Some people in life just bitch. They complain and are unhappy individuals. I have constantly told myself today not to let them in my head space. Allowing them in my head space and they will get the best of me. I shouldn't be focusing on the little things that don't even matter but yet we always find our selves up set in life when something little doesn't go right.

So many things are going right in my life my have a fiancé that loves , a dog that cuddles me and a family to support me. That's all I need on this journey.

So today I have decided I am making my wedding dress. When is my wedding oh only in about ten months. But hope for the best and if you tell yourself you can get it done you will. As always staying on budget I didn't want to spend a lot on a dress. I have achieved this all more I ran from op shop to op shop looking for a wedding dress I would be able to tear apart and re create. I have found just that and it only cost me thirteen dollars. They don't match but they don't need to I will piece together just what I want I have already completed some other bits && bobs so I know the direction I am going in. Everything takes time on this journey.

Today...

Today has been a full on day. I have worked all day && yet even though I should be tired I am wide awake. There are so many things my mind is telling me to do && still I don't know where to start. My tasks are simple tasks but I'm allowing myself to get overwhelmed. I think the main reason I am truly overwhelmed is the time difference, trying to plan a wedding half way across the world is a challenge. I know I can ask for help planning but again not knowing where to start in this task, I just don't know what to do.

I never realize how hard it is to allow your self to open up and be vulnerable. As easy as it sounds to is hard to talk to a computer screen knowing someone will look at this and know half the story. Maybe I am scared of judgement but I know if I was truly concerned about judgement I wouldn't be here now. I know if I let the fear of peoples options affect me I can only go as far as they doubt me. It is important that I stay focus on this journey. Even when I feel like I have nothing to type at all. I want this to inspire me to be more then what I am now.

Today I have prepared a creamy veggie soup that is affordable and will feed two for two different meals. As always my Fiancé and I have a budget of one hundred and fifty dollars a week for groceries.


For this quick and easy meal you will need:

2 Heads of Broccoli

1 Head of Cauliflower

1 Leak

Veggie Instant stock

Chicken Instant stock

1 Light thickening cream

Parmesan cheese

Coriander


Boil water in large pot. Start will chopping up the broccoli, cauliflower && leak boil for twenty mins on high. Strain the water from the veggies and pour the veggies back into the pot. Pour in the light thicking cream. Use a puree blender and blend what is in the pot. Add in two table spoons of Chicken instant stock and 2 table spoons of Veggie instant stock. Continue to blend it all together. Once the mix is smooth add in parmesan cheese to you own liking. Add salt and pepper with a sprinkle of coriander before serving.


I always serve with a nice warm baguette. Make sure when plating the soup it is put into a Microwave or Oven Safe container for easy clean up and heating.

First world problems again, my neighbor has been jamming to music from 10pm to 1am for the past two weeks. Because my mind wonders at night have been so blessed to hear this consistent thumping. It's amazing that I will stay up later just to wait for the text back from my mother. We all have that person we can complain to they know we are being petty but not over something that serious. As much as the thumping is annoying things could be worst. I think we don't stop and take a step back and look at our environment around us.

Example the house with the thumping music has a hole in the back of the house, the structure is poor, and there is never a car parked in the drive. My house I am privileged to turn on the heater, in a safe secure structure. Not only do I live in this beautiful home but also have made enough money to purchase a car to get me from A to B. I know things could be worst on this journey.

Some days I find myself confused. When being confused I make myself distance. I haven't always been introverted, instead of expressing and explaining to someone how I feel && waiting for the let down when I know they just don't fully understand, I hold it all in. I like to keep busy so my mind stays focus. But when I can't complete a task I then fall back into this vicious cycle of self doubt. As humans I know we all have our good && bad days. I am grateful to have met my Fiancé who reminds me every night that I am loved not only for my good days but also he forgives me for my bad days.

I was raised with a family who fully supported throughout my childhood and my adult years. I have been blessed with having strong faith with god growing up. But yet I still find myself confused on this journey.

Most weeks I love to get away with at least one slow cooked meal a week. My Fiancé && I like to keep our budget at the grocery store to 150 dollars a week. First we focus on what meats are on sale then base all out meals and side accordingly. This week I was able to find MASSIVE turkey legs on sale. While grocery shopping we like to also focus on fresh ingredients. I have noticed by using less ingredients in a meal it helps us stay on budget && eat healthier.


Today my Fiancé is working till five && I start at five. We will miss each other for dinner but we will still both be feed. Quick and easy with little clean up.

INGREDIENTS:

Turkey legs

Bbq sauce

Brown sugar

Garlic granules

Homemade beer

Salt and Pepper


**Easy Instructions**

Put the Turkey Legs in the Slow Roaster

Pour in half of the homemade beer

Pour our BBQ sauce

Add brown sugar && salt/pepper && garlic granules

Cook on Low heat all day. I have put my in the slow cooker at 10:00am and will eat it at 5:00pm or later. I will also add a side of steamed broccolini which will take maybe ten mins.
