It’s been a blistering hot week here in the states. We have been busy catching up with friends and family and going on many family adventures together. I can’t believe how emotional I have been being home this time with my kids, I think because they are older and now can make their own memories where I have made so many is a truly touching feeling. We are making the most of it that’s for sure.
I am loving all the home and food magazines here. I think I have a huge stock pile now for ideas and wishlist galore. I already want to redo my front living room and dreaming of brighter colors. I scooped up one of my favorites HGTV which is a Home & Garden channel here that I have been watching while scrapbooking, I never knew until now there is a magazine too! Hurray!
Kenny Chesney – American Kids
Apologies but we are in full catch up with all the new country songs here in the USA while I am visiting. There is nothing better driving down our country driveway blaring my country. I am truly HOME!

To celebrate us at the beach this week, a place where I spent many, many weeks in the summer time as a child. I miss the beach so much but it’s good to watch my own kids running along the same sand and waves now, making their own summer time memories.
I haven’t watched much tv/movies this week as the sun has been shining bright and we have been so busy on our USA adventures. But I did see the trailer for the new movie with Kate Hudson called – “Wish I was here” that I want to see. It comes out while I am here so just might have to grab my bestie and hit the movies one night.
In true summer time fashion I am mixing it up with my pastel nail polish. I wasn’t too sure about the one finger and toe a different color look but actually it’s growing on me. This week I was styling the blue and yellow. Next week, it will be mint green with coral!
If you knew my mother, she is the ultimate crafter. Her craft shop is absolutely huge, as big as my whole top story of my house, no joke. And in it is every craft supply you can think of. I am a huge fan of scrapbooking the old fashion way and for Buba I made him a birth to 12 months scrapbook using all my mother’s fancy tools and accessories so it’s only fair to do the same for Missy Moo. I have only reached Christmas so far but we are getting there. I only wish I had all these supplies at home to continue to do more. The craft stores here are twice as big and twice as many options as the UK, if only I could afford the shipping.
I know I have mentioned it a few (many) times but we are been to the beach a few times. I will be blogging about it later with all our fun photos but here’s a sneak peak at where we have been playing this week.
