I feel like I haven't updated much about life on here at all. In fact I don't feel like I have done a good blog post in a while. So I thought I would do a little update on things that have been happening around my corner of the internet.
I had a lovely Valentines day. We celebrated it the 15th because plonker over here had to do night shifts. Simon really went to town and cooked me Paprika Chicken, decorated the table, got me beautiful flowers, a lovely card and tickets to see Jersey Boys. I cannot wait! He said my face was priceless. I got him a frame and decorated it with buttons that are his favourite colour and tickets to see star wars 3D at the IMAX in London. Now HIS face was priceless!
In 1 month and 2 days I head off to CALIFORNIA and VEGAS! I am so excited for this trip. It will be 11 days of fun, madness, picture taking and hopefully good weather. Does anyone know what the weather is like in California and Vegas end of March time?! No rain please.
Work is as busy as ever. I have reached a little defunct with it though. I feel like I have outgrown it and want to try something else. Unfortunately I am in contract until December so will have to stick it out until then. I love the surgery side still but I am just getting a little weary of the routine. I'd like to try something new!
Is it mean of me to say I am not surprised Whitney Houston has died? A great voice has left this Earth too soon though.
Simon and I went and saw The Muppets! I LOVED every second of it. I grew up with the Muppets and it totally took me back to my childhood. Some reviews have said the singing is a little fake. Hello they're puppets?!?! They're fake too! (don't tell my 5 year old self that though!). Also, another film that's a must see is War Horse. I saw it last month and it was a beautiful film!
He's clearly found a new girlfriend here....
I have gotten really into cooking. Simon made it a new years resolution to cook something new every week and he has stuck to his guns and done it. However, I help it out a fair bit and I have to say I have really really enjoyed it. You can make so many meals in like 15 minutes?!?! That may be funny to some people but cooking has always seemed like slavery to me haha! I think we need to work on presentation but we have cooked Beef in Black Bean Sauce, Spag Bol, Sweet and Sour Pork, Steak Fajitas and next week I am doing Thai Chicken....way better than eating out!
Beef in Black Bean Sauce & Noodles.
It's baby central again in my world. My sister is due in 8 weeks. 8 WEEKS! It's gone by so fast and her baby shower is in 2 weeks. I can't wait to meet my little niece/nephew. My uni friend Nicki gave birth to little Paige yesterday morning. My college friend Sam is due in July with her first baby and my very close friend Sacha is expecting her second baby due in September!!!
She had little Kaleb last July and they decided they wanted their kids close together in age. I'm so happy for them!!! They had been trying for Kaleb for 2 years and for her to fall pregnant so easily this time is a blessing!!!! I'm rooting for a girl this time haha.
Otherwise that's my round up in Becca world. Have a good weekend everyone and don't forget pancake day is next Tuesday!
