Week 18 Day 2 - Halfway through, birthdays weekend!

I can't believe how fast time flew. I am now officially 4 1/2 months pregnant, which meant I am halfway through my pregnancy. Saw a lot of friends this weekend who hasn't seen me since our baby announcement, so everyone is mentioning how quick my tummy is growing!

We had a really busy weekend. Started of with neighbours who popped in on Friday evening. Hubby then opened a bottle of whiskey while I enjoyed my glass of water. We chatted and quickly we noticed that the bottle of whiskey was done! Neighbour told us they had a fire burning still at their braai area and we must go and have braai dinner with them. We then walked to their house and while Ian and neighbour enjoyed more whiskey, me and his wife chatted and chilled.

We girls eventually had to monitor the braai as they were too busy discussing about model cars, music and drums. It ended up with us leaving their house after midnight!

Next morning I had to wake up early to go to my oral hygienist. As it is known that dental health is important during pregnancy, I try to make an appointment to have my teeth cleaned every 3-4 months as my gums are usually not that healthy.

Hubby wasn't feeling too nice still after a heavy night so I joined him for a nap in the afternoon. Then we got up to a friend's Pirate costume party. It is his 40th, and his girlfriend had arranged this surprise party. I must say,  a lot of hardwork to prepare this party and the result was awesome!

Sharkbait, Hoo ha ha!

We were only there for about 2 hours +, and then we left the party to be at another friend's birthday. We then spend time chatting and me drinking Rooibos tea the whole night. We eventually left at after midnight again.

Next morning I had to get up early to prepare food to go to in-laws. They always come over with food so I told them I will make the food this time. I then prepared spaghetti with herbs, mushrooms and shredded chicken. We also had a platter of fruits that I mixed with strawberry yoghurt. Easy and tasty. While I made the food, Ian went for a cycle in the hiking trail closeby our house. I sent him for last minute grocery run to buy the yoghurt and spaghetti :)

We left the house close to noon, and spent the entire afternoon at his parents while watching the Wimbledon finals between Murray and Djokovic.
Just before end of the match, we had to leave now to another friend's birthday, Adrian. He is not having a party but we just wanted to spend time with him. We They went for wine tasting at a nearby estate in Stellenbosch. We joined them at their last hop at Peter Falke wine estate, and while they were doing a tasting, I again just rest and ate the free nuts provided. We were there for less than an hour, then went to Adrian's new house to sit and chat. We then left at around 9:30pm.

By the time we got home, I was exhausted. From this whole weekend of birthdays. Luckily I am now in my second trimester because I definitely won't be able to do this in my first! I got tired very easily then.
However, I told Ian next week we are going to do nothing! Looking forward to next weekend and oh no, it's only Monday today .....
