The Link List 2

The Link List

Another week gone… and we’re into March and Autumn. Just like that!

Its been a juggle of a week with both kids sick and hubby interstate for work. Thank goodness we have a quiet week end coming up. Nippers has now finished which means we finally get a Sunday Sleep In! Well, as much of a sleep in as my2morrows will allow.

I hope your weekend is shaping up well wherever you are. In the meantime, here’s some link love I’ve found around the traps…

  • Its Autumn which means blink and Winter will be upon us. Kinda depressing isn’t it! The only upside… a possible trip to the snow this year and the fact that Winter = leather jacket wearing weather. Check out 6 most affordable leather jackets under $500 from Oracle Fox.
  • I was super excited to be part of Working Mums Collective Monday Motivating Mum series. Sarah started Working Mums Collective for working mums to connect, share stories, celebrate successes and really support and empower each other no matter what journey they are on. Its like a cheer squad for working mums! Thanks lovely Sarah for having me!
  • I first saw this on a local parenting group I belong to. What an awesome hubby! Yep, Miles you really do have a way with words!
  • I’m loving all the grey I’m seeing around the place {not the 50 shades type of grey!}. Pair it with Yellow and oh my gosh. Check out Leanne from Lime & Mortar’s latest Colour Pop. Then go back and check out all of her Colour Pops and tell me how many items are on your shopping list!
  • I can’t for the life of me get the Huz to come to a Yoga class with me and have been talking up the benefits for years. So it was interesting to read this article from Fitstar on why men should do yoga.
So that’s it from me for now.
Have a fab one and enjoy this glorious early Autumn weather.

Taking Stock- February

Taking stock - February

And just like that, summer is gone. A new month, a new season, a new opportunity to take stock.

Inspired by Pip from Meet Me At Mikes, taking stock is a great way to look back at the month that was, breathe it all in, then move onto the month ahead.

February was such a busy month for us. So much going on! Forget Feb Fast {I would have been a big fat failure at that}, for us it was more like Feb Fest! All those tickets we bought way back when, finally got used and we also had a wedding, a baptism which included a quick trip to Port Macquarie and on top of all that, Miss 5 started school!

So here’s my taking stock February…

Making : This DIY shadow box. I just couldn’t part with Miss 5’s first ballet shoes
Cooking : Baking up freezer friendly muffins and lunchbox snacks.
Drinking : Too much! I really should have done Feb Fast!
Reading: Blogs, blogs and more blogs
Wanting: More hours in the day
Looking: Forward to a couple of upcoming blogger events and meeting some of my bloggy friends in real life
Playing: The school mum. It’s a whole new world!
Deciding: What to wear. Will it be hot or cool? Will be asking this question all Autumn!
Wishing: Dinner times were not so stressful
Enjoying: Family time on weekends. Now that Miss 5 is at school the weekends have become even more precious
Waiting: For our 8 year anniversary. We passed the 7 year itch. Yay us!
Liking: A new photography project I’ve joined. More to come soon…
Wondering: If I should have become a teacher instead of a marketer!?
Loving: My time with Master 3 on the days I don’t work, now that his sister is at school. I forgot how easy grocery shopping with just one kid is!
Pondering: Taking a trip to my home town to see my family
Considering: Buying new black sneakers
Watching: Revenge! It’s back.. Yay!
Hoping: Miss 5 continues the dream run she’s had since starting school.
Marvelling: At just how quickly she’s learning. It really is incredible.
Cringing: At the many measles stories I’ve heard recently. Just immunize people!!
Needing: A massage and a chiro adjustment
Questioning: Where has common sense gone? Blog post coming soon!
Smelling: Chocolate honeycomb I’m about to eat
Wearing: Peter Alexander PJ’s
Following: Working Mum’s Collective. It’s like a cheer squad for working mums!
Noticing: How much worse Peak hour traffic has become in Sydney
Knowing: That there’s more to know. Gotta keep learning!
Thinking: About the families of the Bali 9 ringleaders who are about to be executed.
Admiring: Morning people and wishing I could be one
Sorting: Through paperwork… Bills, school notes. It’s never-ending!
Buying: Actually not much lately. Strange for me but I’m sure it won’t last long.
Getting: Well into the swing of 2015
Bookmarking: these links from Jess on raising boys. Think I’ll need to refer to them as Master 3 seems to have reached the effing fours already!
Coveting: These Yoga pants
Disliking: The morning routine. Or lack of thereof!
Giggling: At My2Morrows. Always laughter in this place
Feeling: Tired. All the time!
Snacking: On a Chocolate Honeycomb. Yum!
Wishing: I could do more yoga classes every week
Helping: Miss 5 learn to read. Such a fascinating process!
Hearing: The Foo Fighters… on high rotation since we went to their concert last week!

So that’s me for Feb!

I’d love to hear from you… Pick a couple of prompts from the list above and tell me how you are taking stock?
