Happy Friday! It’s the weekend and we are flying solo without Daddy this weekend. While many of my blogging buddies will be taking over London on Saturday as well, I will be thinking of all of you all while I am covered in food and toddler snot. Oh, the joys of parenthood.
This week has been a funny one. Not busy but not slow, not tough but not easy either. I can’t quite pinpoint it but I am glad it’s over and the weekend hopefully will be full of sunshine and outdoor play.
While I love a good serious post here are three bloggers that continue to crack me up with their amazing wits and funny outlooks of life’s situations. I love each of their blog for always keeping it real, making me laugh, smile and nod along in agreement to it all. Life shouldn’t be taken so seriously and they will each teach you that very quickly!
Hurrah For Gin – Reward Charts The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
Somehow my two tots found this on YouTube and while it’s not my first choice of music, after the hundredth time it kind caught on. I like the beat.
We are still trying to catch up on the seasons of Suits and loving it still too. We finally have hit season 2. Its great that USA dramas have so many episodes in each season otherwise we would be through it and sad it’s over. We are trying to space it out but also want to keep watching more. I love a good show that hooks you right in. Revenge and Scandal are still among favorites and we are waiting desperately for Grey’s Anatomy to return to the screen too.
I keep hearing amazing things about “The Theory of Everything” and dying to see it myself. I love a good true story movie! It’s on my next movie list!
The kids are strutting their new fishermen jackets. Can’t beat a good rain coat, I only wish they came in my size. They are super soft too which surprises me as rain coats usually are stiff. They were just as much in love with them as I was. Although I was so keen them wearing them in the house all afternoon, sweating. Kids these days!
While the kids have been getting new clothes, I was lucky enough to get a new bag! A Babymel Bag, in fact! What a surprise when it came in my two favorite colors and matches my blog. Bonus! I have a soft spot for anything yellow and grey as most of you know!
Even though my babies are getting older, I still very much need a nappy bag (diaper bag) on hands at all times. For Buba, I have tons of medicines, epi pen, and inhalers to pack around which take up room. For Missy Moo, she is still currently in diapers and they both need that extra outfit on hand just in case they have accidents still.
One of the things I love most about this spacious yet compact bag is it looks more like a handbag on one side so I can long use it after the diapers are gone. The two side pockets are great for keys and easy to reach necessities like Kleenex or snacks for the tots. No one wants to dig forever while they child’s nose is streaming. The pattern and colors suit me perfectly and I am truly in love with it.
I also love that it has built in side tabs to strap onto my stroller. I have had other bags that come with detachable connectors but they fall off and get lost and sometimes are hard to take on and off. These are built right into the strap and easy velcro to undo and because it sits perfectly half way down my stroller’s handle which leaves the perfect amount of room for Buba to ride on his boogie board still.
What Mom doesn’t like a new bag? I am definitely loving this Babymel bag and the fact that it matches most of my wardrobe helps too! The design is great and the price is affordable and that’s what every parent looks for in a bag, the rest is just extra!
My Blackcurrant Croissant Cheese Cake Recipe! Oh yes, this was made and destroyed as fast as I baked it. It was so delicious and so easy to make. I was quite proud of it and my neighbors got themselves one too. Lucky them!
I have been decorating again. Don’t worry just a few additions to the kids rooms. We have been using party decorations for home decor and absolutely loving it. The vibrant colors are fun and the kids think their bedrooms are play-land at the moment. I was so impressed with how they both turned out, pop by and have a peak let me know what you think!
