Choccies for me....

As we are a house full of chocoholics you can imagine how excited we get by Easter. Yet we still manage to remember just what this time is about, I even told Xavier (soon to be 5) the story behind it all today and he sat and listened and really seemed to take it all in, although I think he much preferred decorating eggs which we did for the first time today (messy messy). To me it's also about family time and although the workaholic will be mostly at work we will still get in some quality time together starting with hubby's famous pancakes in the morning.
I hope you all stay safe over the break and that you too get to have quality time with your loved ones and you also stuff yourselves silly with the good stuff.....did I mention we are chocoholics???
Happy Easter

To market to market....

Last weekend I got a "Hall Pass" and no before you start thinking I went out on the town and flirted myself silly that is so not what I did. Men and women are soooo different that to me a "Hall Pass" meant a day of kid free shopping!!
Hubby offered to take the kids swimming on his own in the morning so off I went to Mathilda's Market, the baby and toddler market that I had wanted to go to forever.
The offerings were absolutely gorgeous although a little on the pricey side.

loved loved loved this gorgeous butterfly artwork
I spent a good two hours drooling over the pretty things and all without being hassled by a bored husband and wanting children.
I didn't actually buy too much, a necklace for Willow and a t shirt for Xavier and four of these oh so yummy cake pops, have you seen these about?

Although I had a lovely time I knew there was a lot more shopping to be done and I was kid free damn it, so I sneakily stopped at DFO on the way home and has some real fun, appetite satisfied!!

I can't help it, I love love love to shop, don't all girls??

Have a happy week, Melbourne is finally having a bit of a late summer and I intend on enjoying it.

All Blissed Out

As you know from my previous post here it was our 6 year anniversary on Saturday and hubby had a few surprises in store.
Friday night I was given a list with what to pack and it included 2 pairs of bathers, very odd. So Saturday arrived and off we went, leaving the kiddies with my sister and a three page list of instructions, anal I know.
We drove for about 45 minutes further down the Peninsula until we turned into a long driveway, which is where I saw the sign for Peppers Moonah Links Resort.
Wow, what a place, our room overlooked the 18th hole and the view was out of this world.
We were booked in for dinner at their signature restaurant Pebbles and it did not disappoint. I would show you a photo of my duck dish but I had attacked it before I had the chance so here is a photo of hubby's lamb, DELISH.
The next morning we had a gorgeous buffet breakfast and then it was off to spend the day at Peninsula Springs.

 If you have never been please go. I was pampered from 10.00am until 3.30pm when we left so relaxed and ready to face the world.
If only we had been warned that facing the world meant coming home to two sick snotty kids, but not even that could not wipe the smile from my face.
Hubby you have outdone yourself, it's my turn next year, how do I top that???

6 Years?? Really??

How time flies, this Saturday hubby and I have been married for 6 whole years and what an amazing 6 years it's been.

My little family feels so complete these days and although my kids are my world, I am so looking forward to a kid free evening.
Don't ask me where we are going or what we are doing as I have no idea. Hubby has said he will give me a list in the morning of what I will need, as you can imagine the suspense is killing me.
I am not good at waiting!!

I hope you have had a lovely week,

Love Sheryn

Happy Valentine's Day


I know it's all very commercialised and it makes a lot of people depressed but I just can't help but love Valentine's Day.

It's a toy store in here!!!

All of you out there with children under five please tell me your house looks like this
The really distressing thing is that this photo was taken just after a clear out!! My two kids are not actually all that messy which is probably due to their very anal mother following them around, yet still my house resembles Toys R Us.
It's kind of hard to get motivated when you know no matter how much you clean, sort and rearrange the toys are going nowhere. The ones in the far background were placed there as they are baby toys and I though Willow, 17 months, would be too old for them now. Guess which toys she has been playing with since they were placed there? Now what to do?
I dream of the new house we will be moving to once the unit in our backyard is built, it will be large, homey yet oh so stylish. However lets be honest, most of the toys will be coming with us. Oh well, the new house will just have to have a rumpus room.
A girl can dream can't she????

Happy Thursday,

I'm Back

Yes, I have not written a post since September last year but that does not mean I left bloggy land. In fact I find I am now reading even more of your wonderful blogs and gaining so much inspiration, maybe even too much as my head is spinning.
As it's been a couple of months I will fill you on what's been happening.
First of all my little family and I embarked on our trip to Fiji...Heaven.
Whilst on the plane on the way over I surprised hubby with a card that read "Want to get married, again, tomorrow?". So after weeks of planning, on our second day in Fiji we renewed our wedding vows. Having Xavier and Willow there with us made it just so special and hubby shed tears as Xavier walked his Mummy down the aisle.
It truly was a magical day and not a soul back home knew what we were up to either so we really felt like the only people in the world.

Like all holidays though it came to an end and it was back home to face the Christmas madness (which I secretly love!)

Once that was over with and we saw in the New Year standing in our driveway watching fireworks we decided to take the kids on their first ever camping trip which was a huge success.
We actually can't wait to do it again.

 Of course there has been lots of other things going on as well but that it the most important bits.
I hope I now keep up with my little blog because it's so nice to have something just for me. Oh yeah and before I forget, plans were all approved for the unit in the backyard, we were ready to build when the water company stepped in with a problem, back to the drawing board. You could say it's never boring around here!!

Have a great week everyone,

Love Sheryn
