Favorite Highlight of the Month:
My Dreams Came True!
The biggest thing that happened throughout January was definitely getting my second novel in my hands!
I even got the ISBN bar code!
I couldn't be more thrilled!
There's still a fair bit of polishing the book needs to go through before I can start going further with it - but then, my friends, it will be available for everyone to enjoy!
Favorite Goal of the Month:
I started taking USN supplements to help me get fit and toned...... it didn't last long.
I now have a box filled with protein shakes, capsules and tablets that I'm not going to use.
Before you think I flaked - let me explain...
Did you know America refuses to stock USN??? They claim that what USN says it can do, it can't.
God knows if that is true - I'm just repeating something that I was told....
The images they show you of the 12-week results do seem seriously far-fetched anyway.
So now... instead, I am reducing my alcohol intake and attempting to eat more healthily.
I attended two introductory crossfit class (it scared the shit out of me! I can barely hobble around right now and my left arm is swollen up!) and I plan on becoming properly dedicated to my morning jogs... once my muscles recover from Crossfit that is!
I already feel so much better.
I'll have that firm, hot bod by the time I jet off to Indonesia!
Mark my words!
Favorite Socials of the Month:
Farewells... a lot of them :(
After our good friend Ashley left, it was down to just Louis, Lucien and me for the month of January... we had lots of great times together throughout the month.
But then it was time to say goodbye to Louis too...
Everyone seems to be heading off onto bigger and better things this year.
Favorite Auntie Moments of the Month:
Jenson is Walking!
My little man has started to toddle around on his own two feet!
It is TOO cute to watch.
Nothing beats it when he runs over to you and wraps his arms around you. Nothing.
I am and always will be the proudest Auntie in the world.
Favorite 'Jam' Moments of the Month:
We took a little road-trip...
It was SO good to get away from Knysna for a weekend... even though that's all it was. A meager 3 nights away really helped to refresh us after spending countless months in this cramped little town we call home.
We spent our 4 month anniversary at a theme park going on roller-coasters and water rides that almost made me shit myself I was so scared!
(I think the Asian woman might actually have done....)
Favorite Sentimental Moment of the Month:
A Reunion With Ashley
Of course, while we were road-tripping I begged Sam to let me see my Ashley friend since we were so close by to him.
It was so lovely to see him again so soon after him move.
I also got to see one of my very good girlfriends, Rene!
So many of my friends live in Cape Town that it was impossible to see them all. But I did manage to see these two beautiful people at least!!
Favorite Restaurant of the Month (or EVER!):
Eastern Food Bazaar
I apologize in advance for all of the photographs below...
But I found heaven in Cape Town City Bowl. Eastern Food Bazaar.. Wow!!! It is so incredible, it feels like you have just stepped into a little India with all of the spices and crowds, Indian music and gorgeous decor... and it was SO cheap!!!!
You could choose any sort of Eastern food you wanted and pile on the food on your plate, guaranteeing that it will be one of the cheapest meals of your life!
I was in literal heaven.
And that pretty much wraps up my January of 2015!
Hope you all had an amazing one too.
Did you get up to anything exciting???
