And this week the boys were on TV


5 weeks





This time in 5 weeks Dean and I will be packing our bags and going on our first ever holiday without the kids! We are so unbelieveably excited!

People have said to us “You’re going to Disneyland without your kids?!” Heck yes we are! And we are going to enjoy every damn minute of just the two of us together ALONE for the first time in 7 years!!!!!

If it’s any consolation we are taking them to Disney on Ice in August so they will get their Disney buzz on a scale that will still blow their little minds but won’t break the bank. We do plan on taking them one day but it is a huge scale trip from all the way down here in NZ and right now we don’t feel like being on a plane for 12+ hours with a 2 year old, 5 year old and 7 year old. Some people do it and more power to you! I think I’d be full blown crazy mum before we’d even go on the plane.


So for now it’s just the two of us hooray!


Hello world

Well it’s been another busy few weeks/months!

Going through some bridezilla bullshit at the moment with work that will hopefully blow over due to my contract protecting me. It honestly gutted me so bad right to my heart as I work so hard on every job I do and it is my baby. Thankfully for me I have a great support network of family and friends, some of who are involved in the wedding world and photography who have told me to stick to my guns and hold my head high because it was their mistake and not mine. So we will see what happens with that!

Hunter started school a few weeks ago. He is getting there! His birthday party was pretty epic so think he is still coming down from the high of that. He is so beautiful and head strong that there have been a few clashes but nothing major. He is happy and that is what is most important. It is such a different journey for us as parents to what we did with Peyton but a good journey still.

Eli is just to smart for his own good. He’s currently sitting in a cardboard box colouring it in. He is my little Rembrandt. Think we might have to hit an art gallery soon to increase his love of art. He loves creating so much. Everyone I talk to and that has seen his drawings is always really impressed at the level he draws at for his age.

He misses the boys a bit during the day but we are loving it just the two of us together. He is also currently obsessed with Frozen. I found this great printable for him

so he can build his own snowman.

The Sunday just been was filled with beautiful people and friends and new friends made too at my good friend Tanya’s (owner of NZFINCH) baby shower. Nothing is cooler than a picnic baby shower in your backyard with the sun, great food and good friends. I won a bottle of Lindauer too so that’s always a bonus!

Six weeks until holiday time for Dean and I!!! Countdown is so on!

Right that’s the latest from me!
