111. Wednesday 27th July 2011. Shopping & a lunch date.

Day 1 of the summer holiday started with Cheerios, as all good days do...


My little ham saying "Cheese!" - which he now does whenever I get my camera out! I die!


We went shopping to get Daniel some new shoes, & I treated my favourite boy to lunch!



Yummy! Chicken dippers & wedges for Daniel Kyle, pizza & garlic bread for Momma!


With a full tummy, Babyboy fell alseep for the remainder of our shopping trip, & Momma got some lovely goodies!

Two beautiful sale dresses from Zara for Momma.

Two pairs of sandals, wellies & a trilby for Babyboy.

Waterproof mascara & false nails for the wedding (I'm wearing them now & they're a nightmare to type with!!) & Barry M Peach Melba.

Shirt for the wedding & grey jersey shorts.

Showing off his new wellies!

Checking out the new sandals!


Overall, a pretty successful shopping trip & a lovely day with my Boo! What more could I ask for?

Lots of Love
Momma B & Babyboy


110. Saturday 23rd July. Hen Night Extravaganza!

On Saturday Daniel & I stepped out for a hen night. In case I haven't mentioned, my very good friend Anneka is getting married on Friday, & I'm a bridesmaid! So we went bowling & for a meal to celebrate her last week of being a singleton!
Daniel came bowling but was very grumpy, he didn't nap because it was too loud & we spotted TWO top molars peeking through too, poor mite. Colin came & picked him up after work, so Mama could have some baby-free fun!
I love seeing photos of Mama's nights out on other blogs, so I thought I'd share some of the best ones (I put 118 on facebook!!)

Daniel Kyle particularly enjoyed the dance machine, every time the music came on he would do his happy dance! I'll try and post a video!

The beautiful blushing bride.

The Maid of Honour (i.e. party planner) made incredibly cute placemats with old photos of the bride on!

Opening pressies!


Anneka's nephew, Matthew, came too - what a superstar! He barely made a peep, unless he wasn't getting enough attention, even though we stayed out wayy past his bedtime!

Sister (MoH) & Mother of the Bride.


My lovely fairy wings!

Matthew fell asleep in my arms, so Sharon had to feed me my wine!

*She didn't actually drink those!

Thankyou to the lovely bride, and her sister for organising such a fantastic night!
I cannot wait for the wedding! Two days!! The rehearsal last night was so emotional, but in a good way! I haven't been a bridesmaid since I was little, & I feel much better now I know exactly what to do (follow the bride down the aisle, take her flowers, sit& look pretty etc) & I've also just had a spray tan done, which I am also very excited about! I will post results tomorrow hopefully!

Lots of Love

109. Wednesday 20th July 2011. MamaBaby Style [003]

Wow, I have had SUCH a busy week! School performances, cinema dates, wedding rehearsals & a hen night! After this weekend (The Wedding & MIL's graduation party) I'll be back to regular old life, except I now have SIX weeks off to spend with my gorgeous babyboy!! I love working in a school, for this exact reason! We're going to try and do something off our bucket list every day, starting next week I think!
Meanwhile, a Mama/Baby Style, to showcase mine & Daniel's (accidentally!) coordinated outfits!! The weather was a bit poor last week, so we didn't get up to much really.

Cardigan: H&M.
"Leggings": Mothercare.
George socks: Marks&Spencer.
Shoes: Primark.

[Accidental] Close-up. Thought it showed the lace on my shorts and the other materials quite well.


Momma B:
Cardigan, shirt & shorts: Primark (Ooops!)
Tights: Tesco Clothing.

Inspired by the beautiful Jessica & adorable Rowan @ TART

107. How to use a spoon 101.

I have SO many videos lurking on my laptop, that I don't upload from the camera until it's full, so they never get posted! So I think I'm just going to have random sporadic posts like this to showcase my beautiful boy in action!

This particular episode sees Daniel using a spoon like a pro. Seriously, one day he just did it! & now we're mastering the fork, but that's for another day!

Cute huh?

106. Insta-Friday.

So, thanks to the Crosbie Crew I have just discovered Life Rearranged's Insta-Friday. Just as I was thinking I was such a fail for not taking any new photos, and being too lazy to go and grab my camera, so I could just show you some of the cutest ones from Colin's iPhone, though not all Instagrammed.

I've been demoted to the floor to read bedtime stories!

Chilli, omnom.


Momma Baby snuggles!

Blurry car smiles.

Sleepy babe.

Sweaty Betty happy apres nap.


Chillin' with ma snuggie.

Bathtime for Momma.


Curry for one? Jk, I froze a load of this.


Al fresco lunch.

Water tray <3 Can't wait for it to be warmer so we can play some more!
Sleepy boy eating breakfast on the go (The day we woke up late to take my little bro to Bristol. This isn't the norm)

Tired boy at lunch.

Omnomnom, steak. Seriously.
