Fit n Fast Gym's Female Billboards - Quickies 4 Sale

If you follow Peachy Keen Mumma on Facebook then you may have noticed the big froo-ha that happened last week when my husband decided to take on Fit n Fast gym for the slogan they have on their employees t-shirts, "Quickies 4 Sale."
My husband was waiting for the traffic lights to change on his way back from the office when he noticed that the woman next to him was wearing a Fit N Fast T-shirt with that slogan on it. After a quick discussion he discovered that she is an employee that receives unwanted attention from it at least 3 times a day. He could tell it was unwanted by the look on her face.

20 Signs You Will Probably Never See in Australia

Yesterday was a very hard day for Australia. If you have been living in a hole and don't know what happened here's a link to the story

I'm not prepared to write anything about the topic above right now so I thought I'd bring you something a bit lighter that we could smile about.
(I must have signs on the brain since I wrote about misleading signs last week).

I give you "dah-da-da-dum"(drum roll) ...

How was my weekend affected by misleading signs you ask? Well thanks for asking.

My husband and I decided that in our over-zealous bid to get healthy we would buy each other bikes for Christmas. Ho, ho ho - you fat! 
Being the bargain hunter that I am I promptly found a great buy on a heaven blue, second hand bike on Gumtree (a garage sale type of website). I just needed my husband to help me pick it up because a) I am extremely crap at deciding if a bike is really as good as it looks, and b) because I had no idea how to hook up the bike rack to the back of my car. Be impressed, the bike rack was also from the same seller, why not kill two birds I always say. Merry Christmas honey - Surprise, you're getting a second-hand bike! Literally, you are going to have to leave the house and go get your own gift. Because I am the best wife evvvvvvverrrrr (sung in a Marvin Gaye voice).

Frank's Red Hot American Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Dip - EASY Recipes

I grew up in a large family so it was really special (and rare) when my mum would take me on a date night, just the two of us. I would always want her to take me for .25 cent wings at the Cactus Club restaurant in Vancouver.  Our wings always came with celery sticks and blue cheese dip. Every time I am back in Canada I go out for wings. It's not hard to get my Australian husband on board the wing train either and hit up wing joints with me when we are back there.
When discussing hot sauce with a co-worker one day my husband discovered that Woolworths grocery store brought Frank's Red Hot sauce to Australia! The same sauce used at a lot of the wing joints and restaurants in North America. So Aussies, if you have been longing to have American style wings now is your chance, and it's so dang easy to do at home. We have since discovered that Bibina (a wholesale supplier) stocks a 3.78Litre jug. That's HUGE! We use the hot sauce on anything we can think of, mexican, pizza, eggs and bacon, and certain soups.
If you don't like things too spicy hot then you will like these wings. I've been known to just sit and drip the sauce on my finger because I'm so obsessed with it, and NEVER end up with burning-mouth syndrome. However, if you do love very HOT wings then you will probably be able to find the spicier version of this sauce.
