When it flies by as quick as it does, make sure to stop and take it all in, even the little things.
Joining in with Butwhymummywhy to cherish the little things this week.
I have been reading none stop this week, if you would believe. Besides all the amazing blogs, I try so desperately to keep up with, I am trying to branch out my cooking skills, reading some fab new recipe books that I bought. I also want to add some finishing touches around the house now that we are getting rid of the big baby stuff like the bouncer that took up half our living room and the single stroller that is taking up the dining room. I have been looking through home decor books and magazines like crazy for inspiration. I used to want to be home interior decorator so it’s always been an obsession of mine. I will be blogging a lot more about it when I return from my trip. I can’t wait. I love this book called Happy Home. It’s full of vibrant colors and corky ideas! I need to branch out of my neutrals and into some color in my life!
We watched the Great Gatsby. I had read the book years and years ago and loved it. So I was curious to see if the movie would hold up to the book. I always find the books are better than the movies in most scenarios. And even though I liked this movie, the book was still better, I thought. The trailer is amazing, check it out. Makes me want to watch it again.
I finally broke down to see what all the fuss is about these adult onesies. I am a bargain hunter especially if I don’t know if I will like something or not, so I got these at Tesco for £7. I haven’t slept as good in weeks as I did last night. Maybe it’s pure exhaustion, finally catching up with me or it was the onesie. I voted onesie and now I’m in search for some more trendy ones. If you know any, leave me a comment. lol Would love nice ones for my vacation next month as it gets cold at night where we are going. Excuse my sleepy eyes and yesterday’s makeup. lol I just woke up. I know I don’t always wash my makeup off, so sue me!
Frankie Ballard – Helluva Life
A great song to listen to this week, while I have been so busy having a helluva life for sure. This week has been jammed pack with ongoings and there is nothing better than a good song to go along with it all.
This Sunday is Missy Moo’s 1st birthday party slash Christening so I have been finalizing all the party aspects and finishing the decorations. I was so very pleased with the outcome of all of them. The tassel garland below was one of my favorites. Click the photo to see more decorations I made for the celebrations.
I finished phase three on my garden this week too. Everything is planted and the bark has been laid down. It is looking beautiful. And with a little sunshine last week they are starting to bloom and turning our backyard into a mini oasis. I can’t wait to get the grass greener and add some outdoor living furniture to finish it off! Click the photo to check out the rest of the garden.
