It is such a relief it’s Friday. I am thankful the weekend has come and Mr P will be around to help tag team our toddlers together. We are at that stage now where Missy Moo is no longer a baby and doing toddler things which, in itself, is a busy task at hand, and Buba is at that almost four attitude stage! The combination on somedays can be very overwhelming on my own all week.
Then the curse to this family long continues with our many hospital visits and this time it was Missy Moo! A first for her and us with her. She cut her eye open badly on the tv unit, running in the house. Long story short, it was a long night in the ER and finally back home to rest and to only wake up and have ripped it back open by rubbing her eyes. It’s going to be a long healing process with this little one but she is taking it in her stride.
With a crazy week behind us, let’s end on a positive note and look back on the little things I loved too!
I have been reading blogs more than books lately and here are a few that I have read recently that caught my eye and were great reads!
Mummy Daddy Me – A Week In Our Lives (I absolutely love her videos)
Oh So Amelia – Unusual Ways to Make Friends
The Mummy Adventure – Waiting for Baby
Tigerlilly Quinn – Our Week In Pictures
I can’t stop watching our video from last weekend at Formby. It was a gorgeous sunny day and truly one of our favorite last minute adventures together. The kids were happy to have freedom and I was happy to have fresh air. I always wished there was a record of my own childhood but my mother wasn’t into photos or videos so I don’t have much to go on. I really want my children to have something to look back on with this blog and our videos of our adventures. But also for me to look back on as the kids get older and remember how small they once were and the things we did together.
I am back to my vlogging and while I finally found a room that has more lighting to do my videos I am still trying to tweak out a few things. Like in this Shopping Haul for our upcoming vacations below I was using letters behind me although I didn’t realize my big head covered it in the background so need to work on centering the bed and moving letters for each video to the one side. Any tips to improve my video footage?
I love matching my two kids and even though it’s really tough to do with a boy and a girl when I do find matching things I fall in love with them. MM and Buba haven’t had these gorgeous Jojo Maman Bebe tops off since I got them. They are the softest tops I have ever bought for them. MM is also strutting her amazing Little & Fierce hair accessories lately.
Even though the tots have been taking over my wore list each week I got to sneak a little one of me too in for another beautiful scarf to add to my collection. My best friend from the states sent me it for Christmas and I love it so much.
Who says vegetables and cookies don’t mix? I would like to beg to differ… these scrumptious Oatmeal Courgette (Zucchini) Cookies are amazing and my kids gobbles them up like candy. The delicious glaze on top finished off this bread-cookie combo. It’s a must try and a must pin for later! I promise.
Speaking of good old pinterest. I have been getting lost for hours in Pinterest home decor boards and added a few to some new boards. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in it’s beauty and lust after a new home and new accessories. Lately as the kids have been ruining our dining room table I have been looking for inspiration for a good solid table. One that looks the part but will keep up with my two toddlers too.
