5 years?! Where has the time gone?
My uploaded photos on this blog are a time capsule that I never get tired of looking through. So here’s well over a 100 pics from the past 5 years of Audpodge.
we ferried past Luna Park, an ultra creepy amusement park that I want to go to.

It’s basically my American life. All that’s missing is Canada Dry Diet Ginger Ale. /classy
“Hey! I love carpal tunnel!”
Get inside of me.
Yum! Joel’s Massaman curry.
Standard Wendsgiving appetizer.
Chicken mash 4eva
Thanks, Santas Turner!
Joel opening his stocking stuffers, Christmas towels and American flag duct tape. Not pictured: Reese trees and brown gravy packets. My stocking had gossip rags and Reese cups because Santa Turner loves me.
Christmas grill day*!
I traded in my ugly sweaters and snow for paper crowns and sundresses.
I got to live the dream with a near $900 trip to Ikea.
So many good happy hours.
And I fell in love harder than I ever thought possible.
I began to conquer my fear of the ocean, thanks to Joel.
Happy New Year!
Such a little guy!

Kangaroo Steaks! Don’t worry–it’s the equivalent of eating deer in the US.
AUSTRALIAN COW. I was really excited to see the animal that gives me steak and dairy.
Everyone got chips on a stick. And to quote the 7 year old with us, “Food is always better when it’s on a stick.”
Punch drunk chicken!
Better Than Olive Garden’s Chicken Scampi (I used a copykat recipe that gave me the most badass way to bread and fry chicken. So much yum.)

Our pillows will never grow up, though.
you vile temptresses. Also, I ate 97% of these cookies over the week because Joel doesn’t like peanut butter desserts. Sucks to be him!
I wore my good sweats for this shoot. #fridaynight
PLANETS HOLY CRAP
yummm. Creaming soda tastes like vanilla + tarot root and looks like cherry ginger ale and is my new favorite.
And then there was demolishing of the cookie cake I made for Joel to celebrate him making his bonus this year. Hooray!
throw back love ❤
Joel is the best schnitzel-er I’ve ever met.
family photo shootin
ice milk tea and our platter of Lor Bak – five-spice pork rolls, prawn cakes and fried tofu. I never knew how good fried tofu could be.
Joel’s Nan always brings articles and clippings to show him. It’s adorable.
the water was perfect, if a little cold. We would have stayed all day if there was a way to not get fried in the sun.
Melt butter and chocolate in a heat proof bowl over simmering water. Or, a double boiler. I don’t have a heat proof bowl, so I improvised.
Raspberry frosting with key lime sprinkles, and chocolate peanut butter oreo noms.
Breakfast of champions
we went Paula Deen on that beast #butterbath
Effing delicious, basically
We shelled out for cable… just for GoT. #worthit
The colours – trust me, I’ve only slightly edited this photo.
We also picked up some wooden salad bowls and turrets.
Good bye, winter friend.
I finally got around to re-hanging our string of Instax pics. Don’t even get me started on that eyesore phone. I’m going to take it down and hang a framed pic over the phone jack.
I was obsessing over spice racks, so our friend Hugh gave us one of his. Hooray! No more clunky spice drawer for us. Next step – new spice jars.
Came home at 9:30PM after a double shift to home made curry and fried roti bread – Joel is a keeper.
Grilled veg, sauces, and wine – treasures
Master Chefs, Master Pals
so much food
Thank god for slightly less than insanely hot temps
Also, I finally got to use my gravy cow
There was an entire wall of jarred Nope
I’ve spent most of my weekend hanging out here, because I am living life to its fullest
I want to sleep on these Heaven pillows
A stranger offered to take our photo. And she didn’t steal my camera. It was nice.
Big Joel had a big birthday! We celebrated with a day of fat, fat eating, a tiny cake, and a night at the pub. We also ate delicious meat at East Side Grill. #topnotch
hella dinners with friends
The Only Time I Did Stuff on Easter Break: a day of beaching and adventuring with Josien. #alsotopnotch

Joel taught me how to use my long exposure setting (i.e. the one good photo taken all day)

A Japanese couple asked us to take their picture for them, and then offered to take ours. #awesomebagplacement

I didn’t get a picture of the cobbler before I sliced it, because it wasn’t going to win any beauty contests. It was however, delicious.

Kate’s mom sewed her dress, it was an incredible feat
This would have been better if he was standing on the S and I was standing on the N. But eh, what can ya do.
Right before we almost got knocked off our feet
Henry was super psyched. This is one of my fave photos of the trip 🙂

Joel: prepared and adequately layered, me: freezing
Joel, handsomest man in Brooklyn. He’s been wanting this sweater for as long as I’ve known him, but it’s always been unavailable/out of reach. But in NYC, at the flagship Ralph Lauren store, they had it on sale for the first time ever. #destiny
Hang times will Bill Purray
Cara and Mel!

This year, we decided to watch all the Christmas episodes of The Office
The Westworth Boys, and the target shooting game KB bought for us. “Audrey’s American, she’ll love the guns!” har har har (jokes on me because I actually loved this game)
