What's New With You - September Recap

Time for another What's New With You link up with Gretch & I! No real rules, all we ask is that you link back to us somewhere in your post - easy peasy. I'll be doing another monthly recap, since that's how I roll. So let's get to September!

What's New With You

The month started off with my trip to see my mum and her/my friend in LA & Vegas. I haven't done my ridiculously long recap yet, but I'll get there. It was a really good time, lots of eating and drinking, obscene amounts of shopping and my first trip to an American beach.


The highlight of the trip/month/my life was meeting the backstreet boys (or insert whatever boy-band you were enamored with) of my youth - Human Nature. They have a show in Vegas where they sing motown type music, and it was very good, but I do wish they played my favourite song from when I was 10 years old. I asked them 'do you all ever play Wishes or anything?' and they all went 'whoa, you're from way back' like thanks for making me feel old, guys. But seriously, they put on a good show, though they wear more makeup than me.


Needless to say, when I got home (a day late, yay) I was knackered and didn't do much else for rest of the month. After last month with the eerily similar workout pictures I didn't really take any this month. So, cat snaps instead:


There's no denying it, I live an exciting life. 

If you'd like to link up with us, please do so below!




So what's new with you?

  3. Baha the number of cat snaps you have every month cracks me up. And I'm excited to hear all about your trip! So I hope you post soon! I never know if I should post my wedding pics from weddings we go to. Since we just wear the same outfit so they all look exactly the same.

  6. Looking forward to hearing about Vegas! Sounds like my kind of holiday. Loving the cat snaps as ever. And holy moly those men are wearing a lot of makeup! We've been quiet(er) this month after our big trip, and it's been amazing. I'm definitely not ready for October yet but it seems to have arrived anyway, so we'll see how that goes.

  10. I am so excited for your full trip recap!! It looked like you all had an amazing time. And I'm kind of shocked it was your first time at an American beach what with the cruises and travel you've done. It was nice to have you on the West Coast while it lasted! :)

  11. At first I thought you meant that you met BSB and was about to be jealous (well I was more of an Nsync girl but I still love me some BSB!). Still cool you got to meet your favorite band!

  12. i cant wait to hear about your trip with your momma! and i cannot believe that was your first US beach. KY is too landlocked! i don't blame you for mellowing out the rest of the month. that was a heck of a trip!

  14. I read the first few words of your boy band experience and glanced at the photo and was like, 'Wait, that's not the backstreet boys.....' Hahaha. I just needed to keep reading. Ha! All that food and those bags- the west coast was good to you! :) Haha!

  15. I love that you said you haven't done your giant recap yet because I just realized like two weeks ago I never recapped our huge week in TN with our teens from church! Lol! I should get on that, now that its like, OCTOBER! Ha! I love all your cat pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Can't wait to hear more about VEGAS (and yay also for my home state, CA!)

  21. So many awesome pictures from last month!! I love that you got to meet your boy band and LOL that they had a lot of makeup on you could see!

  22. The cats are the perfect ending to any post. Can we talked about that deliciousness in your first collage? Whoa, that looks good! Can't wait to hear more about your trip!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm cracking up at all your cat photos! You are too funny. Glad you got to meet your boy band dream. ha!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Your cats are so much better at taking pics than mine! I've never heard of Human Nature. Were they popular in the US or are they in Vegas to appeal to tourists? Now I have to go look them up.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Santa Monica beach! That's definitely an iconic beach to visit. Venice Beach has the best people watching and muscle beach too. :) Glad you had a wonderful time in Las Vegas and LA. My cat pictures is ALL of them. Okay, I really like the onc with the cat (sorry, I can't remember his name!) holding your hand.

  26. I was so jealous of all your vacation snaps! I miss Vegas soooo much

    Still love all the cat pics!!

