Ok, so this lookpost would have been about an outfit I was going to wear to a birthday party but one sick baba later and we stayed in… and this outfit will now become a Friday work outfit!

I must admit that I really didnt mind staying in, these winter night have got us snuggling under the covers before 8pm! I was really looking forward to dressing up though but i guess I will have to rock it at the office this week instead!

The Birds and the Bees

We had the opportunity of literally showing Alyssa the birds and bees this weekend when we took a Sunday drive around the peninsula. It got me thinking though…. we will actually have to give her that talk one day! I know how extremely awkward that conversation was with my Mom and I hope that when we chat to Alyssa it won’t be half as intense. Yes WE….. My hubby and I both brought her into this world so we both have to cross that bridge together.

Alyssa and I were like WHATEVER this weekend, enjoying the li’l bit of sunshine Cape Town had to offer.

I found both our “Whatever” jerseys at Mr Price – i just had to grab them when I saw them. As far as i know, the saying “Whatever” was made popular by the 90’s movie Clueless. Anyone who knew me back then would know that i was totally obsessed with the movie…. so obsessed that i would watch it every single day as soon as I arrived home from school while pretending to do my homework. I memorised almost every line of the movie and I used “Whatever”, “as If” or “thats like so five years ago” in almost every sentance. (I think i may still use these phrases…. perhaps not that often now)
