Hey friends & how are we?
The Easter holidays are half way through & we are still in one piece in body, mind & soul, winning so far!!
Let’s get to it.
O N E – Pintetest is teeming with pastels/eggs/bunnies/food ideas for Easter with our littlies!
I love looking through the pins but rarely do I actually want to do the crafts. I get tempted when I see the beautiful outcome but have you ever, ever used child friendly PVA? It sucks man, it Does. Not. Stick!! It doesn’t!
This makes crafting with a preschooler very stressful for this mama as Sweet Harry doesn’t have the patience yet to wait until all goes to plan & I don’t think super glue would be appropriate for a 3.5 year old!!
So when I saw this on another blog I had to try it. It turned out great!
Lunch. Check! Easter. Check! Easy. Check check check check check check! Ding ding ding, Winner!!! & NO glue.
T W O – Petite Success
I haven’t QUITE made it to my goal weight at Weight Watchers yet but I’m celebrating fitting into petite clothes. See my post HERE!
T H R E E – Being open about Anxiety
I’m telling ya, the more open you can be about your anxieties the easier life is.
I have witnessed this in my own life. I don’t think you necessarily have to shout about it on social media as I do. But I have noticed that in one-to-one conversations it really helps & people really are super nice & quick to put me at ease & offer solutions if necessary. Try it!
F O U R – BIB Awards 2014
If you would have said to me last year I would put myself forward for a blogging award, well I wouldn’t have believed you.
But here we are! The huge surprise when I started blogging wasn’t the confidence it helped bring out of me (although that is totally awesome) but the huge, extremely friendly & helpful blogging community. I’ve never known anything like it on social media. It’s a beautiful thing!
If you’d like to nominate me you can do so until tomorrow! HERE.
F I V E – S-ombré Hair
I had my hair done, at the hairdressers! What a treat.
I took inspiration from Pinterest & decided on an ombré look. Well more like s-ombré really!
Immediately afterwards I had to take Sweet Harry to his swimming lesson, not such sweet planning!
I’m happy how it turned out! Ignore the grumpy SAHM tired look, check out the hair.