  28. Your trip sounds so fun! Can't wait to hear more about it! You make me want to go back to Vegas (though I pretty much always want to do that! Haha.)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your trip to LA & Vegas sounds so fun and what a perfect way to get some quality time in with your mom and friends - shopping, eating and exploring together couldn't be more fun and I can't believe you just made it to the beach! That means you'll have to visit Florida at some point to see the beautiful beaches!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Can't wait to hear more about your Vegas trip! I can't believe that was your first time to an American beach?! Crazy! At first, when I was reading this, I thought you meant you actually meant The Backstreet Boys, and I was like whoa, that is NOT the Backstreet Boys, or they have done some serious aging hahaha! ;)

    And sorry about adding my link twice, I was having serious internet issues this morning and thought I could delete the first link I added which takes you to a wonky looking version of my post. Feel free to delete it! :)

  31. Oh my gosh you DO have an exciting life! All that delicious food you were snapping on the trip with your mom are things dreams are made of. Wow! So good.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oooooh, I missed the fact that you met Human Nature. Of course, I didn't know about them until I moved here, but I'm quite happy that they've had such success in Vegas.

    Love the kitties. Of course.

    ReplyDelete
  33. All of your kitties are so beautiful. I always enjoy the pictures of them.
    Can't wait for the recap of your trip!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your trip looked like so much fun, I'm excited for the in-depth recap (and shopping post?!)-- looove that you got to meet Human Nature! Before I saw the picture I thought you met the BSB and was so excited, so I totally get your excitement getting to meet your favorite boyband from when you were younger- so cool! LOL at the cat picture in the bottom left corner! They are the all the cutest!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You always post the cutest cat pics!

    ReplyDelete
  36. All the cat pictures make me smile and I'm so not a cat person. Like at all. But yours are just so cute. That is so awesome you got to meet your favorite boy band from when you were a kid. I cannot wait to hear more about your trip to Vegas!

    ReplyDelete

  40. Happy you had so much fun with your momma. Your first American beach! Woo! Can't wait to hear even more about your trip!
    Hahahah, the band should have thanked you for being such a long-time fan!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ah! So fun you got to meet your fav boyband! That's awesome! And hooray for visiting your first American beach! What did you think??

    ReplyDelete
  42. Haha, I've met the Human Nature boys and you are SO right. They wear more makeup than a year 12 class at their formal ;)

    And girl, your cats totally need their own website. Your photos are always the best, haha!

  43. Ain't nothing wrong with catsnaps!

    Glad you got in a vacation and a visit from home at the same time!

    ReplyDelete
  44. So fun that you got to meet that band! And that's awesome that you had such a fun visit with your mom and friend!

    ReplyDelete
  45. So glad you had a fun time in Vegas with your mom! And I don't think I've heard of that band but I love Motown tunes. I'm always bummed when bands don't play my favorite song (like when Heart didn't play "All I Wanna Do"...I digress), but on the bright side at least you were able to see them!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Can't wait to see more of your trip recap! Congrats on meeting your backstreet boys! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. We ALMOST saw that show when we were in Vegas, and now I'm mad that we didn't! I love that you got to meet them, though - how fun for you!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love hearing about what you've been up to, but I have to admit, my favorite part is the abundance of cat pics. lol! I'm allergic so I feel like i'm a cat owner through you! haha

    ReplyDelete
  49. I can't wait to hear all about your trip with your mom! From all snaps it looked like you had the best time, and ate some great food! That's awesome that you got to meet a band that you loved growing up! I think that I would freak if I ever met anybody from NSYNC!

    ReplyDelete
  50. You're doing much better than me.... I've never been to Vegas or LA, either one! Your cats are more photogenic than I am.... that makes me both jealous and laugh hysterically, all at the same time!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I can't wait to hear about your trip with you mom! I still want to write my Vegas recap too! And I always love the cat pictures . . . we have a neighborhood cat that keeps dropping by to annoy the dogs and entertain the kids. He's so stinking cute . . . he lets the kids play with him and will swat sticks and things for them - they are fascinated!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Loved seeing all your vacation snaps! And of course, the cat snaps too! Lol.

  53. I can't believe that was the first time you've been to one of our beaches! Although, I prefer the beaches of Florida - better sand - what did you think?! And the "whoa you're from way back!" comment cracked me up!
