to my health and fitness I don't get hangovers anymore... does anyone else get this benefit?
Saturday morning - the crew (majority hungover - lol) battled some torrential rain to the suit store for the final fittings before the big day, which is March 9th for anyone wondering. Don't the boys look soo cute!
The rain did NOT let up. An ex-cyclone had made it over the coast up north and was giving everybody hell in our state. Sunday we started hearing news of locations around the state flooding and the crew decided to pack up and make their way the few hours home before the roads flooded... Lucky they did.
The news started bringing us information of this, above is a very scary picture of Bundaberg. This is actually the home town where I lived for the first 21 years of my life. Many places that are so familiar to me were completely underwater - my school, the places I worked and many of the roads I drove day after day. It was completely surreal to see these pictures flooding Facebook and the news. Luckily Josh's parents and my parents live just out of the affected areas of flooding and their only problem at this time is that they are isolated at their homes. A lot of my old school friends were not as lucky and had to be evacuated.
Luckily news today states that the floods are slowly receding (thank goodness!), cleanup has begun and Josh is part of an emergency crew that is travelling the five hours up to Bundaberg to begin restoring power to many of the affected homes. As you can imagine this brought my weekend to a very sobering halt.
I hope you guys don't mind me sharing this with you... I know it is a bit of a downer but I really want to try to make this blog personal and share things that are significant to me. Thanks for reading anyway.
Now let's get onto onto my eats, these are actually from Monday (we had a public holiday so YAY for no work and for natural light at home).
Breakfast - The boy made me the most delicious cappuccino and I whipped up a batch of Heather's blueberry cobbler protein pancakes which were amazing!
We had a very late lunch salad. Iceberg lettuce, carrot, tomato, radish, beetroot, grilled chicken and crumbled goats cheese. This was actually my first time trying goats cheese and it was a really delicious alternative to the feta I generally stick too.
Josh wanted a 'takeaway' style dinner so we had sweet potato fries and chicken burgers which was made up of melted cheese, tomato, lettuce, mayo and a grilled chicken patty on turkish bread. This beats Maccas anyday!
And that's about it! Happy WIAW guys and go visit Jenn if you want to join in!
