It was the BIG BASH DAY, today, where we celebrated Missy Moo’s 1st birthday and christening with all our closest friends and family. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to ring in such a huge milestone and special moment in her life, if I tried. Everything went smoothly and the kids were perfect angels. I actually thought at one point that someone might have stolen both of my children, well the toddler at least, and swopped with a sweet loving one. He was cuddling & kisses us all and playing so nicely with the other kids.
My decorations were a big hit. There were a few small hiccups, like clumsy me breaking the number one off the cake, two seconds after I picked it up. I hadn’t even taken a photo yet. Or the venue, which was stunning, but too dark to take a lot of photos of the party as it was the hottest, sunniest day we have had in a long time, the light was beaming from the outside. Everyone was boiling in their suits and it was the first time I thought, it’s good to be a girl in a dress, for once the men had the crappy end of the stick.
If this is your first time at L.T.M., welcome, Pit & Peak of the Week is a therapeutic way for me to rave about my high and vent about my low from the past week. I love to reflect back on a Sunday evening, before I go to bed, and share with everyone what we have been getting up to as a family.
Pit: Time is my pit this week. I wish I had more time, to do all the other things I wanted to do this week. I know I am constantly saying it, but my to do list seems to go on forever with no end in sight. The problem with me is I just turned 30 and there is so many things I want to be accomplishing and I am afraid if I don’t do them now, I will never get the chance to do them. So even though I am a mother of two, my bucket list is shining bright in front of my face, screaming you are getting old, what have you done with your life? lol I know that’s silly but that’s what drives me to keep up my spanish class even though I have no time, and teach myself to sew and be crafty in the middle of the night, or practice my cooking while the kids take their naps during the day. Those are just a few of the things on my bucket list that I am striving to achieve along side being a mother, a wife, a daughter, a housekeeper, a blogger, and be me.
Peak: Obviously the highest, high of this week is Missy Moo’s 1st birthday and christening. Nothing would beat that. It was the first day she has gone without a nap and she was amazing. Not once did she get cranky or fussy. She was full of smiles and happiness just as she always is. I am so blessed to have such a happy baby all the time. She truly fills my heart with so much joy. It was even more precious to watch Buba kissing her as she was getting baptize and holding her hand in the car on the way there. Watching them with the other kids today at the party and how nice they play with others, made me so proud. So while the party was an amazing time, the best part was being so very proud that my two kids are my two kids. I couldn’t stop hugging and kissing them. It was great to show them off to a lot of our friends that haven’t even met Missy Moo yet or seen Buba since he was little. Nothing is better than a big gathering of friends and family to show off the ones I love. Mr P even looked his best.
And as a bonus peak this week, we finished our garden finally, just in time for a hot lovely weekend. Saturday we all played in the paddling pools out back and enjoyed the flowers before us. It was truly beautiful and a nice calm way to spend our weekend together as a family. I just need to get some outdoor living furniture and accessories and it will be complete.
It truly has been a busy but amazing week! I wish I could say next week looks slower but it’s not. We have something on almost every single day until we leave for America for two months. The closer it gets, the sadder I am about leaving Mr P that long, although I am sure he will just be golfing everyday until he joins us in the states. But I am looking forward to see my family, my friends, and my culture!
