Friyay! I never thought I would be typing that but I am excited for the weekend ahead. It’s Blogtacular weekend, those that don’t know it’s a creative and inspiring blog conference in London. I have waited all year to attend. It’s finally here. I am not just excited to get my creative juices flowing but to also get to stay with a group of ladies that have been my rock this year.
We only have a week and a half left before we are state side and my post come from sunny America. I can’t wait more so this year than last as MM is older now and will have so much fun getting to see all her cousins and friends. My best friend’s little girl was born on the same day so the girls get to chime in their 2nd birthdays together. It’s going to be a truly special summer. B starts school in September so it’s our official last summer where we can stay so long.
It’s time for sharing what we have been loving this week for our weekly #littleloves.
You would be so proud of me, I am actually reading a real book and almost finished. I mentioned it last week called The Good Life and stuck with it for once. I put work away last night even though I have over a hundred SWM posts to read and comment on and I turned the tv off and stuck my nose in a book all evening. It felt great and it has been a long time since I just ignored all my “to do’s” and read for hours. It got late and I took my book to bed even. I used to do that every other night and I can’t remember the last time Mr P and I read in bed together. We both commented on how nice it was and we should do more of it. I really need to learn to slow down and stop thinking of tomorrow and enjoy today.
Have you heard of More Drinks? Well, neither had I but since I have we have had our fridge stocked for both Mr P and I and the kids. They make Get More and A Little More which are two ranges one for adults and one for kids. I have never ever given my children pop or juice. Not even real juice, one they never liked it and most of them these days are packed with sugar and nothing nutritious about them.
So when I got introduced to A Little More for kids I was impressed straight away. Hardly any calories like 5, and no added sugar but the best thing about them besides the great taste is that they really do have nutritional value. Depending on which flavor you choose, it’s packed for of multivitamins and immune support. My kids were ecstatic I was giving them something other than water or milk. Mostly for me it’s hard to find healthy drinks for my kids when we travel so I was looking for something I can pack in my diaper bag on all our family days out and adventures together. The kids always have regular water on hand too but it’s nice to get them an extra boost too when they are playing extra hard.
Then I tried the Get More for adults. What drove me to it in the first place was that I hate drinking plain water. It’s boring and I prefer to choose a latte instead. I am not a pop or juice drinker either so it’s really bad that I don’t drink more liquid. I have tried other flavored waters before but didn’t like the taste. Get More has so much flavors both still and sparkling I have fallen in love with a few flavors like their apple & raspberry which helps you turn food into energy. Definitely my kind of drink at only 6 calories too! Hoping this will help me drink more water and get some vitamins I might be lacking at the same time. It fits in with my new healthy me and getting fit in my thirties.
We finally watched the very last episode of Revenge ever! I am so sad the series is complete but in all fairness you can only get revenge so long. It was the perfect ending and how all the viewers I am sure wanted it to end. I won’t ruin the ending in case someone hasn’t seen it yet. It was great! We are still following along with Grey’s Anatomy which will be in last series too. So many of our shows are ending and we have tried to pick up a few and didn’t like them. Forever ended for us too a few weeks ago which was a huge favorite of both mine and Mr P. I guess that’s what summer is for playing outside and adventures and come September we will have to pick new series to like and be dedicated too. Or just read more. 🙂
We have had our swimsuits on a lot lately. We spend the weekend at Alton Towers Splash Landings last weekend. (post coming soon). It was so much fun. The kids are like little fish in the water. Then the weather turned nice and the kids have been in their paddling pools the last few days, splashing away. I don’t think a little girl can own too many swimsuits so MM got to try her latest out this week. A little number from Next. If you saw her in our Marbella photos she had a little Ted Baker one on full of vibrant colors. I think she suits both the really bright but really pastel colors too.
For a very special lady, I made my famous Lucky Charms cupcakes for her pressie. While I couldn’t really make the whole cake and carry it on a train to London and then on the tube for a few stops I altered it to cupcakes to celebrate Lucy’s birthday this weekend. And of course for the ladies that I will be spending the weekend with Morgana and Katie too. These ladies have been my ultimate rocks this year and I hope they know how much they have been there for me and I love them to pieces for it. These cupcakes are to celebrate them too! Thank you ladies.
I have been changing so much in the LTM household. I have numerous new room tours to share with you all when I return from America. I know I really am making you wait that long to see it all. But we are having a few rooms retiled and I didn’t want to share until it’s completely finished. But you can pop over on my instagram and get little sneak previews of various things going on. Let’s just say six rooms will never look the same again. I am going all out! I am always changing little things here and there but it’s been years since I actually changed big things. I am in need of a good change so I look forward to seeing the finished product as much as you all.
I know I am like a broken record but I have made it to the MAD Blog finals for Best Family Fun and I would love it if you could take one second to click HERE and vote for Let’s Talk Mommy.
